"Image will not write to card"


Los Angeles, US
          

A friend email to me about this person who has trouble with his D5000. Apparently, the camera will not write to the sd card. It stopped at 24 images. I gave him the obvious solutions of using a different card, reformatting, etc. Could this be a buffer problem. Not sure if he is shooting raw or jpeg, but most likely jpegs. Any idea. We can only communicate via email. Thx

Is the write-protect switch turned on on the card? Seems unlikely if 24 images were written and then it stopped, but maybe the switch was almost turned to write protect and slipped all the way. It's easy to check, so the first thing I'd look at is whether the card's write protect switch is on.

Thanks, I will send him your suggestions. If this does not work, I'm wondering whether the firmware may be the problem. I checked Nikon's website and there are no available firmware to download.

I also suggest that he reset his camera, according to pg 217 of the owner's manual.
