Question about Nikon Coolpix 3100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Card Contains No Images

I've only just got this camera and it came with no manual. I've hard a look around it and set the time and date and everything. I've tried taking photos, but eventhough it seems to do it and the flash goes and everything, when I try to use the Play Back mode; it just says "Card Contains No images" every single time.

How do you take photos with this? How do you save photos with this?

I assume I'm doing something wrong.

Thanks for reading!! =)

To download a copy of the manual, click >HERE<
Further Nikon support can be found >HERE<

Most cameras have two memory options.
Firstly, an internal SDRAM that cannot be removed from the camera and
secondly, a plug in memory card that can be removed.

Make sure that the write protect on the card has not been enabled.
If it has, your card will not allow anything to be written on it.
Also, check through the menu and make sure you have selected the External Memory. I do not know how to set up your camera but you should find everything you need to know in the user manual when you have downloaded it.

Have fun :-)

How do I set the time date stamp


• Setting Date & Time Use the Date & Time function to set the date and time of your camera. This function is useful attaching date stamps on captured images. Your camera uses a 12-hour time format. 1. Press the navigation controls to adjust date and time value. By holding down the up arrow or down arrow keys, the numeric values change continuously. 2. Press OK to apply changes.

Setting Date/Time on Polaroid a530


I contacted Polaroid help desk and they were clueless. They said there is no way to set the time after messing around with the camera for 10 minutes.

When you pull the photos off the camera it does record a date and time. I believe they forgot to add the option in the setup menu so you cannot get to it. I asked for them to send me a differant camera and the help desk rep laughed.

I guess thats what I get for buying a cheap camera.

Can't find how to set date/time stamp on picture


By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

I want to have the date/time stamped right on the photos. does this camera have that feature? Cannot find that in the manual. All it says is date/time settings and that it is used in the file name.

However the computer will only show the date information as part of the photo properties.
