many small Nikon cameras have memory to store images ON THE CAMERA. If you have a memory card installed that the CAMERA CAN READ it will put images on the card. if the memory card is corrupted the camera will not use it.
First Backup all IMAGES on Memory Card to COMPUTER make sure you saved ALL images. This is IMPORTANT.
After you SAVED all images you PUT Memory card back in camera and FORMAT it (Format is in TOOL Menu that looks like a wrench)
Now if you can take an images and it saves to memory card you are done. To see if they go to MEMORY CARD. Turn off camera and remove MEMORY CARD and Check.
If it STILL does not work you may have a defective memory card.
There will be options within the menu system that enable you to delete individual images, or to format the entire card for re-use. Do not forget to back up the images you wish to retain to your computer prior to deleting them.
Alternatively, you can just purchase a new card to use in your camera, thus ensuring that all your precious images are safe.
BTW, I think you may mean media card, not sim card. Sim cards are used in phones, not cameras.
You can simply delete the photos from your computer instead. Simply drag all your photos to the recycle bin in windows or trash can in mac and then empty it. This will delete everything you have on the card.
There are several recovery programs available. Some free, some not.
Try this out. It will let you know whether the files are recoverable or not. Meanwhile do not try to write any more files to the card.
