D70s image file does not exist, HELP

I was taking pictures for my kids school program,
Every time I took a pic it showed up on the lcd monitor on the back
At home I downloaded my pics and oh surprise!
from 1917 thru 2033 pics are gone and for 2033 thru 2235 are OK,
SanDisk card was inserted again and find out a message

I read card again using Mycomputer and get the following information
For several pictures

DsC_1535 525,342KB JPEG Image, Date modified,
Date picture taken and dimensions data does not show.
)note: file name has where I wrote_ a square character, or corchea one

Does the above mean that I lost all pictures?
If not, how could I recover them?

    Let me tell's a downhill slope from there. I had the same problem and it only gets worse. The pictures you take, the more pics on the card it will mess up. I have NEVER been able to recover any of my pictures. What I did to test if it was the card, the camera, or my pc, is buy a new card and format it inside the CAMERA BEFORE taking any new pictures. Then it was fine, as soon as I uploaded the pics to the pc they were all there as I was able to save them on my pc. The next time around, it went right back to the same old behavior deleting everything!! I learned two things the hard way. NEVER format your memory card through the pc when it asks, it messes up the settings from the card, to your camera so it causes the camera to write the pictures to the card poorly and incomplete! The other cause..check your pc if it has ANY spyware,adware, and especially a virus!!! I learned while I was uploading pics, the infection that your pc may have without you knowing, contaminates your memory card, then you're pulling it out and placing it in your camera!!! In my case, that has happened and has now corrupted the actual main programming in my camera that Nikon has set at factory settings when manufactured. Now, I'm having to send it out to Nikon to get "Re-programmed"!! =(

How to activate date/time stamp on nikon d90

The D90 won't deface your photos by scrawling a string of numbers across them. However, the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every image in what's called the EXIF data. Just about any photo printing program will allow you to include some of this data when printing the photo. Depending on the program and printer, you can print this data on the picture, in the margins, or on the back.

D70s I shoot raw. Thumbnail picture on LCD is ok. when downloaded to computer have picture is perfect other half out of focus and look like ribbon or rainbow?

When you are using the raw format, you are also taking a jpeg basic photo. The camera display on;y show the jpeg. Most windows programs only show jpg also. In order to view the raw files, you must use s/w capable, such as Photoshop or the s/w that came with the Nikon (Picture View, I think/ Compare both jpg and raw files. If they both exhibit the same anomoly, than more than likely you have a dirty or bad CCD sensor.

On my Nikon D70s, when I take a picture and see the image previewed briefly on the back LCD, the highlights flash negative image tones(black) in about 1/2 second intervals. This same effect is also present...

There is nothing wrong with your camera. What you are seeing are the blown-out highlights. Those are the portions of your image that have been overexposed so completely that they have lost all detail and will show up as pure white. In most cases the proper fix is to reduce exposure to bring back the detail.

If you simply don't want to see the "blinkies", press up/down on the multiselector repeatedly to cycle through the different views of your images.

Hi how can i view pictures on my computer taking with my webcam?

if you took the pictures through the windows webcam and picture drivers then your pictures should be in your "my documents, my pictures folder", if you took the pics through a third party program, then those pics will be in whatever folder that software has listed for saving the pics in its preferences. Once you find them, double click on them if they are of a normal format and windows will display them. If they are in a unusual format ( like a logitech file format) then you may only be able to view them through logitechs own software. There are a number of free and very good software programs which will allow you to change one type of file into another type of file, go to : and search for image manipulation software.

Took pictures with Panasonic DMX-FZ50 using a Lexar SD 2GB memory card. I put card into card reader in my computer to upload. It shows a JPEG thumbnail with a file # and if you place the cursor over it, it...

Firstly, whenever you put the media card into a card reader, ALWAYS turn write-protect on, to protect the images already on the card.
Secondly, AFAIK, the only way that your computer could have 'wiped' the card is if you told it to Move the images, rather than just Copy them. Again, setting write-protect would have solved this.

D70s lcd screen is black

The D70S is a SLR (single lens reflex). You cannot use the LCD for taking pictures like the small compact digital cameras. There is no way for the CCD sensor to have any image prior to taking since it is behind the mirror and the shutter is closed.

No images

Look in Explorer at the .jpg files on your card to make sure they have information in each file. Next, make sure your software is set to view .jpg files,i.e. Faststone Image viewer ( can be set for virtually any image format. If you viewed the images on the lcd monitor they were on the card at that time. Make sure you haven't somehow protected those image files or have accidentally reformatted it.
