Customer Question
We have a Nikon...

We have a Nikon D3100 camera. Last night I took several pictures. After each shot, I checked the picture to see if it was ok. The picture showed on my screen. Today, I pulled the memory card and none of my pictures were there. It appears my card was not inserted all the way, however no notice appeared on my screen when I was taking the pictures. Does this device by chance have an internal memory? These were important pictures, that is why I checked each one after each picture was taken.

Technician's Assistant: How old is your D3100?

I don't know. Probably at least 10 years old

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

I have tried to connect it directly to my computer.

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

I don't believe so

Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

No sorry, it does not have any internal memory in it.

But what do you see on the memory card when you put it into the computer?
