I assume you meant your last sentence to say, "i have already tried, but CAN'T see picture from camera."

For the camera to know what to do with the pictures they have to be EXIF encoded. Exif info is embedded in the JPEG picture that tells you what settings were used to take a picture (there are many Exif viewers out there and many image viewers and recent photo editors are Exif aware). Another thing that's in the Exif is a thumbnail (this is what is shown on your camera's screen when viewing an image).

If you're trying to upload images that aren't Exif encoded, they won't be "seen" by the camera since the camera doesn't know what to do with them (although the images will still be on the card and can be transferred from computer to computer using the card).

There is an Exif editor, Exifer, downloadable from http://www.friedemann-schmidt.com/software/exifer/ but personally I never used it to add Exif info to a picture...only to change it.
