Transferring pictures from old computer to blank SD card
We have an old computer that we want to junk, one problem though, there are 240 pictures on it that I want off first. Is there a way to get them off? This computer has no CD burning drive and no internet connection to update the USB device dtive, so the USB stick has been a no go. Please tell me there is a way to do this. We have a Nikon camera.
Re: Transferring pictures from old computer to blank SD...
I plugged my camera into the USB port in the CPU and reinstalled my Picture Project, into which the 240 pictures automatically imported from My Pictures. Then I turned my camera on and clicked Export JPEG and voila... they started exporting. I didn't know for sure if it had worked, since I could not actually view the pictures on my camera after that, but when I put the SD card in my other computer, they were on the card and I loaded them into My Pictures with no problem at all!!!

SD cards can fail. # years on a SD card may be all you'll get. Try another card to see if you can record pictures on it. If so, then the card has gone bad. If not , then the camera needs a repair shop.
Try removing theSD memory card from your camera and inserting the SD memory card into an USBmemory card reader then connect the USB card reader into the USB port of aworking computer. The computer will see this USB card reader and SD memory cardas an external storage device. You can open the camera photo folder and copythe photos to your computer.
there might not be a way of transferring picture within the camera. However the SD card _should_ have resolved the memory full issue. Plug the camera into a computer with its USB cable. Transfer the pictures to the computer and delete them off the internal memory. Assure that your SD memory card is functional by trying it in another camera or in the slot on a computer.
Have you tried using a card reader by removing the SD card/memory card from your digicam and inserting it in a card reader. It is much faster copying your pictures to your computer than transferring by installing/connecting the digicam to the computer. I hope this helps.
Your camera has a SD card slot. If you have one of these in your camera then it is just a matter of transferring them from the card to your computer. Most stores that carry the SD cards will have a card reader you can buy. You connect the card reader to your computer and insert your SD card into it. From there you can open up this card reader in MY computer, select your photos, right click and hit copy. The you open up the file you want to put them in (like my documents then my pictures) and right click again and go to paste. This wil transfer all those pictures you have selected onto your computer but they will still be on the SD card too. Hope this helps. The card readers cost about $20 give or take.
2 possible solutions. !. try using another SD card. if the one in the camera is full, you cannot take a picture. 2. Try another SD card for transferring, (and taking pictures) and try transfer of this card in another camera or reader, such as the one in photo print places.
