Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera ?

CAn u format the memory card using the camera because i so not have a slot to put it in my computers hard drive???? in other words how do i format??


Answers :

Press the function button. Go to the "tools" menu. Scroll down to select the item that shows memory cards capacity. Then follow the on-screen prompts to format. A "low-level" format is best, so select this if asked. But also note that this will totally erase your card, so do this only after downloading and backing up your photos.

I have about 24 pictures on my XD card and I was trying to .rar them in one file on my PC but it was not working and so I ejected the XD card from the PC reader slot. When I put the XD card back in my camera, the message came up 'card needs to be initialized' (or similar words). I notice that to Initialize, it would erase all the files on the card which I do not want to do. Obviously, something has affected the formatting of the XD card whilst I was trying to zip the pictures. Is there some S/W

I have a Nikon D70 and i am a photographer I shot a customers photos today. I shot the first half of the photos on this compact flash card and downloaded to my computer and then put it back in the camera and formatted the card.

What is the sd card compacity limit for the DX6490. I have a 8 gigbite sd card and it just keeps asking me to format it. After formating it i put it in a card reader and it still has the pictures i put on it from my computer. My computer sees and recognizes the card but the DX6490 kodak camera does not.


The DX6490 accepts SD cards, which top out at 2GB. Cards bigger than that are technically SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into SD slots, they will not work. SD cards will work in SDHC devices, though. So, you're limited to 2GB.It's ... Kodak EasyShare DX6490 Digital Camera

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?

I changed memory card and same thing happens,I have also tried moving switch on card, This problem started when I used card to transfer pictures to computer.


Try formatting through the computer rather than from within the camera itself. Or, just open the card on the computer, select all, then delete. There's probably a large file in there somewhere that the camera just doesn't have enough ooomphh to move ... Digital Cameras

I formatted my compact flash card on my computer and when i put it into the camera it said that the card needed to be formatted, so then I let the camera format it.

I just got back from my first cruise and took so many pictures. I don't have a USB so I went to go place the memory card into my computer but it won't read the card.

When my memory card ran out of space on my Olympus Digital E 500, I put in a new card. A "card error" message appeared on the screen. This has never happened before.
