Having problems with your Nikon COOLPIX S230 Digital Camera ?

When I plug the s230 into my laptop and try to "explore" or view pictures, it shows an empty card. I have over 100 pictures on it right now.

Answers :

There are other ways to view the pictures on the card. If your laptop has a card reader, then insert the card into it and hopefully your laptop will read the pictures. Once you finish copying them, format the card. Filesytem issues are the main reason why a camera cannot read the card. So hopefully it resolve the issue.

Anti-shake problem My Konica Minolta 7D stopped taking pictures. It will still auto-focus, but nothing happens when you press the shutter button all the way down. The problem I experience is: 1.

Hi, I just got back from vacation and pulled my Fuji 128mb memory card out of my Olympus Stylus digital 300 camera and put it in my laptop (as I normally would)and the computer is showing that the folders are empty.

I have GE C1130 and it has a tendency of losing pictures . When you go on the viewing part it shows empty. Also shows empty when you hook it to a computer. I haven't deleted anything.

Why is my camera says "the card is full" when I turn it on? I know the card is empty, there is only one or none picture on it. If I put an empty memory card in my camera and turn it on it tells me that the card is full. it cannot be right, because I deleted the pictures from the card. Why is that? How can I fix it?

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).
