My camera got a grain of sand in the card slot. ( Long day at the beach:-) ). Once I got that out, the write protected window went away, Yay!

Trying to transfer pictures taken on nikon coolpix L4 to apple imac computer. i have the cable plugged in to computer. camera says preparing to transfer but doesn't transfer. what can i do? i have...


Welcome to Fixya

Try the alternate way of transferring the pictures to your computer instead of using cable.

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. Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. Just drag&drop pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files.

The L4 and its software will work with any size SD cards. Make sure you get SD cards, not SDHC cards. SD cards go up to 2GB, while SDHC cards start at 4GB and go up.

My memory card is saying that it is write protected what do I do?


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

My camera says memory card is write protected and I can't get it off to take pictures?


Take a look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Memory card is write protected


Hi..

Suddenly the card you have inserted is locked so that's why is says write protected. To unlocked the it get or remove your card from your camera. You can see in your memory card there is a small button her try to slide the button to unlocked. Insert your memory card back to your camera and try to take a picture it will take a picture.

Good luck!

Digital camera problem NIKON coolpix l4


I have the problem by turning on... But the camera start when I press about 10-15 times on the switch. I think the problem is not coming from the switch because by turning of, it goes the first time.
I have tryied to take the batteries or/and the memory card out but it doesn't help. By taking out the memory card I never lost the pictures...

Nikon Coolpix L4 Memory card problem


Back up all the pictures on the card and then format the card.. Everything will be back to normal.
Note: While formatting select FAT32 file system as it is more reliable..

Memory card malfunction


Pictures can sometimes be recovered by sending the card to a service provider, or by downloading software designed to recover the pictures from the card. It is not clear weather the problem is the card or the camera, however to recover the pictures from the card would be the same process. If you do not have one you will need to buy a USB card reader to load the card on the computer. Consider buying another card to test in the camera, if you so wish. If the camera is new enough also consider contacting the manufacturer for warranty assistance. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
