I have a memory card in my Nikon D60. I formatted it according to the manual, but when I put it in my HP printer there are no files. The only way I can see pictures is to USB the camera to my computer and then use the Nikon transfer software. Why am I not able to see these jpeg files which are labeled csc_xxxx?

Re: unable to view photos on camera memory card
Is the camera shooting in RAW mode? If so, the files will not be in JPG format. Perhaps your Nikon download software converts to JPG for you?
I'm a Canon user myself, so forgive me if my terminology is not correct for the Nikon, but the theory is the same...
On my canon I can choose to shoot JPG mode, or RAW+JPG - this is the only way the card can be read directly on a PC.

Maybe those shots you took were in the raw mode, If so then you have to convert them with the Nikon software that camera with the camera,to view them in your laptop, Try installing that software then view them again, Hope this helps,
To change the Info display format, follow the instructions in the "Info Display Format" section of the manual (page 120 in my copy). If you simply want to change the wallpaper image to one of your own, follow the instructions under "Wallpaper" (page 122 in my copy).
If you need a manual, you may download a copy from here.
To delete individual pictures, press the trashcan button while viewing the picture, then confirm. To delete all pictures, format the memory card. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that hadn't been formatted recently. The format command is in the setup menu. Full details are in the "Formatting Memory Cards" section of the manual (page 24 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one here.
Unfortunately this isn't anything that can be necessarily fixed per se.
I'd suggest looking at Nikon's website and finding any applicable firmware upgrades. However, upon checking Nikon's website there are no available firmware upgrades currently.
Beyond that, I also recommend formatting your memory card (after transferring your photos to your computer) and possibly looking into purchasing a faster memory card. Memory cards have different write/read speeds which can affect the rate at which your pictures come up onscreen in the camera.
Green light flashing means that the camera is reading the memory card. If it keeps on flashing and flashing means that the camera is trying to read the card and not able to. This means that there is something wrong with the card. You should stick your card into the computer and transfer all your data from the card on to the computer. after all your photos are safe on your computer, put your card back in to the camera. turn the camera on, press the menu button, navigate to the menu that looks like a wrench and in that menu select "Format Memory Card" this will erase and format the card to how it should be. after that, you should be able to view your photos normally. If that doesn't work your card may be faulty and you may have to purchase another memory card.
Note: the camera might not display photos that you downloaded from you computer on to the card, cameras often only display photos that you took with the camera.
You need a software program installed on your computer to work with and convert raw pictures. An example would be Photoshop Elements. Usually, cameras that can shoot raw photos come with software on a cd to work with the photos.
In your manual you will find how to change the display format (picture only, histogram, etc.). The time it's taking to display your image "might" be that your memory card is getting quite full and you're shooting large images. I shoot a D80 and it uses an SD card. Make sure you but a fast memory card if your camera does not buffer the inage before writing it to your memory card.
