Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX P3 Digital Camera ?

My Nikon Coolpix P3 camera is not accepting my 4GB, SDHC San disk card?


Answers :

The P3 works with SD cards, not SDHC cards. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and won't work. You need to go with SD cards, 2GB and smaller.
