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

I cant find the DCIM folder in my polaroid camera


The camera will create that folder on a memory card when you use it. Do you mean you can't find that file on the card or when you plug in the camera with no card in it?
If it isn't on the card, in the menu options of the camera you can format the card and the internal camera memory, save your pictures first of course.
Formatting the internal memory of the camera and taking a picture should restore the DCIM folder.
And make sure the SD card is unlocked, there is a little slide switch on the side of it.

FORMATTING WILL ERASE EVERYTHING SAVE YOUR PICS FIRST!

If you cannot find the DCIM folder you may still have pics stuck on the card and/or camera, look into file recovery before you format anything.

I also do file recovery by the way.

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,
Sai.

Picture folder won't open


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.

Unable to view the pictures folder


Hi, I got the solution for myself. Initially I have enabled to view the hidden folder option and even then I was not able to see the folder, then later I have disabled the options Hide Extensions for Known file types and Hide Protected Operating system files. Then I could see the folder and able to retrieve the photos. Once I have taken my photos I have formatted my MMC card and it is working normally.

Memory card problems


what i did :
Tools>Folder Options...>View
i checked all options with title "display this and that kind of folders and files" and unchecked all "hide file" titles , and my real dcim folder appeared as transparent folder icon 100% usable.
if you already erased dcim.exe, try it anyway your folder should be there.

After copying your files from it format your memory card.

Mp3 problems


create a directory called MP3 and add your mp3's under it. It should already have a DCIM directory there for the images.

Folders come up on my screen


The data on the SD Memory Card can be broken up into five separate folders (where applicable): [DCIM]: The images in this folder (e.g. IMGA0001.JPG) are recorded in the JPEG format. [MISC]: Files in which DPOF Data has been set to the image are in this folder. Slide show data created by SD-MovieStage Ver. 2.5 are also stored in this folder (e.g. AUTPLY0.MRK). [SD_AUDIO]: Stores music data files (e.g. AOB001.SA1) recorded by the SD-Jukebox Ver.4. [SD_VIDEO]: MPEG4 moving pictures are recorded in ASF format (e.g. MOL001.ASF). It can be played back with Windows Media Player 6.4 or later. [SD_VOICE]: Folder in which voice data files (e.g. MOB001.VM1) are stored.
