  • 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 or
  • 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.

    Have Kodak EasyShare Z730, how do i format for SDHC Card 4GB?

    You don't. The Z730 works with MMC and SD cards, not with SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible. You need to use cards 2GB and smaller.

    Trying to format a media card 4gb and my kodak easyshare does not allow me to do that. am I forgetting something?

    The Z730 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

    Keeps returning to "needs to be formated" each

    There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link. By the way, the Z730 was made before SDHC came out. Only consider 2GB or less standard SD cards. They're very inexpensive these days on Amazon.

    When I insert a new memory card into my Z730 it tells me "memory card must be formatted" but it will not format. The memory card that is currently in the camera works fine!

    Hello. Some of these memory cards have a small lock slide on the perimeter. Check yours to see if in fact, it is in the lock position which would prevent you from formatting. Formatting erases everything from the card so the lock is a protection.

    please rate my answer as very helpful.. thanks. J.

    Memory cards wont format, says card is full

    Is the write protection enabled on the cards?
    Which size having the cards?

    The spec for the SD card format is going to 2GB but the Kodak C330 not compatible with 2 GB SD memory cards.


    But try an firmware upgrade.
    Why download firmware version 1.07?
    This firmware version improves memory card compatibility and provides general performance updates.
