Oops....
You know you should not pull out a memory card?
The SD cards that go in your Nikon, can removers, by just pressing the card in a little. Then the lock will release and a spring will move out the card.
If you just pulled, the lock can be broken, or at least misplaced. If you really pulled it, I think the only way is to send it back to Nikon, or to go to a Nikon Certified service centre for repairs.

The sd memory card : i can't push it when i did it didn't work but suddenly it pop up


Did you try to put in another card already?
Just to establish if the defect is in the camera or in your card. When you push in the card a little pal will lock the card in the camera. If the card lost a little of its outside, it could be the lock is not ok. I'm afraid something is wrong with the pal in the camera. But you need a good set of eyes, some knowledge how the card locks in and a peek into the card holder, to see if it works correct.

Memory card locked slide lock


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Hello, I'm getting the message "Memory Card Error


Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards

Can i transfer songs from my pc to my cell? and what is the hole for on the top left?


It is possible another way...Best buy cells micro sd memory cards costing about $12 for a 2 MB. It comes with an apapter to put into your memory card slot into your computer. So you put little memory card into the apapter into the computer card slot. Drap and drop songs on the card and woolah. Put the little card in to the Micro SD slot in your phone....
Go to www.bestbuy.com and search micro sd cards.

I do this for music.(:

Card error


Just triple-check that you haven't accidentally locked any of the cards.

On an SD card, for example, there is a TINY little white switch on the side that write-protects the card.

Back in the day of audio cassettes, the tab was "felt" by a mechanical arm.. if the tab was present, it could record. If the tab was missing, it would not allow recording. I'm not sure if digital cameras still work like that or not? If so, it could be something like that in your memory slot. =-]

Unprotect memory card


Hi,

To set the memory card in unprotected mode, you have to do the following.

On the side of the SD chip, there is a little switch. Shift the switch away from "lock", then insert the card back into the camera.
This unprotects the card. You should now be able to take pictures and videos.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If this does not solve the problem, then it is very likely that the SD card is faulty. I would recommend using Panasonic, Lexar or Sandisk memory cards.

~Lexar SD card


~1 Panasonic SD card

~2 Panasonic SD card


~Sandisk SD card

Memory card is write protected


thought the cards have a little tab on them so they can be "write protected" it is a little plastic tab on the side of the memory1.gif card you slide up and down. I know most SD cards1.gif have it, CF cards dont so if its anything besides SD memory its probobly the memory card or some little switch or somthing in the camera that tells the camera when the card is in the "Locked" or "Write protected" mode.

Looking at my SD memory cards1.gif they have a little arrow on the edge and they say "Lock" pointing down, the slider is up. Move yours both ways, maybe it has a bad connection in the card (im not sure what it actualy does) or its in a position the camera thinks its locked?
