Formatting PC Cards for use in Nikon digital cameras Formatting PC Cards for use in Nikon digital cameras -->
Nikon strongly recommends using the digital camera to format PC cards before use in the camera. Formatting in the camera ensures the proper settings and will give the most reliable operation. Cards can also be formatted using a computer, but the "File System" setting must be changed to "FAT" before formatting (see screen shot to the right. If left at any other setting the card will not work in the camera.
Cards can not be formatted using a Macintosh computer.

    The highest capacity cards available at reasonable prices are probably the Seagate 8GB Microdrive CF card (type II) which currently sells for around $148, and the Transcend 120x 8GB CF card which sells for around $91, which seems like quite a bargain. There's a compatibility matrix for the 8GB Seagate microdrive on the Seagate Website which lists the cameras with which the 8GB drive has been tested. Personally, I'd be inclined to go with the solid state flash memory rather than the microdrive.
    IMPORTANT NOTE:In order to use drives with a capacity greater than 2GB (either solid state or microdrive), the camera must support the use of the FAT32 file system. Most current higher end digital cameras (including the EOS 10D, EOS 20D and Digital Rebel XT as well as the Powershot G6, S50, S60 and S70) do support FAT32. Older cameras (including the EOS D30 and D60) may be limited to the use of 2GB microdrives and memory cards. If you are in any doubt about whether your camera supports FAT32 and can use 4GB and 6BG microdrives, Hitachi have a compatibility matrix chart on their website where you can check. The current 4GB drive is designated "3K6-4". "3K4-4" is an earlier vesion of the 4GB drive. The 6GB drive is the "3K6-6". Drives with the "-2" suffix are 2GB.

I have taken 8 pictures with my camera and we had put in an 8gb memory card, but my camera says internal memory is full. this is a brand new camera, and I am learning about it, but why is the memory...


Apparently, you used the internal memory before putting in the memory card. Now the camera only wants to use the internal memory. Here's the fix...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the memory card. If this is a new card, you will need to format it in the camera, too. If there are any pics on it, download them first using a card reader if necessary, because the card will be completely erased.

I have a Toshiba 8 GIG memory card. I used it


When you removed the card from the computer, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" procedure? Also, you should never wait until your card is full before downloading...you run the risk of the card becoming corrupted. Your options now...1. Get a separate card reader and see if you can download your pics with it.2. If not, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak Picture kiosk machine. Insert your card and you should be able to see all your pics. From there, you can make a cd of them. Then, format your card in your camera to return it to factory specs.

It could be caused by your SD card needing to be formatted.

Format your SD card. NOTE this will delete all existing data on your SD card.
Do the following:
  1. Insert the memory card into the camera. Make sure the card is firmly seated (push in the card until it clicks into place).
  2. Turn on the camera.
  3. Press the Menu button, then go to the Setup Menu.
Scroll up or down to the Format option, then press the OK button

I put a new memory card in our Kodak EasyShare


Your camera is only supporting SD/MMC Cards (up to 1 GB)
The card that you currently have might be faulty. Please try another card.

You might also need to switch the camera over to saving pictures directly onto the SD card.
1: Menu 2: Cam settings 3: Chose AUTO or SD card option Press OK
Note: If the SD card isn't in the camera or is unreadable the camera will automatically go back to saving you taken pictures on the internal memory.

Got new olympus memory card, keeps saying card error


Is the memory card the correct capacity? Is it too "big"? ie is it say a 8 gig and maybe your camera only supports 4 gig? I had that problem with my camera-I had bought a memory card which was too high in capacity for it. Check your user manual for the cards and capacity you can use.
