To get your card to work, you must get rid of the pictures in the internal memory. Here's how: with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert your card and it should work properly.
Download your Nikon COOLPIX L18 User's Manual from this LINK. Read pages 75, 76, 89, and 90.
It will show you the steps in transferring/copying of pictures from the camera's internal memory into your memory card. Other functions are also available for reading.
I hope this works for you. Thanks for using Fixya!
4GB "SD" cards are almost always actually SDHC (high capacity) cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
So your camera is not able to use the 4GB card, and is ignoring it and using internal memory only. That memory is tiny and won't hold many pictures, and when it is full, the camera cannot work at all. You need to delete the pics in the internal memory and get a memory card your camera can understand (2GB or less).
If you are using the Automatic setting you should be getting fairly good pictures. Cameras are programed to make things easy in this setting and to make us happy.
If you are using the Priority settings (Shutter Priority/Aperture Priority) or Manual setting and getting bad pictures the best thing to do is either get a book on how the camera works or do a course. You have to be the Master of your Camera - even if it is a little 'happy snappy'. If you understand how a camera works you can apply it to all cameras. There is a relationship between Aperture and Shutter (that I call Zen) that gives you the correct exposure. i think a little study may help you....
I'm assuming the slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position. Have you formatted the card in your other camera or does the card contain pictures taken on the other camera? This could be the problem. To get the card to work in your FX5, download any pics from the card to your computer and then, format the card in the FX5. In the future, don't use the card in more than one camera.
Not all of the lights are lit when in AF mode, there are different ways for AF to work and you should refer to your manual to understand how to set up/understand what it is doing. Camera manufacturers seem to make their customers believe that their camera is easy to use, and yet fill the thing with all of the technical stuff/gadgets which make it very difficult for a beginner to understand. Hope this is of some use!
Have you looked in my computer for the camera?? Try running the camera and scanner wizard in accessories from the start menu. If this does not work, go to control panel>printers and other hardware and click on scanners and cameras. If your model is not there then click an an imaging device (top left under imaging tasks) and follow the steps putting in your model ect.
If all of this fails then there are other possibilities
