There is a simpler solution. Just do this: 1. format the card in the camera 2. Connect it via card reader to your PC 3. Copy a little over 2Gb of data to the card - to a different folder 4. Put the card into the camera 5. It should work now... This way you can save some valuable data to the remaining 2 gigs of the card. Note: This has been tested on Nikon Coolpix 5400, but should work on 5700 as well

Not sure if this helps, but it worked for me on a Coolpix 5000.
I tried a 4Gb card, and the camera formatted it and reported out-of-memory. The problem seams to be that that max 2Gb is supported

What I did was partitioned the card into 2 sections with 2Gb on each. I then formated them to FA16.
This worked - but you can only use half of the card (i.e. 2Gb)

For the tools I used a Linux laptop with CF reader. The tools are build in here (fdisk and mkdosfat). I don't know how to do it on windows.

Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a memory card within the camera's specifications solved the problem.

How much compact flash memory can the 5700 support


The Nikon CoolPix 5700 can support up to 1 GB CF type memory cards, but only of a certain brand. Nikon maintains a list of approved cards - those brands and capacities that have been tested to work 100%. Other cards may work too - but no further testing of memory cards is being done with this model camera.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

New SanDisk 4GB CF Card - Coolpix displays out of memory


This is because the Coolpix 2100 and 31000 models cannot handle a card of that large a capacity. As it's only a 2MP camera anyway it doesn't need it.

The Coolpix 2100/3100 will usually accept up to a 512MB CF card, and 1GB Lexar CF cards up to and including the 24x WA write accelerated (although write acceleration itself offers no benefits on this camera). With Sandisk only a plain old and now obsolete SDFB allows a 1GB card to be used and the regular Sandisk Ultra (not Ultra II or later) will only work up to 512MB.

The camera was discontinued long before these much larger CF cards were released and Nikon no longer actively support the product so no firmware updates will be available. The hardware wouldn't support such cards anyway.

Compatibility chart for CF cards address below:-

Nikon coolpix 2100- out of memory- After installing 4gb CF card


4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.

Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.

CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.

Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.

Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.

Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.

How do i down load pic on computer


Almost any computer store (even drugstores these days!) sell inexpensive memory card readers that have a connector that you plug into a USB port on your computer. Most have slots to read several different types and sizes of cards. Just be sure that the reader you buy takes CompactFlash (CF) cards that the Nikon 5700 uses. Your computer treats the card and reader as one more disk drive.

Nikon coolpix 5700 shows no memory left after purchasing a new card & batteries


The largest CompactFlash card that Nikon approved for the 5700 is 256MB, which is what I'm using in my 5700. That's small by today's standards and you probably won't even find it in stores. I see some web sellers have 256MB cards for only $6 or so. Other commercial card sellers on the web claim that the 5700 will handle CF cards up to 1GB capacity. That's what I might try since online they're selling for as little as $8 plus shipping. Given that the 5700 was introduced in 2002, any cards bigger than 1GB probably won't work.

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable


It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.
