Canon power shot sd1000 won't connect to my computer anymore. The computer does not sense that there are pictures on the camera!

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.

Is there a way to retrieve photos taken on a canon eos rebel t3 when no memory card was inserted?


I'm afraid not. The camera does not have any memory to store photos. You can take one photo and look at it on the screen to see how the camera works, but this is primarily for demonstration purposes. Shooting without a memory card is like shooting an old film camera without any film loaded. You can go through the motions of taking a picture, but nothing is stored permanently.

Memory full after about 20 pictures should I be able to take more I come back download and it still only lets me have about 20 pictures each time.This with my 5105.


The number of photos you can shoot depends upon the size of the memory card, you must have a small memory card in your camera . Try inserting a 4Gb to 8Gb memory card in your camera.

My camera the mercury cyberpix 2-210s only take 20 or so pictures and has a memory card of 8 mb and I don;t understand why.


Your Mercury Cyberpix S-210S has an internal memory of 16MB and can be expanded using an SD/MMC Card up to 512MB.Since the picture you capture using this 2 Megapixel camera has an approximate resolution of 1600*1200 and a size of approximately 400kB you can store only around 18 to 20 photos in an 8MB Memory Card.So if you want to store more pictures you have to insert a Memory Card of bigger capacity.Remember the maximum Memory Card capacity supported on your camera is 512MB.Thanks for choosing Fixya.

What does unidentified image mean?


The card has become corrupted. First make sure that you have downloaded and backed up all the pictures that you wish to keep from the card. If your computer does not recognize them from the card, you may need to use recovery software. Here's some freeware that's very good:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered and backed up your photos, format the card in your camera to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

After taking 20 photos says memory card is full


You did not mention the make or model of the camera. Your symptoms seem to indicate you are using internal memory rather than the card. Card typically hold from 200-2,000 high quality photos (depending on the size of the card and the camera).

Another possibility is that you have a high end camera and are shooting in the RAW format. RAW is only for the more experienced users who post process their work. If this is the case switch to JPG.

Note reducing the picture size only makes the pictures lower quality and is only useful if you only post them on the web.
