Question about Nikon Coolpix 2100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Nikon Coolpix 2100 Lexar starter memory card has become unreadable

I have always used a Radio Shack Dazzle device to read memory card on computer. I recently tried to use a new Sandisk CF Ultra II card and an error message showed up when I tried to read it although the pics look fine in the camera screen. The error states the files are corrupted and unreadable. Trying to use again the Lexar starter memory card and now it has become corrupted too! Names of archive carpets change to 100JIKOJ (???) and the pics show as jpg but cannot be opened.
Please help!

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

I wish to use 1Gb CF card of any make on my Nikon Coolpix 2100 digital Camera, which has effective 2 mega pixels. Will the Camera support it? Prasad


Sorry to say but this camera can only support a maximum 512 MB of memory card so the 1GB size will not be read by this unit.

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

New SanDisk 4GB CF Card - Coolpix displays out of memory


This is because the Coolpix 2100 and 31000 models cannot handle a card of that large a capacity. As it's only a 2MP camera anyway it doesn't need it.

The Coolpix 2100/3100 will usually accept up to a 512MB CF card, and 1GB Lexar CF cards up to and including the 24x WA write accelerated (although write acceleration itself offers no benefits on this camera). With Sandisk only a plain old and now obsolete SDFB allows a 1GB card to be used and the regular Sandisk Ultra (not Ultra II or later) will only work up to 512MB.

The camera was discontinued long before these much larger CF cards were released and Nikon no longer actively support the product so no firmware updates will be available. The hardware wouldn't support such cards anyway.

I have a nikon coolpix 2000 camera with a lexar starter memory card. What card should I buy for more memory?


There are two schools of thought on this. One school says get the biggest card you can afford so you can take as many pictures as possible.

The other school says buy two (or more) smaller cards and swap them periodically. This way, if a card goes bad (or lost, or stolen), then you'll only lose half (or less) of your pictures.

It really depends on your own personal preferences (and budget). As for brands, you should not experience any problems with any of the major brands. If you're feeling particularly paranoid, you could always select one from the list of approved cards in the manual.

I want to upload pictures from my camera to the computer nikon coolpix 2100


You must have a software in your computer to read the pictures. It can be kodak easy share, hp photo smart, or any photosmart software. This softwares might be available in the brands website for free.
Your computer needs a photo program to upload your pictures.

One easy way is to go to a store with photo service and have your camera card pictures put on a CD. This CD usually brings photo programs sofware and you will be able to use them next time from your camera into the program then into the computer.

Coolpix 2100 Just Stopped Working


It sounds like your card has got corrupted, probably because the batteries ran out while the camera was writing to the card. It's important that you don't use the card until you've recovered the pictures from it.

If you have a lexar card, the chances are that it came with some card recovery software. I'd recommend you use this to recover the pictures from your card before reformatting it, then it should be good to go.

If you have no luck with formatting it after recovery, the card must be damaged, but I'd be very surprised if so.
