    thanks for our input! formatting didn't work. i tried the SD reader too to no avail. it looks like it might be a software problem. downloading pix on a Mac didn't work. but it seems fine on the Dell.

After you've donloaded your pictures, have you tried formatting your card in the camera? Press the Menu button, then go to the settings (tools) menu. Go down to the Format option. Select "Low Level" format if available in your menu. Again make sure that you have downloaded your pictures first as this will also erase your card.

If the above doesn't work, have you tried using an SD card reader? If so, the next thing to try would be a different card reader. And finally, have you done a recent sweep for spyware on your computer. Spyware can cause temporary hangup/hiccups that could potentially corrupt your download.

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Next" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Hi there Aug 2010 I purchased a D90 - recently the transfer program has stopped working as it does not recognise any photos for transfer even though I can see them and transfer using other windows...


I've been studying the problem for several minutes and actually downloaded the manual from the Nikon site to confirm a suspicion. With the camera software denying the transfer yet other "Windows" application are makes me believe that there is or are corrupt files on the memory card.
The Nikon D90 is a "Semi-Pro" type camera and feature packed, however if you have been deleting files and not formatting then the memory card has become saturated with empty files (deleted) what needs to be done each time you down load is format the memory card. Formatting cleans off all the old empty files, restores the memory card to a fresh medium and allows the camera and cart to communicate between each other efficiently. Also one other thing that might have happened is that the protect lock has been engaged. The camera SD card has a lock protection switch on the left upper side (with the letter facing up) this little switch need to be pushed to the top edge towards the gold contacts. I'll supply a diagram, there is also another thing is this a new memory card? if so did you format the card to the camera before you used it? Also your camera has some SD card memory capacity restrictions these are shown on page 242 of your manual.

My 450D thinks it's recording RAW pictures - only JPG on the SD


It is possible that you have set your Camera to RAW+L instead of RAW. Take card out ofb the camera, use a card reader and browse the card using the OS (as auxillary drive) rather than Aperture. I suspect that the RAW files are present, juts not visible on your computer possibly because of some setting in Aperture.

Can't access photos on 2 GB SD camera card.


You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your digital camera sd card, here are some for your options.

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.
