Why does new card say it needs formating

This is not unusual. There are many different formats that could be put on your SanDisk, but you must be sure to put the correct one that is compatible with your camera. Consult your Kodak manual or phone a Kodak agency. Common formats are FAT16, FAT32, NTFS, EXT3, but there are many others. A lot of cameras that I have used use FAT32. If the SanDisk has the wrong format for your camera or a corrupt format, you will get this error message.
Most cameras can do the formatting required for the SanDisk, Again check manual or Agency for HOW TO. If the camera cant, you can format it on a PC, a Tablet, or a Laptop provided you know what format your camera requires. It is not difficult. Good Luck.

SD card format ng no card

  • 1 Insert your SanDisk 8GB memory card into a card reader connected to your computer.
  • 2 Double-click "Macintosh HD" on your desktop.
  • 3 Click on the "Applications" folder, then the "Utilities" folder.
    4 Double-click "Disk Utility". Look on the left side to locate the drive that says "SanDisk.
    5 Select the capacity of the drive on the left side of the window. The capacity will state "8GB" or "8,388,608 kilobytes." Click on the "Erase" tab to format the memory card. When you see "SanDisk" listed as the device's name, the capacity will be located above. You need to select the capacity and not the device.
    6 Select the appropriate "Volume Format." Under the "Volume Format" button, select the format you wish to use. Select "Mac OS Extended" if the SanDisk 8GB will only be used on Macs, or "MS-DOS (FAT)" if you will share the card between a Mac and PC. Select "Erase" to complete the format of your SanDisk 8GB memory card.

    I have a 8 GB sandisk sdhc card that up until yesterday worked in both my computer & camera. Now it errors and is unreadable and it says to format. Any program in which I can get the photos off of it...

    When you pull your card out of your pc do you eject it or do you just pull it out, sometimes a card can become unreadable if its pulled out before its finished writing. Unfortunately I don't know of any program that can recover those files.

    I have recently purchased a DMC-G1K camera. I have read the operating instruction manuel and cannot understand how to format an SD card. (page 34 in the operating instruction manuel. Where is this...

    Just incase, i wanted to point out this camera may not support SDHC cards. what this means is you cannot use any SD card over 2GB in size unless there is an "SDHC" logo on the camera. "says the manual" And one other real quick thing to check is the lock/unlock switch on the SD card make sure it's in the unlock position On page 24 there is a little more info on formating the card.if the card is currently formated in NTSC the camera wont be able to read it correctly From your PC if the card is less than 2GB you want to format it in fat12 or fat16 but if it is any size larger than 2GB you have to use fat32. on your PC open "my computer" then plug the card into the PC via Card reader or directly plugged into the camera and you will see a new drive pop up in your "my computer" window. Right click on it and select "format" and it will bring up a window that allows you to change formatting options. usually the correct options are already selected for the card size so just click the "format" button it will prompt you that everything will be deleted. once formated put it in the camera and go to the Format option again and select it. you will be prompted again that everything will be deleted select "continue format" it should take less than 10 seconds depending on the size of the card I think the reason they dont elaborate on the formating of the card is because when you click on "format" in the settings menu there isnt much that happens after that other than the prompt about everything being deleted Good luck hope i helped
