Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera
Well i deleted some pics of my camera and not even 30 minutes later it began to say on the screen THIS CARD CANNOT BE USED. i dont know what happend ive had the camera going on two months and ive never had this problem. can you fix it.
Make sure the gold contacts on the card are clean and, as far as possible, that no foreign matter has got onto the corresponding contacts in the camera.
Did you delete the pics when the card was still in the camera or did you take the card out & put it in a reader attached to a PC?
If the former, then I suggest you get yourself a card reader for your PC - they're very cheap now - and use that to copy any remaining pics from the card to the PC.and then format the card in the PC. Then re-format it AGAIN in the camera. If you can't read the card with a PC card reader then you can try to format it (you'll lose any pics on it). If that doesn't work then the card has probably developed a fault. Best to bin it & buy a new one. They're so cheap now it's often not worth wasting time trying to get money back from where you bought the camera.
If the latter and the card cannot be read by the PC then the situation is the same as above. If it can read it then copy all remaining pics from it to the PC then reformat it on the PC. Then try it again in the camera: reformat it in the camera and see if it works. If not then there's a good chance the camera has developed a fault.
