Question about Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Memory card error

My camera (Nikon Coolpix L3) turns on then shows me 'this card cannot be used'. I've been using this card for 2 years and I think the problem started when i was transferring pictures onto the computer. It transferred about two-thirds of the way then stopped and the message appeared. What should i do?

Try another card. The card can have a life limit, after all it is flash memory.
Also try to use the card in a card reader, not the camera. If that works, and you can save your pics... (remember never try to delete or change any of the pics. on the card from the computer, a lot better chance of corrupting the files...that may be due to the fact that the camera and the computer can be seeing different ways of making folders and reading them...just mention that because I had it happen... always format and delete all pics in only the camera you use that card in.)
If you are successful to transfer your pictures, then format the card in the camera, and see if it will work.
The final on this is that if the card will not format, and will not save pictures, then it is finished. You can try to use it in another kind of camera, sometimes that may work as well.

But have you considered 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 or FireWire). 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. Or you can use Nikon Transfer just as if the camera were connected.

First you need the Nikon software to detect the camera especially in older operating systems.

The newest operating systems, even Linux should detect the camera as a portable drive or mass storage.

Another way is to use a card reader and eliminate completely the camera to computer drivers and software.

I always use the card reader instead of camera in most cases simply because I am using so many different kinds of cameras, it would not make sense to install software and drivers for every kind.

NIK0N coolpix l3 movie transfer


The movie should be transferred automatically when you transfer the images from the sd card. There should be a folder where the pics are transferred, usually through a program called Picture Project. Look for an icon with the Quicktime logo on it or a movie logo. That should be it.

Nikon Coolpix L3 thinks batteries are dead


I think this was a firmware fault on some cameras. Check with Nikon to see if there is a new firmware for your particular camera. This can be downloaded free of charge and uploaded to the camera via USB.
