    I have the same problem, and yes, I do have a memory card. My camera tells me that there are no images stored, and yet that I'm out of memory. I've tried to look at the card via my computer, but I can't find anything stored anywhere that would fill up my card. Even the trash folder is empty.



    I certainly have no technical expertise, so I may be totally off-base, but I think part of the problem is that I'm on a mac and my memory card was originally formatted for PC. In the past, when I have connected to a PC, I could see a trash folder that was full. Now, my mac shows a trash folder, but it's empty. I tried deleting the trash folder altogether, but that still didn't erase whatever is filling up my memory. I don't have my PC anymore, so now I seem to be stuck. 


    Any ideas?

Why am I getting am "Image Database File error" on my camera? I push enter and then I get an "Image Database File recovery failed". Can still take and save pictures but can not record videos do to problem.


Hi Linda,

If you get into the practice of FORMATING the memory card IN THE CAMERA after transferring the images and videos to your computer, many file related errors will go away. Formatting provides a "fresh start" for the camera to work with the memory card. Some older Sony cameras worked with optical media (CD / DVD), if this is the case for you, you may just have a bad disk. Insert a high quality disc as recommended by the camera and you should be good again.

I have a 4G Sandisk memory card which is compatible and still keep getting file contains no image data


The memory card was setup for your old camera. Try formatting the memory card using the Nikon camera's Menu settings.

I accidentally deleted all the pictures files from DCIM file folder on the computer (Imac) using "move to trash" option instead deleted them using camera (nikon D40x) menu. Now, even there is no images on...


Photos can be successfully retrieved from a memory card - however there is a catch. When you delete a photo, you really just tell the camera/computer to act like it isn't there. The actual bits in memory aren't changed to delete it (there is software you can get to actually delete them, but its usually completely unnecessary).
To get back your lost picture files try to use flash file recovery software. http://www.panterasoft.com/file-recovery/index.html

New photo files write over existing files.


How large is your memory card? If you're shooting at the full 9mp and highest quality, that takes up a lot of room on a small card.

I cannot see images of pictures taken on my camera


Hi!

There are a lot of recovery software that you can use to recover deleted files - specially pictures. You can try to use Zero Assumption Recovery. You can download the software at this site:
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/download.htm

It's a free software (you do not neet to pay to use this), and it's easy to use.

Here are the steps that you need to do:
1.) After you install this software, connect your camera or memory card to your PC . Open the Zero Assumption Recovery software.

2.) Click Next. Select "Recover images from the digital camera.." and click Next again.

3.) Select the Physical Device - select your camera or memory card , click Next. [grab a cup of coffee since retrieving the files may take some time depending on the size of the memory (",) ]

4.) After retrieving the files - select all the files that can be recovered. Click Next.

5.) Select the button on the right side (close to Destination) and select where you want to save the files. Click "Start recovering files".

That's it.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Memory card appears full but its empty?!


Although formatting the card should take care of that, I have used cards to transfer data from one computer to another, then the folder on the card is invisible to the camera, but still taking up space. Empty the card via the card reader by dragging files to the trash, then emptying the trash.

Can I transfer photos back to the card after editing the images?


Nikon complies with the industry standard DCF (Design Rule for Camera File Systems) format which governs the file structure of images on memory cards as well as file naming and other image properties. Due to the constraints of this file system, images that have been edited may not be able to be read by the camera when copied back to the card. The card can, however, be used to move images (or other files) just like any other removable disk. To do this connect the camera to the computer using the "MSC" USB mode (where supported) or use a third-party USB memory card reader. The camera's card will then appear like any other "Removable Device" and files can be copied to it. Nikon cannot offer additional assistance in transferring images back to the card or viewing edited images on the camera.
