Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ7 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have lumix dmc-lz7. Tonight I put a 2 gig sd card into my built in card reader , Dell pc and it didn't work and did not even show the drive on computer. Then, to check it out, I connected camera to usb port and it then worked with the reader and showed the drive on the comp. Why doesnt card work alone in reader?

    Thank you for your help but I think it may be the card itself as my daughter's sd card worked in my comp fine. I think I will look it over once more and then buy the same card that my daughter uses. My Dell is 12 in 1 or 21 in 1 reader and has an sd/mini MMC/RS slot as well as several other slots so it should work???

Maybe the card reader is not SD/SD HC compatible, the same problem occurs wiith the Memory Stick Pro/Duo of sizes 2GB or above in my Desktop Computer (Compaq) and not in my Notebook (Compaq) the card reader and the machine are newest and are compatible

The first problem is explained by the error message. Your camera is consuming too much power to go through a USB hub. Try connecting it directly to a USB port on your computer, without going through a hub.

The second problem is most likely related to the card reader. You didn't specify the exact model of Belkin reader so I can't give you a definite answer, but it appears the reader is designed for SD cards. Your 4GB card is actually an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it will not work with devices not specifically designed to work with SDHC cards.

To sum up: If you want to use a USB port, connect directly to it without going through a hub. If you want to use a card reader, make sure the reader is SDHC-compatible.
If you have additional questions, or some part of the above isn't clear, please feel free to respond to this post.

My Panasonic DMC-LZ7 is not not recognized by computer when usb cable plugged in. It has always worked before and not is not.


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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I have a DMC-LZ7, with some pictures on the built in memory. Can I transfer those pictures to a memory card? The pc cable doesn't talk to the camera.


Yes. There's a "Copy" option in the playback menu. It can copy all pictures from internal memory to a card, or individual pictures from a card to internal memory.

When you say it did not work with the card reader, are you saying nothing appeared on your computer? No icon on your desktop, no Windows box offering ways to open your pics, and finally, did you open "my computer" to see if they appeared as a "removable disc"?

Transfering pictures


I have a DMC-LZ7 that I purchased a year and a half ago. You can transfer pics from the built-in memory from the "copy" menu function when the camera is in play mode (10th option down in the menu). If you move the cursor down to this selection then hit the right arrow button, there should be options to both transfer from built-in memory to the SD card and vice versa.

Camera as a gift


Do you have a SD card reader? you could get the memory card out of the camera, and put the card in your cardreader.
you could also just use the usb cable, i suppose you have windows xp or vista, it should install automatically.
the software is for old versions of windows, and other os's.
