Question about Nikon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Didnt realise I furst had to format the memory card for my new Nikon D60. Took lots of photos at the weekend but when I took out the card to download the images there was nothing on it. However I can still view the images in the camera's display screen. I have loaded the disc that came with the camera on to my computer but have not as yet been able to work out how to download the pictures. Bearing in mind the memory card was not formatted I just want to know if I will be able to download the images or will I lose them.

In some cases we have found that if there is a virus on the card and if you try to read it directly on a computer having anti virus activated, the computer shows card as a blank. As the camera software is not effected by the window based virus, it can read the data. Try connecting the camera to the computer via USB. As the widows xp or higher versions do not require drivers or the camera software to be loaded to recognise the camera you can directly transfer the data from your card.

How do i delete photos from a nikon d 60 digital camera


To delete individual pictures, press the trashcan button while viewing the picture, then confirm.
To delete all pictures, format the memory card. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that hadn't been formatted recently.
The format command is in the setup menu. Full details are in the "Formatting Memory Cards" section of the manual (page 24 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one here.

I have nikon camera dx100 when i insert the memory card it says "CARD NOT FORMATTED" what will i do to fix this problem? i have very important pictures there taken during my niece's recognition...


Ladz215,
You didnt really say if the card was in your camera when you took the pictures, so I will try and walk you through a couple scenarios....
If the same card WAS in the camera when you took the pictures, and it worked OK until you took it out and re-inserted it, you can try a couple of different things. First off, by no means format the card! Look at the card contacts. If they are dirty, try wiping them gently with a clean cotton cloth (make sure it is cotton so you do not "zap" the card with static!) and some isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol- use it sparingly- put a little on the cloth- don't pour it on the card! Let it dry for a few minutes and try again. If you have some "canned air" you can blow out the camera slot also. With the card in your camera, also try connecting the USB cable to your PC and see if you can download them. If this does not work, look and see if you have a card slot in your PC or printer and see if you can read it that way. Another alternative is taking the card to the photo shop of your local Walgreens, CVS, Rite-Aid, or any other store with a photo shop....nearly all have card readers now.

If the card was not in your Nikon when you took the pictures, or if the card was not initially formatted, they will be in the cameras native memory. Connect the camera to your PC with the USB cable and you will be able to retrieve them. Normally without a card or if the card was not formatted before it is used, the camera is capable of holding about 35 pictures in its native memory.

When you are done, make sure to format your card so it will work in the future. Follow the menu instructions.

Good Luck! Thank You for using FixYa.

Green light on back of camera is flashing and I cannot view my photos


Green light flashing means that the camera is reading the memory card. If it keeps on flashing and flashing means that the camera is trying to read the card and not able to. This means that there is something wrong with the card. You should stick your card into the computer and transfer all your data from the card on to the computer. after all your photos are safe on your computer, put your card back in to the camera. turn the camera on, press the menu button, navigate to the menu that looks like a wrench and in that menu select "Format Memory Card" this will erase and format the card to how it should be. after that, you should be able to view your photos normally. If that doesn't work your card may be faulty and you may have to purchase another memory card.
Note: the camera might not display photos that you downloaded from you computer on to the card, cameras often only display photos that you took with the camera.

I took some pictures with my Nikon D60 camera in raw format now i am unable to copy them to my hard disc


You need a software program installed on your computer to work with and convert raw pictures. An example would be Photoshop Elements. Usually, cameras that can shoot raw photos come with software on a cd to work with the photos.

I took photos on my camera and didnt realise the memory card wasnt in my camera. i need the photo's off the camera how do i do it?


You didn't specify the model camera you have, so I can't give you specific instructions. Most Nikon CoolPix cameras have a "Copy" entry either in the Setup or Playback menus. Select that, and select the direction of the copy.

If you can't find it, please append a comment to this post stating the model camera and we'll go on from there.

You should try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your camera memory card, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

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

Can not get pictures off of internal Nikon D60


You don't. Without a memory card in the camera, there are no pictures to get out. It's really hard to be nice when they ask these kinds of questions.
