Contains information about photos taken with a Nikon digital camera (such as a CoolPix camera); saved on the memory card along with the image files; typically only a few kilobytes in size since it does not contain any image data.

DSC files may be hidden on the card since they are referenced by Nikon's digital camera software and not meant to be opened manually.

Important: Many digital cameras save photos with filenames beginning with "DSC," but these image files typically have a .JPG extension.
