Question about Nikon N70 35mm SLR Camera
For some unexplained reason many of my pictures are in DSCN format. I have no option at this time other than to process each one manually using adobe photoshop and once photo edited to any degree it then coverts to DSC. I have many to process and in total would be quite time consuming.
SOURCE: WHY ARE MY PHOTOS FROM
Nikon CoolPix cameras, in all but a very few old models, save in .jpg format. DSCN is the filename prefix, not the file type like a JPEG or TIFF. Some models will also save in TIFF format, or in a very select few very high end models in .NEF (Nikon Electronic Format) RAW files, but unless you're using a Nikon DSLR this is highly unlikely. If the images will open on any other program that views jpg files, such as the programs supplied with your computer then it's not a formatting issue.
For example, the file names should, from the time the camera is new, begin naming as DSCN0001.jpg, DSCN0002.jpg, and so on. If you're trying to transfer directly from the camera, to an IPAD, it's likely a driver issue instead of a file issue. Just remove the card and use a $5 SD card reader, or plug the card into the IPAD if it accepts them. You may also search to see if there is software available for your camera to use on the IPAD.

Connect the cam to a pc and turn it on. Discard the box that pops up. Open windows explorer. You'll see Removable Disk listed in the folders pane. Drop all image files you want to transfer to a folder named Nikon under the Removable Disk folder. But the files must be named DSCNxxxx for the camera to understand them.

A Photoshop Raw file is a Photoshop PSD file without a header. The header
information must be entered when the file is imported into Photoshop. The
raw format is used import and export bitmap data using a very simple,
uncompressed binary format.

You have your camera set to RAW format. It is not a compressed file, it is a full size file. Opening this in editing programs will either crash your computer or will refuse to open because of the size of the file. They are not damaged but your computer cannot handle the files. You should take them to a photo shop and have them put the files on a cd and consult your manual to change your camera to JPEG format.
