Question about Pentax Optio 330GS Digital Camera
During switch on I get this message: this card is not formated ! with all means I am unable to format any card or even the old flash card nor picture taking possible.
Is the only way to trough away? Or is there a Service Centre somewhere.
Thank you so much for your replay, I'm using the Original flash card 64 MB. after this error I tried a 512 MB flash card with the same result. I was thinking that if the capacity is high and beond the cam capacity formating at a lower capacity will be done but failed.
I really appreciate your kind support
Thank you very much

Memory card info and old cameras
Many previous old cameras and portable devices do not work if the card is formatted as FAT32 or NTFS file system. One of the following errors may occur if your device does not support FAT32 or NTFS:
- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.
- Error message that the flash card is not formatted.
- Error message indicating that the card is anomalous.
To resolve the above error, backup your data and reformat your memory card in FAT file system.
If the error persists, re-format the memory card using your camera or portable device.
