I didnt put my SD card into my camera and took some pictures. I put my camera USB connecter thing away in a safe place (don't know where that is at the moment). I've moved the pictures from my camera memory to my SD card before but I don't how to anymore. How do you do it?

Re: SD card and camera
The option that you're lookig for is usually found in the camera's menu. As I remember for Samsung digital camera this option is under "Setup Menu 4" and under that there is the option for "Copy to Card" just highlight that option in your camera select it and select "Yes".
Basically, ALL images, and movie clips and voice recording files (if any) saved in the internal memory are copied to the SD memory card after the "Processing!" message is displayed. Note that when you move images that are stored in the internal memory to the memory card, the next number of file names will created in the card to avoid duplication of the file name. So it won't copy over any picture with the same name/number in your memory card.
Try this out first. Otherwise if you don't see this option I think it's best to check your camera's user manual for the correct procedure, since most camera's have different menu layout and option names. If you don't have the manual you can donwload a copy at http://www.samsungcamera.com/customer/download/cus_down_main.asp just pick the correct camera manual.

If formatting does not work then most likely the memory card id faulty. Memory cards such as SD and USB memory sticks do not last forever. they do fail eventually after many writes and file file deletes or damaged by not using Safely Remove Hardware on the computer.
I don't know if there is a function to do this on your camera, but on the cameras I am familiar with, there is not.
However, if what you want to accomplish is to get your pictures from internal memory into your computer, there is a way. Simply remove the memory card from your camera before connecting the camera to your computer with a USB lead. The computer will then see the camera's internal memory instead of the card memory, and you can copy the pictures over.
If you have been accessing your pictures by removing the card from the camera and placing it in a card reader attached to your computer, then this won't work for pictures in the internal memory. You will need to use the other method, connecting the camera to the computer with the USB lead.
the camera has a sd card slot, insert a appropriate SD card to the camera, navigate its menu and find COPY TO CARD feature.
after the pictures are on the card, remove the card and connect it to a card reader which you can then connect to a computer.
or use appropriate usb cable to connect camera to the computer, then open "my computer" or computer from either desktop or start menu, then find removeable storage device and pictures inside. That is the same way a card reader would work.
Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions. Thanks, Ekse
SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.
try to put the back your sd card in your camera then go to option in your camera and search the copy file to memory / copy pictures...i try this in my camera....it works!!! if this won't work try to download your camera driver/software...
Check to make sure you didn't accidentally move the locking switch on the SD card to the locked position. There will be a switch on the side of the card. One side of the switch says locked, (or has picture of a locked lock) and the other side says unlocked, or has a picture of an unlocked lock. Try it out.
Sounds like a MobileMate quirk Tanya. Use your USB cable connection to your PC/Camera interface and delete pics that way too see if this funny goes away.
If it does, and I believe it will, then it is a SanDisk issue not revising the File Allocation Table(FAT) after deleting the Pic File on the mem card.
You could also find out if this is just an SDHC SD card reader issue by using an older less dense standard 1 or 2Meg non-SDHC mem card in the reader and see if issue goes away.
The fallback of course to view and delete the pics on the camera before download, or download pics then note which pic file numbers you want deleted after viewing on PC, then put SD card back in camera and delete them there.
Another option for trial, is to cut and paste the whole DCIM folder, or sub pic folder to your PC from off the SD card using the card reader. The camera automatically generates subfolders under the DCIM folder if you completely remove(deleting by a cut or move), when you take your first picture on a camera with a DCIM but not sub pic folder. Try this first and I think you will find all pics will be deleted from camera that are in a subfolder under DCIM. If not, then cut or move the whole DCIM folder and create a new DCIM(empty) folder on the SD card using the PC and card reader. Of course using this method you cannot selective delete individual pics from the mem card. You would be deleting them all after the Folder cut or move from the SD card.
