Memory Error


ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

Why wont my computer recognize my sandisk memory card anymore


Sometimes it happens that your slot doesn't work you can use a another option like Olympus LS-10 digital recorder as a card reader for accessing the data. Insert the SD card in your LS-10 digital recorder then connect the recorder to the computer with a USB cord then it will show you two options for the onboard storage inherent and one for the SD-Card. Select first photoshop elements to read the card and then Windows Live photo Gallery to view and copy your photos.

My G12 is not recognized by computers so I cannot download my photos. Is it just a chord issue?


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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). 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 management program such as PIcasa:

I receive a "communication error"


To address the present problem make sure the camera is off before plugging in the cable either to the computer or the camera. Also make sure the batteries are up to charge, low batteries or batteries that fail during file transfer will corrupt the memory card. With batteries up to charge plug the cable into the camera and the other end into a USB port and turn the camera on. Now, I would like to suggest that you invest in a memory card reader these are fairly inexpensive and can be bought as a single reader for the type of memory card you have or as a multiple card reader for pretty well every memory card that's on the market. To use a Card Reader it plugs into a USB port and the memory card is removed from the camera and inserted into the card slot. The computer recognizes this card reader as an external hard drive and files can be transferred to your computer Hard Drive with ease. One thing you must remember with any external device and that is you need to do a safe disconnect or eject make sure the device is shut off and the file information is downloaded before you remove the memory card or the files/card can become corrupt. Okay once the transfer is completed insert the memory card back into the camera and format the memory card. Don't delete the pictures at this point Format the memory card. Every time you download the pictures to the computer Format the memory card.

Communication error


If your SD memory card contains more than 1,000 images, the camera will display "Communication Error". Use a card reader (if available) to import your images into the computer, or see about having some CD's made at a photofinishing business.
