Epson P-2000 won't fully transfer images in XP...

Just purchased an Epson P-2000. Can successfully download memory card to device with JPEG images from Konica Minolta 5D camera, and can view and manage images properly. Installed software on my XP computer which is fully updated by Microsoft (SP2). When I connect cable to P2000, dialog box appears and I select to view files in a folder. Folder appears and I navigate to the image folder. When I try to copy images to my desktop, it creates the folder and starts copying images. However, it stops after 6 or 7 images and will not copy more. When I try to view the image thumbnails in that folder on the P2000, the placeholders all show up but only a few thumbnails actually ever appear. I cannot manually copy these images off the device onto my computer. Sometimes locks up Explorer forcing Ctl-Alt-del to end task. The images themselves are not corrupt, and I can connect the original memory card and download images properly. Updated firmware to latest via website. Did not fix issue. I have plenty of free space on my machine (8 gigs). Please assist. (response from Epson) There may be a background application or service causing the issue. These instructions will provide you with the method for booting up Windows XP with all unnecessary services and utilities disabled for troubleshooting purposes. Please be sure to re-enable all services and utilities that you disabled after you complete the troubleshooting process. NOTE: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may also prevent you from completing this procedure. 1. Click START, click RUN, type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks) in the Open box, and then click OK. 2. On the GENERAL tab, click SELECTIVE STARTUP and then clear all of the subsequent check boxes except LOAD SYSTEM SERVICES. NOTE: You will not be able to clear the USE ORIGINAL BOOT.INI check box. 3. Click SERVICES tab, click HIDE ALL MICROSOFT SERVICE and then click DISABLE ALL. 4. Click OK, and then click CLOSE to restart your computer. *NOTE* If you are already using selective startup you will need to go to the startup tab and make note of what is selected to return your system to its original state. If you are using Normal startup already this information would not apply. (My response to Epson) I followed the instructions above and the problem persists. I can access the P2000, and when the files begin to copy, it goes thru several and freezes for a minute or so. Then, a dialog box appears that says, "Cannot copy (filename). The path is too deep." When I disconnect the P2000, the machine unfreezes. When I reconnect it, it sees the unit again. I went into "My Computer" and "Manage", and changed the drive letter of the P2000 to a free drive letter, but the condition persists. I tried copying the files from "Cards" to an Album, and the condition persists. When I look under Disk Drives in Device manager, right-click the Epson, it brings up the dialog box. When I start clicking the tabs in Properties, it freezes up. (now waiting for Epson or someone to help further) Thanks.

One complication is that your computer does not have the SP3 update and a couple of unidentified ones Microsoft threw in after support for XP ended.

SOURCE: Epson P-3000 image/multimedia viewer will

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. Updating the Firmware would have resolve the issue that you have but it don't. If epson says that you need to send it for repair it does not means that this is just a problem with the hardware. Sending the device to epson would be better so that the can check if this is a problem with the software or hardware then they will replace or fix the issue with your viewer.
Thanks

Cannot take so much pictures. what is a memory stick. is it different from memory card?


A memory stick generally refers to a USB device that you use to transfer digital media from one device to another. Your camera would utilize a memory card - depending on your camera this could be a CF card (bigger almost square) or a SD card (looks like a SIM card.

As to the number of pictures you can take: This depends on a number of things - 1) Internal memory of the Camera 2) Size of your memory card 3) Settings you shoot with.

Depending on the camera you have you can set the quality and type of format - format could be your camera's raw capability which is usually the largest size to save an image in or it could be set to JPEG (here you normally have settings like Fine, Medium and High or Small, Medium, Large) some cameras only offer JPEG output and will only show you the option to set it on small, medium or large.

Smaller size = More photos, but keep in mind that this affects what you can do with the photo. If you want to use it for the Web or mobile then small is no problem, if you want to print the photo then a medium (preferably large) setting should be used.

The best is to have multiple cards and then you can continue shooting even if you are not at a place where you can download what you have already.

Memory card is full and when I plug in the USB cord and turn on the camera I get a message that my device is not connected or is busy, or that it contains no pictures!!


Causes of memory card corruption
  • Turning off a camera before an image is completely written to the memory card.
  • Removing the memory card from a camera while an image is being written to the card.
  • Removing the card from a memory card reader while files are still being transferred to a computer.
  • Batteries conking out as files are being transfered directly from the camera to a computer. Note: always make sure you have fully charged batteries before transferring images.
  • Removing the card from a card reader while folders and files from the card are open on a computer.
  • Opening, deleting, renaming or moving files on the card while its contents are open on a computer.
  • Using a memory card which has not been formatted in the camera. Use the delete/erase function when needed, however a card should be regularly formatted.
  • Formatting a card in a computer instead of the camera.
  • Inserting a second memory card into a card reader before closing and removing the first when viewing images on the card from a computer.
  • Taking photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Taking photos too rapidly so the camera can not complete writing one image before starting the next.
  • Continually shooting and deleting, shooting and deleting images when the card is full.
  • Letting a memory card get too full before downloading the images to a computer or storage device. Cards that are too full may overwrite the card headers.
  • Using a memory card from one camera in a different camera without formatting it in the new camera first.

An external reader is the best solution. It will transfer the images way faster than using a cable connected to the camera. See if there is a setup option in your camera that chooses the SD card only for storing photos. If there is, then select it.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

Please tell me how I transfer images which have been saved on the camera itself, to an external device, cd or memory stick. The camera is a Panasonic DMC LZ2 Thanks


If the memory card fits into the camera, there's a menu option to copy images to/from internal memory.

Otherwise, you will have to connect the camera to a device capable of acting as a USB master. Most external devices do not do so but, like the camera, only act as USB slaves. Thus, in order to transfer images from the camera to such a device, you would need to have both devices connected to a computer.

There are a few devices designed to back up photographs, such as an Epson P5000. These will read a memory card and transfer images to the built-in hard drive.

USB device not recognized


you can buy a memory card that suites your camera ( xD, sD, MMC) you should see your camera manual to find what type of those memory cards works with it, then transfer the images to the card. after that, you can buy a memory card reader for cheep from best buy or whatever store and transfer images to PC easily.
