I've just received a 'vintage' Nikon Coolpix E950 digicam (the one with the swivelling body halves!), and have just taken a few test shots with it but when I put its CompactFlash card into my card reader it simply asks me if I want to format the card. I can't connect the camera to my PC as a) I don't have the cable, and b) it's a creaky old serial connection! :lmao: I've tried formatting the memory card in the camera to no avail, and when I click 'yes' to format the card in my PC it starts to format the card but then bombs out with an error. I've tried formatting it in FAT32 and FAT with the same result. I've also tried this with other CF cards from other cameras too. This may be a silly question, but would my card reader be faulty? Is there anything else I can try to transfer pictures to my PC from the CF card or is it time for a new card reader? Edit: It's a multi-card reader, and it reads SD/MS etc. cards fine.
