Only 18 out of 300 images are shown on my laptop. HELP!
The first assumption is that you can see all 300 pics on you camera. If this is correct, then they must be in one of two places:
- in the camera memory
- on the memory card.
The next assumption is that you are connecting the camera direct to your laptop. So:
Take out the SD card and see if the pics are still on the camera. From what you say, they should not be.
If they ARE NOT - then get a card reader. Get one anyway, they are always useful. Now plug the card reader in, put the SD card into the reader, and now look at it. You don't say what laptop, or what operating system, so it has to be whatever you would normally use to look for files. See if there are any extra folders that could be holding your pics.
If the pics ARE still on camera, then maybe the card write-protect switch is set to read only. If this is the case, get another card, format it in the camera, and copy the pics onto the new card. Now put that into the card-reader, and see what folder and file structure you have.
Your camera only has 16mb of internal storage and that is not a lot. Maybe only 40 low quality JPEG files. So if you can see all 300 or so, they should be on the card and not the camera. If the laptop file system cannot find them, them maybe the H-P software can. Three folders does not sound a lot for 18 pics unless they are high quality JPEGs.
My guess is that they are on the card, and the camera to PC link is not picking up the card.
