Consider 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.

SOURCE: Wont upload pics

I tend to NOT use the cables that come with my cameras. They are slow, and often incompatible with whatever operating system or other software you have online.

I would simply take out the camera's memory card (XD or SD or whatever it may be,) and buy a $10 USB card reader for that chip format. It's faster, simpler, better, and you don't have to deal with the camera's proprietary software. Hope this helps!

Canon Rebel XTi not recognized when plugged into usb


Vista is your problem. Solution...buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

Everytime I plug my Polaroid i733 into the USB Cord to transfer my pictures, it comes up as USB Error and says that is has malfunctioned


Okay could be a program error with windows and that port. If you have a port on your pc SD Mini port take your camera card out and slid it into the PC port SD mini. it "should accept your photos." download them into My picture folder or some where you can remember. My doc, or my downloads. Oh what many for get is the pic's on your camera will be huge. maybe 3Mbs each, so be sure to compress them. Or it will take for ever and a day to email them. Compressing will not damage the Pic quality.

Driver and instructions to pull pics off camera


You can download them, or you could use a card reader which plugs into the usb port of your computer. I prefer the usb card reader, no drivers needed.
If you are using the camera and cable, then you need the drivers from GE.

Downloading from pc to digital photo frame


Solution:

1. I don't think the USB Cable was given to Download Photos from the computer - I think it was given to upload photos to the Computer.

2. The manufacturer has either gave you the wrong cable for a different type of Operating system or you are trying to put it in the wrong port.

Suggestion:

1. Call a Technical Support Line (Probably found on back of instruction booklet.)

or

2. Send the Product back to the company.

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
