My card is quite new. I took some pictures when I was on holiday but when I inserted it into my card reader the images are not seen on the computer but when I playback while the card is in my camera the images are still there. I have tried doing a camera-computer transfer but the images are still not seen. I had four pictures from a previous trip on the same card and they were seen OK. Obviously I don't want to lose the pictures as they were from my holiday. Is there anything I can do? I don't think I did something wrong although I mistakenly put on FN which I think I have got rid of. Your help would be appreciated.

This can be from a combination of events if you are downloading from the camera. If you have been using the delete button it may have corrupted the memory card. An inexpensive card reader will eliminate all the hassle and download problems. There are many types on the market and even some computers have a card slot on the side of them. What you should do is purchase a reader to fit the card you have then remove the card from the camera and insert this into the card reader after the reader has been plugged into a USB port. The computer will look at this as an external memory device. Do not format the card in the computer the to programing between the camera and the computer are not compatible. Always format in the camera don't delete all images as it will mess up the card badly.
If there are no distortions on the picture seen on the camera viewfinder then there is some issue with the picture manager software. If the images seen on the PC are also showing clean pictures, then there fault on the transfer or the camera driver software. Remove the SD card and insert into the PC using the card reader- use in any laptop- if the picture is clean , then uninstall the camera driver and reinstall, then connect to transfer. If the fault is seen the download another version from the camera support site to be installed.
you need a class 4 sd card. i had a class 6 8gb card with this problem. took 200 pics on holiday, only the first 10 worked, the rest say cannot play image.. look at www.kingston.com to find compatible card.
1. Get a card reader.
2. Create a folder on your desktop.
3. Insert card into reader and plug it into a USB port.
4. An icon will appear on your desktop...probably called "no name"...double-click it, select your pictures and drag and drop them into the folder you created.
5. Eject your card reader.
6. Double-click on the new folder and enjoy your pictures.
There are most likely some "corrupted" images on your xD card. Very often a card reader "writes" data to the card while transferring or copying images into the computer. When you re-insert the card back into the camera, it doesn't recognize the new data (because it didn't create it), and gives the error, usually requiring a complete formatting be performed. There are also problems if you use a reader to rotate images, then re-install the card in the camera. The best way to accomplish what you were doing is to transfer the images into a folder on your computer, as the camera shot them (don't rotate them first). That way, you haven't altered any data on the card. For now, however, I suggest you format the card in the camera, so you can start with a "clean slate". Good luck.
A clearer indication of missing images would be useful - how do they know the images are 'missing' have they seen them previously from the card? If images have been deleted- accidentally then that's another story Download PC-Inspector from the web This is a free image /data retrieval program for such situations.
get a new cable. or a new card reader. i prefer card readers as i can take my camera around to various events, and if a friend wants an image, he can attach the reader to his computer (if nearby) and get what he wants. are you sure your computer can directly read smart media cards? possible it does, but not that common unless its fairly new. mark
Selecting the "format" option in the menu will wipe off your images. basically it reformats the memory card.
I would get a card reader, if you havent done so already. I worked with a student today & for some reason we couldn't transfer images from his camera directly to computer via usb + we were getting some error messages when trying to do so.
So, I ended up taking his memory card out & used a memory card reader to transfer the images to 'puter and it worked fine.
