Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

SOURCE: I have deleted allpictures off

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html.

You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!

SOURCE: I have a Nikon D70

shoot,
Is this a small capacity SD card? Like a 512mb or 1GB card?, you have to be careful not to shoot til the card is full, there's a risk of loosing data or corrupting what's on it. There are recovery utilities that can be loaded on your PC or Mac and run with a card reader to get the images back that are on the card. you didn't say what type of software you are using with the camera, is it Picture Project or Nikon's Preview software? Not just the Windows generic camera download. Also are you shooting in RAW? Let me know if I can help, I'll get you a name of a disk recovery site.

Use a card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop.

Try using a separate card reader.

My Nikon D60, I have had for four years and last week I went to take a picture and it said error hit the shutter release button again. It continued this for a minute or two before stopping. Then I went to...


If you were hoping for a reason to replace/upgrade the camera I think this would qualify. If you want to see if you can save it, find a camera repair shop in your area and at least have it looked at. It may cost you a diagnostic fee but that will give you a better idea of whether it's worth spending the money on.

Removing information on screen


You can get rid of the information screen by pressing the [i] button at the bottom left. However you'll still have to use the viewfinder to take your photos. Nikon didn't allow the LCD to be used for LiveView until they introduced the D3 and D300 a year after the D60.

My nikon D60 is taking dark photos.


The only reason the camera will be taking dark photos is when it is under exposing the image taken. This can be due to the exposure compensation set to under expose the metered exposure. Make sure the expsosure compensation is set to '0' or increase it to compensate for the dark photos.

Also inaccurately metering a scene (such as a high contrast scene) can easily fool the meter into under exposing, especially outdoors.

Cannot download pictures


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Can't connect to internet


When you recieved the microsoft update it might have changed the drivers of the adapter in your computer. If that is the case you need to reinstall the drivers of the adapter so that it can connect to your router again. You need to identify the brand and model of your adapter to do that.
