    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

    ok then, maybe try ringing them all back to your laptop and formating the memory card?

SD card not recognized



What happens when you tried to plug-in SD card to the computer?


Have you made any recent changes to the computer prior to the issue?


To make the SDHC be recognized by the computer, we need to ensure that the card reader works in Windows 7 first. Please check if the card reader is recognized properly by the computer and you have installed the driver for it.


Meanwhile, you can plug some other storage cards to the card reader and see how it works.


I would suggest you to refer the link below
A Secure Digital (SD) card may not be recognized on a Windows 7 based computer.

Uninstall all the Generic USB drivers and reinstall.


1. Open Device Manager.

2. In "Disk Drives" dropdown, uninstall the "Generic SD/MMC USB device" drive.

3. Restart computer.

4. Insert SDHC card.




Hope this helps.

My PNY HCSD 8GB card wont read in any of the various photo printers ive tried it in but will read in cameras and computers. its not locked and the previously mentioned printers have no problem with any...


There could be many reasons for this problem..
1. The card is just too big - some readers can only cope with 2 or 4 Gb max.
2. The card's transfer rate may not be compatible - there are many differing speeds at which they can run and not all readers can cope with it.
Have you tried connecting the camer to the printer via USB? pic-bridge etc. will use the camer itself as a card reader avoiding compatability issues.
Hope this helps.

How to transfer music or pictures from my loptop to micro memory card


Many laptops have an SD card reader. If you do have one, you will need an SD adapter to plug the card in and then to put it in the laptop's card reader. If you do not have one on your laptop you will need to buy an SD card reader and an SD adapter.

Alternatively, you can try putting the microSD card into your phone or digital camera (if it does support one) and connect your phone/camera to the computer to access the data on the card.

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 dont know where to put this


Hi, First insert the micro SD into its adapter which resembles a SD card itself but has a small opening at the bottom to insert the micro SD. The adapter should not b locked while inserting or removin the micro SD. Now insert the adapter in the card readers slot which should be connected to a PC via a USB. If its a card reader then insert the adapter with microSD in the right side top corner of the card reader with the adapters copper pins facing down. OR if u already have slots in ur CPU to insert the SD card install it there, Now transfer files to ur card happily. NOTE: Rename ur device so that next time when u plug it in the adpter n connect it to PC, u wont get confused. Just right Click on the drive icon in ur PC n select rename n just giv any name as u lik. Rate he soln dude Bye..........!
