Question about Nikon Coolpix L11 Digital Camera

How do I delete all pictures at once

I used to get the option to delete all pictures and now I just get the option to delete one. When I try to delete the whole card on my computer it tells me that some other person or program is using the file and won't let me delete. It takes forever to delete one at a time. I looked in my manual but could not find an answer

Use the "Format" command in the Setup menu. This erases everything on the card and prepares it for further use. This should be done each time you finish download your pictures.

Looks like it time has come to be retired. I fear the a repair option is not a likely route. Lack of parts, shipping costs to a repairer, inspection fees only to find it cannot be repaired. will all mount to a fair chunk of the price of its replacement By all means explain this the Nikon Technical Support Team There may be a simple answer - but I fear not to this one.

SOURCE: I accidentally deleted all the pictures files from

Photos can be successfully retrieved from a memory card - however there is a catch. When you delete a photo, you really just tell the camera/computer to act like it isn't there. The actual bits in memory aren't changed to delete it (there is software you can get to actually delete them, but its usually completely unnecessary).
To get back your lost picture files try to use flash file recovery software. http://www.panterasoft.com/file-recovery/index.html

I need to know how to delete video n pictures from my tablet excite10 i have tryed everything


The Excite 10 Series Tablet, as with all Toshiba Tablets, comes with the Toshiba File Manager. This utility allows you to move/copy files from one part of the system to the other, or in this case, from the main storage (or gallery) to the SD card.
Once moved the files, then a delete option should now appear, if not put the sd into a laptop/pc and delete using windows/Mac,

that's all i can think of as a solution for now, if this does'nt work please message ,me and i'll check out other options

all the best

I am trying to delete a photo from my album but I don't know how?


Deleting pictures from album are quite simple. Simply locate the file manager on your unit. Once you locate this find where the particular image is saved often depends on how the picture got to your device in the first place pictures captured by the device camera it shoud be under camera pictures or DCIM but if received via bluetooth or downloaded from the internet should be under images.
Once the file is located select options and delete.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

To delete pictures from your mp3 you can delete that by view it and there is option there you can chose to delete. There is another way to delete pictures, plug your mp3 to your computer.

Deleting images


Generally your camera will have a main menu, which lists this as an option.

Look for a menu button on your digital camera. While the camera is on, press this button, and cycle through the options that appear, watching for a listing which says something like "Erase all".

Usually there will be another button or set of buttons that have arrows on them, and let you move up and down among the listed options. Press the up or down button (or the right/left button, whichever applies to your camera), until the "Erase all" option is highlighted.

There should also be a button on your camera that says something like "Ok" or "Function Set"; no matter what it's called, the important thing is that it is NOT one of the buttons which either opens the menu listings (the one I'm describing as the "menu" button, regardless of what your camera calls it), or moves between menu items (the up/down/left/right buttons). Once you have found the menu item for "Erase all", and have highlighted it, press this button.

You will probably get a message asking you to verify your choice, since once the photos are deleted from your camera, you won't be able to retrieve them, so most cameras will ask you to confirm any erasing you do, whether it's just one picture, or all the pictures in your camera's memory/storage. You confirm the deletion by pressing the same button that you used to start the deletion process.

So, to recap:

1) Turn the camera on.
2) Find and press the "Menu" button.
3) Find and press the arrow/next button until you see a menu item saying something like "Erase all".
4) Find and press the "OK" button -- or whatever button will get the camera to accept the menu item selection you've made.
5) If the camera asks you to confirm your choice, use the arrow/direction keys to highlight the "Yes" or "OK" option in the confirmation window.
6) Press the same button you used to start the process ("OK" or "Function Set"), one more time to confirm your choice.
7) The camera should now delete all of the photos in its memory.

WARNING: DO NOT DELETE YOUR PHOTOS UNTIL YOU'VE DOWNLOADED THEM, UNLESS YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT YOU'LL NEVER WANT THEM. It is always better to have an extra backup of your pictures than to permanently lose something you can't replace.

If anyone else has used the camera, it's best to check with them to make sure that they've downloaded their pictures off of the camera, before doing a full delete of all pictures on the camera.

Most cameras will also let you individually delete pictures that came out badly, or where you accidentally took a picture you didn't mean to take. If you're not sure what else is in the camera's memory, it's always wisest to use this method, instead of deleting all the pictures at once.
