Question about Cameras

TZ5 with 4Gig SD card. Filled card was given 'DElete All' command. The DCIM folder,containing 101 PANA and 102 PANA was emptied, but another folder 'Arlene & Bo Collection' remained, (unbeknown to me at the time). Several new images were added, then viewed.On next attempted viewing I noted that the knob was not opposite iA, when I selected iA I found no new DCIM images were accessible. I added a further image, which was succcessfully viewed. On my computer the new image was visible along with the Arlene & Bo folder. I did nothing to trigger a full delete, after the original one. My questions are: 1. Do you have an explanation for the disappearance of the new images? Can they be retrieved? 2.Would deleting the Arlene & Bo folder, using my computer, at the time of the 'Delete All' have avoided this problem? 3.Can I safely continue to use the SD card? 4. What experience do you have of this 'sudden disappearance' problem?

If you got data loss , then the SD card may be damaged, better not to use this one to store important data or pictures.

SD cards are not expensive, buy a new one, format the old one, and keep the old one as spare.

When this app are not found, it usually because the folder where the camera is saved is not in the phone memory but instead in the internal SD memory.
You need a file manager, open the file manager and you should have 2 options, a. device b. sd card
Go to sd card and search for a folder named DCIM, if it's here thenit should be OK. If it's not, then tap device or just go back until you reach device, storage, sdcard1 or external storage, again, it all depends in the firmware and file manager that you download. If you see the folder DCIM in the external SD card or SD card1, then just move it back to internal sd or SD card0. Reboot and it should be good to go. If by any chance there is no DCIM folder, then just go to the PlayStore and download any camera that is free, this will create the folder.

Memory card full empty


first you should save the pictures to a computer. After you delete them they are gone forever.
But the view menu, you just press the menu button. In the most left tab, the third line is a bin. goto that line and press the arrow to the right. Then you can chose what you want to delete. Only one picture, pictures with a certain date, a folder or even all pictures.
it is in the English manual on page 101 and 102

How to delete photos


Put the card into the appropriate slot if you have a media card reader on your computer or get a SD to usb adapter for about $5. Open "Computer" the card should be detected as a drive. Browse to the media, might be in a folder called DCIM. Select photos and hit delete.

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.

Not able to 'delete' a picture from my Lumix TZ3


Sounds like a MobileMate quirk Tanya. Use your USB cable connection to your PC/Camera interface and delete pics that way too see if this funny goes away.

If it does, and I believe it will, then it is a SanDisk issue not revising the File Allocation Table(FAT) after deleting the Pic File on the mem card.

You could also find out if this is just an SDHC SD card reader issue by using an older less dense standard 1 or 2Meg non-SDHC mem card in the reader and see if issue goes away.

The fallback of course to view and delete the pics on the camera before download, or download pics then note which pic file numbers you want deleted after viewing on PC, then put SD card back in camera and delete them there.

Another option for trial, is to cut and paste the whole DCIM folder, or sub pic folder to your PC from off the SD card using the card reader. The camera automatically generates subfolders under the DCIM folder if you completely remove(deleting by a cut or move), when you take your first picture on a camera with a DCIM but not sub pic folder. Try this first and I think you will find all pics will be deleted from camera that are in a subfolder under DCIM. If not, then cut or move the whole DCIM folder and create a new DCIM(empty) folder on the SD card using the PC and card reader. Of course using this method you cannot selective delete individual pics from the mem card. You would be deleting them all after the Folder cut or move from the SD card.

How do I transfer photos from my computer to the digital fram memory card I'm having no joy in downloading pics from my new Technika SH-C350 digital camera. I have XP Pro V2002 Service Pack 2. The...


Well, I got around this problem (not a fix though) by (1) taking the SD card to a Klick shop and after being persuaded to buy a personalised Mug, found that they hadn't copied all my required pictures to their CD; then in desparation, I used my son's pc which has a card reader slot already on his tower and as his system contains a DCIM folder, hey presto, up popped all the pictures held on the SD card! Not fixed, but until someone tells me how to solve this problem, I'll just use my son's pc!
Many thanks! dinah_m

Downloading the photographs


To download without the software, you will need either the usb cord that came with the camera, or a memory card reader for your computer. For the first step, plug the camera into the computer and camera via the usb cable provided. put the camera in playback mode and turn it on. If you use a memory card reader, remove the card from the camera and insert it into the proper slot on the reader.
Now for PC users - go to 'my computer' (vista its just 'computer') and under 'media with removable devices' you should see the camera come up (or memory card folder). double click, and then you should see a folder that says DCIM. Click and drag that folder onto your desktop. Congrats, you just transfered your photos. Now the folder DCIM on your desktop should be opened and the folders within DCIM contain your images. Sort the photos in whatever way makes sense to you (most likely to be in my pictures (under my documents)). Be sure to delete the DCIM folder off the desktop AFTER you moved all of the images into their proper folders...otherwise next time you try to do this, there will be a conflict with folders named DCIM. This method keeps the images on your memory card. If you would like to remove them, after you re-insert the card into your camera, turn on the camera, press menu, go to the set-up screen (yellow) and go to format - this will erase every picture on your card and make a new slate for when you take new pics.

Memory card


When you use an SD card in mulitple cameras, each camera creates it's own folder beneath the DCIM folder. I'm not sure if you have a program that automatically opens when you insert the SD card in your reader, but perhaps you can try double clicking on "My Computer" and locating your reader/SD card and opening that folder manually. Once you're there, open the DCIM folder and see if there are multiple folders inside. Open each one to see if you can locate your pictures.

If you have a program that opens automatically when you insert the SD card you'll need to figure out how to tell it to look in other folders.
