Hi

The camera creates its own folder named " DCIM " during the initial Format process
New folders would be created in this folder. To recover your lost images

Try removing the memory card and connecting it via a card reader/usb adapter to browse the contents of the card. Save all pictures elsewhere on your PC.


But chances are when you created the new folder the camera may have deleted the contents of the default folder. (the previous existing photos)

Save any photos you can find & re-format the memory card using Camera settings menu.

How do i rename pictures so that my computer won't think they are duplicates?


Rename the photos on the computer before you download the new photos.
OR
Create a new folder (say Photos1) in another area away from where the existing photos are located in your computer and move all the existing existing into the new Photo1 folder.
Then when you download the new photos from your camera then there will be no conflict or the need to rename the existing photos.
Later, you will need to create another folder and move the current photos into this folder before you download the next lot of photos from your camera.

I borrowed a Caplio R5 camera, have taken some super pics, but couldn't download onto computer. So took the memory stick to Boots and their developer couldn't find the photos. Put the memory stick...


The Photo's are currently stored on the cameras internal memory, you'll need to transfer them to the card using the camera's menu options.

Failing that, plug the camera into your PC and switch on, a box should appear asking you which programme would you like to access the new device with.

Select the folder option, then click on and open any folders therein, one will be the camera memory the other the card memory.

I'm trying to load my photos from my camera to my computer and I'm getting a message that says "Save Folder Not Found." I've never had a problem before.








it is possible that the original "Save Folder" has been deleted or name changed. Go to options and create a new folder to save your photos to. Hope this can help. UAW 974

I am transferring images to my computer, which I have done before. Now I am getting the message "Save folder not found?" Have I moved it? Do I need to create it? How? Where? Please help....


My solution is to unistall your current canon software that holds 15 canon components in your computer. You will find them under system task and select remove programs. After you have uninstalled the program, reinstall your "Canon Digital Camera Disk" and follow their prompts. Now you should be able to transfer images again as per normal.
I have answered this question in detail under another question postered by "whitecar631" under canon "save folder not found" canon sd1100.
This worked for me, but I don"t know how to prevent it happening again. I do know the day I lost all "my pictures", I had previously deleted a large file in my documents. I also experienced "save folder not found" when I tried to transfer images from my canon ixus 100.
I was lucky enough that I had all of my original SD Flash Media Cards, so could transfer all my photos again. I have since put all my photos into labelled folders instead of dates and images.
Hope this helps, it appears to be a problem in the canon program. Joyce

My DMC-TZ3 always stores images in haphazard order, not the exact order in which they were taken. Why? And how can I make it store images in chronological order please?


This is from the manual: "File numbers are reset when new folders are created." "New folders are created in the following cases: 1. When pictures are taken to folders containing files numbered 999. 2. When using cards already containing the same folder number (including pictures taken other cameras, etc.) 3. When recording after performing a 'NO. RESET' (found in the setup menu).

My camera shows Mass Storage.What do I do to print individual photos to my computor


I take it your camera shows as a mass storage device when you click onto my computer.

1) Double click on your C: drive, when its open RMB single click on the back ground. A box will pop up and offer several options, select NEW the FOLDER.
This will put a folder on your C: drive. With the title new folder highligted in blue, just type the word Photos and hit return. This should rename the new folder to photos.

2) Double LMB click on your photos folder, this should open it up, click on the double square icon in the top right hand corner of the window to reduce its size. Then click on the blue title bar of the window and move it to the right hand side of your screen.

3) Double LMB click on you mass storage device folder. It should open, you may see one or probably 2 folders inside. One is your camera memory, the other is the memory card. One at a time, double click on the a folder, when it opens, are there any files inside ?

If not, just arrow back (Top left hand side of window) and open the next folder. Here there should be your photographs.

Once found got to the menu bar select Edit - Select all. Then back on the menu bar select Copy.

Move your curser to the Photos folder you just created and from the menu bar select File - Paste.

This should copy over all your photos. Once completed to you satisfaction, go back to your camera (MASS STORAGE) and edit - select all then file - delete.

Downloading and catergorising all my pictures


Follow the steps for your computer to create a new folder, in the same folder where your photo's were downloaded. You can create several new folders and typically drag and drop your photo's into the different folders. For example, rename one folder "Holiday" or "Birthday" and drag the appropriate photo's there.
In the future, you can create the folder "Jane's 3rd birthday" before you load the photos, for instance, from a birthday party, and load the photo's directly to the folder.The photo's will already be organized!

Lost all photos


It's no problem at all to get them back. Please see this post for several free software that you can download. You'll need to use a card reader with these programs though:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

After you've recovered your photos, consider formatting the card IN YOUR CAMERA. This should help prevent such episodes from happening again. This will also erase the card, so make sure that you've recovered the photos first.

Press menu, then select the tools menu. Scroll down to the selection showing the capacity of your card and select it. Follow the on-screen prompts for a "Low-Level" format.
