Formatting a sandisk 4g to work with coolpix 7900 camera

When in insert the new sandisk 4g sdhc card to coolpix 7900 it says the card can not be used. I have never used larger than 1g in camera. went to nikon site, looked up 7900 - it does list sandisk 4g as an usuable card. when i go to menu/set up on camera, it literally "skips" the formatting option. any suggestions?

I cannot get the format option on the coolpix 2200 camera


The 2200 works with SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

The 4600 works with SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

I have a sandisk sdhc class4 4GB card and my camera ( nikon coolpix L4 ) is telling me card cant be used?


I would try to insert it in your PC and then format the card. Then reinsert in your camera and
see if that helps.

Why won't my Nikon coolpix L1 camera work with my sandisk SDHC card?


SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Another possibility- SD type cards have a little switch on the card that can write protect or "lock" it. Take the card out of the camera and check this switch. To unlock it, it should be moved towards the edge of the card which has the electrical contacts.

Finally, it may be that the card is not formatted. Most come pre-formatted, but there is a format function in the camera that you can try. Formatting deletes anything already on the card.

I purchased a new memory card (sandisk sdhc ) it will not format?


Get a new camera :-)

Seriously, the Z740 is designed to work with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the camera, they will not work. You need to buy SD cards 2GB and smaller.

CoolPix 5000 "OUT OF MEMORY" message that we can't figure out


At 4GB size, your memory card is likely a SDHC card, and not a standard SD card. Although they look the same, there is a difference in formatting. Unfortunately your model camera was designed before the SDHC format came out, and it will not work with your camera. But fortunately standard SD cards are very inexpensive these days, and you should be able to purchase a good 2GB standard card for around $6 with shipping:
