I cant find the disc that came with my camera when i bought it,can you tell how i can upload my photos pls?


Hello,
Most modern cameras allow direct file copying.All you need to do is to
1) Connect the camera to your computer using the USB able that came along with your camera.
2) Now the pc will detect the camera and show it as a storage device,just like it would show a pen drive.
3) Now you can open the newly detected storage and there you will find the pictures taken with your
camera.Look inside all folder available within the drive to find your pics.
4) Now you can simple copy the pics there and paste in on any folder/drive on your computer hard disk
like you would copy any other file.i.e,simply selecting all the files you need to upload to your pc,right click
and then select the option Copy,and then browsing to any folder on your hard disk,right click and then
select paste.

Hope it helped,thanks for using Fixya!

what if you don’t have DVD-ROM and you are running Windows XP, you might have guessed in this case we can’t install windows 7. Since Windows 7 ISO size is around 2.24 GB so its obvious that you will need to burn windows 7 iso on DVD and another issue is you can’t start windows 7 installation by mounting ISO file on windows XP as Windows XP upgrade to windows 7 is not allowed. In such situation installing windows 7 from USB pen drive is feasible solution.

mbrwiz /list (note down disk number of your USB Pen drive)
mbrwiz /disk=X /active=X (X is Disk Number of your USB Drive)
exit
6. Now open another command window and type following command
J: (Drive letter of Windows 7 iso mounted with demon tool)
CD boot

My transcend 2 GB pen drive is not detected in windows xp?please reply me how i solve this problem.


Hi,
Try connecting your pendrive in some other computer and if not working in different machines also, then the problem is with your pen drive. If genuine transcend pen drive, then claim it under warranty to get the new one.

If working in other computers but not with your computer, then try connecting the drive to your computer via the USB ports directly available behind your computer as this may fix the issues with USB extension cables and usb spliters, if any

I hope this is helpful to you
Thanks

Sir i purchased hitachi camera pen. it is detected


If you have installed the program. Uninstall it.

Unplug the pen (or any devices associated with it) from the computer.

1. Insert Disc and intstall the program.

2. When prompted, insert the device into the computer as instructed. Follow all instructions.

3. Once installed, remove disc, restart computer.

4. The computer will detect the device as the computer is loading. Wait for all "start up" programs to load, then select the program and it should open and operate.

If it is plugged into a USB Port, and is not being detected, try using another port. Do not plug such utilities into a Port Adapter, as it most likely will not be detected.

It must be plugged directly into a USB Port installed on the computer (or laptop).

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Backing up files


ok to back up your flash pen you need to connect it in your computer and let the system detect and install automatically its driver. Then when the computer will prompt that the new device is ready to used then go to my computer then locate the flash pen then you can start copying your back up now. Don't forget after you finished transferring your back up to safety remove your falsh pen.
Thanks
