If I have understood this correctly then you only saved shortcuts to the pictures in which case you have lost the pictures. There is a chance of recovering them with software BUT DON'T CONTINUE TO USE THE CARD, as you will lessen the chance of any recovery. Take the card out of the camera and place in card reader. Then use software from http://www.pcinspector.de/default.htm to scan the card and recover what you can.Make the save directory a folder on your hard drive and NOT the card. (If I am incorrect and you actually copied the pictures to your computer then I apologise for alarming you. In that case if you have then it is just a matter of navigating to the directory they are saved in on the PC, copying them (right click copy) and pasting them back into the directory on the card that stores the pictures, DCIM/olympus etc-just click through the directories till you find the pix.)
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions. I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.
The DCIM file is the folder is the folder which images or pictures taken are saved. Inside the DCIM folder should be should be one or more folders. The picture files are stored in one of these two folders.
Look for the filenames that end in .jpg or something like DSC0001.JPG or DSC0002.JPG.
When you plugged in your camera to your computer's usb device, right click on your Start button, and choose Explore. The windows explorer window will open. Click on the (-) beside My Computer and the (-) beside Local Drive C: to minimize the list of folders. Now, you should be looking at the drive letter that defines your Camera. It could be drive E or F. Click on that drive and it will show your the contents on your right panel. Look for those folders and copy them to your local drive.
If you need further assistance, dont hesitate to ask or comment back.
Click and open that ‘driver’, you may see two folders DCIM and MISC. click and open DCIM, you may see another folder such as 101MSDCF, open it you’ll see all the pictures. Select the pictures then copy to wherever you want.
did you put the folder onto the camera using a PC ?
Most cameras make their own file structure, and so you cannot view any added folders. You would have to put the picutres into the folders created by the camera - usually Card\DCIM\100_1 or similar.
Dont create folders on your card, always put the files into the correct folder.
Yes, you can easily copy back the pictures to the memory card through a card reader, but first you should reformat the card on the camera so that necessary folders can be created. There you'll find something like DCIM folder, create a new folder and copy back the pictures on that folder.
I've had this problem with two Panasonics Lumix so far (FZ-7 and FX-9) - I'm guessing this is a Panasonic firmware / iPhoto incompatibility.
The only solution I've found is to manually copy the movies from the camera to to your Mac and then drag n drop them into iPhoto. To do this:
1) Go to the Fnder desktop and open up the camera's hard-drive icon (probably called 'NO NAME' - nice!).
2) You should see a folder inside called 'DCIM' - double-click to open this
3) Inside this you will see at least one folder (though there maybe 2 or 3) called 102_PANA (or 103_PANA etc)
4) These folders are where the camera stores all your pictures and videos and (hopefully) will contain the actual movies that iPhoto neglected to fully import
5) Drag these onto your desktop (or a newly created folder on the desktop called 'Videos from camera' for example) and wait for them to copy fully
6) Now you can safely drag and drop the videos from the folder on your camera into the Mac's Wasterbasket
7) Import the copied movies into iPhoto (either by dragging and dropping or by the 'File --> Import to L:ibrary' menu command)
8) Once they have been imported, you can optionally delete these videos from the desktop now
9) Remember to repeat steps 3 to 8 for each folder you find in the 'NO NAME/DCIM' folder on the camera
That's it - hope it works for you. I'd love to know if anyone else has a more elegant solution!!
