The picture was not in a folder which was strange. I started to have problems with it loading to my desktop after that. I rebooted my computer and it shows on my desk top, then a window comes up saying it was not ejected properly so i hit okay When I click on the drive all my desktop icons dissapear and the dropdown menus at the top flash on then off as the light on the g-drive does the same. Can you help. Is there a solution to this problem. I have all my photos on the g-drive

I have a Canon PowerShot SX130 IS, and I am no longer able to transfer shots from the camera to my laptop computer. I have a 4GB memory card, and there are 3566 pictures on it as of now. I had no problem...


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.

As I connect the camera to the computer, the recent pictures I to


Nothing is wrong. The file names of the recent pictures probably duplicate those of your old pictures. Your computer is probably caching the images associated with those names until you double-click on them.

Since you declined to specify the type of computer and the software you're using, I'm afraid I can't tell you how to clear the cache. I also assume you're not really connecting your 35mm SLR camera to your computer.

From the question, I'm going to assume we're dealing with some kind of digital camera despite the fact that you posted the question in a film camera thread.

It seems as if the computer operating system or whatever program you're using is displaying cached thumbnails. For example, if you have a file named DSC_0003.JPG, the computer is showing you the thumbnail from the last file named DSC_0003.JPG it's seen. If there's a "Refresh" item in the menu (possibly in the View menu), try it and see if everything refreshes.

If that's not the problem, could you specify the make and model camera, whether you're connecting the camera to the computer or putting the card into a card reader, the computer operating system and version, and what program you're using to view your pictures.

Sounds like there is a fault in the SD card.

Try an alt. card reader and computer.

Hopefully you will have the chance to retrieve the pics. If not ;(

Once pics are transferred. The SD card needs to be formatted. Remember this will delete all data on the card.

Card Error


Are you getting this error with the card?

If so, insert the card into the computer. Make sure you get all the files off before you continue. Then go to my computer, right click on the drive, click properties, click the tools tab and click check now. Just do Automatically fix file system errors and click start. This should successfully find errors if present on the card and fix it. You may lose a picture or two if you don't transfer all of them first. Or you could format the card by right clicking on the card drive and clicking format.

If you get the error on the camera without the card in it, turn it on and click mode button twice to get to the picture display (it should be a black screen with "memory error" on top). Then press menu and use the 4-way button to go to the right for Setup. Then use the 4-way button to go down to format to format the camera.

This should fix it.

Question mark when turn on laptop


Unfortunately, the clicking sound means that the hard drive is bad. That is why it will not boot. If it is under warranty, call Apple support. 800.275.2273 in the US.
800.263.3394 in Canada

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Fuji Finepix XD card was being used last night


When you recieve a "Card Error" or "Card Not Initialized" message, this indicates that your memory may be temporarily corrupted. This can be due to not formatting your memory card on a consistent basis. Most consumers will use the "delete all" feature and continue to take pictures. By doing this, the file format of the card may become unstable.

We recommend formatting your memory card in your camera after saving the images from your previous shooting session. Once a memory card is formatted, the images will not be recoverable.
