I went out and bought a 2.0 GB SD compatible card by Dynex (only one they had) and have been able to save video on (or at least it appears that way), but when I put it in my SanDisk reader it doesn't recognize it, and asks me to format it.

I tried doing a regular format and a quick format, but nothing worked.

I tried formating it in my camera, and it appeared to complete, but when I put it back into my card reader it still asks me to format? WTF

I checked the Dynex website which doesn't give me any additional information, and I checked the Kodak website and couldn't find any informtion.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Maybe your card reader isn't compatible with your card?

Ice if the cardreader that you use is the one I gave you, it's the MMC-only cardreader. MMC evolved into SD and if formated in SD format, MMC cardreader won't be able to read it. You can get an SD reader from WalMart (buy a multiple format reader)

Read this SD vs MMC

Awesome thanks! It is the same card reader that you gave me, so that is no doubt the problem. I'll pick up a multiple card reader, and with any luck that will fix the problem Very happy

Thanks again! Smile

Thought I would post to let those wondering what the problem was. Wartex was right. I bought a multi-card reader and it works great now! Very happy

This is the card ready I bought for just over $28 and change plus tax Good
