Hello. I just bought the panasonic dmc-fx 75 camera. I like it, but when I put in the new 32 GB sdhc card with supposedly class 6 rating (Transcend brand) and turn it on, this is my message: 'This card...

Just format it using your camera. There is an option there, usually in the settings/memory card tool where you can format your memorycard. Don't format it using your computer.

Thanks for using Fixya!

M having Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH3 model, My problem is when i on camera, it shows " This Card is not formatted for this camera & not suitable for movie recording. please help me.

Sounds like the card is from another camera or was formatted on a computer. If there are pics on it you want to save, download them using a card reader if necessary. Then, format the card in your camera.

Memory card likely has temporary(needs formatting) or permanent problems(needs replacing, common for off branded china junk).

First format the mem card on your camera by pressing center Menu button then scrolling down to the end of the menu to Format. If this does not work, and you have bought a Name Brand SD card; Sandisk/Kingston/Patriot etc, return it to place of purchase with receipt, or creditcard use to purchase it, and they will replace it.
