Having problems with your Nikon Digital Cameras ?

I have recently purchased the NX2 software, and as recommended changed the setting on my D70s from JPEG fine to NEF (or Raw). In the past I have downloaded files using either Nikon View software or the Microsoft download wizard. But the Microsoft wizard tells me their are no pictures on the camara, and Nikon View software transfers the first two images then encounters an "unexpected problem", and when I try again it says "an unexpected error occured. Try again. This just repeats. Can you help?

Have Nikon Coolpix 885 dig. camera, bought in 2000, still works OK. I had been transferring the photos to my old computer using "Nikon View" 5 version 5.0.0 software that came with the camera and my Windows XP operating system with no problems. I now have a new computer using Windows 7. This is my question: Will it be OK to install the original "Nikon View" 5 disk with Windows 7 or is there a newer "Nikon View" software to work with Windows 7 and my old Coolpix 885?

Crash I greatly enjoyed the D70 until it suddenly stopped taking pictures. I got the dreaded ERR message. WE tried different batteries, lenses, cards, etc., but to no avail. This is a real bummer. I have used Nikons for 30 years. Currently, my F100 is also at Nikon. The back latch catches simply cracked and fell off! Plastic.A couple of years ago, the self-timer stopped working and Nikon had to replace the software circuits. (The warranty had run out.)


The D70 has a reset button at the bottom of the camera. Firts of all, I think you have checked you have the correct lens inserted (at least D mount) and well done, checked your memory card is correctly inserted, and if you have another, change it.Che ... Nikon D70 Digital Camera with 18-50mm Lens

My Nikon Coolpix LP16 is not detected by Windows on either my PC or my son's laptop, but IS detected by our Mac laptop.

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting?
