Honestly: just throw it in the trash. You might want to tear it apart just to see whats inside.- it's that old. Please don't waste your time on it.

SOURCE: New SanDisk 4GB CF Card - Coolpix displays out of memory

This is because the Coolpix 2100 and 31000 models cannot handle a card of that large a capacity. As it's only a 2MP camera anyway it doesn't need it.

The Coolpix 2100/3100 will usually accept up to a 512MB CF card, and 1GB Lexar CF cards up to and including the 24x WA write accelerated (although write acceleration itself offers no benefits on this camera). With Sandisk only a plain old and now obsolete SDFB allows a 1GB card to be used and the regular Sandisk Ultra (not Ultra II or later) will only work up to 512MB.

The camera was discontinued long before these much larger CF cards were released and Nikon no longer actively support the product so no firmware updates will be available. The hardware wouldn't support such cards anyway.

Compatibility chart for CF cards address below:-

SOURCE: Nikon coolpix 2100- out of memory- After installing 4gb CF card

4GB requires FAT32. Camera firmware only supports FAT16. 4GB won't work because FAT16 has a 2GB maximum size limitation. 1GB CF card is Nikon's "approved" maximum for this camera.

Catch: 22 1GB -and lesser capacity- CF cards are no longer manufacturered or generally available in 2010. When the current CF card dies, the still working camera also becomes throwaway unless you can source a CF card 1GB or under. 2GB may work, but with 'issues' per caution below.

CAUTION: Anecdotal evidence suggests the final release -& current- firmware for cameras of this generation is also encumbered by with a maximum picture number limitation of 999, realistic at the time of original manufacture when 256MB was a the largest capacity CF card but completely nonsensical now.

Summary: This is my first NIkon Digital camera and also my last.

Apart from the noteriety of the ubiquitous broken Nikon plastic battery latch, a major design flaw Nikon refuse to acknowledge or accept liability to rectify -since self-repaired better than OEM, Nikon policy on firmware support is complete abandonment of product within an unacceptably short service window. ie: a deliberate poilicy of enforced obsolescence.

Suggested Problem Remedy: Do buy a new camera supporting SD Cards of current capacities. Don't buy anything branded Nikon.

SOURCE: I wish to use 1Gb

Sorry to say but this camera can only support a maximum 512 MB of memory card so the 1GB size will not be read by this unit.

My Nikon Coolpix S3100 won't turn on


I had the same problem, and many other people have had this issue. The camera sat for too long, and the battery fully discharged. It needs to be reset. In order to do that, remove the battery and memory card. Replace only the battery, and plug it in. You should see a green light flashing to the right of the LCD screen. That means it is now charging. Replace your memory card, and let it charge before trying to use it.

I just bought the JVC Everio GZ-MG330 and when I playback the video there is barely any sound even when I set the volume to the highest possible number. Does this mean the camara is no working properly.


Try resetting the unit:

To reset the camera
1) Close the LCD monitor to turn off the
camera and remove the power supply
(battery pack or AC adapter) from the
camera, then reattach it.
2) Select [FACTORY PRESET] from the
MENU.

If still no sound replace it...

Hope that helps........

Is the small switch on the side of the SD card pushed up toward contacts? Has the card been formatted by a PC(A NO-NO)?
Remove card;turn camera on..go to setup; press up arrow once to get "DELETE ALL IMAGES NO?";press select button to get flashing "NO"; press up or down button once to change flashing NO to flashing YES; press select once...should get "DONE";press select until back in "SETUP...Turn camera off insert SD card and try again...may need new SD card.
