Re: What can I do with the images already on my digital...

You will need to archive or save your images either directly on your computer or to another form of removable storage media. The nice part about this is that you have many options to choose from - some relatively inexpensive. You can transfer your images to your computer's hard drive, but we don't recommend this as the best long term solution. (Pictures can quickly accumulate and take up a lot of storage space which can slow down the speed and operation of your computer. Also, if your computer crashes, and you do not have a backup disk, you could loose your pictures.) A better solution is to archive and index your images through one of the following removable storage options: * CD-R / CD-RW Drives (CD-RW drives allow you to write new data to this type of disk by overwriting old data.). This is the most common type of long-term storage, since recordable CD drives are common and the disks are inexpensive. Each disk also holds up to 650-700MB worth of pictures and other files. * External hard drive * Zip or Jaz Drives * DVD recorders Some internet photo web sites will allow you to download and store your images with them. The idea is that you will order prints from them when you decide you are ready for them. Prices and fees may apply depending on the site. There is no single storage medium that suits every need and budget. The key is to select the one that works best for you.

Kodak M1033 does not recognize memory card


  1. Turn camera on
  2. Push the options/settings button (the button next to the view/playback button)
  3. On the Capture Screen move over to "Setup"
  4. Move down to "Image Storage" and make sure its set to "Auto" {if not select it and set it to Auto}
  5. If already set to Auto, change to Internal Memory.
  6. Power off and power back on then follow steps 1-4 to set back to Auto.
If this still doesn't work, backup pictures from internal memory to computer then delete all pictures on internal memery. Camera should automatically prompt you to change to memory card.

Why does my Fun! Digital 320 camera hold more than 18 images?


The literature packaged with the Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera does indicate that the maximum number of images is 18. However, the actual number of images is, in part, dependent on the complexity of the scenes you are trying to capture. Scenes that are complex (contain a high degree of detail) require more space on the camera's memory chip. Photos of less complex scenes (not much detail in the photo) take up a lesser amount of the camera's memory, freeing up space for additional images to be stored.

How are images stored in the camera?


images are stored in either internal flash memory or optional removable, reusable CompactFlash cards. Providing both internal and removable storage offers users maximum storage flexibility. Internal camera memory ensures that the camera is always ready to capture pictures, even if the optional memory cards have been misplaced, lost or damaged. Optional storage cards enable users to expand storage capacity according to their usage needs. Since the pictures are stored in flash memory chips, pictures can be retained for up to one year without power.

E-mailing photos


JPEG format storage is ideal for posting your photos to the Internet and for e-mailing them to friends. (It’s also useful for archiving when you've finished editing them and need to save storage space.) The compressed images still look good on-screen and contain a relatively large amount of information in the shrunken file. JPEG storage is great for maximizing space but not for maintaining image quality. If you want to get smaller files for archiving, use minimal JPEG compression (high quality/low compression). The ideal compression is lossless, which means there's no discernible drop in image quality even though the file size has decreased.

Error: "Insufficient free space on startup disk"


Nikon View requires at least twice as much free space on the startup disk as the size of the CF Card being used to transfer images. For example, to transfer images from a 1GB card you will need at least 2GB free space for temporary storage while the images are transfered. The free space must be on the hard disk that the operating system is starting up from, even if the destination for the transfer is on a different drive.
