What make and model camera? If it uses a memory card of some type, consider getting a card reader instead.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

First you should have a program installed in your computer to transfer your pictures, best is canon's.
Once the USB cable is connected you should turn your camera on, automatictly the program detects your camera and asks you to press the transfering button. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Computer does not reognize Camera

Another way of downloading images is to remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB card reader, then plug the card reader into the USB port on the computer. The computer will see this as an external memory device, you can then open the folder/s and copy the images to the computer.

SOURCE: Cannot download pic.s from camers to pc.

I would remove the memory card and use that to transfer the media to your pc.... I can't tell you why it is not showing up on any of the pc's. The only thing I can think of is possibly the usb cord is bad or that vivicam has special software you need to download. But you can definately get the media onto to your pc by bypassing the usb cord and remove the media from the card and place it in a folder on your pc .. hope this helps... good luck

SOURCE: I have a Kodak M893-IS digital camera. Suddenly

You can try getting an SD card reader with a USB connection. The computer will treat this as another input. You should see a file folder with JPG files in it. This will be your pictures. Just do a "copy" to another file on your computer. Several companys make these card readers. 2 are Vargus and Lexar. I purchased one for my wife's camera the other day at Walmart. It was a "Targus High Speed SD/SDHC Card Reader/Writer". It was around $8.

Are your pics on the internal memory or the memory card? With no card in the camera, can you bring up the internal memory? If not, then any pics on it are gone. Your best bet at this point would be to format the internal memory to completely erase anything on it and vow never to use it. Is there anything on the memory card? You may have to use a card reader to find out.
Had you done your homework on this camera before buying it, you would have found out that nobody likes it. It's cheap and totally unreliable. Takes horrible pics and doesn't even have an optical zoom....only a terrible digital zoom. Saving the once in a lifetime pics from a vacation requires a much better camera.

Lost USB Cable for my Poloroid i830


USB cords can be purchased at places like Best Buy. You will need to take your camera with you to make sure the end that fits in your camera is the correct size. You could eliminate all problems by purchasing a card reader instead. Works with all cards and all operating systems. 99b79b0.jpg

I have lost the usb cable for my camera so i cant put pics on my pc without it, can i buy another one? if so where can i purchase it?


Take your camera to any camera or electronics store and show them what the USB slot looks like. You'll be able to buy a new cable very cheaply. Alternatively ask your friends if anyone has a spare cable, if they have an old camera they may well have an old cable that they don't use any more.
You can also copy the photos if you can borrow a card reader, although this is more difficult as you have to take the card out of the camera.

The average retail price of the camera is $66. It comes with the following: Digital Camera

You can buy a USB cord at Walmert although you would be better off using a card reader to download pics. Then, you woudn't need the CD. The quickstart guide can be downloaded at the Vivitar site.

I lost the cable that hooks the camera to the computer.


Just get a multi card reader. It will plug into the a USB slot and show up in MY COMPUTER (PC). It will also allow you to read other types of media cards from other cameras. They are cheap at staples or best buy etc.. Easier to get than the cable. Also faster reading of the card. I have never used the cable to any digital camera.

You don't need camera's software to download pics. Just plug it into your PC and it will recognize it and pop up a windows base window ask you what you want to do with camera pics.

If it doesn't, goto MyComputer on your desktop and click on this. Your camera will be showing up here, along with your other computer hardware drive/devices, with a drive letter assigned to your cameras memory(flashdrive) and named USB Drive or Storage or Camera.

Click on this to find a folder named DCIM, Digital Computer IMages. Click on this and find another folder named 100_PANA or similar. Click on this and these are you pics. Drag and Drop or Copy and Paste individual pics, or whole PANA folder to where ever you want them on your computer.

A better long term solution to your problem for this and every other future camera you may buy is to buy a mini cardreader that is not much bigger than a USB Thumbdrive and costs about $15. I suggest SanDisk's MobileMate SD+, available at RadioShack, Staples, or most anywhere Mem cards are sold.

Advantages: No bulky and unique USB cable to lug around. Doesn't use cameras battery power while viewing/downloading pics cause it is USB port powered. And it is small enough to fit in most camera cases along with the camera..

How important you would rate the USB feature?


There you go then Nick. Not only a satisfactory answer but when you get it you'll find it a very satisfactory solution. Why worry about USB in camera - that's second-rate as a download compared with a USB reader - card direct to computer (to USB port) via the reader is about 10 times the speed of a camera USB to serial. By the way, you'll just LOVE the 2020 - especially when you shoot in low light with that f2 lens to help you. Set it up right. HQ at 1600x1200 will do you fine to start with and give you plenty of pics on a modest card (about 64 on a 32Meg). 'P' mode with AutoWB, Auto ISO, Auto-everything and just shoot away and have fun - great shots
