Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can a SDHC card be used with a CF card adapter in Nikon D70s?

Due to a 'promotion', I have several SanDisk ExtremeIII SDHC 4GB memory cards. My Nikon D70s will only use Compact Flash memory cards. I purchased a SD/SDHC CF Card Adapter. This Card Adapter, with SDHC card inserted inside, will fit in my Nikon. However, the camera flashes ''For'', which I assume means the card needs to be ''formatted''. I have strictly followed the Nikon manual instructions for formatting a memory card but to no avail. Apparently, the card in the adapter does not format and, therefore, the camera does not work with the use of this card in an adapter. Before I give up, am I missing a step or something? Does anyone know the solution? Many thanks for a reply!

You would have to get an SDHC to CF adapter which could be pricey and they are hard to come by.

A 4GB memory card will be an SDHC type. 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.

When I put into my camers Nikon D40 IT SAYS IT IS LOCKED?


I sure hope you mean an SD or an SDHC card, since the D40 doesn't take CF cards.

SD and SDHC 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.

Will my Coolpix 5600 use SDHC SanDisk cards?


Sorry to say, but . . . No!

Cnet Reviews shows the specifications on your camera.
2167fde.jpg It only goes so far as SD memory, which is limited to 2GB.
It's a hurdle technology manufacturers had to jump, and now consumers must jump also.

New SanDisk 4GB CF Card - Coolpix displays out of memory


This is because the Coolpix 2100 and 31000 models cannot handle a card of that large a capacity. As it's only a 2MP camera anyway it doesn't need it.

The Coolpix 2100/3100 will usually accept up to a 512MB CF card, and 1GB Lexar CF cards up to and including the 24x WA write accelerated (although write acceleration itself offers no benefits on this camera). With Sandisk only a plain old and now obsolete SDFB allows a 1GB card to be used and the regular Sandisk Ultra (not Ultra II or later) will only work up to 512MB.

The camera was discontinued long before these much larger CF cards were released and Nikon no longer actively support the product so no firmware updates will be available. The hardware wouldn't support such cards anyway.

Nikon coolpix 2100- out of memory- After installing 4gb CF card


4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.

Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.

CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.

Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.

Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.

Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.
