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
Martin

Try putting the memory card in your PC and formatting it from My Computer.

If you have a camera that takes this kind of card, you can try to format the memory card from there as well.

Card can not be formatted

There is a write protect switch on the side of the card. That may be the reason why the comp is unable to use it.

Unable to format the cruser pendrive

Far too often these little things have an almost invisible read/write protect button on them. Look carefully, over the entire surface of the USB Flash Drive. You might have this switch turned to Write Protect, which means there is nothing you can do, until you turn it the other way, and allow the device to be written to.

Cheers!
