There are a few reasons pictures may not transfer to your computer. If you are trying to transfer the photos by directly plugging in the SD card, two possible reasons are

  • The SD card is not inserted properly in the SD card slot on your computer
  • The SD card contacts are dirty

If you are connecting the camera by a USB cable, two possible reasons the pictures are not transferring are

  • The USB cable is not properly connected
  • The connections are blocked by debris

Some solutions for the SD card problem are

  • Ensure the SD card is inserted properly. Depending on your reader a portion may still be exposed
  • Clean the SD card contacts by gentle cleaning them with a small amount of rubbing alcohol
  • If you feel that the problem is with the camera not reading the SD card, please refer to the troubleshooting guide

Some solutions for the USB cable problem are

  • Ensure the USB cable is plugged in the appropriate port on the camera and on your computer
  • Unplug the USB cable from the computer, and replug it in back into the computer
  • Check to make sure that there is no debris in the ports on the camera or computer and clean them out if necessary
