Nikon D40 Download Problems

I am running XP Home which won't recognize my 4GB SD card made by Dane Electric when using a direct access port or any of my USB ports with a USB cable and card reader. Is this a formatting problem?? It downloads from the camera satisfactorily.

Everytime I try to take a picture indoors it seems as though the pic is overexposed (white). I am only able to take pics outdoors, has anyone else had this problem?

It could be the card reader is unable to read the card not your pc. You might be able to get a firmware update from card readers web site.

Pictures show up on memory card in camera, but computer won't recognize the card - either inserted directly or by USB


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

It's not unusual for Windows updates to mess up the registry and cause problems with the card reader slot. The easiest solution is to get an inexpensive card reader that plugs into a USB port on your computer. They always work. typrice_125.jpg

I'm useing the pny optima sd/hc 60 hd 4gb scan disk! it has photos on it useing the camera,nikon coolpixl20. using nikon transfer does not load pictures on computer.


I had same problem. Neither computer nor printer would recognize the SDcard. I took the card to Walgreen's and the card was read just fine. I suspect that we are running XP and do not have the right driver; but I can't seem to find the right driver. Morgen

My computer is not reading the memory card. Nikon D80


If you are using a 4GB or higher SD card, some computers cannot read it directly from their in-built SD reader. Buy an external card reader and plug it in. Your computer should now be able to read cards 4GB and larger

D50 Nikon SD Card won't tell me how many photos I have left


Are you getting "1.0" or "1.0k" on the display?

If you're getting "1.0k" that means more than 1000 but less than 1100 pictures. Try taking a hundred pics and see whether that drops the number down to nine-hundred-something.

SD Card in Nikon F10 not recognised by XP


It could be one of two problems. The most likely is that the card reader you are using cannot read SDHC cards, of which all 4GB and larger cards are. Try using the camera's cable to download to your computer directly to the USB port. I bet you'll find that it works that way. The other problem could be (but not likely) that you are shooting on the RAW file format, instead of the jpeg file format. Most software cannot recognize RAW files, but jpeg is pretty universal.

Will Sandisk yltra II 4gb card work with Nikon D40?


I assume you mean Sandisk Ultra..and the answer is Yes it will work fine.

A good choice card also..

Just beware that some computers will need the SDHC reader.
For example my SDHC cards can be read in XP without the reader but my Vista machines need the reader.

Good luck and happy shooting :-)

SOFTWARE NOT WORKING


You may know this already, but you don't need the camera to upload photos. I have used Nikon Digital SLRs for several years and have never uploaded from the camera. You should be able to do so, but in the mean time, remove the SD card and use a SD card reader. If your PC doesnt have a built in SD reader, get a USB version like the SanDisk MicroMate or get SD with a built-in USB plug(see attached photos for both. When connected to your PC, either will show up as a removeable drive on your PC from which you can copy the files onto your PC's harddrive: save the photos, back them up, then use the camera to format the SD card--this is the best way to clear/erase the card. Then try opening the photos with the Nikon software or photoshop or if they are jpegs, windows will view them. Using the camera to upload photos, in my opinion, should only be done when you do not have a way to read the SD card. This can be the begining of a productive workflow and part of the process for organizing and backing up photographs. You should also watch the Nikon website for software updates to fix bugs: http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61 You should also check for firmware updates for your camera(1.11 is the latest for the D40 and no updates yet on the D40x): http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13783

Nikon D40 Memory Card Error


Hello. Make sure the write-protect switch on the SD card is in the UP (nearer to the contacts) position. Try the card in an SDHC capable reader on your computer first. Note that the SD card can only be inserted one way - make sure you're not putting it in upside-down! If the computer recognizes the presence of inserted card (whether it can read it or not), format it at FAT32. When finished, remove properly (icon in system tray) and insert into your D40 slot, WITH THE CAMERA OFF!! Turn on the D40, and if it now recognizes the SD card, FORMAT it again, in the camera. Good luck.
