Question about Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-200mm Lens
I was almost happy with the D80 i bought 14 months ago, except for one malfunction 3 months ago: an ERR massage that disapeared after turning off the camera, but the pictures i took on the card from that moment on didn't upload and I lost them (for a while i could still could see them on the LCD, until i tried to upload). For three month everything was perfect, lots of good pictures.
Yesterday, the same thing happened again, much worse. I was working with my regular 18-200 Nikor VR lens. Suddenly an ERR massage, on/off until it disappeared, everything seemed fine with the pics appearing in the LCD both immediately after and when playing back, but when i tried to upload from the card, the PC didn't recognize it. Next step I tried to upload from the camera but now, the camera gave me a CHR message. NEEDLESS to say all my pictures (2G) lost again!!!
I was working with an Extreme III card, a month (10 formatings) old. I tried to use its rescue program that comes with it, no use.
Now the camera seems ok again but i am too scared to use it.
There are a few things I can recommend:
1. Please check your card on some other camera to make sure the media is alright.
2. I am not sure if you take the SD card out of the camera and put it into a card reader (stand alone, in your laptop/PC) to read the images. As I understand, you first took out the card and then put it back into the camera to read from the camera once it did not work in the card reader. However, there are issues with doing both. I will outline them below.
4. Try not to leave your images in the card after taking photographs. Try to save them to your PC at the earliest opportunity. Format after-wards (I can not repeat this point enough).
5. Use multiple cards of smaller capacity. They are cheaper to buy. Even if you lose one card to a mal-function, you still have photographs on others.
I hope this helps.
