Re: Cannot download my pics

"I have tried to upgrade but to no avail." i need more info about what happens when you connect your camera but incase you haven't tried, the camera must be turned on after you connect it via usb. vista shouldn't be a problem. does the scanner and camera wizard launch when you connect your camera? i'm not too familiar with olympus models, but try connecting the [powered down] camera to your computer while it's in PLAY mode. power it up and see if windows will launch a prompt. is your computer new? many newer models have card readers built right in. if yours does not, and the above suggestions didn't work, try connecting an external card reader and uploading your images that way.

I just upgraded Vista to Windows7. How can I get software to download pix from my HP620 digital camera. I have it installed in a camera dock.

There are no HP drivers or software for this camera under Win7. However, you may be able to download the images to Paint. I do not know if this will work with the dock; try connecting the camera directly to the computer if it doesn't. Plug in the camera (or place it in the dock), then open Paint (Start, All Programs, Accessories, Paint). Choose File and see if the From Scanner or Camera option is available (if it is grayed out then the OS can't run the camera). Uninstall any earlier drivers before attempting these other steps.
You could try loading/installing the Vista software by downloading from the HP site and running it in the compatability mode.
Download the software, extract the folder contents if needed, then right click on the exe. Choose Properties then the Compatability tab. Check the check box for Run This program as Compatable mode and select the Vista option (I'm not sure which service pack) for a 2007 program version. Then click Apply and OK. Then right click again and Run as administrator.

An additional option is available in Win7 Pro and Ultimate for some computers. Download and install the two programs from Microsoft that create the XP mode. This is a virtual XP computer. Install and use the camera in this "second" computer. You may need to save the images to external media to share them between the two "computers".

I hope this helps.

How do I upgrade the firmware on my Pentax Optio 33LF? Camera goes crazy. Does not recognize any more my SD card (2 Gb)and I'am afraid to loose the photos. I hope if I upgrade the firmware ( vers...

According to the Pentax web site, there is no firmware update available for the 33LF camera. As far as your pics are concerned, you can use a card reader to download them to your computer. Then, you can format the card in the camera and everything should be ok.

Sp 350,says software not recognoized by camera

It could be yet another glych with Vista. Try contacting the Microsoft website, and if there is not a specific patch available - email them.

The Olympus website may have something -


If this still does not work - Email Microsoft or Olympus directly, as you may not be the only one in this situation.

Pics have lines through them changing pic dark

This is not a solution, but how did you get your pictures onto Windows Vista because I've been trying to look for a solution and since you said you had some success, I could really use your help.

Driver for Argus dc2200 digital cameral to run on Microsoft Vista

If the old driver won't work, and Vista won't recognize it without a driver, I'm afraid you're out of luck. If that is the case, find a bud with an old PC and XP Home or earlier OS, and get your pics of the camera that way. Then upgrade to a newer camera.

Good luck!

Try uninstalling the program and then install the earlier version via the CD that came with the camera. If your computer has a built in SD reader, you could use the drag and drop method of transferring your photos as I find that is the easiest and hassle-free way.

Can't download pics from camera

The simple answer is to use and independant card reader and not the camera- It at least will save battery drain.
Coming back to the problem
Check the camera - is it set to upload?
Now check the Computer
Start /Control Pane/ system/Hardware/Device Manager
How do the USB's look?
Any yellow error marks?
Click on the USB symbol/ Driver/ Reload.

Come back with the news - good or bad
