I can't download my photos onto the computer from my samsung l310w camera. the memory card is sandisk SDHD card 8gb. the camera doesn't seem to be compatible with the card for some reason - when trying to flick through pictures it flashes and eventually says file error. the computer will pick up the photos initially then won't transfer them. my printer has a memory card slot and even that won't recognise the card anymore!


The problem could be that the computer will not read the large card, I know my two year old Acer will not read the 8 gig cards directly from a card reader. The solution may be to revert back to smaller cards. ... Sakar 23070 Digital Camera

Importing Images Hi, When we take photos on our 500D we can preview the photos on the screen. When we place our Camera card into the computer and try to import the file they say that it is not a supported mode. Displaying the image number for example as IMG_0135.CR2 usually they will display CRW_0135. Is there a solution ?


The CR2 suffix means that the picture was taken in the RAW file format, a proprietary format. This requires that the images be processed by a software conversion to be 'readable' by the computer. The EOS Utility software that came with the camera wil ... Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

My son got a vivitar vs18b camera. The packaging says Mac compatible but when we put the image zone disk in nothing happens. I've tried clicking on the 2 files after opening the disk icon and nothing happens. I tried the Vivitar Website and found no solutions. One spot had to download the "experience software". I got a link to a blank page. Any ideas how to get the pictures from the camera to our Mac?


Try to get your money back for the camera. If not, go buy your son a better camera. Vivitar has no drivers for anything. Only what comes with the camera (WinXP only). Plus the viewfinder is junk, and the camera loses all store pictures when the b ... Digital Cameras

We purchased a nightwatcher security light and when we tried to look at the video/images on the sd card it's not recognizing any of the files on our computer. It shows that the card is nearly full but doesn't recognized any files. We've tried to open it in microsoft video, picasa, and just simply trying to open the folder to see what's in it. When we open the folder it says it's empty. When we tried to open through microsoft video it says there are no files on the disk.
