Hi there
the software is not needed
connect your camera
open (my) computer
look for a hard drive icon that wasn't there before
click on it and inside there will be a folder with your jpegs in it
you can then view them with any software i.e windows photo gallery or if you are using a mac you can use front row.

hope this helps

Hallo, I have a Canon SD750 ELPH and have enjoyed using it for a couple of years. I had no trouble uploading pictures to my PC with a USB Cable. Yesterday, I took some pics (which I can view easily on the...


Skip the cable, software and so on.
Get a card reader/writer. They are not very expensive, and can be bought at most stores such as Walmart, Walgreens, Officemax, Radioshack, and so on.
No software is necessary and the camera does not need to be used at all. Simply put the card in the reader and copy all files to the computer.

dear sir,

the first solution is to keep some of your phone memory clear,atleast 2 mb.........also keep some 100 mb free space in memory card also...if the card and mobile is fully loaded then the cam is almost dead..........
the next suspect must be your memory card,which has been affected from viruses,while you ve transfered files or received files from untrusted devices,which eventually destroys ur camera also.......
even ater changing memory card,you still face the same problem with a new or formatted memory card,then the problem is caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not tofunction,the only solution is to flash ur camera software from the nearest sevice centre.

thank you.....take care

Cannot download photos from Nikon Coolpix4600 and have misplaced the program that came with the camera.


Try connecting the camera to the PC and open the camera files using My Computer. You should be able to view the files and copy or move them from the camera to the desired folder on your computer.
If the camera can use an SD card, you could always copy the pics to the card and then connect the card to your computer and download them from there.
Most digital still software is just fancy image editing software anyway.

Software


If you're running Windows try the Microsoft software:

Start>Programs>Accessories>Scanner and Camera Wizard........(path on my computer)

This should be able to upload the images from your camera via the usb cable.

I have a Nikon D70s camera. I have misplaced my copy of Picture Project the “yellow disc” which installs the software, which allows me to download the images from my camera to my computer. I have had to...


I own a nikon D40x and it doesn't need the software to download the pictures to the computer. But I'm not sure if it works the same way with your camera.
If you need the software go to this link, it says updater but they also included the link for the Full install version, install it then download the updates for the program. However you will need to register/create account for you to download the file, they will ask you for the Serial Number/License Key/Unlock Code so I suggest you look for it before you go to the site.

Have you checked the HP hep site?
Here is their suggestion
Introduction This document explains how to transfer images from the camera to a computer running Windows XP operating system by using a universal serial bus (USB) cable. Transferring the images Follow the steps below to transfer images from the camera to a Windows XP computer. Step one: Connect the camera to the computer
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. The camera came with a special USB cable for connecting the camera to a computer. Connect the large end of that USB cable to the computer. Figure 1: Connect the USB cable c00878070.gif
  3. Open the rubber door on the side of the camera and connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the camera.
Step two: Transfer the images Choose one of the following methods to transfer the image files: Method one: Transfer images with the HP Photosmart software
  1. Make sure the HP Photosmart software is installed on the computer. If the software is loaded, then go to step 2. If the software is not loaded, click here to upgrade to the latest version of imaging and printing software (in English).
  2. If images on the camera are selected for printing or selected for HP Instant Share destinations, make sure the computer is connected to a printer and the Internet.
  3. Turn on the camera. The HP Import Photos software starts on your computer. If you have set the software to automatically transfer the images in the camera, the images automatically transfer to the computer. Otherwise, in the Transfer images from Camera/Card screen, click Start Transfer . The images are transferred to the computer, and then if there are any still images that were previously selected for HP Instant Share destinations, those actions are started.
  4. When the Image Action Summary screen appears on the computer, you can disconnect the camera from the computer.
Method two: Transfer images without the HP Photosmart software If you do not, or cannot, install HP Photosmart Software on your computer, you can still transfer images from the camera to the computer using the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) in Windows XP. Follow the steps below to transfer images.
  1. Turn on the camera. Windows will automatically launch a program to transfer the images.
  2. When the images have finished transferring, disconnect the camera from the computer.
  3. If you encounter problems, check that the camera USB Configuration in the Setup Menu is set to Digital Camera .
    1. While in Live View , press the Live View/Playbackc00591915.gif button, and then press the Menu/OKc00280209.gif button.
    2. Scroll to the Setup Menuc00595863.gif using the left/right arrow c00280208.gif buttons.
    3. Use the up/down arrow c00280207.gif buttons to scroll through the Setup Menu to highlight the USB option.
    4. Use the left/right arrow c00280208.gif buttons to change the setting to Digital Camera and then press the Menu/OKc00280209.gif button.
    5. To exit from the Setup Menu , press the Live View/Playbackc00591915.gif button.
  4. Reconnect the camera to the computer.

Unable to download images to computer.


You will need something to view the JPGS with.

XP should find the right program....if not
click START, MY COMPUTER, TOOLS tab, FOLDER OPTIONS, FILE TYPES, see if JPG is there, if not click NEW, if it IS there click the CHANGE and use the XP Window PICTURE VIEWER.

Then you are set.

Good Luck

How do I rotate my vertical photos back to horizontal?


I don't think your camera has that facility[to rotate image]. As for a slide show you will have to upload the images into a computer to make a slide show- which requires new software-your computer may have some all ready on board- Then will have to be burned to a disk if you want to view it off computer- the camera is out of this equation now. Come back if you would like recommendation for slide show software

Reinstalling software


Close down the computer. Reboot the computer go to Control panel Add/delete software - find the Olympus file and click delete. When done do not re install, but put the CD back in the box, Windows does very well without it. If you need an image editor download Picasa it free. If you want an image viewer Download Irfanview- that's free too. Software the comes with camera is always bet left in the box in my view

Cannot View Uploaded File


try opening the photos with any other viewing software you have - paint, windows picture and fax viewer to name but 2. If you get the same results then the files are probably corrupt, and the probability is that your memory card could be causing the problem, try another card and see if pictures you take can be viewed. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the camera and the olympus software, it just might help. If this doesn't work please post again and we could give you some info on software for recovering corrupt and deleted files. Hope this helps :)
