Hello Dear

  • 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.

    An unused memory card inserted into the kodak z740 says memory card needs formatted


    May be you inserted a memory card formatted with your PC or has some errors.
    In any case, use the 'Format' function in the camera menu. (I guess you will be able to find it if you browse thru the menus). This will enable the memory card to be used with the camera.

    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.

    When i put a new memory card in, the camera reads "memory card needs formatting", but when i click format, it does nothing


    While some Easyshare cameras will use SDHC cards, the documentation for the Z740 states that it uses MMC and SD cards.

    Try using an SD card. If that works, then stay with SD cards. If that doesn't, then there's something else wrong.

    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.

    Format card error


    Some of those cameras and cards are extremely sensitive. I would try to find another memory card and try that. You can also try to format in another camera or a computer.
