Picture Transfer

Hi,
I have a card reader and a spare 1GB memory card.
I would like to transfer some pictures to the card in order to show them to friends who I will be visiting over Christmas.
I have chosen to use this method (with your help of course!) because my friends have a TV that you can load a memory card directly into.
Step by step ...how do I go about doing this please?
I ...of course ...do not want to remove any pictures from my PC so I presume that whatever transfers over to the card will simply be a copy?
When I have shown the pic's I intend to delete them and use the card in my camera.
Hope this all makes sense.

Ches
PS: As well as any replies that may be made here an e-mail would also be handy for me.

Re: Picture Transfer

Hi Ches, you should see your memory card as just another drive on your PC (eg. drive D/E etc). That means you can just highlight the shots on your PC & either drag them on to the new drive, or press CTRL C t ocopy them & then when in window for memory card, press CTRL V to paste them in

Hope that helps.

Re: Picture Transfer

Another way in XP is to open the folder where the photos are kept and select the ones you want to copy. Then on the left hand side of the screen you will see a list of things you can do. One will be 'copy these files to another location'. Select that option, and then in the dialogue box, navigate to the card (that will be shown as another lettered drive) and press copy. You should put the card in the reader before you start the process.

If you have more images you want to copy in other folders, you can then repeat the process.

Make sure the TV will accept your spare card. Panasonics use SD, Sony use memory sticks. If they have a DVD player that will display jpegs you can also burn a CD (or DVD). Yet another alternative is to take your camera too, and put the spare card in it and plug the camera into the TV.

That's given you some options to think about. Might be worth having an alternative up your sleeve in case of problems.

Re: Picture Transfer

Thank you to everyone for your helpful replies.
I had a closer look at the Picasa 2 prog that I have installed on my PC and used the excellent 'Export' facility.It worked perfectly and I now have all the pictures on the card ...all in their original format.
