Make sure you're using an SD card, 2GB or smaller. The M407 does not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.


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: trouble transferring pictures from camera to computer

First, Try and install the HP software again. Uninstall the software first and reboot the pc. Then reinstall software. The memory chip maybe have currupt pictures, so format the chip using the camera. You manual should tell you how to do this. Second, Turn the camera on and let the battery run all the way down. This may take some time, maybe a day. Then charge it back up for a day. I hope this helps you out. Let me know.

SOURCE: unsupported card

Hi - You can download the manual by clicking the link underlined in blue below:

See page 166:

Also try formatting the card in the camera as cards that have been used in other cameras or formatted on a PC may not work correctly until formatted in the camera.

SOURCE: Camera gives ''Device not Responding'' message ...

For Windows Vista, try switching the usb settings on the camera from Digital camera to Disc Drive. This converts the camera into an elaborate flash drive/sd card reader.

I also found that the usb connection on the camera may not be responding. This means that there is something wrong with camera part and it may have to be replaced. Replacing that part is not hard to do, but it is tedious because it involves taking the camera apart (removing the main circuit board from the plastic case, removing the LCD, loosing the lens from the circuit board, loosing the circuit board from the chasis of the camera to expose the mini-card circuit board that operates the AC power and usb cable. Switched this board from another camera (m425, or m525 (same board)) and reassemble the camera in the reverse order of disassembly.

SOURCE: digital camera that will no longer connect to the computer.

I don't know about your "picasa" software, and the importing procedure, but you could simply plug your card into the SD slot on your PC, and it will show up as a 'removable drive' located in "my Computer". You can open it and simply copy/paste the photos directly to any folder you wish. In other words, you don't need any specific software to import photos, and to me it's a much simpler process.
If you don't have a card reader on your PC, you can buy a USB to SD adapter to plug into your USB port for $15 +/-

The usb sign doesnt come up when iconnect it in the camera


When your camera is connected to your computer with a USB cable, you need to turn the camera on before the connection is established.

That is maybe why the usb sign does not show.

I cannot download pictures from my LG Neon gt365 to my computer. What do I need to do? Do I need a USB? Do I need a micro SD? If so, what kind do I need? any help would be great!


You should be able to connect it using a usb cable that will need to be bought separately and a micro SD card installed in the phone. You should be able to buy any micro SD card up to 4GB. Also, if you buy a card with an SD adapter that will allow you to connect the SD card (with a memory card reader) to your computer without the additional usb cable. The manual link is attached: http://www.tmoatt.com/uploads/53/LG_Neon_GT365_UG_English.pdf
Per the manual:
Transferring Music from the Digital Music Service 1. Using your computer, open your preferred PC music management client. 2. Download the selected song to your library. 3. Make sure the microSD™ card is inserted properly into the handset. 4. Use the USB adapter cable to connect the handset to the PC. When you try to connect handset on your PC, the handset displays "Call and Message functions will not be available while connected to USB". 5. Once the USB connection has been established, the handset displays "To avoid data corruption always carry out safe removal hardware on PC after use." and the computer screen then shows the LG NEON device. If the detection does not occur, skip to Changing USB Connection Settings section on page 63. 6. Follow the instruction in the program to transfer music to your handset. n Note If you have a USB hub, connect the handset directly to your computer rather than through the hub. Transferring Music using Windows Media Player 1. Open Windows Media® Player on your computer (version 10.0 or higher). 2. Use the USB adapter cable to connect the handset to the PC. When you try to connect handset on your PC, the handset displays "Call and Message functions will not be available while connected to USB". 3. Once the USB connection has been established, the handset displays "To avoid data corruption always carry out safe removal hardware on PC after use." and the computer screen then shows the LG NEON device.

How to upload photos on my computer


They are several ways to upload a picture to the computer. The common way is through the USB cable that should of been provided with the camera. Once the connection is establish, the computer will show an external drive is connected in the My Computer window. Locate that drive and open it. In there you will find the pictures. Then you can copy those files and transfer them to anywhere in the computer. Another method is to remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into a computer that has the slot for that particular card. If it doesn't, you can purchase a multiple card reader and connect it to a USB port. The computer will recognize them as external drives. Insert your card into the appropriate slot. Then do the same as I mentioned above.
