Question about Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

I can't upload pictures to my computer

I can upload pictures from an external hard drive but not from my camera. I haven't had any problems with this for 2 years, but now, all of a sudden, it's not working. I even tried removing the memory card and inserting it into the computer, but the computer won't read that either.

Sounds like a corrupt card Sometime a format may help but you will loose all the images on the card.

SOURCE: Camera won't read memory card!

Hi there and welcome to FixYa. There could be a couple of things off the top of my head that could be giving you the problem, so we'll try solutions for them both.

A) Go into the menu of your camera and format your cards. Your camera won't save pictures to a card properly if you don't format it first. - Go into the Setup menu for this. And remember, you have to format the cards in the camera, don't use your pc or a card reader.
B) The above will take care of your problem unless.... your cards are locked. SD cards have a switch on the side of them so you can lock the card (it prevents accidental erasure). In that case, unlock it with the switch on the side. Let me know with a comment if you have any questions or problems, or if either of these solutions doesn't do the trick.

When you fist connect the camera, the computer performs an initial scan of all the images on the card. This can take a while with slower cards and if there is a lot of images, slower again. Sometimes an error on the card may even slow things down as well. If you manage to get your pictures off the card, try formatting it using the format option in the cameras menu and see if that improves perfomance. Otherwise a better card may be in order.

SOURCE: Camera reading memory card error, cannot get it to work. Tried removeing the card and replacing batteries. Checked and it is not locked.

try formatting the card once on a pc and then plug it in your camera....if that does not help either, you'll have to try a different card.

Remove the memory card from the camera. Note that there is a small slide switch on one of the long edges of the card. Slide the switch to unlock or lock the card.

SOURCE: Loaded new memory card, and screen reads memory

I'm guessing you bought a new 4GB SDHC card. Although it looks exactly the same as a standard SD card, the format the card uses is very different. If your camera is more than a few couple years old, it's likely it was designed before the SDHC format came out. Sorry, but a SDHC card will not work with older cameras.
For older cameras, you'll need to use standard SD cards (usually those 2GB or less). But if you really want to use a 4GB card, do a Google search for 4GB SD "non HC", with the non HC in quotes. Believe Transcend makes one.

Can I retrieve pictures back to chip after uploading to computer? I accidently hit delete from chip when I shouldnt


You should be able to. Use your photo-processing software, bring up each image, choose "save as" and save them back on the chip as the destination. There's no particular reason to do this, however, as the photos will not improve in resolution beyond their state on the computer. It's easier just to back them up on a USB drive or external hard drive if you just want "insurance" copies.

How to upload images from olympus vr-310. I haven't driver


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as iPhoto, Windows Photo Gallery, and Picasa.

When I go to upload my pictures to my computer, it tells me the some pictures are already in my address book, not sure what that is, but all the pictures are new. It uploads maybe 2/3 of the new pictues...


Personally I wouldn't be using the camera software if it's deleting images without the command to do so.

What you can do is purchase a card reader with multiple memory card ports that way when you do get another camera the reader will have the port for the memory card.

Anyway the reader plugs into a USB port on your computer and looks at the reader as an external hard drive (Mass storage device) Depending on your operating system you should have an application called "My Documents" Open a new folder I generally use the date and img. then insert the memory card into the reader and the computer will either bring it up on the desk top as a hard drive or you may need to co fetch it in "My Computer" (I don't know your system) once that's done you can open the picture files copy and paste them into the new folder. Then you just need to open your camera software program and click on open and go to that file.

Once you have your pictures secured on the computer Hard Drive then format the memory card.

Formatting clears all the surface and makes the memory card ready to accept new picture data.

I suspect you have been deleting pictures and deleting pictures again and again well, you should be formatting after each time you download the pictures to the computer.

I know that will solve the problem and you can use the same system when you get a new camera

Hi, i am trying to upload the picture on my camera (finepix S5700) unto my computer but it is not working, do i need to download the software first or what should i do.


Downloading the software shouldn't be necessary to download the pictures to your computer Hard Drive. Depending on your computer operating system be it PC or Mac it should handle your download as if it was an external hard drive or device. Saying this there are still a lot of "old" Windows program still in operation but if you have Windows XP home edition or newer then no problem. Mac's have a mind of their own and will look at the link as an external Hard Drive.
Maybe what the problem is the sequence in which you are attempting to download. Fist make sure the camera has sufficient power for the transfer of data, then turn it off connect the mini USB cable to the camera and the USB cable end to a computer USB port (nothing will happen at this point.) What I then do is make a folder in My Documents or (Finder) if you are a Mac, and title it with something that relates to the images which will be inside I generally use a month, day and date. At the end of the year (coming soon) I'll make a folder with the year and all the 2010 Months folders will be placed in there. Okay once you have a place to put the picture files turn on the camera in a few seconds the PC may say found a new device and then may put the external device icon on the desk top if not you need to go fetch it from system preferences. Open the file highlight the files and copy them click on the new folder you just made and past them in there. Check see if the picture files are there and then eject the external device/hard drive remember to turn off the device before shutting off the camera and disconnecting the USB cable. If it's a Mac once you turn your camera on the external Hard Drive Icon will appear on the desk top follow the same thing as with the PC. Then once you have "ejected the Hard Drive and the icon has closed shut the camera off and remove the USB cable. Wait you aren't done yet, now you need to format your memory card. Formatting the Memory card cleans the card of the old pictures and provides and clean medium to load new picture files to. Have fun Robert from Canada

My coputer isn't recongnizing my camera? Please help as I have pictures i would like to upload


Normally you would connect the camera to the computer via the mini USB cable then turn the camera on. The computer will see a new storage device and consider it as an external HD an icon should appear somewhere on your desktop. Before you do all this create a folder in "My Documents" when you open the camera/hard drive copy the folder and paste it in the new folder you just created.
The eject the camera hard drive icon and remove the camera the image files are now on your computer hard drive.

Instead of using the cord to upload pictures from camera to computer, is there a device similar to a flash drive that I can use to upload pictures to the computer from my Fuji FinePix J10 Digital Camera?


Hi,

You can download pictures from your camera to your computer by using a memory card reader (You can use your computer's built-in memory card reader, if it has one, or you can purchase an external memory card reader as shown in the attached image).
6b262ef.jpg
To do this, kindly remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into a card reader. Connect the card reader to the USB port of your PC (if you are using an external card reader).
Now, the memory card will be shown as a "Removable disk" in "My Computer". You can browse the images and copy the images to your computer.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa.

Is there any way to download images from an Olympus stylus tough 6000 to a flash drive or external hard drive without using a computer?


You can download images to a personal photo backup device such as an Epson P5000 (which is essentially a screen, batteries, hard drive, and just enough computer to transfer the pictures).

In general, the answer is no. The camera doesn't contain enough circuitry to do this, and neither do flash drives or most external hard drives.

If you need to back up your photos while traveling and don't want to carry a laptop computer, make sure you have adequate memory cards. And if you can find an internet cafe, you may be able to burn the pics to a CD/DVD and/or upload them to an internet site.

Where do i get the software online to get my pictures uploaded


Get your pictures off your camera to a website, or your hard drive?

I will assume your hard drive, so first make sure you install your camera drivers so computer recognizes your camera when you plug it in.

Download picasa software from google, It is free, and that will import your pictures from your camera to your hard drive, and also let you upload your pictures to the web right from within picasa program.
