Having problems with your Nikon D3100 Digital Camera ?

Cannot import pictures to iphoto

\015 Pictures are in jpeg format but iphoto says files are in unrecognizable format\015

Answers :

I will assume you are using OS-10 Snow Leopard or later and a recent version of iPhoto. I would experiment. First I would locate one of your files in Finder and open the picture in Preview to see if the file is basically good. Assuming it is, click on the Apple icon at the upper left of your screen and click 'Software Update' on the pull-down menu. Make sure iPhoto is up to date. Another thing you could try, would be to take one of the files that will not open properly and temporarily changing the file extension from .jepg to .jpg. Both .jepg and .jpg are the exact same format, but it is worth a try.

Importing Error When I try to import pictures from my camera onto my computer,  once the import starts an error pops up saying: "The following error occurred while importing DSC...JPG: The system cannot find the path specified."  It asks what I would like to do and gives three options: "Try again", "Skip this file", or "Skip all files with errors".  I tried all three- "Try again" = the error popped up again .

I have a Nikon S200 digital camera. I took some pictures last night, using the flash. When I flicked back through them, I found a problem.
