How can I set up files on my Nikon, D70, SLR? I would like to sort my pictures after I have taken a bloc, about 50. Could I download specific files to my computer or to an editing unit and avoid the search for one among 250 that would be on a memory card tody. The manual gives advice on how to name or rename such files, but little on establishing these little fellows. Thanks for your attention to this note. D F Lane, March 11, 2008
Thannks for your follow-up. Your references to selected pages in the camers's manuel were the what I needed. I got sidetracked by researching the word files.
The word is folders. Regardless, I was impressed by the featues of the camera.
Having edited stills and tapes with commercial equipment, I victimized myself by locking in on old words. My asking for the abillilty to move existing shots among old and new folders was asking a little much. I can do that with my editing equipment. With a little practice I will further enjoy the extensive range of this D-70.
I thank you again for your assistance and depth of knowledge. D F Lane

Possible failure of the display unit of the camera is the picture taken is sowing good image after downloading on the PC.
If so the panel must be taken out and checked for voltage on the pad, the flexible strip that connects the display also can be faulty.
You will need to have some experience to open and probe into the display unit.
Sorry for the long answer, but this is complicated.
Some photo editors will allow you to set them up to display the date on the photo.
HOWEVER on all digital cameras:
The date taken is part of the image data that is stored in the file, but not as part of the image. If you print directly from the D70, you can set the date and data to print in one of the menus, but this only applies if you print from the camera. There is no way to actually put the date on the image like there used to be in some film cameras. Since the "picture" is now just a set of computer data bits stored on a card, disk, or other medium, the actual picture is defined by the jpeg standard, which is part of the ANSI/ISO/IEC organization. A camera manufacturer could add an extra bit of hardware to generate some kind of laser mark on the digital sensor in the camera, but I'm not aware of any camera that has this. For sure, the D70 does not.
In the various softwares that you can buy to read the file, the information in the file (like the date) can be interpreted and printed any way the software is programmed, including putting it somewhere on the printed output.
That option isn't available for the D70 some manufactureres call it live view, sort of like looking through a video camera's viewfinder and it is what is going to to get recorded or what the picture is going to be. Some point-and-shoot cameras have that but no viewfinder. Digital camera owners have expressed a desire to have that option on DSLR's for a long time now so camera makers are adding that feature. It comes at a higer price now, but soon it will be a standard just like video for DSLR's (D-90). The reason it has been tough to add is that it is a real power drain on the battery to keep the display on and have the auto focus and metering going at the the same time which is what has to happen if it is a "live view". You can keep your display (of pictures taken on longer from the menu) but that's not really what you are after. Hope that helps.
Your camera settings and your computer file settings...
For the Nikon D70 make sure the file number sequence is set to on...
SET UP MENU (wrench icon) File Number Sequence: This lets the camera number your images starting at the last shot you made, even if you've formatted your card. I leave this to ON. If you turn this feature off you'll start from 0001.JPG each time... Are you working on a Mac or PC? If you are on a PC make sure that the program you are working on is set to sort by name... If your Nikon was not set to sequence, you will need to rename the files. Nikon has a free program, ViewNX, that will allow you to view, sort and rename image files... Additionally, on a PC, open Windows Explorer, go to Tools, Folder Options, View, and UN check the 'Hide extension' box... This allows you to see the naming extension's on you files... Have a great day....
Unfortunately, you may have a faulty flash pcb (printed circuit board) The part is around 50$ plus installation 200+ total repair cost. A work around would be to use an external flash unit from the hot shoe
According to my information, the camera may need a new flash PCB (printed circuit board). Check the repair service search on this site for someone in your area. The part number for the circuit board is: 1S014-020-1 and runs about 50$
