I have pictures in the camera without a card. I bought a card, and want to transfer the pictures to the card, but I'm wary of the manual's warning (on page 36): "If you run [Format] on the memory, all images... will be deleted."
I can presume this refers only to images on the card, but it doesn't specify this, and I want to take new pictures - not chances - with my old pictures, No one I've asked can answer definitively.

Re: New memory card.
See if there is a copy feature in menus where you can internally copy from internal memory to card-kodaks and some other manufs offer this feature-i would offload internal pics w/usb to computer and then just start using new card-get a memory card reader also and you can put from comp back to memory card w/reader-no need normally to format new memory card-just don't format internal or you will lose pics
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.
I'm glad to provide the steps to transfer images from Internal Memory of the Camera. When the camera does not have a memory card in it, the images are
saved by default to the camera's internal memory, which holds different
amounts of images based on how many megapixels are built into the
internal memory and what image quality and compression are selected in
the camera's menu. Once a memory\picture card is inserted in the camera,
the camera then saves the photos to the memory\picture card and ignores
the internal memory.
There are two ways to transfer the images from the internal memory.
To transfer photos to a computer from the internal memory using the
USB cable, first remove the memory card from the camera. Then, when the
camera is connected, the computer and software will only see what is in
the internal memory and transfer those photos or videos. During the
transfer process, the computer makes copies of the photos and videos-the
original images remain in the internal memory. After the transfer is
complete and the camera is safely disconnected from the computer, the
contents of the internal memory can be deleted by using the MEMORY
FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in the camera's menus.
The other way to transfer photos from the internal memory is to
transfer them to the memory\picture card using the BACKUP function in
the SETUP menu. If there is no memory\picture card in the camera, the
BACKUP function is grayed-out. During BACKUP, copies of the images are
transferred to the memory\picture card-the original images remain in the
internal memory. After the BACKUP is complete, the internal memory can
be cleared by removing the memory\picture card and formatting the
internal memory using the MEMORY FORMAT function in the SETUP menu in
the camera's menus.
Note: When the camera is connected to a computer using the USB cable with a
memory\picture card in the memory\picture card slot, the computer will
only see the contents of the memory\picture card.
Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any additional help.
Put the memory stick inside the camera. Then open the photos which is save in your camera memory. Select them all & then you find a option Send to memory card or copy to memory card. Select that and press ok. Your photos transfer from camera memory to memory stick.
A card access error may indicate that an xD-Picture Card memory card is in a write-protected condition. xD-Picture Card memory cards have a special protection feature to ensure that your pictures are kept safe.
During this condition, you can still use the printer for printing and saving photos from the xD-Picture Card to a secure location, such as the computer hard drive.
To resolve this error, try the following:
Reinsert the xD-Picture Card memory card into your camera and turn on the camera. In most cases, the camera automatically makes the necessary changes.
Reformat the xD-Picture Card memory card. See the documentation that came with your camera for instructions on reformatting the memory card. Note that this process erases the pictures currently saved to your memory card. To save these pictures, transfer them to the computer before reformatting the memory card. Once you reformat the memory card, transfer those photos back to the memory card using the computer.
I don't know in which country you live (this is helpful to know!), but in most stores offering cameras and many offering electronic items, you should be able to procure a kit of adaptors that will include a cable to use with them.
In the US at least, Wal-Mart, Best buy, Circuit City and Radio Shack are likely sources.
Elsewhere (?) you are on your own.
