To format initialize a new memory card


Quick Start Basics

To replace the memory card

Press the memory card and then release it. This 
will cause it to pop out of the memory card slot 
slightly. Pull the card out the rest of the way and 
then insert another one.

• Never remove a card from the camera while 

the back lamp is flashing green. Doing so can 
cause the image save operation to fail and 
even damage the memory card.

Format a memory card on the camera before using it for the first time.


• Formatting a memory card that already has snapshots or other files on it, will delete 

its contents. Normally you do not need to format a memory card again. However, if 
storing to a card has slowed down or if you notice any other abnormality, re-format 
the card.

• Be sure to use the camera to format a memory card. Formatting a card on a 

computer will result in a non-SD standard format, which can greatly slow down 
processing time and cause compatibility, performance, and other problems.

• Before formatting a new Eye-Fi card to use it for the first time, copy the Eye-Fi 

install files to your computer. Do this before formatting the card.


Press [ON/OFF] (Power) to turn on the camera and then press [SET].

bottom (MENU) and then press [SET] (page 33).

Use [8] and [2] to select “Format” and then press [6].


Use [8] and [2] to select “Format” and then press [SET].
