How to transfer photos from computer to a SD Card – Video Tip

One of my client’s today did not know how to transfer photos from her computer to a SD Card so she could utilize her digital picture frame she received at Christmas. She was amazed and relieved at how simple the steps were once I walked her through the process.

This method works for transferring any type of file from your computer to an external drive like a USB flash drive, external hard drive, or a memory card like shown here.

  1. Insert your memory card into the computer (or card reader…note too that newer digital cameras can act as a card reader as well)
  2. Click Start –> My Computer
  3. Double-click your memory card
  4. Click Start –>  My Pictures (Pictures in Vista and Windows 7)
  5. Position the two windows side-by-side (see video below or click here for complete tutorial on using the title bar)
  6. Drag photos from your Pictures folders to external drive (Learn how to select multiple files here or here.)
