Question about Pentax Optio S4i Digital Camera
When I turn the camera on I get the message "memory card error". The only button on the camera which then works is the menu button but it just brings up the screen and then the same error message. Yes, I have replaced the memory card and the first memory card works in our other camera so it is not a problem with the card. My computer also fails to recognise the camera when I connect it via the usb port. Any bright ideas?

I have the same problem, just started this week. I've been using this camera for 4 years, over 8500 photos, with no problem like this...

You need to format the card in the camera. Go into the menu and scroll to "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. This will erase and initialize the card . To download pictures, the most trouble-free way is to use a card reader and download to a folder you create on your desktop.

- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.

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