Disk is asking to be formatted - already been in use

\015 Have a disk we have been using for many months, during our last set of photos the camera tells me the disk needs to be formatted, which I did NOT do. I bought a new memory disk. Tried to format. Get error: Filesys error E00100. Whats going on?\015

Answers :

This could be a help to you,first off most,cds, and memory disk,get scratched or worn out,that causes errors or corrupt file readings. so thats why it asked you to format,formating helps clean the drive up,like a tune up on and old car.and if you dont and try to put high grade gas in before the tune up your still going to have the same problem,so in saying you have to put the old one back in,format it. and then put the new one in after you completed formating the old one.good luck,hope that helped you.
