Kodak Z730 Memory Card won't go back in camera

All of a sudden- I can't fully reinsert any memory cards into the camera. They go almost in, but don't snap in like they used to. This happened with the memory card I use most of the time - I had it out of the camera to upload photos to a different computer. When it wouldn't go back in, I tried a spare memory card but no luck.
I don't want to just use the internal memory. Any suggestions other than returning to Kodak? I've had the camera several years already and really like it.

Take into Best Buy. Have the Geek Squad look at it and see what the deal is with the mechanism. I have a feeling it is something real simple that find by looking at it.

Keeps returning to "needs to be formated" each

There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the tiny slide switch on the side of the card, or the electrical contact switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link. By the way, the Z730 was made before SDHC came out. Only consider 2GB or less standard SD cards. They're very inexpensive these days on Amazon.

If you normally put the memory card into a card reader, first copy the pictures from the internal memory to the card. Follow the instructions here to copy the pictures:

Sandisk Memory card will not format?

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    When I insert a new memory card into my Z730 it tells me "memory card must be formatted" but it will not format. The memory card that is currently in the camera works fine!

    Hello. Some of these memory cards have a small lock slide on the perimeter. Check yours to see if in fact, it is in the lock position which would prevent you from formatting. Formatting erases everything from the card so the lock is a protection.

    please rate my answer as very helpful.. thanks. J.
