    I have the same problem. Every couple of pictures or movies will come up with File contains no image data.

    I have the same problem. I've lost some great pics and dont want to go keep having this problem. When you lose pics, are you losing individual pics or the entire card worth? I was assuming it was the entire card, but now i'm not sure. I got the error, but could scroll through to other pics that were still good files, looks like I only lost one. Is this a card error, or a camera error?
    I'm sending mine back to NIKON to have them work on it.

Hello

are you using a removable SD memory card?

check to see if your card is compatible with your camera.

the card maybe corrupt or may need formatting, try that after you back your pictures, movies up.

if the SD card was bought on auction site, may be a counterfeit. (the legit cards have serial numbers on them)

Rotate the Live View switch located just above the circular multiselector.

Full details are in the "Live View" section of the manual (beginning on page 37 in my copy).

Nikon d50 monitor does not work during photo shooting, must use view finder


This is completely normal. The monitor is used for setting menu items, displaying shooting info, and reviewing images. Like SLR have functioned for over fifty years, you take pictures by composing and framing through the viewfinder. Only the most recent dSLRs have the Live View capability which allows you to use the monitor like a point&shoot camera.

The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.

I realize this probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

Nikon d60 does not allow me to view image whilst taking a picture


The D60 does not have a Live View capability. The monitor is used for shooting info, menus, and image reviews. It cannot be used to display the image while shooting. You must use the viewfinder for that, unless you connect the camera to a computer using the Camera Control Pro software from Nikon.

Error message: file contains no image data


Hello!
I may be able to add some advice on how to solve this unfortunate problem of "file contains no image data". I have been suffering from the same problem. I have recently been on some amazing vacations and the photos I have lost due to this problem have been invaluable to me! I would pay an insane amount of money to get these photos back, but unfortunately I cannot!
I have a nikon coolpix camera. I contacted the nikon coolpix technical support center. I spoke with a representative who asked me what type of memory card I have. As it turns out I have a generic memory card, which is not compatable with nikon. The only memory cards brands that are indicated to be used with the nikon coolpix camera that I have are as follows: Toshiba, Panasonic, Lexmark, and Sandisk. Those are the only 4!
I was told that if you use another memory card besides the memory cards brands that I have listed... that the camera may communicate incorrectly with your memory card, which results in data that is incomplete to support an image. When this happens you will only see a portion of your image, and you cannot get it back. These bad images with incomplete saved information are called "corrupt files". The representative told me that there are some programs that are available to purchase that may be able to correct corrupt .jpg files, but she believes that they are memory card brand specific.
To put it simply, when you do not have to compatable memory card in your camera, it is as if your camera is speaking english and your memory card is speaking chinese and they are not communicating properly (this was the way the representative explained this problem to me). So check your user manual for your specific type of camera or look it up online to see what type or brand of memory card you should be using! I truly hope this helps someone avoid losing invaluable photos!
