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.

I think it should take more that 4G's. Maybe it was the way you inserted the SD card. These Nikons can be a bit funny about such things. So if you haven't already sorted the problem I'd suiggest you turn off the camera. Remove the batteries then remove the 'other' SD card. Then reinsert you bigger capacity SD card then the batteries. Then turn on the camera. It's just like re-booting a windows computer. Hopefully it will come up 'roses'. Cheers

SOURCE: 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.

How do I get my nikkon coolpix 2100 to accept a 4 mb compact flash?


Hi,

Are you sure it is 4 MB or GB ? If your Compact Card is 4 MB, it may not be possible for the Camera to Accept it as the Picture file size are big so the least you need to use is 1 GB Card.

For more details, Check Page 10 on the manual. Click on the link below to download the manual for your camera.

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).

I own a Nikon Coolpix 5700 and recntly I face a problem with the memory card, The memory card is Nikon Compact Flash 32MB and the camera shoes that I can have Basic 51 photoes, Noraml 26 Fine 13 and Hi...


Nikon Coolpix 5700 Digital Camera memory card failure:

This camera has capabilities which far exceed the data storage of a 32 MB memory card. Put what you can onto the Nikon Compact Flash card and purchase another, larger, 2 GB card for your other storage. This should easily meet both the needs of the camera and your own. The original card must have had data deterioration or a mistake was made in transferring the pictures.

Go to Google and download their Picasa App; it is great for anyone transferring their photography from one storage type to another and you can use it for publishing material to the Web or to your family group e-mail.

Please comment on the success of this solution!

How much compact flash memory can the 5700 support


The Nikon CoolPix 5700 can support up to 1 GB CF type memory cards, but only of a certain brand. Nikon maintains a list of approved cards - those brands and capacities that have been tested to work 100%. Other cards may work too - but no further testing of memory cards is being done with this model camera.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

Will by Nikon Coolpix 5700 support a 4 GB compact flash card ??? thanks


Your camera uses CF type I or II cards. Since it was first introduced in 2002 I believe it has no support for 4GB cards. But since it's a 5MB camera, you can get some 500 frames on one 2GB card. Just need to pack some more of those for a photo-safari.

Camera says out of memory after buying new compact flash card 4gb


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.
