Hello, I started having this problem when I was importing some pictures, among which there were 2 videos.
One video was imported with no problem but for some reason the other video did not get imported. The video remains on my camera but I can't actually view it and when I try to delete it I get the message: Picture cannot be deleted. I haven't protected it either so I don't know how to get it off my camera.
Since this happened I have not been able to import any new pictures onto my computer. Any advice??

Videos and photos are the best means to
cherish good old days. At times due to accidental deletion of photos
and videos or formatting of the memory card results in the loss of
important clip. However, you still don't have to worry as Kernel
for Windows Data Recovery tool provides you with a safe and risk-free
alternative to get back all the lost or deleted photos and video
files from memory card in every condition. For more info visit http://www.recoveryfiles.net/
First take the memory card out of the camera. Pictures that have been deleted are probably still there, but will be overwritten if you take any more pictures on top of them.
Your camera is not able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try the one at THIS LINK
If the pictures are very important to you, you might want to seek help from an experienced person.
It's no problem at all to get them back. Do not take any more pictures, and remove the card from the camera to lessen the chance of you overwriting some important pictures or videos. There are VERY many freeware software options available to help you recover your files. Please see this blog article that reviews several of the better freeware recovery programs that you can download. You may need to use a card reader with these programs though.

It's probably because Picasa 3 is not your default import program for photos. You can fix this by:
In Windows XP, your default import setting must be adjusted on a device by device basis: * Connect the import device (your camera or card reader) to your computer. * Double-click My Computer on your computer desktop. * Right-click the listing of your import device. * Select Properties. * Click the Autoplay tab. * Select 'Pictures' from the content drop-down menu. * Choose from two possible actions: * Select an action to perform: Select an application to handle import by default each time photos are detected on the specific piece of hardware. * Prompt me each time to choose an action: Choose an import application each time you attach your hardware. * Click Apply. * Click OK.
Windows Vista allows you to set a global import preference for all photo or videos files. * Click Start > Control Panel. * Select Autoplay. * Under 'Picture' or 'Video,' select your default import program. * Click Save.
