Casio Exilim Z-9: Upload pictures from internal memory?
I just got this camera and found out the sales clerk sold me the wrong memory card! I've taken a few pictures that are stored on the internal memory of the camera but now the lens is stuck and won't go back in. I have to send it off for repair I guess, but is there anyway to upload the pictures i've already taken from the internal memory before I send it off? I have the program installed that came with the camera for uploading pictures but when I upload them they appear briefly then a message flashes saying it's unsupported. Does that mean they cannot be uploaded from the internal memory?

Don't think you really need to use the software do you? I think you can simply plug in the usb port and browse to "my computer", it should show up as a "removable device" in the dialog window, or may call it "Casio" or similar. Open it and browse to the pictures folder, and "copy, "paste" to your hard drive, but I'm only guessing...hope it helps :)

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 iPhoto or any other photo management program.
Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
All digital cameras I've ever seen do not run unsigned code (or any code for that matter) so it's very highly unlikely (or impossible) that your camera has a virus. It's probably just broken.
Put a different memory card into your camera and take a picture. If it doesn't work normally then your camera is likely broken. If it works normally then your original memory card is corrupt. If that's the case use a memory card reader (sold at Staples/Amazon/CVS) and try a program like Card Recovery, Digital Picture Recovery, or ZAR. You can usually get everything back if you didn't already overwrite everything by trying to take a bunch of pictures on a corrupt card.
If the camera itself is broken, just buy a memory card reader and get the pictures off through a computer or you can just go to a photo kiosk at any pharmacy. If you want to fix the camera, buy the parts online or buy that identical used camera from eBay in an As-is auction for next to nothing and swap parts with your own. Personally, I would just buy a new camera though. They're cheap.
Hi, Here is a tip that may help you with your problem....
I found out that with my cameraI needed to transfer the pictures within the camera to the card and them fromthe card to the computer... The process for your camera may not be exactly the same, but should be similar.
With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" (called "initialize" on some cameras) and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work properly.
You problem set your camera to use internal memory only. Set the memory function to memory card only and all pictures will go to the memory card until it is full. You can probably still transfer your pic files from internal memory to your card.
If you have a SD card, or any other in fact, you can get a card reader/writer at most electronics stores. This will enable you to use a card reader instead of using the camera to upload pictures.
I use a card reader all the time, and never (almost never) use a usb connecting cable to the camera to upload the pictures. One problem which can arise is that the camera may have internal pictures taken with no card. If this is the case, you can in most cameras, copy from the internal memory to the memory card. I realize that there are digital cameras which have no way to record to internal memory, only on the memory card whether that is a SD or some other kind.
As to your direct problem. Try to reset ALL in the internal menu.
