Transferring Files Between Cameras May Fail
SUMMARY: Most digital cameras cannot share media cards without reformatting.
Considering swapping photos with your friend who has a digital camera with compatible media? If you and a friend are out on a photo shoot or vacation and want to look at each other's images, you may think you can just swap media cards and view the photos on your camera. However, this may fail. Digital cameras format their media cards differently using incompatible folder and filenames, and some create preview folders with miniature JPG files, which is actually what you see on your LCD when previewing photos. If the two of you use different digital cameras, more than likely the incompatibilities of the formatted media will prevent you from just swapping memory cards to view photos.
