Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

How do I use it, and what is it used for?


It is used to store data on. Usually this type of memory card is used in things like digital cameras to save pictures or recorded video on. You can access the recorded content by simply plugging the memory card into the USB stick that should come with the card and then plugging the card into your PC. Or usually cameras will also have a cable with it so you can directly connect your camera to your PC. It can also be used to store other data in the same way.

My memory card wasn't in the camera and now i can't get my pics off the camera and on to my pc


The way it works with my camera is when I connect it to the computer with a memory card in the camera, the computer sees the contents of the memory card only, but when I connect it with NO memory card in the camera, the computer sees the contents of the camera's internal memory.

Try removing the memory card from the camera, then connect the camera to the computer with the USB lead.

How do I print photos that are on my camera and not on my memory card?


By print I expect you mean copy the pictures to your computer and print from there?

The way it works with my camera (not a Samsung) is when I connect it to the computer with a memory card in the camera, the computer sees the contents of the memory card only, but when I connect it with NO memory card in the camera, the computer sees the contents of the camera's internal memory.

Try removing the memory card from the camera, then connect the camera to the computer (or printer if it will do that).

If you are accessing pictures by taking the memory card out of the camera and putting it into a card reader attached to the computer, then I don't know any way to get the camera memory into the card memory. If your camera has such a function, it ought to be in the manual, but I have not seen this function on other cameras.

ı have nikon s52.it says all time"write protected memory card".


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

ı can,t download my pıctures -


This camers uses 16MB of biult in memory and accepts SD or SDHC cards that may hold many GB. So your pics may be in 2 places.

First try resetting the camera to factory defaults with the OSD menu. Remove the SD card during this procedure. If this works, Fine.

If not: Since most of your pictures are probably on an SD card, the simple solution is to get a memory card adapter that handles your card, thereby avoiding connecting the camera to the PC. The SD card should show up in My Computer as a lettered HD. If it doesn't then the plot gets thicker.

If your pics are still munged, they may yet be retrievable with PC file recovery software like File Scavenger.

Problem in uploading pictures to my computer


Did you install the proper drivers for your camera? When installing the software for the camera the drivers should go in with it.

Some models of cameras can work as a type of memory stick. When connected to the USB port, the camera would be addressed as if it was a drive. Refer to the instruction manual for details.

If you get a card reader that is compatible to the memory card in the camera, you can remove the memory card from the camera and use the card reader. The reader should be connected to the computer via the USB port. It will be seen as a memory stick, and therefore it would be seen as a drive.

When i turn on my camera it says "Format Card error! Format Card?"


Hi, The only reason your camera displays the message "Format Card" is because it no longer recognizes the contents of the memory card.. A couple of things you can try: 1. Reformat of the memory card itself which can be done by the PC through the card reader/USB connection or the Format command in your camera (Menu/Set-up); 2. It maybe that the card is already faulty and therefore would require replacement. Good luck and kind regards.
