Computer Cafes ok to upload digital photos?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I will be in China for two months this summer, and I'm taking my digital camera and plan to take lots of photos. Since I don't have a laptop computer or one of those portable harddrive devices, I need a way to transfer the photos from the camera memory cards to another storage medium. I was wondering if it would be possible to upload photos to a computer at an internet cafe, and then burn them on an external cd-writer (these drives are fairly small and lightweight, so easy to take along). The thing is I've never been to an internet cafe, and don't know how good the computers are. It would need to have a usb port and like 500-600 mb of hard disk space. Does this sound good?

Photo developing places are your best bet - almost all are geared up for printing / tranfer / burning of images from and to CD. As long as you have a camera or card reader that can plug into a USB port you should be fine.

Internet cafes might have the equipment to do it, but a photo place will be more experienced and easier.

You might want to bring / pick up some decent quality CD's here - I've seen some pretty poor quality blank CDs being used to burn stuff for customers in smaller places.
