Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download you pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples of CF card readers from Amazon:

Also, if the card has somehow become corrupted, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos. Take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will also need to use a card reader with this software. Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, recommend formatting the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again. Note that formatting will totally erase your card. Turn on the camera, press the menu button, select the tools menu. Go down to the selection that states your CF card's memory capacity and select it. Then follow the formatting prompts.

Will not take pictures camera saying full when memory card is not full also when no memory card is in camera


Your camera is talking about its internal memory. If you want the card to start working, you must get rid of the pics on the internal memory. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions.

Will formatting my memory card in my camera, while there are pics on it, delete the pictures I thought my Canon Powershot SX10-IS had an internal memory that my photos were being stored to, so I formatted...


Yes you can recover most or all if you act quickly. Go to your local staples or other computer store and speak with the technician about which piece of software you will need. j.

I received a new Compact Flash card (4GB) for my Nikon and when I put it in the camera it says out of memory?


If there are any pics in the internal memory, you need to get rid of them. With no card in the camera, download any you want to save and then go into the menu and find "format"...follow the instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, insert the new card and do the "format" thing again.

Pictures will not goto memory card. They only store to camera, therefore i can only take about 5-6 pictures?


Are the pictures stored in the memory important? Then go into the menu , scroll to "copy" and follow the instructions for copying from internal memory to card. Then, remove your card, bring up a picture from the internal memory and push the delete button...choose to delete all. Then, download any pics on your memory card to your computer using a card reader. Then, insert your card back into the camera, go into the menu, scroll to "format" and follow the on-screen instructions. After all this, you should be ok.

Internal memory is full,I have erased all


Take out memory card from camera, format internal memory to delete all pictures at once or delete them one by one.
Once memory card is inserted in camera, internal memory is no longer available to store/ delete pictures so remove memory card from camera to get access to internal memory.

Internal pics


if it's just seen on the XD card, then those pics were not saved in the internal/built in memory of the camera. Anyway, if you want to delete pics in the XD memory, just insert it in the card reader of your computer then just delete the pictures or format the memory card.

cheers!

Camera won't permit review of pictures


Hello Charlie, Hook your camera directly to your PC with the USB cable, The computer should see Kodak Easyshare, Double click on it to open and check in the folder shown for your photos and down load or delete them as you wish. As far as the SD card error it sounds like possible camera firmware problem,go to Kodak website under support for Dx7590 for the firmware and instructions.
Best Regards, Russell

Sony dsc s500 and a sandisk 4gb ultra II memory card problem


There is no way to do that since the internal memory is designed to only output to cards, not the other way around. Fortunately, this should not be a problem.

In general, the best way to transfer photos to your computer is to use a card reader - it provides a standard interface that the computer will recognize, it saves wear and tear on the camera, and it saves batteries.

I use Meritline.com for things like this because they are cheap and reliable, but please don't think there aren't hundreds of other places to get one from.

To help you, here is a link to the page at Meritline that lists card readers. Note that many have free shipping:

http://meritline.com/readers.html

This is a relatively cheap one with free shipping that will handle just about any card form factor except compact flash:

Good luck.
