Question about Polaroid PhotoMax Fun Flash 640 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can not find out why it is that the USB connection won't work

I have a Polaroid PhotoMax Fun! Flash 640SE Digital camera. I have not used it for a long time, but I decided to load the program again onto a different computer I have now. It's a HP Pavilion 790N, with Windows XP. At first it was the software, so I went to the Polaroid website and was told to download a patch, which I did. I then had no problem with the software. When I connect the cable to the camera and then to the USB port, none of the photos would upload. What can I do to get this camera to work with my competer?

Is this camera and its software from the Win98 era? If so it is likely the software is not compatible with XP patch not with standing. Go to Start/Control Panel' Add/Remove software and remove the Polaroid software. Restart the computer. Now simply plug the camera in and go to my computer- XP will put the camera up as another drive You do not need software to upload images in XP.

Polaroid photomax se: how do I turn it on; where does the memory card go; is there an online users manual


There are four buttons on the top of the camera. Looking at the back of the camera and numbering them from left to right as 1,2,3,and 4, the on/off button is number 1. Your camera does not use a memory card...it only uses the internal memory of the camera. If you copy and paste this address into your browser, you can download a copy of the users manual. http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cache:3LhHQaK3CyAJ:www.polaroid.com/media/document/fun_640se_qs_rev1.pdf+Polaroid+PhotoMax+Fun+Flash+640SE&hl=en&gl=us&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESg4CJIWWZoVuHmHEapV5-UBM-MHOqUpM1XIBSxkbZz93C5zd39b0T1KDt48oAACUUR3kCqeOtAzSzhaCVtsvFX8_8ptdYBJBSYRmEAlvwTpsRceIpo37wX7X0uU7ba-wsBvw2lI&sig=AHIEtbRESqAXcLS7AhgXMm-CFzcRt-Abng

Using other Camera software with a Poloroid 640 Fun Flash


I have three different digital cameras. I use the scanner and camera wizard to download my pics.
The second option, if you use SD card with your camera, then you can get a USB 2.0 SD Memory Card Reader/Writer.

"No camera is connected" -- USB connection


The "No camera is connected" error message indicates a communications problem in the USB connection between the camera and the computer. Simply put, the computer cannot find the camera it is being asked to connect with. There is usually no single "most likely" reason for the conflict -- it could be a hardware issue as easily as it could be a software issue.

Can I use the Fun! Flash 640 with a USB port?


A 9-pin serial connection must be available on your computer to connect a PhotoMAX Fun! Flash 640 digital camera. This camera model does not have a USB driver, so a USB-to-serial adapter will not function properly.

Windows NT4 and Windows 2000


Windows 2000 A new camera TWAIN driver (version 0.1) compatible with Windows 2000 is now available for download. The new TWAIN driver will allow photo transfer using most image viewing or editing programs that are TWAIN compatible. NOTE: In order for the version 0.1 driver to work correctly, the PhotoMAX software must also be compatible with Windows 2000. The PhotoMAX SE software originally included with the Fun! Flash 640 is not compatible with Windows 2000. If you use your camera and computer with the original PhotoMAX SE software, contact the Polaroid Parts Department for more information about purchasing a PhotoMAX software upgrade. Windows NT4 No TWAIN driver is available for use with Windows NT4.

320 x 240 dpi Photo Transfer Problem


Certain computer hardware and software configurations conflict with PhotoMAX or PhotoImpression software. As a result, you may not be able to transfer 320 x 240 dpi photos from your Polaroid Fun! Flash 640 digital damera. This problem does not occur if you use the camera's default resolution of 640 x 480 dpi.
