#1
Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

My lg does not read 2gb sd card.it tell me to insert a new one.Bt it can read 128 mb sd card


Your 2 Gb is not just an SD card, it is a SDHC card. The first 2Gb SD cards, still were SD, but 2Gb was the limit for the FAT 16 and 32 format and for the normal SD cards. The same happened with the hard disks. They developed the SDHC card, and made the new hardware downward compatible with the old SD cards. So in a new camera, you can insert SDXC, SDHC, SD and even MMC cards. But the cameras, card readers and phones, who were made for SD, can't use the SDHC or SDXC cards.
SDHC can work with memories up to 32 Gb and from that on, it is SDXC.
There still should be some 2Gb SD cards around, but not sure you still can fine one. The producers of memory cards now only make SDHC cards and up. Perhaps you only can get some 1Gb cards as SD card, but perhaps nobody will ever make these cards anymore.

I mannaged to buy a 4 GB SD card a few years ago, but that was the last I ever saw in the capacity. 25264488-uil2tdgcy05knvgzh4oup5lj-2-0.png

I have a Polaroid i1032 10.0 megapixel camera. the user guide says that i can use up to a 1 gb SD memory card. I've used a 2 gb SD card and it works fine. My question is can I use SDHC cards 2 gb, 4 gb, 8...


At the time your camera was made, 1GB was the max size standard SD card. Then along came 2GB standard SD, but this card also used the same format as previous cards, so yes it also worked in your camera. Now SDHC is a very different format with different file handling (although externally it looks exactly the same). I'm sorry to say, it is very unlikely that SDHC will work with your camera. Here on Fixya you'll see many folks asking why the brand new card they just bought doesn't work with their older camera. 9 time out of 10, this is the reason why.

The Optio S4 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.

My camera wont let me use an sd card


There have been two other posts in this camera's forum about this problem, you could've saved yourself a lot of trouble by reading through the other posts.
This camera only supports an SD card of 1GB maximum. The specifications on page 25 of the User's Manual state that only SD cards between 8MB and 1GB in size can be used in this camera. When I tried a larger-capacity 2GB SD card in this camera it reported that the card needed to be formatted even though the SD card worked fine in my desktop PC's SD card slot. Verify that the capacity of the SD card you're trying to use is 1GB or less.

This camera only supports an SD card of 1GB maximum. I tried a 2GB SD card and the camera reported the error you describe, that the card needs to be formatted (and it wouldn't format in the camera, either). I purchased a 1GB Duracell SD card P/N DU-SD-1024-C at Wal-Mart, and it was actually a 2GB card (tested in my desktop PC's SD slot and it was fine). Nice deal, but this camera can't use it. I bought a 3-pack of Kodak 1GB SD cards at Wal-Mart and they worked great in this camera.

Cannot seem to get my camera to work


The specifications on page 25 of the User's Manual state that only SD cards between 8MB and 1GB in size can be used in this camera. When I tried a larger-capacity 2GB SD card in this camera it reported that the card needed to be formatted even though the SD card worked fine in my desktop PC's SD card slot. Verify that the capacity of the SD card you're trying to use is 1GB or less, I suspect the error report about formatting is due to the SD card being larger than the camera can handle.
