Check the lock on the card itself, you have accidently locked it with your finger, if not put it back on the pc and check if the transfer software has locked it in someway.

Tip

Copy Pictures From INTERNAL MEMORY to Memory Card (solution for those who have...


Required:
Samsung D53 Camera
Memory Card (Clean with no pictures on it!)
Fresh batteries

Optional:
Computer
Memory card reader on your computer

Problem:
You have several (or more) photos that were taken with no memory card inserted into the camera, and they have been stored on the camera's internal memory. You have no USB cord to get the pictures off your camera.

Solution:
I don't know if this is in the manual (as this is a used camera I purchased with no manual or USB cord). In my frustration, I accidentally found out how to get my photos off the internal memory and onto my computer's hard drive.

Here are the steps I followed:

1. Ensure fresh batteries are inserted into your camera. You might lose data or get corrupted pictures if the camera dies while you're transferring pictures. Fresh batteries are important.

2. Insert memory card into the camera (where the batteries go) and close the lid.

3. Power camera on.

4. Press the Print/Review button (bottom button to the right of the LCD) once.

5. When you see the words "No Image!" appear, press the Menu/OK button.

6. A new menu will pop up, asking you COPY TO CARD -- use your buttons to highlight "Yes".

7. You will see your camera "Processing!" It will finish on its own, so do not interrupt the task.

(Optional)
8. Once it has finished "Processing!", remove memory card and insert into your computer's memory card reader to see and SAVE your pictures to your computer. Ensure all photos transferred properly before proceeding to Step 9.

9. With the memory card removed from the camera, power the camera back on and delete individual pictures, if you want to reserve internal memory for future emergency picture-taking situations (especially now that you know you can actually get the photos off of the camera's internal memory now!)

I took pictures on my camera without a memory card can i still download my pictures


I'm glad to provide the steps to transfer images from Internal Memory of the Camera. When the camera does not have a memory card in it, the images are saved by default to the camera's internal memory, which holds different amounts of images based on how many megapixels are built into the internal memory and what image quality and compression are selected in the camera's menu. Once a memory\picture card is inserted in the camera, the camera then saves the photos to the memory\picture card and ignores the internal memory.

There are two ways to transfer the images from the internal memory.




  • To transfer photos to a computer from the internal memory using the USB cable, first remove the memory card from the camera. Then, when the camera is connected, the computer and software will only see what is in the internal memory and transfer those photos or videos. During the transfer process, the computer makes copies of the photos and videos-the original images remain in the internal memory. After the transfer is complete and the camera is safely disconnected from the computer, the contents of the internal memory can be deleted by using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.


  • The other way to transfer photos from the internal memory is to transfer them to the memory\picture card using the BACKUP function in the SETUP menu. If there is no memory\picture card in the camera, the BACKUP function is grayed-out. During BACKUP, copies of the images are transferred to the memory\picture card-the original images remain in the internal memory. After the BACKUP is complete, the internal memory can be cleared by removing the memory\picture card and formatting the internal memory using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.


Note: When the camera is connected to a computer using the USB cable with a memory\picture card in the memory\picture card slot, the computer will only see the contents of the memory\picture card.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any additional help.

Connect you camera to the computer using the USB cable. It will be shown as a removable drive(If the autorun is enabled windows should list the option to transfer pictures.Choose this option if it does so). Open the drive and and transfer the pictures to your computer.

Transferring pictures


You might try putting the pix on a rewritable cd, and then copying them from that drive onto the smartcard drive with your card inserted. Or just try copying directly from your computer file to the smartcard drive with your card inserted, essentially using the computer's hardware to do the job instead of the camera's software.
