Cannot Format SD Card

I was just given a used D3200. When I try and format the SD card, I get a message " This option is not available at current settings or in the camera' current state." Anybody know how to fix this?


  • I don't recognize that particular error message for formatting, but first I'd make sure the SD card's locking tab has not been accidentally moved to the read-only position, and also make sure that it's a card compatible with the D3200. I am pretty sure the D3200 can handle a 64 Gigabyte card, but not likely anything larger.

    If that doesn't work, I'd try a different card first, and then if that doesn't work, look for other issues with the camera.
