Go to the Nikon site and upgrade the firmware on your D70 to version 2.0.

Before doing that, try turning the camera off, wait a min, then back on. That sometimes clears the error. The D70 is having trouble reading the card(s) you're putting in. The upgrade fixes that.

My nikon d70 says that file does not contain image data


Hi,
If the memory card came from a different camera and inserted into the Nikon D70, the error message will appear. Just format the memory card with the D70 and the error should disappear.
Hope this helps.

Card reader won't recongnize card. I've installed numerous cards and still get "no card present" in the window and an E in display on top of the camera. I also got a CHR in the display once.....Thanks


Camera repair or selling for parts as is on a site such as Ebay is suggested for this one.
To repair the card reader, you would need to completely dismantle the camera. That is a job for a digital camera repair man, or Nikon to do.

Nikon does have a repair program, they may have a trade-off program as well. You would have to call them.
Here is a link.

I have a Nikon D70 camera. I'm using a Lexar 2GB card inside. Problem focuses on the card. Previous to this moment, card has worked fine. Today, shot photos and when I hooked up the camera to download the...


First, memory cards don't last forever, so it may be time for a new card. Make sure you check the pins in your camera and the contacts in your card for dust/dirt. I'd guess you already looked at this, though.

I've had similar problems with cards that worked fine after I did a long format on the PC, not in the camera. You need to put it in your reader and then right click and pick the Format option. Unclick the "Quick" button on the format menu, and try it. You'll have to format again when you put it in the camera.

There's not too much you can do with a memory card other than this. If you still get errors, try again with a new card. If you get the same errors, you'll need to get the camera looked at in a service center.

Camera will not power up changed battery just went dead Nikon D70


Fixing a Dead Nikon D70 - Green Blinking Light My first-generation Nikon D70, which I bought the day it was released to the market a few years back, died on me a few months ago. Without a card in it, it won't start, and when you insert a CF card in the slot, the green data-access indicator flashes on and off. If I hold down the Menu button, the menu flashes on and off along with the green LED.
d70_87x1.jpgAs it turns out, this is a known problem with the original Nikon D70 cameras, and Nikon USA has a service bulletin out on the camera body. They'll repair it free of charge.
So, if you have the same problem, visit this service bulletin page, http://nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Service-Advisories/D70-Service-Advisory.page click on the D70, and you can access a PDF file that you'll need to print, fill out and send to Nikon along with your camera body. Be sure to take your camera strap off and remove the battery, and don't send any lenses or other accessories.
Mine's on it's way to Nikon now - they say the turnaround is five days (plus shipping time).

I have a Nikon D50 with an error message "CHA"


This error indicates the following:
This card cannot be used (CHR) blinks.
Problem(s)
Error accessing memory card
Unable to create a new folder (on card)
Card has not been formatted for use on D70

Try another card
Format the card using your D70 (all images will be erased)
Check the card for visible damage or poor contacts.

You may have inserted a memory card that was been used in a different camera or the formatting process did not complete successfully.
I hope this helps.

Nikon D70 not showing shots in order as when i take them.


Greetings...

There are a couple of things to look at here...

Your camera settings and your computer file settings...

For the Nikon D70 make sure the file number sequence is set to on...

SET UP MENU (wrench icon)
File Number Sequence: This lets the camera number your images starting at the last shot you made, even if you've formatted your card. I leave this to ON. If you turn this feature off you'll start from 0001.JPG each time...
Are you working on a Mac or PC?
If you are on a PC make sure that the program you are working on is set to sort by name...
If your Nikon was not set to sequence, you will need to rename the files. Nikon has a free program, ViewNX, that will allow you to view, sort and rename image files...
Additionally, on a PC, open Windows Explorer, go to Tools, Folder Options, View, and UN check the 'Hide extension' box...
This allows you to see the naming extension's on you files...
Have a great day....

D70 USB setting issue


Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X. To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images
