according to me, it must be password protected, or ur pc does not support that type of pics, another reason may be that ur pc does not allow external drive to be shown on desktop, hence for this, you can change settings in compoter, or if card is passwd protected ,insert password or format it if u forgot it by backing up the data http://www.tinyurl.com/9307740
To format your SD card you need the following SD card, SD memory card adapter, SD card reader on your P.C. first insert the memory card into card adapter, insert the adapter into the P.C, click start>my computer> Secure Digital (SD) card and then navigate into the folder named system folder, open the sub-folder MMCstore and you should be able to see your password and recover it, If you want to reset your password you should just format SD card by clicking start> right click on my computer and select manage> Disk management > go to your SD card, right click on it and select format and then start format.
What type of phone is it? Some (most?) phones will not connect to PC etc. without special software. Did you format the SD card before trying to use it.? Using SD? - format SD first before inserting to phone for photo copying. If pic are stuck on SD card, there are SW which can do file recovery on it. Some free. Last thing to consider, what format are pics? Is format compatible w/ printer?
On a PC with SD card slot, an SD card is handled pretty much the same way as any removable media. External SD card reader/writer devices with USB connectivity come for 10-20 US$. Make sure the little slider on the side of the SD is not set to "write protect" and you format it just like a floppy disk (Windows: right click on the media icon, and select "Format").
Copy the existing photos on to your PC, switch off the camera. Remove the SD card and format the SD-card using a SD-card reader, this will clear all the card contents. Now try using it in your Camera again. Ideally, you should be able to save photos on this SD card. Other way would be to insert another SD card into your camera and click photos and check whether those photos are being saved into the SD card(this can be done using display option in your digicam.)
Sounds like a MobileMate quirk Tanya. Use your USB cable connection to your PC/Camera interface and delete pics that way too see if this funny goes away.
If it does, and I believe it will, then it is a SanDisk issue not revising the File Allocation Table(FAT) after deleting the Pic File on the mem card.
You could also find out if this is just an SDHC SD card reader issue by using an older less dense standard 1 or 2Meg non-SDHC mem card in the reader and see if issue goes away.
The fallback of course to view and delete the pics on the camera before download, or download pics then note which pic file numbers you want deleted after viewing on PC, then put SD card back in camera and delete them there.
Another option for trial, is to cut and paste the whole DCIM folder, or sub pic folder to your PC from off the SD card using the card reader. The camera automatically generates subfolders under the DCIM folder if you completely remove(deleting by a cut or move), when you take your first picture on a camera with a DCIM but not sub pic folder. Try this first and I think you will find all pics will be deleted from camera that are in a subfolder under DCIM. If not, then cut or move the whole DCIM folder and create a new DCIM(empty) folder on the SD card using the PC and card reader. Of course using this method you cannot selective delete individual pics from the mem card. You would be deleting them all after the Folder cut or move from the SD card.
