I have no idea why someone would recommend this. I suspect it is just superstition. There generally isn't anything important or useful to you outside of the DCIM folder, and you certainly don't get any benefit in copying that folder vs. copying its contents — your computer does the exact same thing either way. Canon's MISC folder is explained at What is ...

In general the top tier Compact Flash cards available to the typical consumer via retail channels when compared to the top tier Secure Digital cards available to the typical consumer via retail channels are: More rigid and less susceptible to damage from flexing Rated for more extreme environmental conditions (higher altitude, lower temperature, etc.) Have ...

It is possible and has been done before but AFAIK not by Leica. Pentax and Canon both did it early on as SDXC was introduced. This added support for large card sizes and also the exFAT file system.

For copying to my laptop I removed the card from camera and inserted to my laptop SD card slot. Its prompting to Format the card. Looks like my Windows 7 is not recognizing the file format in the card. Is your laptop an older laptop (5 or more years old)? If so, then WayneF's comment to your question is probably correct — your laptop's SD card reader is ...

The misc folder is for storing in camera data for everything other than the image data itself. IE, thumb nail metadata, temporary data and if you are printing directly from the camera, it stores the DPOF data( digital print order format). I personally don't need to copy this info, so I import just the images in Lightroom.

You can't change the folder structure so that the Canon EOS 450D, or any other Canon EOS camera for that matter, doesn't use subfolders named 100CANON, 101CANON, 102CANON, etc. inside the DCIM folder to store image files. This is fully compliant with the industry standard outlined by the Design rule for Camera File system. This standard was adopted as the de ...

All flash memory systems have their physical enclosure and 2 electronic systems - a controller and flash memory to determine reliability. Electronics Electronically there is no discernible difference because the storage side of flash memory (NAND) is the same across all the types (CF, SD, etc.) NAND at the chip level has a serial interface and relies on ...

There's no way to assign a date-based filename on-camera. However, there are quite a few pieces of software that will help do just this when ingesting photos from the memory card to your computer, giving you the ability to define your preferred file name, folder structure, and assorted metadata, too, such as Adobe Lightroom and Camera Bits Photo Mechanic.

Assuming you're talking about an SD card, there's a possibility with some cards with very easily shifted write-protect tabs to get shifted into read-only position upon insertion into certain readers, and shifted back upon removal, by any slight friction. I've had this happen a couple of times, and it seems like kind of a perverse design to me (I've actually ...

You can use an USB hub on your tablet, I have a similar setup with my (rooted) Nexus 7 to read different USB key and it works. However, you may have power issues if you are using a hard drive. The power output of your tablet is probably about 500mA. Check the consumption of your HDD. If it's higher or close to 500mA, you will have to use some external power ...

It's most probable that the card has simply failed. Another likely possibility is that the contacts inside the camera need to be cleaned. The first diagnostic step is to try another card, and if possible, to also try the card you have in another camera. If the card doesn't work in another camera, and if another card works just fine in your main one, don't ...

I know that when you repeatedly remove/insert an SD card it can leave "lines" on the gold contacts of the SD card itself but I haven't had any issue with it for over a year (if I'm understanding what you're saying.) Not all SD cards do this and if you're curious check this post out. As for the camera messing up the card itself, do you have any other SD Card ...

Is there anyway to copy the files from this card to my Win7 laptop? Just connect your camera to the laptop with the USB cable the camera came with and copy the files this way

I cannot answer whether it's possible to change the path on Canon cameras (and I doubt it's possible), but I have some other ideas: To test whether the Apple support's claim is correct, simply do this: Use a PC to move the images from the 100CANON subfolder into the DCIM folder and then see if you can read the images using the iPad. If it still doesn't ...

Dude, I hit the same issue a long time back; totally messed up my 600D. I even bought new SD cards and tried, but nothing worked. I finally understood that it had a problem with the SD card slot that holds the SD card. Go to a service center and change the card slot, it costs approximately 2000 INR (30$).

I have read a bit on the use of the CCK and the only difference I can find on the SD cards from the other cameras is the storage directy path. That shouldn't matter. AFAIK, all Canon EOS cameras (as well as other Canon product lines like PowerShot) use subfolders with names like 100canon. If that caused a problem with the Camera Connection Kit, there'd ...

All I know is that Nikons seem to be very sensitive when it comes to memory cards.My D810 won't accept anything other than an at least a "6" rated full size SD card. It won't accept micro sd's in a converter no matter what!

Is there a sensor in there that I may have damaged and this is giving the false reading? There is a contact switch in the SD card socket that detects the presence of a seated card. This switch is part of the SD card socket assembly. It is possible that some of the debris plastic has become lodged behind the switch, preventing the switch from moving when ...

Should be firmware because in terms of hardware they are physically the same. That of course doesn't mean that a company will ever actually release the needed update. As an aside, I teach photography and am a professional artist and would suggest that for almost all uses, SDXC cards aren't a good idea (time-lapse being the possible exception). The problem ...

There is, apparently, a python Eyefi server that you can run on your NAS, which allows you to use an older eyefi card in the way you describe. (The current Mobi cards can only do ad hoc networking). See: http://thijs.elenbaas.net/2013/03/installing-an-eye-fi-server-on-a-synology-nas/

Yup! I can answer this one... put the card into your computer and manually erase all the data on it. When a canon 60d or 70d can't read data on the card (like it was used in another camera), it will say the card is locked because it doesn't want you to overwrite the data.

The lock switch on an SD card is a simple physical mechanism. The card reader feels for a gap where the lock switch should be, and if it feels a gap it write-protects, but if the tab is there it enables write. (If the lock switch breaks off, you can put masking tape where it used to be, in order to be able to write to the card. It's basically the same ...

If you're ok with Dropbox, Using the automatic import function will rename all of your files to the datetime taken. My process is: 1) Plug SD card into computer (in my case it's an iMac) 2) Let dropbox do the automatic import 3) Have hazel automatically file into my Pictures folder with the structure Year/Month/Day Taken 4) In Lightroom, I use the ...

As per camera (EOS REBEL T2i/EOS 550D/Kiss X4 Digital) manual the size of recorded video is 330 MB/min which mean 32GB card will be OK for you. But be aware videorecording will stop automatically after 29 minutes 59 seconds. Of course you can start it after this to shoot another ~30 minutes The mentioned speed of 30MB/s is read speed and write speed is ...
