Nothing on camera

I can view my photos using the camera, but when I plug it into a computer the folder says it's empty. What the hell?
Please help me rescue all my photos.

Had to grin - this sounds familiar.

Why the pix are buried layers down I don't understand either.
Check your "My Computer" with the camera attached to see if the system sees the storage of it.
It should list it as a "Removable Drive" and (I have a number of drives) assigns 'K' to the camera when it is attached.

If it is shown, double-click on the icon and it should open it without problem.
If it doesn't, you have some lousy driver missing - you may have to reinstall Oly's software.
If it opens there should be a folder shown; my Oly uses DCIM, which, when opened, shows 100OLYMP folder.
This opened shows whatever pix are there.

If nothing works, attach the camera and note that it has established communication with the system, then reboot.
This will often force Blindows to recognize and reinstall missing software ****.

Corrupt file sd card


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa (http://picasa.google.com).

Hi, the photos are visible in the Camera and not when connected to camera because in Windows the photos are hidden. You can view the hidden files by following below mentioned steps:

Please connect the Camera to the Computer, then open the Folder containing the Photos:

Click on Tools>Folder Options>View tab>select Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives option.

Then, click OK. Now the photos should be visible in Windows.

Please reply me if you face any problem in following the above mentioned steps.

To keep the photos on your computer after you turn off your computer, make sure that you copy the photos by selecting them and hitting (Ctrl + C) , create a new folder on your computer for them , open the folder and push (Ctrl + p) to paste them there, so that you can view them on your computer instead of off of the camera. I hope this helps!

Finepix J12 cannot upload photos onto computer.


Here's the best solution. Get a card reader for your card (available at Walmart, Kmart, Best Buy, etc.) and use it to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. Once there, you can do anything you like with them.

Pictures on my digital camera.Cant transfer them to the computer


I'm not sure you need any software to actually view camera pictures on xp, though there are many programs made for managing and embellishing pictures once you get them loaded into your computer's memory. Please go to this link for a general exposition of xp digital camera use.
Then connect your camera to your computer, and follow these instructions to download the photos into a file somewhere. (Maybe you want to create a folder in your My Pictures folder entitled Canon photos or something like that, just to keep them straight.) If you don't get an option to open the camera wizard, you can start it manually by going
to control panel>scanners and cameras>add a camera and the wizard should find your camera plugged in and start the download process...you can browse to the folder you created to have it store your photos there, or use the default. Once they're downloaded, you can access your photos using windows explorer.
But there are also a couple of great image viewer available as freeware: I can recommend both FastStone Image Viewer available here and Irfan View (available here)
Have fun, and don't worry about that red eye!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
