Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon memory card all of the sudden downgraded from 1G to hardly anything at all!?!

Just recently I noticed that my camera only will take ~1min 20 secs of video footage when before it would take clear up to an hour of footage being as though it is a 1G memory card. I can't figure anything in settings is off but I'm not too sure, I don't think I have the booklet or initial software either. Hopefully you can point me in the right direction!

There are a couple of different things that could help this situation.

First, try deleting photos and videos and other files that might be occupying space on the card.

Secondly, look at the quality (in Movie mode, hit menu and select the quality button). Change it up and down, see what happens.

Thirdly, if you still have the problem, go back to your computer, right click on the card, and see how much space total, and how much free space it shows. If it shows most of the card is free, try taking the movie again. If that doesn't work, try a different card or use the same card in a different camera.

Good luck!

Computer cant find USB drivers for Nikon d3000

Forget about drivers for your computer. Buy an inexpensive (under $20) USB SD flash memory card reader and connect it to your USB port. Remove the SD memory card from your camera and insert it in the card reader. Open Finder if you have a Mac or My Computer for a PC. You will see your memory displayed just as if it were an external hard drive. Open the files on the SD card and copy them to a file on your hard drive. It is that simple. Professionals use this method. We almost never download directly from the camera.

I'm suddenly unable to download from my Nikon L22 Coolpix have had no trouble in the past

You didn't say if you are leaving the memory card in your camera and connecting it to the computer with a USB cable or if you remove the card from the camera and use a card reader. Eaither way should work, but if one dosn't, the other should. In either case, consider that from your computer's perspective, the memory card in your camera is no different then an external hard drive. You can access the folders on the memory card in exactly the same way you access any other folder on your computer (Mac or PC). Just copy and paste your pictures from the folder on the camera's memory to a new folder with an appropriate name on your computer. You do not need Nikon's or any other third-party software to do this.

S4100 Coolpix. memory messages when reviewing photos on SDHC

No, your camera cannot use SDHC cards. It's only a 4 megapixel camera so a 2GB SD card will hold hundreds of pics.

All of a sudden, my MacBook says "cannot recognize format" of some of my Nikon Coolpix L18 pix and won't download my last 10 pix, nor any more that I take. It downloaded the previous 20 pix...

Sounds like the memory card in the camera has gone bad, or the camera has glitched. Try replacing the card. If it still does it, the cam has issues.

What is the correct size memory card for a E 5400 nikon

The 5400 takes Type I and Type II Compact Flash (CF) cards and Microdrive cards.

There is a chart in the "First Steps" section of the manual listing approved cards. None of them are larger than 1G.

Memory Card cannot be used

A 2gb card won't harm your camera. Worst case scenario is that it just won't work. If you try the 2gb card, take several pictures with it. The camera may reject the card right away, or it may take a few shots for it to happen. Don't bother trying a 4gb card, however, it will not work.

Digital Nikon D70S - memory card removed while turned on.

Hi - You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

Nikon > D70

See page 200:


Try resetting the camera in this way first to see if it clears the problem.

The -E- means that the camera cannot detect that a memory card is present see page 199.

Check that the card is properly inserted (page 20) and as a last resort try formatting it (you will lose any pictures on it):
