Transferring images on camera memery onto memory card.

I have lost my USB cable so i rely on taking images off my memory card.
I have some images saved on the actual camera memory and since i have no cable i cant get them onto my PC.
Is there anyway the camera can save the images on the camera memory onto the card ?

I had the same problem, and I found after much playing and mostly accidental findings that I could do this by following these steps

1. Put an SD card in the camera. Will not work otherwise
2. Go into playback mode, where you view the pictures, button looks like an blue arrow pointing to the right
3. Press the round 4 way controller downwards, and a menu (that I have never seen before!) appears
4. Choose the 4th icon along on the top line and that will give you options to transfer from memory card to camera and the other way around.

Built in memory full

If your built in memory is full you will want to backup the pictures you have on the camera onto another drive, the easiest way to do this is to plug your camera into your computer (via the USB cable provided with the camera) and transfer all of the files from the camera onto your PC. You can then clear the memory in the camera and begin taking new pictures.

Lost my usb cable

I don't know in which country you live (this is helpful to know!), but in most stores offering cameras and many offering electronic items, you should be able to procure a kit of adaptors that will include a cable to use with them.
In the US at least, Wal-Mart, Best buy, Circuit City and Radio Shack are likely sources.
Elsewhere (?) you are on your own.

SmartMedia - how to download images without USB cable

get a new cable. or a new card reader. i prefer card readers as i can take my camera around to various events, and if a friend wants an image, he can attach the reader to his computer (if nearby) and get what he wants.
are you sure your computer can directly read smart media cards?
possible it does, but not that common unless its fairly new.
