Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to transfer 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). 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 management program such as Picasa.

SOURCE: Camcorder not detected by my computer

I had the same problem with my Canon HF S11 camcorder and found the solution was to connect the usb cable to the back usb port of my computer. Imagemixer then detected the camcorder to transfer videos. Hope this helps.

It may be a USB port issue or a USB cable issue. Try an alternate cable or a different USB port. Try other USB devices on those same ports to make sure they work. Try using a USB card reader to transfer photos from the card directly instead of plugging in your camera directly.

How to transfer images of mobile nokia 7210 to pc to send an emai


You need a "Sync" cable from your phone to one of the USB ports on your computer. With that you should be able to extract the pics from the phone with the following:
Turn on computer, plug sync cable into phone and turn on, plug USB cable into computer, listen for gong acknowledgement, go to Start button (lower left) on computer screen, click once, look for my computer or computer on right column, click on that to see what is connected to your computer, look for your phone, if it's not there, stop-I don't what to tell you. If it is, click it to open up the phone, dig down to look for your pics, when and if you see them, right click on each one and drag and drop unto your desktop, you can maneuver them from there. This works with most peripherals that plug into a USB port.

Go get a card reader and transfer your images thru that. That's the only way I ever transfer my images from camera to computer. You can get one relatively inexpensive...that is...if your computer doesn't already have a card slot in it.

Cannot transfer images from my Canon DSLR XTi to my computer


Having same issue as above - I thought it was my cable so I ordered a new one. The camera attempts to 'speak' to the pc - and then the Windows box pops up not recognising the USB installed device....I also uninstalled and reloaded the Canon software (had camera for 18 months and only started this rubbish a month back) - was about to re-laod my entire PC - thankfully I saw it was not only me.

Will send mine in for a Firmware update / service.

I can't seem to send images from my camera via cable or infrared


Simply get a cable that fits. The camera cable should be a standard USB A for the Computer- assuming the computer has USB or is it Sony and fitted with Fire-wire in which you will need an adaptor Fire-wire to USB
