Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z740 Digital Camera ?

When I put a memory card in my camera its says it needs formating, so I push continue to format and it comes up with the message read only memory card remove write protection to capture or write to card. The switch on the memory card is in the right position. I think something is wrong with the camera, I installed a brand new memory card and got the same message.


Answers :

Is this a different manufacturer than your\015\012other cards? Is it formatted correctly (e.g., FAT16 instead of FAT32)?

\015\012Otherwise, not all cards are compatible with all cameras. There are\015\012subtle differences in the IDE drivers on the cards (or some other data\015\012structure) and those in the camera, or possibly the firmware version in\015\012the camera. It's always safest to use cards on the camera\015\012manufacturer's "approved" list.

I have a SimpleTech 2G card which can be formatted by, but will\015\012not work in my D2h. The same card works perfectly in a D1x and D2x, and\015\012I have no problem with Simpletech 512M and 1G cards. Go figure! I've\015\012had no problem with SanDisk Ultra II cards of any size (up to 4G).

What kind of card are you using? I've had to return the SanDisk 1GB\015\012Ultra II SD Plus USB three times because of formatting errors on all\015\012the devices that I used it in.

Look in your owners manual it may say which brand it prefers or a call\015\012to Kodak would be a good idea. You may want to call Sandisk also there\015\012are plenty of fakes on Ebay usually in the more expensive Sandisk\015\012cards. Doubtful you got any warranty thru that Ebay dealer, just buy a\015\012new one locally.

I hope help you with this. Good luck.

Camera does not have a memory card. No pictures exist, but I get MEMORY FULL message as soon as camera is turned on.

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks
