The photos had all been moved to a desktop computer. I tried to return them to the camera card. When I put the card in my laptop, I can view all the photos; but when the card is is the camera and you try to view the photos, the message says "no images". Why???

Re: Can't view photos on camera
The image when recorded in the camera is known as JPEG[EXIF} The EXIF bit is all the essential data the camera recorded about the camera [make model] exposure detail and much else. When the computer gets the images - it does not know about or need EXIF so it ignores it. Thus the images becomes a plain JPEG. Cameras cannot read plain JPEG. There are ways and means of 'restoring'[fudging to fool the camera] but in reality is it worth it? However if you want to try down load and learn to use Irfanview[Its free - simply type 'Irfanview' in your browser.

Green light flashing means that the camera is reading the memory card. If it keeps on flashing and flashing means that the camera is trying to read the card and not able to. This means that there is something wrong with the card. You should stick your card into the computer and transfer all your data from the card on to the computer. after all your photos are safe on your computer, put your card back in to the camera. turn the camera on, press the menu button, navigate to the menu that looks like a wrench and in that menu select "Format Memory Card" this will erase and format the card to how it should be. after that, you should be able to view your photos normally. If that doesn't work your card may be faulty and you may have to purchase another memory card.
Note: the camera might not display photos that you downloaded from you computer on to the card, cameras often only display photos that you took with the camera.
The camera may have encounter some damage on that incidenst , what you can try first here is to remove the battery for about 24 hours and after that check if you still ahve teh same problem, but if you're concern in transferring photos to your computer you can still do that using a card reader where you can put the memory card and conenct to the computer....
Usually you don't need any special software to download photos from most digital cameras. Try connecting your camera to the computer with the USB cable and then going to My Computer and seeing if the camera shows up as an additional device or hard drive on your system. If so, you can just manually copy or move the photos from the camera to the computer. You can also use free software such as Irfanview. to copy or move the photo files from your camera to your computer, and to view and edit your photos on the computer.
You can also remove the SD memory card from the camera and then put it in a memory card reader on your computer, and copy the files that way. If your computer doesn't have a built-in SD memory card reader you can buy one - they are very inexpensive, under $20 and available at most computer and camera stores. Just make sure you get one for "SD Memory Cards".
