Getting pictures to be viewable on camera from memory card
I thought I was helping a friend and cleared her memory card and burned and disk of images for her. Now she's mad cause she wanted to view them on her camera. Can I get them back on with a reader, the camera is a canon powershot sd600. Thanks
Re: getting pictures to be viewable on camera from memory...
Yes, you can easily copy back the pictures to the memory card through a card reader, but first you should reformat the card on the camera so that necessary folders can be created. There you'll find something like DCIM folder, create a new folder and copy back the pictures on that folder.

Try PC Inspector "Smart Recovery" from the following listing. Select "Intensive" mode from the File/Settings menu. The program may need to run all night in this mode. If this doesn't recover the photos, am afraid then that they're permanently gone.
Insert memory card in camera, go to camera menu, there is option Copy, select copy and transfer images from internal memory to memory stick.
2nd option is connect camera to computer by usb link without memory stick, go to my computer then removable disk, then picture folder, copy pictures and paste them on My Pictures.
Need further help, let me know.
It is possible that the memory of your camera got corrupted. You can try and format the memory and see if it will clear any errors and make the memory (card) available for use of the camera.
Should you want to try and recover any images stored in the memory card, it has to be a removable one that you can plug in to a card reader attached to a PC. Run data recovery software to hopefully recover whatever you can from the memory. You can also format the memory with your PC and use a disk checking utility to check for any other errors. Thereafter, if things are ok, it will be ready for use of the camera.
Hope this be of some use to you. Post back how things went or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Do you have a memeory card reader? They work a lot faster than cable transfer. Get one if you don't, for about $10 or so, or borrow one to test your card. Then see if your memory card (the "disk") displays your pictures onto the computer through the card reader. If it does, your friend might have physically damaged the USB cable connector on the camera or the card socket inside the battery compartment (or, of course, you might have done so yourself somehow). As long as you have the card reader you'll still be able to transfer images.
If the pictures don't show up on the card reader, it's more likely the card itself was damaged, though you say you tried another card. If you've already downloaded the pictures, try reformatting the card (which will erase everything) and then give it another shot.
Before you do anything else find a friend who's camera takes the same memory card and try it in their camera. If it doesn't work there try cleaning the contacts gently with a pencil eraser (make sure you remove any rubber pieces left behind) There is a locking mechanism on the side of the SD card. Make sure this isn't locked. If everything still fails it looks like you could have a faulty SD card. Borrow one to try to see if the fault in the camera disappears.
This camera has 32 MB of internal memory. Are you sure your pictures aren't being stored there. Read your manual and you can find out how to transfer them to the SD card once you've proved the card is working.
Also check your SD card in a card reader and if there's still any problems pop it back into the camera and format it.
To transfer pictures:
1. Remove the memory card from the camera.
2. Insert the memory card into the floppy disk adapter.
Make sure that you insert the memory card into the adapter with the gold side of the memory card facing you and to the right and the silver side of the adapter facing away from you.
3. Insert the floppy disk adapter into the diskette drive on your computer.
4. Double-click the PhotoMAX shortcut on your desktop to open the software.
5. Click Get Photo.
6. Click Album or FlashPath.
7. Click Downlod from FlashPath. The images appear as thumbnails on the album manager window.
8. Double-click the image that you want to edit. The image appears in the image tray.
9. Remove the FlashPath Floppy Disk Adapter from the diskette drive when you are done.
