You need to format the disk ....


The drives can be read by another computer, so the problem is most likely with OS/drivers on the HP giving the error. The specific drivers required to read each drive format could be missing/corrupt. Formatting shouldn't be performed on a drive that contains data unless backed up (redundantly). It may be possible to recover any lost data using free recovery software. Often a format preserves data, erases only the file directory.

I would try a system restore on the HP. If that fails to correct it install or upgrade format specific drivers (e.g. SD/SDXC drivers). Contact Magellan about the GPS: you may have formatted the device's system partition. It is unlikely your computer had the correct drivers to format that device, and it is likely formatted in an incompatible format (such as NTFS). Does Magellan provide a utility to read the device's memory? The SD card should be salvageable by formatting on another computer using the appropriate formatting utility. (Go to https://www.sdcard.org and navigate to their formatting utility.)

From that site: "If an SDXC memory card is used through the direct SD slot of a computer without SDXC driver installation, the card may not be recognized correctly and a message to prompt formatting may appear. In this case, do not format the SDXC memory card. It may erase the data on the SDXC memory card and format the card for a different file system, making it incompatible with SDXC devices."

Tip

How to Format A Memory Card Using A Computer


If you are having problems where your camera or other device will not format or recognise your memory card, this is often because the card has become corrupted or the device is an older type and does not recognise the file system of the card.

You should always format your card with your camera or device (not your computer) every time you need to do this. This prevents the possibility of data errors and corruption.

However, if your device is refusing to format or will not recognise the card you can often resolve this by getting your computer to format it for you.

This often helps the camera or device recognise the card and make it functional again. If a format on your PC fails and the card is still not recognised then the card is either faulty or in the case of a camera exceeds your cameras max capability. In this case you will have to use a new card or one with a lower memory capacity.

If you have a card reader on your PC this is the easiest way to access the card with the computer. If not, a multi card reader is a cheap and useful device to have.

Be aware that formatting the card erases all information and or photos stored on it.

To format the card with your PC do the following:

1) Insert the card into the card reader.

2) Go to 'Start' - 'My Computer' and then find the card icon which will show as 'SD Card Drive' or 'Compact Flash Drive' or whatever card type you are using.

3) Right click on the relevant card icon. you will be presented with a list of options. Go down to Format and select this option.Now select a File system type.

PLEASE NOTE: Select FAT32 for 4GB or higher capacities. FAT for 2GB or lower capacities

4) Click start to begin the format process.

5) When the process is complete, take the memory card out and insert it into your device. If the procedure was successful the device should recognise it and it should work.

Note: Old cameras
Many previous old cameras and portable devices do not work if the card is formatted as FAT32 or NTFS file system. One of the following errors may occur if your device does not support FAT32 or NTFS:
- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.
- Error message that the flash card is not formatted.

To resolve the above error, backup your data and reformat your memory card in FAT file system

Memory card is locked, how do I unlock this?


