    Can't take any photos. My wife's camera "says" that memory card is full no matter what SD card we insert. I am sure it is "stuck" in a logic loop that I can not figure how to reset. I ordered a new camera online for her since she needs it for work as a Pre-school teacher. Does not look like it will get here until Dec. 28 - to 30th. I'm too cheap to pay for expedited shipping. Love the free shipping.

    Maybe Santa will bring the Moose his own camera? Don't know if I am still on the naughty list. I really wish that Santa brings all the forum members here new cameras so they can start posting some croton bling photos! ;)

    Ron - open the camera's menu and there will be a selection somewhere that says to Format. You'll lose every photo, hope you copied them all to your computer, but you'll save the camera.

    Ricky - could I do that with a blank SD card? I think it is a camera hardware issue? :confused:

    Ricky is right. Your card needs to be formatted per the menu. You must format SD cards every now & then to "clear" it of old data.

    Agree, clear your old data. No need to buy a new one.

    So are you saying my data is locked up on the SD card. Seems odd that both cards happened at the same time. Can I put the SD card in my computer to down load the pics or are they locked-up? Got alot more croton photos waiting for the Fall Amazing Croton thread. I bought a brand new SD card yesterday - I gonna check if if that will work in the camera. :eek:

    Heck yah I want a new one! I've been using my wife's and she grudgingly allows me too. My son hides his Nikon from me. His new camera has so much bling on it, I really don't want to spend the hours how to operate it. I need an auto focus point and shoot model.

    Hopefully my wife's camera is fine and I can claim the Nikon Coolpix replacement that is on its way. Got it for the wife - its purple :eek:

    It's not waterproof, but it sure is better than what I used to have. I have a Nikon D3100. And I do apoligize for not being a team player. Alot of crotons to take pictures of but I just can't seem to find the time to do it. I would certainly welcome any of you to come over and spend some time walking and talking, and maybe a few pic's while your at it.

    Jeff - that is a real nice camera. My son James got the D3100 about 7 months ago. He is very pleased with it. He keeps it hidden from me so I won't touch it. :(

    One great feature is that it is too large to put in a pocket and get forgotten when entering water. :rolleyes:
