My Nikon coolpix 5200 will not let me re-set it. When I get the re-set on the screen it just skips past it. I just keep getting ( this card cannot be used ) on the screen & no memory card is inserted


If you can read the SD card with your computer, copy (backup) all images on the card to your computer. Make sure you saved ALL images. Then put the card back in the camera and FORMAT it. It is in the TOOL MENU that looks like a WRENCH.

My camera says my memory card is write protected. What does that mean and how do I turn it off?


Remove you SD card from its slot and look at the card. With the card's label facing you and the angled corner to the top right, look on the left edge of the card and you will see a very small slide switch and the label will probably have the word "lock" printed on it. Slide the switch upward toward the top edge of the card and the memory will work. This is called a write protect feature and it is designed to prevent you from accidentally erasing your important pictures.

I have a nikon coolpix. It is continuously showing 'MEMORY CARD IS WRITE PROTECTED'. I cannot take any photos. Please help.


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC 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.

You can download the current version of Nikon Transfer from http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

Out of memory on Nikon Coolpix L18 camera


I noticed that, after dumping the full SD card onto my computer, I didn't seat it perfectly back in the camera (my finger bottomed out on the batteries before the memory card 'clicked' into place. With the camera unable to see the SD card, it defaulted to the internal memory, which is very small.

I got the SD card seated fully and the "Out of Memory" message went away.

Memory card says it write protected


Make sure the SD card lock is 'off' and then use thin, opaque sticky tape (ie non see-through; eg insulation tape) to cover the whole gap but keep clear of the metal contacts at the back.
The mechanical lock switch accidentally moves to the "locked" position during insertion due to the poor quality of the switch.

Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"


Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.
