Is it possible to transfer the information on my memory card to a CD? My boss just told me to "make a copy of the memory card", which really threw me off. I'm assuming that he means to simply transfer the information on the old memory card to the new one we're buying, but I really have no clue how this works. Anyone help? Let's be honest, did anyone really understand the question?

IF he's meaning to copy the stuff from one memory card to a new one...just copy all the info from the old one to a folder on your desktop...then copy it back over to the new card when you get it..

01 – TheNewY2K – [Copy Memory Card to CD]
14th Feb 2006

Is it possible to transfer the information on my memory card to a CD?


Yes it is possible – You will need -

(1) – [Memory Card Reader] Compatible to PC & Memory Card
(2) – [CD ROM R/W Drive] + A CD ROM Drive – [Read / Write Application]

The quickest method – Use – [Windows Explorer]

(1) – Open [Windows Explorer]
(2) – Open [My Computer]
(3) – Insert Memory Card into Reader Slot compatible to Memory Card
(4) – Locate [Memory Card] with [Explorer] & Highlight
(5) – Copy [Memory Card]
(6) – Create Memory Card [Folder]
(7) – Paste Memory Card in [Folder]
(8) – Open CD Read/Write Application
(9) – Run Application to – Write Memory Card Folder – to CD
(10)– Now you have [2] copies of Memory Card

[1] – On a CD to present to your boss
[2] – On PC in Folder so you can create a 2nd CD – when your boss misplaces 1st CD

I'm assuming that he means to simply transfer the information on the old memory card to the new one we're buying,


Doing it this way – You will be ready for whatever –To copy to new Memory Card –

(1) – Open [Windows Explorer]
(2) – Locate [Memory Card Folder]
(3) – Copy [Memory Card Folder]
(4) – Insert New Memory Card into Compatible Reader Slot
(5) – Paste [Memory Card Folder] into new Memory Card
(6) – Remove new Memory Card & present to your boss

Let's be honest, did anyone really understand the question?

This is probably a terrible question to be asking, but how do I access the information on the memory card? Through Control Panel?

You need to have a Memory Card Reader installed in PC 1st – Then you need to insert Memory Card into the Reader’s Compatible Memory Card Slot

Next Open Control Panel –

(1) – Press [Start Button]
(2) – Highlight [Settings]
(3) – Open –[Control Panel]
(4) – You should see Memory Card listed as a [Drive] with a name of Memory Card
(5) – Follow instructions in my – [Post-01] – on this subject
