Question about Nikon COOLPIX L4 Digital Camera

Memory card malfunction

My 2.0 GB SanDisk memory card for my Nikon Coolpix L4 digital camera is not working. When I turn on the camera it says that the card is not formatted. When I click format it says the pictures will all be deleted. The malfunction began suddenly when I was trying to take a pictured during the end of my family vacation. I returned from vacation yesterday and my family and I greatly hope to retrieve these pictures in order to remember our great times. Please help us solve this problem, it will be greatly appreciated.

At least my L4 would not work with any card larger than 512mb. Try using a smaller card. Nikon may have fixed this at some time.

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

Hello there, I have a Nikon Coolpix L4, and I'm trying to use a 4GB memory card in it that was most recently used in a Canon digital camera. I'm getting the error that "this card cannot be...


Sorry to tell you, but your older camera will not work with 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Your camera was designed before SDHC format came out. You'll need to use 2GB or less standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and are easily found on Amazon, just in case your local store no longer carries them. For others reading, there are several other possible causes for memory card problems, with troubleshooting steps that may be viewed here.

Nikkon coolpix L1 After downloading memory card .. then putting back into camera. Reading says "cannot read memory card." Checked card out at store verified that it is good. Why does it not work in my...


A couple things you might try.. remove the card carefully and check the position of the "lock" tab. Make sure it is fully in the unlocked position - not locked or a point between the two positions. Reinsert and try again.

It sounds lie you're using a card reader to download the pictures - try formatting the card while in the card reader via computer. The card should be completely empty when the format is complete. You can even try copying files to and from the card to make sure its ok and format again. When complete, try again in camera.

If the problem persists, check to make sure the card is on Nikon approved memory card list for use with the Coolpix L1 (provided below):

The following is a list of approved memory cards for the Coolpix L1 digital still camera. These cards have been tested and approved for use with the Coolpix L1.
The L1 uses SD (Secure Digital) memory. Sandisk:
  • 64MB, 128 MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1 GB, 256MB*, 512MB*, 1GB*
Toshiba:
  • 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1 GB, 128 MB*, 256MB*, 512MB
Panasonic:
  • 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 1 GB, 256MB*, 512MB*, 1GB*
* - Cards rated for 10MB/s (high speed) Other cards have not been tested. For more details on the memory cards listed above, please contact the manufacturer.

The list came direct from Nikon Support. Other cards may work, but only those on the list are approved. Successful use of other cards can not be guaranteed.


I hope this helps!

Nikon Camera does not accept any memory card


Try formatting the card in the camera, not the computer.
