The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa. Organize edit and share your photos
"copy" is accessed from the playback menu. If that isn't available, decide if the pics stored in the internal memory are important. If not, format the camera with no memory card inserted to erase the internal memory. If you need those pics, then download them to your computer first...then format. Next, go into the menu and find "reset"..follow the on-screen instructions. Then, purchase an inexpensive card reader and download the pics from your memory card to your computer.(and promise yourself to use the card reader from now on...and remember that after downloading, use the "safely remove hardware" icon in the bottom right of your computer screen...don't just yank out the reader!). Finally, format the card in your camera and promise yourself never to use the internal memory again.
Your camera card may becoming corrupted. You could try using a separate card reader to try to download your pics or take them to Walmart and use the Kodak Picture Maker to print them or make a CD of them. Once they're downloaded, format the card in the camera for a fresh start.
Sounds like you are keeping way too many pictures on the card. That's not safe. Download them to your computer using a separate card reader if necessary. Then format the card in the camera and start fresh.
Thanks for the feedback. Your can directly download the pictures from the camera to the PC by connecting it with a USB cable supplied with your camera.
Also, you can download the pictures using a card reader. Remove the SD card from the camera, insert it in the card reader and connect the card reader to the PC. Your card will be displayed as "Removable disc" in My Computer. You can open and view/copy pictures by double-clicking on the "removable disk" icon in My Computer.
Hope this solves your problem. For more help and clarifications, please reply to this post. Thanks
if the display its ok ..I suspect something wrong with the internal memory ..try to remove the SD memory card and see if the pictures are actually stored on the card..and download directly from the card using a card reader ...if you only use the 32M internal memory and didnt expend on a Sd card ...probably its full or something wrong and do not store pictures anymore ..and thats why it doesnt sow'em anymore ...try to reset the camera to default setings Im not sure but all cameras have something lik ethis in menu...and try to see again the results...but if the camera works ok ..but cause a malfunction of software it do not sowa the pictures anymore ..the solution is to download from the SD mem card directly using a card reader ...most laptops have sd card reader ..and all picture printers read from the card too
no disc for these cams...should be able to view pics straight from SD card thru a card reader to pc...(may have to go thru START..MY COMPUTER...LOCATE DRIVE CARD READER IS DESIGNATED AS.... also should be able to view pics on tv thru video cable attached to cam.
Copy the existing photos on to your PC, switch off the camera. Remove the SD card and format the SD-card using a SD-card reader, this will clear all the card contents. Now try using it in your Camera again. Ideally, you should be able to save photos on this SD card. Other way would be to insert another SD card into your camera and click photos and check whether those photos are being saved into the SD card(this can be done using display option in your digicam.)
