Nikon 4300 CF Card Erro

I just bought a type 1 compact flash card 4gb of space, and the camera always says "out of memory" . I've formatted it several different times and still cannot take pictures.
i've transferred pictures from computer to card, then read it on the camera fine, but when i switch back to try to take a picture, I still get that error.

    Yes, I've formatted it in the camera and still no go. I've also tried the computer format and still nothing. Always says out of memory.

The Nikon Coolpix 4300 only supports the FAT16 filesystem, so it can only support a 2GB partition. To support 4GB you need a FAT32 filesystem.
Put the card in a CF writer and attached to a PC or Mac. Partition 2x2GB partitions, then format them as FAT16. Now put it into the Coolpix 4300 and it should work.

Memory card size


i think those photos save in your camera built in memory. took the card out and turn on the camera . NOw press the play button and see the photos appeared in screen or not. If yes then you have to make the default storage location as your memory card.

Can i use 4GB Compact Flash in Nikon Cool pix 4300 Nikon Digital Camera?


A 4GB CompactFlash card should work in your Nikon Coolpix, but you may only be able to use 2GB of it's space once formatted correctly. This camera formats the cards in the FAT file system. That basically means that one can only use up to 2GB of memory (2048 MB).

New 4GB CF card for E5400, camera gives 'out of memory' message


So far as I am aware, the 5400 will support only up to 2GB cards. As to the firmware upgrade you mention, I don't recall that that has any bearing on the max. card capacity; but it's worth doing for the RAW format support (for me, at least). Cheers and good shooting. Davo, Tas.

Nikon coolpix 2100- out of memory- After installing 4gb CF card


4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.

Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.

CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.

Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.

Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.

Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.

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

Camera says out of memory after buying new compact flash card 4gb


Go to http://timescience.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/how-to-downsize-a-4gb-compact-flash-card-to-2gb/. That will make the card 2gb and it worked like a charm on my Nikon 4300 coolpix. It will hold 1059 pictures on the fine setting, 2083 on normal, and 4167 on basic. Hopefully this helps, I looked on the computer for hours until I found this.

Flash memory card


Perhaps it didn't complete formatting. This happened to my mom and I tried her card in my camera and it wouldn't work there either. We had to replace. You might take it back since you just bought it. That way, you will know if it's the card or the camera.
