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.
Read the manual on how to do a two-button reset. Also: from the nNikon Support Page on the D70::
It has come to our attention that select electrical components in a limited number of D70 cameras may, in some instances, fail affecting camera performance and/or operability.
While only a limited number of D70 cameras are affected by this advisory, if (1) when a memory card is inserted, your D70's memory card access lamp blinks, locking camera operations and preventing operation, or (2) with no memory card inserted, the camera will not turn on despite the battery indicator showing a fully charged battery, Nikon Inc. will service it free of charge.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience.
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.
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....
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$
Some digital SLR camera have a mirror lock and others have a viewfinder shutter
In each case this will be a knob in the region of the viewfinder that turns.
Check that this model has it and it has not be inadvertently turned.
Then come back
Users of Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Mac OS 9.x may experience problems trying to download images from the Nikon D70 using Nikon View. Initial shipments of the D70 have the USB option in the "Set up" menu set to PTP - Picture Transfer Protocol. PTP is only compatible for downloading images with Windows XP and Mac OS X.
To solve this issue please set the USB menu option to Mass Storage and then connect the camera to the computer. The D70's card will then mount like a removable disk and Nikon View will be able to transfer images
