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.

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).

I need to delete a number of pictures at once off my SD card and would like to do it via my computer but can't find out how. Failing that how do I delete a number of pictures from the SD card period. I...


First you will need to attach the USB cord to your camera and then attach the other end to your PC. Once you have attached both ends, you will either have a program that automatically loads up when the camera is detected by the PC or you will have an option menu of which to open up.

I personally find using Windows Explorer a better way. To do so, do the following (this is assuming you are running on XP)

Start
Programs
Accessories
Choose Windows Explorer
When that opens click the + on My Computer
Look for Removable Disk (F:) ( NOTE: F can be any letter depending on your system set up)
Click on Removable Disk and choose DCIM
Then choose ###_PANA (it may be named something else)
All your pictures should be here

Now, to delete them you can

A: Delete them all by choosing one picture and then hold down the CTRL key and press A. This will highlight them all. Then hit your DELETE key. Or...

B: To choose certain ones you want to delete: Hold down the CTRL key and left click the pictures you want to delete with your mouse. When you are done choosing the ones you don't want, hit your DELETE key.

This will remove all or your selected pictures from your smart card entirely.

If you are using the program that came with the camera, you can still use the same method using the CTRL key above to delete the pictures you don't want. It functions the same way regardless.

But be warned, try it out on a couple pictures first to see if you understand, because once they are gone, they are gone.

Good luck!

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.

Deleting pics


When in the playback menu, toggle the zoom out, as if you had already zoomed in on an object and then wanted to zoom back out. This should cause the pictures on your camera to be displayed in thumbnail mode. When you hit the trash/delete button in this viewing mode, you will be given the option to delete the entire folder's contents. You can also highlight a selection of thumbnails, then delete them all at once by choosing the "Select" option.
