Most will put such on a CD as files if you don't want to buy a 20 buck card reader. While I've yet to personally have an issue with wipeout I know it can happen. I only have a handful of cameras but in my case I never swap. The 2GB cards fell to 47 bucks so I'm slowly upgrading.
You are right to be careful.
I have been given a memory card from a friend to use in my camera, but before i use the camera i need to download her images before deleting them.
I'm worried that as soon as i put her memory card in my camera the images will automatically delete? I think I read this somewhere...although i can't find any infomation in my camera manual.
So my question is, even though the photos have been taken on a completely different camera, will they still show up on my camera so i can download them to my computer? Really do not want to delete her photos.
Thanks for your help
