Memory card cabablility

Hi! I just bought the Nikon Coolpix L18 Digital Camera and I was wondering if my old SD Memory card was compatible with this new camera. It is a SanDisk Memory Stick Pro Duo 256mb. I plan on buying a newer & bigger card but wanted to know if I can use the one I have for backup or extra pics.
Thanks for your help,
Chrissy

Hi mystical9473,

Even if your camera does not have a slot for this type of card, you may be able to keep it for backup or storage. There are memory card readers available that read several different formats, meaning you can transfer files back and forth between the cards or your computer.

Depending on the prices you find, you may be able to purchase an additional SD card for less than a media card reader, so do your research before making a purchase.

Thank you,
Jason,

I am having nikon coolpix L18 camera, it is working with internal memory card. When i inserted external memory card, it display "this card can not be used". I checked ext memory card in another...


Your camera supports SD HC, multimediacard and SD memory cards, is that card of a different type? you will get this problem if the card is of too large capacity too, your camera ,might have an upper limit for supported memory capacities.

I found one in my desk at work. It's missing a memory card thus no one is using it. What kind does it take? Can it be by any brand?


It can take a SD memory card or SDHC memory card, recommended brands: SanDisk, Toshiba and Panasonic from 128 MB to 4 GB capacities.

The manual and other information for the Coolpix L18 is available from Nikon: http://www.nikonusa.com/Nikon-Products/Product-Archive/Digital-Camera/25596/COOLPIX-L18.html . The list of memory cards is on page 91.

I hope this helps.

How much memmory support does it provide nikon coolpix p4 vr


The P4 has about 23MB of internal memory, which might hold five pictures at the camera's best resolution. The camera also accepts SD cards up to 2GB in size, which should hold several hundred pictures. And, of course, you can use multiple cards.

What is the best compatible SD Card for a Nikon Coolpix L18 camera?


You can use any SD or SDHC card. It's your call as to what's "best". You can go with the largest, fastest, or least expensive. Or you can choose one with the prettiest label, even if it's hidden from sight most of the time.

Out of memory on Nikon Coolpix L18 camera


I noticed that, after dumping the full SD card onto my computer, I didn't seat it perfectly back in the camera (my finger bottomed out on the batteries before the memory card 'clicked' into place. With the camera unable to see the SD card, it defaulted to the internal memory, which is very small.

I got the SD card seated fully and the "Out of Memory" message went away.

Camera does not recognize memory card


It appears the SD card the retailer sold is not compatible with the camera. Put in a different memory card and camera works fine.
