Hello,

How long have you had this memory card? What you can do is to try and format it first using your computer. And then reformat it again using the camera.

To format from your computer, you should a memory card reader so that you can access the card. After the usual device detection process, locate the drive and then for Windows users, right click it and then hit Format. Accept the default settings but do not forget to check Quick Format. Let the process finish. And then proceed with the formatting process on your camera.

Just bought the Nikon S01 camera. Charged it completely, turned it on, completed setup, took a few pics. Then when I turned it off and back on, it says "Card is not formatted. Format card?" If I select...

Save the pictures you have taken to your computer, and then choose the Format Card option. You have to Format the Card to make your camera work. If this does not work, contact the Camera's company web site and ask them for advice

When I turn on my Kodak Easyshare it says "Internal memorys is full." The lcd will show what I'm looking at but I am unable to do ANYTHING!! can't delete, take picture, change mode..etc. help please.

You need to go into the menu and look for "Format Memory Card" or something close to that. It will usuall ask: Do you want to format...? Choose yes and all will be erased. CAUTION: Make sure you save your pics to your computer before formating the memory card. Let me know if you need further help.

Formatting what?

I hate to sau it but the reformating process does delete all files on the card. If you have either a xd slot on your pc (MAC) try to off load or make copies, Then follow the formatting directions in the owners manual. Good Luck
