Problem with SD card reading

I have a nikon coolpix s7 and I have been using a 1GB SD card with it. In a couple of ocassions, I have used the SD card to view pictures in a lap top and had not problem with either the camera or computer reading it.

However, when we took the card to print the pictures and download them on a CD the same coputer that previously read it all of a sudden it would not do it any more. Also, once the card is entered in the camera, it would display 'This card cannot be read'.

I really do not want to lose the pictures. I could care less fore the camera or the card. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks

Sandisk and others have software for rescuing images from their cards. They work quite well.

My memory card works perfectly in my lap top and in my cellphone, but when i try to use on my camera, it says that "this card cannot be read". What can/should I do?


When you use a memory card, it formats itself, using a single memory card on all three things probably isn't the best idea. What you could do, is get the small sd card for your phone, and get the adapter so you can view the pictures from your phone on the computer. Then get a totally new memory card for your camera they are super cheap. I would suggest getting a 2gb or higher. I hope I helped.

I Purchased a new SDHC card from Argos which was 4 GB as the one that came with my Nikon coolpix 3700 is a 16mb I put this new one into my camera and the camera showed that you couldn't use this card,...


Your camera will accept a maximum SD card capacity of 1GB. It simply isn't capable of handling anything of a larger capacity and in particular is incompatible with the more technically advanced SDHC cards.

Your fix is to either replace your camera with a later model or to stick to using SD cards with a maximum 1GB capacity.

Nikkon coolpix L1 After downloading memory card .. then putting back into camera. Reading says "cannot read memory card." Checked card out at store verified that it is good. Why does it not work in my...


A couple things you might try.. remove the card carefully and check the position of the "lock" tab. Make sure it is fully in the unlocked position - not locked or a point between the two positions. Reinsert and try again.

It sounds lie you're using a card reader to download the pictures - try formatting the card while in the card reader via computer. The card should be completely empty when the format is complete. You can even try copying files to and from the card to make sure its ok and format again. When complete, try again in camera.

If the problem persists, check to make sure the card is on Nikon approved memory card list for use with the Coolpix L1 (provided below):

The following is a list of approved memory cards for the Coolpix L1 digital still camera. These cards have been tested and approved for use with the Coolpix L1.
The L1 uses SD (Secure Digital) memory. Sandisk:
  • 64MB, 128 MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1 GB, 256MB*, 512MB*, 1GB*
Toshiba:
  • 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1 GB, 128 MB*, 256MB*, 512MB
Panasonic:
  • 64MB, 128MB, 256MB, 1 GB, 256MB*, 512MB*, 1GB*
* - Cards rated for 10MB/s (high speed) Other cards have not been tested. For more details on the memory cards listed above, please contact the manufacturer.

The list came direct from Nikon Support. Other cards may work, but only those on the list are approved. Successful use of other cards can not be guaranteed.


I hope this helps!

Nikon coolpix 3100 - maximum card support?


yes you would. It can inly accept 1GB cards. Just as a tip large capacity cards make it slow to recover from a write after taking a pic so if you can get say 512K cards still use those they recover from writing a lot faster

Good Day, I have Nikon coolpix P4. The manual states 1GB SD card max. What is the Max SD card I can really use? Can I use SDHC Memory Cards and up to what size: tks Bat


Do you have any reason to doubt the manual? If the manual doesn't specify SDHC, then I wouldn't bother trying any but stay with SD only.

Unable to transfer photos from camera to lap top. coolpix L2


i have seen a couple of coolpix cameras that no longer work with the USB link ... i though that maybe the "picture project" software had to be loaded first .. but in my case that didnt help .. nor did a new USB cable .. now i am thinking that the USB port is easily damaged (probably from static discharge) ... i got things at least workable by getting a "USB to SD card adapter" .. i just plug in the SD card to get the images .. the single card adapter is small, low cost and works with the laptop nicely (portable) .. that works out good for me since i can be editing a card with some pictures while someone else is still taking pictures with a second card .. ..then we swap .. the adapter is a little easier to carry around than the USB cable as far a portability is concerned .. and that extends the useful life of the camera without the expense of repairs ..

Coolpix 4300 needs driver & update for vista


this solution was originally written by a fellow expert dauphine



You can download PictureProject software from this address: http://chsv-soft.nikon-image.com/jpn/software/win/S-P2____-175WU-JPNJP.exe

That is the only Nikon software that supports Vista since your camera is "outdated".

Here is a quote from Nikon site:


  • We had released a Windows Vista-compatible version of PictureProject, v1.7.5, for use with the models listed below, and all models that followed. PTP (models supporting the PTP protocol) and Mass storage USB transfer options can be used for camera connection. However, the camera's transfer button can not be used to transfer pictures over a PTP connection. Set the USB transfer option to Mass storage to enable the camera's transfer button.
    Currently, the new Nikon Transfer and View NX will replace Picture Project as our new Image Transfer and Browser applications. These applications support the same Nikon products as Picture Project.

Compatibility with SDHC/SD2 Logo?


never try to use more than what the spec recommends, when it says 1gb* max use 1gbmax. It is better to use two or more 1gb max than one 4gb card cause when the 4gb card brakes down you'll lose all 4gbmem, unlike when you have four 1gb. besides 1gb is too much or too big or i may say enough to mem too many pictures!
