Problem with memory card

I would very much appreciate any advice you can give me with my problem. I was in Punta Cana last week; I started to take pictures on the plane on Saturday up until Tuesday evening (I took about 300 pictures). My batteries were low on Tuesday evening so I removed them on Wednesday morning and charged them for the entire day. When I put the batteries back, my pictures were gone. I know I did not delete them but I really want those pictures! Please help!

Re: Problem with memory card

Take out the memory card from your camera and insert it in another camera could use this type of card. It will let you know if your problem is with the camera or the memory card. Good luck!

Just bought it from Argos. Not installed a memory card but the Internal memory shows "Memory Full" sign after taking 1 picture. Additionally, the Available number of shots left is just 1 instead of at...

Almost all modern digital cameras have little if any internal memory. That which they do have is usually only their to be able to demonstrate the camera's features to customers trying them out in shops, etc. It is standard practice to use removable memory cards as this allows easy transfer to computers, printers and digital picture-frames. Also if you were going away on holiday and fill the memory it is simple to replace the memory card with a fresh blank one and carry on taking snaps.
I recommend you get a 2GB 'SD' memory card to start you off. They are very cheap these days compared to recent years.

Digital Nikon D70S - memory card removed while turned on.

Hi - You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

Nikon > D70

See page 200:


Try resetting the camera in this way first to see if it clears the problem.

The -E- means that the camera cannot detect that a memory card is present see page 199.

Check that the card is properly inserted (page 20) and as a last resort try formatting it (you will lose any pictures on it):

Unlock it. SD cards have a little slider on the left side (face up) that locks and unlocks it.
