The camera cannot recognize the card because IT HAS BEEN FORMATTED IN THE COMPUTER! Camera cards must be formatted in the camera.

How do I get the SDGC 8GB memory card to work for my Nikon s4100 coolpix camera?


You may need to format the card prior to first use. This should be in the menu system somewhere. Your manual should point you in the right direction.

Computer won't recognize d3100


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

Accidentally earsed the memory card, can i find them somehow?


If you haven't done anything to the card since you formatted it, then you have a chance. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.

I have a new D3100. I took pictures, then stuck the memory care in my hpC3150 card reader and the orange exclamation point lit up on the hp. I put the memory card back in the Nikon and it said, Memory...


I believe that the memory card was not formatted to the camera before using so, the pictures were corrupted and unable to read in either the computer or back in the camera. What you need to do is make sure the memory card is unlocked here is a diagram

Make sure the card is unlocked then you need to format the card.

My phone will not recognize my micro sd chip. i have already formatted the chip but it stil does not read it. can yo help


If you are using a Micro SD card, you are using the wrong one. Unfortunately, Sony has a vested interest in promoting their own proprietary formats, (anyone remember BetaMax?), and the TM506 is no exception. This phone uses a Sony Memory Stick Micro (M2). You may obtain these in most camera, computer and electronic stores that sell Sony products. SanDisk also makes the M2 cards. Not sure if other memory card makers do as well.

Formatting troubles for a 8gb Sandisk Micro SDHC


Hi Tony,

Have your My Computer window open and re-insert the card into the reader. If it doesn't show immediately, then right click and choose refresh. It should show up then.

Screen displaying "out of memory"


OK, FIRST OFF THE CARD YOU BOUGHT, IS IT COMPATIBLE WITH YOUR CAMERA? IT'S NOT AN SDHC, IS IT? ALSO, DID YOU FORMAT THE CARD? THESE ARE POSSIBLE REASONS YOUR CAMERA IS NOT RECOGNIZING THE 8GB MEMORY. IF YOU FORMATTED IT ON YOUR COMPUTER IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK IN YOUR CAMERA. YOU NEED TO FORMAT IT IN YOUR CAMERA TO HAVE IT BE RECOGNIZED. DOES YOUR CAMERA WORK WITH THE OLD CARD AND NOT SHOW THE ERROR? ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE YOUR CAMERA SET TO USE THE SD CARD AND NOT INTERNAL MEMORY? CHECK THROUGH YOUR MENU ITEMS FOR CHOICES. TRY THESE FIRST AND IF YOU STILL NEED HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217. IF THIS IS HELPFUL, PLEASE RATE, THANKS!
