    I am doubtful that you can copy it back to the card so that you can show it in the camera. There is an index file on the card that is used by the camera but of no use on the PC, so just a copy back won't create said index file properly.

    However, if the file is in a standard format that any PC media-player can read, you can copy it back to the card, put that card in someone else's computer and play it there.

    Just use drag and drop to copy it from the PC to the card via a card-reader (built into most PCs these days or cheaply available at any computer shop).
