JPEG doesn't show picture


Paula,
The pictures should be called xxxxxx.jpg. These are not the thumbnails. Your computer can always make thumbnails, but the jpg files should have a name and at least some content.
If you can't view the pictures, please don't delete the pictures on the card and please don't format the card.
Again try to copy the pictures to your computer, to a different folder and use the file browser to see how the pictures look.
If you deleted the pictures don't make any pictures on the card and use a recover program to retrieve the pictures. Almost every memory card firm does have such a program.

On these sites you find software to recover files (pictures and more) from a "damaged" memory card or even from a hard drive.
free software to recover your files on a memory card:
www.cardrecovery.com
www.wondershare.net with free trail
www.cardrescue.com with free evaluation version
http://www.memorycard.freedatarecoverysoftware.org
Some programs will show the deleted files, but only recover a few files. If you want to recover more files they want you to pay. If so, try another program on the list.

Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!


Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

When I connect the camera with a USB port computer can not recognize the camera and read the contents of flash memory i need help


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 any photo cataloging program.

My memory is connected through card reader in computer, "please insert a disk into drive f:" message will be displayed so pls help me and replymust


The "table-of-contents" on the memory-stick has become corrupted.

If you have pictures on that memory-stick that you want to "rescue", search online for "file scavenger" software.

If you think that the memory-card is "empty", put the memory-card back into your camera, and tell your camera to 'FORMAT' the memory-card, i.e., to initialize it back to the "factory" settings.

I have downloaded my pictures from my camera in error and now want to put them back into the camera - any ideas? Thanks Camera is an Olympus Stylus 700 Digital Camera PC is currently running Windows Vista.


Take out memory card from camera, put it in any generic memory card reader, plug it with computer, click My Computer and find any new drive letter there (mass storage or some thing) click that icon and now you are in memory card of camera.
Copy those pictures and paste them in picture folder in memory card. Unplug memory card from computer, put it back in camera and see those pictures. make sure picture file names that were taken from camera must not have been changed so camera will recognize them as valid file name.
Thanks.

How do I transfer pictures from my computer back on to my camera? Is it possible to transfer pictures back to your camera from the computer?


This doesn't work for all cameras, but it does work for some cameras.

1) Make SURE you have all the photos in your computer.

2) Put the memory card into your camera and follow the camera's instructions to reformat the card.

3) Take 1 new photo on the memory card.

4) Put the memory card in the card reader on your computer. If you connect the camera directly to the computer instead of using a card reader, then do that now.

5) If your computer tries to automatically copy or move the photos to the computer cancel the process.

6) Use Windows Explorer (or Finder, if you use a Mac) and open 2 windows. In one window, navigate to the drive that represents your memory card. In the other window navigate to the location of your photos on your computer. This is usually in your My Pictures or Pictures drive under your user account.

7) On the memory card you will usually find the photo is in a subfolder, it may be several folders down. There may also be a thumbnail file. To copy files from your computer back onto the memory card so they can be seen in the camera you need to copy the files back onto the card using:

A) The same filename structure;
B) Include a thumbnail file if the camera creates thumbnail files
C) The file needs to be in the right folder structure (determined in step 7 above).

If your camera makes and uses thumbnail files but you don't have them on your computer, then you probably can't get the camera to recognize the files even if you copy them back onto the memory card in the right place.

Good luck!

Problem with memory (xd) card and camera


Look for a manual lock next to your XD memory card slot on your computer. Your computer may not have one but there are a few that do.

If there isn't one, go to My Computer, look for your memory card in the window. Move the mouse over to the memory card and select properties. Make sure that the read only box isn't filled in. If it is, click on it until it is empty.

Copy the contents of the memory card to your computer. Reinsert the memory card into your camera and reformat the memory card in your camera for the utilities option on your camera. If it doesn't reformat, there could be something wrong with the memory card.

Pictures cant be viewed says no image-then wont take pics says card full?


try the memory card in a card reader and plug it into a computer. see if the computer can detect the card and the contents in it. if it does detect it then that means there is a problem with the camera not recognizing the card or files in it. if it does not detect it in the computer that means the memory card of the camera is the one having problems.
