iPads don't support SD cards. You can buy cheap USB adapters that will let you connect the SD card to your computer. But if your camera doesn't read the card I doubt that formatting it in a PC would help. Are you sure that your camera supports that size of SD card (some have limits as to the size they support)? If so, it may be that the SD card is bad.

As best I know - no...

However you can buy a usb to sd card adapter from a variety of sources; and this will allow you to use any computer (with a usb port) to format the sd card. They can be bought from Amazon, Radio Shack, probably Egghead and many more vendors, including some camera stores too.. They cost very little...

... or you can ask a friend to format it on their computer.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
