Hello

OK, if the memory card itself is locked, you might sometimes get this error code. All you need to do is to take out the memory card and switch the lever on the left side to the unlock.

I have a canon pc - 6c99e31.jpg

If the error is still displayed after you did the above, you might want to try the card in another camera.

If the card works in another camera . the problem is with your card reader in your camera.

If you open you sd slot and look inside with a sharp light , you should be able to see on the left side of the slot there is a little copper or spring steel lever switch. This switch work as follows:

1. When no card is inserted / no write protection , the switch is open and thus the protection is off.
2. When locked card is inserted , the tab is depressed and tells the camera that the card is lock.

Contrary to popular belief ,the little tab on the sd card is not an electronic switch and does not physically influence the card operation itself. If you put a locked card into a camera without a sd lock switch , you would still be able to use the card normally.

It is incredible difficult to fix this switch because of space limitations in the sd card. Look into the sd slot and if you can see the switch , use a needle to pull the little tab down toward the base of the camera by about 2mm or until it works being careful not to bend it.

If this does not resolve your problem , there might be a short in the switch circuit and the camera will need to be disassembled to resolve this error. This should cost no more than $50.

Please feel free to contact me if you need further information

Kind regards
Andrea

Most cheaper laptops do not include a full-blown graphics board with expensive dedicated graphics memory. Instead, system memory is shared between the CPU and the graphics subsystem.
How much memory actually is reserved for graphics purposes depends on the software you are running. The frame buffer (the memory used to store the pixels on your desktop) is only part of it - games, for example use a lot of memory to store textures and geometry data.
  • Minimum Graphics Memory: 128 MB
    The smallest memory size your system must reserve for CPU/Graphics sharing.
  • Maximum Graphics Memory: 1341 MB
    The largest chunk your system can configure for sharing.
From the DirectX report you can see, it currently uses 27 MB only.
Your laptop lacks the CPU and graphics power to run high demand games anyway, so 128 MB of shared memory should be sufficient. You can configure this to 256 or 512 MB in the BIOS configuration menu, but I doubt it will make any noticeable difference for you.

The 256MB SDRAM is showing as 128 MB SD RAM


if you have onboard graphics card that shares the ram memory with your graphics card then the configuration in the bios will determine how much memory is shared with your graphics card so you will lose memory there. Also windows xp does not always report the correct amount of memory so check with cpu z or wcpuid or another utility to check.
Also when you restart your computer when it detects the memory how much does it show that is installed there or if you go into the bios does it show the correct amount.
If it does not then it is not compatable and I would suggest going to www.crucial.com and selecting / getting the correct memory by selecting the correct computer / motherboard that you have.

Nikon Coolpix 4600: Problem: It won't take any photos, it reads: THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. The card is 128 MB. I purchased a new card: 2GB but it won't work also. My manual says to clean the contacts...


1) Have you formatted the cards?

2) Try the cards in the card reader in your computer to see if they can be read.

3) Try the "switch off camera - remove and replace battery - switch on camera" trick with the original 128 Mb card in place. This will reset the camera's memory.

4) Note the type of card is important - not all cards can be used in a camera (especially some of the latest bigger ones) - check the type of cards supported by your camera.

I found this at the Nikon USA site (note that the 2 GB card is not listed - as said "Cards are not all the same" and use different drivers to operate them):

Question Which Secure Digital Cards are approved for use in the Coolpix 4600/5600? trnsp.gif Answer The Nikon Quality Department has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 4600/5600:

SD memory cards:
SanDisk 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB, 512MB*, 1 GB
Panasonic 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB*,1 GB
Toshiba 16 MB, 32 MB, 64 MB, 128 MB, 128 MB*, 256 MB, 256 MB*, 512 MB

*High speed type of 10 MB/s or over

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-
party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.
