Having problems with your Nikon D40x Digital Camera ?

D50 Nikon SD Card won't tell me how many photos I have left

\015 I originally bought a 4GB card and I found out the hard way that the D-50 camera would only take a 2gb SD card. Now that I bought one- I'm getting a 1.0 on the window. I took a few photos and its still not telling me how many pics I have left. What's going on? Did I get the wrong cards? They are Dane-Elec 2gb SD cards.\015

Answers :

Are you getting "1.0" or "1.0k" on the display?

If you're getting "1.0k" that means more than 1000 but less than 1100 pictures. Try taking a hundred pics and see whether that drops the number down to nine-hundred-something.

I have a Nikon D70 and i am a photographer I shot a customers photos today. I shot the first half of the photos on this compact flash card and downloaded to my computer and then put it back in the camera and formatted the card. When I put the card back in I shot the rest of the photos using the same card. The last 2 photos I shot said that there was no image file and that I needed to change the card. I went to download the files to the computer but its telling me that the card needs to be format

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

Message Display I have a 256MB memory card for my camera. I have not taken many photos. Even at the lowest picture quality setting of 640, the camera reads that I only have 146 images to take. When I try to review what is in the camera, I receive the message "No Valid Image to Play." The instruction manual explains that the message means.

Problem with my D50 reading my card


Memory card I had photos stored on a SanDisk 512MB memory card in a Nikon Coolpix camera that is now broken. I put the card in my HP Photosmart r707 to try to trasnfer the photos to my computer. The memory card blocked the camera. I can bring up the photos in a diaporama on my computer but I cannot transfer them. And now the HP camera menu is written in Japanese(?) not the original French. How can I restore the camera to its original state and retrieve my photos.

To transfer the photos, connect directly SD card to your PC through a card reader.\015\012Try to reset your HP R707 camera: remove the battery and press the reset switch for about 5 seconds. Reinsert the battery. ... HP Photosmart R707 Digital Camera

I was having troubles with my Nikon D2H as in it wouldn't take a picture. I then realized my memory card was full so I deleted a few photos and it worked fine. This afternoon I deleted all the photos from the memory card and now it's having the problem of not taking photos again. I played around a bit with the settings, but it will only take 5 to 10 photos before no it stops taking photos. It used to hold 100+ with the memory card I have. Help?

You and a few million others all delete their pictures from the memory card when you should be formatting. Formatting cleans the memory card surface of all data and makes it ready to accept new image/data. You said that the card used to hold over 100 ... Nikon Digital Cameras

I have a Nikon D70 camera. I'm using a Lexar 2GB card inside. Problem focuses on the card. Previous to this moment, card has worked fine. Today, shot photos and when I hooked up the camera to download the pics, got an error in the viewfinder (CHR). Looked at the manual, and it said problem was with the card. I removed the card, and placed it in a card reader. It worked fine and I was able to transfer the photos. Replaced the card, and still get the same error. I've already re-formatted the card,

First, memory cards don't last forever, so it may be time for a new card. Make sure you check the pins in your camera and the contacts in your card for dust/dirt. I'd guess you already looked at this, though. \015\012\015\012I've had s ... Nikon D70 Body Only Digital Camera
