Specs: Windows XP

I put my photos from sd card onto PC but would like to put some back to keep on sd card. I followed your advice to format ,copy etc but all my cameras/camcorders say there are no pictures on the sd card. They are visible and playable however when sd card is plugged into PC.
Can anyone help please?
I run Windows XP on Dell Desktop PC. Camera is Panasonic Lumix TZ4

You said you formatted the card. Did you accidentally format the card with the NTFS file system instead of FAT 32?

To find out, go into Windows Explorer, right click on the device and select properties. It will show you what file system your using.

Thanks for that thought, THX.

I've done some experimenting though & it seems it will work if I can copy the picture back BEFORE any changes (eg renaming the picture). Provided it still has the original camera generated number, the camera recognises it.

I posted this in case it will help someone else
