USING A MEMORY CARD
USING A MEMORY CARD
You can expand the storage
capabilities of your camera by using
a commercially available memory
card (SD memory card or
MultiMedia Card). You can also
copy files from built-in flash
memory to a memory card and from
a memory card to flash memory.
IMPORTANT!
• Make sure you turn off the camera before inserting or
removing a memory card.
• Be sure to orient the card correctly when inserting it.
Never try to force a memory card into the slot when
you feel resistance.
• See the instructions that come with the memory card
for information about how to use it.
• Certain types of cards can slow down processing
speeds.
• SD memory cards have a write protect switch, which
you can use to protect against accidental deletion of
image data. Note, however, if you write protect an
SD memory card, you must remove write protection
whenever you want to record to it, format it, or delete
any of its files.
• Normally, files are stored in built-in flash memory. When
you insert a memory card, however, the camera
automatically stores files to the card.
• Note that you cannot save files to built-in memory while a
memory card is installed in the camera.

USING A MEMORY CARD
IMPORTANT!
Formatting a Memory Card
• Never insert any other object besides a memory card
into the camera’s card slot. Doing so creates the risk
of damage to the camera and card.
• Should water or any foreign object ever get into the
card slot, immediately turn off the camera, remove
the battery, and contact your dealer or nearest
CASIO authorized service center.
• Never remove a card from the camera while the
operation lamp is flashing. Doing so can cause the
file save operation to fail, and even damage the
memory card.
Formatting a memory card deletes any data already stored
on it.
IMPORTANT!
• Be sure to use the camera to format a memory card.
Formatting a memory card on a computer and then
using it in the camera can slow down data
processing by the camera. In the case of an SD card,
formatting on a computer can result in nonconformity with the SD format, causing problems with
compatibility, operation, etc.
• Note that data deleted by a memory card format
operation cannot be recovered. Check to make sure
you do not need any of the data on the memory card
before you format it.
• Formatting a memory card that contains files deletes
all the files, even those that are protected (page 97).

Memory Card Precautions
2. Turn on the camera. Next, enter the REC
• Use only an SD memory card or a MultiMediaCard with
this camera. Proper operation is not guaranteed when
any other type of card is used.
• Electrostatic charge, electrical noise, and other
phenomena can cause data to become corrupted or even
lost. Always make sure that you always back up important
data on other media (MO disc, computer hard disk, etc.).
• If a memory card starts to behave abnormally, you can
restore normal operation by reformatting it. However, we
recommend that you always take along more than one
memory card whenever using the camera far away from
the home or office.
• We recommend that you format a memory card before
using it for the first time after purchasing it, or whenever
the card you are using seems to be the cause of
abnormal images.
• Before starting a format operation, check to make sure
that the battery is fully charged. Power interruption during
the format operation can result in improper formatting,
and even damage the memory card and make it
unusable.

Precautions
• Note that the folder named “DCIM” is the parent (top)
folder of all the files in memory. When transferring
memory contents to a hard disk, CD-R, MO disk, or other
external storage, treat all the contents inside a DCIM
folder as a set and always keep them together. You can
change the name of the DCIM folder on your computer.
Changing the name to a date is a good way to keep track
of multiple DCIM folders. However, if you even want to
copy the folders back to the camera’s file memory, be
sure you change the name of the DCIM folder back to
“DCIM” first. The camera does not recognize any folder
name other than DCIM.
• We also strongly recommend that after transferring data
from file memory to other external storage that you
reformat the camera’s file memory and delete its contents
before using it to store more files. Remember that
formatting memory deletes all of its contents. Check to
make sure that you no longer need any of the files in
memory before you format it.

Saving an Album
Installing the Software from the CD-ROM
• To save an album, copy the “DCIM” folder from camera
memory or the memory card to your computer’s hard disk,
a CD-R, an MO disk, or some other storage medium.
Note that copying only the “ALBUM” folder, does not copy
image data and other necessary files.
• After copying the “DCIM” folder, do not change or delete
any of the files inside of it. Adding new images or deleting
existing images may lead to abnormal album display.
• If you plan to use a memory card again after saving its
album, first delete all of its files or format it before loading
it into the camera.
• When you have “WEB” selected for the “Use” setting, the
album shows only the smaller image files stored in the
“ALBUM” folder. Such images can be uploaded to the
Internet more quickly.
About the bundled CD-ROM
The CD-ROM that comes bundled with the camera
contains the applications described below. Installation of
these applications is optional, and you should install only
the ones you want to use.
USB Driver for Mass Storage (for Windows/Macintosh)
This is the software that makes it possible for the camera
to “talk” to your personal computer over a USB connection.
If you are using Windows XP, Mac OS 9, or Mac OS X, do
not install the USB driver from the CD-ROM. With these
operating systems, you will be able to perform USB
communication simply by connecting the camera to your
computer with the USB cable.
Photo Loader (for Windows/Macintosh)
This application loads image data saved in JPEG and AVI
format from a digital camera to your computer.
Photohands (for Windows)
This application is for retouching and printing image files.
146
USING THE CAMERA WITH A COMPUTER
Internet Explorer (for Macintosh)
This is a browser application for reading HTML files.
Images loaded by Photo Loader are stored in folders called
“Libraries”. Internet Explorer displays the contents of a
library on your computer screen.
Computer System Requirements
Computer system requirements depend on each of the
applications, as described below.
Windows
DirectX (for Windows)
This software provides an extended tool set including a
codec that allows Windows 98 and 2000 to handle movie
files recorded using a digital camera. You do not need to
install DirectX if you are running Windows XP or Me.
See the “Readme” file on the bundled CD-ROM.
Macintosh
See the “readme” file on the bundled CD-ROM.
Acrobat Reader (for Windows/Macintosh)
This is an application that lets you read PDF files. Use it to
read the user documentation for the camera, Photo Loader,
and Photohands, all of which is included on the bundled
CD-ROM.
NOTE
• See the user documentation files (PDF) on the
bundled CD-ROM for details about using Photo
Loader and Photohands. See “Viewing User
Documentation (PDF files)” on page 150 (Windows)

Power Supply
• Use only the special NP-20 rechargeable lithium ion battery to power this
camera. Use of any other type of battery is not supported.
• This camera does not have a separate battery for the clock. The date and
time settings of the camera are cleared whenever power is totally cut off
(from both the battery and USB cradle). Be sure to reconfigure these
settings after power is interrupted (page 39).
LCD Panel
• The LCD panel is a product of the latest LCD manufacturing technology that
provides a pixel yield of 99.99%. This means that less than 0.01% of the
total pixels are defective (they do not turn on or always remain turned on).
