Re: Need help downloading pics to computer

Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.

Kind Regards

Cant put pics onto my memory card for my camera help?

You can't transfer pictures from internal memory to a memory card, sorry. You need a USB cable to connect the camera to your computer then you can transfer the pictures to the computer.

Hope this helps.

For some reason now my computer wont recognise my canon powershot A560 -says something about connection.I use to get a window on view screen on my camera that i used to download pics onto computer via usb...

Windows updates changes the registry and sometimes causes our "toys" to stop working. You can contact Microsoft and get instructions to re-write your registry(very dangerous if you don't know what you're doing) or, you can do what the pros do to avoid this very common problem....get a card reader! typrice_40.jpg

I can't upload pictures from my camera b/c the usb link does not recognize the camera.

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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

Well i have a DXG 3.0 megapixel video camera im having problems uploading pictures to my computer.Ive put the disk in that it came with but that doesn,t even work.So im pretty much running out of options...

Highly recommend that you consider using a card reader to download your pictures. You insert the camera's memory card into the reader, and then insert the reader into a USB port on your computer. The card then shows up as a hard drive so that you can simply copy/paste or drag your picture files onto your computer. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon:

The DXG uses SD cards:

Cant download pictures usb

Take your sd memory card out of your camera, and put it in your computer. A file with your pictures should appear. Copy thoes pictures into a different fold on you computer. Take you sd memory card out of your computer and plug it back into your camera. Your pictures will be both on your camera and on your computer.

I hope this solution helps. Please rate this solution.

USB cables

make sure you plug the small plug on your usb cable into your camera...easy..
the big plug on your usb cable must be plugged into your usb port on your computer. It can only fit in one way and not upside down. It will also fit into your network port, but this not correct port. If your usb plug fits into the port the right way up, and upside down, then it is the wrong port. If your computer is old, then it may not have a usb port.

Problem Uploading Pics through USB Port

Are you using the Kodak software?

Try uninstalling and re-installing it, remembering to re-boot the computer after uninstalling, before re-installing.

A MUCH faster way of transferring pics, is to use a USB card reader. Take the memory card from the camera and place it in the card reader.
