Tell it not to format the card. What I did was to get a cheap card reader and put the card in that rather than connecting the camera to the computer. You don't waste battery life that way.

My 64 gb memory card keeps saying full on my Nikon D3000, but yet it won't let me take pictures. It's brand new, and has nothing on it. But yet, when i format the card, it does nothing. Please help?


I may be mistaken but I think that 32 Gb is the most any Nikon can handle. I suggest that you contact Nikon technical support at www.Nikon.com and discuss this with them. They can confirm the maximum size of the SD card and help you troubleshoot if the 64 Gb card is OK.

Says my memory card cannot be read


I only can ask some questions, to check everything is correct with your memory card and camera.
Is it a brand new card? no pictures on it, so in the setup menu first do a format.
Is this not a new card, but the first time in the camera?
Perhaps you first should save all the pictures (and files if the are on the card) to a computer and do a format.
Did the card work in the camera before and after you copied the photos to the computer it gave this error.
Could it be you did touch the lock switch on the memory card? Is it still in the up position, like the 64 GB card on the left. (picture below)
Did the card work in the camera before and suddenly it stopped working? now we have a problem.
If you think you still should have pictures on the card, you should remove the card and try to recover the pictures with recover software. The error can happen, when you remove the battery, while the camera is accessing the memory card. (blinking green light on the back of the camera).
If you are sure there are no pictures on the card, you can try to format the card. If the camera does not allow you to do so, remove the card and try to format the card with a computer. If the computer not sees the whole memory, and only wants to format a part, it could be there is a hidden partition and Windows 7 or 8 can't free the whole card. Then try an older computer, or another camera. 53185441-1fc7-465e-b475-400f4546e9c6.jpg

64mb is a very small memory card..... my Canon might fit just 1 picture on there, with the 8gb, just follow the camera instruction to format it..... the camera wants to prepare the card for use.

Is there a cord I need to get the pictures off my Olympus camedia c 3020 camera? I have no idea how to use my camera. I bought it as is off ebay.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I just inserted a new 8GB memory card but it tells me ''OUT OF MEMORY'' I tried to format it but still gives me the same message. Why is that and what can I do about it please?


The memory card you are trying to use in the camera is not supported. This camera is an older technology that can not recognize the large 8 GB memory capacity of the card. In fact, the largest approved card your camera will recognize is 1 GB.

The list of approved memory cards was obtained from the Nikon Site directly, and pasted below for your convenience.

Nikon has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 5700:

CompactFlash memory cards:
SanDisk SDCFB series 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, 96 MB, and 128 MB
Lexar Media 4× USB series 8 MB, 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, and 80 MB
Lexar Media 8× USB series 8 MB, 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, and 80 MB
Lexar Media 10× USB series 128 MB and 160 MB
Lexar Media 40x USB WA series 256 MB*
Microtech International Digital Flash Film 1GB*
Delkin eFilm 650MB Pro*
Ritz Big Print 8x 256MB* (Edge Code 0E1B)

Microdrive cards:
DSCM-10512 512 MB
DSCM-11000 1 GB

Use a card reader to download to your computer. Then, format the card in the camera to get it working properly again.

We took our 512 mb SD Card out of our camera to download some of the pictures to a digital picture frame. When we return the SD Card to the camera amessage appears "memory card requires formatting. I know...


You can either use a separate card reader to download to your computer, or , take the card to a Walmart store and insert the card into a Kodak Picture Kiosk machine and print the pics or make a cd of them. Then, format the card in the camera.

Nikon Coolpix 4600: Problem: It won't take any photos, it reads: THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. The card is 128 MB. I purchased a new card: 2GB but it won't work also. My manual says to clean the contacts...


1) Have you formatted the cards?

2) Try the cards in the card reader in your computer to see if they can be read.

3) Try the "switch off camera - remove and replace battery - switch on camera" trick with the original 128 Mb card in place. This will reset the camera's memory.

4) Note the type of card is important - not all cards can be used in a camera (especially some of the latest bigger ones) - check the type of cards supported by your camera.

I found this at the Nikon USA site (note that the 2 GB card is not listed - as said "Cards are not all the same" and use different drivers to operate them):

Question Which Secure Digital Cards are approved for use in the Coolpix 4600/5600? trnsp.gif Answer The Nikon Quality Department has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 4600/5600:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB, 512MB*, 1 GB
Panasonic 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB*,1 GB
Toshiba 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 128 MB*, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB

*High speed type of 10 MB/s or over

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-
party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.

You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.

There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.

• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
[BACKUP] function.
