I have a brand new kingston 516mb cf card. I tried to put it in my nikon coolpix 2500 this morning and I got the message 'you cannot use this card' I already use a sandisk 64mb card that works fine.what could be the problem?

My first thought is that maybe it is formatted wrong.

Put it in a reader on your pc and right click on the drive and get it's properties. Make sure it is formatted as fat16 (not fat32 or NTFS).

You can also get the type of formatting with a chkdsk command (in a command prompt).
