Formatting SD Card Error

Anytime I insert an SD card into this camera, the screen states “Memory card requires formatting”. Out of the two options displayed, I would select continue, and it would procees to load, then return to the screen that said the card requires formatting. If i choose to cancel when the screen says “Memory card requires formatting”, it says “Memory card cannot be read —(please format memory card or insert another memory card.)”. I’ve cleared the card completely and even tried a brand new card, as well as a micro SD with an adapter. Both cards are 32 GB; please help, i really want to take vintage photos with this camera!!! ☺️

Has the 32GB SD card worked in the camera before?

If not given that it is old camera technology from ~2005 it may be that the 32GB SD Card is too great a capacity for the camera to recognize.

The camera’s user manual storage capacities are quoted in MB (Megabits) which is 1000 times smaller than GB (Gigabits) , so try using a 2GB or hopefully a 4GB or 8GB SD card and check if one of those works. According to the manual you can format the SD card in the camera if it is recognized that is.

heyy i had this same problem and got it fixed.

Its very simple, all you gotta do is format the card to NTFS (should work with MacOS and Windows) I think mine was exFAT and thats why it didnt work.

Hope this helps! (:

I’m having this same issue. Can you please explain in a bit more detail what that means exactly? :)


I am also having the same issue, please let me know!


Just right click the SD card in your filepath and hit format. but this doesnt seem to work for me... I wonder if we had the filepath and could format for the camera if that would help. If any of you knnow the folder names and file path lmk


Just curious, what SD card size did you manage to get working? I know 2GB works but I'd like to get the largest size that works with it, if possible. Thank you all!

Edit: I realized this camera is only compatible with SD cards, and not SDHC. This means its maximum capacity would be 2GB, I believe.


Tried your suggestion using my laptop.... does not work.
