    The user manual indicate that when you insert the memory card make sure that the label is facing up.but no matter how I insert the card the camera can't see it.I don't know what to do?

I am currently using a 1gb and a 2gb card with my camera. The only problem that I found with the 2gb card was that the camera won't format the card at 2gb. It will make it 1gb. Solution: don't format with the camera. Works great !!!

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.

I own an xti camera and currently use a 4GB card for storage. The card works fine in the camera and will hold 1000 photos at the largest file size.

I recently purchased an Epson Photo PC 3100Z Digital Camera (used). It appears to take pictures but does not store in on the memory card. A code 181 flashes in the top display window. The memory card is...

It is probably having trouble with the capacity of the memory card. 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.

You don't say what type of memory card you have. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

New Memory Card

The problem is that the largest xD card that your camera can support is an M or H 512mb card. The 1gb or 2gb card is not compatible.
The firmware in the camera cannot support memory storage with that capacity. The camera came out before those cards did and there no plans to upgrade the camera to allow those types of cards to be supported.

Nikon coolpix 5700 shows no memory left after purchasing a new card & batteries

The largest CompactFlash card that Nikon approved for the 5700 is 256MB, which is what I'm using in my 5700. That's small by today's standards and you probably won't even find it in stores. I see some web sellers have 256MB cards for only $6 or so. Other commercial card sellers on the web claim that the 5700 will handle CF cards up to 1GB capacity. That's what I might try since online they're selling for as little as $8 plus shipping. Given that the 5700 was introduced in 2002, any cards bigger than 1GB probably won't work.

Internal stoage loss. Protax dc 1200 digital camera

Hi,

It is possible that the camera's internal storage media has a limited capacity ( I was made to understand only 32mb). Perhaps what you need to do is use an add-on SC Card to the memory with a bigger capacity, say 1Gb.

It is also possible that you simply need to re-format the memory card/storage.

In some models/versions, settings such as in SHQ (super high quality) while in 12 megapixels or high image resolution (4036 X 3026) or such a combination would result in an image size that is quite big and therefore would occupy a big portion of the memory.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
