Be aware, jpg is an universal format, for pictures. It is not so all pictures have the same format and information. Your Polaroid can cope with a certain format of pictures. That is with the correct amount of pixels and he correct RGB settings, as your Polaroid camera produces.
It is not a computer. When you connect a printer to a computer, with the print program, the program can transform any picture size to any print size and also can work with RGB and sRGB, or even more challenges. I'm not even sure the Polaroid will accept pictures in the same format, if to a certain code is in the jpg.
If your pictures show up blurry on the computer, either they are not focused or you need to switch your camera to a larger format. When you look at a picture on a 2X2 screen, what looks clear will lose purity when you blow it up. If your pictures are 500K they will only look good when they are small. If you set the camera for 1.5MB, they will look good when they are enlarged. Compare the pictures taken by a cell phone with those taken with a 10MP camera. You will see the difference right away.
Without knowing the camera make and model I can only suggest you check your owners manual on how to format your memory card, your manual may also call it initialize. I'm also going to include a diagram that shows the SD sliding lock, if this lock is in the lock position a whole sea of problems can "pop" up. the lock function is there top protect pictures or files on the card from being deleted by mistake. However sometimes these annoying little trouble makers get pulled down into the lock position. Here is the diagram. Remember check the lock and then format/initialize your memory card also after each time you download your images from the camera or the optional card reader you must format the memory card to have the camera properly function with the memory card.
First off don't format that card or take anymore pictures on top of what you have. If you were attempting to download from the camera to the PC/Mac the computer may not have recognized the camera. Can you still see the pictures on the camera in playback or preview mode? If so then the pictures are there. You should purchase a Memory card reader, remove the memory card from the camera plug the reader into a USB port and then put the memory card into the reader. Your computer will see this as an external mass storage device and possibly (depending on your operating software) put a Hard Drive icon on your desk top. Opening this hard drive will reveal your pictures. Going back to the camera and playback or view image mode if you don't see the pictures I'd suggest (not knowing where you are) you could go into a place that does digital printing and ask them to insert your card in a machine and it will open the files for you these then can be burned to a CD and then put in your computer to view.
If the camera was working properly while taking the pictures on this card then the problem lies with the card. Format the memory card, formatting the memory card cleans previously taken pictures and allows for new pictures to be made. Even if you are using a "new" card it needs to be formatted to the camera it's being used in. Your camera dates back to 2004 so a problem I recently ran into with my own camera was I needed to update the "firmware" when I tried to use a memory card larger then 2gig. If you have just purchase a new card and it is larger then what you have been using this might be the case as well. The card error message may also be caused by removing the memory card from the computer without "ejecting" or "safely remove" which shuts off the connection to the card then disconnect. Another reason is if the user constantly deletes pictures and doesn't format. Hope this was helpful not not confusing.
Your mistake was in assuming your camera would recognize any information your computer put on the card. It won't because of the difference in the operating systems. To get your card to work properly in your camera again, you will have to format it in the camera.
The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this AFTER you've recovered the photos.
You will need to use a USB flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're inexpensive these days with cost not an issue (around $2 for an SDHC portable). Just make sure that the reader that you purchase states that it's capable of reading SDHC cards.
