Bought a new memory card for my nikon coolpix 3100 card wont work

It formatted the card okay, its a Compact Flash 4gb. But then it just says out of memory on my screen. Im wondering if the 4gb is too big for the camera and is there anything I can do about this?

I got a similar probelm, did an upgrade from 1.2 to 1.3, didn't sort the problem. I also search for a hack - no such luck :(

The only answer is to go and buy a smaller card.

Check your owner's manual for the maximum size your camera will accept. Also, go to the support section of the manufacturer's website to check for any firmware updates for your model.

SOURCE: 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.

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).

I received a new Compact Flash card (4GB) for my Nikon and when I put it in the camera it says out of memory?


If there are any pics in the internal memory, you need to get rid of them. With no card in the camera, download any you want to save and then go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the new card and do the "format" thing again.

Nikon 4300 CF Card Erro


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.

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.

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.

Compact flash card 4 GB


I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that you have never tried a 4GB card in this camera before.

After looking at the manual, this camera, a 2001 product, would seem to be from a time when 1GB cards were still off in the future, and 4GB cards were not even conceivable.

So that you know, the manual refers to a 160MB card as the highest option available at the time, but I have to think that 64MB was considered a large card back then.

The link for the manual is: http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/CP775man.pdf

The page I'm referring to is page 154 (which is actually page 168 of the pdf document).

I suggest you contact Nikon and ask for an update to the compatible flash cards for this camera and find a 256MB or 512MB that someone has lying around.
