Question about Nikon COOLPIX Cameras
Using a Nikon coolpix 3100, the CF cards (new and old) seem to not be able to be used on the cam. a error message comes up on the cam screen "this card cannot be used". when i try to go to the option to format, it skips it.
How can i fix this?
Are all the cards giving same error message or few?
Test the CF cards not readable by your Nikon using external card readers connected to computer/laptop and see if it works.
If it doesn't then it can be formatted from computer and tested on Nikon again.
If neither of cards are working on Nikon then it can also be a small issue of contacts inside attracted dust. You can try using blower to clean dust if any in the place you insert the CF card and try again.
If it doesn't work then it it needs visit to some experienced person/technician/mechanic.

One of the pins in your slot is bent. I used a small screwdrive to straitened the pin and the camera works fine. It took me 4 minutes to resolve.

Check to be sure the card didn't get locked. Also that the little 'card inserted' icon comes up in the upper right-hand corner. If it doesn't, the card is locked or not completely pushed in and locked in place (not the same as having the slider locked on the card itself). If the icon isn't in the upper right-hand corner, then there is a problem with the card or its insertion.
