Sd card won't stay in the slot of my nikon coolpix S210

When sd card is placed in slot will not stay in place-keeps popping back up. If push it down manually and close cover, camera will not read the sd reader and only uses internal memory of camera.

I keep getting card cannot be used every time i put a memory card in my nikon coolpix s210 what can i do to fix this

If formatting does not work then most likely the memory card id faulty.
Memory cards such as SD and USB memory sticks do not last forever. they do fail eventually after many writes and file file deletes or damaged by not using Safely Remove Hardware on the computer.

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.

I have been able to upload photos before from my nikon, but when I plug it in, the program doesn't launch.

1) Make sure the camera is turned on and pluged in correctly via the provided USB cable.
2) If it is and the Nikon software still doesn't launch, you have 3 options:
a) Look up for the program in your start up folder to launch it manually.
b) Go to "My Computer" and select the camera. This will open a folder where you can view the pictures and copy/cut them to another folder.
c) Unplug the camera and turn it off, and take out the SD card. Then plug it into the SD port in your computer*. If while pushing the card into the slot you feel a spring pushing it out, keep pushing until you feel a click. For taking it out, push it again.
*This step requires your computer to have the slot, if it is relatively new, it will.

Nikon Coolpix 5900/4 GB Kingston SD Card

The 5900 uses SD cards. The 4GB card you have is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the 5900. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

Memory card will not stay down in a nikon coolpix s210

Hi, I have exactly the same problem. However, instead of getting a new body with a broken screen and exchanging my screen (One of the only ways round it) I thought I'd try something.

I folded a piece of paper (Quite a small piece) and put in on top of the card when it is popped. I then just closed the battery/card cover and it stayed in place. This is a cheap way of fixing it, it's now been fine for a while, it's a bit of a shoddy fix but it's better than paying nikon £50 to get it fixed.

It takes a couple of trys, getting the paper the right size was a little bit of a pain but it now works fine.

Good luck,

Coolpix l5 - SD card won't seat

The Nikon are very good about placing a sd symbol on the door of the memory compartment. The trick is to align the dog ear side of the memory stick with the picture on the door the push down until the stick bottoms out in the slot it should then lock in to place. Conversely to remove it push down again until it un locks.
