Unable to format kodak 8gb sd hc card on either CX7430

\015 Unable to format the card on my computer as well,\015

Answers :

Hello.

This particular camera only allows SD cards up to 2gb. SDHC or otherwise cards with 4gb or up will not be recognized.

As far as your computer being unable to format it, make sure your card reader is capable of operating with 8gb cards. Sometimes older card readers require firmware upgrade from their manufacturer. Please make sure your card reader is capable of operating/formatting other 8gb cards, to discard yours as faulty.

Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Card error I have a e-1. Two memory cards with 1 and 2 gb. I get a "card error" message when I insert either into the camera. I brought it to one camera shop. They said that a couple of the pins (that connect the memory card to the brains of the camera) were bent. Recently took it to another repair shop and he inserted a card with less memory and the camera worked. Is it the cards or the camera? Will the camera work (with bent pins or whatever) if I get a new memory card?
