Try opening My Computer (or Computer if you have Vista) and then connect it to your computer. You should see a new removable disk show up in the screen. Right-Click on the new removable disk and choose Format, on the format screen click Start and then on the next warning screen click OK. Should be all set.

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My pictures wont download from my Coolpix P80. Sometimes it works after a few attempts but sometimes it won't detect pictures at all.


The problem with you Nikon Coolpix P80 needs to be narrowed down as it could be down to few issues.

  1. Faulty USB Cable - Can only narrow this down by trying the other solutions below
  2. Faulty USB port on computer - try another port or another computer?
  3. Static build up on the USB port. Switch the computer off AND unplug it from the mains. Leave it like this for 30 minutes to allow any static to disipate.
  4. Corrupt memory card - If you have a card reader you could try and read the card from the reader. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD IF YOU HAVE DATA ON IT YOU WISH TO RETRIEVE. If required you may need to format the card in a PC and then place it back into the camera and format it in the camera.
Hope the suggestions help.

Why wont my p80 allow me to format.

Your memory card is probably write-protected or if not it is busted. To verify if your memory card is locked you can easily remove it from your digital camera, and check for a small lever and set it to 'unlock'.
If this doesnt solve your problem, your memory card is probably corrupted/busted/defective.
