If the DCIM folder is where the camera keeps its images, then you have no images on the card.

Otherwise, have a browse through the memory card for another folder. The folders are named differently depending on your camera. My Pentax keeps them in "DCIM", but Kodak (for example) might keep them in a different folder.

    Oh, and Samsung will probably be different again. If they're on the card, you'll find them =-]

    If there are only two folders, that's fine... the pictures would be in one of them.

    If you put the card back into your camera, can you view the pictures from the card? I want to be 100% sure that they are still there before trying to figure out why they wouldn't show up in Windows.

    Ah... ok.. That *is* odd.

    open the drive/card on your computer, so you can see the two folders.

    Go edit, select all (both folders should be highlighted)

    Right-click on one of them, and properties

    You should have two checkboxes. (read only and hidden)

    If Hidden is grey, check it so that it is white with no tick or grey.

    Hit OK.

    Try looking in the folder again.

    Perhaps go over it again, and make sure the checkbox is totally clear. It sounds like you turned it on, which hid the mp3 folder. =-]

    Failing that, if you can give me remote access to your computer (IP address and user/pass) I can have a shot at it myself.

Hi I copied my dcim folder full of pictures to a sd card in my samsung s4 phone... then when i tried opening the files on my phone (sd) all dcim files was corrupted and my dcim file is now a ?cim file

Hi, your spelling problem makes it hard to tell what you are trying to say. I get the point that the files were corrupted after you transferred. Did you transfer them manually? Next time, you may try use some third-party software to copy pictures to SD card. See if that will help.

How do i transfer photos from phone to laptop without it transfering all my files

Connect your usb cable to your laptop and a popup dialog box should appear asking what you want to do with the device, choose open folder to view files. If a popup does not appear go to Computer or My Computer and you should see the phone as a storage device, double click it and you should see all kinds of folders in there. You are concerned with pics so focus your attention on a folder named DCIM...

Navigate to DCIM and open that folder, this is the folder that contains your pictures. Press the control (CTRL) key and select the pictures you want by left clicking each picture one time or go to the top of the DCIM folder and click EDIT > Select All, once the pics are highlighted make sure your mouse cursor is over any one of the highlighted pics right click the mouse and select copy or cut, (cut will remove the pics from the phone , copy will do just that, copy), navigate to where you want to put the pics and open that folder, right click on an open area within that folder and left click Paste from the popup menu.

That's it.

How I download pictures from my galaxy phone to my computer?

Plug phone into computer with USB cable and then press the Connect USB Storage button.
then you want to open the second autoplay that comes up. choose Open Folder to view files.
Open the folder DCIM and then the Camera Folder, this should be all your pictures that you can copy and paste over. I like to used Dropbox to transfer my photos. then you don't have to connect any cable and search for pictures you just transfer over the internet and it will sync to your computer. It is nice to also get files put on your phone from your computer too. If you would like to try it please use this link DropBox and you can find it in your Android Market for your phone.

My memory card is full and I want to transfer to my computer. I tried to transfer to internal memory but it says there isn't enough space. Anyway to transfer all at once instead of tagging individual...

Connect you camera to the computer using the USB cable. It will be shown as a removable drive(If the autorun is enabled windows should list the option to transfer pictures.Choose this option if it does so). Open the drive and and transfer the pictures to your computer.

Hope this helps,

DCIM folder turned to a file after windows scandisk fixed a reported problem

Hi, I don't know if you'll get this message, but it's worth a shot. I am having the same problem and I wanted to see if you ever found out how to get your pictures back. I don't have the same camera as you but the same thing happened to me. I'm on Windows 7 though now. Thanks

Unable to transfer pictures

Just get a card reader and insert the smart card from the camera into it. It will show up as a drive on you computer. Go into the DCIM file and your pictures will be in there.
