Copy from pc to camera

The software that comes with almost every camera, is used to make backups from the pictures on your camera. The backup device is thought to be a computer. So this software only allowed to move the pictures from the camera to the computer. lots of camera users don't even realise the have to install special software, to transfer the pictures from camera to computer.
Keeping all you computers only on one memory card in a camera is very dangerous, because there are lost of possibilities to lose all your pictures. But if you insist to put back pictures on the memory card, you should use a memory card reader connected to the computer. and copy the pictures from the computer to the memory card.
Don't try to copy pictures, made on other camera's, to the memory card that you us in your camera. Not all files are compatible, even not when they have the same name. So it could be, you have pictures from an other camera on your memory card and still you won't be able to view them on your camera display.

What do you do when camera says internal memory filled.

Digital cameras store pictures on their internal memory. Often users transfer their photographs to memory cards, because memory cards store more data and are accessible in computers, other digital cameras and other devices. When you want to move pictures stored on the internal memory card, do so through the camera's menu
1 Place the memory card into the digital camera.
2 Turn on the digital camera.
3 Access the digital camera's menu. Digital cameras have a button labeled "Menu" near the LCD screen. Push this button to open the menu.
4 Select the Pictures option. Select the photos on your internal memory using the "Select" or "OK" button on the arrow pad on the back of the camera. Click "Copy" and choose "Memory Card" to copy the files to the memory card. If there is more than one picture that needs copying to the memory card, perform this step for each picture.

Have a good day! Smile : )

I want to download my photo's from camera to hp laptop

After you take pictures with your digital camera, you'll want to copy the pictures from your camera to your computer so you can print them, share them with others, and back them up for safe keeping. Once your pictures are on your computer, you can erase them from your camera, freeing up memory so you can take more pictures. You can also view your pictures on a larger screen and decide which ones are worth keeping. Some digital cameras come with software that helps you copy pictures from your camera to your computer. You can use this software, but you don't have to. Windows XP can copy pictures to your computer without requiring additional software. Here's how to copy your pictures using Windows XP: 1. First connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways: ?Use a USB cable. Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. ?Use a memory card and memory card reader. A memory card reader is a piece of hardware that plugs right into your computer. You remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk. Tip: It's usually faster to use a memory card reader to copy your pictures than to connect your camera to your computer with a cable. 2. Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, Windows XP will detect the connection and ask you what you want to do with your pictures. If you connected your camera with a USB cable, click Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK. If you are using a memory card reader, click Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK. 3. When the Scanner and Camera Wizard appears, click Next. 4. All of the pictures on your camera (or in your camera's memory card) are now displayed on the Choose Pictures to Copy page. By default, Windows XP selects all of the pictures for downloading. If there are pictures you do not want to download, just clear the check box next to those pictures. At this stage, you can also rotate pictures that you took while holding your camera vertically. To rotate a picture, click it, and then click either the Rotate clockwise or Rotate counterclockwise button on the lower-left side of the page. When you have reviewed the pictures for downloading and rotated your vertical pictures, click Next. 5. On the Picture Name and Destination page, type a name for the group of pictures. (This name, plus a number to differentiate each picture, will be applied to each of the pictures you download; for example, if you name the group "Vacation," the pictures will be named "Vacation001," "Vacation002," and so on.) Click Browse, and select a folder in which to save your pictures. Tip: Create a new folder for each group of pictures you download. 6. If you want to erase the images from your camera's memory card to make space for new ones, select the Delete pictures from my device after copying them check box, and then click Next. The Scanner and Camera Wizard copies the pictures from your camera to the folder you specified and then removes the pictures from your camera's memory card. 7. On the Other Options page, you can choose to publish your pictures to a Web site or order prints. If you have finished working with your pictures, click Nothing, and then click Next. 8. On the final page of the wizard, click Finish. Windows XP opens a Windows Explorer window showing the pictures you downloaded from your camera. Your camera's memory card is now clean and ready to store new pictures. If you connected your camera to your computer using a USB cable, disconnect your camera. If you used a memory card reader, return the memory card to the camera. Your photos are now stored on your computer, ready for whatever you want to do with them, and your camera is ready to take more pictures. As with any important files, it's a good idea to make backup copies of your photos, in case anything happens to your computer

Nikon coolpix 4600: How to transfer pictures from camera to card?

Then you will see the option to copy from camera to card, or card to camera. Press the option to copy from camera to card and press select all....(or whichever pictures you want copied...I wanted all pictures copied). Then voila! it takes a few seconds to copy from the camera to the card, and there you have it! :)

As far as I know, there isn't a way to copy pictures from your internal memory to the memory card. I'm not sure why you're trying to do it, but if you just need to make the pictures portable, you could transfer the pictures to your computer and put them onto a cd or an USB flashdrive.

If there are images on your camera that you want off, put your memory card in. They camera will usually switch to your memory card. You must go to setup on your camera and switch it to internal memory. Once you have switched, review one of your pictures on your internal memory and bring up your menu. It should have a option that says "copy" or "copy all" to memory card. Push your okay button and they pictures should transfer. Now you have copies on your card and your camera. After you have done this, you can delete your pictures that are on your camera.
