Transferring photos from PC to SD memory card

by djr1904 / January 5, 2007 6:50 AM PST

I have a Canon S2 IS. To get my pictures from the camera to my PC, I just connect the USB cable and copy/paste. But for Christmas, I received a digital picture frame, the kind you can plug a memory card into and show multiple digital photos.

I would like to be able to choose our best 10-12 photos, copy them to a small memory card, and plug it into the digital frame. I assumed I would be able to plug this small memory card into my camera, then copy and paste the photos from the PC on to the memory card - basically the reverse of what I do to get the photos on to my PC.

But for some reason, it won't let me do this. Any ideas on how I can get around it? I really don't have much of a need to purchase a card reader, so I'd like to avoid that if possible. Thanks.

Writing to a camera

I don't know of any digital camera that will let you write to the memory card when it is in the camera.

You need a card reader/writer.

Do you have an all-in-one printer?
by whizkid454 / January 5, 2007 8:25 AM PST

or a photo printer with memory slots? These might work for you. They have been tested on my HP Photosmart 2610xi. If not, the card readers are only $10-20... Why not spend a little and get what you might need?
