Re: difficulty connecting to laptop

Assuming your laptop is XP then it should recognise the camera as another drive. Have you installed the Camera software that come on a disk? If so uninstall it and let Windows do the work. The other way is to invest in a cheap USB card reader

Driver for windows 7

It is not your computer that needs drivers, it is the hardware you need to connect to the operating system that needs a driver. From Windows 7 and up, Microsoft only allows drivers, if the manufacturer asked for certification and the hardware and driver work conform Microsofts demands. If the hardware and driver is certified the driver is also on the Microsoft website. Most of the time if you use new hardware the operating system goes to Microsoft to see if there is a correct driver and then installs the driver.

For your camera, just install the Samsung software that came with the camera. And if you can't find the CD, download the software form the Samsung website, under support.

Hi i have a nikon coolpix L11 dg cam.. when i connect the camera to the comp.. i get a msg new hardware found... but later during the installation it says, drivers not found... and also i have downloaded...

If you are using Windows 7 then that itself the problem. There is a work around though. You can remove the card from the camera and plug it into the card reader slot on your laptop so that you can just copy the pics like you do from a USB drive. Atleast its a work around till the drivers are available for the camera. PS: IF your lapto does not have a card reader you can purchase one at your local computer store for about 10$

Hi there,

If you want to download the pictures on your camera, try plugging it into the usb port of your computer using the usb cable. Then turn on the camera and make sure it is set to REVIEW MODE. Usually, this opens the sofware. It not, then, on your computer, click Start button >> All Programs >> Accessories and choose Scanners and Cameras. It will open up the window which will show the pictures and from there, follow the steps to download them.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FIxYa.

Don´t download

If you have done what mugman asks, try this fix:

My daughter just received one of these camera's for her 6th birthday and is extremely excited. I am running Windows XP and was getting the "No pictures on camera" error. I tried downloading the drivers for this but that did not work. Here is what I did to get the camera working:

1) Connect the camera with the provided USB cable.
2) Download the latest driver from the Digital Blue web site:, select the "The Disney Pix Micro Drivers for WIN ME, 2000, XP"
3) Install this driver, this will not enable the camera to work yet.
4) After this driver has installed, go to Control Panel
5) Select System
6) Select the Hardware tab
7) Select Device Manager
8) Find the device in the list (mine said "USB Digital Still Camera"), will probably have the yellow exclamation mark on it saying that it is not working.
9) Double click the device
10) Select "Reinstall Driver" from the General tab
11) When asked if Windows can connect to Windows Update to search for software, select "Yes, this time only" and click Next.
12) Choose "Install the software automatically" and click Next.
13) You should get a message saying the driver for the "DB CIF Cam" has not passed the Windows Logo testing, select "Continue Anyway".
14) Click Finish.
15) The first time I did this, I needed to take a picture while the camera was connected to the PC.

Camera says its conected, program says its not

Hi, You can try booting your Win98 PC with the camera already connected to the USB. Sometimes 98 has a hardtime detecting if and when a USB device is connected to it when it is already running. By booting with it already connected, 98 at the onset sees it and boots with all the needed support files. Further, by booting with the camera already connected, you can verify if drivers are really needed since 98 will auto detect with "New Hardware Found" message. It might just be that you have to reinstall the drivers all over again. Hope this be of some help to you. Pls post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Troubleshooting Steps for Windows USB connection issues

It can sometimes be difficult to setup a digital camera on a new computer. Usually the process is simple: plug the camera in, allow the system to install the driver and begin using the system, however, sometimes things can go wrong. Following these steps can solve more than 90% of problems relating to USB connection issues. You must be thorough and follow it step-by-step. What CF Card is installed in the camera? A large number of problems are caused by incompatible CF Cards. In many cases these cards will work while shooting but can fail to properly download to the computer. You must be extra careful that the card is approved. Actually look up the card you are using in the manual to see if it on the list. Many retailers include "Unapproved" cards in their bundles, so just because a card came with the camera doesn't mean that it is "Approved". If in doubt, use the "Nikon Starter Card" for testing. Is the Camera in Mass Storage Mode? While PTP mode can be used if your camera and operating system (Mac OS X and Windows XP) supports it, for troubleshooting it may be useful to switch to MSC USB mode using the camera's setup menus. Are there images on the card that can be viewed on the camera in playback mode? Nikon View will not auto launch or give a transfer window with no images on the flash card. If you have covered the first three items you should now connect the camera to the rear USB port (not through a hub or front port) on the computer. On all Windows systems excluding Windows 98 Second Edition (SE) ("Plain" Windows 98 is not supported.) make sure the Nikon View CDROM has been removed from the system prior to connecting the camera. Does the LCD Display Screen go dark after being connected for 2 seconds? If you are not getting the "Found New Hardware" wizard then check the LCD display. If the display stays "on" and the camera seems to be in Shooting mode or Playback mode then you may have a bad cable, camera USB port or computer USB port. If this is the case, contact Nikon Support for more information or Click Here for more troubleshooting. Does "New Hardware Wizard" Start? If you connect the Camera and a "Found New Hardware" wizard comes up you should allow the system to auto search for the driver by simply clicking the "Next" button until it is finished. (Windows 98SE requires the Nikon View CD-ROM to be in the CD-drive at this point.) On Windows systems newer than Windows 98SE the camera should pick up and use the Microsoft Mass Storage driver. "Hardware Handshaking" You need to understand how hardware handshaking works. The hardware Handshake occurs when a USB device is connected to the USB port. The computer detects the USB device on the USB bus and asks: "What are you?" The Coolpix line of cameras should answer: "I am a Nikon Coolpix 5700 currently set to Mass storage mode." If the computer does not understand this message the most likely cause is an incompatibility with the USB chipset on the partic
