I borrowed a Caplio R5 camera, have taken some super pics, but couldn't download onto computer. So took the memory stick to Boots and their developer couldn't find the photos. Put the memory stick...


The Photo's are currently stored on the cameras internal memory, you'll need to transfer them to the card using the camera's menu options.

Failing that, plug the camera into your PC and switch on, a box should appear asking you which programme would you like to access the new device with.

Select the folder option, then click on and open any folders therein, one will be the camera memory the other the card memory.

I lost the cd that came with the camera so I can't view pics on my pc


Its actually easier to do it all manually:
7. How do I transfer pictures from my Mustek camera to a computer? Use the USB cable provided in the package to connect your camera to a computer.

Note: Make sure you connect to your computer (NOT to a USB hub).
    1. Go to MY COMPUTER.
    2. Double-click REMOVABLE DISK drive.
    3. Double-click DCIM folder.

I am trying to transfer pics from my camera to my pc ??? i plugged it in and card is in camera but nothing?? help?


Here are some steps to run through to make sure the camera works as you'd expect it:

  1. Ensure that all cables are properly secured from the computer to the camera.
  2. Ensure that the memory card has not been dislodged from the camera.
  3. Check the camera's memory socket and the memory card for debris. A can of 'compressed air' can work wonders (typically available at any computer store).
  4. Make certain that the port connecting the camera to the computer is not damaged. Look for any bent pins in the camera's memory slot. Try replacing the camera cable. If the camera uses a USB port, try another USB port. If you don't have another USB port available, try plugging in another USB device to verify that the USB port is working.
  5. Check the power source on the camera. If you're using batteries while attempting to transfer the pictures to the PC, try changing your batteries, recharge the batteries, or use an A/C adapter.
  6. Try reinstalling the digital camera software on your computer. In most cases, reinstalling over top of the existing software will resolve this issue.
  7. Take the media out of the digital camera and attempt to download it to another computer. If all else fails, try formatting the camera media. Most newer-generation digital cameras equipped with an LCD screen have a menu option that can format your media.
Hope this helps.

I need the drivers for windows 7 for the olympus 1030 sw. In fact, when I connect the camera, it doesn't install automatically, and I think there's no correct drivers in it.


I plugged my 1030sw into my computer and while it was recognized, I couldn't access the camera to download any of the pics. Even when I went to "My Computer", it didn't appear but Device Manager showed that it was plugged in and "working fine".
I unplugged the camera and plugged it back in. This time, I chose the "PC" option, then clicked "right arrow" and selected MTP option instead of Storage option and then I was able to extract my photos.
Hope that helps

Cannot get picts frm cam


first - check physical connection:
when the camera is connected to the computer through usb, the camera should be turned on, nothing will appear on the screen and you will see a flashing light from the camera signifying that it's "making a connection"

if, the camera screen is active while connected to pc, that means it's not making connection so check other USB port, like the back -it's more reliable as it's directly connected to the motherboard, not a hub like that of the one in the front of the tower

when it's showing a flashing light, check if the computer shows an "image transfer window" - that will appear if you are using Kodak Easyshare Software, if you don't have it installed, check if WIA (Windows Imaging Acquisition) transfer options will automatically pop up

If not please check this
rightclick on My Computer> properties> Hardware> device manager

1. check if the cam is a subcategory of the Universal Serial Bus Controllers -

a. IF IT IS, highlight it, rightclick and select Update Driver, select bottom options until it asks you to choose between "Kodak Camera" and "Digital Still Camera", select "Digital Still Camera"
now it will update then check if it would appear under "Imaging Devices" (if you have XP) or "Portable Devices" (if you have Vista)
a transfer window should appear using WIA, then follow prompts
a.1 if it created it's own category under Device Manager, open my computer, select your camera and it will act like a removable disk, so you can copy and paste pics


b. IF IT IS NOT, please check if it's under a Kodak Category (open my computer, select your camera and it will act like a removable disk, so you can copy and paste pics) or Imaging Devices/Portable Devices, righclick on your cam model or kodak camera> update driver, select bottom options and at the part where it asks you to choose bet the kodak cam and digital still, please select the Kodak Cam, then an Eeasyshare Software Transfer Window should appear (that's if you have Easyshare Software)

you can dl it from www.kodak.com/go/easysharesw

Transferring pics


Have you taken new pictures with the device, or are these already possibly transferred to your system/PC? If they are already on your PC, it will not add them again (to save you space).
If you chose transfer all, what do you get as a result? Check the log for help.

Oploading video


you need to know where the default folder is that your camera transfers pics and video to, on your pc, it could be a folder named as the date you transfered or Kodak or simply transfers automatically to my pictures or my video, so connect the camera again and see where it is transfering them to. If you mean you cannot open the file, then you may not have the required software to do it, so when you find the file, right click on it and then select 'Open With' and then in the next option line will be any programme you have installed to view videos. If when you right click and then there is no available programme, click browse instead and then look on your c:/ drive and then programme files and look for similair programmes to windows media player or quicktime, the select the option 'Always open files of this type using this programme'

FZ5 to PC download problems


My golden rule with any digital camera is to ignore the cr@p software that comes with it - it is NOT required to download the photos off the camera. Simply (assuming you're using Windows XP) goto "My Computer", select the removable drive that is the camera (e.g. drive E:), go down a few levels of folders and you will see the files - select and copy or cut.
