Check your ISO, your white balance, and whether you have set exposure compensation by mistake.

Are you sure it is full, did you put it into a computer to check? Maybe the picture resolution is very high or you have videos and there is more than 2Gb worth of photos.

Have you tried an alternate lens? Ensure AF is enabled on both camera left side and on side of lens.

Once embedded in the picture, there is no simple way to remove the date mark.

However, there are lots of image editing packages that are able to remove unwanted parts of a picture in a computer. It takes a bit of work, but it is worth learning how to "photoshop" pics, as you can improve them in many ways, even removing unwanted lampposts or parked cars.

Photos can be successfully retrieved from a memory card - however there is a catch. When you delete a photo, you really just tell the camera/computer to act like it isn't there. The actual bits in memory aren't changed to delete it (there is software you can get to actually delete them, but its usually completely unnecessary).
To get back your lost picture files try to use flash file recovery software. http://www.panterasoft.com/file-recovery/index.html

I agree - I had a usb cable that worked fine with other devices, but not with the D40x - I changed it and everything worked fine.

Are you certain you used to have Live View on the D40x? Then something was wrong, as Nikon never put it in.

The D40x does not have Live View.

Hi jchp_2001, I want to help you with your question, but without more information from you, I can only guess what you mean? What do you mean by "sharp spots"? I will assume that you are talking about speckles of white or colors in the deep shadow areas of your pictures or in black areas of night time exposures. What you are seeing is electrical noise generated by your camera's sensor and amplified by other electronic circuitry in your camera. Newer and more advanced cameras have higher signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio circuitry that reduces, but does not entirely eliminate the problem. The S/N ratio is a measure of how much stronger the picture information is than the electrical noise (analogous to to the static you hear on a week AM radio station). The higher this ratio, the fewer artaffects, such as spots, will appear in your pictures. There are a couple of ways to lessen this problem. You could use a shorter exposure time, lower the ISO setting on your camera (of course that would increase the required exposure time and my nullify the benefit), or illuminate the shadow areas with supplemental lighting. The other way is to buy a newer camera that has a higher S/N ratio. One of the main goals in new sensor and camera design is to raise the S/N ratio. Trading in your D40x on a newer model DX (24x16mm sensor) format camera will help. The reason that professionals more advanced photographers spend thousands of dollars on full frame (36x24mm sensor [the same size as a 35mm film slide]) digital cameras such as the D600, D610, D800 or D810 is because the larger sensors have an inherently higher signal to noise ratio. That is in part why your D40x gives you better quality pictures than a Coolpix camera for example, which has a smaller sensor.

Sorry this is too late, perhaps it will be useful to others. I hope you used a different lens for the wedding!

You can't use the 50mm 1.8 lens on the D40x unless you focus manually. This is because the D40x only supports autofocus with AF-S and AF-I lenses. The focus motor and drive mechanism for other AF lenses was omitted to make the camera smaller, lighter and cheaper.

First, make sure that both the camera and lens are set to auto-focus. The problem is possibly as simple as dirty contacts between the lens and the camera's lens mount. Depress and hold the lens release button while you fully rotate the lens back and forth about ten times. The friction between the contacts on the lens and the contacts on the lens mount will clean the contacts.

This is the Nikon support web page that has the firmware updates for your camera. Current Firmware downloads available for Nikon products Nikon... The D40 is near the bottom of the list. Follow the instructions carefully.

If you haven't done anything to the memory card since you deleted the pictures then you have a good chance to recover at least some of your pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.
