How do I use the memory stick in my computer to download photos?


Most computers have a universal card reader, your card should be a SD, Sony ProDuo, XD....etc, make sure the contacts are inserted correctly, if inserted the wrong way you can damage the computer card reader contacts or the camera card contacts. You can also insert the card and go to Computer and look for the Drive Letter for your camera card, click on that and it should open the cameras card to view the photos.

You can purchase a Targus card reader from Walmart which will plug into a USB connector on your computer. Directions on it's usage are included with the card reader. The package says it is compatible with SDHC SD/MMC, XD, Memory Stick, Pro Duo, and Magic Gate.I ran into a problem with the Targus TGR-CRD25 when trying to read an XD or SD memory card 1GB or bigger. Targus fixed it with a note on their web site:
To operate plug card reader into the USB port, go into "My Computer", click "Removeable disk drive", insert your memory card into the card slot and upload your data. Please remove your memory card before disconnecting the card reader.

Where on the reader do I insert an Olympus xd picture card (M512 MB) ?


An USB memeory card reader should have several slots to insert the various memory cards.
You insert the memory card into the correct slot on the card reader and then connect the CARD reader with the USB cable into the USB port on your computer.
The computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then copy the photos off the memory card into your computer.

Nothing happens when I insert XD card into pc


That's because there is either a defective card slot or the driver for the card slot is defective or not installed at all

Was this card slot (XD card slot) working before?

If it was, then you must reinstall the memory card drivers.

If after the driver reinstallation does not solve this issue, then you may have a broken memory card reader and needs to be replaced.

Or you can go around the problem by geting a separate card reader for Xd cards.

I hope this helps you :)

Can i insert this type of memory card into the slot into the computer directly? it says on my laptop that sd, xd and M (symbol for pro duo? )can be inserted. But when i try to insert it, it doesn't appear...


it is advisable to buy a AIO (All in one) card reader, you can use this to many different type of memory card, the built in slot for memory card in your laptop sometimes only suite to a single type or model (ex. SD slot..MMC Slot etc.)

in your case your memory card is not fit to it, don't force it you might damaged your card

Internal pics


if it's just seen on the XD card, then those pics were not saved in the internal/built in memory of the camera. Anyway, if you want to delete pics in the XD memory, just insert it in the card reader of your computer then just delete the pictures or format the memory card.

cheers!

Faulty memory card


I suggest you purchase a memory card reader for your desktop/laptop pc and hopefully the card reader will do the trick, do not risk the camera with a faulty memory card, rather purchase a new card....
