    I am having the same problem with a 4 gig, getting the CHR message in the iso area, BUT I did use this card with my D50 on vacation recently--however it was a major pain to get the photos downloaded. I finally made it work, somehow. Any ideas?

My D50 Nikon camera reads CHR I bought a new SD Card it is 4G can that to big

The D50 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will only work with devices specifically designed to accept SDHC cards. The D50 wasn't. It only works with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Nikon D 70 issue

If you lost the manual for this camera can be downloaded from Nikon directly <a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">here</a>. The error message is discussed in detail on page 200. The CHR error you're seeing has to do with the memory card. It may be a simple as: it has no more free space to record more photos, or the card may not be formatted, or is damaged. Consult the manual for more tips and worst case, try replacing the card with a new one. Format it and try again. Good luck!

Flashes chr and won't fire

This can be caused by a badly connecting memory card, take it out and ensure its clean and connecting properly, also happens in cold climates, ensure the battery is fully charged. This is a comon problem with the D50

Memory not working in my D50.

The D50 will only accept up to a 2gb SD card. Cards of 4gb and larger are a newer type of SD card, known as SDHC (secure digital high capacity). At the time the D50 was made, SDHC cards weren't on the market. In short, if it is larger than 2gb it won't work. There's also no upgrade that I've found to handle SDHC cards in the D50, either. I love my D50, except for the card limitation.

unlock your card. you'll get that message when the SD card is locked.  Lock the card only to prevent deleting photos from it. good luck!

I have a Nikon D50 with an error message "CHA"

This error indicates the following:
This card cannot be used (CHR) blinks.
Error accessing memory card
Unable to create a new folder (on card)
Card has not been formatted for use on D70

Try another card
Format the card using your D70 (all images will be erased)
Check the card for visible damage or poor contacts.

You may have inserted a memory card that was been used in a different camera or the formatting process did not complete successfully.
I hope this helps.
