ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
If you are using only the camera's internal memory, or if you are using a memory card, try to delete all images. You have probably already tried this so also try to 'format' the internal memory, or card, by using the camera's menus.
The method will be something like this:- In the Review menu, Setup> Format
If you are using a memory card and this does not work, then put the memory card into a PC or into a card reader and right click on the card's icon in the My Computer screen, to bring up the format options. Then re-format the card in the camera to ensure compatibility.
Are you formatting the card in the camera as you're supposed to? Have you tried going into the menu and finding "reset" and followed the on-screen instructions? Do you have photos on the internal memory? If so, remove your card and format the camera to erase the memory.
First make sure that the photos are not actually on the camera's internal memory and not shot on the card to start with. Do this by trying to look at the photos through the camera with the card out of the card slot. Next before taking anymore pictures try putting the card into a different computer and card reader. If it still shows up empty you can try several recovery softwares online for free, only paying for them after they have found your photos and are ready for saving. If that doesn't work if you have a local photo store still they will offer recovery service and recovery services are available from companies like DriveSavers.com. Be warned, it can be expensive.
The problem stems from deleting some of the images from the PC. You need to copy all the files onto the PC, and delete all of them from the card on the camera. Then reformat the card on the camera. Then take 1 picture on the camera.
After you have just 1 new photo on the card, try copying the older files back onto the card in the same directory as the 1 new photo. This may work.
If it doesn't work, the problem may be with missing hidden thumbnail files. In that case you may not be able to get the photos to display on the camera again.
A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe.
During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive.
To resolve this error, try the following:
Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.
If you transfer the photos to your computer from the camera, you should be able to save to another memory card. I can't say whether or not the photos on the new memory card will show up on your camera since there may be certain requirements to display on camera screen.
Plug your camera into the computer USB or insert old memory card. A box should pop up giving you the option to view files. Copy and Paste (or Drag) selected photos to a specified folder on your computer (Like My Pictures in My Documents). Insert new memory card. Copy and Paste (or Drag) selected photos to the drive for your memory card.
If you can review the photos on the card while it is still in the camera (and by review, I mean go back and forth between multiple photos on the card), then there are two possibilities:
1. The photos really are on the card, and your computer can't read the card.
2. The photos really AREN'T on the card, and are perhaps in internal memory on the camera instead.
Some thoughts for things to try:
1. Put the card in the camera, take a few photos, make sure you can review them all on the camera. Take the card out. NOW try reviewing photos on the camera with NO card in. What happens?
2. Try putting the card in your card reader in your computer. Copy a file (any file, a word document, anything) from your hard drive onto the card. Is it there? Can you copy the file back off the card to somewhere else?
It sounds like the camera is fine, and the problem is with the card or the media reader.
