HOW DO I FORMAT MY LEXAR SDHC? i PUT IT IN MY CAMERA AND IT SAYS TO FORMAT. I SAY CONTINUE AND THEN IT GOES INTO THIS LOOP. ''NEEDS TO BE FORMATTED.''


Answers :

Try using your camera as a card reader and connecting it to the computer. see if it will open up as an external storage device and try formatting through windows. if that doesn't work, try an external card reader. note that some newer laptops will have a sd slot. if not this, then it might be a faulty card.

I put a 4.0 gb sd card into the camera slot correctly. The camera says that the card must be formatted to work correctly. I format the card, but it just tells me I need to format again. There were pictures on the card initially and after the C643 tried to format, I rechecked and there were still pictures. I deleted all the pictures, and then tried to re-format, however I still get stuck in the format again and again loop. What exactly can I do to correct this problem?
