It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following post, as it outlines a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos:

I have had this problem with Canon cameras, it seems to be a bug in their software. What make and model is your camera?

My solution was to manually open the camera transfer software, and manually select all images for download (rather than using "download all").

Another option is to put the memory card into a card reader and copy the files across as if you were copying them off a USB memory stick. You might have to rotate the pictures manually if you do this and use the camera in portrait format, however. Using a card reader will avoid running your camera batteries down, and will speed up downloads to boot!

The camera will need to be plugged in and turned on for you to be able to transfer pictures from it.
Plugging the camera in will not make anything special happen on its own-- if you are using Windows (after the camera is plugged in, turned on, and with your memory card still in the camera), try opening "My Computer" and looking for the camera's icon within that window. The camera (and the photos on the memory card inside) will be shown just as any other CD or jump drive that you would plug into your computer. You can copy photos off of the camera by double clicking the camera's icon, (probably opening the DCIM folder) and dragging and dropping the image files onto some other location on your computer.

My kodak easy share c513....it wont load to the computer when i plug it in nothing happens all i can think to do is restart the computer and i did that and it still isnt working


There was a disk that came with your camera (or should have) if you pop that into the CD drive and download the disks contents then you ought to have no problem with working the pictures from the camera to the computer easy... if not just go look on the site for your cameras download and you should be just fine!

When I plug in the M407 camera nothing happens


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.

Computer wont reconice camera when i plug it in


Well, i'm guessing it's safe to assume that you are plugging it into a USB port on your computer. Most computers will have two or more of these ports on the computer. 1st, try using a different USB port. Make sure that when you connect your camera, that it is turned off. Once connected, turn your camera on. If nothing happens, turn it of but keep the camera connected and reboot your computer. Sometimes it will automatically read what you have stored on your camera. If none of that works for you, i'll look up some places that you could find software compatable with your Canon.
Let me know!

When we plug the camera into the macintosh it wont recognize the camera


Well after a bit of trial and error, I found a somewhat consistent solution.  Here are the steps:
1.  While the camera is off, plug the USB cable into the camera (Don't plug the other end of the USB cable into the computer yet)
2.  Turn the camera on and press the mode button
3.  Navigate to the Camera icon
4.  Plug the USB cable into the computer (the camera icon will change to the USB screen)
5.  You will notice nothing happens!
6.  Unplug the USB cable from the computer
7.  The camera screen switches back to the Camera icon
8.  Plug the USB cable back into the computer and a VTech 773 icon should show up on your desktop.
9.  When your finished copying pictures to your hard drive, drag the VTech 773 icon to the trash.
I don't know why it works but it worked 9 out of 10 times for me.
Let me know if you find a simpler solution.
