Since you didn't provide any details about what memory card you were using, the simple answer to your question "what can I do?" is:

Don't use it.

Ok - I know, not exactly what you wanted hear - so I have included a page that lists the all the approved memory cards for use by the Nikon Cool Pix S200.

Additionally, I see this camera is rated to use SD cards only. The identical *looking* but larger capacity SDHC cards will not work reliably in this camera. I suspect that you have introduced an SDHC card to the camera and it is balking at it. You'll likely be able to use any "SD" logo (NOT SDHC) card without a problem - but to be 100% sure, use one of those on the list from the page above.

A comprehensive article on "SD", "SDHC" and the newest version "SDXC" cards can be found here. Please take a moment to rate this reply if it was helpful - good luck!

Insert sd card again


At this time we recommend you use a different SD card and format it. SD cards can become corrupted and the camera may not recognize your card any longer.

Because the same message appears when you insert the card into other cameras the most likely problems are that the card is full or defective.
Have you tried another card in your camera? If not then you should do so. If it works then it confirms your other card is full or defective.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

Problem with the CF card


Do both of these CF cards still function when you connect them to the computer?
Inspect the CF connector on the camera using a flashlight (torch). It's possible that one or more pins on the connector may have been damaged, somehow. If this is the case, the camera will need to be repaired.
Can you still operate the menus after the error message appears? If so, use the menus to reformat the card (see the manual for instructions).

I have a canon EOS 400D and when i turn it on it works fine but when i start to use the flash it doesn't flash i get on the screen ERROR 99 ! what do i do ?


ERR99 means the camera is not communicating with the lens - probably just dirty contacts.

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

My Canon 20D suddenly started saying "Error 99" and it won't take any pictures. What should I do?

  3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.

Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Insert the CF card.
  3. Turn on the camera.
  4. Format the CF card in the camera.
  5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
  3. Reattach your lens.
  4. Turn on the camera.
  5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Card errro


Sometimes the card can get a little bit of dirt on it which has caused this error message to appear on my camera.  Just take the card out and carefully wipe the metal contacts at the bottom with mentholated sprits or another cleaner.  This did the trick for me.  
It could be a card problem in which case I would see if the same message comes up when a different card is placed in.  
hope this helps
