Hi Everyone,

I copied several images (jpg & tif format) taken with my camera on earliar days from hard drive to a Flash Card using Camedia software and a card reader. When I check in Windows Explorer, I can see that the pictures were indeed transfered. I can open each of them by dubbel clicking on their respective file names.


On the other hand, after inserting said flash card back into my Olympus C-5060 cam, I get the message "No Picture" on the LCD screen.

Further more, in Windows Explorer can be seen:

"Removable Disk (J)\DCIM0OLYMP", where (J) is indeed said Flash Card.

What's the meaning of the 2 subfolders DCIM & 100OLYMP????

My goal for the transfering of the images: to view them on a 24" Flat TV screen.

Any help on this matter would be very much appreciated.

Regards and thanks in advance.

DCIM is the folder where most, if not all,digital cameras put their image folder by default. Different cameras will create folders with different names within DCIM--yours creates 100OLYMP, mine creates 100MLT29, etc. That folder (100OLYMP, in your case) is where the photos actually are stored by the camera, and where they need to be for the camera to know they're on the card.

You can put the card back in the reader, rename DCIM0OLYMP to 100OLYMP, create another folder called DCIM, then drag 100OLYMP into DCIM. Your camera should then be able to see the photos.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. Still having problems. I formatted the flashcard inside the cam. Made some new pictures. Using the card reader and Windows Explorer added some older pictures (also taken with same camera C-5060).Flash card back into camera, I can view the newly taken shots but for the added ones I got the message "Picture Error". Any idea what's going wrong here? Greetings

Did you do any editing on the photos you're trying to put back on the card? Are they in the same file format that the camera uses? If you've edited or cropped the photos or saved them in a different format, or even renamed themwith something other than the default numerical name format that the camera uses (for example, PIC0731 or 100-0756), the camera might not be able to "see" them.

Hi again,

Indeed all pictures I copied from hard drive to Flash card are photos that were edited and/or cropped in a paint program. To find out if this is the reason the camera does not recognize the files, I will try ff experiment:

Copy some 4 photos (taken with said camera) which were not edited from HD back to the Flashand at same timesome 4 photos which were edited. Then check what photos are recognized by the camera and which ones not. Let you known when done.

Regards.
