It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But as a solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos to your computer. They're very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, plug the reader into the USB port, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For this simplicity, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of heartache. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. Some of the most inexpensive ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card):

For international readers, and those in the US, here's another source for card readers (free international shipping too :-). I got the $1.95 model SKU7230, and it works great. Note the free shipping can take up to three weeks though:

Memory car is full--not sure what to do..can you help


your memory card is full you need to copy the data to a computer then delet them from the memory card of your camera. to do that you need to plug the camera via usb cable that cam with the kit when you bought the cam, usualy one side of the cable(smal side) in the camera and the other side(big side) in the computer usb port. you may need to install special drivers for the camera to be identified by your computer, use the disk that cam with the kit.
alterativly, if you have a memory card reader, you can take out the flash car from the cam (consult the cams manual in the kit) and plug it in the card reader, the the card reader in the computer. this way is easier because you dont need to install drivers! and the copy the files to the computer..
gd luck

Tip

When installing a Web-Cam make sure your old cam has been uninsulated.


When you set up a new Web-Cam for your computer go under to the computers Start up Key, click the "Computer" button, and you will see a option to pick from. Click "Control Panel" and a list of installed programs, and accessories installed in your computers memory will come up. Find your old Web-Cam under the installed "Device Manager" icon.
Uninstall your old cam, and make sure the New one IS NOT plugged in at this point. After you uninstall the old one, you can then PLUG in the new cam, go back to "Device Manager" and click on "View Hardware and Devices" and your computer should recognize you have new hardware plugged into one of your USB ports, and a balloon should pop up, and Click that ballon, your computer SHOULD read and install the Cam, if not use your "Device Manager" and IF a disk came with your Cam, put it into your computer at this point if you already havent. Your PC should recognize what you are tring to do, and install the Cam. Hope this helps, if not type Web Cam into the search engine in your computers search tab, while under the Device Manager, and it will tell you step by step on how to do lots of things.

Want to use my camera as a web cam


It is actually impossible to use a digital camera as a web cam. Being that you can not use the camera when it's connected to your computer. When you connect your camera to your computer, your computer only sees it as a storage device. Like a hard drive or flash. What you can do, is make a video on your camera, connect it to your computer, then send it to who you'd like.
