Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

3 Answers

Memory card appears full but its empty?!

I use a Nikon D70s and my memory card is a Sandisk Ultra 2 GB card. I am photographing my best friends wedding tomorrow and now my card won't work. I shoot a lot, maybe a few hundred shots a week, what I've been doing recently is coming home, opening the browser in photoshop and looking at the images then copying the images into a folder then copying the images into the bin on my laptop. I've then been putting the card into my camera and formatting the seemingly empty card. Over the last few weeks I've noticed times when the camera acts as though there are images on the disc but when I hit the play button it tells me it's empty. Even after then formatting it the camera tells me there are images on it by telling me there are less free spaces than there should be. I have no idea what to do now-can anyone please help me?

Although the computer may indicate the card is empty, it is better to format it in the camera in which you intend to use it. Or else bite the bullet and invest in a new card - they are not expensive these days.

Although formatting the card should take care of that, I have used cards to transfer data from one computer to another, then the folder on the card is invisible to the camera, but still taking up space. Empty the card via the card reader by dragging files to the trash, then emptying the trash.

New Nikon Coolpix W100 does not properly read new SanDisk Ultra memory card. It shows only 2 shot capacity on 64 GB card. Tried multiple cards with same result.

That camera should handle SD,SDHC and SDXC memory cards. Small cameras do not typically show capacity. You shoot until it is full. One way to test the capacity is to take a long movie. My larger DSLR will tell me how many shots I can store with the current resolution. My Coolpix cameras do not show this information.

My memory card is of sandisk ultra 64 gb nd its is empty.. but when i format it on camera(nikon 3000) it says card full.. plz help what to do. Thank You.

You need to use a card compatible with the D3000.

The D3000 works with SD cards (up to 2GB) and with SDHC cards (up to 32GB). It does not work with SDXC cards (larger than 32GB).

When sandisk ultra 4 gb inserted into nikon it reads out of memory. the card brand new . just purchased

Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards. It is often difficult to find out the maximum capacity a camera will use, as today's memory cards are much larger that those available when the manuals for the camera was written.

Trouble with memory cards

Yep, I solved mine by replacing the CF Pins at the bottom of the slot.

Aiptek IS-DV Memory Full message when memory card is empty

Exactly the same thing happend to me with my brand-new Aiptek. Turns out it was the no-name brand SD card that I got from China which destroyed it. Aiptek was kind enough to replace it for free since it was under warranty. Aiptek's caution: Stick to brands like SanDisk, Dane-Elec, Kingston, Transcend or PNY. Purchase from resellers like Target, Best Buy, Newegg.com or Amazon.com. Avoid MINI & MACRO style cards. NO Sandisk Ultra II or Extreme III, class 6. AVOID Hi-SPEED!

Can a SDHC card be used with a CF card adapter in Nikon D70s?

You would have to get an SDHC to CF adapter which could be pricey and they are hard to come by.

Locked Memory Card

I use a Nikon D300 and have Sandisk Compact Flash memory cards. i ahve not come across this problem but would suggest that you insert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card. This should clear any errors in the system BUT IT WILL ALSO WIPE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS YOU AHVE TAKEN when formating the memory card.

Nikon D70

Greetings,
It is actually an error message generated by your compact flash and means that the card is no longer readable. A lot of D70 owners have reported this error without being able to find another solution other than reinserting the card or changing the card to a different brand. In my D70s I use Sandisk Extreme III memory and, knock on wood, have not yet had this error. You could also try cleaning out the memory card slot and check to see that all pins are aligned and not bent.
Good Luck,
-WN
