My dad asked if I could solve a problem for a friend: "At church a lady asked me how to transfer pictures from the computer back to the camera."
It is possible. It might be that the software that comes with your camera allows this.
If not, then follow these steps:
1. Take out the camera's memory card.
2. Insert it into a card reader, which is attached to your computer. Some computers now include card readers; if not, you may need to buy one.
3. The computer will recognize the card reader and the memory card as another disk drive. Use Windows Explorer to open the new "drive."
4. Drag photos (JPEG files) from your computer onto the new "drive." In some cases, you may need to place the JPEG files in a specific folder of the memory card.
5. When done, click the "Unplug or Eject Hardware" button on the task bar (bottom right of the screen). Choose the drive name, and wait for Windows to tell you that it's now safe to remove the card.
6. Put the card back into your camera, and check if you can view the photos.
My dad replied, "Thanks for mailing the answer to her question. She had some transfers done by [the local camera dealer] and they charged her one dollar per picture! Come to think of it: I never asked her why she wants to transfer pictures back to the camera, would you know of a good reason?"
To use the camera as a photo viewer. They have such big screens today, that we can use the camera to show pictures to friends and relatives.
