Can't upload pics to my computer

I plug my digital camera up to my computer and when I turn the camera on it says "communication error." I am trying to upload my pics to my computer but it just keeps saying that.

    I just tried them all and it says the same thing. Also, on my computer screen a box pops up saying "safely remove hardware."

    The box has a number of things to click on like "USB Mass Storage Device" , "Generic USB SD Reader USB Device" and some other things like that. It will let you click on them. There's a properties button and a stop button and when you click on properties it shows a troubleshoot button. I have tried the troubleshoot button and messed around with it but it's very complicated. Do you think I need a certain software for on my computer for my digital camera?

    Thanks but I figured it out. The problem is my usb cord. It doesn't fit properly so I have to hold it in while I upload the pics to my computer.

    When I plug my camera into my laptop, I get the message "communication error" on my camera screen. I've tried changing ports, and clicking on the camera icon itself (in the computer menu), but nothing happens. Dern. Any help would be much appreciated! Gracias.

    Ok. If you have that box on your computer, then it "sees" the camera.

    Have you tried going into My Computer and looking for your camera listed in the removeable drives section? If you see your camera there, double click on the drive and see if you can't drill down a folder or two to see your pictures. Try it and let me know.

    You need to go to My Computer. Its on your desktop or you can get to it from the start button. Thats where you need to go.



    And yes, If you cant get to it though My Computer, you may need software or a driver to get to your camera.

    I'm glad you got your problem worked out. Have fun with your camera Latasha. You may want to buy another USB cable, or maybe a hub. That would help you out alot. Come back if you have anymore problems.

When I tried to upload pictures from my camera to the computer it said "communication error" on the screen. I've used a different cord before to upload my pics. Could that be the problem? Is there a way...


Have you considered 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
