Fixed - Can't Upload Pictures from My Camera on Windows 10

The number of photographers, both amateur and professional have increased over the past few years. With cameras becoming affordable and tons of videos available online to learn the techniques, it is no surprise that photos are everywhere!

Most users like to store their photos on their computers. One simple reason is to free up space on their camera memory card and better manage photos in separate folders. With Microsoft rolling out Windows 10 Operating system, users embraced it after mixed reviews on its predecessor Windows 8. However, a lot of users complained that they could not upload their pictures to Windows 10.

Let us check out some solutions to fix this problem:

  1. Use card reader

There are times when you insert just your memory card to the system, it may not be detected or file transfer may not be possible. Try connecting your memory card to your system via a card reader.

  1. Use DISM commands

If this issue occurred due to any third party application conflict or corruption of system files, you can run DISM (Deployment Image Servicing and Management) commands.

  • Press Windows button + X.
  • Select Command Prompt (Admin) to open a command prompt as an Administrator.
  • Now type the following commands in command prompt window and press Enter key after each command.



  1. Create an archive

Although just a temporary solution, you can transfer photos from your camera to your system.

  • Connect your camera to the system.
  • Locate pictures folder on your camera.
  • Now right click this folder and choose to Add to archive
  • Once the archive is created, you can move it to your system and extract the pictures.
  1. Check your USB port and cables

File transfer problem may occur if you are using a faulty USB cable. Replace the cable and connect the memory card to system and see if it works. Also, check your USB port and it is working fine. Look for any dust particles within these USB ports.

  1. Try a different computer

Hardware compatibility issues can deter transfer of photos to your computer. Try inserting your memory card or your card reader to a different system and see if you can see the pictures on File Explorer.

  1. Perform clean boot

A clean boot lets you start Windows with the minimal set of drivers and startup programs. It eliminates software conflicts that happen when you install a program.

  • Press Windows button + R to open the Run box.

  • On your Startup tab, right click on each of the enabled startup items and select Disable.
  • Click Ok.
  • Click Restart.
  1. Format your memory card

If the card is corrupted or infected with a virus, you can format it. Note that formatting the card will delete all its contents. Before you hit that format button, it is advisable to take a backup of all the data.
