Hi there.
Take the card out of the camera while it is off, then turn it on again, if the camera works fine turn if off again and insert the card, (make sure that the write protect is off) and turn the camera on again, it may let you format the card again.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I have a Nikon coolpix 800. I just bought a card for it: It reads--Lexar Platinum II 4GB CompactFlash 200x When I insert the card, it bring me to a message saying" that the card needs to be formatted; I follow the buttons and press format; it starts to format, but the process is aborted and the window fades and out comes the previous window with the message that it needs to be formatted.

Format error I have a Samsung digimax A40 camera. I 've just purchased a Lexar 4gb SDHC card. When I've tried to format the card for use, the screen comes up initially with "card error", then a screen to format - yes/no. When I press on yes, it takes a few moments and then comes up with Format Error, and turns itself off. Any suggestions on how to overcome this? We are heading away on holiday soon and wanted a bigger sd card as I currently only have a 256mb card in it. Thanks, Tracey.


I don't believe the camera can handle a card of that size. I believe the camera only supports up to 512MB cards, anything above that is not guaranteed. \015\012\015\012 ... Samsung Digimax A40 Digital Camera

I have a 256MB compactflash memory card for the coolpix 4300 that was bought over 7 years ago. I went to Radio Shack and Walmart looking for another. The salesperson told me that the SandDisk 8GB compactflash memory card would work. I tried it and it doesn't. The screen on the camera reads do you want to format the card. I selected yes, but it doesn't work. Is there anyway I could make the card work. It's the same size and look as the 256MB card.

I have a Nikon D70 camera. I'm using a Lexar 2GB card inside. Problem focuses on the card. Previous to this moment, card has worked fine. Today, shot photos and when I hooked up the camera to download the pics, got an error in the viewfinder (CHR). Looked at the manual, and it said problem was with the card. I removed the card, and placed it in a card reader. It worked fine and I was able to transfer the photos. Replaced the card, and still get the same error. I've already re-formatted the card,


First, memory cards don't last forever, so it may be time for a new card. Make sure you check the pins in your camera and the contacts in your card for dust/dirt. I'd guess you already looked at this, though. \015\012\015\012I've had s ... Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera
