Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a Nikon D3100 camera and I have lost photos. Can you help me find and save them to my computer? I've been looking at photo-recovery software but it all costs money to save the files

Technician's Assistant: How old is your D3100?

I'm not sure

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your D3100?

Well We took about 80 photos one day and then next looked there were only 4. When I tried to import photos from camera to computer, it only would import 4

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No thanks
