Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When transfering to computer does it empty the Camera?


\015 Does empting the camera clean the camera as empty?\015

Answers :

That depends on how you transfer the pictures. Most programs simply copy them, without deleting the originals. Some give you the option of deleting the originals after the copy. I recommend against using this, since you're going to want to make sure you've got them copied before deleting the originals.

If you want to delete the pictures, format the memory card AFTER you finish the transfer.

I have a Nikon d100. I have a 2GB Sandisk Extreme III that was full. I transferred the photos to my computer. Trashed the files on my computer so the card was empty. Put the card back into my camera and the camera is still showing the card as "Full" so won't take picture. I've checked the card on my computer and it is empty and the camera does indicate that there are no photos on the card for viewing. I have taken out the battery but that isn't working. Any ideas?

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and 'Nikon transfer' package from the disk that came with the box. I am using windows xp. Why does my computer not read the camera? When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!

Hi I have a Canon A460 which has worked fine. My problem is with the transfer of images to the computer. I get either a message saying camera not found or I get a message saying camera detected with a box underneath where I would expect to see zoombrowser or another software to launch the action. The box is empty so I can't select anything. This has only just happened recently. Probably around the time I installed a Canon MP270 printer/scanner (which is a pig to use). Thanks Pat

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.
