SOURCE: CF Error - Card cannot be used

Your problem sounds as if there's a bent pin in the CF card holder inside the camera. To fix it you will have to be very careful with a long blade fine screwdriver. Remember you'll have to straighten it in one go. If you bend them twice you can bet they'll break. A powerfull light to see the bottom where the pins are is needed too. If you're not willing to do the job yourself there's a guy on Ebay USA who straightens them. BMW

I think it should take more that 4G's. Maybe it was the way you inserted the SD card. These Nikons can be a bit funny about such things. So if you haven't already sorted the problem I'd suiggest you turn off the camera. Remove the batteries then remove the 'other' SD card. Then reinsert you bigger capacity SD card then the batteries. Then turn on the camera. It's just like re-booting a windows computer. Hopefully it will come up 'roses'. Cheers

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Trying out new 4G SanDisk cf memory drives in Nikon Coolpix 5700

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

SOURCE: I have a Nikon E5400, ver 1.3. I bought a 4GB

I'm assuming you tried to format the card in the camera. If there's a firmware update for your camera, by all means, get it.

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!

Will by Nikon Coolpix 5700 support a 4 GB compact flash card ??? thanks


Your camera uses CF type I or II cards. Since it was first introduced in 2002 I believe it has no support for 4GB cards. But since it's a 5MB camera, you can get some 500 frames on one 2GB card. Just need to pack some more of those for a photo-safari.

Don't buy a CF card bigger than 2mb - the camera will not write to it.

Trying out new 4G SanDisk cf memory drives in Nikon Coolpix 5700


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.

Can't change nikon 5700 to Hi resolution


Is the compact flash card full, or close to it? If you don't have another CF card, see if there is a bad pic you can delete. Or maybe 2. Hint: anything out of focus. ;)

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.
