When you connect your camera to the pc, via usb cable I presume, don't use the software that came with the camera, instead open the MY COMPUTER icon on the desktop, or in the windows START BUTTON. Your camera should in fact be recognized and appear as a new disk drive with its own drive letter or name.
If that happens, open the new drive window, and you should be able to see the folders that your camera uses to store pictures taken with it. It may depend on the picture frame requirements, but seems to me that you can now just drag and drop, cut, copy and paste any pictures you want right to the memory card drive, and I would not put them in any folder created by the camera, just on the memory card itself.

The other alternative is to purchase a memory card reader/writer for your type of card. They usually accept every card out there, and now you would be able to use that device to copy to and from the memory card without the need for a pc.

Hope that helps.

I have taken the sd card out of the camera, downloaded to my computer and now the camera will not read the sd card? Please help


Hi John,

First, make sure you have the photos on the computer. Once you know they are - then you know you have a working copy of them.

The problem you're describing can be the result of MOVING the files - rather than COPYING the files. Moving is the process of moving the original files from the card and putting them on the PC - while copying leaves the original files on the card and creates a copy on the PC. If you MOVED them then you shouldn't expect to see the original files on the card any longer.

If you copied them and the card no longer shows them or if you copied or moved them and the card is no longer visible the card may have been removed before it completed the file move / copy operation. You should only remove a card / usb drive / similar device when a message pops up saying it is safe to do so.

If: 1) there are no files visible, 2) the card can no longer be read or 3) your computer says the card needs to be formatted first - you may need to do that in an attempt to make the card useable again. If you do not have a copy of the files on your PC - try to copy them to another PC before formatting the card. If you can not get copies of the pictures / files on a 2nd PC, the files / pictures on the card are likely lost. You may find utilities than can restore them however (see link below)

recover pictures from memory card Google Search

Good memory card management includes 1) copying files from memory cards, 2) verifying that they have transferred successfully *and* finally 3) formatting the memory card *in* the camera; *not* the PC. Most cameras offer options to format cards - which is superior to simply deleting files or formatting in a PC. The camera tends to set the card up for its own use - rather than for a PC's use. Formatting the card in the camera can introduce subtle differences that make it worthwhile to do.

Not as much a big deal nowadays - but older devices, cameras, etc. can read / write only to "straight" SD cards. Today, there are SDHC and SDXC types. Make *sure* that you're using the type card your camera expects. Using an SDHC or SDXC card can have unpredictable results when used in devices that expect the older, "straight" SD (no "HC" and no "XC" suffix) type cards. More details about card types can be found linked below:

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.

How do I clear the memory card? It is 90% full ms530


If you already install the driver in a PC, then you can connect your camera via cable data, then you can move your picture files into PC's hard drive and delete the pictures in your camera's memory card. Or you can put off your memory card and open it via card reader. Do the same way (copy-paste-delete) to the picture files. After deleting process, you'll get more space in your memory card so you can put it back into your camera and you can use to save many pictures again.

Hope this help and be kind to rate please.

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


ok I figured out how to do it! put the memory card into the camera, then go to view the pictures. Then press the menu button and scroll until you see the copy button. 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! :)

My internal memory is full and I can't take picturs.


Put a card in this camera, and copy from the internal memory to the card all the pictures.

Most cameras have an internal menu to allow you to transfer or copy all files to the SD card (if you can copy the files, then copy them and delete all internal files after copy).
This digital camera has an internal memory of 16 megabytes which is a lot. But if the memory is full, it has to be copied, or delete some pictures.

How do I transfer pictures from my computer back on to my camera? Is it possible to transfer pictures back to your camera from the computer?


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!

Copying pictures from computer to memory card


i have seen this error and i dont know why it does that. you may want to try buying a micro disk setup that fits into a sd adapter that will fit in your camera.

then you can take out the micro disk when full and put it on a usb adapter and plug right into a usb port.

i know this sounds like more work but so far i havent had a lock up on that or error yet. go to tigerdirect.com if you want to see the different adapters for the sd disk and micro disk and usb etc....

maybe this might help
