Importing pictures

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 or FireWire). 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 cataloging program.

My Sony DSC-S930 camera says file error?

Get a card reader and use it to download to a folder you create on your desktop. If that doesn't get you all of your pics, take the card to a Walmart store and use their picture kiosk machines to print the pics or even make a CD of them. Once the pics are safe, you can format the card in the camera to get it erased and back to original condition.

Reads CARD FULL, can't view the pics, reads NO IMAGE

Sounds like the card has died. unfortunatly this can happen. and could be caused by a number of things including static.

you can maybe try a disk repair in windows.
hit your windows key and press r at the same time. in the command line type CMD and hit enter, it will open up a DOS window. type CHKDSK ?: /f where teh question mark is, is the drive letter that windows has assigned the card when you insert it. if it is an error that is repairible this might work.

Samsung SL310w Camera last day of holiday and Card error came up, can I retrieve my pics anyway. I had taken about 100 pictures. The card is and Optima SD 2GB which came with the camera. HELP PLEASE - PICS...

Take the card to a store that has a Kodak picture maker kiosk (like Walmart). Your pictures should show up and you can print them or even make a cd. After you do that, format the card in the camera before using it again.

-turn the unit OFF
-CONNECT the unit to your PC
-TURN the unit ON
-a selection should be displayed
-the computer should detect the unit as a REMOVABLE DEVICE
-open DCIM folder
-there should be folders inside DCIM named SSCAM100, SSCAM 101, ....
- your pictures should be inside those folders

*each folder consist of 100 pictures that you have taken

Hi i have a casio exilim and i am using a 2gb memory card in it, i went out last night and took lots of pictures after each pic was taken i viewed it to make sure it was ok or if i needed to take another...

You problem set your camera to use internal memory only. Set the memory function to memory card only and all pictures will go to the memory card until it is full. You can probably still transfer your pic files from internal memory to your card.

Help, I took about 80 pictures on my olympus sp-350 camera, an xd card was in it. Took my camera out the following night and half way through it seemed as if the camera switched to taking pics on the card/...

u may have over loaded ur camera and got the card to delete it automatically for you to take more pictures look in ur settings to see if thats it?

Cannot access pics

Once you took pictures without a memory card, all pictures taken will automatically be saved on the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera.
When taking pictures with a memory card, all pictures are just saved on the memory card itself.
If you are seeing 100-757 on the LCD screen. It means that there are already 757 pictures taken from the first time you've used the camera.
It is possible that some of the pictures are in the internal memory and some are in the memory card.

1) Remove memory card out of the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button
(lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the internal memory

2) Return memory card back in the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button (
lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the memory card itself

*** If you want to transfer pictures on the internal memory of the camera to your MEMORY CARD, you just have to follow the steps below:
- Make sure there is a memory card inside the camera
- Turn on camera
- Press on PLAY mode button to view pictures
- Press MENU/OK button
- Keep scrolling to the right until you see COPY TO CARD
- Select YES using the arrow keys
- Press MENU/OK to confirm
* When you've done these steps, all pictures from the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera will be copied to your MEMORY CARD but it depends on the space left on your memory card

** If still, you could not view the pictures, it's possible that the pictures are really gone when you have transferred the previous pictures to your computer.

** Once you have transferred pictures to your PC, and you have deleted those on your camera, the FILE NAME of the pictures will not start from 100-001 again unless you have reset the file name on the settings of your camera.

In example, i already have 256 pictures on my camera so the filename reads 100-256 for the last picture taken. And then i decided to transfer those 256 pictures to my PC and i deleted those immediately after being transferred. So, as i took another picture, FILENAME will start with 100-257 if i have not reset
the FILE NAME settings to 100-001.

Hope i've helped you enough.
