Nikkon camera help needed

 
Aargh! I have some pics to share, but my computer is playying silly beggars. I.ve got a Nikkon Coolpix 3700 with lots of pictures on the card - when I put the card in the PC it is a s if there are no oictures on it. I tried deleting the previous pictures, to see if that helped, to no avial.

Any suggestions? Much appreciated....

Did you format the card from your PC, or did you format it from the camera? Does the camera have a USB or FireWire port on it that you can plug into your PC? That's how I use mine, even though It's got a card, so that I don't have to worry about it - the Camera can read the Card, so I use the Camera to access the Card, saving me from having to pop it in & out, maybe get it dusty, etc.

Well, the camera and the pc stopped talking through the USB port some time ago, so I've been taking the card out and shooving it, I mean placing it gently, into the card slot. I think I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and get a new card & cable - but I have some pics on my camera thatI can't use now :0(

I happen to know someone who's going to be in the UK in about 6 weeks. He's going to be coming to Glasgow, actually. He happens to have a cheapy little digital camera which would probably read your card, but he's also got a perfectly working USB cable & a laptop to plug that cable into.

If all else fails, that is - don't let anybody format the card, that's certain. If you can hang on, we can probably fix it - or, at least, treat the pictures as if they're valuable enough not to erase.

Do you know someone else with the same type of camera? We fixed that problem by transfering a card from one camera to the other, when we were able to upload, then we got a new card. Hope you can retrieve the pics!

Please tell me that you saved a copy of the pictures off when you were using their PC? You burned a CD of them, in case it's a problem with the card, or in case you ... arrive with a problem with the card?

Yes - I'm paranoid.

But I'm not delusional, which is what counts, right? (added nervously, trying to remember whether the blog author he was writing to was associated with the mental health community)
