Nikon D40 displays: FILE DOES NOT CONTAIN IMAGE DATA

Camera displays this message sometimes after trying to take a picture, and fails to capture an image.
Also camera will only take picture if focussing is switched to manual.
Is this a common problem that can be solved, or is this a terminal malfunction?
Thanks for any ideas on this!

Hi, I have the Nikon Coolpix 3000 and I've recently had some problems. I have only had this camera since December; Several times I have tried to upload pictures and "this file contains no image...


You can try to reformat the sd card. Sometimes cards will contain data that disrupts the reading process.
Also, sometimes if you edit images on the pc, such as rotating them in Window's image viewer, it will rewrite the image as a jpeg that is unrecognized in the camera.
Lastly, check to see if the photos are being saved to the sd card or the camera.

Nikon d40 motnior blank while taking picture.


That's entirely correct. Live view cannot work on SLR's whilst the photo is being taken due to the requirement for the mirror and live view sensor to flip out of the way during image capture.

Live view on SLR cameras is a misleading description, it's really a live preview instead.

NEF Image will not open - Macintosh


RAW NEF images from Nikon cameras are proprietary formatted raw data directly from the cameras's sensor. If the images are improperly transferred to the computer they will not be able to be opened and will give an "Unsupported File Format" warning. Macintosh OS X has an "Image Capture" application (found in: Hard Drive/Applications/)that can be used to transfer images. If "Image Capture" is used NEF files will be corrupted and will not be able to be read. Only Nikon View, or manually dragging images from the mounted card, should be used to transfer NEF's. To disable "Image Capture": Double-click to open the hard drive and then the "Applications" folder Double-click "Image Capture" From the "Image Capture" menu choose "Preferences..." In the "When a camera is connected" pop-up choose "No Application" Close the Preferences window and Quit Image Capture After disabling Image Capture, it will not launch when the camera is connected and you can use Nikon View to properly transfer NEF images.

Can't place camera image file into another document


Nikon digital cameras record images in the "EXIF" (Exchangeable Image File Format) file type. Even though the file name (when shooting compressed files) ends in ".jpg" it is not a regular JPEG image. This format includes not only the JPEG picture data but also the shooting information (f/stop, shutter speed, lens, etc.) and other text-based data. Writing this type of information is part of the global "DCF" standard for images from digital cameras. Some applications do not properly read this data and will display various errors and warning when opening these files. The only way to use an image in one of these programs is to open it in an image-editing program and save the file to a new file name. This changes the file from an EXIF image and saves it into whatever format is chosen, stripping out all of the extra data. Contact the developer of the program which does not properly open EXIF files for possible updates.
