Question from a digital illiterate

Hi there, My dad's looking for a portable device which can basically store all his pictures and where he can look at them wherever he goes. He's not very digitally competent, so right now he just keeps buying these big memory cards so he won't ever have to delete pictures from his digital camera! I was looking at the new Creative Zen portable media center, and also the Archos Gmini and Archoz Video Recorder - but not sure which would be the best fit. He's also computer illiterate, so ideally he would like a device that can download pictures directly from his Sony cybershot camera (with just the USB) , instead of having to go through a PC... any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Try the Epson multi-media thing ( circuit city and Best buy have them in the photo department) they have 40 gb's of memory and load directly from the card.- great device- about 450 dollars- you need an adapter for memory stick- I didn't check to see if you could load from USB

Re: Question from a digital illiterate

That is an interesting question. The devices you mentioned still need a computer to load them. There has to be a device that will do what you want, because all you need is a portable digital camera photo storage device (plenty around) and a portable display device (plenty around). Surely someone put the two together. And so they did: Check out the FlashTrax by SmartDisk: http://www.smartdisk.com/

I don't think those picture can be recovered as those might have stored in the temporary memory for a while and every time he took another pic it might have over-written in the previous one..

Better remove the Micro SD card and try to connect to PC and check if its available in the card

I just purchased a GE E1486TW. It has 18MB of memory. I took 3 pictures and It said that the memory was full. Is this normal? This is my first digital camera. Thanks


You will need an additional memory device; such as an SD card; to store more pictures.
What you are currently using is only the internal memory, which is basically emergency backup for if your card is full or if theres no card inserted.
SD cards range in sizes and prices, but are relatively inexpensive to buy; any supplementary memory will give you more than 3 pictures, though.

No space left on memory stick.


Hello Sir\Madam,
Most digital cameras do have an internal memory which may be minimal or too small to store your pictures or videos, because of this memory stick/card are always good for storing pictures and videos due to the fact that it has enough spaces to store you data. And you can easily transfer your picture from your camera to your personal computer by using the USB cable that came with your camera. As soon as u connect it to your computer, it will detect it and automatically install the driver that will make the connection to work well, or better still install first on to your system the software that came with your camera for easy connection of your camera to your computer, then on the camera, select "Mass Storage" from the USB connection mode, automatically your memory stick or card will be detected on your computer and you can them open the folder where all your pictures is stored to retrieve then to your computer. If you have any problem with this, don't hesitate to inform me back
Regards

How do i get the date stamp to appear on my dad's camera?


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Just about any photo viewer/editor should be able to display this information.
To print this information, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Lines and circles across all of my pictures


I'm not sure if you still look here or you've already fixed your problem but it has to do with your ram on your computer. I had this problem before. I had a really old Fuji camera but upgraded to the e550 a while ago and these weird grainy lines would still be in my pictures. At first I thought there was something wrong with the camera but after testing it on my brother/mom/dad's computer they pictures came out perfect. I found out it was my ram. Since I was using the onboard video card and it was sharing my ram. One of my cards was corrupted. So if you have more than one ram card try eahc one by itself and see if the problem persists. Hope this helps anyone out there who has this problem.
