You need to buy an SD card. the Z740 works with SD and MMC cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into an SD slot, there are hardware differences which keep them from working. SD cards will work in SDHC devices but not the other way around.

Again, you need to use SD cards, which max out at 2GB. Anything larger is an SDHC card, which does not work in your camera.

Bought a 8 gb sd card for my kodax dx7630 and says it needs formatting, but then goes back to need formatting. to large? thanks


The DX7630 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card, and the DX7630 will not recognize it.

My Z740 won't format my 8G memory card. When I turn it on - it says memory card needs formatted. I tell it to format - and it just repeats the Memory Card requires formatting message. Rich


The Z740 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use MMC or SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Put in a 4gb SD card, camera says needs to format, I say ok, it say all pics will be lost, I say ok, and pick continue and then again it says needs to be formatted, and repeats this again and again


There are no 4GB SD cards. A card that size is actually an SDHC card. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different. Many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I purchased a new memory card (sandisk sdhc ) it will not format?


Get a new camera :-)

Seriously, the Z740 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the camera, they will not work. You need to buy SD cards 2GB and smaller.

SDHC Card 4 GB SanDisk will not format. get


The Z740 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. SDHC cards will physically fit into the card slot but are not compatible. It's a hardware incompatibility, not updatable in firmware. You'll have to stay with 2GB and smaller SD cards.

Same as yours


The Z740 supports only MultiMediaCards & SD Memory Cards. 4GB and larger SD cards are usually SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) types - and bear the SDHC mark on the label. These cards are not compatible with this camera. Use only MMC and SD cards. SD cards are 2 GB and under - although *some* 4 GB cards are marked as SD too; these cards may or may not work. If you purchase a 4 GB SD (not SDHC) card, make sure that it can be returned if it doesn't work reliably in your camera.
