There is not any real need to connect your camera directly to your computer IF you just buy a simple card reader ($15 or so). with the card reader you remove the memory card from your computer and insert it into the card reader. Then connect the card reader to the USB port on your computer. I suggest downloading free software, Picasa3, from Google and use that to transfer the images.

I have connected to camera and computer with camera saying it is connected, but when I click on add pictures from camera, my computer is saying it is not properly connected.


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.

  • Use only the dedicated USB cable to connect the camera to your computer.
  • Push the plug firmly all the way into the socket. Loose connections can cause faults or malfunctions.
  • Connect the camera to the computer directly using the dedicated USB cable. Thecamera and computer may not operate correctly if you connect them via a hub or you connect to multiple USB devices.
  • The connection may not operate correctly if you are using other USB devices, excluding USB mouse or keyboards, at the same time. If this occurs, disconnect the other USB devices from the computer and try reconnecting the camera.
  • Do not connect more than one camera to the same computer. The connections may not operate correctly.
  • While the camera and your computer are communicating, the camera's LCD panel may blink and, if you are using the LCD monitor, the image on the monitor may flicker. This is not a malfunction.
  • When unplugging the dedicated USB cable, be sure to grip the sides of the plug as you pull it out.
  • If you do not perform any operation while the camera and computer are connected, a confirmation message appears on the computer screen asking whether you wish to continue communicating with the camera for some computer systems. If you do not perform any operation even after this message appears, the communication with the camera is terminated. To re-establish communication, press the shutter button down halfway or set turn off the camera then turn it back on.
  • Do not put the computer to sleep while it is connected to the camera. If you do put your computer to sleep while it is connected to the camera, never disconnect the dedicated USB cable while your computer is still in sleep mode. Always wake your computer up before disconnecting the camera. On some types of computers, disconnecting the dedicated USB cable while your computer is in sleep mode could prevent the computer from waking up correctly. Refer to the computer's User's Manual for more information on sleep mode.
  • When the camera is connected to a computer, you should use the AC Adapter KitACK-DC10 (optional) so that you can continue using the camera regardless of battery level.

Hi,

Hi !!

Please read this carefully and see if you are doing everything correctly. Also you need to connect camera to power source. And use the Original USB cable that came with camera.
Connect the camera to your computer with the dedicated USB cable so that they can communicate. You can connect the camera while your computer is running.

  • When you connect the camera to your computer, be sure to follow the procedure below.
  • Never perform the following operations while the software installed from the SOLUTION DISK is running after connecting the camera to the computer, as a communications error may occur:
    • Turn the camera OFF.
    • Open the memory card/battery slot cover.
    • Disconnect the dedicated USB cable or remove the battery.
    • Disconnect the DC coupler (optional) or unplug the AC adapter (optional) or power cord.
Before you perform the operations below, be sure to exit the software being used.

Plug the dedicated USB cable into the computer.


  • Plug the cable into the USB port on the computer.
  • The location of the port differs depending on your computer. Refer to the User's Manual for your computer for details.
Plug the dedicated USB cable into your camera.
Open the cover and plug the cable connector into the terminal and make sure it is plugged in all of the way.

Turn on the camera
(Playback mode) by switching the mode switch to
(Playback) on the back of the camera.

  • Use only the dedicated USB cable to connect the camera to your computer.
  • Push the plug firmly all the way into the socket. Loose connections can cause faults or malfunctions.
  • Connect the camera to the computer directly using the dedicated USB cable. The camera and computer may not operate correctly if you connect them via a hub or you connect to multiple USB devices.
  • The connection may not operate correctly if you are using other USB devices, excluding USB mouse or keyboards, at the same time. If this occurs, disconnect the other USB devices from the computer and try reconnecting the camera.
  • Do not connect more than one camera to the same computer. The connections may not operate correctly.
  • While the camera and your computer are communicating, the camera's LCD panel may blink and, if you are using the LCD monitor, the image on the monitor may flicker. This is not a malfunction.
  • When unplugging the dedicated USB cable, be sure to grip the sides of the plug as you pull it out.
  • If you do not perform any operation while the camera and computer are connected, a confirmation message appears on the computer screen asking whether you wish to continue communicating with the camera for some computer systems. If you do not perform any operation even after this message appears, the communication with the camera is terminated. To re-establish communication, press the shutter button down halfway or set turn off the camera then turn it back on.
  • Do not put the computer to sleep while it is connected to the camera. If you do put your computer to sleep while it is connected to the camera, never disconnect the dedicated USB cable while your computer is still in sleep mode. Always wake your computer up before disconnecting the camera. On some types of computers, disconnecting the dedicated USB cable while your computer is in sleep mode could prevent the computer from waking up correctly. Refer to the computer's User's Manual for more information on sleep mode.
  • When the camera is connected to a computer, you should use the AC Adapter Kit ACK-DC10 (optional) so that you can continue using the camera regardless of battery level.

"Camera not connected." -- Serial connection


The "Camera not connected" error message indicates a communications problem in the serial port connection between the camera and the computer. Simply put, the computer cannot find the camera it is being asked to connect with. Whenever an external device (digital camera, scanner, Palm Pilot, etc.) is connected to a computer through its serial port, a communications error is possible. There is usually no single "most likely" reason for the conflict -- it could be a hardware issue as easily as it could be a software issue.

Fortunately, the most common causes of this error message are also the most easily rectified: 1.Make sure that the camera power is on. 2.Make sure that the camera cable has not been damaged. 3.Make sure that the camera cable is properly connected to both the camera and the computer. 4.Clean out the computer's Temp file.
