Nikon D80 SD Card slot problem

When I insert the SD card into my Nikon D80 SD card slot, It is diffficult to insert it and even more difficult to remove it Recently, I had some plastic break off a SD card around the contacts and some could be in the slot although I cleaned it with some compressed air. I got to have it working well by the end of September. Thanks

Why my camera tell me "impossible connection" when I try to put my photos on my Mac? And what is the software which is installed when I read the CD?


The Nikon download software is called Nikon Transfer 2. I would remove the SD card from your camera and slide it into the SD slot on your Mac. If you have an iMac, the slot is located just below the CDROM slot on the right side. Do not do this by feel. Look as you insert the card because if you insert it in the CDROM slot, you may not be able to extract it. If you have a MacBook or MacBook Pro, check the manual for the location. When the computer recognizes your SD card, it will either open Nikon Transfer 2 or a folder will appear on your desk top. If Nikon Transfer does not open, just copy your pictures from the SD card folder to a folder on your Mac.

Everything on control panel is flashing. Can't operate camera.


Hi Shirley,

It sounds like your camera's CPU is stuck in a loop. First, I'd remove and transfer any pictures on the SD card in a card reader connected to your computer, followed by formatting the card. Leave the SD card out of the D80. Set the power switch on the D80 to "off" and install a freshly charged battery. If it is still flashing, a "Full Reset" may help.

Nikon recommends that a full reset be done only under direction of Nikon staff. The procedure is outlined along with graphics on this page under "Full reset". I suggest calling Nikon support to see if they think this procedure (or maybe another that they have) will solve the problem.

Are you sure the card is being inserted properly? If it's wrong, it won't go in all the way.

My computer is not reading the memory card. Nikon D80


If you are using a 4GB or higher SD card, some computers cannot read it directly from their in-built SD reader. Buy an external card reader and plug it in. Your computer should now be able to read cards 4GB and larger

When i connect my d80 to my pc it freezes


You can try to a SD card adapter for the USB slot and download without the camera. The adapter is pretty cheap and sometimes comes with the SD Card.

The PC reads the camera as an external drive, make sure your PC and OS is up to date.

I have a Nikon D80. A few months ago, the SD card would not stay in the slot, then for no reason it started working normally agan. Now it won't stay in again. It doesn't catch when you push it in, it just...


the sd card slot is designed in such a way that when you push your card inside the slot till the deepest part and when yout leave it, it fits into the slot. if you want to take the card out you have to push the card again till the deep and leave to get it out.(just like a spring aided trap). i dont think that your slot is damaged.may be you are unsure how to insert the card in the slot. if you still find problems, please write back.

D80 : Memory Card Fit


I know that an SD card could lose it's little lock if it is damaged, the worse place is in the slot where it would block another card from seating fully. (don't force it) Even in a padded case if the sd cards are sliding around loose the can get damaged or even get dirt, lint or fuzz in the "lock".  If this has happened don't probe around in there, if you do there may be further damage done, that one a camera repair shop might be able to do or you may have to send it to Nikon for repair.  Don't have the camera on or even the battery in if you can't resist trying and don't stick anything metallic in the slot.

Camera won't accept an SD Memory Card anymore


Hello

If the card works in another camera or another card doesn't work in your camera , the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea
