Took pictures without memory card Nikon D3000 camera, can I retrieve them?

No. Without a memory card the camera stores the last picture taken only so you can view it to verify proper operation. It overwrites the previous picture, and it disappears when you turn the camera off.

You NEED a memory card if you want to save the pictures. Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera works.

Get message "cannot create folder"

Format the memory card in the camera, not the computer. Also, it could be a memory card issue, do other cards cause the camera to return the same message. If yes, then it well could be the camera.

My pictures will not load onto my computer when I plug in the camera via usb cord. Usually iphoto will automatically open and install the photos, but the camera seems to not even be communicating with the...

I assume you're not referring to a film camera, but a digital camera that uses a memory card of some type.

Consider 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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( ).

Have canon rebel xs , getting card write protected error

If this is a Canon Rebel XS there is no memory card in a 35mm film camera If this is a Rebel XSi then generally this error is caused by the memory card lock switch here is a diagram to show the correct orientation of this switch

Also after you have unlocked the card you should format the memory card in the camera it is going to be used in. Failing to do so may produce other errors and possibly corrupt pictures and files Formatting clean the memory card to produce optimum performance between the camera and card

My camera simply won't work. All that appears on the screen is battery information to indicate that the battery in fully charged.Nothing else works. This happened suddenly after shooting a simple...

Okay reading between the lines and I shouldn't but it feels to me as if you have had this camera for a while and are familiar with its functions would I be correct in assuming this? Did you download the pictures from your assignment using your camera and a USB cable or did you use a card reader?
Have you another memory card you can put in the camera?
What I'm hinting or leading up to is there any chance you disconnected either the USB cable or pulled the memory card out before shutting it off as in eject or safely remove?
Will the camera allow you to move into the set up or command functions? I know you said nothing else works but it shut off and didn't come back on I'm hoping you messed up on removing the memory card from the reader OR the internal battery has just dies and taken all the clock functions and your setting with it.
I don't know if you have a manual so here is a link to a PDF manual

Sorry it's a biggy you'll need to copy past it but I'm using the manual now tracking down the internal battery so it is a good link

Page 42 of this manual there is a "Disp" button here is a screen shot did you maybe touch this and shut the screen off?

If you can access the command functions page 114 has the camera reverting to default setting sequence.

On page 115 you can actually shut off the monitor display, why anyone would want that I'm not sure at this point. I'm just throwing out possibilities.

I've given you some things to look into see what happens.

What is the fastest write speed? I have noticed the camera does take a while to write when shooting several rapid succession in raw mode. I am shopping for a better SD card. Is it worth it to pay the extra...

Although a good SD card is worth considering it's not the only thing that determines the speed. In fact the shooting light has more to do with it then the memory card. The Rebels although not Pro cameras are pretty darn fast with the differences immeasurable in most cases with Pro cameras.
The Rebel will show the burst rate in the right corner of the viewfinder and if you noticed this rate changes with the light and shutter speeds. Sow the shutter speed down and that burst rate will drop as well. The size of the image file also dictates how fast you can burst in frames per second. You are shooting RAW and no doubt jpg's so the camera is doing double duty with some pretty impressive files size. If you want speed shoot jpg's and set your camera correctly for white balance, shoot for the end use. If you are looking for speed you aren't shooting portraits or landscapes where you have time to calculate your shot so the need for a BIG print isn't necessary so drop your image quality.
The Rebel's processor is very impressive and it has a large buffer where it writes the file as you are shooting so in fact the camera is writing to the buffer at the same time it's writing to the memory card. That's why when you stop shooting it takes several seconds for the camera to catch up.

If you are looking for speed keep your shutter speed up, reduce the image file size, shoot jpg, class 6 works nice (I use this type) I have only one class 8.

On a personal note the Canon Digital Rebel has put so much power and performance in the hands of entry level photographers and they are using that power to come up with some darn nice photography and in the right hands it's putting the hurt to some long time pro shooters.

Pictures will not transfer to computer

The best way to download pictures to a computer is through an optional card reader then there is no problem with the computer not recognizing the camera or downloading the pictures. Using a card reader you would remove the Compact Flash card from your 10D and insert it into the card reader the computer would then recognize it as an external drive. Do not format the memory card in the computer always format in the camera. If you must use the camera as the reader make sure you have plenty of battery power in the camera to do the transfer then turn it off. Have the computer on and connect the USB cable to the computer and the mini USB to the camera. Turn on the camera and the computer depending on you operating system will ether place the camera memory card as a drive on the desk top or you may have to go into your system preferences. Most newer systems the HD icon will appear on the desk top. Which ever system you use make sure you click on the icon when you are finished downloading the images and "eject" the memory card, failing to do this will cause problems with lost files or corrupt the memory card.

Can't take pictures.

Try moving the lock switch to on and then off again: I've had this happen on various types of flash memory and this usually clears the fault. next, make sure that the memory card contacts are clean by gently wiping them with a cotton bud slightly moistened with alcohol.

If that doesn't work then try a replacement memory card. 256MB SD cards are such poverty spec items that you can often get them for free on Yahoo FreeCycle. If you buy one it will be for peanuts.

If the replacement card doesn't work then you have a camera problem, but may be able to bypass the fault by using CF cards instead as your camera takes those as well.
