If you have Windows (I don't know about Mac OSs), go to Control Panel/Cameras and scanners -- there you will find a Wizard to use in copying your photos to your hard drive. OR open My Computer and see if there is a new drive listed there -- if so, that is your camera, so you can open that file and do as you wish with the photos.
You can go to your camera's webpage and download the drivers that come on the installation CD too.

SOURCE: Transferring pictures from computer to camera

Hi Mike. The only way I can think to do this, is with an separate card reader. Then you could take your SD card and load back and forth, from your computer to camera (and vice versa).

hope this helps!

SOURCE: When transferring pics to computer

Your camera is not numbering consecutively...it is starting over each time...hence the duplicate numbers. You can use a card reader to download the pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can right-click the duplicates and rename them.

How do I transfer pics from my pc back on to my fuji S5700 camera


You'll need to use a card reader. Once the memory card is in a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB), the card will appear to the computer as another external hard drive, and you can copy files to it the same way you usually copy files.
Be aware that if you've done any editing of the pics (opening a pic in a photo editor and then saving it without doing anything counts as editing), the camera most likely won't display it.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

You don't really need the disc. You can use a separate card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. It's easier and faster. typrice_2.jpg

Connect your camera to computer using your usb lead. Go to my computer and you should see the camera (probably disc E ) Double click on E continually until camera files and pictures are shown. Highlight the pics you require and select move to file (move to my pictures) This achieves the transfer to your computer

If you have moved pics from your computer to the card and then inserted the card into your camera, the card is now formatted to the computer, not the camera. You're supposed to format the card in the camera.

If you have Windows XP you don't need any software from the camera maker. Make sure you have fresh batteries, turn on the camera and use your cable that came with the camera to plug into the USB of you computer. It should find it as a drive and you then should be able to transfer the pics to your computer. Failing that? Take your camera / sd card to Walmart and have then transfer the pics to a CD

Memory card


When you want to transfer pics off of your memory card you have several options. Some newer model computers have memory card slots built in and you can just pop yours into the pc and download on your computer, or you can use the usb cable included with your camera and plug it directly to your pc. I dont know about transfering to disc. My DVD CAM will only take a picture to disc or to card, but I cant transfer one to the other. if any of this is confusing, you can just take your memory card to walmart or any photo store, so they can develop them.
