I believe you can do that, it should not be a problem ( moving your sd card to another camera). Worst case scenario, you would have to go buy an sd card reader ( pretty cheap, probably won't have to spend more than $50 for it, not even that) and take the sd card out and put it in the reader and download from there. Good Luck!

Photograph Transfer. Unable to transfer from VAIO


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Trouble with transfer to my computer


Try this attach you USB cable to the Computer and Camera. It should find the device and download the pictures itself. That is how it works for my Canon powershot A 80.

Hello Michaela1,

There are a few things I can recommend:

1. Please check your card on some other camera to make sure the media is alright.

2. I am not sure if you take the SD card out of the camera and put it into a card reader (stand alone, in your laptop/PC) to read the images. As I understand, you first took out the card and then put it back into the camera to read from the camera once it did not work in the card reader. However, there are issues with doing both. I will outline them below.
  • Card Reader: At times, reading a card in a card reader will mess it up and it will remain unusable in the camera even if it displays photographs on camera LCD. Please note, this will happen even if you have only viewed the photographs on your computer and not saved them to your hard drive/media. The card will most definitely not work in camera if you delete photographs from the card or edit them on the card. The only solution to this is to format that card IN the Camera. The manual has instructions for the same.
  • In Camera: Other times, you may have connected the camera through the USB cable to a computer with the card in the camera. This problem may crop up IF you used your computer to delete images from the card whilst it was IN the camera. Again, the solution is to format the card. IN the camera, not from the PC.
3. Whether you use the USB cable or take out the card and put it into a card reader to save your photographs, always repeat ALWAYS format your card in the camera after transferring your photographs. This ensures card will not malfunction unless the media is corrupt. This also has the added benefit of not having the same photographs a few times over.

4. Try not to leave your images in the card after taking photographs. Try to save them to your PC at the earliest opportunity. Format after-wards (I can not repeat this point enough).

5. Use multiple cards of smaller capacity. They are cheaper to buy. Even if you lose one card to a mal-function, you still have photographs on others.

I hope this helps.

Memory card locked!??


What you need to do is take out the card, and on the side of it there should be a little gray thing which can slide up and down. It needs to be slid all the way up. I hope this helps!!

Unable to View Photos/Video - is my SD card to blame?


The question to ask is - is you camera happy with a 2 Gig card? Coming to files on the card you could try one or more of the recovery programs for example www.convar.com for 'pc inspector' see what this manages to pull up. You also try 'Irfanview' which has a little more latitude at file discrimination that a regular editor.

320 x 240 dpi Photo Transfer Problem


Certain computer hardware and software configurations conflict with PhotoMAX or PhotoImpression software. As a result, you may not be able to transfer 320 x 240 dpi photos from your Polaroid Fun! Flash 640 digital damera. This problem does not occur if you use the camera's default resolution of 640 x 480 dpi.
