Memory Cards

• Use only Secure Digital memory cards. See “Approved Memory Cards” 

(

F29) for recommended memory cards.

• Observe the precautions noted in the documentation included with your 

memory card.

• Do not affix labels or stickers to the memory card.

• Do not format the memory card using a computer.

• The first time you insert a memory card that has been used in another 

device into this camera, be sure to format it with this camera. We 
recommend formatting new memory cards with this camera before using 
them with this camera.

• Note that formatting a memory card permanently deletes all images 

and other data on the memory card. If there is data saved on the memory 
card that you wish to keep, copy that data to a computer before formatting.

• If the message Card is not formatted. Format card? is displayed when 

the camera is turned on, the memory card must be formatted. If there is data 
on the memory card that you do not want to delete, select No and press the 
k button. Copy that data to a computer before formatting. To format the 
memory card, select Yes.

• Observe the following precautions while formatting the memory card, 

saving and deleting images, and copying images to a computer, otherwise 
data or the memory card itself may be damaged.
- Do not open the battery-chamber/memory card slot cover or remove the 

memory card or battery.

- Do not turn off the camera.
- Do not disconnect the AC adapter.
