Thank you for posting so much detail, many people don't. I agree with you that the printer should not be writing to the card, so removing it 'live' should not be a problem, whatever anyone says (and even if the printer were to give you an error).

I'd like to go with a theory that the card socket on the printer might be dirty/dusty, perhaps through disuse. That might spread to the card contacts enough to cause the problems. Let's go forward with your options in the logical order, with that theory in the background.

First off, clean the contacts of the memory card. Your choice, you can either rub the contacts with an ordinary eraser or a kleenex with some methyl hydrate (UK: a rubber or a tissue with some methylated spirit). In each case, it's very important that you brush away any residue that might be left behind, or you might make it worse!

Did that help? If not, try the card in a computer card reader. Can you read the card? If so, great, but start thinking that the camera socket might be dirty/faulty.

Did that help? If not, and you really want those photos, try a recovery program. The best program to use is called PhotoRec and you can\015\012find it here. It's free, released under the GNU licence.

Did you get them? If not, you're probably out of options; but you could try reformatting the card and saying goodbye to the photos. Reformat in the camera if possible, there's less room for errors.

I have lost my manual on my C743 EasyShare Zoom digital camera, and I don't know how to get my photos which are in the internal memory transferred to the Kodak memory card so that I can insert the card into the appropriate card slot on mt HP Officejet Pro 8500 All-in-One Printer and bring the photos over onto my computer. When I remove the card now and insert it into the printer, my computer says there are no files on the card. But, I can press "Review" on the camera, and I can see the ohotos.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS1. Once I transfer the media cards pictures onto the computer and then re-insert the card into the camera, all pictures seem to have been deleted. However, when I take the media card to Wal-Mart to be developed, all pictures are displayed on their photo printer. My question is, "Why are my pictures not able to be viewed inside the camera once pictures have been transferred to the computer, but is able to be viewed on a photo printer at Wal-Mart?" Kathy

I don't have a manual for this camera, and would like to print one off the internet. I took pictures and would like to print them with my HP Portable Photo Printer, but when I connect the camera to the printer, the printer can't read the stored memory of the camera to display the pictures so I can print them. This printer has no computer hooked to it, so I can't use special software with it. All my other cameras or photo memory cards can be read by this printer! I need the manual to read about t

We use our camera for passports, so having the pictures stay in the camera, then hook to camera up to the passport photo printer, is the easiest way to go. Recently, I ended up taking lots of pictures, so I moved the passport photos off of the card and onto the computer. When I was done, I put the passport photos back onto the card (after removing the new photos), but now the camera says there are no pictures, even though I can view them through the computer using the USB cable attatched to the
