Re: i have a nikon D70 but have no softwear
Nikon offers its software for download at their <a rel='nofollow' href="http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61">official site</a>. Some of it is free - like the "Nikon Transfer" program you're looking for. Many of the others programs are the "try before you buy" type that allows you experiment for 30 - 60 days to see if it's a good fit for you first.
You could also purchase a simple card reader that connects to your computer via USB port. This way, you would simply remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the reader. You computer would see the card as an additional drive. No camera or battery power required. Many times that card reader will read (and write) much faster than if done in the camera.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of.(from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones)
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Nikon Transfer or Picasa.
Picture Project is rather old and has been superceded by Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX. You can download the current versions of all Nikon free software from http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61
You don't really need any software to use your camera.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".
Between them, Nikon Transfer and Nikon View NX will perform thoses functions. You can download them from the manufacturer's web site at http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61
You can download a memory card file recovery software that should let you get to the files. You need to go to the website of the company that made the card and get their software. (Sandisk, Kingston, Transcend, ...etc.) It may cost you money, depending on the card you bought. For instance, the software comes free with Sandisk CF Extreme III's, but not with the regular speed cards. This won't always work, but it usually does. I always format my cards on the PC every time I transfer. You have to format again when you put them into the camera though, so plan ahead before you go shoot.
I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.
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$
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
