Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix 3100 Digital Camera ?

Bought a new memory card for my nikon coolpix 3100 card wont work

\015 It formatted the card okay, its a Compact Flash 4gb. But then it just says out of memory on my screen. Im wondering if the 4gb is too big for the camera and is there anything I can do about this?\015

Answers :

It is too big. 1G is max for the 3100.
I got a similar probelm, did an upgrade from 1.2 to 1.3, didn't sort the problem. I also search for a hack - no such luck :(

\015\012The only answer is to go and buy a smaller card.

Nikon COOLPIX S710 stops working after battery and/or memory card are removed. I have reformed the memory card (no change). Purchased 2X new batteries (no change). One of the original batteries will allow the camera to work, directly after a fresh charge, but not after it is removed, unless directly after insertion from being freshly charged.

I have a 256MB compactflash memory card for the coolpix 4300 that was bought over 7 years ago. I went to Radio Shack and Walmart looking for another. The salesperson told me that the SandDisk 8GB compactflash memory card would work. I tried it and it doesn't. The screen on the camera reads do you want to format the card. I selected yes, but it doesn't work. Is there anyway I could make the card work. It's the same size and look as the 256MB card.
