Alright, Whenever I load fresh batteries into the camera and plug it into my laptop, the laptop freaks out, restarting itself, going through a disk check and telling me windows has just went through a serious error. Why does it do this? The disk that came with the camera is installed onto the computer and everything I don't see why there should be a problem. It's only when I put new batteries in, otherwise it's fine.

Remove the USB and uninstall the software fully. Now reinstall once again and ONLY connect the USB when the download prompts or is complete. If not please check this with another PC or else the software or the port is faulty. Also you can easily download the images by using the SD card into the card reader if there is one on the PC or an addional converter can be fixed.
Be sure that your batteries are fully charged and in fact using name brand rechargeable batteries. If you are using Alkalaid, make sure they are fresh. Alks after a use that runs them down will come back after awhile for some more pictures. If you have fresh batteries and the camera turns itself off after turning it on, it probably has a problem in the power supply section or the switching section on/off on a circuit board.
1. Load the software which came with the camera.
2. Run the software.
3. Plug in the camera to either the USB port or other inputs recommended by the camera maker.
4. After connecting the camera to the laptop- leave the camera power on.
5. Restart your Laptop.
6. Your laptop will identify that there is a NEW DRIVE ( which is actually the camera)
7. Open up the new drive ( Letter D or E or F) and explore.
8. Open up each picture file from the camera and save them to your hard disk.
9. Later you can switch off the camera and play around with your pics which are now in the hard disk of your laptop. You can edit and crop your pics now. You can even delete unwanted pics.
10. You may want to delte the files on your camera to enable more pics to be taken. To do that you can either delete pics from the camera itself or load up the cam. to your laptop and delete from your pc.
how old are the batteries and how many times they were charged without being fully drained can cause a short life for the battery. Try a new battery-fully charging it properly, but dont charge it again till it goes off by itself completely. If you have a wall charger, plug your phone in. If it stays on that way, check your 'power save' settings. That can also make your camera shut off. Try these steps first and see if it changes the 'battery' from being empty to full and stays on. hope this helps
This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
Try taking the batteries out and plugging it in. If it powers on, put fresh batteries in and try again off the AC. Once it's powered up from the AC, unplug it and see if it stays on. If it does, try restarting it. Good luck.
Remove the camera software completely.
restart the computer/ plug in the camera making sure the upload switch is set
Windows will do the rest and prestn a new drive in 'My computer' and the scanner camera wizard will come up.
Modern computer do not need software to recieive images from external devices- cameras or card readers
