It's on the right side of the camera as viewed from the back. See the illustration on page 8 of this manual.

You might want to consider 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.

You need to download the user manual off the internet and find out, there has to be one even if it is under a small cover.

SOURCE: USB cable broke inside camera port

Buy a portable card reader. Insert in USB port. Insert your card and download. You don't need a cable then.I just bought one for $10.49 with a $6 rebate from Radio Shack.

SOURCE: pc cant recognize the camera on the USB port

What is the Pc doing that shows you it is not recognizing the camera?
Have you looked in My computer at your drives to see if it is showing there? For some reason mine sometimes shows up my F drive instead of my camera drive. Then you can just click on the drive and open the folder for the photos.

SOURCE: Samsung S85 camera , USB Error?

Check the USB port on the camera for signs of debris or corrosion. There also is a USB driver chip on the main system board that could go out, but that is pretty rare. Maybe your pet chewed on your USB cord. Double check.

SOURCE: I need a driver for Pentax *istDL2 digital camera.

Bypass the USB cable and buy a card reader.

Your camera takes an SD card so all you need is a SD card reader. You take the SD card out of the camera and stick it into the card reader and that goes into your USB on your computer.

I believe ritz camera sells them for around 15 dollars. You can get them at ANY place that sells electronics. Such as Best buy, Ritz camera, penn camera, staples, walmart, target, etc.

You really dont need the USB cable considering SLR have no built in memory.

A card reader would serve you better.

******* As far as your camera not working when hooked up to your USB, some cameras require you to install there software. This means its not a "Mass Storage" device. Think of it like an Ipod, it hooks into the USB, but you need itunes to see it.

or you can try this website for software

This is for the PENTAX PHOTO Browser 3 and PENTAX PHOTO Laboratory 3

USB Port not working, any solutions?


In looking up this TV, it doesn't show a USB port anywhere.
The manual doesn't mention it. NewEgg doesn't mention it. C/net doesn't mention it.
There's a pc audio port, VGA, 75ohm antenna, 3 HDMI and a Coaxial.
Did you mean any of these?
If there is a USB, it's probably only used for software updates.

First, try attaching the camcorder via usb cable with the camera OFF, then turning it on. This may trigger Windows to activate the driver scanner and activate the driver. If you've been attaching with camcorder off, try attaching with it on, to see if that activates driver installation.

If that doesn't work, you may have a low-power usb plug; often the usb ports in the back of the computer put out more juice than the handy ones on the front. You may also need a shorter and more robust usb cable; I've found with various cameras and phones that certain usb cables work fine for recharging but won't necessarily provide adequate data transfer.

Use a card reader. Since your computer has a USB port, you can get a card reader that reads SDHC cards. This is exactly how I do it on my computer.

Location of usb port on brother intellifax 1840c


My-oh-my...! I searched everywhere on the Brother Page to find thelocation of the USB port for you model, but there is NOTHING! Neitherin the Manual nor Setup Guide. Unbelievable!

I looked up the 1860-C and that Setup Guide at least has apicture.Look at page 11 (chapter 14) of the Setup Guide (you can get ithere).
It shows the connection port for USB. Maybe that gives you a hint.

If you want to search the outside of your fax machine, look for a USB symbol like this:

da2e484.gif

The port itself might be covered by a small plate and not visible without prying that plate (carefully) off.

Note: Brother advises not to use a USB cable longer than 6 feet.

Hope this gets you a little further!

Disney Pix Max 3.0 Megapixel Camera by Digital Blue can't download photos


If you're plugging the camera into a port on the front of your computer try one of the ports on the back. The front ports in most cases only provide 100 milli-amps of power whereas the back ports provide the full 500 milli-amps of power. This could be the problem or it could be your USB cable. Try a different cable and see if that makes a difference. Just make sure that you aren't plugging it into a USB hub and you're connecting it directly to a port in your computer.
