Hope it's not the reader in the camera, first try rubbing the card contacts gently with an eraser and blowing in the slot. It may solve it, if not looks like an expensiver repair job.

My Nikon coolpix 5200 will not let me re-set it. When I get the re-set on the screen it just skips past it. I just keep getting ( this card cannot be used ) on the screen & no memory card is inserted

If you can read the SD card with your computer, copy (backup) all images on the card to your computer. Make sure you saved ALL images. Then put the card back in the camera and FORMAT it. It is in the TOOL MENU that looks like a WRENCH.

My pc and nikon coolpix s3300 wont read my memory card, when they have worked in the past

Unfortunately Flash drives / Memory cards once corrupted are pretty much useless... But, I would recommend you format the memory card from a Linux based PC, If you are lucky, you may be able to use the card again (Windows is a B****).
Moving forward, keep in mind that the card should not be filled to capacity (Meaning: a few MBs of free space should always be available). So next time when you are taking photographs make sure that you don't exceed 90% capacity of the memory card.

SD card won't stay in the slot of my Panasonic Lumix DMC-SL80

is the lock on the card by chance. also depending on how old the camera is and how big the sd card is in gb. the lumix may not be able to handle that size of card, too many gb. My lumix would only accept up to 4 gb, so when I moved to 16 they did not work.

My Kodak M530 had been working alright since I bought it on December 2010 but suddenly stopped reading the SDHC card about a week ago. The card is fine because I can read the content from my Mac....

Using the internal memory locks some cameras into that mode. To get your card to work again, do this...with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, re-insert the card and it should work.

Camera doesn't get past welcome window with memory card installed

Have you tried another brand of memory card ?
Try a memory card from a friend that has been used for a while. If it locks up with other cards then you have problem with camera. Check if needs to be set to read from memory cards above certain sizes ?

Cant read SD card.

first, try to take the "micro" card out of the main body and re-insert. the internal contacts may just be a little bit dirty. (you may want to also GENTLY buff the internal AND external contacts with a SOFT {cotton} emery type of fingernail board or Q-tip with a SMALL amount of rubbing alcohol. {let it get dry before you re-assemble}). try that and see if it works for you.

Nikon Coolpix 5200 Getting Message ""Memory Card is Write Protected"

Inspect your SD card carefully. Some SD cards come with a write-protect lock switch on the side of the card. When looking at an SD card from the top there is one required notch on the right side (the side with the diagonal notched corner) and on the left side there is usually a switch. This is the write-protect switch. When this write-protect switch is in the down position (away from the end that is inserted) then it is write protected and read-only. When the switch is in the up position it is write enabled.
