How do you put your pictures saved onto your camera onto your memory card?


If you saved the pictures to your cameras built in memory, chances are that you cant transfer the pictures from the camera straight to the memory card. You have to FIRST transfer them to your computer and THAN from your computer to your memory card.

I have a Fuji FinePix F480 which is brilliant but it isn't downloading all my shots onto my computer. It is showing a message that I have internal pictures. My question is how do I get these pictures to...


I've attempted in the past to download from the internal memory to the computer before with no success. What you can do is put the memory card back into the camera and transfer the internal pictures to your memory card (your camera refers to these as "frames"). I'm not sure if you have a manual or not but what needs to be done is selecting copy using the multi-control button on the back of the camera select "IN" for internal and arrow from internal to card. the only sticky thing about this is you need to do one "frame" at a time. Make sure you have the room on your memory card before doing this. You might want to format the memory card first before you do the transfer from internal memory to your memory card. Then once the Internal "frames" are all on the memory card you can down load them to the computer as "normal"

Can't veiw pictures from memory card on camera


Some cameras do not allow a computer to camera transfer. It causes the card to have a different initialization not compatible with your camera. If the pictures are safely on your computer, format the card in the camera and it will be fine.

How do I transfer pictures from my computer back on to my camera? Is it possible to transfer pictures back to your camera from the computer?


This doesn't work for all cameras, but it does work for some cameras.

1) Make SURE you have all the photos in your computer.

2) Put the memory card into your camera and follow the camera's instructions to reformat the card.

3) Take 1 new photo on the memory card.

4) Put the memory card in the card reader on your computer. If you connect the camera directly to the computer instead of using a card reader, then do that now.

5) If your computer tries to automatically copy or move the photos to the computer cancel the process.

6) Use Windows Explorer (or Finder, if you use a Mac) and open 2 windows. In one window, navigate to the drive that represents your memory card. In the other window navigate to the location of your photos on your computer. This is usually in your My Pictures or Pictures drive under your user account.

7) On the memory card you will usually find the photo is in a subfolder, it may be several folders down. There may also be a thumbnail file. To copy files from your computer back onto the memory card so they can be seen in the camera you need to copy the files back onto the card using:

A) The same filename structure;
B) Include a thumbnail file if the camera creates thumbnail files
C) The file needs to be in the right folder structure (determined in step 7 above).

If your camera makes and uses thumbnail files but you don't have them on your computer, then you probably can't get the camera to recognize the files even if you copy them back onto the memory card in the right place.

Good luck!

How do I transfer pictures onto the memory card?


Go to the camera's "setup menu" and scroll down to the last option, "move images to card" That should put the images onto the memory card.

Cannot access pics


Once you took pictures without a memory card, all pictures taken will automatically be saved on the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera.
When taking pictures with a memory card, all pictures are just saved on the memory card itself.
If you are seeing 100-757 on the LCD screen. It means that there are already 757 pictures taken from the first time you've used the camera.
It is possible that some of the pictures are in the internal memory and some are in the memory card.

STEPS to DOUBLE CHECK:
1) Remove memory card out of the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button
(lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the internal memory

2) Return memory card back in the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button (
lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the memory card itself

*** If you want to transfer pictures on the internal memory of the camera to your MEMORY CARD, you just have to follow the steps below:
- Make sure there is a memory card inside the camera
- Turn on camera
- Press on PLAY mode button to view pictures
- Press MENU/OK button
- Keep scrolling to the right until you see COPY TO CARD
- Select YES using the arrow keys
- Press MENU/OK to confirm
* When you've done these steps, all pictures from the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera will be copied to your MEMORY CARD but it depends on the space left on your memory card

** If still, you could not view the pictures, it's possible that the pictures are really gone when you have transferred the previous pictures to your computer.

** Once you have transferred pictures to your PC, and you have deleted those on your camera, the FILE NAME of the pictures will not start from 100-001 again unless you have reset the file name on the settings of your camera.

In example, i already have 256 pictures on my camera so the filename reads 100-256 for the last picture taken. And then i decided to transfer those 256 pictures to my PC and i deleted those immediately after being transferred. So, as i took another picture, FILENAME will start with 100-257 if i have not reset
the FILE NAME settings to 100-001.

Hope i've helped you enough.
