Some years ago, I bought a SDHC 8GB card for a Sanyo Xacti VPC-E6 camera and it worked fine. Then I used the card for other purposes. Now, that I'd like to use the card back in the camera, I cannot find the way to do it.
When I insert the card in the camera, it asks if I want to
full format the card. With either option, the camera takes some questions but returns to the same question.
On Linux, I've tried to create a partition and format it with
mkfs.vfat, which formats in 32 bit mode. No success. Tried to remove the partition and format the whole card, no success either. Changed the partition ID to various types, but it didn't work.
What should I do?
I have also another 1GB card formatted with one partition with FAT16 filesystem that works fine. But FAT16 doesn't seem to be the answer to this as the card is 8GB and worked fine when I bought it in first place.
