Just a thought - the microSD memory card is sometimes supplied with an adaptor. The microSD card is slid into the adaptor, which is a dummy standard sized SD card, so it can be used in a usb card reader with a PC or a laptop...
The user guide is not available online as a download. However installing an SD card is usually pretty simple. On this camera, the SD card slot is on the bottom inside the compartment where the battery is housed. Simply slide the door open, and locate the slot for the memory card. The memory card should only go in one way, so don't try to force it. If it doesn't fit fairly easily try turning the card around. Remember: the gold pins on the card go into the camera!
Probably the first thing to try is formatting the card. There is a function in the camera menus to do this. If it won't format or gives an error when you try, then there may be an issue with the connectors in the card slot or the card may be incompatible.
Maybe it is having trouble with the size of the memory. Memory cards have grown enormously in capacity in the last couple of years, and even relatively new cameras may not be able to cope with the memory size of the newest cards.
SD and SDHC cards fit the same slots, but many cameras won't work with the SDHC (high capacity) cards. SDHC is not backwards compatible.
From what I can see about this camera it looks to take a microSD memory card which is much smaller than a normal SD memory card. Like the ones that alot of cell phones use. Your user manual should tell you the exact location of the slot which is normally located in the battery compartment. Hope this helps.
The C813 uses SD cards. Be aware that SD cards top out at 2GB; any larger cards are actually SDHC cards. Even though SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they will not work. You can buy any of the major brands.
Yes you cannot transfer pictures without the USB cable since that is working like the 'bridge' for your camera and computer communication.
However, there is still another way on how you can get the pictures. That is to use a memory card reader. Most laptops now has that particular slot. Or you can buy a cheap memory card on the nearest PC store.
I imagine that is just the plastic plug for the bus port. Are you looking for a laptop memory slot or SD camera memory slot. These machines do not have an SD camera memory slot. You will have to get a USB adapter for it. They sell them at Walmart for approx $15. The laptop memory slots are located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. If there is only one slot there, then the other slot is under the keyboard.
Chances are that the contacts in the card slot are either dirty or worn out. First thing I would try would be to try blow out the card slot. I suggest caned air, You could use a straw and Puffs of breath, but keep it dry. If that doesn’t work put a lint free cloth over a piece of cardboard about the same size as a memory stick. Be vary careful that it is not thicker then the memory stick. Dampen the end with Alcohol (Denatured Alcohol is best but standard rubbing alcohol might work in a pinch). I repeat, dampen with alcohol not dripping wet. Remove the battery just to be sure. Insert the swab into the card slot a half of a dozen times when you pull it out look to see if you see any residue on the swab. Hopefully you see dark stripes on the cloth. Let the camera sit with an empty slot (and no battery) for a hour before you try it again. If all that fails the last chance (short of replacing the card reader) try to put some electrical tape on the memory stick on the side opposite from the gold contacts, be carful not to cover the contacts. Try one piece of type at a time and DON’T force the memory stick into the slot This will slightly increase the pressure on the contacts inside the card reader slot. If you have to resort to this be carful that the tape sticks completely and that it is neatly trimmed, you don’t want the type coming off inside the cameras. If this works you will need to add tape to all memory sticks used in this camera. I would NOT use any “taped” sticks in any other readers without removing the tape first.
