Question about Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera

1 Answer

D300 control panel

Just out of the box, battery charged and SanDisk Extreme III 4 gb card formatted. The control panel continues to display [1.0[k which I understand to be 1000 shots available when the ON/OFF switch is turned OFF. Is this a malfunction? What can I do? Or is it normal?

    What a relief! On page 46 (Camera Off Display) which I just found in the manual, it says that some cards allow for this info being off when camera is off; otherwise, like you said, it's normal for it to be displayed when off. Thanks for getting me over the expensive-new-equipment panic! Carolena

No, it is not a malfunction, and it is perfectly normal. It is just a heads-up-display of how many pictures you have left. THere might be a way to turn it off, so consult the user manual, or go to this link.

I have a Sandisk Extreme III 2.0 GB and when I plugged it into my mac and click on "Get info" I get.... Capacity: 1.89 GB Available: 1.2 MB (?) Format: MS-POS File System (FAT16) I erased...


The mac still sees the "deleted" files because they're still there. I would recommend you using Disk Utility and formatting the card as "MS-DOS".

That should do the trick ;)

Or you can try emptying the trash with the card connected, it may or may not see the files and trash them. Apple's Trash program is pretty trashy ;)

Get error message CHA where number of exposures should be. Have inserted (and formatted) two new Sandisk Extreme III memory cards with same result. Camera is brand new and I have yet to take a picture...


1. Check to see that none of the pins in the card compartment of the camera are bent. 2. Format the card in the computer. Choose FAT..not FAT32 3. Format the card in the camera. This has worked for many users.

How to delete images off a sandisk extreme 3 2.0gb compact flash%3F


Pop your memory card into your card reader, wait about 15 secs and it will appear on your computer as a drive. Double click on this drive and you will see either a lot of icons corresponding to the photos on the card or a lot of thumbnail pictures of the photos. Again right click on the drive and click on select all on the popup box. When all the icons or thumbnails are highlighted left click on them and the click on delete on the next popup box. Whatever you do DON'T try to format the card with your computer. If you want to format a memory card for a camera always use the camera's format function to do so.

By the way, the photos can also be removed by using the delete function in your camera's menu display.

Make sure the record inhibit tab on the memory crd isn't activated. If it is you won't be able to delete anything.

SanDisk Extreme III 4GB, unable to retrieve the 500 images on it.


SanDisk Extreme cards are supposed to ship with RecoveryPro software which should help you get the photos back. If the software is not on your card you may be able to get it from their website or another SanDisk card.

I have Sandisk Extreme III 4GB memory card why after i shooting photo the file is cannot read?


Make sure your camera is compatible with a 4GB flash card. Some only take 1 or 2 GB cards. If that isn't the issue, format your card inside the camera with the camera's format utility.

(WARNING: After running this low level format tool,
the whole USB flash disk surface will be fully erased.
Therefore, data restoration will be impossible after using this utility!)
