Question about Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-50mm Lens

1 Answer

My computer (and my husband's)stopped seeing my Nikon D70 camera yesterday.It reads it as a removable disk and asks to format my memory card. I don't want to do that because than I'll loose all the pictures of the portrait session. The card reader doesn't see the memory card,and computer suggests me to format it.But I can view the pictures on my camera nad the Demo version of PhotoResque shows me the existing files when I start recovery, but than recovers only the pictures I already deleted a while ago. I need the existing pictures on the memory card. How should I get them?

Hello

My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory card to the computer via either the camera or preferably with a usb card reader , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentaly deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted card. Then select the card you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the pictures were lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the memory card as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Laptop running Windows7 previously mounted Nikon D70 (camera) as Mass Storage Device but, stopped recognising it. Camera sees laptop?


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 Windows Photo Gallery or Nikon Transfer.

Everytime i connect my nikon d70 to my laptop, there is always a problem with the installation of the hardware.. i can i solve this? is there other way aside from removing the memory card and connecting it...


You can try downloading the camera drivers directly from Nikon's website then see if the computer recognizes the camera, if not you will need to use a different computer to avoid a card reader.

My nikon d70 says that file does not contain image data


Hi,
If the memory card came from a different camera and inserted into the Nikon D70, the error message will appear. Just format the memory card with the D70 and the error should disappear.
Hope this helps.

I have a Nikon D50 with an error message "CHA"


This error indicates the following:
This card cannot be used (CHR) blinks.
Problem(s)
Error accessing memory card
Unable to create a new folder (on card)
Card has not been formatted for use on D70

Try another card
Format the card using your D70 (all images will be erased)
Check the card for visible damage or poor contacts.

You may have inserted a memory card that was been used in a different camera or the formatting process did not complete successfully.
I hope this helps.

Digital Nikon D70S - memory card removed while turned on.


Hi - You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

Nikon > D70

See page 200:

Try resetting the camera in this way first to see if it clears the problem.

The -E- means that the camera cannot detect that a memory card is present see page 199.

Check that the card is properly inserted (page 20) and as a last resort try formatting it (you will lose any pictures on it):

Difficult to say without seeing whats going off, your best bet is to stop using the card and get a memory card reader its quicker and better, and all your pictures may just be there and formatting the card may solve the problems..

if all is still not all right (prior to formatting the card) the card may have a fault or be corrupted (assuming the camera is ok)

There are many programs that can help you recover faulty formatted or corrupt memory cards. Do a search on google and try a few as some are better than others and some work better in certain situations than others.
searches to try
memory card recovery
memory card repair
Corrupted Memory Card


I wish you the very best of luck..
If I can be of further help drop me a line

The cards may have been corrupted in some way. Have you tried them in another camera or a card reader? If you have a reader, you might want to try formatting one of them from your computer.
