Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. 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.

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

Hi I have 8gb Transcent Micro Sd Card that is encounted a problem when i m downloading using 5130. After that its not opening Its Says that not Formatted. when i insert in to my pc only showed my card...

If there are hidden partitions on the memory card, Windows 7 will not allow you to change the partition. So to format use a PC with windows XP or older. You also could format this card in most camera's. For that place the card in a SD adapter and put it in your camera. Let the camera do the format.
When you put the card back in the phone, make sure you first format the card with the phone software. Just to be sure the phone can read and write the card.

Camera wont read the disk

Coolpix cameras do not have a disk; they use an SC memory card. When you put a new SC card in the camera, you must format it before you use it. Go into your camera's Menu. Under Setup, you will find "Format memory card". Once your SC card is formatted it should work.

Hi,
You need to format the card.
Insert the memory card into the system and this will be displayed as the mass storage device in my computer. Right click over the removable disk and then click format. It will format the memory card.
Then insert the memory card into the camera. Now the camera will not show the error message.

Hope this helps.

How do I format the memory card?

You can format your memory card in one of two ways 1. the camera menus usually have a functionality to format memory cards. Explore the camera menu a bit and you will find it. 2.You can insert the memory card in the card reader of your laptop or USB card readers sold separately.

Make sure you don't have any pics on the internal memory. To be sure, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. Then, insert the card and go into the menu and do the format thing again to erase the card and optimize it. Use the menu and not the format option the camera has been giving you.

My camera doesn`t read memory card.I tried with 2

On most cameras, once you start to use the internal memory, the camera doesn't want to read a memory card. You need to go into the menu and "reset" the camera. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and "format" the internal memory. Then, insert the card and "format" it. This will erase it so download any pics first.
