Nikon D80 Memory Card Not Not Reading.

I insert my memory card that I have been using fine for the past 6 months. But today, I try to insert the card into the camera slot and display says "No Card Present" when there is indeed a card in there. I think the problem is that the card is not actually being pressed all the way into the memory card holder, because when I manually press the card down, the display tells me I have so many photos left available. Any ideas as to what is the problem?

    does the card eject fine? first lets try a easy possible fix take a pencil eraser and scrub the memory card contacts they might be dirty if that does not work then the problems are the memory card pins. A bit of work but it is a pretty easy fix. once the camera back is taken off you then have access to the memory card pins they need to be lifted back up so that they can press agenst the memory card. hope this helps

I would try another card first, before doing anything else.  If you have been using just one card for 6 months and using it a lot, it could be corrupted.   It's best to always have a back up of at least one card anyway, and they have come down in price considerably.
If my suggestion and McComijohns's don't work, I would consider taking the camera in for repair.   It is NOT a good idea to mess around too much with the inner workings of the camera.  You could cause a lot of damage and it won't be covered under your warranty.  Good luck.

My Nikon D80 shows an ERR, what should I do? FYI...I tried turning the camra on, removing the battery and pressing the shutter button for 30 seconds. That didn't work.


It's possible that you need to format the memory card. Formatting is found in the camera set up menu scroll down to "Format Memory Card" and follow on screen instructions.
Formatting should be done after each time you download pictures to your computer. Not delete, as delete does leave some data behind and eventually clogs the memory card so new data can not be placed on it. Another possibility is that the card somehow has become locked I'll include a diagram. Also a new card needs to be formatted to the cameratri3mast_228.jpg it is going to be used in.

Nikon d80 problem (err flashing with r09 in the lcd display)


I belive this isn't a fault but more to do with how you are using the camera. The r09 message is to do with the camera buffer and how many more pictures it can hold. You do have a memory card installed, right? The r09 is normally not an error, but simply an indicator of how many more pictures you can take in the current burst before the buffer fills. The number will vary according to the image quality and size settings.

My computer is not reading the memory card. Nikon D80


If you are using a 4GB or higher SD card, some computers cannot read it directly from their in-built SD reader. Buy an external card reader and plug it in. Your computer should now be able to read cards 4GB and larger

Please make sure your memory card does not have the "Lock" setting clicked on. It is a small slider at the side of the card. Check this out and try to save again to your card.

CAN'T RETRIEVE PICTURES FROM MEMORY CARD


Hii

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.


  • Thanks

    I have a Nikon D50 with an error message "CHA"


    This error indicates the following:
    This card cannot be used (CHR) blinks.
    Problem(s)
    Error accessing memory card
    Unable to create a new folder (on card)
    Card has not been formatted for use on D70

    Try another card
    Format the card using your D70 (all images will be erased)
    Check the card for visible damage or poor contacts.

    You may have inserted a memory card that was been used in a different camera or the formatting process did not complete successfully.
    I hope this helps.
