First of all this is a FYI for Coolpix 7900 owners, not sure if other models of the camera have the same problem. But wanted to offer this up if anyone else has this problem.

I just bought a Nikon Coolpix 7900, love it by the way, and had some problems with 3 SD cards I had. All were sandisk and 128mb, 256mb and 512mb in size. None of them would work in the camera and when I went into setup it would "skip" over the format option.

After trying to format in windows xp, using the FAT format, I checked around and found the following utilty in the memory card section of this forum (link is below). It was a utility for formatting SD cards (only SD cards). I put the card in my SanDisk Cruzer and ran the utility, it worked! All the cards were able to be formatted by the camera and I was able to take pictures.

When I tried the utility with my SanDisk 8 in 1 media reader it didn't work.

Also the 512mb card took a while to be formatted by the camera, it isn't locked up, just formatting it....(normal format, not the quick format option).
