We made need some more information on this but I'll give you some tips as to what could be happening:
Firstly, digital cameras are a 'high-load' device for batteries. If you compare devices, at the bottom of the list you'd have things like clocks and radios, extremely low-load device that need little power to run. Then you have things like torches and portable CD players and mechanical/robotic toys which have a medium drain on batteries. Then there's digital cameras and flashes and remote control cars that have a high power demand.
Although rechargable batteries supply 1.2v which is easily measured, it's the rate that that 1.2v can be constantly supplied to the device that rates the batteries power capacity, and it's this power that is hard to measure.
Rechargable batteries, especially NiMh type, have a limited amount of charges. Doesn't matter if the battery is flat or not, if you charge it, it's deteriorating. At the end of the batteries life you may charge it and it may have a full 1.2v, but no power to back that up.
Next time you're in the shops, look at the different types of rechargable batteries and notice either on the packaging or the battery they rate the power of the batteries in mAh (milli amp hours) - the higher the better, and the dearer.
OK, "IF" you're using rechargables, that may cover that.
If you're not, well, first up put some 'Alkaline' batteries in the camera and try that. Do not use el-cheapos like Eveready Red or Blacks (the 'Energizers' are good, as are Duracell). The key is, look for the 'Alkaline' label when getting disposable batteries for high-load equipment.
Please let us know if this does not solve your problem so we can investigate further.

Hp photosmart e317 digital camera downloads for windows 7 operating systems


You don't need any special software.
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 Windows Photo Gallery or any other photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Where is memory card inserted in E317 camera?


Open the battery door. There's a small slot behind the battery that is for the memory card. The notch end of the memory card should go in first when inserting it. See the image below

How do i download camera pictures to my computer photosmart e317


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards
Andrea