Problems typically are pretty rare with Panasonic Lumix digital cameras. On those occasions where you do have an issue, though, look for an error message on the Panasonic camera for some clues as to how to fix the problem.
he seven tips listed here should help you troubleshoot your Panasonic camera error messages.
  1. Built-in Memory Error error message. If you see this error message with your Panasonic camera, the internal memory area of the camera is either full or corrupted. Try downloading photos from the internal memory. If the error message continues to appear, you may need to format the internal memory area.
  2. Memory Card Locked / Memory Card error message. Both of these error messages are related to the memory card, rather than the Panasonic camera. If you have an SD memory card, check the write protect switch on the side of the card. Slide the switch up to unlock the card. If the error message persists, it's possible the memory card is corrupted and needs to be formatted. It's also possible the memory card was formatted using another device that is not compatible with Panasonic's file structure system. Format the card with your Panasonic camera to fix the problem ... but keep in mind that formatting the card will erase any photos stored on it.
  3. No Additional Selections Can Be Made error message. If your Panasonic camera allows you to "save" photos as your "favorites," you may find this error message because the camera has a limited number of photos that can be labeled as favorites, usually 999 photos. You cannot mark another photo as a favorite until you remove the favorite label from one or more photos. This error message also may occur if you're trying to delete more than 999 photos at one time.
  4. No Valid Picture error message. This error message typically refers to a problem with the memory card. Most of the time, you'll find this error message when you try to play back images from the memory card and the memory card is corrupted, empty, broken, or has been formatted with another camera. To fix the memory card, you must format it, but formatting a memory card causes all photos stored on it to be lost. Try inserting the memory card in another device or in your computer and try downloading any photos stored on it before formatting it with your Panasonic camera.
  5. Please Turn Camera Off And Then On Again error message. At least this error message says "please." This error message most likely occurs when one of the parts of the camera's hardware is malfunctioning, usually a jammed lens housing. To try to fix this problem, start by turning the camera off for a few seconds before turning it back on. If this doesn't fix the problem, try resetting the camera by removing the battery and memory card from the camera for at least 10 minutes. Replace both items and then try turning the camera on again. If the lens housing is jamming as the lens moves through its zoom range, try gently cleaning the housing, removing any debris or grime. If all of these steps don't fix the problem, you'll probably need a repair center for the camera.
  6. This Battery Cannot Be Used error message. With this error message, you've either inserted a battery that's incompatible with your Panasonic camera or you've inserted a battery that has dirty contacts. Gently clean the metal contacts with a dry cloth. In addition, make sure the battery housing is free of debris. You sometimes may see this error message if you're using a battery that's not manufactured by Panasonic. If the third-party battery is working OK to power the camera, you probably can ignore this error message.
  7. This Picture Is Protected error message. You'll see this Panasonic camera error message when the photo you've selected has been protected from deletion. Try working through the camera's menus to figure out how to remove any protection labels for the photo files.
Keep in mind that different models of Lumix cameras may provide a different set of error messages than is shown here. If you are seeing Panasonic camera error messages that aren't listed here, check with the user guide for your model of Panasonic Lumix camera for a list of other error messages, or visit the Support area of the Panasonic Web site.

Card error


If you get a message as "Memory Card Error" on your camera AND you still need some of the photos , the first step is to format the card through the camera menu (Note: if you have an sD card, once you re-format your card any photos cannot be recovered.). check your camera manual to see how to format your memory card. If this does not help, try another memory card (say the small 16/32mb card that came in the box with the camera). If this card does not display a "memory card error", then the other card is at fault.

To format* a memory card:
(*instructions on formatting memory cards can be found in your camera's user manual) you equally format the card using your computer if the above method fails,if the micro sd card is inserted into the sd slot of your system the computer sees it as a storage device in that way you can format it the usual way you can format a drive on your system but mind you if you have valuable pictures on it ,they will be lost but in that case you can use the low level format utility

Clean or format card error on Olympus XD card


There are most likely some "corrupted" images on your xD card. Very often a card reader "writes" data to the card while transferring or copying images into the computer. When you re-insert the card back into the camera, it doesn't recognize the new data (because it didn't create it), and gives the error, usually requiring a complete formatting be performed. There are also problems if you use a reader to rotate images, then re-install the card in the camera. The best way to accomplish what you were doing is to transfer the images into a folder on your computer, as the camera shot them (don't rotate them first). That way, you haven't altered any data on the card. For now, however, I suggest you format the card in the camera, so you can start with a "clean slate". Good luck.

Camera won't turn on


Does the camera do this with any CF card? If you've tried another CF card with the same problem, check in the slot that the CF card fits into with a strong light to make sure no pins are bent and touching each other.

Also, was the card formatted with a Windows 2000 or Windows XP system? If you format with Windows, make sure you specify FAT32 as the file system (rather than NTFS).

Err 99 is a 'catch-all' error message that is non-specific. It indicates that the camera detects an error within its operating system, but cannot determine the specific reason.

In summary, try another card. If you get the same error, and no pins are bent, you probably need to have the camera serviced.

Memory card error


The problem seems to be that the card has been formatted incorrectly (probably by your computer, if you used it in a card reader?). Unfortunately the camera can't reformat it itself, and default computer formatting is incompatible. You'll want to download the program Lowlevelformat.exe from this website--http://olypan.quotaless.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8, install it, reformat your memory card with it, and the camera will be happy with it again.
