Question about Computers & Internet

My son loaded some pictures from his camera onto my laptop, but the laptop will not let me view them. I bought a memory stick thinking that I could load the pictures onto it, and then transfer them to my desk top. I'm I thinking correctly?, and if so how do I do this?

    When you say that the laptop will not let you view the pictures, do you mean you cannot open any of them, or you cannot see that there are picture files at all?

Maybe the pictures are corrupt files, if so what will transferring them to your desktop accomplish. If the files are good and you have the appropriate software to view them you should be able to on the laptop.

However if you want to try...

1) put in mem stick , when laptop recognizes it go into my computer

2) click on the icon for mem stick and minimize it

3) open my computer a 2nd time and click on drive pics are on

4) click on the first file / first pic and the while holding down shift key go to end of list of files that are the pics

5) rt click and press cut

6) then go into the other my computer open which should be the mem stick then rt click and hit paste

7) remove mem stick from laptop and place it in desktop

8) when desktop recognizes it , gather up all pic files with the shift key procedure done on laptop

rt click cut/copy

9) then go into c drive or applicable hard drive then rt click paste

Why the memory stick don't show the pics on the camera


There are several different memory sticks and the are not fully compatible. Be sure you bought the right memory stick for your camera Refer to the manual. Check in the computer if there are any pictures at all on the memory stick. Please don't copy pictures from another camera to the stick to view them on a camera. Most camera's only can show the jpg pictures that were shot with that oa a same camera. Even in one brand of camera's there can be differences in the file you want to view.

Computer won't read memory stick


SCMG - You won't be inserting it into your modem. But if the card fits snuggly and it seems to fit right, then you're probably where you need to be.

For all of you - it may be easier to connect the camera directly to the computer to download the pictures. All cameras come with the appropriate cable to connect the camera to a USB port. All you need to do is make the connection and then put the camera into "review" mode to view the pictures and Windows should automatically see the camera and ask if you want to download the pictures off of it.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Hello, My mom cannot get her pictures from her computer back onto her memory stick. She sees the pictures as if they are going to the memory stick, but when she hits view on her camera, no...


The pictures have to be in the correct format.
On the computer, use the Tools - View menu to change the options to 'do not hide file extensions'
Then compare the file extension of a picture that does display on the camera with a picture that does not display on the camera.
Let us know what the extensions are.

e.g. camera extension pictures may have .raw and your pictures which don't work may be .bmp ???

Screen reading memory card not initialized


Hello


  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Copying computer pix to memory stick


    The resolution is probably incorrect for the camera LCD. try changing their size to a standard size like 640x480 with a resize program.

    Memory stick


    Have you actually loaded them to the computer then loaded them back onto the stick? Cameras cant read images very often when loaded back from the computer- because they changed image type from EXIF[camera] to JPEG normal computer image file. This should not prevent you getting the printed however.
