With XP you should be able to simply open up the "My Computer" icon on your desktop.
Under "My Computer" you should see a "Removable Disk".
Double Click on it, and then your should see "DCIM", double click on that and then you will see "100PENTX".
Double click on "100PENTX" and you will see all your pictures.
You can then copy those pictures to anywhere on your computer.

If this does not work for you, you can always use a card reader to download your pictures. Many later model computers have built-in SD card readers. If your computer does not have a slot for an SD card you can purchase a card reader, usually for under $20, at most major computer/electronics equipment retailers.

How do I download pictures from my camera into an existing folder on my computer


If you connect the camera to your PC via a USB lead (usually supplied with the camera) then Windows (XP, Vista, 7) should recognise it as an external flash drive and will assign the memory card a drive letter. You can then access the photos on that drive directly and copy them to any other drive.
Alternatively, you can remove the memory card from the camera and place it in a memory card reader (if you don't have a card reader they are available from camera and computer stores, or on-line).

Panasonic DMC - F3. Attempting to load photos from camera to PC. Software provided has been installed. Camera has been connected to the PC via provided USB cable. PC does not seem to recognise...


Consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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.

I used to be able to plug in my camera to the computor and get all my pictures downloaded and now all of a sudden, I CAN"T and I need to find out WHY>??????? Thanks


normally in windows xp allmost all the makes, models, and brands of digital cameras are recognised as mass storage device, and shows it as extended drive, when you connect it to the computer via USB. If earlier it was recognising and have stopped all of a sudden ,there may be
1) defective USB cable.
2) Defective USB port in the camera
3) problem with the operating system of the computer. Try connecting it on some other computer.

Computer won't recognise camera to download images


** Problem Solved **

I found it wasn't the camera entirely to blame. I tried another USB cable on another pc, and although the camera was doing the same thing as my problem, the computer recognised the camera as new hardware, and asked me how to access the pictures. So I was able to get the pictures from the camera to the computer, and then saved them on to my Kingston flash drive. So taking the flash drive to my daily PC, I plugged in my flash drive via a USB extension lead, and discovered that would read either... alarm bells rang. So I unplugged the lead, and put the flash drive straight into the computer direct. The computer recognised it immediately. So plugging in the extension lead again, and the flash drive, it read this now. So I tried the camera, and it recognised it.

So I don't know exactly what the problem was, but it was solved... saved me a lot of running around and money ;)

Cannot download photos


What is ptp utility new to me. I suggest the first thing to do is if you have the software from the disk loaded - you un install it. Restart the computer - plug camera in and set it to upload mode. Windows scanner/Camera Wizard will take you along from there. If it does not change the USB port. Come back with the next move
