Insert your memory stick to your laptop, if your laptop has a memory stick slot or in the USB slot (if it is supported). If it doesn't have on you need a memory stick card reader. Insert your memory stick on a card reader then insert the card reader into the USB slot.
After that your laptop will prompt you and choose "view folder".
Now go to the folder where your pictures is located and choose the pictures you want to transfer and then right click on it and click "copy".
Go back to the folder of your memory stick, right click and then click "paste".
That should do it.
Thanks for using fixya!
Update me if you still have questions and let me know how I helped you.
The most common cause of the '3 beep issue' is memory or RAM failure. Generally, only one memory stick goes bad (you only need one stick for your computer to work) so here's what you do:
Step 1: make sure the MacBook is off then remove ONLY 1 memory stick. After you remove it, place the battery back in the battery bay then try powering it on. If it works, you'll know that memory stick is failing and you can buy a new one fairly cheap.
Step 2: If step 1 didn't solve your issue, replace the 1st memory stick and pull out the 2nd. Replace your battery in the battery bay then power up. Usually one of the memory modules is bad. If neither step works for you, try getting a compatible memory stick that you know is working just so you can rule out both memory sticks being faulty.

Put memory stick in camera and format it, this is the only way to fix some problem in memory stick. If that does not help, memory stick got hardware problem that is irreparable. Buy new memory stick then. Thanks.
The problem is with the memory card. It probably just shorted internally and is no longer useful. The amount of memory is not the problem, as I used a 4GB card for a long time and my card finally went bad. You will just have to get another memory card and MAYBE find someone to be able to retrieve your data.
Sorry to hear that but I reckon it ceased for good, at times their not 100% reliable but you can try using an adaptor with it via your PC to see if you can retrieve all your data’s but the chance is slim from experience, you might be looking to get a new one, if you did buy new one try backup it up from time to time via your PC or alternative storage so you can retrieve your data’s when your memory card come to a halt
You can delete pictures from the camera. You can transfer the pics to your computer, then delete. Plug you camera into your computer, click start/computer/ double click on the drive that accesses your camera. From here, you can drag/drop pics or delete them or format the entire memory stick. If you need all of the pics and do not have a computer, you will need to purchase another memory stick.
