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.

Kodak m1033 how do i upload pictures to computor? cannot find answer in small manual that came with the camera


Here are the steps to upload your pictures to your computer from your camera:

1. Plug in the the smaller end of the USB cable which came with the camera to the connection port of your camera which is located at the bottom.

2. Turn on the camera before plugging the other end of the cable to the USB port of your computer.
3. Upon plugging the USB cable to the computer the camera will show a selection: choose Mass Storage by pressing the menu button.

4. Wait for the computer to recognize your camera.
5. Click on My Computer on your desktop and that will bring you to the page of the Hard Drives. That window should show a new drive labeled as E./ or F./
6. Double click on that letter and that will bring you to your cameras storage which contains the pictures saved.
7. Just select the pictures and drag and drop it to a specific folder you want on your computer.

Hope that helps. Thanks.

Hi,


Please follow the steps below for connecting the Camera to the Computer for transferring the images.

Turn the Camera ON.

Turn the Computer ON.

Make sure to Insert the Memory Stick in the Camera.

Set the USB CONNECT option in the Setup 2 Menu of the Camera to PTP. [Set the Mode dial of the Camera to Camera, press the Menu button, select SETUP-->SETUP2-->USB CONNECT-->PTP-->OK.]

Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable.

The Computer will automatically install the USB Driver for the Camera.

When the installation completes, an AutoPlay window will appear.

In the AutoPlay window, click the Import Pictures option.

In the Importing Pictures and Videos window, click the Import button.

If the USB connection from the camera is not recognized by the computer, disconnect the USB cable and repeat changing the USB CONNECT option to PictBridge, Mass Storage or Auto.

If the issue persists, try connecting to a different USB port on the Computer.

Try re-installing the USB Driver from the Device Manager.


Good Luck!

My iphone display nothing on screene when i start it shows only image of apple


If this will not boot at all try plugging it to your computer and see if iTunes can do a restore.

If this fails try putting your iPhone device to recovery mode by doing the following steps:

  1. Plug your USB cable into your computer.
  2. Turn your iPhone off by holding the power button down until you see “slide to power off”. Do as instructed.
  3. Now press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to your iPhone. After iPhone is connected it should power on the device.
  4. Continue holding the Home button, you will see the Apple logo appear and then finally a “Connect to iTunes” will be displayed, now is the time to release the Home button. You will then see the following image:

You can download a manual and order a USB cable from the manufacturer's web site at http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8775

Before you buy another USB cable, consider this: 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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

Where is port to connect USB cable?


I'm sorry you're having trouble with this. I have put together a picture that shows where the mini-USB plug is supposed to be attached to the camera. I hope it helps. This picture actually shows plugging the AV cable into the receptical, but right behind it is the mini-USB port. This is where you connect the USB cable. It looks like you have to lift the flap on the corner to reveal the plugs.
