I'm having problems downloading the images from my samsung D860. The 'Auto Download' option under the camera button/tab is greyed out. How do I un-grey this option? I'm using Windows Vista home editon.
I'm contactable at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you could help I'd be very grateful. Kind Regards Miss A Spinks
Your camera may not be compatible with Windows Vista. What I would recommend doing is getting a separate card reader, and when you want to download your photos, you have to take the memory card out of the camera and put it in the card reader. Then you can see all the photos on the card as if it were a normal folder on your computer.

In FinepixViewer. Under Settings, click Operation Setting When The Camera Is Connected.
Select Show List Of images...
Now FinepixViewer will only show the images on the camera but will not save any. You can mark images to be saved one at the time, or multiple images if you hold down Crtl key.
If the pictures look normal when viewing them on the camera but have this color distortion afer downloading them to the computer it sounds like they are getting corrupted during the transfer. Try a different USB cable if you can or try downloading them to a different computer to see if the problem persists and if the same images are displaying the same problems.
Has this been happening all the time since you got the camera?
My guess is that If the camera starts up again after powering off, it probably isn't the battery.
Can you try downloading only half of the images at a time? I'm thinking it may go into sleep mode after awhile if you're downloading a lot of photos. What format are you using, jpg? RAW? raw are really big files. What's your megapizel size?
I don't have this model of Camera, but I think you should be using the same Canon software. Try going to your PC, go to Programs and going to the Canon Utilities folder. You will see a CAMERA WINDOW folder that has another CAMERA WINDOW folder that has a CAMERA WINDOW application. This should allow you to set the way you can download images to your PC. You can tell it to have your camera have the download options and have new images downloaded by date.
The popup would be the windows wizard wanting to assist with downloading image files. There's 2 popups one is the wizard and you'll click on transfer images & it walks you step by step to download the images.
The other one is just a one click option & you can copy the images files to your computer.
But since those options don't seem to work for you - one solution would be to click on "my computer" and you'll either find your camera or memory card listed along side your computers C drive.
If you're downloading images from the camera - it needs to be hooked up via the cable + the camera probably needs to be turned on. Some cameras also have a setting or button to turn in order to download the images.
The images are still on the card I would imagine
Try these things.
1 if you are downloading via camera software as supplied on a disk
Remove the software.
2.Try then to up load - Windows will find the camera all by its self.
3. To see in the images are on the computer
Go to Start/Find/ and in the field type *.jpg
This will locate every jpeg file on the computer/and Camera no matter where they are.
4.If you have no images showing on the card
Go to www.konvar.com download PC Inspector
This l;ittle program will recover any 'lost' images on the card or on your drive,
