Is the card unlocked, take the card out and see if the little button on the side of the memory card is in the lock position, hopefully this fixes your problem, otherwise I would take the card back

Apparently, you have pics on the camera's internal memory. Your card won't work until those pics are gone. Here's how...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and it should work.

I verified that I cannot format my 4 GB cards in the Coolpix 5700. This camera simply cannot use large memory cards. You should get a 1 GB card for this camera (I verified that 1 GB cards do work).

I haven't heard of anyone having this problem, and they're all using 4gb Scandisk cards, so...I would suspect that the card is bad. Try to get it exchanged, but first try an older, card you used before, to make sure the camera is ok as far as detecting a card. Hope this helps.

A 2gb memory card says memory full tried it in


No, that camera works with the 2gb cards just fine. You will want to try to format the card in your computer first, then try it in your camera (format it in the camera before using). If it doesn't format in the computer, it is a bad card.

Put new memory card in and it shows "error"


couple possibilities. first I would try formatting the card from a pc. do you buy any chance have a card reader for your computer. in xp you just right click on the card and format it. if that dosn't work there is a chance that the card is defective. go to the store you bought it and see if they can help you there. Sorry if that dosn't help. Have fun in Australia btw. And good luck
