I cannot find a Coolpix L1 it may be real old
If the camera is OLD 4GB will not work in it. many small cameras do have some memory inside.
You have to get an older SD that is much less memory.

SOURCE: Nikon D40 Memory Card Error

Hello. Make sure the write-protect switch on the SD card is in the UP (nearer to the contacts) position. Try the card in an SDHC capable reader on your computer first. Note that the SD card can only be inserted one way - make sure you're not putting it in upside-down! If the computer recognizes the presence of inserted card (whether it can read it or not), format it at FAT32. When finished, remove properly (icon in system tray) and insert into your D40 slot, WITH THE CAMERA OFF!! Turn on the D40, and if it now recognizes the SD card, FORMAT it again, in the camera. Good luck.

I'm sorry but you can't use the camera as a webcam. Here is why. There is no function on the camera to stream video.
Also, the camera goes into standby mode after 30 seconds (by default). And 3 minutes after that, it shuts off completely. It does that to save batteries. Again. I'm sorry. Good webcams average between $20. to $50. usd and they are made to work 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

You can use a 4GB memory card in your camera, as long as it's an SD card.

If you get that message, it means you haven't formatted the card for use in that camera. You have to format the card in the camera before you use it.

Even though the solution was not what you prpbably wanted, don't let it stop you from rating it a fixya. I would appreciate it. Let me know if I can help you with anything else, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

SOURCE: How to transfer Nikon Coolpix camera pictures to memory card?

Make sure you have an SD memory card inserted and your camera is on. Press the Play button to view your images. Now press menu and scroll down to the copy feature. You have two options, copy from camera to memory card is on top, and from memory card to camera is on the bottom.  Once you select your option, choose your pictures and copy.

Regards,
Lardzor.

After inserting memory card in Nikon coolpix L105 the error 'this card cannot be used' has occured. what is the solution?


The L105 works with SD cards. Make sure you're not using an SDHC card. You need to use SD cards, 2GB and smaller.

Have a nikon coolpix S8100 with a 4gb card. My hp photosmart 7960 reads "error reading card" when trying to upload pictures. I have no problems uploading my old memory card from my cannon A95.


The 7960 works with SD cards. It does not work with SDHC cards such as your 4GB card.

SD cards max out at 2GB. While SDHC cards are physically identical, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them.

The L4 and its software will work with any size SD cards. Make sure you get SD cards, not SDHC cards. SD cards go up to 2GB, while SDHC cards start at 4GB and go up.

Why my 4GB SDcard can not work at my NIKON coolpix 5900


There are no 4GB SD cards. "SD" cards larger than about 1GB are actually SDHC cards. SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but they are slightly different electrically. Many cameras won't work with SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.

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


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.

What kind of memory card will i use in this camera. Are all memory cards have a standard size.


You may use any SD or SDHC card. All SD and SDHC cards are the same size physically. Electronically, SD cards range up to 2GB while SDHC cards range from 4GB to 32GB. Any of them will work in the L110.

Nikon Coolpix 5900/4 GB Kingston SD Card


The 5900 uses SD cards. The 4GB card you have is actually an SDHC card and will not work in the 5900. You'll have to stay with cards 2GB and smaller.

Will my Coolpix 5600 use SDHC SanDisk cards?


Sorry to say, but . . . No!

Cnet Reviews shows the specifications on your camera.
2167fde.jpg It only goes so far as SD memory, which is limited to 2GB.
It's a hurdle technology manufacturers had to jump, and now consumers must jump also.

PURCHASE THE PNY 4GB MEMORY CARD


I have the same problem with the card, my cannon camera, and my gateway laptop. From what I've learned in the past ten minutes, the card is SDHC and my devices are not. The card is not able to dumb down and I am returning it to Best Buy. The HC in SDHC is the issue from my best guess. Similar to you cannot play PS3 games on PS2. I hope this helps anyone else.
