Is there an easy way to do this? Someone gave me a digital picture frame but it has no internal memory of its own, so you have to keep the memory card in it. I don't want to have to take out the memory card out of a picture frame every time I want to use my camera. Any way around this?

Just use a card reader attached to your PC to move the files from one card to another. If the card reader does not have two slots, first copy the files to a temporary spot on your PC, then copy to another card.

Thanks Scott! Anyone have any recommendations for a decent, easy-to-use reader/writer?

Just about any USB card reader you can find will do the trick. You don't need anything pricy. If you already store your digital pics on a hard drive, then it makes things easy to update the card as needed.

They are all easy to use. Just plug one into the usb port on your computer and it treats it as another drive. You should be able to find one for around $20.00.

Or you could buy an internal card reader/writer if you don't want another accessory cluttering things up.

My desktop has an internal multi-card reader/writer but I bought this (link below) SanDisk Compact Flash reader/writer for my laptop which only came with an SD reader:

Card readers are easier for my money than hooking up the camera to the computer anyway. Are you saying you only have one card?
