Try formatting the card then using it again. Does this work?

Got a Nikon Coolpix A10 camera, not able to see photo's taken comes up with message File contains no image data. Telling me that there are photo's taken


Have you set up the folder where your images are saved to, and the file type, from the main menu? It may be looking in the wrong place and for the wrong file format!

DISK SAYS "FILE DOES NOT CONTAIN IMAGE DATA" BUT


hi there,

this case will happen if you still have pictures on memory card and it hasn`t been formatted using the Nikon system

the solution is backup your files on memory card to PC/laptop, then reformat the memory card using Nikon menu

Multiple colour lines appearing in d40x


Can you upload a photo that shows this? You can just take one set to low resolution so the file size isn't too big.

File does not contain image data


Thats a good question. Can you view the same picture on your computer? have you edited the photos you are trying to view (even rotated them on the PC), or re-named them. If you have renamed them, you will need to change the name back to the same format as they were when taken EG: NI7000001 (similar number is OK, but must have the same amount of characters in filename) ..., connect computer and browse to folder where photos are, see if the ones you are trying to view are viewable on pc, and check their names. also see if the size of the ones you are trying to view are smaller or larger size, as they may be corrupt. I would copy them all off the camera and then format the card in the camera. A lot of problems occur when the card is not formatted for long periods of time.

Error message on Nikon D40X camera


Yes, This happens to me if I change the file in any way, but don't take it off of my SD card. .So if you crop it or rotate it or anything, it's changed the file and won't be able to read it the same way. If you just "move" the file (on your computer) to a file, it won't be there any more. Hope that helps...

How to date/time stamp photos?


No. with digital cameras there is no need to do so, as the date and all other details, such as what lens was used and exposure, etc. is stored in the image file as EXIF data.  If you need a date-stamp for legal purposes, I suggest you submit the original image, preferably RAW, from the camera.

Blackout on LCD Image Playback


It baffled me too, at first. What has happened is that the navigation dial has been (probably) accidently pressed, thus putting the display in "highlight" mode. When it is doing the blinky thing, press the down arrow to scroll thru the playback modes. A couple of presses and you'll be back to normal. This will show you the super light areas of an image, so it can be useful to avoid loss of detail in highlighted areas, but it sure looks wierd at first.
