Question about Nikon Cameras
Posted by Anonymous on
SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Any size SD card will work. The capacity limit is with the card, not the camera. All the camera does is serve as a recorder/reader for the card.

Write Protection: There is a tab on the memory card so you will you need to remove it from the camera and change the position of this tab to "unlock" it.

SOURCE: my camera is write protected
I am not quite sure of what is the make of your Memory card however most of the memory cards have a small switch on side that could be toggled to make it write protected. I am sending you a link with picture to make it more clear.
See the yellow slide lock on left edge of the above card...
Now if there is no lock on your card or if the above mentioned is not the problem then you might want to try formatting the card using your computer with "FAT" OR "FAT16" file system selected from the drop down (DO NOT SELECT FAT32).
If that too doesn't work then you might want to try with a different memory card.
This issue doesn't seem to be with camera.
In case any further assistance is required please write back and I would be glad to assist.

Is there a slide switch on the side of the card? Move it to "unlocked" position.

Testimonial: "Thanks. Boy do I feel simple!!"
SD 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. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
