I took pictures on my Olympus camera onto an SD card, copied them onto my laptop and later put them back onto the SD card. Now I'm not able to view the pictures on the camera from the card. What happened??

Sounds like the card may have corrupted. If your pictures are still safe and sound on the laptop, then you can safely format that card. That should wipe it clean and it will probably work again.

Are you saying you transfered the pics to your laptop, then deleted them from the sd card and then copied them back onto the card?

depending on the age of the camera, have you contacted Olympus tech support to see what they say about this?

They need to be in a folder on the SD card named DCIM for them to be seen in your camera. They may even need to be in a subfolder. Try this, put the card back in your computer. Create a folder called DCIM and put the pictures in there. Then try it in your camera. If that doesnt work then copy the pictures back to your computer, then put the card in your camera and have your camera format the card. That will put the correct folder structure on the card. Then put the pictures in the DCIM folder.
