Question about Nikon Cameras

SOURCE: 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.

Follow these steps: 1. If you have a SD card reader, insert the SD card and look for it in Windows Explorer. In this case, mine was labeled F: 2. Right Click on the drive for the Card Reader (IMPORTANT) and choose FORMAT. 3. Format card with default settings. 4. Turn Camera on and go to MENU> FORMAT CARD 5. Before answering the next question, insert SD card into camera. You will hear it beep twice. 6. Choose FORMAT and the card should be formatted for use on the camera. Cheers!

Other brands and capacities of cards may work, but Nikon cannot guarantee their operation. Check with the manufacturer of the third-party card for compatibility information. Nikon recommends keeping one of the approved cards available for troubleshooting.
Multi Media cards (MMC) are not recommended and should not be used.

I'm sorry but you can't use the camera as a webcam. Here is why. There is no function on the camera to stream video.
Also, the camera goes into standby mode after 30 seconds (by default). And 3 minutes after that, it shuts off completely. It does that to save batteries. Again. I'm sorry. Good webcams average between $20. to $50. usd and they are made to work 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
You can use a 4GB memory card in your camera, as long as it's an SD card.
If you get that message, it means you haven't formatted the card for use in that camera. You have to format the card in the camera before you use it.
Even though the solution was not what you prpbably wanted, don't let it stop you from rating it a fixya. I would appreciate it. Let me know if I can help you with anything else, and thanks for coming to FixYa.
