    What make and model camera? Many cameras will not show pictures that were not taken with that camera, or were edited in any way.

No. As I stated in my original comment, many cameras will not display pictures not taken with that camera (or at least a similar camera). This is mainly out of self-defense. If the picture came from outside the camera then the camera has no guarantee that it can be displayed safely, so it simply refuses to try.

SOURCE: memory card stuck in camera slot

No need for pliers! I was able to eject the memory card by sliding a packing knife along the edge of the memory card. The blade was very thin, narrow, and long. I'm not sure if a regular box cutting knife blade would do. I've been able to eject the memory card with ease about a dozen times using this method.

Since I can't eject the SD card on the go, I use the USB cable to download images from the camera. Glad to know I can remove this when absolutely necessary, but sure wish I could remove anytime I'd like.

SOURCE: I inserted a 4GB SDHC

I assume that the camera is not compatible with SDHC cards and will only work with normal SD (upto 2GB) cards.

SOURCE: took sd card out to

I suggest that you make sure that you have successfully copied the photos to your computer from the SD card and then use the camera's format feature to reformat the SD card for the camera.
There's really no reason that you need to keep all of your photos on the SD card all of the time. As long as you backup your pictures and other data on your computer regularly, they will remain safe.
I found that the directions to format the SD card appear on page 75 of the user manual for this camera (click here for manual).
Thanks for using FixYa!

How do I download images from my surveillance camera?


You say you have 'activated SD format'. This probably means you have formatted the SD card, thus erasing all the images from it. To download images in the future, remove the SD card from the camera and insert it in a USB card reader attached to your computer.

How i copy photos from my pc to my panasonic lumix DMC F-3


You really can't. You can copy images on your computer to an SD Card and then insert the SD Card back into the camera. But, doing this after editing could mean that you will not be able to see those images on the camera anyway.

I can't view images on Internal memory when SD card is inserted.


Put the card in, then select "Copy" from the playback menu. You will then be given the option of copying individual images or all of them. See the instructions beginning on page 99 of the manual: http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digital_cameras/manuals/pdf/index/s/finepix_s5700_s700_s5800_s800_manual_01.pdf

We have inserted sd-ms card onto our laptop to upload the photos onto FB.however the card when inserted back onto the camera, about 50 over images show, incompatible jpeg?how do we solve this issue?


The computer uses a small program to be able to upload pictures from the memory card once the pictures are safely on the computer hard drive hopefully you created a file folder for them then the memory card needs to be formatted in the camera. Formatting the memory card cleans the card and makes it compatible to the camera again. Every time you download images to the computer the memory needs formatting in the camera. Any new memory card needs formatting in the camera a card that has been formatted in the computer needs to be reformatted in the camera. Also please be aware that there is a protection lock on the side of the SD card and if placed in the incorrect orientation will actually lock the card from formatting or deleting files on the card. I'm going to include a diagram here to show you where this little switch need to be for the "unlock" position.

Switch needs to be towards the top of the card in the direction of the gold contacts

When pictures are taken they are being stored on the camera. They do not go to the SD card.


You need to get rid of the pictures in the internal memory. If you want to save any of them, go into the menu and find "copy". You will find the option to copy them to a memory card. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"....follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then your card should work properly.

Sounds like you are not tackling this the right way.

The proper way is to connect your camera using a USB to mini-D connector direct to the laptop. Use the Import facility to transfer the images to a folder.

Failing that, you don't Copy and Paste, you Right Click Drag.

Insert the SD Card into the laptop slot or a Card Reader to USB. Open File Explorer. Click on the SD card at the bottom of the left hand pane. Highlight the images you want in the right pane, either individually, or multiple (hold down CTRL key, click each one, or hold down SHIFT key, click beginning of block and then end of block of images). Now the clever stuff, Right Click and Drag the images to the folder on the left of the two panes, release the Right Click and choose Copy Here, or Move Here.

I would transfer all the images to your laptop, Format the SD Card in the Camera, and then transfer any images back to the camera if you need, but really, the SD card should be for capturing the images and the computer hard drive for storage, plus backups to Memory Sticks or External Hard Drive.

You can also try using Windows to Repair the Drive (SD Card). Right Click on the SD Card, Properties, Tools, Check for Errors.

Upload images to SD card


I just purchased a frame and wondered the same thing. My computer has a slot for an SD card once inserted the computer shows the SD file. Then go into where you store the pictures highlight the picture one at a time in the picture file my program says copy to file click on it and shows the SD file as F file click copyit then downloads to the card. Done put SD card in frame worked perfectly.

Card Error


If you should see the warning message "CARD ERROR" in the LCD Display, please check the following: Always choose reliable quality SD Cards. Toshiba Digital Cameras are tested for maximum performance with Toshiba SD Cards, Delkin SD Cards and Panasonic SD Cards. These are leading brands in the development of standard SD technology. Performance by other brands of SD cards may vary. Check the LOCK switch on the SD Card. The camera can not save images to an SD Card when it is in the lock protected position. If the SD Card is NEW, it may be necessary to FORMAT the card. This only applies to NEW SD Cards. If you format a card with images, all images will be erased. You can FORMAT your card periodically to maximize capacity and erase 'unseen' files, please be sure to download all images before choosing FORMAT as all images will be erased. Your Toshiba Digital Camera is designed for use with SD Cards. MultiMedia Cards are similar in size and shape to SD Cards, although with close inspection you will find that SD Cards have a different 'PIN" connection configuration, are slightly thicker in size, and have a manual slide LOCK switch on the side. Toshiba Digital Cameras are not designed or guaranteed to accept MultiMedia Cards. Please be sure to look for SD Cards from Toshiba, Panasonic and Delkin, the leaders in SD Card Technology.
