Go to http://timescience.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/how-to-downsize-a-4gb-compact-flash-card-to-2gb/. That will make the card 2gb and it worked like a charm on my Nikon 4300 coolpix. It will hold 1059 pictures on the fine setting, 2083 on normal, and 4167 on basic. Hopefully this helps, I looked on the computer for hours until I found this.

SOURCE: Flash memory card

Perhaps it didn't complete formatting. This happened to my mom and I tried her card in my camera and it wouldn't work there either. We had to replace. You might take it back since you just bought it. That way, you will know if it's the card or the camera.

SOURCE: compact flash card

It can if it is compatible, meaining I use the Canon and I have to use the type II cards, it accesses fine.. I wouldn't go to the type IV as I have heard they hang when acquiring pictures.

I'm sorry but you can't use the camera as a webcam. Here is why. There is no function on the camera to stream video.
Also, the camera goes into standby mode after 30 seconds (by default). And 3 minutes after that, it shuts off completely. It does that to save batteries. Again. I'm sorry. Good webcams average between $20. to $50. usd and they are made to work 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

You can use a 4GB memory card in your camera, as long as it's an SD card.

If you get that message, it means you haven't formatted the card for use in that camera. You have to format the card in the camera before you use it.

Even though the solution was not what you prpbably wanted, don't let it stop you from rating it a fixya. I would appreciate it. Let me know if I can help you with anything else, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

SOURCE: Bought a new memory card for my nikon coolpix 3100 card wont work

I got a similar probelm, did an upgrade from 1.2 to 1.3, didn't sort the problem. I also search for a hack - no such luck :(

The only answer is to go and buy a smaller card.

How to use the flash when I take a night video? with a nokon coolpix p900


You can't. The flash, as the name implies, is for a short burst of light, useful for taking stills but not for video. For video, you need a video light, something that stays lit for a longer time.

One example of such a device is Flashpoint On Camera LED
Please note that I am NOT endorsing this particular device, or any other.

Can i use 4GB Compact Flash in Nikon Cool pix 4300 Nikon Digital Camera?


A 4GB CompactFlash card should work in your Nikon Coolpix, but you may only be able to use 2GB of it's space once formatted correctly. This camera formats the cards in the FAT file system. That basically means that one can only use up to 2GB of memory (2048 MB).

My video recording function works fine, but when on camera mode , the pictures turn out white or with a bunch of lines through them. I've tried changing all adjustments as far as color , etc. Still same...


The issue here is with the CCD sensor inside witch gave out on you, what you might want to do is have a shop replace it due to the delicate eletronics inside would be your best bet.

please do leave feedback and ratings for your free answer

I received a new Compact Flash card (4GB) for my Nikon and when I put it in the camera it says out of memory?


If there are any pics in the internal memory, you need to get rid of them. With no card in the camera, download any you want to save and then go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the new card and do the "format" thing again.

What is the correct size memory card for a E 5400 nikon


The 5400 takes Type I and Type II Compact Flash (CF) cards and Microdrive cards.

There is a chart in the "First Steps" section of the manual listing approved cards. None of them are larger than 1G.
