Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

Trouble with memory cards

At the newspaper I work at we have three Nikon D70s cameras. Two of those are having the same problem. We are having to change the memory cards frequently and sometimes reporters come back from assignments with no pictures because the card went bad while they were out. We tried getting better cards, but that didn't help. The last card I put in was a sandisk ultra II and it only lasted for a week. Is anyone else having this problem?

Yep, I solved mine by replacing the CF Pins at the bottom of the slot.

Plz have closer look at your memory card. It has a lock button. Just unlock it & start shooting like a Hollywood Hero.

For error d70s


Try formatting the cards in a PC before you put into the camera. Do the long format, not the quick. It will take some time, but give it a shot. If that doesn't work, buy new memory cards. Cards don't last forever, and it's not worth it to take pictures on a marginal card and then have them not work.

CHA?


I found this answer on the Nikon web site.

3) Camera displays “CHA” in top LCD. The camera has detected an invalid partition type or is not working properly. Reformatting the memory card may allow it to be used. If an approved memory card causes the camera to display the "CHA" indicator contact the memory cards manufacturer for assistance.

Please note that the default disk format used in Windows XP is FAT32 and if a card is formatted with this setting on an XP system, a D1 series camera will report "CHA". Reformat the card as "FAT" to use in the D1 series camera.

You would have to get an SDHC to CF adapter which could be pricey and they are hard to come by.
