I have some videos from when I was in iraq on an SD card that I recorded with a Kodak digital camera. i do not have the cables or anything for the camera. Is there a way to get those videos onto a CD? Will those machines at Wal Mart do it?
You should be able to take your SD card to either Walmart, Walgreens, or CVS and transfer the contents to CD/DVD. I am not positive that they will do videos, so you may wish to call ahead.
If all else fails, maybe somebody will step up and do it for you on their computer. If nobody local wants to do it, pm me. You can send the card to me & I'll put it on cd for you (assuming nothing is too private on it) & mail it all back......it's the least we can do for someone that has served us.
I will try the local photo places (wal mart, walgreens...) I f I can't get it done I may take you up on your offer. there is nothing on there I would not want seen. I really appreciate it!
My wife lived in Wylie for a while when she was a kid.
Go to Walmart or an electronics store and buy a Card Reader they are pretty cheap. They range from around $10-60 depending on what brand and where you buy. I have an internal card reader in my computer that cost $24.
The systems in Walmart that your referring to are just for photos I believe.
I’m just guessing but in all probability your camera uses a USB connection. I believe the connector type for the camera end is called a “mini b” the end that goes to the computer is a type “A”. These cables go for about $5.
With the camera connected to the computer the camera should show up in “My Computer”. I don’t have a camera handy so I can’t check it, but it will be called “Mobil Device” or something. And the camera probably puts the pictures in a folder so when you open it the first thing you see probably won’t be pictures but rather a folder. Just drill down until you see a long list of jpg files or I guess in this case they would be mpg files. Just copy those onto your hard drive and you should be good to go.
The nice thing about multi card readers like that is they have slots for pretty much all of the common types of memory cards out there like SD, Mini SD, Duo, etc. One of those should cover just about everything so you probably won't need to buy another adapter again even if you have a bunch of different stuff that uses a bunch of different cards. These should all be really straightforward to use too. They might possibly come with a driver cd, but if they don't all you would need to do is just plug in the USB cable and the drivers should install automatically. Then, normally each of the card slots will show up in "My Computer" as if they were another drive. If you still need help after this, just let me know.
