Unable to restore memory space

I transferred about 35 pics to a mac and deleted them out of the camera. However, camera still says the 35 pics are there and I have only space for three more pictures. When I try to delete them, the camera says there is nothing to delete. If I take a new picture it shows up and I can delete that, but I can't get my memory space back. Frustrating. Any ideas?

Can i transfer pictures to my ipad

With a card reader, you can move all the photos from your digital camera to computer. After that, you can take advantage of iTunes to transfer photos to your iPad. This should be easy, but please note that the RAW files takes much more storage space than the JPEG files, so you'd better take a look at your storage space of your iPad before you import photos from camera to iPad.

You didn't actually transfer the pix, you created shortcuts to them. You'll have to have the camera attached to the Mac to delete the shortcuts. Then, move the files from the camera to the computer. That will clear the card, and insure you've actually got the files on the computer, not just shortcuts.

How do i get the pictures from my camera to the memory card

the question I ask is why would you want to do this?

The camera has XX Mb of memory in case the card becomes full. Generally one downloads the pics on to a PC and deletes the Camera files to start again

If you want to keep the pic files in memory and save them tpo your pc. remove the card for safety.. Interrogate your camera via the connection cord and the software it came with. Download the folder with the pics in memory to your PC. Then delete the files on the camera. Insert the SD card and In menu, set up to save files to SD card rather than memory while there is space.

Please rate my help++++Thanks fore using FIXYA

I need to recover deleted pics

I have had success with this... Download Asoftech Photo Recovery program

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Want to retrieve my pics lost in nikon cool pix s8

You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead. you can then download a file recovery program and use the program to scan the memory card and then recover lost pics

No memory space in memory stick

You can delete pictures from the camera. You can transfer the pics to your computer, then delete. Plug you camera into your computer, click start/computer/ double click on the drive that accesses your camera. From here, you can drag/drop pics or delete them or format the entire memory stick. If you need all of the pics and do not have a computer, you will need to purchase another memory stick.
