Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera

This card cannot be used

My brother tried to read the memory card (a Lexar 1gb premium 60x) using a simm slot in his PC but was not able to. When I tried to use the card after replacing it in the camera I got the above message. Any ideas about what I can do to get the images back?

    I have the EXACT same problem. Did you figure out how to retrieve the pics? I know mine were there in Colorado. But at -25, my camera "froze." I figured when it thawed that the card might not have an error but I was wrong! HELP! It also contained my sister's wedding pictures and the first time my 7 & 8 yr. olds saw snow!

    Exactly the same problem here. Got my camera in Dec 2007, got the Lexar SD, 1GB card, worked beautifully until yesterday. I tried to view a few pictures and got error. When I pressed playback button to view pics the screen goes black and then I recevied the message "this card connot be used". I have used this card and camera for hundreds of pics, transferred and deleted them fine until now. Help!!!!!

Could be different voltages - some cards are 5V (older ones) and some are 3V or 3.3V. Wrong voltages can cause damage or corruption. The card may have become damaged or corrupted if supplied with 5V instead of the lower voltage. Not sure if you can recover it.

    Flash cards don't last forever. They have an expected maximum number of write cycles and start to fail once iy's exceeded.

You might have locked memory card. If not first try to connect memory card to PC with memory card reader and try to copy your stuff... then after you take all stuff try to format it.

Adding memory, new total not recognized: IBM Thinkpad R51e-1844


Ram should always be paired. Same type, speed and size in each slot. You may have 1 SIMM/DIMM/DDR that has 2 sides of chips and the other with 1 which will do exactly what you state. RAM reads across the chips simultaneously. So if you have a different one in each slot it can go bonkers and do goofy stuff on you.

Adding memory to tx pro mainboard


You do not say what memory you are trying to install.

The ASUS P4S800D motherboard has four memory slots that hold DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so the installed maximum is 4GB.

DDR memory is generally available in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB modules. If you already have memory installed, it must be at least 128MB so you cannot add modules to 'bring memory to 128'.

Either you have a different motherboard and posted in the wrong section, your memory calculations are wrong, or you have used older PC-133,PC-100 or PC-66 memory instead of DDR. The last is unlikely as older SDRAM has two notches and won't physically fit into a DDR slot that only has one notch.

Please re-post with the specific motherboard model just to confirm and a list of the memory modules you are trying to use.

The memory card is strictly for still photos. The tape is strictly for video. Transferring video tot he PC requires a firewire card on your PC (for direct cable connection).
