Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera ?

Is there a limit to the size of the SD card I can use (like 2GB)? I've tried 4GB and 8GB cards and the camera says they need to be "formatted". Is there a way to format outside the camera?

\015\012This camera is limited to a 1GB card according to the manual. However it should be able to handle cards up to 2GB. From your description, it certainly sounds that 4 and 8GB exceed its capabilities as it is an older model.

I have this camera. It uses a 2GB card but no larger. I have a few cards & just replace one with another when it is full. I also bought a Nikon D80 which takes much larger card formats & the pics are fabulous. But, for the price the EasyShare takes great pics in digital format.
