Nikon D700 is a fully-fledged professional digital camera. It has a sensor of 12.1 MP CMOS, 100~25,600 ISO, 1/8,000 ~ 30 sec shutter speed, a 3," 920,000 pixel LCD, GN 39/12 flash, and a lens mount that can mount Nikon's AF, AF-D, AF-I and AF-S lens. The storage medium used in this camera is CF card.

CF cards are prone to several causes of photo loss. Virus infection, device formatting, accidental or purposeful deletion of data, or any sort of mishandling of the device lead to loss of data. Running a data backup process can recover the lost or deleted photos. However, if the facility is unavailable on your camera, or if it cannot help, you need some specific memory card recovery software.

Take a scenario. You have some photos in your CF card. Now, when you try to view or transfer them to your PC, the following error message pops up on your camera or computer monitor:

"Card not formatted."

Even if you remove and reload the card, the same error message keeps popping up, while the photos are nowhere to be found. They are lost.


If you are sure you used a formatted card when taking the photographs, the above error message could have most probably been prompted by either of the following errors:

removal of storage device from card reader or camera during previous data transfer or read/write process,

switching the camera off during previous data transfer or read/write process.

Both these mishandling actions have caused malfunctioning of the storage medium resulting in loss of the photos stored on them.


Now, you need to reformat your card to make it usable again, which will delete all data in it. Then, try running an updated data backup process, a simple built-in safeguard available on PCs and recent digital cameras to prevent data loss. If this facility is unavailable, or if it cannot help, buy and use a powerful memory card recovery software. Programs to ensure digital card recovery software employ highly advanced methods and algorithms to cater to complex digital photo recovery needs of the time.
