Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S51c Digital Camera ?

This card cannot be used - Nikon Coolpix S51c Digital Camera


Answers :

I have no idea which card you are referring to, but I am assuming it is NOT a SD or SDHC card for those are the only formats that the Nikon S51C will accept.

If you do have the aforementioned, it may be locked or need formatting.

  1. If it is locked look for a little switch on the card and slide it to the other direction.
  2. \015\012
  3. If it needs formatting, it can be done from a computer equipped with a card reader.
I hope this helps and good luck!
