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 any photo cataloging program.

MEMORY CARD SHOWING FULL BUT WHEN CAMERA CONNECTED TO DOWNLOAD TO LAPTOP OR DESKTOP ITS SHOWING FREE SPACE AND USED SPACE BUT NOT SHOWING ANY PICTURES AND VIDEOS,


Save the pictures and videos on the card. Try reformatting the card in the computer, and then again using the camera. The first reformat will ensure the card is empty, and then the camera reformat will ensure that it is recognized by the camera. If the camera reformat will not work, try a new card.

The card has corrupted. You'll likely need to use recovery software (see this article). After recovery, youmay need to format the card in your camera to correct the corruption.

Blinking light means your computer still in process reading your data from memory card. Higher capacity of memory card would make the computer need longer time to read it. Just be patient and don't unplug the USB cable.
If you think its too long, then you can unplug the cable data, put off the memory card and open in via card reader so you can download your pictures to PC.

Don't know how to download my pics or videos on the coputer


There are two way to upload your picture's or video's to your pc:

  1. You can upload video to the use of your camcorder connector. Connect your USB cable to your camcorder and plug it to your computer. You need to turn on your camcorder so that it will be recognized by the computer.
  2. You can upload also your video's with the use of memory card reader. Remove your memory card from your camcorder and insert it to the card reader. Plug the card reader to the computer. The computer will recognized the card. Now you can upload your photo's or video's.
Good luck!

IAM USING SONY CD..FOR TAKING PICTURES..AND NW .WHEN I WANNA COPY THE PICS IN MY PC..THE PICS R NOT GTNG DISPAYE??..WHAT CAN I DO TO VIEW THE PICS IN PC???


Hi,
camcorders will usually record videos in Tape/cd/dvd and the pictures will be saved on to a memory card, if available. So if your camcorder is having memory card then your pictures may be saved on to it. So remove the memory card from your camcorder, put it in any laptop card reader and transfer the pictures in it.
I hope this solution is useful to you.
Thanks

I took the scan disk out of the voyager to copy to my pc


To be able to do this you have to plug it back in then go to My computer. It should come up under removable storage. After that copy the files and paste them on your computer. Once you double click the picture you can see them.

From cell to Pc


Hi Big Bran,
There are 4 methods to transfer pics n videos from mobile to pc. They are through :
1) Bluetooth
2) Infrared Device
3) PC suite via USB data cable
4) MMC reader. ( memory card reader)
I think u r new user of this mobile phone. For u, I recommend u to use Memory card reader. It is very easy and fast.
Process : Take out memory card of ur mobile and insert in the MMC reader. ( It is easily found in the market and they provide u with adapter like a micro SD memory card to insert ur mini Memory card in it ). Join the MMC reader fitted with ur MMC in PC. Now, it shows a new drive like as CD drives. Now copy or transfer pics or mp3s or videos via it like u do in other drives(pen drives, floppy drives).
I think u may have mini Memory card. For it to be fit in MMC reader, u need a small casing adapter which is like a micro SD memory card. INsert ur MMC in it, and ur drive will be shown.
================================================
Looking for ur kind feedback,

Ativa memory card


The card is probably formatted with a FAT16 filesystem. Try reformatting the card with a FAT32 filesystem.
