Nikon Coolpix P100 captures stunning images and saves them in the memory card or in the internal memory of the camera. This camera is compatible with two types of memory cards – SD (Secure Digital) and SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity). Both these cards save different types of digital media files like, audios, videos, and pictures. The file system of these memory cards, like file system of other storage media, are prone to corruption, and do get corrupt at times, owing to some or the other reason. File system corruption, in turn, prompts the user with an error message, after which, a user is unable to access digital files saved in the memory card. To surpass memory card corruption, a user needs to restore data from an updated backup. However, in case of absence of an updated backup or backup file itself getting damaged, you will need to use an effective third-party application to perform memory card recovery.
For further explanation of memory card corruption, consider:
“This card cannot be read.”
“This card cannot be used.”
These error message pop up on the LCD screen of your Nikon Coolpix P100 camera while trying to access the files saved in the memory card. These messages are indication of inaccessibility of the data stored in the memory card. Needless to say, saving any new file is also impossible.
These error messages appear when the memory card is corrupted/damaged. Few common reasons liable for memory card corruption are malicious software like virus, pulling the memory card out when the camera is performing a read/write operation, and improper camera handling.
The only way to overcome corruption and the error messages is by formatting the memory card. While formatting allows you to reuse your memory card by reinstalling a new file system, it also erases all the digital files from the memory card. For systematic recovery of all the lost digital files, a user needs to opt for a third-party memory card recovery software. Such software ensure complete Memory Card Recovery using intensive recovery mechanisms.
