Make sure you format is from the camera since if you format it from the computer it might format it as a different file system which is not compatible with the camera.

Hello there, I have a Nikon Coolpix L4, and I'm trying to use a 4GB memory card in it that was most recently used in a Canon digital camera. I'm getting the error that "this card cannot be...


Sorry to tell you, but your older camera will not work with 4GB or higher SDHC cards. Your camera was designed before SDHC format came out. You'll need to use 2GB or less standard SD cards. These are relatively inexpensive these days, and are easily found on Amazon, just in case your local store no longer carries them. For others reading, there are several other possible causes for memory card problems, with troubleshooting steps that may be viewed here.

Memory card failure in camera


Your memory card needs a permanent home. Trading it between cameras is corrupting it. If there are pics on it, use a card reader to download them. Then choose a camera and format the card in that camera.

Deleting Mass Pictures


You can and should delete your images while the memory card is in your camera. In your manual or on the menu of the camera find the "Format" procedure and format the memory card.

Always do this with the camera. It does not work well formating the memory card with a computer.

Back up all the pictures on the card and then format the card.. Everything will be back to normal.

Memory card malfunction


Pictures can sometimes be recovered by sending the card to a service provider, or by downloading software designed to recover the pictures from the card. It is not clear weather the problem is the card or the camera, however to recover the pictures from the card would be the same process. If you do not have one you will need to buy a USB card reader to load the card on the computer. Consider buying another card to test in the camera, if you so wish. If the camera is new enough also consider contacting the manufacturer for warranty assistance. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
