    My S1 takes pictures for about 10 shots, then all of a sudden a red writing appears on the screen: "Warning, this card cannot be read"?



    The funny thing is: I took at least 100 pictures with this card before and transferred them from the camera to my computer to save them, then I deleted everything on the card and popped it back into the camera.



    Now I replaced this card with a brand new one and the same warning appears after a few shots?

    When the camera is switched on it says 'warning: card cannot be read', whether there is in it or not, or whether it is a new card or not.

    Done that already before starting searching the Internet.
    It still gives me the same message:(

Get a card reader. Your card will be shown as a drive. Right-click and format. Then put it back into the camera and see if it works. You should get a card reader for about 8$

Hi due to so many questions asked about this here it is. How to deal with memory card locked/write protected error.


kilgourt.gif



SOLUTION 1 - Unlock the memory card.

There is a Lock switch on the left side of the SD card. Make sure the Lock switch is slid up (unlock position). You will not be able to modify or delete the contents on the memory card if it is locked.



SOLUTION 2 - Toggle the lock switch.

If the lock switch is not on lock:
1. Slide the switch up and down. Repeat this 3 times.
2. Let it stay on the Lock position for 30 seconds.
3. Slide the switch up to unlock the card.
4. Try to transfer files into the device.


For non-SD cards: Format the card

The data on the memory card may be corrupted.

WARNING: Formatting will delete all the files in the device. Backup all your data before formatting.





Memory card write protected, memory card locked, memory card will not read, can't use memory card.

Tip

If your camera will not read or transfer internal images on to memory card


When your camera will not transfer images onto memory card this is often because the image storage has been set to 'Auto'. You need to set it back to internal memory temporarily to allow you to copy the images over to the card. Once you have done this you can set the camera back to 'Auto' and this will reset the system and you will now have access to all of the images on the card.

This particular procedure works with all cameras but the steps outlined here are for Kodak in particular.

Please follow these steps;
1) Insert the card

2) Turn the camera to Auto

3) Press review - "reading memory card"

4) Press menu and scroll down to image storage and press ok

5) Select Internal Memory and press OK

6) Scroll down to Copy - Copy Pictures to memory card

7) Scroll down to ALL and press OK - you should see "Copying" displayed

8) When the screen goes back to the main menu - Scroll to Image storage again and select Auto - OK - "Reading memory card"

You should now be able to see the pictures from your internal memory saved onto your memory card and your camera is once again ready to use.

It reads internal memory but not a memory card


Download the pics from the internal memory if you want to save them. Then: 1. With the memory card out of the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. 2. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Making sure the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position, insert the card. Everything should work now.

No power, not reading memory card


1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 4: Please also try to upload new firmware: I doubt that it will solve the issue, but the alternative is a repair. Connect the camera with the computer. Turn the camera on. Click onto the link and follow the instructions. http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/service/downloads/DownloadLookup.jhtml?pq-path=10732/10810&product=EKN032918

Memory card cannot be read


Well this could come from one of 2 problems that spring to mind...

1. You do not have the correct software installed on your PC, as thus presents a problem in reading said memory card, especially if you are using non-specific or generic software.
Ensure the software you are using is for the Nikon Coolpix S200.

2. The memory card may also be faulty, if you feel this may be the case, i suggest having a dealer or repairer take a look at the card.
Tip: Some photo labs have self service units for most types of digital cameras. Drop in and try establishing if the memory card can be read.

Memory card format.


The Polaroid PDC 700 digital camera accommodates an optional, Type 1 ATA compatible CompactFlash memory card up to 48MB. When an unformatted memory card is installed in the camera, it is automatically formatted when the camera is powered on. WARNING: Once you format the flash memory or format a memory card, all images are erased and cannot be retrieved - they are gone forever! Before you format (erase) the flash memory or format a memory card, transfer the images to your computer.
