Move photos to new SD card

Recommended Posts

I have an older camera S9450W and I have a couple of questions which my son said he would help me with.   I have an 8GB SD card that is falling apart and would like to transfer all my pics to a newer 16GB card that I have been presently using.  The end results would be that I would like to purchase a 32 GB SDXC memory card, add all the 8MG pics from the card that is falling apart and add all the pics that are on my 16MG card to create one SD card with all my pics on them.... Is this possible and how can I do it??  I am going to require help from someone as I am not very savvy in with electronics.  I really appreciate any help that someone can give me.  Thank you, Karen

Welcome to our forum. Your topic has been separated from the thread you used.

You should use a pc to copy your files. And keep in mind that you should always have a backup of your photos since SD cards can and most likely will fail after some time.

Make sure you format the new card in the camera before copying the previous images over to the new card.

While some folks have had no problems using their new cards right out of the box, so to speak, or using their computer to format the new cards, the fewest numbers of troubles, issues, woes and problems happen for those that format the cards in the camera.

Also, once the card is formatted, take it out of the camera, put it into the card reader connected to your computer and use the computer’s finder (file explorer) to take a look at how the folders / files are organized within the sdxc card. You will need to move the previous images into one of the inner level folders, so that the camera will be able to know they exist and will not accidentally wipe them out if they are in the wrong place.

If that does not make sense, or if you need any more help, ask lots more questions, and sooner or later as folks log on to the board, someone may be able to help.
