That answer is correct... the camera will only see pics currently taken on the card... you will not be able to copy pictures back on the card and see through the camera.

digital camera display the thumbnails of the pics and not the files itself...sometimes you can store pics as favorites on your camera to keep viewing but it does not show stored files copied to the camera

Did you put the folder onto the camera using a PC ?
Most cameras make their own file structure, and so you cannot view any added folders. You would have to put the picutres into the folders created by the camera -  usually Card\DCIM\100_1  or similar.
Dont create folders on your card, always put the files into the correct folder.

SOURCE: nothing on camera

Had to grin - this sounds familiar.

Why the pix are buried layers down I don't understand either.
Check your "My Computer" with the camera attached to see if the system sees the storage of it.
It should list it as a "Removable Drive" and (I have a number of drives) assigns 'K' to the camera when it is attached.

If it is shown, double-click on the icon and it should open it without problem.
If it doesn't, you have some lousy driver missing - you may have to reinstall Oly's software.
If it opens there should be a folder shown; my Oly uses DCIM, which, when opened, shows 100OLYMP folder.
This opened shows whatever pix are there.

If nothing works, attach the camera and note that it has established communication with the system, then reboot.
This will often force Blindows to recognize and reinstall missing software ****.

Here's the best solution. Get a card reader for your card (available at Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy, etc.) and use it to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can do anything you like with them.

You can view the photos from the camera.
OR
Remove the memory card from the camera and plug it into an USB card reader. Connect the card reader to the USB port on your computer, the computer will see the memory card as an external storage device, open the folders and photos on the memory card and you can copy them to your computer or just view the photos.

I have a Kodak Easy Share M853 which I love. However, when I connect it to my computer, it takes the pictures that I have taken directly to my Kodak Easy Share account on line. This is really handy;...


There should be an option in the EasyShare online album to save them to the PC - you may have to click on the picture first though. If not, you can right-click on the picture and choose the Save option.

Sir I tried to copy the pictures from camera to my PC but its not opening n show no folder in side the camera but when i take out the connection from PC it automatically showing the pics in cam.Will you...


Hi, the photos are visible in the Camera and not when connected to camera because in Windows the photos are hidden. You can view the hidden files by following below mentioned steps:

Please connect the Camera to the Computer, then open the Folder containing the Photos:

Click on Tools>Folder Options>View tab>select Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives option.

Then, click OK. Now the photos should be visible in Windows.

Please reply me if you face any problem in following the above mentioned steps.

I received an Emerson 10 x 25 Digital Camera Binoculars as a gift. I followed all the instructions, installed the drivers and the photoimpression5 from the enclosed disc. The download photo does not work....


Hi Brian,
Try this, it may work.It will tell you whether or not it is the Camera or the Software.
Your camera, as far as the computer itself and Windows XP is concerned is a 'DRIVE'.
Try the following steps:
0 Go to the desktop of the computer and in a blank spot right click the mouse and using the
menu CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON THE DESKTOP. LABEL IT "EMERSON PHOTO TEST"
1 Unplug the camera from the computer
2 Un-install the software.
3 If there are no pictures in the camera. Shoot some.
4 Turn the camera OFF.
5 While the camera is OFF, connect the it to the computer using it's cable.
6 Turn the camera ON (you should hear two musical notes telling you that it is connected.
7 Set the camera to the view mode as though your were looking at pictures on the screen on the camera back
8 There should appear a box on the screen. The first item in the box should be highlighted.
It will say "Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard" Click on that.
9 Follow each step of the wizard and deposit all of the pictures into the folder " Emerson Photo Test" Don't Erase the photos from the camera if it asks you.
10 Shut off the camera and disconnect it
11 Open up the folder on the desktop. At the top of the folder on the right select files view to Thumbnails.
If your cable and camera are OK, the photos will be there.
12 To Test PhotoImpressions5, to see if it will view the photos without crashing your computer.
Reinstall it and open the folder on the desktop.
One additional thing. If your Windows XP is not fully up to date, you should download The Service Packs and install them until you get to Service Pack 3.
To check which service pack you have now, if any, go to My Computer" and view "System Information" it will tell you which Service Pack you have.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

1. For Windows Computer:
(a) as soon as the Camera is connected the computer recognizes it as a removable drive.
(b) open the windows exlorer by pressing the "Windows + E" key together.
(c) locate the removable drive in the windows explorer that represents the connected camera.
(d) double click the drive to navigate through the files and folders, then double click on the DCIM folder to view all the images.or navigate through other available folders to check if the images are stored in them too.
(e) select all the desired images then copy them by pressing "CTRL+C" then paste them on the hard drive of the Computer by pressing "CTRL+V".

2. For Mac"
(a) as soon as the Camera is connected the computer recognizes it as a "NO NAME" folder and display it on the Desktop.
(b) double click the "NO Name" folder to navigate through the files and folders, then double click on the DCIM folder to view all the images. or navigate through other available folders to check if the images are stored in them too.

I have a sony cyber shot DSC-S700 camera, I can take photos but when I want to download them on my pc there is no photos there to view but I still can view them on the camera itself


Pictures are saved into folders on the camera - 101, 102, 103, etc. When accessing the camera from the computer, be sure you are looking in the folder on the camera where the pictures are.

Unable to view the pictures folder


Hi, I got the solution for myself. Initially I have enabled to view the hidden folder option and even then I was not able to see the folder, then later I have disabled the options Hide Extensions for Known file types and Hide Protected Operating system files. Then I could see the folder and able to retrieve the photos. Once I have taken my photos I have formatted my MMC card and it is working normally.

How to view


There are two ways to view the photos, in the camera...

1) if the camera is OFF and the lens barrier is closed, just press the Play (>) button once to view the photos.
2) If the camera is in SHOOTING mode with the lens barrier open, press the Quick View button twice in rapid succession.

When you are done reviewing the pictures, press the Quick View button once to turn the monitor off, OR, to return to the shooting mode, press the shutter button halfway.

Then use the arrow pads to go forward and backward.

Hope this helps.

Unable to view downloaded photos on camera screen


I had a Camedia 560 and it had this problem. Take a picture and then look at your memory card or camera from the computer. I think you will see that there is a complicated structure of folders - the pictures are in one folder and there is some kind of index file in another folder. The camera cannot display pictures restored from the computer unless you restore the index files as well as the picture files. Sorry I can't remember the details, but one way to do it would be to copy every last thing on the memory card. Not very convenient. This is a design flaw - my new camera doesn't have the problem and will display any picture I copy to it provided it was taken on the camera and not rotated or cropped. It doesn't mind other editing like putting a caption in the photo with a paint program. Panasonic Limix.
