OK...step 1...check all cables. Hooking the cable up and turning the camera on should put it in transfer mode...does camera do this?

If yes, step 2...go to system information and uninstall drivers.

step 3....use uninstall programs to remove sony software (BACK UP PICS FIRST)

step 4....reboot

step 5...reinstall software

sounds like your drivers are toast or your usb port is shot...try moving the cable to another usb port

Want to download pictures from pdc700 polaroid camera


Try to download the required software from Polaroid. Every computer needs software (and a driver) so it can transfer the pictures from a camera to the computer. The software always comes with the camera. but if you don't know where the CD is, try the firm of your brand.
If that won't work (some brands no longer exists and some on't support that long) you always could try some free software like from Ulead, Pixir, BeFunkey, Gimp, Photoshop express. Or if your camera does have a memory card, buy a external card reader and use that to transfer the pictures and videos to your computer.

Read error appears after downloading pictures and looking back in the camera, some pictures have read error


When you hook your camera to your computer you are accessing it like a disk and changes made to "files" are saved to the disk. A common change is to rotate the image so it views correctly on the computer screen for images you turned the camera to take a portrait oriantation shot. That change is saved to the image on disk, then the camera can no longer display it because it is not the right "dimensions" for the camera (it is rotated)

Memory card requires formatting and its a new card? never had a problem with changing memory card


All memory cards need formatting (initializing) before use. The camera writes a little program to it makes for a better working card. If you just stick it in and start taking pictures you will receive sloppy performance a slower download read errors and just **** performance. That's not to say it won't work. Another thing is after you have down loaded the pictures to a computer the card goes back into the camera and is formatted in the camera. Always format delete should only be used when you need space and is not the way you empty your card of pictures doing that just makes a mess out of the card and eventually it won't hold many pictures or just refuses at all.

My camera stopped downloading pictures onto my computer it has always worked before so I don't know if it's the camera or the computer or what to do so I can download my pictures once again . Your help...


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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 or FireWire). 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Sony DSC H-7 resetting picture counter when downloading


That's what the camera is supposed to do. If it always started back at 1, you wouldn't be able to download new pictures because your computer would keep telling you that those pictures already exist.

While copying pictures into my computer i formatted the card  affter copying the pictures & since then my nikon camera is saying memory card cannot be used


Always format memory cards from the camera, never the computer. The camera has an operating system that may not be able to read your computer's system. Try reformatting the card in your camera, See if that works.

Got svp hddv-2880 digital camera and video no software


I worked with the camera until I tried every possible combination of settings. Once I set the camera back to video instead of camera function and plugged it into the computer then it gave me a reading of Mass Storage and downloaded the 64 pictures I had taken and offered me the chance to save to a folder!

Lost pictures in transit from camera to computer


Sometimes there are other folders and the pictures can be hidden.
Also make sure to check internal memory with the card removed. Remove the memory card, turn on the camera and check if any of the pictures are on the internal memory.

Also, use a card reader for the computer instead of using the camera connected to the computer.
With a card reader you may be able to see the folders (if any) and retrieve your pictures.
Never delete any pictures or edit them from the computer to the camera. This can cause corruption and loss of pictures and files.

Always download (copy) them from the camera on to the computer.

System Error


My experience in this issue is that you should never put too much trust in an SD card :-/ It seems to me that all cards are prone to fail once in a while, and my best advice is to keep spare ones handy. A dedicated SD card reader is a good thing, too...
