Re: failure to acquire pictures

1. Always use an AC adapter when downloading directly to a computer. 2. Check with the camera manufacturer (try its Web site) to make sure you have the latest version of the necessary software drivers. 3. If your camera connects via a serial (COM) port, check for serial-port conflicts. 4. If you're using a FireWire cable to connect to the computer, turn the computer on, turn the camera on and then connect the cable between the two. Don't turn off the camera while the cable is still attached.

Can pictures be transferred to a memory card from a pc?

Most definately. A Memory card is treated just like an external hard drive.
Just insert the Card into your PC if you have an adapter. Then drag and drop.
Its that easy. The problem is will your camera recognize the picture? I have done
this many times on different cameras and find that in most cases the newer cameras
have no trouble reading the pictures...

I had my Kodak camera for awhile and haven't had any trouble with it but now i can't transfer any of my pictures to my computer without it saying can't import pictures there is an error

Try transferring pictures bypassing the camera: transfer them directly form the memory card. If the computer does not have a card reader, you can buy a USB card reader in any store selling cameras.

When I acquire pictures from SD card, it acquires

You shouldn't be leaving the old pictures on the card. That's a guaranteed way to get into trouble. After downloading your pictures, format the card in the camera.

If you want to transfer just the new pictures, you'll have to select those pictures for transfer. Since you declined to specify what software you're using, I can't tell you precisely how to do that.

The only way is to use a separate card reader. When it opens on your computer, select the new pics and drag and drop them where you want them.

Transfering to PC

Try going to MY COMPUTER, and see if the camera is listed there. If it is, then double-click it, and open the sub-folder containing pictures. Then drag and drop them to another folder.
The camera should appear on the desktop as: ***media. Double-click it, now the sub-folders containing pictures should open.

Trouble transferring pictures from camera to computer

First, Try and install the HP software again. Uninstall the software first and reboot the pc. Then reinstall software. The memory chip maybe have currupt pictures, so format the chip using the camera. You manual should tell you how to do this. Second, Turn the camera on and let the battery run all the way down. This may take some time, maybe a day. Then charge it back up for a day. I hope this helps you out. Let me know.

Failure to download pictures to PC

Sometimes writing it down helps ;] Uninstall, and reinstall with camera disconnected. Some devices need to be out when installing their software, some need to be plugged in, on some it doesn't matter. If you're still having problems check if the USB works with other devices, maybe you need to reintall the USB drivers, or maybe its just broken. Post back if stuck, we'll figure something out ;]

Open the PhotoMAX application on your PC. 3. Click Get Photo. Note: If you are using PhotoMAX Pro to transfer pictures, you need to select PDC 640 Camera from the Select Source dialog box (select File > Acquire > Select Source), and then select File > Acquire. 4. Click Album or flashPath. 5. Select the album in which you want to save your images, or click New Album to create a new album. 6. Click Camera or Scanner. 7. Select PDC 640 from the Sources list on the Select Source window, and then click Select. The PDC 640 Twain Driver window opens. 8. Click Get All to transfer all the images in the camera memory to your computer, or select the images you want to transfer to your computer and click Get Selected. The images are transferred to the selected album, which is located in the PhotoMAX Albums folder. The PDC 640 Twain Driver window closes. 9.
