PC doesn't recognise camera

When I connect my camera to my PC there are no files to copy even though I have pictures on my camera, it's like to computer does not recognise them. I have only had this problem for the last few weeks. Before that my camera was working perfectly, so I don't think it's anything to do with the software??

Click on the start button, then right click on my computer and select manage. In the computer management panel that opens click on Disk management.
In the right hand window find the drive that is labeled as a removable drive, probably disk 2 or 3 depending on how many hard drives you have on your PC and whether you have other componants attached( card readers etc.) Right click the removable drive and select explore.

A new window opens, double click DCIM, then double click 101_PANA. There are your pictures. select them all (ctrl A) and right click then copy (or ctrl C). you can now paste the images into whichever folder you wish to use. just open the folder where you store your photos and click edit and then paste ( or ctrl V).

This doesn't solve your problem of Xp not opening the camera and scanner transfer wizard (I am having the same problem) but will allow you to transfer your photos to your computer.

My pc wont recognise my camers


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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.
