Question about Nikon Cameras

1 Answer

My NikonD80 always numbers each exposure on each Sd card loaded into computer in the same number sequence - DSC0001 etc- this makes it difficult to move images into other folders without having to give every single image a new name - this is not feasible when dealing with large quantities.

Change the File No. Sequence option in the Setup menu from Off to On. This will make the camera take up from after the last number each time you replace or format the memory card.

Full details are in the "Basic Camera Settings: The Setup Menu" section of the manual (page 101 and especially page 106 in my copy).

Out of memory message after 3 photos on new memory card


Hi Bob,
Your camera has two memories. It has a 23 Mb internal memory in addition to the SD add-on memory. If you look on page 30 of the Reference Section of your camera's manual Number of Exposures Remaining table (link below), you will see that when set at the highest resolution, your camera will only allow three exposures in the 23 Mb memory. I would go into your camera's menu and make sure that you have set it to use the SD card instead of the internal memory. You may also want to take lower resolution pictures to increase the number of pictures you can fit in memory. Also, make sure that once you do that, you reformat your SD card in the camera, not on the computer.

Canon SD870IS loaded with Poloaroid 32GB. Cannot download from camera to computer. On camera indicates"communication error"


You camera is Not brand new, and can work with SD cards. The card you did insert is at least a SDHC card, and could be a SDXC card.
When no firmware update was delivered from Canon, with the possibility to read and write SDHC cards, you can't use these cards.
The max you can use is a 4GB SD card, but it could be difficult to find one, because most firms now make 4 GByte SDHC cards.

I erased all the files on my memory card and when i put it in my camera it says the card is still full


Solution overview: You need to "clean" the SD card by using the clean command in Diskpart and then format the card in Disk Management. This solution will show you how to accomplish this.

1. Plug the SD Card into the computer.

2. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
3. Type "cmd" into the dialog box and press enter to open a command prompt.

4. Type "Diskpart" into the command line of the command prompt to start Diskpart. Wait for Diskpart to load.
5. Type "List Disk" and press enter.
6. Take note of the number of the disk that's associated with your SD card.
7. Type "Select Disk X" where X = the number of the disk that's associated with your SD card and press enter. Make sure the command prompt reports that Disk X is selected.
8. Type "Clean" or "Clean all" and press enter. Clean will be faster but might not solve your problem. If using the clean command doesn't solve your problem, then repeat steps 1-8 and type "Clean all".
9. Wait for Diskpart to complete the cleaning operation - this may take some time so wait until it's completed!
10. Close command prompt.

11. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
12. Type "DISKMGMT.MSC" into the dialog box and press enter. Wait for Disk Manager to load.

13. In Disk Manager, scroll down and select the SD Card.
14. Right click and select "New Simple Volume".
15. Select Next, Assign Drive Letter, and select "Next" again.
16. Select "FAT32" for File System and "Default" for Allocation Unit Size. Fill in whatever you want for the Volume Label. Make sure "Perform quick format" is checked and click OK.
17. Wait for formatting to complete and remove SD card from computer.

18. Plug SD card into camera to see if the problem is solved.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa. Post back if you have any questions or problems.

You have three choices for file numbering, controlled by Custom Setting #D7:

Off: File numbers are always started at 0001 whenever a new folder is created, when the memory card is formatted, or a new memory card is inserted into the camera.

On: File numbers are incremented until they reach 9999, at which point a new folder is created and the file numbering will again begin at 0001.

Reset: The file number is reset to one more than the current number in the current folder. If there are no pictures in the current folder, the number is reset to 0001.

Because the numbering only uses four digits, numbers are going to repeat every ten thousand pictures no matter what you do.

This code is almost always a false code. I would try clearing it by entering the following key sequence:
Press "Clear" then "Exposure Mode" then "Clear" then "Exposure Mode" (Note that the exposure mode key is the far left key and that these 4 keys must be pressed within 4 seconds)
The display should have gone blank if these 4 keys were pressed properly.
Now enter 14 as if you were making 14 copies then press the Print Button.
This should clear the H4 code and the machine should operate normally.
If not and the H4 comes back then you have either a thermal fuse or heater lamp failure.
Good Luck

I cannot access any of the maps I loaded onto my SD card


First of all, the maps must be created and match the serial number of the GPS you will run it on. Next the maps must be transferred to the SD card in the directory /MAP_DATA The GPS always looks at this directory for any map.

