Question about Nikon D70s Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannot Copy {filename}: Parameters are incorrect

I get the subject message when trying to copy pictures from my D70s to my laptop via the USB connection. Out of about 200 pics I was able to get a little over half of them down before I started getting this message.
I unplugged the camera and when I plugged it back in I was able to recover about 10 more pics but the rest I am unable to get.
The pics ARE there when view via the LCD on the camera so they are there ... I have a card reader on order but am wondering if there is a trick to recovering these.
I also tried to do a check disk but it was not even able to start ...

    Thanks very much for the response. Your outline is what is currently on my plan. Battery was fully charged so we know that is not the issue.



    I am allready in the process of ordering a new card and will follow your advice regarding formatting the old one when I get the card reader. I also bought a copy of a file recovery program recommended in another thread and will use that as well.

First suggestion: Make sure the battery in the camera is completely charged and try again.

Your best bet is to use the card reader when it arrives. Sounds like a corrupt file on the memory card. Be sure to completely format the card (not just erase pictures) after you successfully get the images off. And I suggest running through a complete set (full card) of images that you don't care about (shoot your backyard) before you trust that memory card again.

Memory cards are (relatively) cheap, so consider replacing the card soon.

How do you get the pics off of a Nikon S70


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). 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 any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Are you using the same card reader for both memory cards? It's probably just your card reader. I had this problem before and it turned out to be my usb cable for my psp.
