    It doesn't have a locking device. It is the wrong brand, according to a tech support line I found. Thanks anyway

    mine freezes with all characters displayed. Formatted it through USB, and manually with a card-reader. To unfreeze I have to take out the battery. Useless at this point.

Memory card is alwasy flashing in D90


This indicates a problem with the memory card.

It may mean the card is corrupted and will have to be replaced. It's also possible that you may be able to fix it by formatting it.

You can format the card either through the camera menu or by simultaneously pressing the little trash can icon button at the top left on the back of the camera and the metering button on the top right next to the off/on switch.

Both are marked with red and show "format" in tiny letters. Press both buttons for 2 seconds. A flashing "FOR" will appear in the display. When it stops flashing, the card is formatted.

If there's a problem with the card, there may be some sort of error indication. If the card can't be formatted, it is corrupt and needs to be replaced.

If you have pictures on the card, they will be lost when you format it.

You might want to try to download any pictures from the card to your computer before you format it, but if the card is corrupt you may not be able to do that.

Hi, I'm having trouble with my marantz recorder. I've reached the 999 track limit, but despite deleting older tracks it still won't let me record. The solution must be something basic I've...


Since you have reached the 999 track limit, it is possible your CF card may have been corrupted.
On page 28 of your manual you should find the instructions for formatting your CF card.
"How to Format a CF Card."
This may get you going again.

Hope this helps.

How to format a new CF Card without getting a display message that says "must format on PC"?


I have this same problem. I have 3 cards. 1 of them my Marantz PMD671 just doesn't like, and produces the error message "you need format on PC". I can format it on PC, and use it normally, but the PMD671 will not have it. The card is a cheapo Dane-elec.
I give up at this point.

Nikon D200 - problems formatting card


To use the two format buttons:
Press the "trashcan" format button and hold it. Then press the "mode" format button and hold it. Hold for approx 3~4 seconds. The screen will go blank and display "For" and the number of shots taken on the card.
Release both buttons. Then press the "trashcan" again followed by the format button. The screen will go back to normal, except the number of shots indicator, it will display "For". In a few seconds, your card will be formatted.

Although this may not solve your problem, you may have bad CF Card.
This is normal. Happens all the time.

Try another card. It should format fine. If it doesnt, take your camera to an authorized dealer/repair shop for maint.

The "For" message means you need to format the memory card.

Copy anything you don't want to lose off of the card.

Locate the LCD Illuminator Button (next to LCD on top) and the Shooting Mode button (next to Brackting button (BKT) on back). Next to both of these button should be the word "format".

Simultaneously press and hold both buttons for two seconds. The card will format. Once done, the LCD will display the number of pictures available to be taken on the card.

Marantz PMD671 recorder - download problem


I need to know what model mac you have. This would help. Also what operating system you are using. Older macs may not be compatible unless you update the system. The latest macs with the intel chip work fine with this. Once quick solution is to update your software to the latest versions by going to your apple with your mouse in the upper left corner of your screen and then clicking it. Scroll down to the title software update. click that and then click update now. Check the boxes of all you want to update and then hit enter. *Note: you must be connected to the internet in order to make these updates. I would suggest being connected something faster than dial up.
After you have done your updates, try to reconnect the Marantz. Remeber to connect it first then turn it on.
Another solution is to format the card on your mac first by using a card reader and the program Disk Utilities located in your utilities folder. It is important to choose the Fat 32 format (You will see this in your pull down menu). Note: This will erase everything on your card.
If you have a card reader, you can always take the card out of the recorder and try to read it that way as there may be a communication issue with the mac and the recorder, but if it can be read on the PC and not the mac, I doubt that is the issue.

Unformat


I have a PMD660 as well and from time to time a memory card will become "corrupted". During a recording last evening the battery ran out "prematurely" and when replaced, the 660 had the unformat error. Fortunately the card was readable in my Hummingbird card reader.

Normally when I have had UNFORMAT problems in the past I would just FORMAT the card with the computer and the 660 would then be happy with it. Not this time! The 660 still stubbornly displayed UNFORMAT! This time I ended up having to use Partition Commander to wipe out the partition on the card and then DISK MANAGEMENT in the XP's Computer Management program to re-create the partition and format FAT32. Normally when you FORMAT all data is lost so this would end all hope of recovering data from the card.

In the case of hoping to recover lost recordings I would have tried QUICK FORMAT and then tried to "recover" the data with a program like Partition Magic or Partition Commander or some other program that could re-link the blocks and create directory entries.
