The reason neither 4GB card will format is because that camera is only able to support, at most, a 2GB card. I'd suggest returning the 4GB card and getting another 2GB one.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock
generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!
Stuck lenses are probably the most common
reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair
chance of recovering use of your camera again
The fault is
commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it
having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera
was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and
tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply
dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.
If your camera
is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse
then contact the Kodak service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If
the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed
cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose
trying to fix this yourself.
Please click here
and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera
Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically
manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault.

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might
sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the
memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.
the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to
try the card in another camera.
the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader
in your camera.
If you open you sd slot and look inside with a
sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot
there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work
1. When no card is inserted / no write protection ,
the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked
card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the
card is lock.
Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the
sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence
the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera
without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card
It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because
of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you
can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the
base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to
If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a
short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled
to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Sand has undoubtedly gotten in the lens assembly. They recommend trying to spray compressed air to try to blow the sand out, or at least free up the gear mechanism. Sometimes the camera can be salvaged with this method. Sometimes you can push gently on the lens or pull, to try to free it up. Keep playing with it. If the gears are stripped, it will have to be serviced, in which case make sure you get an estimate, since the cost of repair can easily exceed the price of a new, name brand camera on sale.
Good luck. Here is a good website for lens error messages, but the things to try apply to your problem: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
Good luck, they say about half the cameras with this problem can be fixed.

I just had this problem with my D5000. I did a lot of troubleshooting to discover a Windows Code 19 error in device manager. To see whether this is your problem, go to Control Panel, select device manager. Your camera should be listed under cameras/imaging devices. If there is a yellow exclamation mark, disconnect your USB/transfer station. Using device manager uninstall the software drivers. Once uninstalled reconnect the camera and usb or transfer station. Drivers are on the camera. It should begin an automatic reinstall. When it says your hardware is successfully installed, you should be able to use the transfer station again.
If not, and you got a disc with your station, then I suggest uninstalling all the software and reinstalling. Apparently in windows operating system, if the registry entry relating to that device is damaging, it will no longer recognise the device nor load the drivers. The only way to fix the registry is to uninstall the device and reinstall.

Check the setting where the pictures are being stored. It may be still storing to the internal memory.
Also check what resolution you are capturing your snaps. Although 22 pictures should not fill your memory but high resolution photos can take 5-6 MB /photo, so you can accomodate about 180-200 photos in 1GB. Try reducing the photo resolution, if you are not planning to print them.
Also, have you downloaded all the previous snaps from the card and deleted it from the 1GB card?

You can connect your camera to your PC or laptop. then transfer all your pics to anyone of it. After that you can delete all the pics from the camera memory card. hence providing you with a full 1GB free space to click as many pics you want to.
Please respond back if this does not resolve your problem.
Have a great day.

You can use the KODAK EASYSHARE Software supplied with the camera to transfer the pictures to your computer.
You can save upto approx 333 pictures with 1 GB memory card.

hope i have interpreted this correctly.. It does not move out to full extent or soes not pull back all the way.. no matter.. try this kludge fix....
OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!
Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.
Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 180 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.
Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
now 180 cameras fixed by this trick works on all brands and these types of cameras

This problem is frequently due to corroded battery terminals inside the
camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the terminals with a soft cloth
(heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or
sandpaper). Remove any residue left in the camera by the cleaning.
Clean the terminals on the batteries in the same manner, and then
replace them in the camera. This cures most problems, but if it
doesn't work for you, check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:
It uses a simple Q&A format to diagnose problems and propose solutions.

Sounds like a loose connection in the energy pack... this will require a professional to crack it open and re connection the loose connections...
Please rate advise.

Have you tried a set of alkalines? They hold slightly more charge than rechargables. Also, your rechargables can go dead really, really fast. I use 'em but I always keep a set of alkalines handy, just 'cuz.
