Trouble viewing pictures transfered to the memory card

I transfered a bunch of pictures to the camera memory card, but can not view them on the camera. The files I transfered are .avi and .jpg, both which I think work on a canon powershot sd 1200is.

The pictures and videos were not taken on the camera, friends sent them,and whn I turn on the camera to play themback the camera does not find them. I checked to make sure they were on the card, via memory card reader and my computer, and they are all there still.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Adam

The process only works one way...you can download pictures taken on your camera to your computer but you cannot download pictures from your computer to the card and play them back on your camera.

Memory card trouble


The camera should have come with a USB cable with which to connect the camera straight to the computer. Connect the camera (with the memory card inserted) to the computer and see if you can access the photos.

I put pictures in my memory card but doesn't let me view them in my camera


You need to import the photos to your PC to view them. There are two ways to do so: connecting a camera directly to the computer via USB (Universal Serial Bus) cable and by using a flash memory reader. Using the flash memory reader is considered the fastest method to transfer images. Some of the popular types of flash memory card readers are Secure Digital (SD), Compact Flash (CF), Memory Stick (MS), Multimedia Card (MMC) and Smart Media (SM). Here is how you can use the reader to view photos from your digital camera.

How to transfer Nikon Coolpix camera pictures to memory card?


Make sure you have an SD memory card inserted and your camera is on. Press the Play button to view your images. Now press menu and scroll down to the copy feature. You have two options, copy from camera to memory card is on top, and from memory card to camera is on the bottom.  Once you select your option, choose your pictures and copy.

Cannot access pics


Once you took pictures without a memory card, all pictures taken will automatically be saved on the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera.
When taking pictures with a memory card, all pictures are just saved on the memory card itself.
If you are seeing 100-757 on the LCD screen. It means that there are already 757 pictures taken from the first time you've used the camera.
It is possible that some of the pictures are in the internal memory and some are in the memory card.

STEPS to DOUBLE CHECK:
1) Remove memory card out of the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button
(lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the internal memory

2) Return memory card back in the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button (
lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the memory card itself

*** If you want to transfer pictures on the internal memory of the camera to your MEMORY CARD, you just have to follow the steps below:
- Make sure there is a memory card inside the camera
- Turn on camera
- Press on PLAY mode button to view pictures
- Press MENU/OK button
- Keep scrolling to the right until you see COPY TO CARD
- Select YES using the arrow keys
- Press MENU/OK to confirm
* When you've done these steps, all pictures from the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera will be copied to your MEMORY CARD but it depends on the space left on your memory card

** If still, you could not view the pictures, it's possible that the pictures are really gone when you have transferred the previous pictures to your computer.

** Once you have transferred pictures to your PC, and you have deleted those on your camera, the FILE NAME of the pictures will not start from 100-001 again unless you have reset the file name on the settings of your camera.

In example, i already have 256 pictures on my camera so the filename reads 100-256 for the last picture taken. And then i decided to transfer those 256 pictures to my PC and i deleted those immediately after being transferred. So, as i took another picture, FILENAME will start with 100-257 if i have not reset
the FILE NAME settings to 100-001.

Hope i've helped you enough.

Try to remove the SD card from the camera and view the pictures. If you can still view the pictures it means that they are in the internal 8mb memory. If it is inth internal 8MB memory, you have to connect to a PC in order to transfer them.
