Try re-formatting the card. It should be one of your camera menu options.

If that doesn't work, buy or borrow another card and try that. If a new card doesn't work you've a camera problem.

If its a camera problem, I'd try the Nikon web site, follow links to support and/or downloads to see if there's a firmware upgrade for the camera.

Why my 4GB SDcard can not work at my NIKON coolpix 5900


There are no 4GB SD cards. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

I Purchased a new SDHC card from Argos which was 4 GB as the one that came with my Nikon coolpix 3700 is a 16mb I put this new one into my camera and the camera showed that you couldn't use this card,...


Your camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 1GB. It simply isn't capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.

Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 1GB capacity.

Use a good antivirus software to scan the SD card. Your SD card could be infected.

The camera will not recognise any sd card from 16meg upwards. Formatting the card makes no difference.... always comes up with ... this card cannot be used! Please help!!


I'm assuming you're formatting the card in the camera and not in the computer. Try this...remove the card and battery...press all the buttons....leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

Sd card


To reformat the card so the Nikon Coolpix can use it you can use the DOS command 'format' e.g. format g: HOWEVER the default DOS format is FAT32 which the Coolpix will not read. The SD card needs to be formatted in FAT.

Open a DOS command window and type:

Format 'volume' /fs:FAT

Where 'Volume' is the drive letter to be formatted. On my PC this was 'G'. This may be different on your PC. Make sure it isn't an internal drive e.g. C or D!

e.g. format g: /fs:FAT

The card then works OK on the CoolPix
