Press the menu button and go into the image mode setting. Use the right arrow to go into the table of quality options. Use the up/down on the dial to select the file size (quality) you want. You will then see the quantity of images the card has room for, at the selected resolution.

Message says memory card is write protected and does not allow me to take any more pictures

What kind of card is it? An SD card? If so, there should be a little tab/switch on the side of it that you can flick to resolve the issue. If not, have a look at this: How do you remove write protection from mini SD card

Out of memory message after 3 photos on new memory card

Hi Bob,
Your camera has two memories. It has a 23 Mb internal memory in addition to the SD add-on memory. If you look on page 30 of the Reference Section of your camera's manual Number of Exposures Remaining table (link below), you will see that when set at the highest resolution, your camera will only allow three exposures in the 23 Mb memory. I would go into your camera's menu and make sure that you have set it to use the SD card instead of the internal memory. You may also want to take lower resolution pictures to increase the number of pictures you can fit in memory. Also, make sure that once you do that, you reformat your SD card in the camera, not on the computer.

Sd card is 32m it is only giving 12 images

A 32mb SD card doesn't have a large capacity - depending on the resolution (megapixels) of the camera, a different amount of pictures can be stored. Below is a link to a page that can help you determine what size is right for you.

How much memmory support does it provide nikon coolpix p4 vr

The P4 has about 23MB of internal memory, which might hold five pictures at the camera's best resolution. The camera also accepts SD cards up to 2GB in size, which should hold several hundred pictures. And, of course, you can use multiple cards.

Just received a mint condition Nikon Coolpix S4 swivel-head digital camera off eBay. Installed new AA alkaline (Duracell) batteries and a new 1GB SD card. From the firt time I fired it up this morning, all...

Without some detailed information on how the unit processes video vs. still images, it won't be possible to say for sure, BUT....

The video resolution is processed at a much lower megapixel setting than still pictures. It may be that the defect in the sensor that is causing the lines is on a section of the sensor that is either not used in video mode, or that the software is processing out the defect when it doesn't need all the pixels to give you an image. I think the first is more likely. In video mode, the camera has to run at a lower resolution so that the electronics can store information fast enough to give you video, so it uses a lower resolution. Since it's using the same sensor, it has to either ignore some of the pixels or just not sample them.

If it is the sensor (this is most likely but can't be sure without testing it), then the only way to correct would be a new sensor. It could also be a bad wiring connection, but either way you'd need to get inside to fix. That would be expensive.

I think you should try to use a lower resolution setting and see if maybe that will eliminate the pixels that aren't working. You won't be able to get the highest resolution from the camera, but megapixels are overrated. If you can run it at 3 megapixels or more, you'll be able to do just about anything with it.

How do I import pictures from my Nikon Coolpix s550 digital camera to a PC laptop?

You can either connect the camera to the computer using the supplied USB cable, or remove the SD card from the camera and insert it into a card reader attached to the computer. The card reader is the preferred scheme, as it does not drain the camera's battery.

Adjusting Pictures Resolution

you use the function button while in camera mode and scroll to the image size then turn the function dial to change it. you should consider taking your photos on the higest resolution, however, because SD cards are very cheap and you can get 8GB cards for under $40. Your camera came with a 32MB card which is tiny--you should throw it away. 8GB will store hundreds of 9 megapixel photos--i recommend having at least two SD cards. i hope this helps.
