The camera displays “This card cannot be used” when first turned on.
This error message that plagued me half the time I turned on my fancy new camera. I knew it was fake because removing and reinserting the card fixed it every time. Searching the internet did little to help me resolve this issue.
Finally, on page 212 of the manual I found an obscure comment about the Eye-Fi cards. It does NOT support endless memory mode. If you have this mode enabled you are likely to see the same problems I was having.
To resolve this issue,
simply disable Endless Memory mode from your computer and everything should be back to normal! Despite my best efforts I ended up sending the card back to EyeFi. They sent me a replacement in no time and everything has worked perfectly since then. Gotta give EyeFi a pat on the back for having great customer service. On the other hand, I’ll probably never buy another Nikon. Their service was terrible. Terrible.
Welcome to “It Can Be Done” the blog. I like to think that anything can be achieved and if we all felt so empowered the world would be a better place for it. Why wait around for the problems and challenges in your life to go away. Take life by the circular saw and build something to benefit yourself. I’ve been doing this privately for some time and I’ve decided to share some of the more interesting and accessible examples here.
Most people assume that the products they purchase come from some mythical repository of products somewhere. In reality they are made by normal people with day jobs. While many of these professionals have specialized skills, you too can learn to do things. While the scale of mass production can be daunting, sites like Etsy.com and Instructable.com suggest that normal people can take control of their needs and provide for themselves and those around them. The purpose of this blog is to highlight some of the ways that I have been able to do that.
Here, in this small corner of the internet, I make no effort to stay on theme or even in the realm of reason. I will, however, make every effort to be informative and helpful. I hope you find something interesting within these pages.
