Problem with my camera recognizing my memory card

I have a Nikon coolpix 4600, I bought a kodak memory card while we were on vacation and it is taking pictures perfectly but when I go back to review them it only lets me view a few then a message comes up that says unable to read memory card. When I try to transfer my pics to the computer it will only transfer 60 of the 90 pictures that I took. I know the images are still on there, but how do I get to them???

Re: Problem with my camera recognizing my memory card

Try this download those you can Then delete them off the card. Do the remainder show up then? This may be a lack of computer memory thing.

I've inhereted a Nikon Coolpix 4600 Camera but not the software with it. I bought a 4G SD memory card but the camera says "this card cannot be used" any ideas?

The 4600 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. The camera is limited to SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I took the memory card out of my coolpix 4600 and put it into a vivitar camera when i inserted the memory card back into my coolpix cannot get the camera to work or turn off

Did you take pictures with the vivitar camera and saved it on the same memory card? If so, that might be the problem. Delete those files taken by vivitar (copy them to your computer if it is important before deleting) then try the memory card again on your coolpix.

Nikon coolpix 4600: How to transfer pictures from camera to card?

ok I figured out how to do it! put the memory card into the camera, then go to view the pictures. Then press the menu button and scroll until you see the copy button. Then you will see the option to copy from camera to card, or card to camera. Press the option to copy from camera to card and press select all....(or whichever pictures you want copied...I wanted all pictures copied). Then voila! it takes a few seconds to copy from the camera to the card, and there you have it! :)

I can't hear any sound off my camera videos


The Nikon Coolpix 4600 does not record any audio with the video.
This is surprising and not very useful.

The Coolpix 5600 does and the 4600 uses the same body, that is why it has microphone holes on the top.

Nikon Coolpix 4600 lens extended and won't turn on

Go to store and purchase a memor card reader/writer. It will allow you to put your memory card in it and download the pictures to the computer via the usb port. Make sure the reader/writer is made to accept your type of memory card.

Nikon Coolpix 4600: Problem: It won't take any photos, it reads: THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. The card is 128 MB. I purchased a new card: 2GB but it won't work also. My manual says to clean the contacts...

1) Have you formatted the cards?

2) Try the cards in the card reader in your computer to see if they can be read.

3) Try the "switch off camera - remove and replace battery - switch on camera" trick with the original 128 Mb card in place. This will reset the camera's memory.

4) Note the type of card is important - not all cards can be used in a camera (especially some of the latest bigger ones) - check the type of cards supported by your camera.

I found this at the Nikon USA site (note that the 2 GB card is not listed - as said "Cards are not all the same" and use different drivers to operate them):

Panasonic 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB*,1 GB

*High speed type of 10 MB/s or over

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-
party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.

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.
