I know you can upload your pictures from a memory card (viaa UVB cable)to the computer. But I'd like to know if it's possible to transferthose pictures backto your memory card. In other words, can you reload a memory card?

I want to have pictures developed off of my memory cardinstead of transferring them firstonto a blank CD.

Yes, you can load pictures (from your computer)on to your memory card. Be advised that some cameras may not display modified pictures, however. But if all you want to do is take them to a local shop for printing, you should be OK.

I would not necessarily recommend using your memory card to get pictures down to local shop. Besides the remote chance of loosing your card, I would worry somewhat that the card could be damaged by the shop, if you don't know what equipment / setupthey are using. I would consider using a CD-RW.

I have to agree with plg3.

I would NEVER send/give my memory card to a shop to have prints made.

To make a CD-R, just burn your photos to a CD using any commercial CD burning software.

If you have a USB card reader connected to your PC your card should show up as a 'Removable Drive'. All you need to do is to copy your files to that drive using ordinary windows operations (i.e., drag and drop, copy/ paste).

I'm not sure if your camera supports file write operations from the USB port.

Caution, don't use windows (DOS) commands to format the card, only format your card using the camera.

While your camera is connected to your computer, go into my computer. If your camera shows up as a removable drive, after editing just use the "save as" function and select your camera as the destination. If your camera does not support writing, you will have to use a card reader. In that case, the steps are the same..you would just select the card reader as the "save as" destination. Or if you desire you could drag and drop.

That being said, I agree, I would not take my card to the lab to have pictures made. I would use a cd-rw. Also, many retailers (such as Walmart) allow you to send the files via the internet and then you would just pick the pictures up when they are done.

It's still not downloading, I'm going to have to bring it in to a camera shop again.

Because just abouteveryone has mentioned it, I wantall of youto know, I don't give my mc to anyone. When I go to Walgreen's I use their editing machineto enhance my picturesand alsopick out the onesI like thebest. And when I'm finished I push a button and take out my mc out of the machine. This is alldone automatically. The clerk just develops the pictures, the mc stays with me. Now is everyone happy??

To get modified images back on to many models of camera, you need David Taylor's "TVWriter", designed originally for making slide shows using a digicam and a TV, from http://www.satsignal.net/. It was 20ukpound shareware when I bought it a couple of years ago. You can choose the resolution you want, and you'll need better resolution if you want prints than if you just want to see the images on TV.

You'll need to have your memory card formatted in the camera if it's to recognise the file structure.

Good luck,
