1. what type of camera?

2. when the camera take a photo and stores it on the card does it store it in a folder on the card? such as Dscf?

You didn't answer Fruit Bat /\0/\s question :-

2. when the camera take a photo and stores it on the card does it store it in a folder on the card? such as Dscf?

It's important.

The Reason that your Camera cannot read the images imported from your PC is because they are now of the wrong type for the camera.
It goes like this.
A camera image is ostensibly a JPEG but it isn't- it is properly called an EXIF.
An EXIF is a JPEG with xtra bells and whistles such as camera type, shutter speed, apature and all that photographic stuff.
Pre XP operating systems and older Photo Editors did not know about EXIF, and so dumped the extra info.
Put edited image on card, insert card into camera and camera says -whatsthisthen?
So you need another program that will turn the images back to EXIF.
There is program and it is to be found at

Good luck

Thanks Jack makes sense now, I have downloaded the images back onto my card and taken them to the shop for printing and got the okay.I will download the programme you suggested as a stand by for future occasions.
Thanks again
