Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

Nikon D80 Memory Card Not Not Reading.

\015 I insert my memory card that I have been using fine for the past 6 months. But today, I try to insert the card into the camera slot and display says "No Card Present" when there is indeed a card in there. I think the problem is that the card is not actually being pressed all the way into the memory card holder, because when I manually press the card down, the display tells me I have so many photos left available. Any ideas as to what is the problem?\015

Answers :

I would try another card first, before doing anything else.  If you have been using just one card for 6 months and using it a lot, it could be corrupted.   It's best to always have a back up of at least one card anyway, and they have come down in price considerably.\015\012
\015\012If my suggestion and McComijohns's don't work, I would consider taking the camera in for repair.   It is NOT a good idea to mess around too much with the inner workings of the camera.  You could cause a lot of damage and it won't be covered under your warranty.  Good luck.\015\012

I have a Nikon E5400, ver 1.3. I bought a 4GB Kingston CF card; the package said "formatted and ready to use". On inserting into camera, the message flashed that the card is not formatted. So I proceeded to format. The next message that flashes is "Out of Memory". Questions: 1) is the CF card defective? 2) is E5400 incapable of reading a 4GB CF card, should we use only CF cards <1GB? 3) Will a firmware version upgrade to v1.4 help? 4) Any other reason why this could happen?
