Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have recently purchased two hidden outdoor battery operated security camera/DVR's but as I am hopeless with technology I have been unable to work out how to use them. They record onto an SD card & I am at the stage that the laptop recognises the cards but no files show up - just a blank screen. I believe there are some files on the cards because when I hook into the TV monitor something flashes very fast on the screen that I can't make out but I need someone to set up the cameras properly &

I have the Canon Rebel XTi. I am getting a message the CF card has a problem. I am able to put card in computer and it opens the files that are on the card. The camera screen shows a blank space where the photo count should be. I have cleaned the connectors on the body of the camera and the lense. The camera is maybe 1 1/2 years old and I have taken maybe 10,000 photos. could the card need to be replaced? or could it be the camera itself :<(

Camera: Nikon Coolpix E4600 Have tried to transfer images from my Coolpix camera to my computer. Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer. Is it a problem with the cord itself? I've put the memory card which has the pictures into my laptop and transfered them successfully that way, which is why it leads me to believe the cord is the issue.

I have about 24 pictures on my XD card and I was trying to .rar them in one file on my PC but it was not working and so I ejected the XD card from the PC reader slot. When I put the XD card back in my camera, the message came up 'card needs to be initialized' (or similar words). I notice that to Initialize, it would erase all the files on the card which I do not want to do. Obviously, something has affected the formatting of the XD card whilst I was trying to zip the pictures. Is there some S/W

Do they make a devise where I can plug in a SD card out of my digital camera into it and hook up up to my LCD TV to view the pictures that's on the SD card. I know I can hook the camera up to the TV, But do they make a card reader that will hook up like to the A/V jacks or something else of my TV? Thanks...


Unless you have a newer TV with the built in slots already attached, chances are no you cannot. The camera in this case acts as a processor that is able to give the display output to the monitor (TV) and you can view it that way. All the TV is is a m ... Digital Cameras

Try all three of the listed programs, especially the third one from VaioSoft. But yes some of the pictures may be corrupted. Not much that you can do then. Also, if you format the card you may no longer be able to retrieve them. Here's the link t ... Canon PowerShot A710 IS Digital Camera
