Downloading pictures from Polaroid t831 camera

When I plug my camera (Polaroid t831) into USB cord (with it being plugged into the computer) and turn on the camera, I do not get a blue screen with options, to select "PC" (I did the very 1st time but haven't since then). How do I download pictures?

    Thanks for your suggestion.



    The computer is not reconizing the USB at all. It does recognize other things (flash drive & another camera) when plugged into that port though. I'm stumped.

    when i plug my t831 into the USB port, my computer doesn't recognize the device. I tried some of the devmgmt.msc stuff, but with no results. I heard something about downloading a driver so my computer can handle this. and when the device is plugged into the computer and I use the device itself, the computer restarts.

Try this option, if it does not work, let me know and I will suggest something else!

Plug the camera in along with the usb into the computer and if nothing pops up, go to start, run and browse for your camera. It should show up there.

    go to My Computer, Right Click on it and Select Manage, go to Device
    Manager, Scroll down, if there are any hardware with yellow question
    marks you must update the drivers. If that is not the case, it must be
    a wiring issue.

Where do i buy a usb cable,for downloading pictures?polaroid t831 digital camera,are they available at wal-mart,radio shack,......where?


Consider NOT using a USB connection.

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. Even if you have to buy a card reader, it won't be any more expensive than a USB cable.

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.

I am looking for a usb cord to plug into my computer and download my pics. where can i order one?


You can't order for just usb cord on net because it comes alongwith charger and battery. The best way to buy it would be go to your nearest computer shop take the camera alongwith you and ask them for the usb cord. They will check the connector type and will provide you the cord. Don't forget to check the serviceability before leaving the shop.

The usb cable is to put the pictures on your computer. Hope this helps you..

Downloading pictures to my computer


I don't use software or anything like that. Here is what I do:
1- Plug camera into USB cord (with it being plugged into your computer)
2- Turn on your camera, a blue screen will appear with options, select "PC"
3- Open your "My Computer" folder, you should now see a new drive, I have 2 hard drives so my camera is usually under "H://"
4- Select your picture(s) and drag and drop them into a folder or wherever it is you wish to store your pics. It will not remove them from your camera or memory card, it will simply copy them.
5- Power off your camera and remove the USB cord.

Simple as that! :) Again, that is just how I do it! I use Ulead PhotoImpact to edit my pics and such. Hope that helps!
