The camera may be full. Check the picture counter on the display panel. If the camera displays "00" the camera is full, erase some pictures or transfer the pictures to your computer and then erase them. Another option would be to install a SmartMedia card to store more pictures. Also, when the camera is connected to your computer you can't use any of the controls on the camera itself. See Chapter 7 of the user's guide for instructions on taking pictures from you computer.

Copy from pc to camera


The software that comes with almost every camera, is used to make backups from the pictures on your camera. The backup device is thought to be a computer. So this software only allowed to move the pictures from the camera to the computer. lots of camera users don't even realise the have to install special software, to transfer the pictures from camera to computer.
Keeping all you computers only on one memory card in a camera is very dangerous, because there are lost of possibilities to lose all your pictures. But if you insist to put back pictures on the memory card, you should use a memory card reader connected to the computer. and copy the pictures from the computer to the memory card.
Don't try to copy pictures, made on other camera's, to the memory card that you us in your camera. Not all files are compatible, even not when they have the same name. So it could be, you have pictures from an other camera on your memory card and still you won't be able to view them on your camera display.

Iam unable to view the pictures I took with my former Easyshare. It says unreconized-file format. Is there a way I can view the pictures taken with my old camera?


Many cameras will not display pictures that were taken with a different type of camera. You should still be able to view those pictures on the original camera, a computer, or a digital photo frame.

If I may make a gentle suggestion, use your camera to take pictures. To display them, use something better suited for the task.

I snapped so many pictures with this camera, but when i wanted to view the pictures from the camera, its all showing file errors. pls what do i do


Hi,

The problem maybe with how the camera is saving the pictures. I recommend that you save the pictures to the camera card and put it in a card reader or plug the camera directly to a computer and use that to view the pictures. If the pictures are still the same then there is a problem with the camera.



Regards.

I want to download my photo's from camera to hp laptop


After you take pictures with your digital camera, you'll want to copy the pictures from your camera to your computer so you can print them, share them with others, and back them up for safe keeping. Once your pictures are on your computer, you can erase them from your camera, freeing up memory so you can take more pictures. You can also view your pictures on a larger screen and decide which ones are worth keeping. Some digital cameras come with software that helps you copy pictures from your camera to your computer. You can use this software, but you don't have to. Windows XP can copy pictures to your computer without requiring additional software. Here's how to copy your pictures using Windows XP: 1. First connect your digital camera to your computer. You can do this in two different ways: ?Use a USB cable. Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer. ?Use a memory card and memory card reader. A memory card reader is a piece of hardware that plugs right into your computer. You remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk. Tip: It's usually faster to use a memory card reader to copy your pictures than to connect your camera to your computer with a cable. 2. Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, Windows XP will detect the connection and ask you what you want to do with your pictures. If you connected your camera with a USB cable, click Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK. If you are using a memory card reader, click Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard, and then click OK. 3. When the Scanner and Camera Wizard appears, click Next. 4. All of the pictures on your camera (or in your camera's memory card) are now displayed on the Choose Pictures to Copy page. By default, Windows XP selects all of the pictures for downloading. If there are pictures you do not want to download, just clear the check box next to those pictures. At this stage, you can also rotate pictures that you took while holding your camera vertically. To rotate a picture, click it, and then click either the Rotate clockwise or Rotate counterclockwise button on the lower-left side of the page. When you have reviewed the pictures for downloading and rotated your vertical pictures, click Next. 5. On the Picture Name and Destination page, type a name for the group of pictures. (This name, plus a number to differentiate each picture, will be applied to each of the pictures you download; for example, if you name the group "Vacation," the pictures will be named "Vacation001," "Vacation002," and so on.) Click Browse, and select a folder in which to save your pictures. Tip: Create a new folder for each group of pictures you download. 6. If you want to erase the images from your camera's memory card to make space for new ones, select the Delete pictures from my device after copying them check box, and then click Next. The Scanner and Camera Wizard copies the pictures from your camera to the folder you specified and then removes the pictures from your camera's memory card. 7. On the Other Options page, you can choose to publish your pictures to a Web site or order prints. If you have finished working with your pictures, click Nothing, and then click Next. 8. On the final page of the wizard, click Finish. Windows XP opens a Windows Explorer window showing the pictures you downloaded from your camera. Your camera's memory card is now clean and ready to store new pictures. If you connected your camera to your computer using a USB cable, disconnect your camera. If you used a memory card reader, return the memory card to the camera. Your photos are now stored on your computer, ready for whatever you want to do with them, and your camera is ready to take more pictures. As with any important files, it's a good idea to make backup copies of your photos, in case anything happens to your computer

Viewing pictures on camera


When you rotated pictures you changed picture size and definition, that is the reason why camera does not display them again.
If you check file size, you will see that rotated pictures are smaller than regular ones.
There is no way to get picture to original definition once you reduce it, however if you use a program like Photoshop you can check size and definition on original pictures, and re-rotate and resize rotated pictures to send them back to the camera, quality will be poorer than originals. Attributes to check are length and width (preferably in pixels) and definition, then you save pictures as best quality.

Cannot access pics


Once you took pictures without a memory card, all pictures taken will automatically be saved on the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera.
When taking pictures with a memory card, all pictures are just saved on the memory card itself.
If you are seeing 100-757 on the LCD screen. It means that there are already 757 pictures taken from the first time you've used the camera.
It is possible that some of the pictures are in the internal memory and some are in the memory card.

STEPS to DOUBLE CHECK:
1) Remove memory card out of the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button
(lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the internal memory

2) Return memory card back in the camera
- Turn on camera
- View pictures on the internal memory
by just pressing on the PLAY mode button (
lowest of the 3 little buttons)
- Pictures seen are just the ones saved on the memory card itself

*** If you want to transfer pictures on the internal memory of the camera to your MEMORY CARD, you just have to follow the steps below:
- Make sure there is a memory card inside the camera
- Turn on camera
- Press on PLAY mode button to view pictures
- Press MENU/OK button
- Keep scrolling to the right until you see COPY TO CARD
- Select YES using the arrow keys
- Press MENU/OK to confirm
* When you've done these steps, all pictures from the INTERNAL MEMORY of the camera will be copied to your MEMORY CARD but it depends on the space left on your memory card

** If still, you could not view the pictures, it's possible that the pictures are really gone when you have transferred the previous pictures to your computer.

** Once you have transferred pictures to your PC, and you have deleted those on your camera, the FILE NAME of the pictures will not start from 100-001 again unless you have reset the file name on the settings of your camera.

In example, i already have 256 pictures on my camera so the filename reads 100-256 for the last picture taken. And then i decided to transfer those 256 pictures to my PC and i deleted those immediately after being transferred. So, as i took another picture, FILENAME will start with 100-257 if i have not reset
the FILE NAME settings to 100-001.

Hope i've helped you enough.

Picture has horizontal areas or differant colors and distortions


It sounds like the processor for the camera is messing up the picture. I suggest that you take the camera in to a Wolf Camera or any other camera oriented store
