NIkon 7900 SD card problems

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.
Thanks.

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.

Use a card reader to download your pics.

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.

My Nikon 7900 has a lense error. WHEN TURNED ON IT SOUNDS LIKE SOMETHING IS SLIPPING AT THE LENSE, THE LENSE DOES NOT COME OUT, THEN IT SAYES (LENSE ERROR)


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

Viewing photos without time and date


Unfortunately the Nikon Coolpix 7900 does not have a 'display' button to take care of this. So you need to go through Menu to access Setup menu. Here you will get option to customize the display.

SOFTWARE NOT WORKING


You may know this already, but you don't need the camera to upload photos. I have used Nikon Digital SLRs for several years and have never uploaded from the camera. You should be able to do so, but in the mean time, remove the SD card and use a SD card reader. If your PC doesnt have a built in SD reader, get a USB version like the SanDisk MicroMate or get SD with a built-in USB plug(see attached photos for both. When connected to your PC, either will show up as a removeable drive on your PC from which you can copy the files onto your PC's harddrive: save the photos, back them up, then use the camera to format the SD card--this is the best way to clear/erase the card. Then try opening the photos with the Nikon software or photoshop or if they are jpegs, windows will view them. Using the camera to upload photos, in my opinion, should only be done when you do not have a way to read the SD card. This can be the begining of a productive workflow and part of the process for organizing and backing up photographs. You should also watch the Nikon website for software updates to fix bugs: http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 You should also check for firmware updates for your camera(1.11 is the latest for the D40 and no updates yet on the D40x): http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783

My Nikon D50 camera says


It thinks that the SD card is full - try re-formatting if you have no photos there. The SD functions the same as a PC hard drive, and if the directory 'tracks' are corrupt, anything could happen. Else try a new SD card.

Nikon camera


hello

are you using a removable SD memory card?

check to see if your card is compatible with your camera.

the card maybe corrupt or may need formatting, try that after you back your pictures, movies up.

if the SD card was bought on auction site, may be a counterfeit. (the legit cards have serial numbers on them)
