I recently bought a DMC-TZ3 and have been researching memory cards. Several sites sell cards with the camera and list the card type. I would suggest buying one of these cards. Any cards larger than 2gb must be SDHC type SD cards. There appear to different types of SDHC cards, 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0. Check out Wikipedia.org for a description. 2.0 cards are not compatable for devices developed prior to 2.0 so that may be the reason for the camera problem. So far I haven't seen anything that states what type SDHC card the camera requires. I found a computer memory site that that sells memory that they say will work. There may be others.

I have been rummaging around trying to find two solutions: 1) to get my Toshiba Satellite card reader to read SDHC cards and 2) to get my desktop USB ports to read SDHC cards. While MS offers a hotfix for XP, it does not always work because of the different Chip Sets in computers. I have also read where posters say that the SDHC card works in the compter NOW, but NOW will not work in the camera... and the SDHC card NOW works in the camera but will NOT work in the computer.... I found a tekkie article that may help clear the air... SDHC cards are formatted in Fat32x (NOTICE the "x") and SD cards are formatted in Fat32 (no 'x') and these compatibility problems arise when the user unwittingly or unknowingly RE-formats the SDHC card, either when it is put in the computer and won't read or when it is put in the camera and won't read... but just don't bother to mention that THAT is what they did upon inserting the card and only proceeded to complain about an apparent incompatibility. The camera or computer might even mislead you asking if you want to format the card..... but all is not lost. The Panasonic site gives a program AND a pdf instruction book on How To ReFormat an SD or SDHC card specifying the proper Fat32x or Fat32 format. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: SD card won't format
I just bought a Xacti HD800 and had the same problem.
The solution was :
- Turn on the Xacti with NO SD card inside
- It will ask you to enter informations like the date.
- Then at some point he will tell you it needs a card to store information and while expect you to insert a SD card
- Insert the SD cart, the formatting process will start automatically and last like half a second.
- Enjoy your new toy !
I hope this will help you.
La même en français.
La solution afin que l'appareil formate bien la carte SD est de suivre les étapes suivantes :
- allumer le Xacti sans la carte SD à l'intérieur
- saisir les info demandées comme la date etc
- il vous demandera d'insérer la carte SD à un moment afin de pouvoir enregistrer les info
- Mettez la carte, il formatera automatiquement (en même pas une seconde ...)
- C'est bon !!!!
