How to upload a video to the computer with my camera?


Hi Morgan,

The CTG file are the temporary files that a Canon Camera creates with every picture you click and is stored on the Card. These are not the actual picture files. Try to copy only the JPEG files and if possible format your Card since these CTG files are supposed to be deleted automatically when you erase/copy a picture from Card.

Regards,
Suhail

How can format memory card in my tz9? i uploaded pictures in my computer but forgot to erase


If your pics are safely in your computer and you're ready to completely erase the card by formatting it, then all you have to do is go into the camera's setup menu and you will find "format"....just follow the on-screen instructions.

Can I erase more than one picture at a time? It only lets me do one and doesn't ask "erase all?" like some cameras do.


if you want to erase all ..just get to the menu ...storage ..and memory card ..and choose format ..this will erase all into the camera and format the card again which is a good thing in case you had errors..
anyway ..in the view mode..it has to have something called multiple deleting or erasing ...and in there you can sort the pictures by name and delete them all at once ..

Yesterday my card was working fine, it kept telling me that my card was full so i just deleted older pictures.. Now i'm trying to upload pictures and it is telling me i need to format my card but that will...


Yesterday, did you use the computer to delete the older pictures? Don't ever do that. For now, you can use a card reader to download your pictures to your computer. After they are safely downloaded, format the card in the camera and don't let it get that full again.

File contains no image data


If you format, you will lose everything...format means erase and optimize. Take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. It will usually read all the pics on a card and you can make a cd of them on the machine.

I have lost my manual for my Canon Powershot SX110 IS. Until I replace the manual, can you tell me how to delete pictures from the camera after I have uploaded them? Thank you!


Sure. The fast way is to format the memory card. As soon as you are SURE all your pics are downloaded, disconnect the camera and do a format. Fast and painless. Its good to format a camera occasionally anyway. No error checking. Even Locked photos are erased!!

I just got back from my first cruise and took so many pictures. I don't have a USB so I went to go place the memory card into my computer but it won't read the card. So when I put the memory card back into...


i know its not ideal but why dont you borrow a friends camera and usb lead, put your card into their camera and upload them onto your computer via their camera, at least then you can save your special pictures and rectify the problem later

Memory card


yes Formatting will erase everything on the card. The 2 cameras probably use different formats or even different qualities. You should upload pictures before switching the card between cameras. Hope this helps
