Memory card compatibility with 4300

I'm buying more memory from Dell in the form of 2: 512MB cards. This leaves me with the cards I'm removing which are 2: 256MB cards. Can I give these to friends/family who own Dells that may not be exactly the 4300 series? -

In other words... - are there such things as card compatible cousins to the 430 series?

Are you talking about the memory sticks inside the computer?

If so, then yes. If you have DDR memory, it will work in most computers that use DDR memory. It's best not to mix memory, so you'd want your friends to completely remove their old stuff first.

When you compare your RAM to theirs, match up the length and where the notches are along the gold contacts of the memory sticks. If they match perfectly, then you're good to go!

From oldest to newest, we have these kinds of memory
EDO
SDRAM
RDRAM
DDR
DDR2
DDR3

Brand new PC's are using 2 and 3 (2 being the most common) Most PC's are just plain DDR because that used to be the most common. Other than this, there are other differences in memory, but they moreoften don't make a difference. =-]

I bought new 4 gb card for my coolpix 4300 and it doesnt work


Remove memory card, go in the menu and check the internal memory is wiped clean, if not! erase all pictures and restart the camera, when that is done the memory card should function once you re-install it.

I have a Dell dimension 4300 running Windows XP SP3. The system has 1 Gb of RAM. I removed the AGP graphics card that came with the system and installed the VisionTek Radeon 256M X1300DMSPCI card into a...


Yes, it is compatible, just that you must first uninstall the previous video driver, then configure the BIOS to route the video signal to the PCI and not the AGP and only then install the new card. And in the end it will behave worse than the previous AGP card you got because the PCI interface is way slower than the AGP.
Just buy a good AGP card, PCI cards are made for office pc's in which the onboard one is totally obsolete.

MP3 downloads to cell phone not working


If the memory card is not detected on phone then there will certainly be problem with the memory card and not offcourse with phone.
If you wish to go for format and clean all data of Memory card and then try to use, may be an option left for you.
Also check out the format of music file you are trying to copy is in compatible form (ie mp3, wmv or mpeg)
Otherwise go to nearby mobile repair shop and get the task done.

Card cannot be used


This means that the card memory can not be read, make sure the contacts are, clean. use pressurized air cans available from most places like, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Staples, etc.

lightly blow out the memory card and the camera slot, check pin alignment, Format the memory card on your computer first and re-insert in camera. Use another card to see if error continues.
