Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera ?

It won't read my 8 gb sdhc card even after formatting


Answers :

SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

You don't need a card this big anyway. If you really take a lot of pictures, carry a couple of spare 1GB cards. Your camera won't choke on those and you will have lots of space for photos.
