If the pictures are safely downloaded to your computer, then you can safely erase the card by formatting (initializing) it in the camera. If they are not, then don't format (initialize). Take the card to a store like Walmart and use their picture kiosk machines to either print your pics or save them to a CD.

Well my camera is a Casio Exilim Anti-shake DSP. When i put all my photos onto my laptop i tried to put them back on the card. But after i tried i turned on the camera and it says "MEMORY FULL"...


Okay, you put your pictures on the computer hard drive but, the pictures will still be on the card until you format the memory card in the camera. So then you loaded the pictures back on the card so in fact you have two sets of the same pictures on the memory card maxing out the cared capacity. I doubt they will show on the camera because there will be different file formats one from the camera and another from the computer. So to clean things up first make sure you have your pictures on the computer hard drive then safely remove hardware or eject the camera memory card and unplug the cable. then go into your camera settings looking for "Format" might also say initialize but format is pretty well universal anyway find format and follow the screen. Formatting cleans off the memory card and reformat the card back to new to receive more pictures.

Cybershot DSC-P8/P10/P12 problem


The camera may have encounter some damage on that incidenst , what you can try first here is to remove the battery for about 24 hours and after that check if you still ahve teh same problem, but if you're concern in transferring photos to your computer you can still do that using a card reader where you can put the memory card and conenct to the computer....

Took memory card out to show pictures in new laptop. When done put memory card back in camera. Camera shows number of pictures listed but when you try to view the pictures the memory card says that it is...


Possibly, but you may no longer be able to view them on your camera. If you hadn't saved your pictures to your computer yet, try to do so. If your computer also has a problem seeing the pictures, you may need to use recovery software (see this link). Finally, after you've saved your photos to your camera, you should format the card in your camera to rejuvenate the card. If prompted to format your card by your computer, don't do it. It uses a different file handling structure than your camera.

Canyou get pictures put back on the memory card once they are downloaded to the computer?


Yes, you can use a card reader or use window> Mycomputer> camera as a card reader to put the pictures backo n the memory card. It can be as simple as find the pictures and drag them on to the cad. the problem is that most cameras will NOT display them once they are put back on the card. So it may be a futile exercise if you are trying to put the picture back on the card to then display them on the camera or on TV using the Av cable.

I have downloaded my pictures from my camera in error and now want to put them back into the camera - any ideas? Thanks Camera is an Olympus Stylus 700 Digital Camera PC is currently running Windows Vista.


Take out memory card from camera, put it in any generic memory card reader, plug it with computer, click My Computer and find any new drive letter there (mass storage or some thing) click that icon and now you are in memory card of camera.
Copy those pictures and paste them in picture folder in memory card. Unplug memory card from computer, put it back in camera and see those pictures. make sure picture file names that were taken from camera must not have been changed so camera will recognize them as valid file name.
Thanks.

Canon SD1200 IS won't save pictures to the memory card.


This Canon uses an SD memory card (previous Canon used CF cards).
The SD memory card has a "slide switch" that locks the card.
Look at the SD memory card and move the switch back and forth, then switch it all the way to the UNLOCK position. Put back in the camera and format the card, then use it.

Since this is a 10Megapixel camera, use at least a 2GB SD memory card. A 2GB SD card will hold 700 pictures, or so, in the best setting.

Hope this helps!

How do I transfer pictures from my computer back on to my camera? Is it possible to transfer pictures back to your camera from the computer?


This doesn't work for all cameras, but it does work for some cameras.

1) Make SURE you have all the photos in your computer.

2) Put the memory card into your camera and follow the camera's instructions to reformat the card.

3) Take 1 new photo on the memory card.

4) Put the memory card in the card reader on your computer. If you connect the camera directly to the computer instead of using a card reader, then do that now.

5) If your computer tries to automatically copy or move the photos to the computer cancel the process.

6) Use Windows Explorer (or Finder, if you use a Mac) and open 2 windows. In one window, navigate to the drive that represents your memory card. In the other window navigate to the location of your photos on your computer. This is usually in your My Pictures or Pictures drive under your user account.

7) On the memory card you will usually find the photo is in a subfolder, it may be several folders down. There may also be a thumbnail file. To copy files from your computer back onto the memory card so they can be seen in the camera you need to copy the files back onto the card using:

A) The same filename structure;
B) Include a thumbnail file if the camera creates thumbnail files
C) The file needs to be in the right folder structure (determined in step 7 above).

If your camera makes and uses thumbnail files but you don't have them on your computer, then you probably can't get the camera to recognize the files even if you copy them back onto the memory card in the right place.

Good luck!

Help with kodak M753 camera and memory card!


If you format the card, the pictures are gone leaving you with a blank memory card.

Format the card in your camera, then load it up in your computer and see if the cycle goes away.

Once you get a picture on the memory card and in your computer, keep an eye on the memory specs reporting on the computer and see if there is anything unusual. I've heard of a few defective cards but its rare.

Try putting the card in the camera and in the menu, select 'FORMAT' this will totally wipe the memory card, ready for use. You will find plenty replacement cables on Ebay, for about £7.00-8.00
