My Computer will not communicate with my camera The camera is listed in the hard drive


You didn't say why you want the camera and computer to communicate, so I'm assuming it's so you can download photos from the camera to the computer. You also didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm assuming it uses a memory card of some type.
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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I bought a new firewire to download video from my digital video camera but don't see where to plug the end that goes to the computer? I have an eMachine tower desktop


if there isn't one in back you probably do not have a firewire connection, however there are aftermarket cards that can be inserted into your machine that will allow you to have this port. They are called firewire PCI hubs.

I would like to reset my computer completely


If you have the original system installation discs, put the number one disc in the computer and boot from it, follow the prompts and insert discs as they are requested. When the discs are fully installed, connect to the internet and run windows update.

Firewire PCI card not recognized


Hello,

Sometimes, when one is inserting a card, one does not push it firmly in place. If some contacts are not well established, the card may not be recognized.

Hope it helps.

Did you check to make sure the card is seated correctly? Try removing and reseating and make sure the card is level and firmly inserted in the slot and repeat the driver installation.

I hate my computer!


No, this doesn't cost unless you sign up for Premium Assistance.
  1. Remove the disc from the drive.
  2. Look at the top of the disc (or game box). Verify whether it is a CDROM or DVD-ROM.
  3. If it is a DVD-ROM, verify the drive on your computer that you are inserting the disc into is capable of reading DVD-ROMs.
  4. Go to My Computer and verify which drive letter is the drive you'll be inserting the disc into.
  5. Insert the disc.
  6. Wait 20 seconds. If the disc doesn't automatically start up, go to step 7.
  7. Open My Computer and double click the drive containing the disc.
  8. If My Computer now shows the disc contents, find the most likely ".exe" file and run it.
