Sorry Panfisher, maybe try this video, sorry about the quality but pay attention to the "Cut" method this guy uses when he transfers from his card to a file on his computer. You will copy the picture to the file and it deletes that picture from the card. Vista and Windows 7 should be the same procedure. I do my pictures entirely different using another method but I have no way of showing it. Hope this gives you some help. https://youtu.be/l8wQbHonlmw?t=4
To those losing pictures or the card format, never remove a card from a camera or your computer until you click the "eject media" icon or turn the power to the device off. This includes your camera; any files that are open at the time you pull the card can be lost and may require you to "re-format" the card.
Dave if you are using Windows, bring up the SD Card file on your computer, left click the file to bring up the folder(s)
then "right click" the folder
to bring up a window where you can "click" delete. Do not delete the SD Card File, you will need to format the card if you do.
To format, with the card plugged into the PC, open the file of your PC and search for the SD Card to be listed in the left hand column where the files will be displayed. Should be something like (F:) and may even have a down arrow beside it. Clicking the down arrow should list the folders on the card where once again you can right click that folder to delete or left click to list. Left clicking may require a "double click" depending on your PC.
Now to "format" that card, "right click" on the 'SD Card file' and a pop-up should allow you to choose, eject, delete, format, etc. Left click the format button and set the format you need for your camera. You should be asked if you want a fast or complete format and sometimes a complete format will be needed but the fast generally works. Just remember to select the correct format for your camera.
Warning, make sure you are on the SD Card file plugged into your computer and not on the COMPUTER FILE when you format. My PC says Local disk(C:) as holding the computer files with cards (E:) (D:) and others listed below.
Remember, to use the "eject media" button to assure all files are closed before pulling the card or turn the device off.
I hope I have not confused anyone but suddenly,
I have a headache.
