I misplaced my memory card Panasonic Lumix HD __CHD

Customer Question

I misplaced my memory card for my Panasonic Lumix HD __CHD Lite camera. I ordered a new one - Transcend 200X 32 GB. Ho do I get my camera to recognize it? When I turn the camera on, the message comes up that pictures will be recorded to built-in memory.

Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. First, did you make sure the card is compatible with the camera. If it is, you may need to format it before you can use it.

How do I know if it compatible or not and also how do I format it? I have lost the manual.
Expert:  Dan replied 5 months ago.
There should be a model number associated with the camera and should start with DMC. Can you provide that for me please?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
DMC-ZS7 is the model number and the serial number is *****

Okay thank you. Your camera can use SD memory cards 8 MB – 2 GB, SDHC memory cards 4 GB - 32 GB, or SDXC memory cards 48 GB - 64 GB in size. Is this the type of card you are using?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Transcend 32 GB Class 10 SDHC Flash Memory Card (TS32GSDHC10E) is the card I have that I can't get to work. This fits the information of types of cards you said would work on my camera. When I put it into the camera, the says that the photos will be recorded to built in memory. I want to know howto change any settings, etc. so the photos will be saved to the card.
