Question about Nikon D50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Nikon D50. Viewing and Downloading Pictures. First Time.

When connecting the USB (Windows Home Version), the computer DOES recognize the camera. It shows up in "My Computer" with a picture of a camera and it says D50. But when I click on that icon, the first 10 or so of my 75 pictures taken, show up as pictures, and so do the last 10 or so. The ones in the middle show up as a square drawing of some sort-all the same and they are not an actual picture I took. When I click on it, it automatically opens up "My Pictures" and goes there, but changes to a yellowish square labeled "NEF." I can't open with most programs that I normally use with my other cameras, and it says something like "DSC5127 NEF is not a supported image file, you may need to download an updated version..." etc etc I noticed also on those that they are like 5.19 mb pictures. The ones I can view as pictures are only 1.5 mb. Yet I did not change any camera settings during the shoot. I can only open the NEF pictures in "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer", but they are super, super small. Any ideas? Help? THANKS!!

You have change the image quality to "NEF-(RAW) + JPEG basic"
on your camera so it will not be recognized by some programs so change this go to menu on your camera then shooting menu and go down to image quality and change it to something like "JPEG normal" but your other images will be bad quality if you try and blow them up because they are designed for E-Mail and other things

Nikon coolpix s80 stopped downloading pictures


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa or Nikon Transfer.

If you insist on using the USB connection, does Nikon Transfer recognize the camera?
