Question about Nikon Coolpix 7900 Digital Camera
Something happened to my SD card with many photos on it. When I turn on the camera it says this card cannot be used. Do I have to reformat it? I can't find a step by step way to do it on my computer. The camera option doesnt allow me too.
Take your memory card out and look to see if you may have moved the sliding switch on the memory card, if you have move it back.

This question comes up several times a day here in the camera section at Fixya. But please note, it's very hard to troubleshoot individual software problems online, and it likely is a software issue.
Please don't take the following as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see this article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.

The 5900 uses SD cards. The 4GB card you have is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the 5900. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.
