There isn't a / button on the camera.

The Play menu options are Delete Current, Delete All, Lock, Thumbnail, Set Logo, Rotate (unavailable), Slideshow.

There is no Copy to Card option.

Were the photos in the internal memory before you inserted the memory card?
Ask Your Own Camera and Video Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Yes they were.
According to the information for your model ( I had the incorrect one before) the photos on the internal memory should "auto transfer" to the memory card when it is inserted. Are you still able to view the internal memory photos while the memory card is in the camera?
Ask Your Own Camera and Video Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
No, when I put the card in, I can't see the photos.
This model does not appear to have the function to accomplish what you need to do. Since I am unable to find a solution at this time, I can release your question so that others may try. Let me know.

If there's nothing else you can suggest, then I think it makes sense to open it up again. Mybe someone else will have an idea.
OK, no problem.

Hi,as you know now, internal transfer is not possible on this model.I will suggest that usb connector replacement will be needed in order to allow transfer and also restore normal operation.This is a common connector,and unless damage to pc board itself,connector should able to be replaced.This is a fairly invasive repair(delicate soldering),and I will suspect most service centers should be equipped to replace and repair at a cost effective price.Depending on connector damage ,yours may be able to be resoldered without replacement.USB connector replacement will not affect pictures that are stored in internal memory,and after repair,transfer and continued operation.

If you have any other questions please ask....Best to you,Joe
