Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera
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...
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...
