Uploading files back to the camera

Hi, I can't copy files from my computer back to the camera. When I try to drag I get an 'X' and when I try to copy paste the paste option is disabled. Please help I really need to use the memory card for an important meeting. Thanks.

    Just got a feedback from Canon Support. Here goes:

    You will not be able to upload any images that have been edited or any
    of the movie files. Please be aware that when you upload the images
    from your computer back to your CF card, you will lose some image size
    and quality. Please complete the following procedure to upload the
    images back to the CF card:

    If you are a Windows user:

    1. Connect the camera to the computer and open the Canon ZoomBrowser EX
    software.
    2. Left click "Camera and Memory Card" on the left hand side of the
    screen.
    3. Left click "Upload images."
    4. Select the images that you wish to upload.
    5. Left click "Finish."
    6. Resize the image as required and left click "Add."

    If you are a Macintosh user:

    1. Connect the camera to the computer and open the Canon ImageBrowser
    software.
    2. Click the "Upload" button.
    3. When the "Save To Camera" dialog box appears, set up all of the
    necessary options. Click on "Save To Camera." The selected image(s)
    will now be copied to the camera.

    Good point. I just remembered that I can use my HP printer to handle the memory card!
    Thanks for your tips :-)

Why would you want to load images back the camera? Once images are loaded to computer for editing- then camera will no longer recognise them. This is because the image type taken by the camera is properly called an EXIF image- which is a JPEG with Extra information such a camera make and exposure detail. Editing images in an image editor will remove this EXIF information and it becomes a plain vanilla JPEG. Cameras do not recognize JPEGS. The Exif can be replaced with some software by a fudge that kids the camera- Try Photo shop or Paint-Shop- but it is a long shot.

    Just like I said.
    Once images have been through a computer process they are no good for camera viewing.

    How ever if you want to use the memory card as a storage medium other than through a camera- invest in a card reader- if you do not already have one- this will enable you to transport your images to upload into any device with a USB connection
    Another computer/data projector/whatever.

Why is my nikon coolpix L26 not uploading my pictures


First, use the review function to make sure your camera actually took the pictures. Assuming it did, I would remove the SD memory card from the camera and use a card reader to transfer the pictures to your computer. If your computer does not have an SD memory reader, many USB readers are available for under $20. They are USB devices and once they are attached to your computer and you insert the SD card, the computer will act as if the SD card is another external hard drive. You will be able to transfer your photo files from the SC card to a file on your hard drive via copy and paste or drag and drop. Although you can erase your card when you are done by deleting the files, it is better to put the card back in your camera and use the format function found in you camera's menus.

Camera not uploading pictures to laptop


The best way to transfer 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.

You could use a card reader and when your files open on your desktop, just drag and drop the new ones to a folder you create on your desktop or "my pictures" or wherever. 14fa888.jpg

Canon powershot g11 was taking photos and


Hi,


I highly recommend that you instead consider using a card reader to move the photos or videos to your computer. Card reader's do not require software (although Windows 98 and earlier may require drivers), are very inexpensive, are much faster downloading files from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during the download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.Really, it would be better for the camera user if one of these was included with the camera instead of the cable and bundled software.You place the camera's card in the reader, plug the reader into the USB port, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For this simplicity, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. You'll save yourself a lot of heartache if you convert to using one of these. Also make sure that you get a reader that is clearly stated capable of reading your card, particularly if you use SD-HC, XD, CF, or MS cards.


Thank you!

My USB wire of the camera is lost.. could you please give me another way of uploading the pictures from camera to the computer ??


You can take SD memory card from your camera and use a card reader to upload photos to computer. If you don't have a card reader, the easiest way is to buy a new cable - any standard MiniUSB cable will fit.

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.

Uploading video to computer from Kodak MX1063


Check the format of your video file, it may be hidden if it has different file extension for which your computer does not have the application to view.

Regarding your files got deleted, you might selected the option to move the files from your camera to your computer instead of copy the files.

Hope this helps.

Can't upload videos?!


You need to have Quicktime 7.0 because the files are saved as a MPEG4. Go to Apple's website and download and install the latest version of Quicktime. Once you do that, you can use any basic movie program (like Windows Movie Maker) or just copy it from My Computer.

Unable to view downloaded photos on camera screen


I had a Camedia 560 and it had this problem. Take a picture and then look at your memory card or camera from the computer. I think you will see that there is a complicated structure of folders - the pictures are in one folder and there is some kind of index file in another folder. The camera cannot display pictures restored from the computer unless you restore the index files as well as the picture files. Sorry I can't remember the details, but one way to do it would be to copy every last thing on the memory card. Not very convenient. This is a design flaw - my new camera doesn't have the problem and will display any picture I copy to it provided it was taken on the camera and not rotated or cropped. It doesn't mind other editing like putting a caption in the photo with a paint program. Panasonic Limix.
