Thanks for asking me to be your Tech Buddy.

On to your concern, normally yes, you would have to format the HDD/memory card. This could be done internally using the onboard format command/feature of the camera.

Alternately, if the HDD/memory card is removable, you can use a USB connected card reader or HDD adapter and then using the format command in your PC.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

C315 kodak camera will not format memory card

Just remove the card from your camera. Then make sure you already back up or copy the content on the safe place, i.e your HDD computer and burn to DVD. Then using card reader plug it to your computer and format it using computer. After that plug back to camera and then re-format using camera's menu. The first way is trying to delete/format tyour card that might corrupt. Then the second format is trying to create necessary folder for your camera to use

How do you use the self timer on a sony dscw170?

In the manual on page 27, it says press the control button "down" arrow
and on the screen a circle with a line from the center going to the upper left of the circle indicates Self Timer. Depress the Control Button until the desired mode is selected. The selections are No indicator: not using self timer, the circle with a 10 to the right : 10 second delay, the circle with a 2 to the right of the circle: 2 second delay. The shutter is released and either 2 seconds or 10 seconds later the camera takes a picture.

Sony dcr-sr47 handycam - hdd format error.

Does this camera also take a memory card? If it does, then that would mean the internal memory would be very small...much too small for a long video. If it doesn't, then it's possible you should have formatted the internal memory before an important event.

After I take a photo my camera says it's "busy, please wait" for about 10 seconds. I bought and formatted a new SD 4 GB card and it stopped doing that, so I thought it was good. After about a week, it...

I was having the same problem and contacted Casio. The issue seems to be that there are pictures/video on your internal camera memory which is conflicting with the memory card. Here is the fix:
Turn of the camera and take out your memory card Turn on the camera, click menu, setup, hit the up circle twice and click reset and click reset again until the camera resets
Then click menu again, setup, hit the up circle twice and click format, click format again until the camera formats
(This will delete the pictures from your memory card so make sure you have them saved) Turn off the camera and put your memory card back in, turn the camera on again. Repeat the format process for your memory card and you will be good to go!

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a...

IT'S FIXED!!!..:-) I'm not sure exactly what did it but I tried a little of everything. I tried taking the battery out while holding the power button then I tried taking a picture in that brief moment before the error would appear. I would get it to snap the picture but then the error would come up and I couldn't get any further. I then tried shorting out the battery. I just used a fork and held it to the 3 connections for a few seconds and then charged it for a few minutes. It still wasn't working but then I would open the shutter to turn the camera on and shut it before the error would appear to turn it off. I did that about 4 or 5 times and the camera just started working again. I don't know if it was turning it on and off so quickly or a combination of something but it's working now. I've taken that battery back out and charged it and put it back in and still it's working fine. Definitely worth a try. Oh yea, I even got the generic battery to work in it...:-)
