    The format option can be accessed from the menu when the camera is in play mode. Press Menu, scroll down and select format and confirm it at the next screen to format. For additional info please refer to page 80 of the manual at the link below and post back if you have any further queries.

I reformat my sd card in the computer to remove all the photos the when im using it in my sony cybershot camera it appears "reinsert memory card" how can i fix the it to use it again in the camera


When you need to delete the photos from the SD memory card, do not use your computer to do it. Use your camera to format the SD memory card.
To fix this problem, insert the SD memory card in your camera then go to the camera's Menu and format the SD memory card.

What does CHA mean


Nikon says this about CHA:


When a Memory card is inserted into a D-SLR camera, the camera checks the card for compatibility and usability. There are three possible results of the test:

1) Camera detects valid Memory card, displays number of remaining images in top LCD

2) Camera displays "FOR" in top control panel LCD. The camera has detected a valid disk partition map, but was unable to read the first sector of the Memory Card. Formatting the memory Card using the cameras format option, should resolve this condition and allow the Memory card to be used.

3) Camera displays "CHA" in top LCD. The camera has detected an invalid partition type or is not working properly. Reformatting the memory card may allow it to be used. If an approved memory card causes the camera to display the "CHA" indicator contact the memory cards manufacturer for assistance.

(Nikon's list of "approved" memory cards can be found here.)

Please note that the default disk format used in Windows XP is FAT32 and if a card is formatted with this setting on an XP system, a D1 series camera will report "CHA". Reformat the card as "FAT" to use in the D1 series camera.


When the CHA error is shown, typically the camera will freeze and require that the battery be removed from the camera before it can take another picture. After that picture has been taken, the camera freezes up again for many owners.

Some owners have success removing and either re-seating or inserting a new memory card in the camera.

Some owners have success clearing the error by removing the lens and then reinstalling.

The key to these "fixes" is that they don't all work for everyone. You might need to return the camera to Nikon for repair. You can arrange for Nikon service here.

I hope this helps and good luck. Please rate this reply

My camera says "card locked"


Hi,

Remove the memory card and you will find a switch on the left side of the card. It must be locked, so slide or push the lock on other side to open it and then insert the card back to the Camera.

SDHC - Nikon D40, can't reformat the card!


I am not sure but I think those memory cards have a lifetime warranty and there is a phone number on their website.
Have you tried to reformat the card using your computer and the software that came with the camera?
When removing the memory card, you have to be careful not to touch the gold connectors on it, any static will ruin the card.
Hope I helped a little.

Camera says Card Locked and I can't Reformat the Memory Card


From the problem described by you, it seem your camera has gone into a internal memory error and hung. Try to take out the battery, the memory card etc , clean and then reinsert and then power on? Try this it might work.... Generally the camera should start working normally once you will take out the battery, since it will reset.
If it still does not work, then think you might need to take it to Canon. They are very helpful and could sort out if you have system software problem. But Before that, I suggest that you must take out its memory stick, the battery etc and keep the camera like that for about 15 minutes. Then only reinsert the battery (fully Charged) and then try to reformat the memory card. If you are lucky, you might not need to go to Canon. Best of Luck.

  • Switch the mode dial to 740playbackmode.jpgand press the Quick View button 740monitor.jpg if the LCD display is not on.
  • Press the menu button 740menu.jpg.
  • Press the right arrow button to select the "Mode Menu."
  • Use the up and down arrow buttons to select the CARD tab, then press the right arrow button.
  • Press the right button again to enter the CARD SETUP menu.
  • Use the up and down arrow buttons to select YES in the FORMAT option screen and press the OK button.
  • Press the up arrow button to select YES, then press the OK button.
    • This will permanently erase all your unlocked pictures, including your locked files. You will not be able to get them back later.
    • A bar appears showing the progress of the reformatting. Do not press any buttons on the camera during this time..

HOpe this helps you..!!!

Kind Regards!!...

Reformatting an SD memory cardf


You can format the card in your camera while not connected to your computer. In fact it's recommended to do so. Read your instruction book to find out how. It should be a selection available from your "menu" button when in image review mode. Select "low-level" or "full" format, not "quick" format (quick format is only good for erasing pictures).
