Re: Fun! Digital 320: "Camera not connected." -- Serial...

The "Camera not connected" error message indicates a communications problem in the serial port connection between the camera and the computer. Simply put, the computer cannot find the camera it is being asked to connect with. Whenever an external device (digital camera, scanner, Palm Pilot, etc.) is connected to a computer through its serial port, a communications error is possible. There is usually no single "most likely" reason for the conflict -- it could be a hardware issue as easily as it could be a software issue. Fortunately, the most common causes of this error message are also the most easily rectified: 1.Make sure that the camera power is on. 2.Make sure that the camera cable has not been damaged. 3.Make sure that the camera cable is properly connected to both the camera and the computer. 4.Clean out the computer's Temp file.

ERROR MESSAGE: "Checksum error."


The Checksum error usually indicates a data transmission issue. This may be due to a loose connection, bad wiring, electrical interference (cross-talk), a physical problem with the device itself, or a conflict caused by another software program. * Make sure that the cable attaching the camera to the computer is secure at both ends. * Close down all of the computer's other applications before attempting to download. 1. Press the CTRL, ALT and DELETE keys simultaneously. This will bring up the Close Program Window. 2. Highlight the program that you want to close and select END TASK. The Close Program window closes only one program at a time, so you will have to repeat these steps for each program that you want to close. NOTE: The SYSTRAY and EXPLORER programs should be allowed to run. Do not select End Task for these programs. You will also want to leave any necessary programs running, such as those controlling a wireless mouse or keyboard.
