On holiday we took lots of photos on several Smartmedia cards. As each image on each card has the same record numbers, I find I can't get all the images together on one Cd. I copy the first card, when I try to add the second card , I am asked if I would like to "replace image **** with ****, if I say yes, I end up with the images of the second card and so on. If I say no the second card is not added at all. Help, it seems a waste of Cds using a separate Cd for each Smartmedia card. Cheers
I tried that< I even tranferred each card into My Pictures, each in a separate file ie...1,2,3,4,5, then tried to create a Cd and the same thing happened. I hate the thought that I will have to rename each image, I thought there might be another way around it. Cheers
Are you using Windows XP? If so use the digital camera Wizard to download the photos, you can give the images on each card a separate name using the wizard, the pics are then downloaded as 'name 001,name 002etc'
Because you have the same numbers on both cards it is logical to ask 'do you want to replace' you need to either give a name to each image on the second card which is tedious or create a new folder and put each batch of images and name the folder as 'Holidays family ' or 'Holiday scenes' just name each folder differently or it will ask you again !
Copy each card to different folders In first folder select all and rename first pic say "a! and click ok the files will now be called a, a (1) a (2) etc In seckond folder select all rename first pic say "b" and ckick ok the files will now be called b, b (1) b (2) etc Do this for all folders.
Make a new folder and name it open folder 1 and select all and right click on a pic and select "copy"
Open your new folder and right click and selesc "paste"
Repeat this for all your newly named pix
And that chould have them in one folder ready to burn and back up
for the advice, some I had already tried and some I did try, but I failed. However, I have renamed some of the files and managed to condense them down to three CDs, so I am happy with that. I had 569 images, so it was a bit of a task, being retired, I had the time ! Cheers everyone
