The only way that your memory card has a virus is that it was downloaded to the memory card from the computer and no the "virus" would have little to no change of affecting the camera programing.
Format the card in the camera and that'll clean any nasty corrupt files and give you a clean working medium to work with again. A memory card after downloading pictures to the computer hard drive should be formatted not deleting every picture. Deleting doesn't clean and will over time cause some card errors and fail to download and a bunch of other annoyances. If the card is formatted after each download to the computer then this annoyance will be eliminated.

Scan virus


What problem are you having? I can't imagine a camera getting a virus. You can try plugging your memory card into your computer then running a scan on it if you think it may be infected.

Did a camera really get virus or it affect the camera?


A virus usually doesn't harm the camera. But a virus can reside in the memory card do crazy things; specially when you connect the camera to your PC.

After taking a picture with my D60 the shot is very slow to come up on the screen.Using smaller files speeds it up a little but it is still slower than my freinds D40x


Unfortunately this isn't anything that can be necessarily fixed per se.

I'd suggest looking at Nikon's website and finding any applicable firmware upgrades. However, upon checking Nikon's website there are no available firmware upgrades currently.

Beyond that, I also recommend formatting your memory card (after transferring your photos to your computer) and possibly looking into purchasing a faster memory card. Memory cards have different write/read speeds which can affect the rate at which your pictures come up onscreen in the camera.

My camera takes pictures fine, but when I go to record a video it says it can't read the S.D card.


hi,

there are two memories on your camera. there is an on-board memory and then the memory card.
usually the on-board memory is usually small and its completely possible that you have being taking all your pictures onto the on-board memory which is not large.

because video files are usually large, it may not be possible to record your videos onto the on-board memory.

here are some tips for you.

to confirm if you have being using on-board memory for your pictures, you should remove the memory card then take pictures with the camera. if you can stiil access all your pictures then you have being using the on=board memory.

the memory card could also might have not being well inserted, so insert properly and use.
its also possible the memory card might be corrupt so scan for viruses.
or it may need formating.

N.B. before formatting please back up your data.

You need to try downloading the pics using a separate card reader. If this is successful and your pics end up safe on your computer, then you need to format the card in the camera to completely erase it and optimize it. typrice_14.jpg

the first suspect should be your memory card,ahich has either worn out or being corrupted or being infected by viruses,put the memory card in a card reader and format it and use............

if the memory card works fine in other cameras,then ur camera is being affected by virus ahile you have transfered datas to any untrusted devices...........

I have a nikon d40 and have picked up a virus on the memory card. My Virus scan gave me the option of heal, however now the dcim file has disappeared and i cannot download the pics which are stil on the...


Once the dcim is removed there is no logarithm to find and rebuild them when they are in transfer of data.

There are some utilities that can guess as near as possible to the data required to build the pics, but my understanding of of these is that they are not reliable.

Even though you have removed the virus reformat the card anyway.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
