My camera automatically saves images to it's internal hard drive (or flash drive) I have my SD memory card inserted, the camera just will not save to it. Anyone know why it's doing this? Or maybe how I can copy the images on the flash to the SD card? I went through the menu and saw nothing.

Please save any images to your desktop that you want to keep. Access format function in camera's setup menu and format both SD card and internal camera memory to clear all data. After formatting, perform a sys reset that is also found in the setup menu. If your camera still cannot save images to the SD card after performing format and sys reset, then the card reader/writer is probably broken.

Are you saving the picture to the internal flash memory or an external SD card?
1) The internal memory will only hold 16MB of pictures, check if it's full.
2) The external SD memory can only be up to 1GB in size, anything bigger will not be recognized by the camera 1. Make sure the SD card is not "locked". Some SD cards have a little switch to prevent them to be written into. 2. SD card should be formatted by the camera preferably or as the FAT format in your PC.
Does this help you in any way? Please give us more information as to how you are saving them and/or any further questions you may have.
The pictures that are stored on your camera memory cannot be transferred to the SD Memory Card. They must be downloaded to your computer first and then transferred via a card reader, if you intend to get them to the SD Memory Card. The two memory areas, internal and SD memory work separate of each other and the camera only operates from one. IF the system detect SD Memory than that is where the images are saved, if not, they automatically go to the internal memory.
You have to upload your images from your camera to your computer and save and delete the pictures on your camera. You can buy SD memory card which can store lot more images than the internal memory. If you will be using the SD card, you have to select from the menu that you want the camera to write images on the external memory instead of the internal memory. You can upload images on the camera to your computer through USB cable. The cable is cheap if you buy from eBay especially ones that are being sold from Hong Kong. USB cable from Hong Kong worked well on my Kodak.
You can only access the internal memory, when there is no card in the camera. So, turn off the camera, remove the card, connect to the computer and save the images to the computer. After checking that images are saved, you can delete the images in the internal memory, before inserting the card again.
Check the manual. Most digital cameras give you the option to save to an internal memory or an SD card(or whatever your camera takes). If it doesn't have an internal memory...that may force you to have a memory card in so you can keep the images. Good luck.
