Where do you connect a digital camera on your computer?

It has USB ports. Two of them, but I'm told they are slower ones.

How old is this "older computer"
It may not matter, what im thinking is that you could pick up a card reader from any electronics store and plug it into your usb. Then your computer will see the reader as a removable device in my computer. This would be the easiest way.

The other way is to first install the software that came with the camera. Then plug the camera into the usb ports and transfer the pictures thruough the program that came with the camera. Sometimes this can be tricky and not work 100% the first time.

Also what kind of camera do you have ?
What kind of OS are you running XP,Vista,etc.?
What kind of card are you trying to get the pictures off of?

What you have is probably a CF reader. You're best solution probably would be to get a card reader that uses one of your computer's USB ports, presumably where you were initially trying to connect your camera.

Many people find it more convenient to just take the memory card out of the camera and put it in a card reader, especially now that these readers are built into computers and printers. That would be a "work around" for your problem.

As to the problem itself, a bad cable might be the cause, with damaged connectors. That is something you can replace cheaply (search Amazon on "Olympus SP-500 USB") so it won't be expensive to check it out.

Slow transfer might be due to using an older standard USB port. The first USBs were much slower than USB2 widely used now. Some older computers only have the earlier standard, and some have a mix of old and new.

Can i charge my camera from my usb port


It should charge but quite a bit slower. Figure about 4 to 6 hours for a full charge. Of course the computer has to be running to power the usb port.

You may also have to change settings for the USB under control panel system hardware device manager then select properties of the usb port. There will be an option for how much power the port will supply.

Or you can just plug it in and see if it works. Most newer ports (USB 2.0 type) support powering usb devices. Only a few older ones (usb 1.0's) won't or can't.

Xp computer say camera is a high speed device and


This means that your camera is a USB 2.0 device, but you connected it to a (slower) USB 1.1 port.
Usually, this is only a hint and you should still be able to download images, albeit rather slow.

To fix this you should first try to connect the camera directly to one of the USB ports at the rear side of your computer and see if this fixes the problem. If so, there either is some problem with the front side USB port or you were using a USB 1.1 hub.
If you still get a warning, your computer obviously is equipped with a USB 1.1 interface only. You could add USB 2.0 support by installing a USB 2.0 card like this.

Camera is not being recognuzed


Do not connect the camera to the computer. Buy a small card reader and use it instead to transfer pictures to the computer. It will be several times faster if you have a USB 2.2 port. The camera could only transfer at 1.1 speed, which is several times slower anyways. Then use any free photo manipulation program (e.g. Irfanview) to adjust / store the photos in albums, etc.

When i plug in my ipod shuffle to my computer it doesnt recognize it or itunes. can you help?


Are you using a PC and not a Mac?
If so, Shuffle's require a USB2 connection on PCs. Some PCs advertise USB2 ports. However, sometimes the USB port on the front of the machine is actually the slower USB v1. Try connecting your Shuffle to a USB port on the back of the machine. If it works, that's the one you need to always connect to.

Computer not recognizing Camera


Are you always using the same USB-port on your PC? If yes try to use another USB-port.
If the above solution will not work try to re-install the camera drivers.

Video problems


If your camcorder is a digital version, you should have a 1394 iLink Firewire cable which is needed to connect your camcorder to your PC. A Firewire is a higher transfer rate connection than USB 1.0 (but slower than USB 2.0), and it is intended for applications such as video editing. Some camers, e.g., Sony, require a Firewire connection to exploit certain features of a digital camcorder and editing software, and it's best to use one. If you do need the Firewire but your computer doesn't have a 1394 Firewire port built in, you can purchase a PCI card version for around $50 and install it separately very easily.

And if your computer doesn't have the 1394 port, but does have a USB 2.0 connector (all newer computers now do), then you can connect your camcorder to your PC via the USB 2.0 (note: NOT a USB 1.0!) to begin capturing video. If you're still having trouble, make sure you go to your camcorder manufacturer's website to download any relevant drivers then retry your connection. If your computer Finds New Hardware sucessfully, you're in. Good luck!

General USB Troubleshooting


While USB connections are significantly faster and easier to set up than older serial or SCSI connections they are not foolproof. Here are some tips: Be sure to connect the cable properly One side of the cable is "keyed" so it will only fit properly one way. Do not force it in if it does not smoothly connect. Notice how the USB plug is "keyed" and will only fit properly in one direction. The USB connector on the back of the computer. Connect directly to a USB port on the computer. While USB hubs allow many devices to connect to a computer they are not always reliable for high-speed connections like digital cameras. Connect to a port on the back of the computer. Many computers have extra USB ports on the front or on the keyboard. These are generally built-in hubs which may cause problems as described above. Connect to an AC adapter or use a freshly charged battery To prevent problems during transfer be sure that the camera has enough power to complete image transfers. Remove other devices To troubleshoot problems, remove any other USB devices and connect just the Nikon product for testing.
