Kodak camera cx7430

My camera will not read a memory card. I keep getting a message to format even a new picture card. When I try to format the card it will not format saying the card is corrupt. Cards will work in another camera but not this one. Any suggestions?

The maximum card supported by this camera is 2gb, any higher volume SD cards will not work. Also it could your card is not genuine or sometimes incompatible, without necessarily being 'broken'

When i turn on my camera it says the memory card needs formatting i follow the instructions but it doesnt work and keeps saying to format the memory card. this happens over and over and i cannot take...

To understand the photo loss situation, consider a scenario: You format a memory card in Digital Camera, and start to capture some pictures. However, while capturing pictures, your camera shuts down due to low battery. Now, after recharging battery, when you try to access those photograph on the card, you receive the following error message on camera screen:

The Card requires formatting: Additionally, the camera is unable to capture any new photographs.

The main cause for the above error message is corruption of memory card due to conking of battery while a read/write operation was running.

These memory card needs to be formatted before you save any new pictures. It is always a good practice to take backup of card and format it before use. This enables you to fight with any damage done to the memory card and to erase the old data saved on the card. However, the probability of card getting corrupted again (after you have saved new data) still exists.

First try formating with an external SD Card reader connected at PC and test it.

Can i format a 2gig section of my memory card only??maybe split it into two x two ??

Not for use with the CX7430. SDHC cards are electronically incompatible with SD devices. Even if you partitioned an SDHC card, the camera will not read it.

I've tried a 4GB memory card in my Kodak CX7430 camera and it doesn't work. I've been able to use any size up to 2GB so I'd suggest going to a 2GB card.

I have a Kodak EasyShare C633. I have inserted a new memory card & it keeps say "Memory card requires formatting". I pressed "continue" to start the format, but it keeps giving the same message. How do...

This camera requires either a sd or a mmc card, and must be put in with the front of the card (the card with the label on) to the front of the camera. If installed backwards or with the label facing the back, the camera internal parts can be damaged beyond repair.
Make sure you can read pictures on another sd or mmc card from another camera. If it can read, make sure you have the right kind of card. This camera came with a 16meg card, so make sure that it can read larger cards, most should, since this camera was made in about 2006. However some cameras may have problems with large cards such as over 2 GB. Just a thought, and try it.

Make sure that the memory card you used is compatible w/ your camera. If same issue persists after using the compatible card, camera is unable to detect the memory card. Card compartment is defective. call 1.800.235.6325 for repair.

Can't download upgrade Version 7

Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

My digital camera will not turn on

My problem is now fixed! I put in a fresh set of recently purchased non-rechargeable batteries into the camera.

I was out-of-state visiting my Dad and taking many photos of his things. I ended up replacing my batteries with some he had around the house just prior to the first instance of camera's problem.
[I do not know the age of Dad's batteries!]

I went to Kodak's website [link]

On this page is a heading "Troubleshoot And Repair," and I followed the link - Step-by-Step Solutions & Repair .

Kodak Easyshare CX7430 losses memory when shut off

I have the same camera and the same problem. Can't use SD cards anymore, only the obsolete Multimedia Cards that are extremedly hard to find on shops because SD cards are the substitute for them... hope you can find a Multimedia Card. At least mine works fine with them.
