Re: moving photos

Sorry, no. You can use a card reader to put the pictures on the card. Bear in mind that if you've done any editing on the photos then the camera may not display them.

SOURCE: Memory Card Error

I am assuming that the camera continues to work fine with other cards, so the problem is only with the card, not with the camera.

To try to retrieve pictures, get yourself a USB SD card reader&writer (under $10 on eBay), plug it into your PC, and see if the files are readable that way.

If the files are readable, find the folder with JPG files, and simply move them to computer.

If the computer starts freezing every few seconds while you are accessing the card, or the move process is dealing with one file for a very long time (over 10 minutes), the card has physical problems, and there is a chance that things may not be recovered. Try moving each file separately. I did a quick search for you: "recover sd card files" - I found a few shareware utilities that would try to recover corrupted files, starting with "Card Recovery 3.50".

Once you are done with the recovery, determine if the card is usable in the future. Format the card using the camera (look for the option in Menu), take it out and use USB card reader to fill up the card with any junk from you computer, and then try to copy it from the card again onto your computer (create and use a junk folder). If this fails, look for a way for way to exchange the card under warranty, if you have any. Otherwise, the card may not be compatible with the camera (although unlikely). Test it by taking lots of test video and test pictures just to fill up the card, and try to read it. If everything is fine, and you want to take the risk, the problem may be a one time issue and will never happen again. Otherwise, use the card for something else.

Good luck!

It coud be a very common IRIS/Shutter stuck problem...this has been reported on lot of S3 IS & S2 IS cameras... just search for this on web and you'll find a temporary solution also (related to taking battery out in the middle of taking picture during a long exposure (15" in Tv mode), but for more permanent fix you need take it back to Canon service center

On your computer make sure you are looking at the correct folder. This is a common problem.
Another thing is if the camera is shooting the pictures in the RAW mode, you will need the proper software in the computer to see the RAW format pictures.

SOURCE: How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera

Could be that you have the wrong memory card.
SD600 will only work with the old SD cards, but the SD780 will take the SDHC cards.
SDHC was intended to give 4gb or more of storage, while the old SD started as 16 mb.  Different cameras have different limits, but it is always best to assume that the practical limit on an SD card is 2mb.  Even if the SD780 will take the SDHC cards, it can be more practical to only carry 2GB SD cards and know that they will fit either camera

I have an empty sd card. How do I move my photos to it?

Two ways. Put SD card in camera and connect camera to computer. Open Windows Explorer and you will see the two volumes in the camera, one empty and one with images. Right click, drag Copy Here or Move Here from the one volume to the other.

Or by a USB card reader. Save images from camera to computer and then from computer to the card.

I deleted my photos from my sony DSC-S930, i want to retrive it

I have had success with this camera photo recovery software... Download the program

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

How do you download pictures from my camara to my hard drive or flah drive. I have a finepix F80EXR.

Two choices, if you have an SD card reader, take the card out of the camera, and put it into your card reader. If you don't have a reader, you can get cheap ones from Amazon or the like, just type "SDHC card reader".

If you still have the USB connecting cable for this camera, wire it up to your computer.

Then in "My Computer" (Windows), you can browse the SD card as if it were another hard drive on your PC. This means you can copy, delete, move photos from the card to your computer's storage device.

Need help with moving pictures from internal Kodak Z740 to SD card


You will need to use a computer, there is no option for direct transfer from internal memory to SD card.

Remove the SD card from inside the camera and connect the camera to the computer using an USB cable. With no SD card the computer will show the pictures stored in camera's internal memory. Copy the pictures in the internal memory in computer hard disk, then eventually move them onto the SD card.

How to move photos stored on SD card into computer

Take the card and put it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). 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 Picasa ( )..

Internal memory to memory card

Generally, it's not possible to move images from internal memory to a memory card, which poses a problem because you can't connect that camera to your computer.

Most digital cameras keep the internal memory separate from the memory card. Not sure why, but they do.

It's unlikely that you'll be able to get those photos off, if the camera isn't recognized by the computer.

How do I download my pictures without the cd

Usually you don't need any special software to download photos from most digital cameras. Try connecting your camera to the computer with the USB cable and then going to My Computer and seeing if the camera shows up as an additional device or hard drive on your system. If so, you can just manually copy or move the photos from the camera to the computer. You can also use free software such as Irfanview. to copy or move the photo files from your camera to your computer, and to view and edit your photos on the computer.

You can also remove the SD memory card from the camera and then put it in a memory card reader on your computer, and copy the files that way. If your computer doesn't have a built-in SD memory card reader you can buy one - they are very inexpensive, under $20 and available at most computer and camera stores. Just make sure you get one for "SD Memory Cards".
