Your PC is seeing your camera memory as USB mass storage and this is OK. Nothing is wrong with this. Follow the screens and you will see that the computer will see your camera as USB mass storage, and when you open the folder on your computer the camera pictures will be there.
Windows is set up to see cameras as USB mass storage devices for simplicity, so your computer can accept pictures from any camera that connects by USB without needing special software.
If this bothers you, most cameras are sold with their own special software that starts when the camera is connected. Check your users manual and follow the instructions for installing or downloading the software.
If you camera is not detected when connected to your computers USB port what you can try here first is to connect the camera on a different USB port and make sure the connections and usb cable is fine, and if your computer is a desktop you can try connecting the the camera on the back USB port of your computer and see if that will be fine.
But if still not working I will suggest you try connecting the camera on different computer and also if possible use a different USB cable and reinstall the camera software if you have the setup disc for it.
It's probably because Picasa 3 is not your default import program for photos. You can fix this by:
In Windows XP, your default import setting must be adjusted on a device by device basis: * Connect the import device (your camera or card reader) to your computer. * Double-click My Computer on your computer desktop. * Right-click the listing of your import device. * Select Properties. * Click the Autoplay tab. * Select 'Pictures' from the content drop-down menu. * Choose from two possible actions: * Select an action to perform: Select an application to handle import by default each time photos are detected on the specific piece of hardware. * Prompt me each time to choose an action: Choose an import application each time you attach your hardware. * Click Apply. * Click OK.
Windows Vista allows you to set a global import preference for all photo or videos files. * Click Start > Control Panel. * Select Autoplay. * Under 'Picture' or 'Video,' select your default import program. * Click Save.
Make sure you have installed the software/drivers for the polaroid i633. Many cameras require you have software installed on the computer hard drive in order to detect that camera. If you do not have the software/cd, then you should be able to find all you need at the polaroid website.
Many other cameras of recent times do not need special software, and will see the camera storage as a hard drive.
In XP SP2 you should have just plugged in the device to a USB port and XP probably would have picked it up and recognized it as a drive and all would be as simple as you probably expected. I as a rule don't use the third party software provided with USB devices because of issues as you are experiencing. It could be that the Imagemixer 3 software was for pre XP SP2 Operating Systems and XP is conflicting. The fix could be as simple as using a third party uninstaller such as Your Uninstaller 2006, or 2008 to completely uninstall the Imagemixer S/W and letting XP detect and configure your device as posted above. I hope this helps, and Good Luck.
the computer might not automatically upload the file. it will detect the hardware, but not necessarily start uploading. if you have xp, try going into movie maker which is in your program list in the start menu. on the left hand side there is a few blue sentences, one is import video, another is import video from device. if you have your camera connected to the computer through firewire and have your camera on the vcr/playback mode, open movie maker and click import video from device, the computer will have already detected your camera, so the first option your given in the next screen should have the make and model of your camera to upload from.
