Ipod won't load

When i tried to load my ipod my computer thinks its a memory stick. it ask me what actions i want to take ie view pictures, transfer pictures, start a slide show etc.

If i open the ipod folder in my computer it has several folders such as photos, recordings, musics etc. But there is no exe file so that i can try to load it.

also the program doesn't show up in the add or remove programs so i can't uninstall to try again.

I want to transfer 525 pictures stored on my computer to a memory stick. how do I do this?

Plug the memory stick into the computer and format it. Unplug it then plug it back into the computer, you should have a pop up that asks you what you want to do (open folder view, play and a few other options), you weant to choose Open a Folder View.

You should now have a window open that you can put files into, if not then go to "My Computer" and select it from the available drives.

Now open up the folder with your pictures in it and select all the pictures you want to transfer then press "copy". Go to the memory sticks folder and right click and select "paste" from the right click menu or hit "CTRL+V".

You will get a progress pop up that shows how long the file transfer will take, after it is are you.

If the memory stick is not recognized when plugged in, you way need to load the software that came with the memory stick for its drivers.

No memory space in memory stick

Transfer the images from the memory stick to your computer, make sure the transfer has been successful so you don't lose your pictures, then to be safe put the stick back into the camera and delete them once back in the camera. AGAIN, before you delete anything, make sure your pictures have been safely transferred to your pc and you can view them all. Deleting the photos from the stick will make the disc empty again and ready for more shots to be taken.

Computer won't read memory stick

SCMG - You won't be inserting it into your modem. But if the card fits snuggly and it seems to fit right, then you're probably where you need to be.

For all of you - it may be easier to connect the camera directly to the computer to download the pictures. All cameras come with the appropriate cable to connect the camera to a USB port. All you need to do is make the connection and then put the camera into "review" mode to view the pictures and Windows should automatically see the camera and ask if you want to download the pictures off of it.

Transferring photo from computer to memory stick

Many cameras will not let you write to the card. Try using a card reader, which will make the memory card appear to the computer as a separate hard drive.

Coby DP-887 Digital Picture Frame: Unable to transfer pictures to internal memory

The Coby DP-887 does not have built in memory so one cannot "load" pictures onto it. It is a viewer in every sense of the word. If you load pictures on a flash drive or memoory stick and plug that into the Coby DP-887 then you'll be able to view pictures or video.
