Not uploading pictures

My camera wont upload the pictures when i connect it to the computer. It says that there is nothing to upload, even tho i have lots of pictures on my camera. The powercord I am using to upload the pics isn't made for the Lumix DMC-FZ7, I don't know if that would matter...
Please Help!
Thanks :)

I think I know what the problem is, first off the computer must be able to communicate with the
camera/device irregardless of the drivers. The camera is plug and play and so is the computer
unless you are using an older version of windows like 98 or 98 second edition. If you are 98 etc load
the old drivers. But if you are 2000, millineum, or xp then the drivers are automatic for the usb ports.
The panasonic dmc-fz7 is kind of a freak in that it is not a true plug and play device. Sometimes
you have to declare the new hardware. It may have once worked but for what ever reason the hardware may not jive with what the pc thinks it sees if anything at all.
Solution: Go into the Control panel , add hardware wizard, with the camera hooked up to the usb
port and the camera turned on. In the device manager you should get the appropriate message, "new hardware detected" actually it should say dmc-fz7 etc. From there it should be apparent that things are working normally....Good luck. Probably a power glitch or who knows. Mostly its a problem with panasonic plug and play software which they corrected a year or so later with the newer cameras...

Try and find your camera's driver to download on your computer. Or upload your pictures using your SD card, and not direct through your USB camera.

Camera's wont load on the camera


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Try plugging the camera into your usb port of the computer and then open up "My Computer" and you should see the camera listed in there and you can just double click on it and view the pictures and save where you want.

My camera wont upload videos, but it works fine with pictures.


Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.
