Using the highest quality setting, scan your photos with a flatbed scanner. Then save them as .jpg files. The result will be quite acceptable, providing that your original shots are in good condition. If you have suitable photo software, you can sharpen them and adjust the size, brightness and contrast and so on. Great fun if you have never done it before. Don't forget to back up all your cherished data such as photos.

Hope this helps

    I forgot to mention, the other thing you could try, is to take a digital photo shot of each picture. The way to do this is to set up a digital camera on a tripod looking directly downwards. You need to make sure the camera is angled exactly otherwise the frame will distort on your new photo. Place your old photo underneath it, adjust your camera height to correctly frame the old photo and use remote release (a cable with a button on it) to take the shot. You may have to play around with lighting but it does work. I still suggest the scanner as a better option though.

    Best wishes....

File contains no image data


If you format, you will lose everything...format means erase and optimize. Take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. It will usually read all the pics on a card and you can make a cd of them on the machine.

I uploaded pics from my computer onto my Camera SDPhotosmart M537


If I understand you correctly, you put pics onto the SD card using the computer, then put the card in the camera and now can't see the pics? Is that correct? The camera won't recognize the pics because it uses a different recording system than the computer. Now if you want to take more pictures using that card, you will need to format it in the camera first.

Ativa memory card


The card is probably formatted with a FAT16 filesystem. Try reformatting the card with a FAT32 filesystem.
