Re: coolpix 5200 will not read sd card

Hope it's not the reader in the camera, first try rubbing the card contacts gently with an eraser and blowing in the slot. It may solve it, if not looks like an expensiver repair job.

Nikon Coolpix S3300 can not read memory card but card works fine in other devices.

Bob. Your camera can work with all modern SD cards. But it is picky sometimes. It like to work with a format the camera makes. So before you use a memory card, do format it in the camera like it is printed in the manual on the bottom of page 18

My Kodak M530 had been working alright since I bought it on December 2010 but suddenly stopped reading the SDHC card about a week ago. The card is fine because I can read the content from my Mac....

Using the internal memory locks some cameras into that mode. To get your card to work again, do this...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, re-insert the card and it should work.

Camera doesn't get past welcome window with memory card installed

Have you tried another brand of memory card ?
Try a memory card from a friend that has been used for a while. If it locks up with other cards then you have problem with camera. Check if needs to be set to read from memory cards above certain sizes ?

Coolpix 5200 + 4GB SD card

Any size SD card will work. The capacity limit is with the card, not the camera. All the camera does is serve as a recorder/reader for the card.

No memory card will work in my Coolpix camera

Nikon has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 3200:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16/32/64/128/256MB
Panasonic 16/32/64/128/256/512
Toshiba 16/32/64/128/256MB

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.

Multi Media cards (MMC) are not recommended and should not be used.

Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"

Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.
