Can I copy pictures from my PC back into the memory stick and view the pictures on the camera. I have tried this and although the pictures seem to be held in the camera memory stick I cannot view them, the lcd on the camera says no file. Any ideas anybody
Thanks Delithran, I will try and check that,but I normally download the camera to "my pictures" on the PC (XP). So I'm not sure if that changes the format.
Also how do check what format a picture is I presume you right click the properties of the picture. If it is not format you require can it be changed?
I tried opening the picture in paint and then saving it as jpeg(as suggested by Delithran), but still I can't display the photo from the memory stick. I also checked on the camera menu and I noticed that there was an option for tiff format,. I tried that also but still unable to write back into the memory stick and display picture. In fact I not sure if it does take pictres as tiff, because now if I select tiff option I get message no memory space even without a single photo on the memory stick.
I know that my camera creates a folder on the (flash) memory card and stores images there....so... Are you dropping your images straight onto the top level of the card or into a folder - as your camera might be looking for a folder to read the images from.
Your sony can use tiffs but they are a great deal bigger than jpegs (and better quality), so you might not have a big enough card to accomodate them. Out of interest - what size card are you using?
Tomson, I'm using an 8mb card, I going to buy a bigger memory stick soon, but I have just tried using in my camera in tiff mode and I get the message no memory space even though I have no pictures on the m/stick. I have formatted my m/stick to try and make sure it is fully empty, but I am not convinced it is because surely with 8mb space I should be able to take at least one picture?
When I down load to the m/stick I just drag & drop into the F drive(m/stick) on My Computer a picture from My Pictures, I have not seen any option for a folder.
OK, take a photo then attach the cam to your pc. Double click on your f drive and see if there is a folder on there, if there is open it and keep opening any others until you drill down to the image files (prob named summut like pic000.1jpg). Now try dropping your images in next to the photo you've just taken.
I've just tried this on my minolta and it seems to work, maybe your sony will do similar things.
As for tiff files - my 3.3 megapixel cam produces tiffs of about 9mb, So your 8mb memory stick is a tad small. If you want to give tiffs a go you'll have to drop the resolution a bit.
Hi Tomson, sorry about the delay, but I tried out what you said but it still does not work. I have found the pictures are loading back into the camera but I cannot view them on the camera.
I think I'm going to buy a software program by Ulead DVD which burns the pictures on a CD-R and then that can be played back on my DVD player onto the TV. Then I will not need to put pictures back into my camera to view on TV.
