Consider 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.

SOURCE: View image files on my P90 display

Not really. Most cameras, including the P90, are designed not to show images not captured on that device (or at least the same model device). If it's a paper map, you could always try to photograph it. Photographing something off a computer screen is a little harder.

Cannot see pc MOV or JPG files on flash drive in Canon SX230


Thanks very much for responding to my problem.
It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing.
steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally.
2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7).
3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.

Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file.
2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy.
3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file.
5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck.
It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.

Saving images from S5 Pro directly to laptop hard drive -how?


Hello Brian,

Are you writing to the camera memory because your card is full?

I'm not sure what USB auto/fixed is meant to do but try this.

Connect you camera to the pc as normal and switch the camer on.

The camera may ask you if you want USB or pictbridge, choose USB.

XP Then tries to offer you the best way to get at the photos. Rather than use the transfer option us the open as a folder option.

If XP doesn't offer anything click and open my computer, look for your camera it will appear as a new hard drive.

Click on the new hard drive, normally with olympus you get a folder, the first is you camera memory, click on that you should see photo's and another folder.

Copy or cut and past the photo's to a new folder on your PC. The click on the last folder, should be you memory card, move those photo's as before.

Having copied all photos you can delete them from you camera memory and card using the PC. Just as you'd delete any file.

With luck you should be back in action, a whole card to fill................. Good Luck.

Uploads images to camera grayed out


Are you shooting in JPEG or RAW.

If Jpeg then you can just go into MY COMPUTER, the camera when connected should be recognised as a removable drive, just copy the images directly from your PC to the Card. If you are shooting in RAW then the chances are your digital frame will not recognise the file, convert to JPEG then transfer the same way. There may be a problem with the transfer process via the Canon Drivers, if you have a Card reader it is much easier to transfer the files that way.

Sending photos as an e-mail attachment


When sending photos as e-mail attachments, the image (file) size should not be too large. Use the included image viewing program called Image Expert to save photos in reduced size. For instructions on installing Image Expert, see "Installing the image viewing program" on page 42 of the Instruction Manual. 1. Launch Image Expert. 2. Choose "Open Image" from the "File" menu. 3. Specify the image you want to reduce, then click "Open". If the camera is connected using the USB cable, it is displayed as a removable disc. images on the camera can be opened directly by specifying the remove-able disc. 4. Click on "Change Size" in the "Image" menu. 5. Input values at "Width" and "Height", then click "OK". If "Keep Aspect Ratio" is checked, the size is changed without changing the image’s vertical:horizontal ratio. 6. The image is displayed at its new size. 7. Click on "Save As" in the "File" menu to save the image with the new size.

NEF Image will not open - Macintosh


RAW NEF images from Nikon cameras are proprietary formatted raw data directly from the cameras's sensor. If the images are improperly transferred to the computer they will not be able to be opened and will give an "Unsupported File Format" warning. Macintosh OS X has an "Image Capture" application (found in: Hard Drive/Applications/)that can be used to transfer images. If "Image Capture" is used NEF files will be corrupted and will not be able to be read. Only Nikon View, or manually dragging images from the mounted card, should be used to transfer NEF's. To disable "Image Capture": Double-click to open the hard drive and then the "Applications" folder Double-click "Image Capture" From the "Image Capture" menu choose "Preferences..." In the "When a camera is connected" pop-up choose "No Application" Close the Preferences window and Quit Image Capture After disabling Image Capture, it will not launch when the camera is connected and you can use Nikon View to properly transfer NEF images.
