Follow these steps: 1. If you have a SD card reader, insert the SD card and look for it in Windows Explorer. In this case, mine was labeled F: 2. Right Click on the drive for the Card Reader (IMPORTANT) and choose FORMAT. 3. Format card with default settings. 4. Turn Camera on and go to MENU> FORMAT CARD 5. Before answering the next question, insert SD card into camera. You will hear it beep twice. 6. Choose FORMAT and the card should be formatted for use on the camera. Cheers!

How do i delete all pictures off my camera

  1. Press the play button--which features a picture of a solid triangle in the middle of a rectangle--on the backside of the camera.
  2. Press the "menu" button to access the playback menu.
  3. Rotate the multi-selector dial to scroll the menu cursor to the "delete" option represented by a trash can.
  4. Scroll to the option "erase all images" and press the "OK" button on the backside of the camera.
  5. Scroll to the "yes" option on the confirmation dialogue and press the "OK" button on the backside of the camera. If a removable SD memory card is inside the camera, the camera will delete all of the photos on the card. If there is no SD memory card, the camera will delete all photographs in the internal memory.

Do you really want to download your pictures this way? The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. You can also use software such as Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX to transfer and organize your pictures. You can get the current versions of Nikon software from
