That error message somehow means your USB connector wasn't plugged in properly to the camera. Another thing is that windows xp doesn't have driver for your camera that's why it wasn't recognized. what's the brand of your camera though? If you just want to transfer your pix from camera to pc or vice versa, use a card reader like the guy above me said.

To view the pictures on the computer, remove the card from the battery compartment and put it in a card reader connected to your computer.

After conecting to my computer there is no recocnition of camera on computer, time and date were added before conecting to computer will this make a difference to conection does this affect the internal...

Setting the Date and Time manually does not influence the behaviour of the camera. However, if the camera is not 'recognized' by the computer: Check if the USB cable is properly fitted in the camera. Put the other end in a different computer USB port. The computer should see the camera as a Removeable USB Device. If the problem persists, connect the camera to another computer and see if it is recognized.

I have a nokia n95 china clone on the board D800 v0.2 printed.when i conect with usb cable computer says device not recognize.what is me plese.thanks

It means that the phone should be recognize as mass storage device, if it doesn't recognize it, you can try by restarting the PC with the phone connects to the computer, when the computer boots, it should be recognize as Mass Storage Device. You need no driver.

Bad USB conection?

it's not likely the cable went bad.  Do you have more than one USB port you can try? do you have other USB devices to test the port? did you reboot?
