Question about Leica Digital Cameras

Lieca c lux 3 - when you want to transfer pictures from camera to pc (windows XP) Dell Dimension 2350, do you have to leave the battary and memory card in the camera? What is the fastest way to transfer pictures and the easiest - should I buy a memory card reader? Also, I just sent my battery back to B & H Photo store because it drained so quickly - have you heard of this happening - took about 5 pictures and that was it. Please send me step by step instructions as the manual was no help. Thanks

If you have a data cable you can connect the camera through data cable.
The camera will be displayed as an external disk in My computer on Windows, or as an additional hard disk in Mac file manager.

If you do not have the data cable, fastest way to proceed is buying a card reader like this one: Kingston FCR-HS219/1 19-in-1 USB Media Reader.

Give us feedback , many thanks.

You would have to have the battery in the camera. To transfer pictures . well , you have the solution yourself , the best way to transfer pictures is by buying a USB media card reader. It would do away , with you neading the camera and connecting cables to transfer pictures


Thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

It would seem that you have multiple issues. To address them:

  • battery - it may be necessary to clean the battery contacts of the camera. At times, it may need scraping the terminals/contacts to expose fresh metal. It may even be needed to slightly bend/stretch these contacts. The idea is to ensure that the camera's battery terminals/contacts exert more pressure to the battery;
  • memory card reader - would provide you with more ease of operation on memory transfer. The camera need not be operational since it is only the memory that is required;
  • camera - some versions may need proprietary software to be recognized and access. Additionally, some camera has to have power to effect transfer of images since the USB's +5 may not be sufficient (in terms of current capacity);
  • transfer - a memory card reader normally does not need additional software other than native to Windows and would simple be treated as an external storage device much like a flash drive.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Dell desktop about a year old does not recognize SD 4 GB pictures from my Leica D-Lux 3.


Your 4GB card is an SDHC card. Is your card reader compatible with SDHC cards, or only with SD cards (2GB or smaller)?

You can use a card reader to read or transfer your images from your SD memory card via the USB port. You can use the "copy & paste" or you can use the mouse to drag the images to transfer to location on your PC.

Hope it helps.

I have a Nikon Coolpix L4 camera, I wish to transfer pictures to my Dell Computer with Windows XP. Is there an easy way to do this as my Picture Project download will not transfer


PictureProject was retired years ago, replaced by Nikon Transfer and Nikon ViewNX. You can download the current versions of all (free) Nikon software, from
http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61

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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

Picture cannot be transfer to computer


What version of windows do you have? If you are using Windows XP, you just need to plug the supplied cord into the camera, and then plug the usb lead into the computer. Windows XP will automatically recognize the camera and you will be ready to unload in about 2-3 minutes the first time you plug it in. The pc will recognize the camera as a removable drive, so go into "MY COMPUTER" and look for a removable drive called "Sony". Navigate thru the first folder until you get to the picture files.
