    Same problem. I have a mac at home and the cruzer works fine on that (I can add / remove files at my leasure) but when I put it in my work PC it won't let me drag any files onto it. Any help would be much appreciated!

How do i download from my sandisk card to my computor


Insert the card into a compatible card reader, either built-in to the computer or attached via USB/FireWire. 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 any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

When camera is plugged in the computer and is one, the charge lamp/flash lamp flashes and won't let you do anything like upload pictures etc. You have to disconnect from the USB port to have any function....


When the camera is connected to a computer, you can control the transfer from the computer. The camera is just a dumb slave when connected, leaving control to the computer.

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer when download pictures. 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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

How do i remove the write protect from kingstone flash drive


This seems to be the problem of most of us these days and some of our readers who wanted to know the methods how they can remove the Write Protected error from their USB drives like Pen Drives and memory cards.
usb-removable-disk-write-protected-300x181.jpg
What is Write Protected error and why it happens?
In the Write Protected error, we can't write or copy any data in our flash drives and even can't format the drive.
There are many reasons that cause this problem, let's see solutions of them.
Solutions:
• First of all try to locate a small switch (if any, that you may have not noticed) at some place on the drive or memory card reader. This is the prime reason for this error. If there is one, switch it to the other side to turn the protection off.
• Yes I know this problem is also occurring these days without this switch but not to worry. Just download this helpful software from here and run it to execute a "low-level format" on the drive. This software is quite handy and may take few attempts to actually remove the error.
• The problem can also be caused by some virus activity so just get it scanned by some updated good anti virus which may solve your problem.
• BUT if none of the methods listed above solves your problem then your pen drive might have gone corrupted, so just get it replaced.
Hope any of the methods listed above solves your problem.
Update 1:
After the low level format, you may need to "Partition the drive". Dont worry, partitioning a pen drive means allocating it its File System and Cluster Size that was lost after the Low Level Format.
For that:
  1. Run diskmgmt.msc in Run.
  2. In the disk management window, select the pen drive, right click on it and click on Format.
  3. Now choose the File System and Allocation Unit Size and do not check the boxes below.
partition_the_pen_drive.jpg Click OK and the drive will be reusable after this.
Update 2 (Better Solution):
Follow the steps in this post and just put the value 0 (zero) in step 5.
This will surely solve your problem now.

Copy images from pc to Lumix TZ5 SD memory card?


yes i m sure it would work if you use a card reader instead of using the camera directly connected.. in that case your memory card will just work as the usb hard drive and you can load anything into it..
