My camera will not read the memory card. I have never had any problem with my camera. Now it shows that my card is not formatted. Every card I put in my camera does the same thing. Camera will not let me format the card. Also sometimes when I shut off the camera, it still shows that it is on.

Confirm first whether the memory card is still good or bad by using a card reader, put the camera memory card into the card reader then connect it to your system, see whether the system will read your card, if the system doesn't read it, it simply implies that memory card is bad and you need to replace it with a genuine memory card, but if it works it implies that the card slot on the camera is bad. so, your either need to service your camera or you replace the memory card.

Your Minolta camera uses file format, which is not recognized by PC and vice verse. When you insert, PC can't read it, and asks to format. But when it is formatted for PC, your camera can't read it. Try to format it in camera, if it's not possible, then get a new memory card and use USB cable to copy images.
The memory card that has failed- do you have access to a card reader for the computer?
If not we will try to use the camera.
Download from www.konvar .com - PC Inspector.
This is a recovery program install it and follow the prompts to locate the card in reader or camera will show on the computer a new drive.
Then allow the camera to scan the card and you to select where any recovered images to go.
Do not ever format a card.,any card via a computer
That does it in. For camera use it will not be recognised.
Put the card in the card reader and if there is anything at all on it delete it.
Try to reformat in the camera again- failing that -new card.
