The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Stoplight shows even though all pics have been downloaded


Do you happen to be on a Mac when you downloaded the photos? If so, make sure to empty the trash (while still having the camera plugged in) after you delete them.

I used my camera to take over 100 photos,I downloaded a pic from the Camera to the COMPUTER. In later that day I tried to used the camera and it's said file error.


If I understand, you downloaded 1 pic from a total of 100 pics. Did you then delete that 1 pic using the computer to do so instead of the camera? Or, did you yank out the USB cord without using the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen? Either one of these can cause your problem.

I uploaded pics from my computer onto my Camera SDPhotosmart M537


If I understand you correctly, you put pics onto the SD card using the computer, then put the card in the camera and now can't see the pics? Is that correct? The camera won't recognize the pics because it uses a different recording system than the computer. Now if you want to take more pictures using that card, you will need to format it in the camera first.

Camera wont turn on after trying to download pics to computer/can't find pics on computer now


You probably had a bad USB connection that supllied to much voltage (or had a bad ground or reverse polarity) to the camera and shorted out the circuit board. Disconnect all cables. Hook up to a charger and try again. If this does not work, the camera is fried, sorry.

Photos will not upload from camera to computer


Go to Desktop/MyComputer/Pana(or it may say USB Drive, or DCIM, and click on this external drive Icon.
You are now looking at the camera contents as if it were just another file folder on your PC, and behaves the same way.

You will find your pics in a sub-folder under a master folder, common for all camera file structures, named DCIM. You can drag and drop individual pic (jpg) files or whole pic subfolders from the camera to a place on your PC, usuallly Documents/Pictures.

You can do all other folder/file operations on this Camera Folder/Pic files you can do with those that exist on the PC like;cut, past, delete, rename, etc etc.

When you take you next first pic from your camera, after moving or deleting a pic subfoler under the Camera's DCIM master folder, the camera automatically creates another subfolder. Each subfolder holds 999 pics. The camera will atuomatically create a second, third, etc subfolder for pics 1000 to 1999, 2000 to...etc.

Only uploads certain photos?


Does your computer have enough space for all of the files? If you've checked that it does, you might try using a different program, such as Adobe Bridge. As a Canon user Canon's Digital Photo Professional is free (unlike Bridge), and it can allow you to see thumbnails of the images on your card. I've heard from other users to be sure you're using your camera to format the CF card and not your computer- somehow that affects the file storage system on the card. Good luck.
