    OK, try Formatting FAT32 On a PC, with an adapter. Then put in camera. Or it maybe faulty, and or the camera cannot "Detect" it properly.. Again sometimes a "Format" will make it work again, anything that was on the card will be erased though by formatting.. If there is data on the card you will need to try and recover with a PC first before formatting. If you cannot format or read on a PC then it is definitely faulty.

    My kodak easyshare c180 wont read a memory card and keeps saying memory card requires formating. When I format the card it just asks me to do it again

    You should probably get a USB card reader, take the card out of your camera, put in the card and connect it to the computer. Then try formating the card through Windows using the FAT file system (not NTFS).
