Kodak Easyshare CX7430 losses memory when shut off

When I turn the camera to auto from off it reads { memory card requires formatting } and offers two choices {continue or cancel}: cancel shows the message { memory card cannot be read format or try another card } of which I did both, and "continue" shows an hourglass that reads { formatting } which allows pictures to be taken, only to get the same problem when I turn it back on, except then it never stops formatting, even if I shut it off! The camera worked fine until I asked someone to take a picture for me, it's been this ever since, tried new batteries, new memory card, full charge, and notta - please help!

    I have the same camera and the same problem. Can't use SD cards anymore, only the obsolete Multimedia Cards that are extremedly hard to find on shops because SD cards are the substitute for them... hope you can find a Multimedia Card. At least mine works fine with them.

I had this same problem. I couldn't get my camera to take anymore pictures while using my SD cards. So alls I did was took my cards to walmart, put all my pictures on a cd and then inserted my card again, when it brought up formating I okayed it to delete all the pictures since I already got them put on a disc. Once I did this is worked fine. Your cards can only hold so much depending on the size of your card and if you have to much on it your camera will not read it. Hope this helps you.

Formatting sd card 8gb for kodak cx7430


The CX7430 uses SD cards. Your 8GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work with this camera. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Not for use with the CX7430. SDHC cards are electronically incompatible with SD devices. Even if you partitioned an SDHC card, the camera will not read it.

I've tried a 4GB memory card in my Kodak CX7430 camera and it doesn't work. I've been able to use any size up to 2GB so I'd suggest going to a 2GB card.

Format sdhc card for Kodak EasyShare CX7430


According to the specs on the Kodak web site, the CX7430 uses SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD devices, there are hardware differences that keep them from working. You need to use SD cards 2GB and smaller.

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.

The maximum card supported by this camera is 2gb, any higher volume SD cards will not work. Also it could your card is not genuine or sometimes incompatible, without necessarily being 'broken'
