My memory card won't lock in place therefore I get a "no memory" card message.

Unfortunately it sounds like the locking clip inside the SD card slot is broken or some how stuck? If you can try to look inside the SD card slot in the camera with a flash light, there should be a small clip like plastic to the left sticking out. That is what locks the SD card in place. See if anything is stuck in between like debris, you might gently poke that clip and see if it is stuck? That is what locks the SD card in place, if it is broken or missing, that will require some work to replace the plastic lock.

How to Format a Memory Card with a Nikon D700

1) Insert the memory card you wish to format into the Nikon D700's body using the memory card slot on its' right side. Make sure the power is off before you insert the card and that you place the card in correctly. The D700 will only accept CF cards, so make sure you have this type available.
2) Turn the camera on with the power switch. Only do this after you have inserted the memory card and closed the memory card slot.
3) Press and hold both the Trash and MODE buttons down for about 2 seconds. Together, these are known as the 'Format' button. The Trash button is located on the back face of the D700 body next to the Preview button, and the MODE button is located on the top of the D700 body next to the shutter button and power switch. If done correctly, the letters 'For' should appear blinking in the shutter-speed sections of both the view finder and control panel.
4) Press and hold both the Trash and MODE buttons again to format the memory card. This will delete all photographs on your memory card and format it. Do not turn off the camera or remove the memory card while the card is being formatted. If you do not want to format the memory card, simply do not press the Trash and MODE buttons the second time and wait for the blinking 'For' to disappear, which it will do after about 6 seconds.
5) Wait until the blinking 'For' disappears. The display will now show the full amount of photographs that can now be taken on the formatted card.
6) Alternatively, you can also format your memory card from the Setup Menu in the D700 LCD menus. You can access this by pressing the MENU button on the back of the D700 body, selecting the Setup Menu and pressing Format Memory Card, OK. This will format your memory card immediately.

My kodak multi card reader is displaying a orange light and is not wanting to read any memory cards

Card readers can malfunction for various reasons. First, try using this (USB) card reader on another PC/laptop ? If it works on another computer, then a likely problem is the card reader driver on your PC. You may want to go through a "device" test first on your PC, to make sure that the device is functioning properly. Then, locate and download a software driver (for this card reader), and install it. [ Yes, when you first use / insert the card reader into the USB port, the PC automatically will locate, download and install the driver on your PC... like any plug-and-play device.] So, if the device isn't working anymore, the driver may have been lost or corrupted. And recovering them may be possible from your backup ... when the device was still working properly.

If the card reader doesn't work on any other PC's, then it's likely that the card reader is "burnt" out. These are inexpensive circuits and (very) disposable items.

Fault finding

The green LED is called the memory acces lamp. When you switch off the camera is will write back the last changes. when you switch the camera on and off, the light ususaly will stay off, because nothing has changed. When you remove the card en put in another the LED will flash again. At least my D7000 with 2 card slots will do so, because someting changed and the system will write that into the memory.

Our Canon G9 camera heated up, 2 orange lights started flahing and then stopped working. The memory card now can't be opened on other cameras we have tried. Can the memory card be fixed so we don't lose...

Doesn't sound good -- do you have a memory card reader (one of those little boxes) with about 10 slots for every type of memory card -- put the card into one of those and plus the mini USB into the PC.
A printer like Epson 6000 series - that has a CARD slot for flash or SD.
Take the Memory card into a shop to develop the photo's and ask then to make a CD ROM of the Photo's so you can decide which one to print later on.

When I put a card inside my camera D200, the massage displays and blinking "For", whats the issue and how can i fix it

Sounds like a format error. Try formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try, then there may be an issue with the connectors in the card slot or the card may be incompatible.

Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manuals for the camera was written.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I cannot review pictures on my Canon PowerShot A400

Yes, the first thing to try is a new memory card. They do go bad. As for the current card, hang onto it. You still may be able to retrieve the photos once you get back to your computer using retrieval software. See this link.

Joystick blinks orange light

It sounds like it could be a couple of different things but it will be hard to tell without having the camera right in my hands. First you might want to check to see if you have a SD card in the cmaera. The internal memory may be full of your images and there is no room for anymore. If you have a sd card already in the camera then make sure it is not over 2gb. That model will only accomodate a 2gb card and nothing more.

Hope this helps

Nikon D70 won't recognize the 2 GB, type II memory card

Try to clean the contacts of the memory cards and, mostly, of the memory card bay of the camera. Use a dry anti-static fabric (e.g. what we use to clean eye-glasses). DON'T use any liquid cleaner of anything like that!
