Re: kodak z812

I'd say definitely a card problem.

It's also best to use cards with high speed data transfer in this camera.

Especially when travelling, it's best to carry a few cards, not only for storage capacity, but as back-up in case a card develops a fault. If you rely on only one card and it fails.... you may lose all your pics, so carry a few spares... same with batteries.. and ALWAYS use lithium batts in ANY Kodak camera... they have huge problems with alkalines.

Hope this helps... happy shooting and enjoy your trip.

I would like to format a memory card for Kodak EasyShare CX 7300 Digital Camera. The memory card I purchased is a Sandisk 4GB

This can usually be done once the card is installed into the camera. There should be a way to FORMAT DISK with your camera settings. It is usually under MENU, Then you may see some icon with tools, scroll to that and then you should find FORMAT. Under FORMAT, you should be able to format your new memory card.

Hope this helps!

Have you formatted the card from the camera or the PC ?

If you have done it from PC, do it from the Camera and it should work.

Inserted 4G memory card...says memory card is full...when I try to format the card, get filesys error e00100.....

The C330 uses MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they are electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.

Camera keeps saying internal memory is full, even after putting a

Your internal memory is separate from your memory card. Think of it as two folders, the internal memory cannot be removed, and the memory card is one you can take with you. You can put new memory cards in it all day, the internal memory will still have pictures in it. You may wish to consider copying all internal memory to the memory card. To do this, make sure your camera has a memory card in it. View pictures on your internal memory, then from the menu option select 'copy all images to external memory.' In doing this, all of your photos will be moved, you can then clean out your internal memory by deleting everything/formatting it. :)

Bought a memory card for my Kodak 'EasyShare' C530 and I don't know if it's the right one. I bought a 2GB Memory card with MMAGFQ2WDCA-D8 on the back of the card itself. The error message I get is...

There are regular SD cards and high-capacity SD cards (HCSD). Some devices are not compatible with HCSD cards. It sounds like your camera is not compatible. You may still be able to purchase 2G & 4G regular format SD cards that will work fine.

I hope that helps.

Memory cards wont format, says card is full

Is the write protection enabled on the cards?
Which size having the cards?

The spec for the SD card format is going to 2GB but the Kodak C330 not compatible with 2 GB SD memory cards.


But try an firmware upgrade.
Why download firmware version 1.07?
This firmware version improves memory card compatibility and provides general performance updates.

Kodak z812 is problem

I had the same issue with my same brand/model camera for months. I used it maybe twice and then it decided not to turn on, no matter what I did. I finally got in touch with Kodak (the first time they told me to try different batteries, which of course did not help). I spoke with someone who figured out that I had a faulty memory card. When I removed my memory card, I was able to turn my camera on. I had to reset my date, but once I did that (still keeping the memory card out) I was able to take pictures just fine. Give that a try and see if it helps!

Another word of advice, if turns out to be your memory card, you'll need to purchase a new one. Kodak, of course, provides troubleshooting for their brand memory cards as well. Just an FYI.

Hope this helps!

Kodak Z812 shuts off automatically

It is a high-powered camera, also knows as a GREAT camera. Use CRV-3 lithium duracell batteries. I have the same camera and the same "problem", but when I use that battery it lasts forever.

Does the lens extend fully from the camera before it turns off or does is stay retracted? Has this been dropped or gotten wet recently? Try removing the SD memory card from the camera and powering it up to see if you still get the "format" prompt.
