Try uninstalling your digital camera software, restart your computer, then reinstall the software. This should reboot your camera and it's components.
hope it helps!

SOURCE: Can't download pictures!

The problem might be the computer is not communicating with the software program. You can try to use another software from a photo smart or kodak easy share.

The easiest way also go to a store get your pictures on a CD, then download from the CD to the computer.

Take care

SOURCE: downloading digital pictures to the computer

Try next to locate the problem:
1. Connect other equipment to the same USB port on your PC to see if it works, if it is OK
2. Replace the cable
If that don't help, the problem is probably in the camera.

SOURCE: my computer cannot detect my canon SD 750 camera when i try to download my pictures

I discovered a workaround for this problem...I pulled the memory card and inserted it directly into my laptop, which happened to have this type of port. It allows me to pull directly off the card. I still cannot connect via a cable, but this at least lets me get pictures loaded to my computer.

1. Stop trying to connect your camera to the computer. Obviously, this is only giving you problems. 2. Get a card reader. Use it to download your pictures from now on. 3. When removing anything (camera, card reader, etc.) from a USB port on your computer, always use the "safely remove hardware" function.

I get an error message when downloading my pictures of 802a006. When Im trying to view the pictures on my camera it reads unidentified image. What can I do to save or repair these pictures?


Here is what you can try.
Don't use the camera for downloading the pictures.
Buy a card reader.. prices vary from a few $$ on Ebay (for instance) to maybe near $20.00 for the best kinds.Also many printers now come with the card readers built in. Use the card reader for downloading the pictures from your card from your camera. Since I repair a number of kinds of cameras, I use a card reader...no software needed, no drivers.
Download the pictures in a folder (preferably on C, or another drive in it's own folder, not in my documents) and then use a program to view, edit or save to cd or DVD.
A nice thing about a card reader is that with most newer operating systems the card reader will be detected as a mass storage device.

Downloading pictures


Try 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Pictures cannot be download


When you try to transfer a large number of files (or a single large file) from a PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) device, such as a Sony Memory Stick, you may receive an error message saying that your computer cannot detect your camera or that, although it has detected the camera, the current picture cannot be copied. This happens because in older versions of WinXP the PTP driver limits file transfer to 2,048 files at one time and those files must be less than 210MB. If you update WinXP with Microsoft's latest service pack you should eliminate the problem.

Canon A460; Downloading pics to computer


I have the exact same camera and all I did to put my photos on the computer was plug my camera into the computer using the USB cable provided. A wizard window should pop up and click on import photos. If that doesn't work, then I'm not sure what to do. I have windows Vista, by the way.

Cannot Upload Pictures from Camera


Have you tried a memory card reader?

What software are you using? I would try Nikon View. If this is what you are using, make sure you haven't set some of the options in the download window, as you can choose to download only photos within a certain a date range, or photos with cetrain attributes. You get an error message somewhat similar to the one you describe if you've set these options and no pictures match them.
