first check whether the memory card is out of lock by moving the lock bar in your memory card to unlock.
Then insert the card and go to start accesorries> command prompt
(right click the command prompt and run as administrator if in vista or 7). In the command prompt screen type : format (enter the drive letter and : /s ) . now the card will be formated.
CH A error indicates that the camera can not communicate with the memory card. Most often this is caused by formatting a memory card in a computer and then putting it into the camera. (Especially on 4 + gb cards). Solution is 1. Reset the camera - then it should work with cards that it worked with in the past. 2. Take the bad memory card and reformat it in your computer to FAT not FAT 32.
It should now work - although it will show capacity to be only 2 gb...
I believe at that point, if you reformat it in camera it will work at the full 4 gb.
The only reason your camera displays the message "Format Card" is because it no longer recognizes the contents of the memory card..
A couple of things you can try:
1. Reformat of the memory card itself which can be done by the PC through the card reader/USB connection or the Format command in your camera (Menu/Set-up);
2. It maybe that the card is already faulty and therefore would require replacement.
Good luck and kind regards.
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.
