I am using a Nikon D70 for work, not used this camera before. I have the lowest settings for size of picture and yet the display is saying that I have 0 pictures left to be able to take, The camera shows that there are no photos on it, and also when plugged into the computer it shows no photos on the computer folder. What do I need to do to clear this problem and release the memory that I should have!

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.
Try to clean the contacts of the memory cards and, mostly, of the memory card bay of the camera. Use a dry anti-static fabric (e.g. what we use to clean eye-glasses). DON'T use any liquid cleaner of anything like that!
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$
If the camera works OK, then the r7 means that you have room in your memory buffer for 7 more pictures to take ("remaining 7"). As soon as you take a new picture, it gets transferred instantly to memory compact flash memory, and again r7 will display. The instance when there is r6, r4, etc. is short lasting, that you would not notice.
Change you camera setting, let say for small size JPG, and you should see that many more files will fit in the buffer, as indicated by a larger number after the letter r.
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
