I received a message on my digital camera that say format memory card. What does that mean?

It means that the camera cannot recognise the memory on the card and assumes that it needs formatting (instructions vary by camera for this but it will be in the manual).

If this is a new card, that is not unusual, or if the card has been formatted by a computer it's not unusual.

If the card has any important images on it, and this message has occurred for no reason (i.e. it's not a new card or a recently formatted card from a PC card reader) then try removing and re-inserting the card, it may be just a connection issue.

It can also mean that the card is corrupted, and needs a reformat to try to fix it.

Just remember that formatting will remove any data on the card.
