Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My nikon coolpix s4000 is really annoying me. every time i try to record a video it says "this card cannot be read". !!!!!!!


Answers :

Your camera can record HD movies, that's a lot of data; the chances are that your camera is complaining that your card is too slow. To check this out, select a lower resolution movie, i.e. 480p instead of 720p and try that. If it works fine, then speed is the problem. The manual should tell you what rating you need, but I'm guessing that it's going to be at least Class 6.

I have a Nikon S3000 digital camera in blue and i recently bought a Sandisk 8 gb card for it and before i had a 4 gb card, as well a Sandisk. My 4 gb card worked fine and recorded videos but my 8 gb card does take pictures but its a bit slow and it will start to record video but after ten seconds or so it will say that this card cannot be read. Any help to what settings i need to change or is this the wrong card? Thank you.


Sandisc makes cards in various speeds or "classes". For videos, it's best to use a class 6 or better card. Sounds like your new 8GB card is a class 4 or lower. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera
