K70 formatting card

Every time i insert the same memory card back into my new k-70, screen reads card must be formatted - therefore all pictures have to be erased. I thought cards get formatted only once. I do not have this issue with my few years old k-3. Any feed back is greatly appreciated.

Are you safely "ejecting" the card after you're done with it in your computer? It could be that some data is getting corrupted. I'd format it once more in camera and you should be fine after that.

When you put the card in your computer, are you making it read only, so that corruption cannot occur ?

Rightly or wrongly I always format a memory card when I put it back in my camera. Touch wood I've never had any problems .

K70 formatting card

Hi,
Are you using a windows or mac - macs are particularly bad in that if you do not eject your card properly it will read that it must be formatted when you put it back in your camera. I have a K70 as well and this occurs every time if not ejected properly prior from removal from the SD card slot. You can use image recovery software such as lexar image rescue to recover your files if required. Hope this helps
