Found this A205. Bought memory card and USB cable. Some things work. Was able to connect through USB port and view contents of memory card on the computer. When camera is powered up in Photo mode, get little musical bleeps, and green light, LCD displays view through lens, as well as message "Date/Time not set". BUT, pushing the menu/OK key or the Back key (or the display key, or any others) fails to do anything and camera will not take picture or zoom lens. I cannot access the menu. I suspect a hardware problem relating to the little buttons. I do feel them indent with a gentle click. Any thoughts? Any tests?

Get an USB card reader, insert the SD memory card into the USB card reader and then connect the cable from the USB card reader into the USB port on your computer. Your computer will see the card reader and SD memory as an external storage device, click on this drive and open the folders on the SD memory card to view your photos.
Downloading music onto memory cards allows you to conveniently transport and store your digital audio. Some personal computers come equipped with built-in memory card readers. However, external devices still provide download capability for those who do not own memory card-ready computers. In either case, the drag and drop process allows you to store your favorite music onto memory cards. Instructions
Insert the memory card into an external memory card reader or device associated with the memory card, such as a PDA.
Connect the external memory card reader or device to your computer using a USB cable. Insert one end of the USB cable into the USB port on the external memory card reader or device. Insert the other end of the USB cable into the USB port on the computer.
Wait for the computer to recognize the external memory card reader or device. You will access the external memory card reader or device as if it were a drive in your file manager. Skip Steps 1 through 3 and insert the memory card directly into your computer's built-in memory card reader if applicable.
Open the file icon for the memory card reader or device to view its file contents as a folder.
Open the folder containing the digital audio file you wish to download to the memory card.
Drag and drop your desired digital audio file into the memory card reader or device's open file folder.
You can view the photos from the camera. OR Remove the memory card from the camera and plug it into an USB card reader. Connect the card reader to the USB port on your computer, the computer will see the memory card as an external storage device, open the folders and photos on the memory card and you can copy them to your computer or just view the photos.
In order to connect your console to the internet you will need the following:
Laptop with WiFi
Video capture card
Below are the steps involved includind some additional information:
Go to Settings in the PS3 menu and scroll down to Network Settings. Go to Internet Connection Settings and select your wireless router from the list of available connections. If the router has security, you must input your password. Internet Connection in the Network Settings list will say "Enabled" once you are connected.
Link the laptop and PS3 together through a router if you have one. Connect both the console and computer to the router with Ethernet cables. This is needed for a PS3 with 40 gigabytes of memory and that does not have WiFi.
Connect the devices directly with a USB cable. Use one of the USB-style ports the PS3 uses for its game controllers. This requires a USB cable with two thin connector plugs.
Connecting to a Monitor
Purchase an external video capture card for your laptop. This device will connect to the computer through the USB port and will have both composite and S-video connections.
Connect the capture card to your laptop. Insert its included CD-ROM into your disc drive and install the software on it that allows the computer to recognize the card's drivers and includes a video viewing/editing application.
Attach the PS3 to the capture card using the console's RCA composite cable. Open the video application and turn the console on to view it in the program's screen.
Locate and click the application's "full screen" button to enlarge the game screen to your full monitor. THANKS. MIKE
Your cam may have an option to connect using a cable.Most cams have a port on the camera that allows you to connect a cable and back into the usb port of the computer.And it appears on the computer as a memory device from which you can copy.In case your cam has a memory card .You can purchase a memory card reader which attaches to the usb port.The memory card can be inserted into the reader and photos copied from it.
As long as you have a memory card installed in your phone, you should have no problem. Use a micro SD card of no larger than 4 GB. Attach the cable to your phone and computer via an available usb port. Your pc will then recognize your memory card as a mass storage device, and you cn drag and drop your files to and from the computer.Make sure your phone usb connection is set to mass storage.
To fix this problem go to your menu go to settings than go to connections, now go to the USB hit OK now you will see memory card access, data modem, application access, GPS NMEA and finally help. Make sure it is on memory card access and not any of the other ones the memory card access is to allow a PC to use your phone as a memory card reader. The data modem allows a PC to use your phone as a modem. Application access allows certain PC applications to access the phone. and finally the GPS NMEA allows the phone to output GPS signal from EMU port.
It can sometimes be difficult to setup a digital camera on a new computer. Usually the process is simple: plug the camera in, allow the system to install the driver and begin using the system, however, sometimes things can go wrong. Following these steps can solve more than 90% of problems relating to USB connection issues. You must be thorough and follow it step-by-step.
What CF Card is installed in the camera?
A large number of problems are caused by incompatible CF Cards. In many cases these cards will work while shooting but can fail to properly download to the computer. You must be extra careful that the card is approved. Actually look up the card you are using in the manual to see if it on the list. Many retailers include "Unapproved" cards in their bundles, so just because a card came with the camera doesn't mean that it is "Approved".
If in doubt, use the "Nikon Starter Card" for testing.
Is the Camera in Mass Storage Mode?
While PTP mode can be used if your camera and operating system (Mac OS X and Windows XP) supports it, for troubleshooting it may be useful to switch to MSC USB mode using the camera's setup menus.
Are there images on the card that can be viewed on the camera in playback mode?
Nikon View will not auto launch or give a transfer window with no images on the flash card. If you have covered the first three items you should now connect the camera to the rear USB port (not through a hub or front port) on the computer. On all Windows systems excluding Windows 98 Second Edition (SE) ("Plain" Windows 98 is not supported.) make sure the Nikon View CDROM has been removed from the system prior to connecting the camera.
Does the LCD Display Screen go dark after being connected for 2 seconds?
If you are not getting the "Found New Hardware" wizard then check the LCD display. If the display stays "on" and the camera seems to be in Shooting mode or Playback mode then you may have a bad cable, camera USB port or computer USB port. If this is the case, contact Nikon Support for more information or Click Here for more troubleshooting.
Does "New Hardware Wizard" Start?
If you connect the Camera and a "Found New Hardware" wizard comes up you should allow the system to auto search for the driver by simply clicking the "Next" button until it is finished. (Windows 98SE requires the Nikon View CD-ROM to be in the CD-drive at this point.) On Windows systems newer than Windows 98SE the camera should pick up and use the Microsoft Mass Storage driver.
You need to understand how hardware handshaking works. The hardware Handshake occurs when a USB device is connected to the USB port. The computer detects the USB device on the USB bus and asks: "What are you?" The Coolpix line of cameras should answer: "I am a Nikon Coolpix 5700 currently set to Mass storage mode."
If the computer does not understand this message the most likely cause is an incompatibility with the USB chipset on the partic
