Try 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.

    That would be my alternative decision but the memory card doesn't fit in to the card reader. I have lenovo laptop.

    Then get a card reader for the Memory Stick and attach it to the USB port.

SOURCE: Blank Screen and faulty shutter blades

I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.

SOURCE: Images can be viewed on camera but not on PC after downloaded.

Memory stick sounds bad in this problem, try another memory stick and Initialize (reset) camera through option in home/ menu.
Hope this will solve problem.

SOURCE: My Sony DSC S40 Digital Camera is giving problem.

When you disconnect from the computer, do you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your screen or do you just yank out the cord? When you yank, most of the time you will corrupt the card and even the camera. You can try to download your pics from the card using a separate card reader or take it to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk and print your pics or even make a cd of them. Then, Check your owner's manual to learn how to reset the camera. After that, format the card in the camera.

Plug it to a computer and open its files(explore) look for the file where your photos were stored and move them to your laptop/computer or flash drive from there you can send it.

Connect JVC GR-D240ek to vista laptop


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A firewire to USB will not work. It has to be firewire to firewire. A JVC GR-D240ek uses 4-pin, IEEE 1394 compliant Digital Video Connector [DV OUT] to connect a 1394 cable (also known as a FireWire or i.Link cable) to a laptop equipped with an equivalent IEEE 1394 port. Please note that some laptops firewire port could either be 4 pins or 6 pins.

Soon as that connection as shown above is established, you can use Windows Import Video to capture / download the videos.

Other notes (from the same Windows Help link above) :
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Movie Maker. After you connect ... your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Movie Maker, turn on your DV camera, put it into playback mode, and Windows Import Video should open automatically.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Photo Gallery. After you connect ...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from Camera or Scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Live Photo Gallery. (This options requires you to install Windows Live on your computer.) After you connect your...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Live Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from a camera or scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
Verify that the laptop's firewire port is 100% up to specs and totally compliant to IEEE 1394.

God luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Accidently deleted pics om my kodak m350,is there any way to restore ,not sure how happened!i


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software called asoftech photo recovery
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

Sir I tried to copy the pictures from camera to my PC but its not opening n show no folder in side the camera but when i take out the connection from PC it automatically showing the pics in cam.Will you...


Hi, the photos are visible in the Camera and not when connected to camera because in Windows the photos are hidden. You can view the hidden files by following below mentioned steps:

Please connect the Camera to the Computer, then open the Folder containing the Photos:

Click on Tools>Folder Options>View tab>select Show Hidden Files, Folders and Drives option.

Then, click OK. Now the photos should be visible in Windows.

Please reply me if you face any problem in following the above mentioned steps.

If your laptop has a video or hdmi input or whatever your camera supports on it's video output then you can, otherwise you may need to get a pcmcia adapter for your laptop that will allow you to view what the camera sees before you take a photo. Happy snapping.

CANT VIEW PHOTOS ON MY PC


TURN OFF CAMERA. TURN ON PC. CONNECT USB TO CAMERA AND THEN PC. TURN ON CAMERA. PC SHOULD ALERT THAT NEW HARDWARE BEING INSTALLED (D-60). WAIT UNTIL COMPLETE. GO TO "MY COMPUTER" CLICK ON D-60 THAT SHOULD REGISTER AS A DRIVE. OPEN FILE OF D-60. CLICK UNTIL PHOTOS APPEAR. COPY PHOTOS TO NEW FILE IN "MY DOCUMENTS /MY PICTURES" CLICK ON PHOTOS. WINDOWS SHOULD SHOW YOUR PHOTOS. OK?

Downloading Photos


Remove the Olympus software.
Let Windows find them with the Camera/Scanner Wizard.
It is likely the laptop has not the memory resources to receive all the photos in one hit so try in batches of 10 or so.
