Nikon 950 and Compact flash card error

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by me in new york, Dec 22, 2003.

  1. I have a Nikon 950 and was using a 32 meg Sandisk card for over 2 years. I
    bought a 256 meg card and have used ir for the last 6 months. Yesterday i
    put in the old 32 meg card and got an error message "This card cannot be
    used". I could not format the card because the menu jumped over the format
    option in the camera menu.

    I formatted the card using my computer, put it back in the camera,
    reformatted it and it worked fine. Later i went to look at the pictures
    using the camera and got the card error again. I put the card back in my
    card reader attched to my computer and all the pictures were there and i
    transfered them to my hard drive without any problems.

    I reformatted the card using the computer again, put it back in the camera,
    reformatted it with the camera and it appears to now work.

    Anyone have any ideas. My 256 meg chip works fine,
