Question about Nikon D100 Digital Camera

Loss of photos on Nikon D100

I've lost a photo shoot twice. Photos appear during shoot, but later when I go to transfer them they are corrupted or disappear. This has happened with two different Promaster memory cards. I don't know how many shots are on the flash card, but it only shows 10 and nine are X'd out in red. Only the first picture is OK. Is there any way I can retrieve what is (or was) on the flashcard.

    I took your advice and went to a photo shop that could retrieve my photos. It cost $60, but I was grateful. I also left the camera to be sent for repair. Thanks. Clarke Davis

Hi, It happened to me once. But not this serious.
This normally happens due to any inteference with static charges emitted by some electronic equipments.
I believe you are shooting in Nikon RAW format.
This is how I managed to retrieve some pics. (may not work always but worth a try).
Open the raw picture in PictureProject. Even when the file is corrupt, it sometimes shows proper picture. 
If you save/ export to JPG it might look corrupt. In such case, the option I could think of is zoom into the pic (in pictureproject) take screen shots and finally stich them altogether to get a big picture (hence better resolution).

To avoid loss, keep the memory cards and camera away from gadgets with strong electromagnetic radiation.

If the problem persists, try a firmware update before taking it to the repair shop.
Hope it works,
Thanks for using FixYa.

Transferred photos


If you have not done so, go to the Nikon website at www.nikon.com and download the free Nikon transfer software. Install it on your computer. Once you do, you will be able to transfer both raw and jpg photos from your camera. If you are shooting all raw photos, Windows will not recognize nef file extensions without adding the proper codecs. The Nikon software lets you do this.

FOR error message when inserting a memory card with photos


You should try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your digital memory card, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Photos being transferred to computer lost connection during transfer. Now no photos show in the queue


A good reason to use the 'copy' function whle transferring. Doing this will preserve the pix in the camera memory until you are sure they actually arrived on your computer.
If you have a card drive, you might pull your memory card and plug it in directly to see what might remain there. It may come up as only a 'removable drive' that you can address as if it was any other.

Nikon D100: suddenly all the pictures are black


Ellen,
When shooting with the D100 do you have the dial on top of camera set to 'Auto'? If so, then most likely you have some how adjusted to the exposure compensation, so your photos are underexposing.
To reset your camera to the factory default settings:
Hold down the bracket and flash button for two
seconds.
These are the buttons marked with a green dot
Take a test photo and see if that works.

Corrupt images created by Exilim EX-Z1050


We discovered that the photos weren't corrupt on the camera, but were being corrupted when transferred to Picassa, during the transfer process. We transferred some test photos using a simple file copy operation and it worked out fine.

Empty Card


It appears that you have accidently formatted your card, this is one reason we should download all of our pictures after every session. I have done this twice, but of course my lost pictures weren't nearly important as yours but a loss is a loss, and I now transfer all my pictures to the computer after each photo session. Sorry about that!
