Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare C643 Digital Camera ?

I have a new Lexar 4GB Platinum 11 SDHC card and my Kidak Easyshare C643 can't seem to format the new card. Can you help? I get into menu and click on the format tag but the camera goes no further just round and round the formatting cycle.


Answers :

The C643 works with MMC and SD cards, not with SDHC cards. You need to go with cards 2GB and smaller.
