Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Somehow the DCIM and MISC folders on my camera memory card have become .scr files, and in 'TYPE' it says "DWG trueView Script". I have no idea why, and they will not open or copy to my computer. There are probably about 2000 photo's on the card (2mb) which I can view from the camera. All I want to do is get the images on to my computer. Please help! Thanks Nick

    It's a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3.



    Yes I still have the CD that the camera came with, it contains a program called photofunSTUDIO for viewing, an ARCSoft software suite, quicktime and adobe reader, but this hasn't helped me so far.



    Initially they were not SCR files but folders containing JPEGS, somehow they have changed and I'm not sure how or why.

    Thanks, your right I got them imported. Had just never encountered that before, always thought you could just copy them over without the software, pretty dumb on my part, cheers.

    try to re-install the stduio software. it should rev back to Jpeg files.

    .scr is screen saver files.

    go to the vendor web site, find the software for the camera and download the image files.

    the files in your camera did not change. just the software that reads the file changed.



    did you try to put one of the pic on the desk top????

Hello,
The DCIM folder should not be hidden, but if it is, you can show hidden and system files if you go into the control panel and select folder options. Click on "Show hidden and system files.

Jessops Memory Card Erased


Format the card in the camera to restore the folders and prepare it for use in the camera.

I sure hope you're not actually doing this on a Pentax film camera...

I accidentally deleted my DCIM and MISC folder from my memory card ... I can't see the pictures I take .... how can I fix this mess!!!! Please help


Use software like PhotoRescue. Unless the photos were erased and then written over, they're probably still there. I used un-delete recovery software and it found my photos even after I had formatted the card and used it again to take more photos.

I know it's a late reply but other people may want to know you can find and recover deleted photos.

Sony memory stick PRO Duo 2GB Pc will not display photos on PC


Hey all actual solution...sort of will get you your files well it worked for me.

i have winrar on my windows 7 pc but should work for anything with winrar.

  1. open my computer
  2. right click memory stick pro duo
  3. click "add to archive"
  4. in the winrar window under format on the left hand side of the window half way down select "zip" format
  5. click "ok"
  6. once your files have archived the DCIM folder and MISC folder will be in the archived file and should be accessible from there
  7. NOTE: you cannot extract files after the archive has been created DCIM folder and MISC folder will still be invisible even if you extract them from the archive.
  8. Files can still be drag and dropped out of the DCIM folder onto desktop or chosen destination from the archived file.
Hope this has been helpful to all reading this and everyone who posted the problem :D

Why there are folders on my memory card?


The data on the SD Memory Card can be broken up into five separate folders (where applicable): * [DCIM]: The images in this folder (e.g. IMGA0001.JPG) are recorded in the JPEG format. * [MISC]: Files in which DPOF Data has been set to the image are in this folder. Slide show data created by SD-MovieStage Ver. 2.5 are also stored in this folder (e.g. AUTPLY0.MRK). * [SD_AUDIO]: Stores music data files (e.g. AOB001.SA1) recorded by the SD-Jukebox Ver.4. * [SD_VIDEO]: MPEG4 moving pictures are recorded in ASF format (e.g. MOL001.ASF). It can be played back with Windows Media Player 6.4 or later. * [SD_VOICE]: Folder in which voice data files (e.g. MOB001.VM1) are stored.
