Card not formated

Thank you so much for your replay, I'm using the Original flash card 64 MB. after this error I tried a 512 MB flash card with the same result. I was thinking that if the capacity is high and beond the cam capacity formating at a lower capacity will be done but failed.
I really appreciate your kind support
Thank you very much
Martin

I have replaced the battery and memory card, the camera keeps saying I need to format the card, but then it says it is formatting, then gives another message saying the card needs to be formatted....


If the memory card replacement is an SDHC model card the Kodak z740 will not work with it. The memory card has to be a standard SD card of 2 gig size or less to properly function. Take card out and turn on camera. See if you get same error. You should get missing card error but otherwise be able to operate camera controls such as zoom, flash, etc. If that is fine find old card you used and place back in camera... or purchase a standard SD card from Walmart for 10 dollars

Memory card requires formatting


Have you tried a different card, that may help. Plus, there are cameras that will not "like" certain cards. If the card is...let's say...an 8 gig...some cameras can't read that or even write to it. Try a different card and a 1 or 2 gig card too. Good Luck.

Formatting memory card


Normally that means your card is locked.
Look at the side of the card, there is a tiny switch - this is the write protection switch.
You may be catching it accidently with a finger nail.

Card will not format


memory card? and SD card? whatever the card hook your camera to a usb to computer and find it under "my computer"

look at all your drives you should have like c, d , e, f, g, h, select the last drive and see if it finds your card if so try formatting it through the computer, whatever you do dont select c or d to format. if problem persists buy a new SD. I find good deals on ebay or Walmart.

Unable to format memory card


You mentioned in your post "the above camera", but I can't find the make/model of your camera? Check on the manufacturer's website to see what the largest capacity card can be used in your camera. Knowing the make/model and searching for the message on the internet can yield better answers to your question.

Memory card not reading in canon a75


So as not to spoil your vacation, go buy yourself a new compact flash card locally. They should sell them anywhere electronics are sold, including WalMart, etc. See if you can get this new card to work in your camera. If so, then you can work on trying to get your current CF to work, by trying to format it in the camera. If you can't get a new CF to work in the camera, then you likely damaged either the pins in the CF socket in the camera, or some switch that is pushed when the card is inserted (to tell the camera there is a card in it). It is unlikely you will be able to have this fixed during your vacation, unfortunately.

The camera screen displays a "Memory card requires formatting" error message. What should I do?


This error message means that the card is corrupted or formatted for another digital camera. Turn off the camera. Insert a new card or format the card. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card.
