    I have a similar problem: I had a card error with a 1Gb Sandisk Sd card. I used the Card Recovery program 'cardrecovery.com' to get the images off the SD card using a PC SD card reader. I then formatted the SD card on my PC in fat32 format (Windows XP). Now my Nikon Coolpix 5200 says "This card can not be used". To make matters worse the Coolpix setup menu will not allow me to select 'Format Card'. Any suggestions gratefully received.

My suggestion for this problem is that you try to do a low level format of your SD card, some digital SLR cameras allow this via the menu, but you can also download specific software. I don't know if this is the best but you can try

If by any chance the reader is having problems with black pictures taken with his DSLR and have a relatively new one you can try format your SD Card with FAT32 if it is larger than 2GB. Old cams only support FAT16 but newer ones support FAT32 maybe it helps

I formated my sd card and i didn´t know something about difference between formated as FAT 32 or just FAT, and after that my camera wrote "This card can not be used" and as i read this comment by alexross a try it and you can´t to do formating by DOS - i work with Win XP and you can choose type of formating - default format is FAT 32 but you can click on it and there you have as well offer for FAT - try this, i did it and my sd card have no more problem!!! thax a lot to alexross!

To reformat the card so the Nikon Coolpix can use it you can use the DOS command 'format' e.g. format g: HOWEVER the default DOS format is FAT32 which the Coolpix will not read. The SD card needs to be formatted in FAT.

Open a DOS command window and type:

Format 'volume' /fs:FAT

Where 'Volume' is the drive letter to be formatted. On my PC this was 'G'. This may be different on your PC. Make sure it isn't an internal drive e.g. C or D!

e.g. format g: /fs:FAT

The card then works OK on the CoolPix

    update...SD card reading in the CoolPix and PC still not working properly. Please disregard above format g:/fs:FAT solution. If all else fails I might just go out and buy a new memory card!

My canon sd 800 is switches off while importing pictures on my pc


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My sd card wont read. it says that its not initialized. i flipped the thing in the sd card but nothing changed. how do i get my card to work. it worked fine until i put the sd card in the printer over...


Had you ever initialized (formatted) the card, especially when you first got it? If not, an unformatted card will work fine initially, but almost always corrupts with time after many pictures are added. To prevent this issue permanently, you should always format a new card. But note formatting will erase the card! If you haven't saved your pictures yet, and you're having trouble locating them on the card with your computer, see this article. After you've recovered and saved your photos, format the card IN THE CAMERA using the camera format feature (look for it in its menus). This will rejuvenate the card, and prevent this from happening again.

You load the pictures on to a computer that has a SD card slot and down load the pictures to the SD card and then put the SD card in your Frame where they can be displayed.

Scan card says not initialized


Take it out and try again. Buy a cheap USB card reader for the card and try that. Try putting the card back in the camera and hooking the camera to the computer.

Memory card sd


Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

It would seem that you would have to do it all over again, that is download the pictures again to the SD memory card. But before doing this, you would need to format the SD card using the digicam rather than the PC.

In some cases, it maybe that the picture files (downloaded from the computer) does not match the image property requirements of the digicam so that even if the image files are stored in the SD memory card, the camera is unable to list/view them

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Unable to transfer pictures to Computer.


I believe you can do that, it should not be a problem ( moving your sd card to another camera). Worst case scenario, you would have to go buy an sd card reader ( pretty cheap, probably won't have to spend more than $50 for it, not even that) and take the sd card out and put it in the reader and download from there. Good Luck!

Error 50


The "E50" error code indicates formatting a SD card has failed. Solution To clear the "E50" error, try performing the following procedure. 1. Try using another SD card. If you have another SD card, try loading it in the camera. If the error code is not displayed when the other SD card is loaded, there may be something wrong with the first one rather than with the camera. 2. Use your computer's ScanDisk utility to check the SD card for errors. Use ScanDisk to check the SD card for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your operating system or Windows Help for further instructions. (If you are using a Macintosh, use the "Disk First Aid" program to check for card error or card failure. Refer to the instruction manual for your Macintosh OS for further information.) Be sure to back up the data on the SD card on the computer before you check the SD card. If a card error or card failure occurs when you use your computer's ScanDisk, there is something wrong with the SD card. Follow ScanDisk's on-screen instructions to solve the problem.
