Help...CF Card Says need formatting
"I have an older Kodak camera. I want to use a CF card (32GB) to expand the capacity of internal memory, but I've seen a warning trying to format my CF card. I searched the reason from google. Someone said that too large memory card in the camera may damage the card, is that true? I have never heard before that, I guess it might be the incompatibility problem between the camera and the CF card. I'm not sure, so ask for help. What is the right way to slove this problem?"
If I were you, I would firstly reinsert the CF card into the camera to make sure camera can properly read it. If the unformatted error message continues to pop up, you do not have to format the card and just ignore the message. If you follow the guide to format your CF card, the data on it can still be rescued.
