Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera
Okay...my camera has been working just fine for about...a year? I'm not sure how long, but all of a sudden my memory card (which is a SanDisk 512 MB) isnt working. I put it in and the message "This Card Cannot Be Used" pops up on the screen. It wont let me format the card on my setup either...it wont let me select that option. Does anyone know the cause of or solution to this? Thanks so much :)
Same problem, but the "Card Cannot Be Used" message didn't consistently appear. Often, turning the camera off and on again would do the trick. I recently reformatted the card in the past week to see if that would help, but now it is consistent showing that error message. I did start using a memory card reader on my PC at work, and I still use the camera dock on my Mac at home. Perhaps there is a problem there? Thanks!
Just so you know, I have this problem also. Anyway, the only thing that works for me is to turn the camera on WITHOUT the card inserted, then insert the card. After this, it will let me take ONE photo, video, or noise clip before it gives me the error again (strangely enough, I just figured out this solution a couple hours ago as I was browsing a listing for a similarly infected camera on eBay).
For a permanent fix, the "cheap camera repair man" can repair both the menus and the error for 55 bucks on his website (DynamicCamera.com).
