Re: CompactFlash storage card

Make sure you're using an ATA-compatible Type-I CompactFlash memory card. Make sure you've installed the card correctly. The card's label should be facing the front of the camera, and the arrow(s) on the label should point in.

Got a card intializing msg!!!


The S7000 has always been known to have some problems with regular CompactFlash cards, with both power drains and limitations reported (the S7000 seems unable to handle CompactFlash cards above 2GB, as it doesn't support FAT32). I imagine it's possible that there are other potential problems associated with this.

It's usually recommended that, instead of using CompactFlash cards, you use either xD-Picture Cards or IBM/Hitachi Microdrives, which are both fully compatible with the S7000.

Formattting again and again my SanDisk Extreme III 4.0 Gb CompactFlash Card


Hi, It may be possible that your CompactFlash Card is nearing its end. You can try formatting it after you have downloaded into your PC all the pictures. Try to use the camera's built-in formatting function. Thereafter plug it back to your PC and use a disk checking utility such as scandisk or Norton Disk Doctor. Do an intensive check including the free space. If the disk check shows any errors, then the CompactFlash Card is no longer a reliable storage media and you are better off purchasing a replacement rather than gamble that it will still work. If for some reason, even your PC can not access the card, you have to use a file recovery program to recover/download/copy the picture files and then try the disk check utility. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Storage capacity limit


Only the Camera Manual will tell you the max capacity. They do have their limits and you could a be wasting your money or even find the camera does not accept it. Check the manual thoroughly and if still in doubt put the question to the Nikon Technical Support Team.

ERROR MESSAGE: Corrupted CompactFlash card.


Storing digital picture information to a CompactFlash card (as when a digital image is taken) is similar to storing data on the hard drive of a computer -- if the process is stopped or interrupted, the information stored is not complete and, therefore, "corrupts" the storage media. A computer will display a warning message indicating that the hard drive has errors, while a camera will display a message indicating the memory card is corrupted. The CompactFlash card corruption can be caused by: * Turning off the camera power before the photo information is completely stored on the card. * Removing the card before the photo information is completely stored on it. * Taking a second picture before the camera has finished storing the previous picture. * Camera batteries that are near the end of their life and need to be replaced. Once a CompactFlash card is corrupted, it can be used again only by performing a Format procedure. IMPORTANT! When a CompactFlash card is re-formatted, any pictures stored on it will be lost forever and cannot be recovered.

Formatting a CompactFlash card.


A digital camera's Format command is used to prepare a removeable CompactFlash memory card to accept digital image information from the camera. A card should be formatted when: * the card is new and has never been used before. * the card was used in a different camera or other device that accepts CompactFlash cards. * the card has become "corrupted" and will not store additional images.
