Sometimes a flashcard stop working. depending on the Age of the card. they do have a finite amount of reads and writes. its like and SSD if there are too many bad memory cells on the chip and it can get enough errors or bad cells to the point you cannot format it. if you have a PC and have a reader for the card you can try to format it as Fat32, if that fails get a new flash card. if you are using a CF card or the Sony Memory Pro card

If the new card is bigger than 512 mb, it won't work in a C-750. The camera has a size limit of 512 mb. Anything bigger will give you a "Card error" error screen when trying to format it.

Does your camera support SD HC? Anything above a 2gb SD card is concider a HC; so if your camera can't support HC format then you can not use that card.

Did you format the card before putting it in the camera

Camera won't format media

Here is the link to the user manual if you need it; First thing to try is cleaning the electrical contacts on the card, gently with a soft dry cotton cloth. Check page 138 of the manual for instructions to reset to factory default settings - also worth trying. Have you tried formatting the card on a PC instead of the camera? What type of card are you using? The camera is compatible directly with CF cards and Microdrives, and with an adaptor can use SD and MMC cards. Possible problems are generally different for each type of card. That said, if the card will not format on a pc, then unless it is somehow password protected or write protected (depends on card type), the fault must lie with the card. Only way to be absolutely sure is to try a new card in the camera, if that also doesn't format then there is a more serious problem. From what you have described so far, it sounds as if you have a CF card, and it is faulty - these cards do have a tendency to do this. Please post back with some more details so I can be more certain. Hope this helps :)

My fuji finepix a200 camera is showing protected card. i cant get it to go off. How do I fix this

I'm going to show you a diagram that has to do with the card lock on the side of your memory card this slide is there to protect a card with images on it so it's not put back in the camera and formatted
Card locktri3mast_34.jpg
Once you have unlocked the memory card you need to format the card to make it ready to accept new pictures from your camera. I hope you download your images first before formatting.

Format the cards in the camera. Make sure you download any pictures that might be on the cards first. Use a card reader if necessary.

Can't format a memory card for my minolta damage

Some brands cannot be used by some cameras. You should stick with the big brand names like Sandisk.

If it,s an SD Type memory card. Try formatting it in a Card-reader Connected to a PC. Format it In FAT Or In FAT32. If the card is not formatted. The camera won,t understand what it is.

Formatting flash card

perhaps you have a faulty card. Try another card and see what happens. If not then it may be the operating system which is at fault.

The following alert appears, "Unable to use card. Format?".

The following conditions are presumed: - File system of the card was changed by formatting with PC. - The card was formatted with other memory card device. Basically we recommend the users to format by using the camera. (All the data in the memory card will be erased.) As the memory card may have defects in itself, please try other memory card, if you have other memory cards.
