I have a 5100 that required a firmware upgrade to accept a 16GB SD card I had (major brand)........you may want to contact Nikon support.Also conventional wisdom is to have multiple smaller cards (4-8GB)to provide insurance that if a card has issues on a trip, you have sufficient options to complete the trip.Also if you are shooting video at high resolution, you should invest in class "10" cards for the additional bandwidth/transfer speed.They can also benefit those shooting RAW/jpg on each shot.
