I bought a new SDHC digital memory card for my new camera. It's an 8G card. I previously had a 2 G which worked fine.
I took pictures on the new card last night and I can view them fine on the camera monitor. I tried downloading (or uploading - not sure which is correct) them to my laptop last night. I have an HP laptop - about 2 years old. Paviliion.
Here are the steps I took:
1. Connected the cable to computer/camera and the message said "camera wasn't connected". I folllowed all steps and while I am a comptuer idiot, I DO know how to plug in a cable.
2. I removed the card and placed it in an external "multi card reader writer". I inserted it into my external drive and clicked on the F drive. Message was "Insert external hardware into F Drive" (or soemthing like that) - even though there WAS something inserted there.
3. I removed the 8G card and replaced it with the 2 G card into the same externarl reader writer and it worked fine.
I dont' think it's the card b/c I can view my pictures on the camera. I think there is a problem with the capability of my laptop to use this type of card. Is there any software I can download to make them compatible? If not, any other ideas or suggestions? Thanks!