Exposure number in Canon does not change


Due to the age of the camera, the Ultra 2 CF card may be using a different architecture than your other CF cards. In other words, the card is incompatible with the camera.

One other problem may be that the camera is not designed to recognize a card which is of a larger capacity.

As I cannot find the 300D on Canon's site it is difficult to find exact specifications as to the abilities of the camera, as to what type of CF card it will accept, what the largest capacity it will accept, etc.

A more fixable problem would be either that the card is not formatted properly - which may be possible through the camera itself. Please try to navigate the camera's menu to find a format option. If not, you can insert it into a CF card reader and attempt formatting it that way. Please see Here for formatting through a camera.

Also, try Here for yet another possible explanation of your problem, as #6.

If the camera is meant to take the capacity and type of CF card, and is not damaged, the only other explanation is that it is write-protected. As I do not know the exact features of your CF card, I cannot say whether or not it has a manual write-protection switch. If it does, it would be a small sliding piece of plastic or metal on the side of the card which toggles the write-protection feature. It may also be write-protected as a file system, in which case you will need to format it.

If the card refuses to format due to a write-protection, you will need to remove the write-protection from the card first and then format it.

The following picture shows a CF card with a write-protection switch on the left hand side.

We have downloaded the software for our MAC X so that we can load the recorded material into the program to convert to wave files. We are using a Swann USB 2.0 card reader. We can't get the computer to...


I found some useful formating instructions at http://osx.tribe.net. Note: FAT 16 only supports 2 GB or less. I had no problems reading FAT 16 formatted SD cards in Leopard. I revised the instructions a bit:
To format the SD card, you will need the path to the SD card device and the SD card device number.
1. Insert the SD Card into a card reader.
2. If you don't know how to find the device number of the SD Card, here is one way to do it:
2b. Open Disk Utility
2c. Highlight the SD Card device (upper icon), not the SD Card volume (lower icon)
2d. Click Erase at the top of the window
2e. Select Volume Format: MS-DOS (FAT) Click Erase... > Click Erase
The SD Card Volume Name will change to the UNIX device number e.g. "disk5s1". Note this number as it will change by itself to "Untitled". It is now formatted in MS-DOS FAT 32. We need to reformat it in FAT 16.

Once you have the device number of the SD Card, you need the path to the SD card device.
3. For my Mac, the path to devices is "/dev". In a terminal window: type "cd /dev" and hit the "Return" key to go to the "dev" directory. Then type "ls" (with a lower case L) and "Return" key. You should see the SD Card device number listed.

Formatting the SD Card in FAT 16:
4. In Disk Utility, highlight the SD Card device and click Unmount at the top, not Eject. The desktop icon of the SD card will disappear.
5. Go to the Terminal window. Be careful to type the following command with the correct letter case and spacing. Again, make sure you type the correct device number and path as you can very easily erase your hard drive in UNIX.
Type the command:
newfs_msdos -F 16 (path to SD Card device)/(SD Card device number)
e.g. newfs_msdos -F 16 /dev/disk5s1
and hit the "Return" key.
6. If you get just a new prompt (or a prompt with some warnings, e.g. below), the command executed successfully. You can remove the SD Card; it is now formatted in FAT 16. You can verify this in Disk Utility after mounting the SD Card.
If you get some instructions on the newfs_msdos command with a new prompt, the command did not execute. Make sure you enter the command with the correct case and spacing. Hint: to re-enter a previous command you typed, hit the up arrow repeatedly. For more information, type: "man newfs_msdos". Scroll with arrow keys. Type "q" to quit and return to prompt.

Copying photos to CD in the order they were taken, by date.


The only way to do this is to right click on each image and rename it to the day sequence you wish or better still simply number the with a 3 digit sequence -001 002 003 etc., Once you have got the hang of it it is surprising how quick you can get So you retain the original number and put the sequence number in front like this 001-4/23 002-4/23 etc., for that day then 001-24/4 0024/24 and so on You then have them in numerical order in daily batches
