The DCIM file is the folder is the folder which images or pictures taken are saved. Inside the DCIM folder should be should be one or more folders. The picture files are stored in one of these two folders. Look for the filenames that end in .jpg or something like DSC0001.JPG or DSC0002.JPG.

When you plugged in your camera to your computer's usb device, right click on your Start button, and choose Explore. The windows explorer window will open. Click on the (-) beside My Computer and the (-) beside Local Drive C: to minimize the list of folders. Now, you should be looking at the drive letter that defines your Camera. It could be drive E or F. Click on that drive and it will show your the contents on your right panel. Look for those folders and copy them to your local drive.

If you need further assistance, dont hesitate to ask or comment back.

Goodluck!

The Dcim format is a file structure that is Compliant with
Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (image and data).
To boil it down, it is a format initially used for medicine.

To put a picture back onto a camera, this is what you must do.

Take a picture with the card in the camera (this creates the file structure on the camera).
Connect the camera to the PC, open the "drive" of the camera, you should see a DCIM folder. open it.
Inside you will see a folder called something 190_PANA, (depending on make of camera, obviously mines a Panasonic) Open it.
Inside is the picture/s you took, note the filename it is 8 characters long EG: P1090810.JPG , find the higest number.
Copy your pictures into the folder with the ones taken in the camera, no rename the photos to be sequentially higher from the last one taken in the camera. EG: P1090811.jpg and so on.

NOTE: if the pictures were originally off the camera and they still have the P1090811 or similar mane, then you can just create a new folder in the DCIM folder Called 191_PANA (or whatever your camera calls it + 1) and put all the pictures in there.

It's complicated, sorry for the windy explanation (you'd think someone would have made a program to do this)... then again the camera software probably does. :-o

Cheers.

Hi I copied my dcim folder full of pictures to a sd card in my samsung s4 phone... then when i tried opening the files on my phone (sd) all dcim files was corrupted and my dcim file is now a ?cim file


Hi, your spelling problem makes it hard to tell what you are trying to say. I get the point that the files were corrupted after you transferred. Did you transfer them manually? Next time, you may try use some third-party software to copy pictures to SD card. See if that will help.

Huawei u8652 can you move photos from phone to sd


If your SD card is recognized, then go into Files Application (Or any other file manager you might have. I would recommend ES File manager). Navigate to the folder, usually Storage-> DCIM -> Camera. Long press any photo and on pop-up select move(Cut). In some advanced file manager, you can multi-select or even move/copy a folder. Now navigate to SD card (Ext Storage), DCIM -> Camera and paste it.

Cannot see pc MOV or JPG files on flash drive in Canon SX230


Thanks very much for responding to my problem.
It seems Canon will not allow edited pictures or video to transfer from PC to their digital cameras for viewing.
steps to my problem:1. my canon SX230 created all the parts for my WMV video in MOV format originally.
2. created a movie (WMV format) in Windows Live Movie Maker. Works well and plays on my PC (windows 7).
3. after WMV completed - converted to HD MOV format in 2 different file convert programs and with 2 different HD MOV resolution settings on Both programs. WMV resolution is 1920x1080 (HD). ALL 4 MOV videos play well on my PC in 2 different programs.

Steps getting Canon to see video in playback mode.1. copy MOV video from PC to Flash drive in my card reader in same folder as my original JPG & MOV files, then inserted into camera - does not recognize file.
2. copy MOV file from PC to camera with USB cable. Windows error message. Wrong format - would not copy.
3. Formatted flash drive in camera. Took picture to create DCIM folder, JPG image, and CANONMSC folder with M0104.CTG file .Deleted CANONMSC folder. Copied my MOV video from PC to camera (USB cable). this time copy successful. However camera does nor recognize file.
5. tried again except deleted M0104.CTG file but not the CANONMSC folder. no luck.
It seems Canon will not recognize any file that has not originated in the camera AND has not been altered. Upon researching answers on the NET - many other users of Canon cameras have the same problem with no luck.

Pics gone in DCIM folder. Using a Nikon s3000 coolpix camera, connected to computer, F:\s3000 is detected, within it is DCIM folder present, and within DCIM folder presents Nikon100 and Nikon101 folders,...


You cannot create new folders on an SD card and copy images to them, as the camera will not recognise them, since they were not create in the camera. Copy the entire contents of the card to a folder on your HDD, then format the card in the camera.

DCIM folder has got deleted, what do I do ? MY DSC-H20 was infected with viruses, I scannerd it with AVAST and selected the option of deleting the infected files from the system. antivirus apparently...


If all your images are backed up on your computer, just format the media card IN THE CAMERA, and that should re-set everything for you when next you take a photo.

Acessing Still Photos off finalized disk


A DVD player may not recognise JPEG, but will recognise MPEG, which is why the DC210 has the Photomovie facility to convert the still photos from JPEG to MPEG, but you can still get to see your still photos on your PC, because they are on the disc.

Here's how you do it.

The disc has two folders - VIDEO_TS for videos and Photomovie and DCIM for the still images. Inside DCIM there is a folder called 101CANON. Open this folder to see the still images - they all have .jpg file extensions.
It may be quicker to copy the 101CANON folder to your PC, and open the copied file on your PC.

Don't forget to rate this solution once you've tried it !
