So it seems that only 128 Mb is officially supported, however elarger cards may be OK but you would need to try, don't forget to format the new card in the camera. You may find a friendly high street shop that will let you try various card to see.

Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a memory card within the camera's specifications solved the problem.

How do i switch from internal memory to external memory? my memory chip is brand new but when i turn my camera on it says "out of memory"


Hello,E5700 does not save pictures in internal memory, uses only CF card.
Does the memory card is full capacity?

What storage capacity is the new card?
It is likely that your camera can not handle a larger CF of 128Mb (frankly dont remember).
Also this indication may be by a malfunction of the card or any damage to the connector on the camera, as pin bent or collapsed.
Best regards

New SanDisk 4GB CF Card - Coolpix displays out of memory


This is because the Coolpix 2100 and 31000 models cannot handle a card of that large a capacity. As it's only a 2MP camera anyway it doesn't need it.

The Coolpix 2100/3100 will usually accept up to a 512MB CF card, and 1GB Lexar CF cards up to and including the 24x WA write accelerated (although write acceleration itself offers no benefits on this camera). With Sandisk only a plain old and now obsolete SDFB allows a 1GB card to be used and the regular Sandisk Ultra (not Ultra II or later) will only work up to 512MB.

The camera was discontinued long before these much larger CF cards were released and Nikon no longer actively support the product so no firmware updates will be available. The hardware wouldn't support such cards anyway.

Nikon coolpix 2100- out of memory- After installing 4gb CF card


4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.

Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.

CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.

Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.

Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.

Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.

Trying out new 4G SanDisk cf memory drives in Nikon Coolpix 5700


Not sure if this helps, but it worked for me on a Coolpix 5000.
I tried a 4Gb card, and the camera formatted it and reported out-of-memory. The problem seams to be that that max 2Gb is supported

What I did was partitioned the card into 2 sections with 2Gb on each. I then formated them to FA16.
This worked - but you can only use half of the card (i.e. 2Gb)

For the tools I used a Linux laptop with CF reader. The tools are build in here (fdisk and mkdosfat). I don't know how to do it on windows.

"CF CARD CANNOT BE USED"


If you are not able to find your connecting cable. Well what you can do is you can take out the memory card and fix it into the card reader (you will get a card reader vey cheap anywhere.). and connect it to your comp. Now your card will work as a flash drive and format the card once.
May be you got a corrupted card. Hope this helps you out.. :))

CF 4GB out of memory!


Yes..its most likely an issue with the card. Try a different card if you have one, and see if this resolves the issue.

Switch on - Switch off! Coolpix3100


Coolpix uses SD cards, not CF. Anyway, try using the camera without memory card, only with internal memory. If it works, then replace memory card.
