hi, my partner recieved a new nikon coolpic s3200 with 2 8gb SD cards

i set up the camera about a week and a half ago and everything was working fine she recieved it today and took afew pictures

when we got home the card wasnt working i cant remember what the camera said

we too the sd card out, reset the camera and turned it on and off a few times

i decided to put the card into the laptop (windows 7 64 bit) and it said this

E:\ is not accessible. The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted." any sugestions?

Send it back. New Camera, with SD cards failing to work is not worth messing about with.

I think your laptop card reader needs a new driver to be able to correctly read SDHC cards. Do a google for W7 SDHC

lotvic , with respect, the card reader will be compatible with the HC card. Possibly connect the camera, with cards still inserted, to the PC via USB and see if you get the same message. If one of the SDHC cards are duff, you said two cards supplied with camera, then they will sort it out for you.

hi guys,

the card reader in the camera is working fine as i have tried the second SD card so its not the camera

every time i turn the camera on it will go to a screen and say "camera is not formatted format card now? if i do this it says all images will be deleted

if i have the camera plugged into the computer it will say card unavailable

is there any way of recieving the images and how do i know what card reader it is in the laptop
