C190 does not read the SD card even when SD card format is OK . It is giving a message 'Memory card requires formatting' 'Please format memory card or insert another card' However inserting a new formatted card still gives the same message

    It is a 2 GB SD card which was working alright for some time but suddenly the problem has cropped up. The card seems to be alright as the problem remains even with another SD card. The problem appears to be in the camera hrdware or software such as driver for card reader.

    Have the cards been formatted recently on the camera? Often cards will start generating errors if you keep deleting photos and recording new ones over them rather than formatting them after downloading.

    Are you sure you're using SD cards and not SDHC cards? If a card is larger than 2GB it's an SDHC card and it won't work in the C190.

Where are you formatting these cards? You're supposed to do them in the camera.

You need to format the disk ....


The drives can be read by another computer, so the problem is most likely with OS/drivers on the HP giving the error. The specific drivers required to read each drive format could be missing/corrupt. Formatting shouldn't be performed on a drive that contains data unless backed up (redundantly). It may be possible to recover any lost data using free recovery software. Often a format preserves data, erases only the file directory.

I would try a system restore on the HP. If that fails to correct it install or upgrade format specific drivers (e.g. SD/SDXC drivers). Contact Magellan about the GPS: you may have formatted the device's system partition. It is unlikely your computer had the correct drivers to format that device, and it is likely formatted in an incompatible format (such as NTFS). Does Magellan provide a utility to read the device's memory? The SD card should be salvageable by formatting on another computer using the appropriate formatting utility. (Go to https://www.sdcard.org and navigate to their formatting utility.)

From that site: "If an SDXC memory card is used through the direct SD slot of a computer without SDXC driver installation, the card may not be recognized correctly and a message to prompt formatting may appear. In this case, do not format the SDXC memory card. It may erase the data on the SDXC memory card and format the card for a different file system, making it incompatible with SDXC devices."

My kodak C190 share camera keeps givig me an erro message for the memory card. It tells me it needs formatting and when I floow prompts it goes baxk to the same error message.


Hi

You do not actually say if you have ever had the card working in the Kodak EasyShare C190 but if the card has worked in the past and is now giving the error it could be down to corruption.

Flash memory cards can become corrupted for a number of reasons - the most common being:
1. the card is removed whilst the camera is still reading or writing to it
2. the power fails when the card is being written to or read from.

Corruption can sometimes be fixed by re-formating the card using a USB card reader attached to a computer. Most cameras will provide a re-format option (which sounds as if you have tried) but all this format does it to relay the directory structure on the card - if the card is corrupted this will not be solved.

Formatting the card in the USB reader will wipe the card of all data - NOTE, any images that were on the card will be lost forever.

If this does not solve the issue I would suggest you try another card to narrow down the fault to the card or the camera itself.

I hope this helps to solve your problem

  • 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'.

    I keep getting the error msg memory card cannont be read


    Your camera is only supporting: SD/MMC up to 1 Gigabyte

    The card that you currently have might be high speed. All should be sorted if you change the SD card to the supported MMC SD card up to 1G. There is a lever on the SD card this one might need to be changed.

    The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
    You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK

    Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

    Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
    The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.

    Cards not working with camera


    If you used the SD/MMC memory card in another brand of camera or device, you may need to format the card in your new EasyShare digital camera. (You may have noticed a "Memory Card Needs Formatting" message when you inserted the card.) CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card. To format the SD/MMC memory card or the internal memory of the camera: Transfer images to the computer before formatting the memory card. Press the camera Menu button. Highlight SETUP MENU, and then press the OK button. Highlight FORMAT, and then press the OK button. Highlight an option - MEMORY CARD (deletes everything on the card), CANCEL (exits without formatting), or INTERNAL MEMORY (deletes everything in internal memory). Press the OK button. Highlight Continue, and then press the OK button. Wait until formatting is finished before removing the card. When formatting is complete, the SETUP MENU is displayed. Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
