Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare CX7530 Digital Camera ?

My easyshare camera won't format my SD card, but says format card, its says continue to I do, and stops formatting instantly, but wont let me take any pictures or anything till its formatted. My computer won't do anything, since theres nothing on it, its brand new.

Answers :

To format the card in the computer card reader would be a way to see if the card can be formatted.
Make sure the little switch is up or in the position to format or write to the card.

If the card can be formatted in a card reader, then the card is okay. But the card should always be formatted in the camera you will use it in. There can be corruption of files when systems are mixed on one card.
Make sure that all the menu settings are at factory default, then set them as you please.
