Problems transferring photos to SD Card

When I try to copy a photo over from my normal c:photos directory to the SD card using a number of methods; drag and drop, copy and paste, cut and paste etc... the SD directory says 'Cannot copy DCSXXXXX. The directory or file cannot be created'.

Yet if you select a number of photos to copy it will randomly copy 1 or two to the card then stop with the above message. There are already 410 photos on there. It is a 2gb card of which these take up 210mb. So there is easily enough space.

Here's the odd bit. I used to use a 512mb card - this also started to play up in the same fashion. So I got a new card and transferred the images across. It transferred most of them and again the above message. Now the problem seems much worse. I can hardly transfer any photos at all now.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Cannot import photos off my camera sd card,


I would try a different card in the camera, and format it before using.....if that works then you may have to use some special software to retrieve the photos off the bad card if they are important to you....

Trying to transfer photos to computor, hit transfer and it comes up Failed to initialize pluto. Don't know what to do.


You didn't say what software you are using, but there are better ways to download your photos. The best way is to connect your SD flash memory card to the computer. If your computer has a SD card slot you are in luck. If not, you can buy a USB SD reader for under $20 on line or in any computer store.

To use it, remove the SD card from your camera and insert it in the reader. Your computer will automatically recognize the SD card as an external memory device; exactly as it does with an external hard drive. You can then open the SD card and access the folder with your pictures. All you need to do is copy and paste your photos from the SD card to a new folder on your computer. It's that simple. Almost all professional photographers use this method and do not transfer pictures from the camera with the SD card in the camera.

How transfer photos from computer to pandigital


First...make sure the format of the photos is
compatible with the frame...JPG would be the best
choice.

I'm guessing the frame has an SD memory card?

Do you have an internal or external media reader?

If_Yes_try the following steps......

Insert the SD Card in your media reader and go to...
Start / Computer.

The media reader should be recognized as one or
more Removable Disks and each will have a drive
letter.

Example:
Removable Disk (F:)
Removable Disk (G:)
Removable Disk (H:)

Left click each Removable Disk until you reveal the
Root Directory of the SD Card.

(If not....the frame (connected by USB) may be listed
as a Removable Disk)

OK...now that you know the drive letter...if you right
click a selected group of photos or a complete folder
you should be able to choose...Send to / Removable
Disk (?:)...this should copy the photos to the SD Card.

Be sure the photos are in one or more folders because
the number of photos you can copy to the root directory
will be very limited. And you will receive the following error:

"Cannot copy XXXX: The directory or file cannot be created"

Camera will not allow me to "copy" photos to transfer from internal memory to SD card?


You may be able to connect the camera to a computer and access the picture files that way. Also make sure the SD card isn't close to full.

I want to downlode potos from laptop on sd card if posible herd can be don can u help please


Hello there.
You can download (transfer) photos from laptop to sd card directly only. Put SD card in your laptop and transfer it (copy from laptop/paste to SD card). Check if your SD card is unlocked (check lock button on it). Probably, it is impossible to transfer it from laptop to digital camera, but describe your photo camera. Even if you transfer it to SD card, photo camera will not see them.
Please rate if this was helpfull.

Sincerely,
Steve TM

Transferring photos from sd card to laptop


Go to windows explorer (Press the windows button on your keyboard and E simultaneously) and the SD card will show in the device list just like a normal hard disk. You can use it just like a normal hard disk as well to copy your files off from it.
