Make sure that your camera will use magic gate chips... dsc-71/72 will not use them.

Samsung3 my camera does not show my pictures that I have taken. It shows a lightening bolt and a blank head. What is this?

What the icon is actually trying to show you is that the pictures are "broken". The camera cannot read the file on your card. Try removing your card and reinserting it then see if you can access the pictures. If not try removing the card and putting it into your PC card reader, using an adapter if you must. See if the PC can read the files. If it can, save the files to the PC. After the files are saved, format the card. If formatting the card does not work it is probably defective. If you can't read the files using the PC card reader, try formatting the card anyway and then test it with your camera. If it continues to show you the broken picture icon, buy a new car. I use Sandisk cards and have never had a problem with one. I have had an occasional trouble with card readers and re-inserting the card once or twice allowed the card to be read.

Cannot read all files

What do you mean with cannot read all files?
Can't you view the pictures on the camera. Or are some files or pictures issuing on your PC.
Are some pictures gone from your camera, and you are sure they were there before?
I will try to help you if I know more.

I have the Sony Cyber_Shot 7.2 mega pixels. My problem is, when trying to put the pictures onto my computer, the only that pops up is the "safely remove hardware" option. I've done this many...

The computer can recognise the camera memory as a removable drive without actually recognising the camera as a camera. Try looking in "My Computer" for an extra drive (Under "Devices with Removable Storage") and opening that. There should be directories with picture files in that you can drag to your desktop.

It may be that your camera driver has stopped working for some reason. You could try to reinstall it, but you don't really need this just to get pictures onto your computer. Usually the "Camera and scanner" installation is for using the camera as a webcam.

PC transfers files to and from SD memory card but camera show "No image" on SD card. Why can the camera no longer recognise picture files?

If you are putting pictures on the card using the computer and then expecting to see them on your camera, it doesn't work that way. You also run the risk of corrupting the card and even the camera.

SD Card in Nikon F10 not recognised by XP

It could be one of two problems. The most likely is that the card reader you are using cannot read SDHC cards, of which all 4GB and larger cards are. Try using the camera's cable to download to your computer directly to the USB port. I bet you'll find that it works that way. The other problem could be (but not likely) that you are shooting on the RAW file format, instead of the jpeg file format. Most software cannot recognize RAW files, but jpeg is pretty universal.

Sony Mavica CD1000 download pic's to Vista sysyem

It seems like the only solution is to find a "disc recovery" program to pull the pictures off the CD. I found and bought ($39.00) the program CDRoller. Although it is designed to recover problem files I found it sees the pictures and allows you to move them to your PC hard drive. Take the unfinalized CD, put it in you CD drive and run CDRoller. It finds the DCIM folder. You can open it to get the folder that contains the pictures. Open it and all of your picture file names are displayed. You can select all and do a save. It will ask you where you want to save them and define the folder on your PC. When the save is done your pictures are on the PC and your disc is still unfinalized so you can put it back into your camera and continue to take pictures.

Computer won't recognise camera to download images

** Problem Solved **

I found it wasn't the camera entirely to blame. I tried another USB cable on another pc, and although the camera was doing the same thing as my problem, the computer recognised the camera as new hardware, and asked me how to access the pictures. So I was able to get the pictures from the camera to the computer, and then saved them on to my Kingston flash drive. So taking the flash drive to my daily PC, I plugged in my flash drive via a USB extension lead, and discovered that would read either... alarm bells rang. So I unplugged the lead, and put the flash drive straight into the computer direct. The computer recognised it immediately. So plugging in the extension lead again, and the flash drive, it read this now. So I tried the camera, and it recognised it.

So I don't know exactly what the problem was, but it was solved... saved me a lot of running around and money ;)
