SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

If that doesn't work, try another card.

I have a Polaroid a330 and just bought a 2GB sd card. The manual says to format a card before using and gives instructions. However, when I insert the card and turn on the camera, the screen shows "card...


first try to see if the card is not locked from the side ..It has a little button that locks it ...after that insert the card into a computer with a card reader ..and format it in Fat mode...by opening my computer folder...right click on the removable storage device ...and choose format ...when it opens choose Fat ..and quick format ..than OK ..this will format it for the first time ..and after that isert it in the camera and see if it is seen ..

if the format card is not available now..(to format it in the camera again and be sure it is the right way and make the folders fro storage ) ..
goto storage feature in the main menu ..and choose to store in teh card ..in tis moment will prompt you to format ...or ..just choose a picture from the camera memory in the view mode..and options ..and try to move it in the card ..if it is not proper formatted will ask you to format it ..and give you the possibility to make it right the way by asking you if you want to format it now...choose ok..and that's all..But I suspect that if you unlock it ..and format it in a computer will work like a charm ...

CARD LOCKED


There should be a small toggle along the end side (it is tiny and easily missed, but it is there, I just checked my memory card / mine is 4GB SD card from Sony) that you can swtich to unlock and your images may come back that way.

Look for it this way, hold the card face down it should be on the back edge where you use your thumb or finger to push it into the slot on your camera.

Turned camera on but it won't respond in anyway...


I've seen a couple of these now that describe similar problems with the D90. I haven't seen anything from Nikon, though. Common issues like that are normally fixed through firmware updates, but there are none out for the D90. Given that it's still under warrenty, you should take it to a local Nikon dealer and let them help you.

Manual and online (you probably know) are not too helpful on problems like this. They just tell you to put in a new or fresh charged battery.

You might try formatting the card in a PC and seeing if that clears up problems.

I've had a D70 for years and I had no problems like that at all, but I always format cards when I put them in camera, and I format on the PC every so often.
