Hello.Please try this.With the camera turned off make the connections.Turn the camera on.Wait a few seconds to see if a new hardware message appears.If it does wait till the message says your new hardware is ready to use.Wait a few seconds to see if a window opens asking you what you want to do,(open folder,get pictures,etc.)If so make your choice and proceed. If you don't see this window click My Computer look to see if your camera shows up in the Other Devices list if so open it and your pictures should be accessable. If none of this works try shutting your computer down make all the connections turn your camera on and start the computer. If your problem continues post back in the comments box .
Hi, When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.
Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

CNET's review states that this camera connects to USB, but no mention is made of it being compatible with USB2. Theoretically it should be compatible since USB2 ports are supposed to be backwards compatible with USB 1.1. Yet I have other USB 1.1 devices which will cause "device not ready" error messages when I try to connect them to a USB2 port. Interestingly, the CNET article doesn't list Windows XP as a compatible OS. Another person posted that he received the same error message when trying to connect his camera to his 64-bit XP computer.
In any event, Largan's web site doesn't make any mention of them producing complete cameras -- only camera components. Perhaps their foray into the digital camera market was less than successful.
So, while this isn't truly a solution post, perhaps it may point you in the right direction as to possible causes of the device not ready error message.
Consider 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.
I had the same problem trying to transfer pics from my camera. The error message is "The Device is not Ready." I got mad when I read the "solution" from the "plumber" that said to read the directions. DUH!. Now for the real solution... and reading the directions won't help. Your PC is trying to find the camera connected to a specific drive. In my case it was the "E" drive which was already in use, mapped to a shared drive. Once I disconnected that drive it fixed my problem. To disconnect, highlight the drive, go to Tools and Disconnect Network Drive. Reboot the PC and plug the camera in before booting back up. (If you have hardware connected to the drive, right mouse click on the drive and eject.)
If your computer is a Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista it does not need any additional software. Remove any camera associated software and simply plug the camera in- The Camera/Scanner Wizard will come up and ask what it is you want to do. Let Windoze do the work.
If you sill get this message go to Control panel/system/device manager and check the USB devices for any yellow error signs. If you have one come back and tell us about it.
1. Use the eject command in Explorer or on the system tray to eject the USB drive safely.
2. Let me be blunt. I can't count how many machines are not up todate on motherboard drivers, BIOS and the OS itself. It's not your fault, but it falls to the owner to maintain the machine.
