How do I load scan disk pictures onto computer

If your PC has an SD card reader you can place the microSD card into the adapter that it came with and then insert it into the slot on the PC. The SD card reader will be a small slot usually at the front of the computer. If there is no SD card reader then place the microSD card into the gadget you use it with such as your camera/phone etc and connect the device to your PC using a cable the device came with. The cable will have a USB jack at one end that will fit into the USB ports at the front/back of your computer. Once your device is connected you can follow the on-screen instructions to access your pictures.

Im getting a Err 002 which means something is wrong with my CF. I have had it for 5 years and no problems until now. I tried to reformat but my camera will not let me into the menu option with the CF in...

I agree the problem is the CF card. I'd like to add that it must have several back to back corrupt files to be refusing formatting. As much as I teach/lecture not to do this I also agree that to save that card place it in a memory card reader and format the card in the computer. Check before hand to see if there are usable pictures and load them to a new file folder before formatting. Once formatting has been completed in the computer check that all pins are in correct and serviceable condition in the card reader slot in the camera before install it back into the camera. Then reformat the CF card in the camera. Each time pictures are downloaded to the computer a CF card should be formatted.
Deleting pictures just causes a huge amount of problems if done repeatedly in favor of formatting.
I'm including some diagrams to show where the formatting mode is located on your camera.
Best of luck
Hope this helps Happy New Year

How do i reformat a sandisk 2GB microSD card. keeps saying failed

Are you formatting it in a cell phone, a digital camera, or on your computer?

If you're formatting on a computer, be sure you have the microcard inserted into the adapter correctly. I would suggest you format the card in the device that you're using it in most.

XD card error

What happens, is the file is corrupted when the camera shuts down while saving the picture. If you have a card reader try saving the pictures on the computer using the reader. You may have to reformat the card (in the camera).
