If the camera keeps showing an error to format the SD card, and the SD card has been reformatted using a PC but the error persists:

  • Check the capacity of the SD card. It must be supported by the device.
  • Ensure the SD card is formatted in FAT32 format.
  • Check the capacity of the SD card. Large capacity cards cannot be formatted to FAT32 by default on PCs.
  • Use third-party software such as EaseUS Partition Master to format large capacity cards to FAT32.
  • The easiest way is to format the SD card on the camera itself:
    • Go to Camera Settings
    • Select Storage Settings
    • Click on the FORMAT button
