Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera ?

Nikon D50 CHA error


\015 The camera randomly fails to recognize the memory card. I have had it in for diagnosis & repair (camera 2+ years old). The tech said it was a problem with communication between the circuit board and the card reader. Unfortunately, the "fix" didn't fix anything. I've tried different cards without success.This sounds curiously like the D70 problems but I'm not having success finding a significant number of other people with the same problem. Since I'm taking the camera in for round #2 of repairs (under shop warranty) what is your opinion of the problem?\015

Answers :

The issue is that the firmware on the d50 only recognizes FAT16. Now the problem with FAT16 is that it has a limit of 2GB. So, if you have a 4GB card, you are just SOL. There isnt anything wrong physically with the camera. Buy a smaller card.
I checked the cards, noted that they were “locked” by a sliding switch,\015\012switched them to unlocked, and tried one in the camera: it worked! A\015\012rather simple solution, it turned out.
