Zoom Q2n not formatting micro SD card

Post by sparkysings » Fri Jan 13, 2017 10:51 pm

I just got the new Q2n and inserted a class 10 micro SD card and it won't format it. It tells me to press the red dot to format and when I do, it just spins and spins and nothing happens. I can't even turn it off. I have remove the SD card to turn it off.
Can anyone help me with this? Is it the Q2n, or the SD card. :cry: :(

Help!!

Have you checked the "write" tab on the SD card to make sure the card is not write protected? What memory size is the SD card and is the memory size at or below the maximum size Zoom states the Q2n supports?

Thanks Jim,
The micro card is not write protected as there is no switch on the card. It's a 32Gb Class 10 SDHC card which matches the specs and is well below the size of the maximum capacity.
I'm contemplating seeing if My H2n can format the card and then seeing if that produces another result. What do you think?

I would format the card in a computer then try formatting in the Zoom.
