Memory card won't format - Nikon Coolpix 2200 Digital Camera


Answers :

You don't state which card you're having problems with, but a common cause is the use of a memory card which has too large a capacity for the camera.

Your camera accepts SD cards up to a maximum 2GB capacity. It will not cope with larger capacities and will produce error messages or fail to format the card. The most common cause of the problem is using the later specification SDHC cards in older devices which pre-date the use of SDHC cards.

If you are using the wrong capacity/type of card then you have just two fixes: either use an SD card with a maximum 2GB capacity or replace your camera for a later model which is SDHC compliant. Note that later devices can still use SD cards as well.

My Nikon D70S digital SLR camera recently has issues with memory cards. Even for cards that worked perfect in the past and that I re-formatted prior to the current use, it sometimes stops identifying the card (after I already took many pictures with no problem), and I have to eject and re-insert the card in order for it to work properly.
