I have a Canon EOS 60D ( firmware : v1.1.0 ) and a SanDisk Mobile Ultra 32GB microSDHC Class 10 with converter.

60D reported Card Error. I try to format with the camera as told, it said: Cannot format, change card.

Then, I try to format in my Mac with Disk Utility with FAT32 + MBR, it is read-write-able in Mac, but still, Card Error in 60D.

Then, I try to format in my Mac with Disk Utility with exFAT + GUID, it is read-write-able in Mac, but still, Card Error in 60D.

Then, I try to format in my Mac with SD Formatter with Quick Format, it is read-write-able in Mac, but still, Card Error in 60D.

Then, I try to format in my Mac with SD Formatter with Quick Format with Logical Address Adjustment, it is read-write-able in Mac, but still, Card Error in 60D.

UPDATE : I tried to use the card in an old Samsung compact digital camera PL80, it works, and it can be formatted. Strange, after I formatted the card with the camera, old files are still here and the photos are gone.

UPDATE : Double checked with Panasonic 128MB full size SD card & SanDisk 2GB full size SD card, work perfectly.

UPDATE : The SD lock is at unlock position. If I push it to lock position, 60D will report Card is locked.

UPDATE : Tried to format the card in Windows XP. It reported that the card only has 29.97GB capacity ( should be 31.xxGB ) and cannot be formatted with any disk format, including FAT32 and NTFS. It said, Windows is unable to complete formatting.

What should I do next ?

CONCLUSION

I took the card for replacement . The old one was proven faulty and the new one works fine . Thanks for everyone helping . ( Proved I was just in bad luck ... )

Have you tried another card in the camera to validate that the card is the problem, not the camera? –  forsvarir Jun 18 '12 at 7:03

any chance the protection switch is on? –  Jakub Jun 18 '12 at 14:59
    
no, the SD lock is at unlock position. If I push it to lock position, 60D will report Card is locked. –  Raptor Jun 19 '12 at 1:57
    
Have you tried the microSD card in a different converter? –  Steven Cunningham Jun 19 '12 at 16:27

It's going to be an issue with the card and compatibility. Doing a quick Google search some people are having compatibility issues along a range of devices. (Including but not limited to the Samsung Galaxy SIII Micro SDHC 32GB Class 10 Card Problem)

A new firmware version 1.1.1 is now available for the 60D as of yesterday (06/19/12).

Canon 60D Software Downloads

Even though SD card compatibility is not listed as a feature of the update, sometimes there are changes not listed in the changelog. I would do the update and then go from there.

Can you return it and get a different card? May I ask your reasons for getting a MicroSD for your 60D?

Good to know that is a new firmware. I have returned the SD card for a new one, waiting for replacement. The reason of using microSD is to allow my Tablet to load the images from 60D, and upload to social network. –  Raptor Jun 21 '12 at 2:45
