I just got the Kodak Easyshare c142 for Christmas, I have tried 3 new sd memory cards and the camera says they are all unreadable.


Your camera can support SD or SDHC memory cards to 32GB beyond that the camera Firmware can not read it. If you are under the 32GB which by the way is a huge massive unnecessary size for this camera the I'd expect two things are holding you up first is the protection switch on the side of the SD/SDHC card I'll include a diagram. This annoying little switch must be i the forward position to read and write to the card.

Also you need to format the memory card to the camera Formatting cleans the surface and prepare the card to work compatibly with the camera. Deleting pictures one by one does remove the picture but it also leaves a bit of information behind and Formatting removes all this unnecessary information. This also means that the memory card should be formatted each time you download pictures to the computer hard Drive

First diagram is the lock switch.

PICTURES


The problem is simple in nature but may turn out to be more complex than we like to think of it. Normally the pictures should have been saved to the memory card and furthermore they should still be there. However, in this case, if the camera asks you to format the card, it means that the files or the card itself becomed corrupted and the camera can't recognise any of it's files. In this situation, the camera assumes the card is brand new and unformatted (or corrupted/unreadable) and asks for a format. Most cameras use a file system called FAT16 or FAT32. This is a way to manage the space on a memory device (card in this case) and it's standardized with the computer world meaning if you for example take a picture save it on the card and put the card on your computer via a card-reader, the computer will read it normally. If viceversa you place a picture on the card, the camera will read it fine also. However in your case, if the camera says the card is corrupted or it asks you to format the card, there is a great chance the pictures were corrupted and are now unreadable. You should try to place the card on a computer with a card reader. If the computer says the disk is empty, then a data transmission problem between the camera and the card may have resulted in the corruption of those pictures. Format the card on your computer then place it into your camera and make some pictures to see if this was an isolated incident or still the camera takes pictures but doesn't store them correctly.

For those pictures at least, I think there is a veeery slim chance they are still there somewhere. Practically they are corrupted beyound repair, or even worse, they are simply gone. I'm sorry for telling you the bad news, the only thing i can help with now is to try to diagnosticate if this was an isolated incident or there are chances it ca happen again. Like i've told before, first format the card in your computer, then put it in the camera, then make some test pictures and try to see if you can copy them from the card to the pc. Let me know if something happens or if you need more help.

When I insert my sd card into my camera it says memory card inserted please change to internal ram.. What will I do?


I think you may mean it says 'no memory card inserted...'etc. but most cameras don't need to say this when there really is no card in place - if there is any internal memory they just switch to it automatically. Perhaps the garbled message is because the card is recognised but unreadable so you might like to try formatting it, either by using the (camera's) menus, or by right clicking the card's icon in the My Computer page (on PC), to bring up the format option

My hp photosmart r707 gives me a message (card is unreadable) i have inserted a new card and i get the same message each time.


SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. Some cameras have a capacity limit, and won't work with cards that are too large (in memory terms).

One thing you could try is formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try, then there may be an issue with the connectors in the card slot or the card may be incompatible. However, I would expect the camera to report that the card needed formatting rather than that it was unreadable, if formatting was the only problem.

We insert a memory chip into our Kodak EasyShare C190 camera. The read-out informs us that the memory card requires formatting. We click on "OK." The camera goes into a "formatting" mode, then informs us...


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 2 GB) and KODAK SDHC Cards (up to 8 GB).
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.
You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.1: Menu, Cam settings, Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

My camera wants me to format my card but then i will lose all my images its saying card unreadable replace card or format card


Hi,
Have you tried taking the card out and trying to print the pictures or having them put on a CD? That is the first thing to try. Then go ahead and format the card. It might be a defective card but the only way to tell is to try the above suggestion.
Best wishes!

Card is unreadable


Take out the card and transfer the photos to the computer. After you verify that your photos are safely on the computer, reinsert your card in the camera and proceed with the formating.
