Nikon coolpix s630 shows memory contains no images no sd card in it

That is what you get when the camera memory has no images. And the SD card is missing. This does not seem to be a problem. The tool menu will let you format a new SD card.

My nikon d300 will not format the SD card....

Hi, Dear
Nikon D300 does not use SD card! It use CF card.
But if you have format problem in camera then I recommend format from a computer using memory card reader. And then put the memory card into camera and try to format! Here it does not, then you should show to your local repair shop and it will cost between $120 to $265 usually. In minor problem case it will be replacement of memory card acceptance unit replacement. But the problem come from main pcb then the estimate will be totally different!

Why does my new Lexar 64 camera card say it cannot be used?

Your SD card exceeds the capacity that your camera will allow. The camera max SD card size is 4GB. Here is a link that lists all SD cards that meet the camera specifications:

Hi i can't used my yashica EZ digital 5032 everytime i put sd card tells it error or no card

Your SD card may have failed. Have you tried a different SD card in your camera? If you have and it still isn't working, it may be the camera.

When i start the camera one message appears "This card cannot be used" so what can i do?

Since you didn't provide any details about what memory card you were using, the simple answer to your question "what can I do?" is:

Don't use it.

Ok - I know, not exactly what you wanted hear - so I have included a page that lists the all the approved memory cards for use by the Nikon Cool Pix S200.

Additionally, I see this camera is rated to use SD cards only. The identical *looking* but larger capacity SDHC cards will not work reliably in this camera. I suspect that you have introduced an SDHC card to the camera and it is balking at it. You'll likely be able to use any "SD" logo (NOT SDHC) card without a problem - but to be 100% sure, use one of those on the list from the page above.

A comprehensive article on "SD", "SDHC" and the newest version "SDXC" cards can be found here. Please take a moment to rate this reply if it was helpful - good luck!

Memory card wont format. I bought a new 4G sandisk memory card but all it says after formatting is the card is full.

The S200 uses SD cards. Your new 4GB card is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the S200. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

New nikon coolpix s570. sd card is not uploading

Use a good antivirus software to scan the SD card. Your SD card could be infected.

Hope this helped.
