If you haven't done anything to the card since you formatted it, then you have a chance. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

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

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

SOURCE: Nikon 4300 CF Card Erro

The Nikon Coolpix 4300 only supports the FAT16 filesystem, so it can only support a 2GB partition. To support 4GB you need a FAT32 filesystem.
Put the card in a CF writer and attached to a PC or Mac. Partition 2x2GB partitions, then format them as FAT16. Now put it into the Coolpix 4300 and it should work.

This may be due to the aperture ring in your lens. Try the following:

1. Turn off your camera
2. Move the aperture ring clockwise then lock
3. Turn on your camera and try again.

If this does not work, do the same thing again but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise.

There doesn't seem to be a problem. The 3.7k means 3700, the k meaning thousand. If you were to take about 2700 pictures, you'll then see 999, then 998, and so on.

I have had this camera for two years and never had a problem. Now when I switch it on the screen shows the message, " Memory card is write protected" and the camera will not function.


On the memory card is a slide lock that locks the card from being accidentally written to or erased. embossed with a lock that is unlocked/locked.
Somehow this slide lock has been moved to the write protection mode/locked. Could have happened if you removed the memory card lately.
Remove the memory card and slide the lock to unlock reinstall the card and that should cure your problem.

I Was on the menu item and selected format under tools, lost all my pictures any way to retrieve them?


You pressed format on your camera.That meant that you formatted the memory card of your camera.All your pictures are saved on the memory card of your Canon digital camera automatically.So you can recover pictures from memory card with data recovery software.I have a professional program on my computer that can recover data after deeply scanning your memory card to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. But you had better have stopped using the memory card of your camera. Because, once the pictures were overwritten by new ones,they are gone for good.By the way,you can download it and scan your memory card for free to preview whether your erased photos can be recovered.Get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverystandard.htm

I have the Nikon D5000. I have one picture on my memory card that has somehow become locked. Therefore, I have to manually delete ALL my pictures. How do I delete this one picture that is locked/write...


Take the memory card out insert it into a card reader and connect to a system. After you have backed up all the data without opening the files on the mem. card right click on the card icon and select format . Choose full format option. This would erase all the files.

My Nikon D80 shows an ERR, what should I do? FYI...I tried turning the camra on, removing the battery and pressing the shutter button for 30 seconds. That didn't work.


It's possible that you need to format the memory card. Formatting is found in the camera set up menu scroll down to "Format Memory Card" and follow on screen instructions.
Formatting should be done after each time you download pictures to your computer. Not delete, as delete does leave some data behind and eventually clogs the memory card so new data can not be placed on it. Another possibility is that the card somehow has become locked I'll include a diagram. Also a new card needs to be formatted to the cameratri3mast_228.jpg it is going to be used in.

I accidently formated my Nikon D50, is there a way of retrieving my photos?


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in Nikon camera erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the camera memory card, it's just invisible or inaccessible.So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try this camera recovery program called asoftech photo recovery, which can recover data after deeply scanning your camera memory card to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted.

I have just inserted a new memory card and it says out of memory


New memory cards must be formatted in the camera first to work properly. Also, you must erase (format) the internal memory.

Have you formatted the card? When you buy a new card for a camera it may have to be formatted by the camera so it can be used. Note: Any data on the card will be lost during the formatting, so make sure you have a backup of any content there.
