Photos are captured as .DAT files

I just purchased a used PhotoRun UMAX digital camera. When I take pictures they show up as .DAT files on my computer. I am using WIN XP home as an operating system. I have installed new batteries and have formatted the compactflash card. Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: Formatting a CompactFlash card.

A digital camera's Format command is used to prepare a removeable CompactFlash memory card to accept digital image information from the camera. A card should be formatted when: * the card is new and has never been used before. * the card was used in a different camera or other device that accepts CompactFlash cards. * the card has become "corrupted" and will not store additional images.

SOURCE: camera does not turn on?!?!

I presume you aren't using a memory card - because if you are, the pics shouldn't vanish when you change the batteries. BTW, don't suppose you can help with the problem I posted?!

Photo transfer to pc


Transfer Photos from iPhone to MacIn almost all cases, the fastest and simplest way to copy pictures from an iPhone to a Mac is with Image Capture and Preview. We'll discuss how with both apps:
Using Image Capture to Import Photos in OS XThis is a fast and efficient way to pull photos off the iPhone, which treats the device as a digital camera:
  • Open Image Capture from the /Applications/ directory (or through Launchpad)
  • Connect the iPhone to the Mac through USB
  • Select a folder from the menu (default is Pictures folder) and then click "Import All"
  • OR: Select individual photos, and click "Import" to only copy those pictures over
You can also transfer pictures to your Mac with iPhoto or Preview, which is just as simple and actually has a virtually identical interface for initiating the transfer. Here is how to import with Preview:
Copying Photos with PreviewThough Preview is usually thought of as an image viewer, it can also serve as a fast importer:
  • Plug your iPhone into your Mac
  • Launch Preview
  • From the File menu navigate down and select "Import from iPhone..."
  • Select "Import All" to get all the pictures, otherwise individually select pictures and click 'Import'
  • Look in your ~/Pictures/ folder for the photos from your iPhone
Optionally: Click the checkbox with "Delete after import" if you want to delete the photos after they have been copied over to the computer.
The benefit of using either Preview or Image Capture is that these apps are on virtually every version of OS X since from the very beginning of the OS, so you won't find a Mac version without them. iPhoto on the other hand is generally limited to the consumer model Macs, thus making it not always available on pro models, but it does work as well, and iPhoto will also serve as a photo manager of sorts.
Transfer Photos from iPhone to PC (XP)Using Windows Plug & PlayThis utilizes the pop-up that shows by default in Windows when a device is connected to the computer by way of USB.
  • Plugin your iPhone to the computer without iTunes running
  • Wait for a popup asking you what you want to do with the device
  • Select "View Content"
  • Find your photos through the folders that are displayed
  • Copy the images from Windows as usual
Note that in Windows 7 and Windows 8 you will often find the iPhone mounted under "Portable Devices" but it can also be found listed under "Digital Camera". Opening either will work to copy the pictures over, but typically Digital Camera opens directly to the DCIM directory whereas Portable Devices will sometimes require minor navigation within the folder to copy the files.
Using iPhone as Digital Camera in Windows ExplorerIf your iPhone is already plugged into the PC, you can also try this method:
  • Open "My Computer"
  • Find the iPhone, it will appear as any other camera would
  • Open iPhone to find your Photos
  • Select the pictures you want to copy to your computer and copy/paste them into the desired location on your PC
The Windows approach treats the iPhone more like a file system, just like it does with standard digital cameras that are connected to a PC. That generally makes Windows even easier for moving pictures back and forth if you like to cut & paste things directly from one folder to another in My Pictures or My Documents. Nonetheless, you can also use your favorite photo importing application to pull the pictures from the device as well.
Remember, if the iPhone pictures are not showing up in Windows, make sure the iPhone is unlocked first. Otherwise the iPhone will be found in 'My Computer' but all of the content on it will be invisible and inaccessible. If you run into that, all you need to do is touch the iPhone, unlock the screen and enter the passcode, and all of your stuff will be visible as expected.
Finally, you can also sync your photos using just iTunes on either Mac OS or Windows but that is more for iPhone backup purposes and doesn't really serve as a means of accessing individual pictures.

On a Windows PC the easiest way to get pictures from your iPhone is to just use Windows Explorer, but there are two ways to go about this. In either case, unlock the iPhone before beginning, or else the photos may not be visible.

I have a x-940 camera and dont know how to make it show th edat eon photos


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

How do i recover deleted photos, is that possible


Yes, it is possible. And chances of recovery can be high as long as you act as soon as possible and stop using the digital camera to take more photos or videos, also keep the camera memory card in good shape (no physical damage).

Then you can rely on a digital camera data recovery software to get the job done and retrieve your photos. Here shows a list of good ones (for PC/Mac).

You'll need to connect the camera (mass memory card) to your computer. Then install the program to start scan & recover your files.

Should be easy to get back your lost memories!

I need to be able to a date stamp on the pictures I take. I have a Sony DSC H55


How do I get the date printed on my photo?

I'm sorry, but Sony cameras don't have this feature in the way you expect because it can be done better. The thing is, this was a useful feature on film photos, but the concept has been overtaken by technology, and is no longer relevant. Heh - you probably disagree with me, so let me explain that fully! When you take a photo with a digital camera, the current date and time are automatically stored in the photo file. In some cameras, it will be the same as the file date. Some cameras date the file with the date of download rather than the date of capture, but the date inside the file will always be the capture date. The date of capture is one of the items of EXIF data. You can read about this 'metadata' on wikipedia.

So how does EXIF data fulfill the benefits of the old 'print on film' date? From the point of view of indexing your library and simply not forgetting when the photo was taken, the EXIF data should always be present in the file, unless you choose to erase it. Thus, you will never lose track of the date of capture; if you have the image, you have the date. You can read the date with many tools, and in fact even Windows explorer will tell you the date if you simply hover over the picture. Here's an example; the bubble help shows the time of capture where the picture was taken, (windows shows me the time of capture in my own time zone).

What about legal proof of something? Sorry, you can't really do that any more. You couldn't have done it if you'd printed it on the image, either; it's just too easy to fake. The date of capture is editable, so it doesn't prove anything. If you need proof, get legal advice... in the heat of the moment, include a cellphone in-frame showing the date and time; you could fake that too, but it would be much harder.

Oh, you wanted your dates printed on physical pictures? Since you have a Sony, the software that came with your camera, Sony's Picture Motion Browser will print the date stamp on the printer from the EXIF data.

I have discovered that there are softwares which can add the EXIF date to the actual visible image, there's one here: http://gphotoshow.com/exif-iptc-watermarker.php and it is billed as a watermarking tool. One of your choices for the input data is the EXIF date within the file. It works, and it's free, but it does nag you to pay from time to time.

There is software that will print index sheets of your images and list their capture dates and times, too.

Photos lost without deleting them. How can I


dont worry, you can recover photos from camera with asoftech photo recovery software, you can download the software fromhttp://www.asoftech.com/apr/

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.
