OK, here's the fix. This camera has internal flash memory that is used to store settings and can be used for limited picture storage. Its use for saving setting is essential, however. If this gets corrupted then the camera won't save settings. Whoever said to format the internal memory had the right idea.
After much experimentation here's how. Remove your SD memory from the camera and turn it on. This will force it to run on the internal memory only. Run through the time/date/location setup again. It will complain about the memory card. Ignore this and press menu. Under Setup, select format. Choose format memory card and do it. This will format the internal memory. Once it is done, turn the camera off and back on. You'll notice that the problem is gone and it has remembered your last setup.
BTW, my camera is a EX-Z75. Not sure there is a Z57 model.

Your problem does not lye on any memory card. it is because the internal battery that helps the cmos "cameras internal memory" hold its settings has gone out and needs tobe replaced. all you need is 2 1.5 volt hearing aid batteries stacked and taped +-+- and soldiered in place of the old cmos battery. witch is located on the front side bottom close to the bottom left of the lens. and placed next to the speaker. get some small batteries to do this het smaller the better for placement location.Hope this helps I have done this to a few camera's and it works fine.

Good Morning :
Hope that you are wellJ
This is the response from Casio:
"The date and time will reset and the setting will need to be readjusted. The camera does not have a separate battery for the clock. The date and time will reset whenever the camera is not supplied power by the battery and USB cradle for about 24 hours."
Sounds a bit messy to me.
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.
Have a wonderful morning.
