Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Hi, I am trying to figure out how to download photos without them all downloading every time & doubling up. Yes, I am new to this sort of thing so please help, as it is a chore to get rid of photos I have previously downloaded. (And because I am new at this, please try to explain it in a way a "not up to date" person can understand...). My many thanks in anticipation of you solving this problem for me, Rain.


Answers :

1. Buy a card reader similar to the one pictured below. They're not expensive.\0122. Create a folder on your desktop to use for downloading pictures.\0123. Plug your camera card in one end of the reader and the plug into a USB port on your computer.\0124. An icon may appear on your screen (you can double-click on it), Windows may offer to open the card for you....let them....if nothing appears on your screen, look in "my computer" for a "removable disc"...double-click on that.\0125. When your picture files open, you will find the dates they were taken on the right....select and highlight the ones you want and drag and drop them into the folder you created. Done!\012typrice_124.jpg

Why does the FinePix E510 pictures download from the camera at 72 dpi when the camera was set to take 500 megapixel photos? I cannot find any way to adjust this in the finepix manual or in online help. I was helping someone download pics from his new camera and tried both Adobe Photoshop album starter and the finepix software. But when i open a photo in Photoshop, it says the photo size is 72 DPI. (My nikon doesn't do this when downloaded.)

Using Sony CD-Rs I continue to get Disc Error messages after a few pictures, and then the pictures already taken are no longer available for download. Loosing many photos this way.

When my memory card ran out of space on my Olympus Digital E 500, I put in a new card. A "card error" message appeared on the screen. This has never happened before. Now neither card works and when I try to download the photos it asks me if I want to format the card. I assume that if I say "yes" and do format it, that it will erase all my photos. Is that correct?
