Question about Digital Cameras

I want to get my digital camera hooked up my computer, but can't

Okay, so I got this rather simple looking "Magnavox" digital camera recently. When I try to hook it up to my laptop, the computer makes a sort of 'da-dunk' sound, then doesn't act as if the camera is hooked to it.

What I would like to know is how to get it hooked up.

You first have to install the program that comes with it. Then using the usb cord just connect and view and print all the pictures and video you want.

How to easily download Pictures from Digital Camera


Many people are having trouble downloading the digital pictures that they take on their digital cameras to their computer. This can be a very simple procedure by doing things just a bit differently then most of the digital camera instructions tell you to do it.

I seems that every digital camera manufacturer wants you to download your pictures by hooking the digital camera to the computer through some type of a wire. While this will work for many cases, the digital camera then also causes your computer to download or have you install other drivers that can be unstable and load your computer up with more stuff, that just causes it to run slower. There is a very simple way to avoid all of the problems and very easily download your pictures.

The first thing that you need to do is to find out what type of media card your camera saves the digital images on. Some cameras use a media card or stick that is brand specific, but many digital cameras are now using a simple SD Card to store the pictures on. No matter what form your camera uses there are card readers that can read the card without it being in the digital camera. By removing this card and installing it directly into a card reader in your computer you can easily access the pictures without all of the other problems.

Many newer computers are installing a number of different card readers directly into the computer. If you have the correct reader installed in your computer already then just insert the card into the reader and then if the card does not show up, just look for it in your start menu under "computer". It will be visible under the "removable storage" devices in the menu.

If you do not have a card reader installed in your computer, you are still okay. You can purchase a card reader for your specific card easily. They are readily available and do not cost very much. I use an SD Card reader that looks like this.

I also use a separate USB Adapter so that I can plug many USB devices into my computer even though I do not have enough USB Ports in my computer to handle all of them at one time. Do not worry, the computer will still recognize them all and you can still access them all easily.


Once you have the card reader plugged into your computer, then just insert the card into the USB card reader and then go to your computers start menu. Find the "computer" and click on it. Then find the card reader under "removable storage devices" and click on it. Then follow through clicking on the prompts till you start to see you pictures being loaded. You can then just delete, copy or move the pictures just as you would any other file on your computer.

One last thing to remember. If you are having trouble accessing the digital pictures or removing them from the card, make sure that the card is not "locked". If you look closely at this picture, you can see the word "lock" and an arrow. If the little tab on the side of the card gets pushed towards the "lock" position you will not be able to do anything with the digital pictures on the card. Move the tab to the forward position "unlocked" and you will be able to do what you want to do.

This will give you an easier way to download your digital pictures without all of the problems that the camera drivers will give you. You will eliminate many potential problem spots by doing it this way and it will work just as well for you!

How do I hook up my Olympus8000 digital camera to my computer? I am having trouble finding the correct port to hook it in the camera? Please help me


You need a USB port on your computer. You don't say what computer you have, but most recent Windows PCs have USB ports. Some Macs may not have this port.

The USB lead for you camera should have come with the camera. The socket on the camera is a miniature version, and wont take a standard size USB plug. If you don't have this cable you can find one on Amazon by searching for "Olympus 8000 USB".

Using a USB lead, you shouldn't need a driver or other software. The computer can recognise the camera memory as a removable drive without actually recognising the camera as a camera. Try looking in "My Computer" for an extra drive (Under "Devices with Removable Storage") and opening that. There should be directories with picture files in them that you can drag to your desktop.

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. You can't get the pics from the camera's internal memory that way though.

WHEN I HOOK MY CAMERA TO MY COMPUTER AND TURN THE POWER BOTTON ON TO THE CAMERA MY COMPUTER "SHUTS DOWN AND WILL NOT RESTART TILL I TURN THE CAMERA OFF. PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO DO PLEASE MAKE IT SIMPLE...


First of all, stop hooking the camera to the computer to download pics. That's not the best way and obviously, your computer doesn't like it. Get a separate card reader and use it instead of your camera. This one is only $13 at Walmart. 46e433f.jpg

My camera won't connect to my computer


This can be caused by several things. First plug up another USB device to that port. if it works you know your port is good. next hook up the camera and look in my computer for a extra drive letter. if you see on that is your camera. If nothing still see if you can hook it up to another persons computer to see if your cable and camera is ok. If the camera does work and none of these help out then it is a drivers issue. you will need to go into saft mode by hitting f8 when the pc first starts up goto option 3 safe mode now right click on my computer Icon and goto properties. Find device manager. in their click on hardware now find the USD devices and try to remove all of the usb listings once you have done that reboot the system the system will come up in normal mode. And start loading all of your usb devices again. Now hook up the camera and see if it works. If that does not work then in XP goto the system tools are in you accessories area. and choose system restore. choose the date closest to the last time it worked. Once you restore the system then hook up the camera again. This should work as long as all hardware is good.

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:
