    Hiya thanks but they are already saved as JPEG's, its a bit strange as it has allowed me to do some but not any more and they have all been saved the same.

  • thewuns Feb 16, 2009

    The pictures were taken with an Olmpus camera and then put onto my laptop, some have been scanned on. I'm trying to put them onto a memory card to put into a digital photo frame. Strangely some have transferred with no problem but some wont go on as it states the directory or file cannot be found. They are all saved as JPEG's. I'm so confused!!!

    My problem has nothing to do with a digital frame. I am trying to transfer pics onto a new sandisk 2 gb mem card. I was able to load 324 MB but I get the error " the directory of file cannot be created" when I try to load more pics from my computer to the memory card.

Also check the manual that came with your frame and make sure the picture fall into the right specifications for a JPEG file. Some have resolution restrictions as well as size restrictions.

If you convert them to JPEG then you will be able to store alot more, The newer the camera the bigger the picture size.

To do this, simply open the picture in Paint, and Press save and save the file type as JPEG and over write the file

hope this helps

How do I download apps from google playstore to SD Card in my model #Z768G Android


you need to find or buy micro sd usb card reader/writer
put the card in the reader, either copy it or drag the file to the sd card reader and the music of file will copy, than after you are all done doing that make file in the directory copy all the info you put on your sd card as a backup file.

I cant open my sd/mmc card reader and writer.


Some SD and MMC have a security feature in them. If so you will need the disk that came along with it. After you install it then that's the time you can fully utilize your SD/MMC. SD means Secure Data / MMC means Multi Media Card.
If your card reader is not appearing in the My Computer then check if it is detected in the Windows device manager. Go to START > CONTROL PANEL > DEVICE MANAGER. Usually it is under the category of Disk Adapters or Human Interface Device. If it's not present then unplug and plug the device back in. Or try a different USB port to see if that will work. If it doesn't then most likely the reader is defective. But if it is detected and still not able to read the SD/MMC and the SD is being read by a different computer then the issue could be that the SD is not compatible with the reader.

I got the message "Your Disk is Write Protected" when i go to format. How i format my Transcend disk. Please help me. Thanks.


Removing the write protection depends on the source of the problem.
Broadly speaking, it can be any of the following scenarios
  1. There is a write-protection tab on the mini sd card HOLDER. Every time you insert this into your PC or card holder, this tab slides to the write protect position. Either keep resetting, inserting & reinserting until it doesn't slide or tape it down.
  2. There is nothing wrong with the mini sd card. Simply locate the write protection key and push it.
  3. The mini sd card has some error: Go for a low level formatting.
  4. The card has virus: Remove the virus. The link for the steps is present in the related link at the bottom of the article.


There is an easy way to solve this problem: Simply put the yellow lock in the middle of its slider. No sticky tape required, as shown below. But if your still having the same problem i suggest you try the sticky tape.

problem is only that small moveable yellow lock switch is not making, just put sellotape over it maybe two layers needed to make switch.
== Answer == Even though what is written below may work, the problem is probably that on the card reader (if you have one) there is a small switch that has lock written on the side. If this is pushed down, the drive is write protected, push it in the opposite direction and it may fix your problem I had the same problem with several cards but eventually found a way around it. DON'T buy a new one!

Make sure the SD card lock is 'off' and then use thin, opaque sticky tape (ie non see-through; eg insulation tape) to cover the whole gap but keep clear of the metal contacts at the back.

Your card should work fine now... don't know why this has to be done, but it works! Additional info:
Reason #1,
the mechanical lock switch accidentally moves to the "locked" position during insertion due to the poor quality of the switch. Hence, by taping it, you are actually preventing the lock switch to travel towards the lock position. i.e. downwards.

Reason #2
If the above fails, it is likely your SD card reader/writer's fault. But don't discard it or buy a new one yet. Allow me to explain the mechanical design of the SD card lock mechanism. So that you may choose to repair it if you want to. You will need a small paper clip and screw-driver to open your card reader. (Don't proceed if your card reader is still under warranty, please return/exchange with manufacturer) There is a mechanical switch very much like a micro push button (I wish I could show you the picture/drawing). Anyway, depending on the position of the lock switch. You either push or release this micro push button inside the SD card reader.
Due to mechanical wear and tear, or some forceful insertion of the SD card, the micro push button is in its "open" circuit position, i.e. write-protected. In order to make the SD card reader writable, we will need to "close" the circuit. (Note: this is an irreversible process as I will be telling you how to remove the write-protection feature of your SD card reader. Once you do this, you would be unable to use the SD card lock switch to lock your data. So, just be careful not to accidentally delete your data)
To proceed, you need to remove the main circuit board from the SD card reader/writer enclosure. The location of the micro push button switch is the same location as the unlock position of the SD card when inserted in the SD card reader/writer. From the BACK of the exposed SD card reader, insert the unfolded paper clip (same way when you try to poke something like a device reset button) except, that it has to be long enough to allow the micro switch to touch together for contact. Then insert the SD card. Once the contact is "closed", your SD card reader/writer can write again. I understand that without a drawing, this may not be very helpful. Please provide suggestions or better explanation if you can. Thanks.

Or, just tape the lock switch to unlocked. This also works for SD cards in normal size. back up all the files u have on ur card then follow these steps

1. Go to Control Panel
2. Go to Administrative tools
3. Go to Computer management
4. From the tree menu on the left select Disk Management
5. Now on the right side you will have a list of all storage devices connected to your computer. Select the one that is your mini SD card. BE CAREFUL WHEN CHOOSING THIS BECAUSE YOU COULD FORMAT YOUR HARDDRIVE. Double check the name in My Computer
6. Right click on the SD card and select format. A new window will pop up showing format options. Select FAT32 from the file system drop down and check the quick format option and then click on OK
7. Enjoy your mini SD card without that annoying write protection

I want o put pictures back on my camea that are saved to my computer


You will need a card reader/writer, which are usually very inexpensive and found in any camera shop. You just have to place your SD or CF card in the reader and copy your files to it as if it was a USB key. Make sure it is a reader/writer device, because there are some that only read the cards, but won't write back.

I am the owner of a Pentax Optio and have just purchased a computer with Vista package. I can't transfer my 'photos onto the computer. Can you help?


The Best thing you could do is buy an SD Card reader, the SD card plugs into the card and the card (via USB) plugs directly into the computer.

The photos then come up as a USB drive.
