I took some picture on my Nikon D50 without the sdcard, and they are stored on the camera's internal memory, and I have looked through the menu and through the manual, but cannot find a way to transfer onto my computer. I have plugged in with USB cable, but this only shows the photos on the SD card, which shows up on my Mac either this way or by plugging card in directly to side of iMac 21". Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance. C

When I put my memory card in my camera it says Err Cf and won't let me take pictures and won't show any of my previous pictures on the card on the screen on the camera. When I put the cf card in my card reader and plug it into my computer, nothing happens. The computer doesn't register the card at all and I tried putting a different memory card in the reader and it worked so it definitely isn't the card reader that is the problem. I don't care if the card is broken but I have a bunch of picture

Nikon S4. The LCD screen went blank/black during a photo shoot. It still takes pictures if you pull out the memory card you can see them, but NOTHING shows on the LCD. No menu, no photo review, nothing... Great camera and great lens. Hope to save it! Thanks!
Your only hope is buying a used replacement lcd and then taking the unit apart and replacing it. The lcd is about 25$. It is up to you if that is worth it or if replacement is a better option. ... Nikon Coolpix S4 Digital Camera
My computer (and my husband's)stopped seeing my Nikon D70 camera yesterday.It reads it as a removable disk and asks to format my memory card.

Camera does not have a memory card. No pictures exist, but I get MEMORY FULL message as soon as camera is turned on. When I go to the menu and go to MEMORY, the option ALL ERASE shows but I cannot get to it -- pressing the 'go to the right' function on the main menu button does nothing. Connecting the camera to the computer, I see that there are no contents in the folder(s). Have had the camera for 3-4 years, never had a memory card, would hold 4-6 photos in memory of camera before this. Ba

I took my memory card out of my camera,erased what was on it, add new pictures from my computer,to it,then put the memory card back in to the camera,and hooked the camera up to my television so I could view the pictures.

I just bought a nikon coolpixs210. I put the memory card in and took pictures without first formatting it. I downloaded the images onto my computer.

Can't get a picture on the screen - just shows black. When we turn the camera on the LCD screen displays the function choices and menu options, but will not display any image. If we take a picture using the view finder and then check for the image, nothing is displayed. We just checked the memory card, and it doesn't even take a photo. All we got was black. Any suggestions?
