Most cameras won't display pictures that weren't taken with the same model. If you tinker with the picture on a computer, you won't be able to view them again on the camera.

Make sure you back up your pictures before tinkering with them.

Viewing pictures on camera


When you rotated pictures you changed picture size and definition, that is the reason why camera does not display them again.
If you check file size, you will see that rotated pictures are smaller than regular ones.
There is no way to get picture to original definition once you reduce it, however if you use a program like Photoshop you can check size and definition on original pictures, and re-rotate and resize rotated pictures to send them back to the camera, quality will be poorer than originals. Attributes to check are length and width (preferably in pixels) and definition, then you save pictures as best quality.

As soon as i turn my camera on a message appears saying "naming error" and it wont let me take pictures or view already taken pictures.How do you fix this?


The file could not be created because there is a file with the same name as the directory that the camera is attempting to create, or the highest possible file number has already been reached. In the Rec. menu, please set [File No.] Reset to [On]. After you save all the images you wish to retain onto a computer, format the SD card. Please note that formatting will erase all the existing images and other data. This information is based on Canon support for your digital camera.

A list and defintion of the file types raw b, raw, fine, norm and basic


The D3000 can store still images in two different formats. JPEG is a standard format, recognized by just about every image viewer and image manipulation program in the world. RAW is actually NEF (Nikon Electronic Format), a Nikon-proprietary format which incorporates almost all of the data captured by the sensor, without the processing of JPEG. JPEG files have the color balance, sharpening, contrast, and all the other camera settings done on the picture. With RAW files, you can change any or all of them and produce new JPEGs. In this respect the RAW file is similar to the original negative you get from processed film, while the JPEG file is like the final print. RAW files need special software for viewing and editing.

All JPEG files are compressed to save space. FINE, NORM, and BASIC represent different levels of compression. FINE does the least compression and takes up the most space, BASIC does the most compression and takes up the least space. Compression always loses some quality, so in general the less the compression the better the quality.

RAW+B simply stores each of your pictures as a RAW file and a BASIC JPEG file.

Having said all that, you should use only RAW or FINE settings. You didn't buy a SLR only to throw away picture quality, did you?

You may try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your digital camera, here are some for your options.

Photo Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Recovery for Mac

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

Any camera is 'Blind' to JPEG files
Camera generate EXIF files a JPEG with extra data
Computers images editing software in the main strip off the this extra datae and therefore the camera can no longer 'see' the image.
There is software that will restor the Exif erxtender
Irfanview is one[a Free down load]

Transferring pictures


Once the camera is attached to the computer via USB cable, windows explorer treats the camera card just like another hard drive. the same goes if the camera card is inserted into a card reader.

Because of this, the camera can be seen as a listed hard drive, (C:), (D:), (E:)..... With windows explorer open view "Computer", listing all existing drives, plug your usb cable into the computer and the camera. When you turn on your camera, AutoPlay begins. Choices range from import pictures to viewing pictures with whatever programs are loaded into you computer.

If not AutoPlay then just use Windows Explorer. The Camera will appear as "Removable Disk (K:) [(K:) is on my computer]. Opening this disk will show subdirectories "DCIM" and 100OLYMP. Your pictures are in 100OLYMP. They can be higlighted and drug into the folder of your choice on your computer.

View with windows media center, etc. or download Google's free PICASA 3. It can also download ("Import") your pictures.

good luck
