This doesn't work for all cameras, but it does work for some cameras.

1) Make SURE you have all the photos in your computer.

2) Put the memory card into your camera and follow the camera's instructions to reformat the card.

3) Take 1 new photo on the memory card.

4) Put the memory card in the card reader on your computer. If you connect the camera directly to the computer instead of using a card reader, then do that now.

5) If your computer tries to automatically copy or move the photos to the computer cancel the process.

6) Use Windows Explorer (or Finder, if you use a Mac) and open 2 windows. In one window, navigate to the drive that represents your memory card. In the other window navigate to the location of your photos on your computer. This is usually in your My Pictures or Pictures drive under your user account.

7) On the memory card you will usually find the photo is in a subfolder, it may be several folders down. There may also be a thumbnail file. To copy files from your computer back onto the memory card so they can be seen in the camera you need to copy the files back onto the card using:

A) The same filename structure;
B) Include a thumbnail file if the camera creates thumbnail files
C) The file needs to be in the right folder structure (determined in step 7 above).

If your camera makes and uses thumbnail files but you don't have them on your computer, then you probably can't get the camera to recognize the files even if you copy them back onto the memory card in the right place.

Good luck!

Hi Mike. The only way I can think to do this, is with an separate card reader. Then you could take your SD card and load back and forth, from your computer to camera (and vice versa).

hope this helps!

Set the camera to MTP instead of PTP in the settings menu on the camera. This will allow it to operate as a USB device instead of only interacting with the Nikon software.

Specifically...

Hit menu on the camera, go to the setup menu, and select USB and then make sure it's set to "Mass Storage" and not "PTP". Then connect the camera.

Hope this helps.

Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.

Kind Regards
Andrea

I have just returned from holiday had no problem with my fujifinepix 500 I transfered pictures to my laptop with no problem however now after replacing card back into camera I can no longer see my pictures...


Hi,

If you used the camera's software to transfer the pics there is a possibility that all the pictures have been moved to the computer so there could be nothing on the card to view.

Have you tried to take a picture and see if it gets stored to the card? If it stores a picture to the card without error then probably the pictures have moved and not copied.

If the picture will not store to the card then there is a possibility that the card is faulty.


Regards.

And now they're not on my memory card


Very possible that it is, but I would guess that the answer is no. It sounds like it might have not transferred all the pictures but thought it did. If you have the option set of "delete after transfer" checked, it would explain this problem.

If you have not taken any pictures since the transfer, you can check the memory card for deleted files. If you have taken new ones since, then there is a possibility you have overwritten the ones you are looking for.

The program I use to undelete files that have been deleted from the recycle bin is free and can be downloaded from the following link.
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/Restoration.shtml

But you will need to put your camera memory card into a card reader rather than using your camera to do the transfer. I would also check your C: drive for deleted files.

Another suggestion is to do a search of your entire hard drive for ".jpg" or the file extension your pictures are taken in.

Hope this helps.

Hi there.
Yes you can put a few pictures on the SD card, you can transfer pictures back and forward while the camera is connected to the PC or you can transfer them via a card reader.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Transferring photo from computer to memory stick


Many cameras will not let you write to the card. Try using a card reader, which will make the memory card appear to the computer as a separate hard drive.
