When you put the card back in try to format the card from the camera menu. Also try turning off the camera then turn it back on with the card inside.

I hope this has answered your question sufficiently. If you have more questions please post a reply. Thanks.

I took some picture on my Nikon D50 without the sdcard, and they are stored on the camera's internal memory, and I have looked through the menu and through the manual, but cannot find a way to transfer...


The pictures are NOT stored in the internal memory, because the camera doesn't have any. Any pictures you take without a memory card can be reviewed on the screen, just to check that the camera is working, but are not stored and disappear when you take the next picture or turn the camera off. Sorry, but those pictures are gone.

I know that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

The camera will not snap a picture. I have charged the batteries, so I know that is not it and It has a CHA in the lower right corner of the control panel.


I had the same exact problem. I did some research on this issue. Apparently The D50 will not work with a memory card above 2gb. I swapped my 4gb to the 2gb and solved the issue. Good luck.

I took alot of pictures recently..seemed to be working fine and they didn't download to my memory card...are they in my D5o Nikon somewhere..


Sorry, no. The camera is entirely reliant on the memory card to store images.

Either the camera or the memory card is faulty. Try another known good memory card to work out out which item is at fault. If it's the camera then it needs professional repairs, if it's the memory card then buy another.

Never, ever, format your memory card in a computer or external card reader, reformatting should only ever be done in-camera with a fully-charged battery.

Do you mean the camera can't works well with your new Nikon D50 battery? But how about your original battery. Maybe your new battery is not so compatible with your camera so the camera can't recognizes the whole information on the Nikon D50 battery chips.

Make sure the battery is fully charged. If it isn't then charge it up and hopefully your problem is solved. If it is fully charged take it out of the camera for a minute or so then put it back in. Try turning the camera on.

Hi,

Make sure you insert memory card correctly, when it is fitted into the memory card terminal it give clicking sound. Second thing you can check battery, Direction of your battery might be wrong (+,_), Check out and put it again. Load new or fully charged battery. Clean your battery terminal with soft cloth. (Might be it will filled with dirt or dust )

Else your camera need to be repaired.

Thanks...!!
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

I took a few pictures with out my sd card in my Nikon D50, how do I get those pictures off my camera?


do you have a usb cable to connect your camera to your pc?
Then generally by pressing the power button once the usb cable is connect, your pc will recognise your camera and then follow the onscreen instruction.
