    Hello Rob. Yes of course I have installed the software which came with camera. I think I have got a driver installed because I can download pictures to my laptop from my friends camera.

    Thank you in advance

    Hello Rob,

    Unfortunately there is no camera shown in the list of removable drives.

    When I plug camera in it does sound, but does not show that camera is accepted by the laptop.. Have tried everything..

    Thank you in advance

    Hi there. Welcome to FixYa.

    Have you installed the software that came on the disk when you purchased it?

    Do you have the driver installed?

Ok, let's see if your pc sees the camera. Plug in your camera and then turn it on. Can you go to My Computer and find your camera in the list of removeable drives? If so, double click on the drive and drill down through any folders. Can you find pics on the camera?

    Ok, Lina. We're not done yet. Let's do one more thing. Make sure your camera is off and plug it in to your laptop again and turn it on. Now...I want you to wiggle the end that plugs in to the computer. Don't wiggle it fast...we're trying to see if you have a bad cable, or a bad USB port. Wiggle slow and see if you can't find a place where your computer can suddenly can see it. Keep your eyes on your computer when you do it, so you can tell. Don't give up on me yet!

When downloading action videos to the computer, only audio and no picture. Blank screen on download, but you can hear the audio portion. Exchanged first camera thinking it was the camera. Still same...

The best way, removing the memory card from the camera andplugging it into a card reader. (Either you connected via USB or FireWire andwon't run down your camera's batteries.) It will be faster than connecting thecamera to the computer. Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to yourcomputer as a removable drive. Now you can get copy paste facility. You can easilycopy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Let me know if you need more information Thanks

The photos off my Optio S7 are not downloading onto my laptop. I have plugged in the cable from the camera to the laptop but nothing is happening.

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.

Downloading from camera...window

You probably can't. The best solution is to get a separate card reader and download to a folder you create on your desktop.

Downloading pictures to computer

Did you disable the autorun on your computer? Is operating system detecting the cam/card as removable disk? Which program is downloading the pictures? (Check the program options)

Camera does not respond when turned on or when plugged in to recharge.

I followed the advice of my Fixya adviser--remove the battery for 3 minutes then plug the USB cable into a different port on my computer and plus in the camera. I did that and turned the camera on as advised but the green light still did not blink. The adviser did not respond when I asked what to do next so I disconnected the camera from the computer and plugged it into the charger. This time the first blue light started blinking (nothing happened when I tried it before following the Fixya advice). I left the camera to charge all night and eventually, after about 12 hours, it did.
Seems O.K. now.
