Re: Software not being recognized

The software on the CD is slightly outdated. Here is the driver download page for your camera: You probably don't need the drivers, but they're there if you do need them. What you do need is "ZoomBrowser EX5.8b Updater for Windows" Although it says it's an updater, you can use it even if you aren't updating anything. This includes CameraWindow, and all the software that would be on your CD.

It will open up the window which will show the pictures and from there, follow the steps to download them.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FIxYa.

Computer doesn't recognize camera

Remove previous all installation/ file if any. Insert the Driver CD in the CD ROM again a wizard interface would be active, from that wizard complete the installation by clicking Next - Next. Do not plug the camera before fresh installation complete. If wizard ask to plug your camera, then plug it.
