You should only format the card with your camera.
I downloaded a copy of the L1 User's Manual and it discusses formatting on page 46 of the manual.
I don't know if a 2GB memory card will work on the L1.
Camera makers seldom publish such information, because new cards are coming on the market all the time.
You will need to contact Nikon to find out for sure.
Note: If you bought the card on the Internet from a non-trusted source .... be aware that some counterfeit cards are being sold.
HI, i'm new here and i need some help with my card.
My camera is a NIKON L1.
When I first inserted the silicon power 1gb ultima2 card i saw "this card cannot be used". Then i formatted it with FAT32 and still i get the same error. Can someone tell me what i am doing wrong please? and by the way, does the Nikon L1 support a 2GB memory, if yes what FAT should i use to format it?
Pls explain everthing clear and simple as i am new to digital cameras and memory cards.
