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?

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.
Skip using the software and drivers. Simply buy and use a card reader. No software is necessary with all operating systems made in the last few years. Another advantage is that you can have your own choice on editors, and other software for viewing the files.
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.
try going to the camera web site see if there is any mac software that will work with your camera or go to the web site of the camera and see if there is a down load for your camera for a mac . or see if your friend has a pc and try to down load the pics on thrir computer.
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.
You do not need cameras software to download pics from your camera, btw. Just plug in your camera to USB port and it shows as an external DRIVE or USB STORAGE device in your MYCOMPUTER folder. Just click on its drive letter and you are looking at your cameras memory.
Click on the folder called DCIM and then subfolder(s) named depending on camera model. For Panasonic it is 100_PANA for example. Click on this and here is your pics. View, Drag and Drop, Delete, etc any pic just as if it was already on your computer.
To down load all pics, Drag and Drop (or cut and paste)the whole pic folder (100_PANA for example) to a location on your computer, as \Documents\Pictures. To delete all pics on camera, right click on pics folder and delete 100_PANA folder. or folder where your pics show up on your camera.
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.
