Depending on the age and use of the card, it's worn out. They only have a limited life and each time you erase or format, you shorten it.

I keep getting a message that my memory card needs formatting. My internal memory is full. I have a Lexar multi-use 4GB SDHC card. I have no idea how to format it. I have tried everything in the...


Hello,you are on the safer side,all you need to do is just to visit the settings on your camera and go to memory card manager to format the memory card,if that is done you can now transfer datas into the memory card,but if the problem persist after then,i would suspect the memory card is corrupt,and if that arises,you will have to get another memory card to ease your stress and allow you enjoy the service of your digital camera as supposed.

wish you good luck,

Take care.

Will sdhc memory card work in my z700?it comes up card needs fomatting i press continue nothing happens


Sorry, I hate these questions because there's a yes and no answer. All brands of SD memory will work in your camera but when it comes to SDHC (High Capacity) some brands simply won't work whilst others do a great job. I can't say which ones don't but it's dependent on ther type of chip in the card.

Whatever you do, don't try to format the card on your computer it should always be done on your camera which you say you did, well done. But the fact it's not formatting is either due to the card being incompatible or damaged. Can you try it in a card reader on your computer to see if it will let you save data to it or download data from it? The memory cards are somewhat robust but simply turning your camera off whilst the card is being accessed can destroy the card completely.

My advice would be try the memory in another camera to see if it will format or try another card in your camera. Are you sure you are taking the correct steps in the camera format routine?

I wish you luck and hopefully a good format

Why My kodak dc280 can not read the memory card?


Try formatting your camera memory card If you own camera memory cards that have been used in other digital cameras, the card may not be properly formatted for use in your camera, or that data on the card may become corrupted. When these issues arise, your camera indicates that the camera memory card needs to be formatted.
When you format a camera memory card, all of the information on the card is erased. This includes any borders supplied on the card.

  3. Press a updown_icon.gif button until the format_icon.gif icon is highlighted. format.gif

How did my pictures get deleted by formatting the card?


when you format something it deletes everything leaving it how it came from the factory, it's possible that you had corrupted files and the camera advised to format, next time cancel

When i turn the camera on....it saids memory card requires formatting. then continues to say formatting will delete everything on memory card. i press continue and nothing happens. goes back to say memory...


Use a computer with memory card reader, and read the card using a computer.

If the computer says the same and does not read the card, then the pictures inside the card are usually lost.

If computer instead does read the card, then transfer all picture on computer using the memory card reader, and format the card using complete formatting.

If you need to use the camera tonight, then buy a spare memory card.
If the camera returns same error on different card, then you may have a faulty memory card slot, but that is quite uncommon.

My Kodak EasyShare C315 needs formatting.


For all the camera users whose cameras won't format...they can't accept all the info on a 2 gb memory card... install a 1 gb card...worked like a charm for me! C315 and others were made before the 2 gb card. Only 1 gb cards work in the older cameras.
