Hi mr .

  • 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 camera keeps saying card error? It wont let me take pics or even look at ones already on the camera?.... Just keeps saying card error. What should I do??


    Welcome to Fixya.

    There are two possible reasons why your caemra keeps on displaying CARD ERROR.

    First reason is not formatted for use in the camera. The solution there is you just have to format the memory card. In order for you to format the memory card you just have to click on this link and refer to page 89 in formatting memory card.

    Second reason is memory cards need to be clean. You just have to clean it with soft and dry clothes. If the message is repeadted. That's the time that memory card needs to be replaced.

    I hope this information give you a relief on your problem.
    Thank you for using FixYa.

    I have bought new camera, just tried it today and keeps saying error code 99? turn it off and back on and remove battery and reinstall, tried all of this and it keeps saying the same?


    Error 99 is a catch basin for a number of problems I'm going to assume that because this is a new camera that you didn't format the memory card. Formatting a memory card makes it function perfectly with the camera it's being used in. Also after pictures have been downloaded to the computer you need to format the memory card, cleaning all the old pictures off the card and giving you a fresh clean medium to use to put new pictures on. You will see also that there is this little handy garbage can icon and this is or should be used only when you find you need more space on the card when you are shooting and not the way to clear the card. The memory card should always be formatted in the camera.

    My kodak easysharecamera keeps saying the memory card needs to be


    I'm having the exact same problem! I have formatted 2 SD cards on the computer and it still didn't work. Every time I've tried formatting on the camera, it says it is and then says again that it needs to be formatted. I even went out and bought a whole new Kodak SD card, thinking I just needed a Kodak one, but no luck.
    I can't help, but I was just wondering if you ever got the problem solved because I really would like to know.

    Have just been given an S2IS without memory card brought a new one but it keeps saying memory card Fault and wont allow me to format it


    Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see this link.

    My camera wont format card


    The card needs to be formatted in the camera, not on the computer. Try going into the camera menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions.

    Camera says "card error"


    Either you have pulled it out of the computer without disconnecting the hardware with the little green Icon ( at the right hand side of the computer ).

    Or if you just brought it inserted it into a camera and it said " Card Error " then the contact points need cleaning , if you need help respond and I am more than happy to help

    Thanks

    Kodak memory card error


    Hey hardygurl198,
    What is most likely going on is you need to format the card so it will work in your camera. Every time you get a new memory card for a digital camera or if you put a memory card formatted to a different camera in a new digital camera you will need to format the memory card before you can use it. Directions on how to format your memory card are on page 27 of your camera manual, and I have provided a link to a PDF download of your manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!
