Tip & How-To about Cameras
Here is a tip which has indeed saved me time and effort.
Use a card reader for your copying of files to your hard drive on your computer. These little wonders are really a great help.
One thing which I found early in my repairing of digital camera is that there was no way that I could put many camera drivers and software on my computer's hard drive.
If you do not have a memory card reader/writer, simply go to most any electronics store and buy one. The prices vary and some may be cheaper on a site like Ebay, just remember that you will usually pay more for a better grade. I suggest that you do not buy the very cheapest one, they are not made to last very long, in my experience.
The installation is very simple. Simply plug in the card reader in any USB port on the computer, not in a port expander. No software or drivers are needed in most all of the new operating systems including IBM/MS Windows, and the various Linux OS's.
Some of the software such as "Nikon View" (Windows) will work with any kind of digital camera picture files, especially .jpg. I have used this free software on my computer for every kind of digital camera I have repaired or have used.
The only ones which may not be supported would be those which are the very early digital cameras with picture files which are not supported.
