First the pictures stored on your SD card are already files. There are many file types for graphic images I'm guessing you want to transfer the files on the SD card to your computer so you can work on them with Photoshop or other Photo Editor or maybe just print out hardcopy pictures. You will need a computer that comes equipped with a SD card reader slot. Then all you do is plug the card into the slot and the computer will treat it like another hard drive device and will assign a drive letter to it like E: or in my case J: At this point you can drag and drop the files on the SD card to folders on you PC. If you don't have a SD card reader slot then you will have to resort to other methods. Most modern digital cameras come with a special cable and proprietary software that will allow you to plug your camera directly into your PC through a USB port. My Canon SX 500 allows me to do this. This way you can transfer the pictures without having to remove the SD card from the camera.
Thats a slightly difficult problem. Have you tried the card on another reader? Just to eliminate the possibility that the card is not good. If it works on another reader the card reader you have may be bad or somehow got disconnected.
1. No signal from the tower (VIDEO CARD)
2. Bad cable or bent pin on the d-sub 9-15 pin vga connector.
3. Bad signal board inside the monitor itself.
Things to try:
1. another computer.
2. check the signal cable for bent pins.
3. check the video card in the tower.
Before you "think its a bad monitor" you always want to assume the computer first as computers are 9 times out of 10 why the monitor is not coming on such as BIOS errors, Bad video card, bad power supply etc etc.

I have not yet solved the problem. They are brand new monitors. Don´t see why I should need to pay to get them to work. I have worked with computers for years and years. Never before saw a monitor that didn´t work when it was new unless of course it was defective. Not your porblem I realize. I need Samsung to help me or stand behind it.
Thanks so much,
I have a similar problem with a 2 year old Samsung monitor. I have tried to make a screen dump of it, but the horizontal lines do not show up then. This I have read indicates that the problem is in the monitor and not the video card.
