I have a load of pics on my camera which I can view on there. When I download them onto my computer, click on the empty squares, it says no preview available. For instance I took 134 pics yesterday and only 5 of the thumbnails will open. Is this a corrupted memory card?

This is how I download pictures from the Internet and edit them for use in other programs etc.
First create a "Temp Pic" file in My Documents.
Now go to the pictures you want to download.
Viewing to picture right click on it and select "Save Image As"
Now a download window will appear - locate your "Temp Pic" file location and hit "Save".
To process pictures go to www.download.com and search "Fastone Image Viewer" (FREE).
Install the picture software on your computer. This is a Fulll feature picture processing tool.
Now go to your saved pictures in "Temp Pics". Select THUMBS view.
Double click on the picture you want and it will appear in the FSViewer program. (If FSViewer does not open, click on its Icon and and use the file search on the left side to locate the pictures Temp Pic file.) There are many Preferences as to how you want the program to view pictures.
In FSViewer, double click on an image two view it in normal size. In Preferences you can set it to open all pics in Full Screen. ESC will always take you back.
For using the pics in a web page you can Resize the pictures to meet the requirements of the web page. You can also Crop images to highlight the main subject. The first time you crop or alter an image it will save it back to the file automatically with a new name to preserve the original pic. If you make multiple changes to a pic it will ask if you want to replace the original - say no and ad a letter or number to the suggested file name and then save it.
FSViewer will also download and save pictures from digital cameras as well as offer to delete the original camera files. FSViewer does create it own storage file. You must creat a file folder (like Temp pic to store you pictures) You can also store the pics in MY PICTURES, but create a sub folder for the pics.
Practice with a copy of a picture first to get the feel of the software...
maybe the pictures are corrupt files, if so what will transferring them to your desktop accomplish. If the files are good and you have the appropriate software to view them you should be able to on the laptop.
However if you want to try...
1) put in mem stick , when laptop recognizes it go into my computer
2) click on the icon for mem stick and minimize it
3) open my computer a 2nd time and click on drive pics are on
4) click on the first file / first pic and the while holding down shift key go to end of list of files that are the pics
5) rt click and press cut
6) then go into the other my computer open which should be the mem stick then rt click and hit paste
7) remove mem stick from laptop and place it in desktop
8) when desktop recognizes it , gather up all pic files with the shift key procedure done on laptop
rt click cut/copy
9) then go into c drive or applicable hard drive then rt click paste
You don't say what programs you're trying to use to view the pics. Why not create a folder on your desktop and drag and drop the pics into it. Then, double-click the folder and on the left hand side of the window, choose slide show. They should play.
Try plugging the camera into your usb port of the computer and then open up "My Computer" and you should see the camera listed in there and you can just double click on it and view the pictures and save where you want.
i have the same camera..when it does that,your computer should be searching for new hardware so you can view your pictures. depending on what you use to view your photos(e.g. kodak easyshare,is where you will view the pictures you have taken prior to plugging in the camera.If there is nothing to view you then its obvious you have taken no pics.
I had the same problem with my digital cam/corder! An alternative solution to deleting pictures off the camera is, trickily enough, through your computer! This may be a bit of a hassle as you have preloaded your pics. What you will need to do is redownload your pics. You should be asked the option of deleting your pictures after download, and you click on the box.
