I am trying to delete photos from a sim card on my computer, do i delete the checked off ones?

Hello, Use mouse to RIGHT CLICK on the photos you don't want and click DELETE. This should do it.

Yes you can, and I do it all the time. I copy the pictures to "My Pictures" folder. If you OPEN the DCIM folder by clicking on it, then SELECT ALL, then choose copy. Now close your camera folder. and OPEN "My Pictures" and then choose PASTE, all your pics should be inserted into "MY PICTURES". The reason your pics are deleted even after you've renamed them is because your OS is only copying them as shortcuts. If you don't want to copy or paste, next time you try to save one of your pics, hold down the shift key while dragging your pic to your folder and it won't move it as a shortcut. Hope this helps.

I accidentally deleted all the pics on my camera. Is there anyway that I or anyone can retrieve the pics?? Thank you! Phyllis

If you deleted and not formatted them, and you have not shot any more pics on the card, there is software you can purchase that will recover most if not all of your pics. Just Google "picture recovery software" and you will find many examples.

Memoyfull how do i empty it

You should have a pic review when the canera is powered on. Some cameras have a review only power switch that allows the screen to view pic s but not turn on the camera. there should be a delete button that once you are reviewing your photos you can delet one at a time or it will say "delete all" click delete all and enter to delete all. if you can find no review or delete buttons they will be in the main menu. Good luck!!

Photos are saved out of order. I take 100 pics, delete 15 or so, and when I take another pic, it is out of order, basically taking the spots of the photos that were deleted. Any suggestions?

The file system that is setup gives a file name to each picture as they are taken. so like pic001, pic002, pic003, and so on.

so if you take those three pictures, and delete the second one, it does not rename all the pictures after it. It will just fill the hole. So for example,

you take three pics.

pic1 pic 2 pic3.

then you delete pic2.

pic1 --- pic3

Then you take your fourth pic, it becomes pic2, because that space is empty.

That is how the camera is programed. I don't believe there is any way to change it.

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.
