ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER If your photos and videos 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 and 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.
If the old photos are not displaying in the Camera, the most common reason will be the default folder structure might have changed.
I understand that you're able to view the old photos in the Camera by connecting it to the Computer.
In that case, you can delete the unwanted photos from the Camera after connecting the Camera to the Computer.
I hope it will resolve the issue. If you're still not getting enough space in the Memory on the Camera, you may transfer the new required images to a folder in the Computer and then format the Memory of the Camera.
Once you format the Camera, the memory on the Camera free up and you can copy the required new images back to the DCIM folder in the Camera.
Please let me know if you require any clarifications.
Yes, they can be recovered if you take care. Also if you want to maximize chances of Kodak camera files recovery, the first thing you should do is immediately stop taking more photos or videos (with your current digital camera) in case partial files are overwritten.
Then connect the camera (memory card) to a PC or Mac which has install a data recovery tool, check this site Digital Camera Photo Recovery for a list of good and tested recovery software.
If you transfer the photos to your computer from the camera, you should be able to save to another memory card. I can't say whether or not the photos on the new memory card will show up on your camera since there may be certain requirements to display on camera screen.
Plug your camera into the computer USB or insert old memory card. A box should pop up giving you the option to view files. Copy and Paste (or Drag) selected photos to a specified folder on your computer (Like My Pictures in My Documents). Insert new memory card. Copy and Paste (or Drag) selected photos to the drive for your memory card.
I had a Camedia 560 and it had this problem. Take a picture and then look at your memory card or camera from the computer. I think you will see that there is a complicated structure of folders - the pictures are in one folder and there is some kind of index file in another folder. The camera cannot display pictures restored from the computer unless you restore the index files as well as the picture files. Sorry I can't remember the details, but one way to do it would be to copy every last thing on the memory card. Not very convenient.
This is a design flaw - my new camera doesn't have the problem and will display any picture I copy to it provided it was taken on the camera and not rotated or cropped. It doesn't mind other editing like putting a caption in the photo with a paint program. Panasonic Limix.
