I have a Nikon coolpix 800. I just bought a card for it: It reads--Lexar Platinum II 4GB CompactFlash 200x When I insert the card, it bring me to a message saying" that the card needs to be formatted; I follow the buttons and press format; it starts to format, but the process is aborted and the window fades and out comes the previous window with the message that it needs to be formatted. Now: the Office Depot assurd me that it is the right card, it is a new card, the batteries are new also What gives--do I have to take it to a camera shop--and will it be expensive to fix?

Hi,
Nikon coolpix 800 hardware does not support 4GB memory card as it is too big memory for this model and its hardware is capable to support maximum 2GB memory card.
Nothing is wrong with camera and memory card, they just don't match so buy less size memory card like 1GB or 2GB and it will be OK.
4GB memory card is for latest model cameras that are at least over 10 mega pixels. Nikon coolpix 800 is bit older model and its hardware can not handle 4GB high speed memory card.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

My sony cyber shot camera suddenly is saying that my Lexar 4GB CompactFlash Premium Series 80x needs to be formatted. What about my pictures?


You might have locked memory card. If not first try to connect memory card to PC with memory card reader and try to copy your stuff... then after you take all stuff try to format it.

I just inserted a new 8GB memory card but it tells me ''OUT OF MEMORY'' I tried to format it but still gives me the same message. Why is that and what can I do about it please?


The memory card you are trying to use in the camera is not supported. This camera is an older technology that can not recognize the large 8 GB memory capacity of the card. In fact, the largest approved card your camera will recognize is 1 GB.

The list of approved memory cards was obtained from the Nikon Site directly, and pasted below for your convenience.

Nikon has tested the following cards and approved their use in the Coolpix 5700:

CompactFlash memory cards:
SanDisk SDCFB series 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, 96 MB, and 128 MB
Lexar Media 4× USB series 8 MB, 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, and 80 MB
Lexar Media 8× USB series 8 MB, 16 MB, 32 MB, 48 MB, 64 MB, and 80 MB
Lexar Media 10× USB series 128 MB and 160 MB
Lexar Media 40x USB WA series 256 MB*
Microtech International Digital Flash Film 1GB*
Delkin eFilm 650MB Pro*
Ritz Big Print 8x 256MB* (Edge Code 0E1B)

Microdrive cards:
DSCM-10512 512 MB
DSCM-11000 1 GB

Nikon Coolpix 5900/4 GB Kingston SD Card


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.

Can I use a 4GB CompactFlash in my 5700 Nikon


According to Nikon it only supports up to 1GB CF cards, but as I suspected it had never been tested by them with larger CF cards (they weren't available above 500MB when the camera was released) I tried 2GB cards from various manufacturers and confirmed that they do not work.

I found that the best and most reliable performance with this particular Coolpix was with Sandisk Ultra cards. Ultra II (and above) offered no performance advantage with the camera itself, but if you use Ultra II then you will get speedier file transfers when using an external card reader. The camera will work with Ultra III but the camera writes noticeably slower to third generation Ultras than it does to the earlier versions.

The camera is no longer supported by Nikon and no firmware updates were ever released to extend CF capability.

Lexar Platinum II 4GB sd card won't work on my Polaroid PDC 3070


That card is not compatible with that camera. It's too large for an older model like that. Backup the card's contents and format it. It should work in newer models but probably not the PDC 3070.

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable


It sounds like your Dazzle is not compatible with the sandisk. Maybe the Sandisk CF UltraII card have a new update software in it.

Does not turn on


Get another battery - it is possible the replace is stale/old/dud. Check the cleanliness of the contacts on battery and the camera, a light polish with tissue- sometimes if the camera has not been used for a with a slight patina of dirt/corrosion will build up to prevent contact.
