View Full Version : digital pictures from memory card to CD at WDW?

Hi high tech buddies. There is a thread brewing at the WDW forum about how to get digital memory chips from cameras downloaded onto a CD so that you could take more pictures. One person commented that when this was done at the main street emporium they shrunk the files from 700 to 50K (ouch). Any ideas (short of packing you laptop or buying lots of memory chips)? Especially for those of us who like to use the movie function sometimes- this is a real issue.

I don't really think there is another way short of sending off the cards to a photo place.
Maybe bring a card reader and try to see if you can find a business center with a CD-RW drive?

If you can find a Kodak Picture Maker kiosk, you should be able to transfer to a CD on your own. I don't kno if the file sizes are compressed or not. The Kodak website has a kiosk finder. There are some in WalMarts and Albertsons.
Some of the hard drive-based media players like the iPod (http://www.apple.com/ipod/) and those from Archos (http://www.archos.com) have optional card reader accessories that allow you to transfer files to the player's hard drive.
Belkin has one (http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore?productLearnMore=T7418LL/A) for the iPod that supports CompactFlash (Type 1 and 2), SmartMedia, Secure Digital (SD), Memory Stick, or MultiMediaCard (MMC)
Archos readers generally only support one card type at a time, such as this one (http://www.archos.com/products/prw_500422.html) that supports SmartMedia cards. Additionally, the Archos players have a small color display on them, so you can actually view the images on them as well.
