Connecting to hp laptop

I have tried everything with connecting my camera.I was able to connect it to my desktop ( which is in storage) when camera was out of the box. It was a dell pc. I have also tried to connect it to 2 other computers to no avail. Yes I have the software disc and the correct usb connection...etc. The only thing I don't have is the AC adapter...also in storage, but I thought battery power would be fine? Please save me from several days of hell.

Re: connecting to hp laptop

Well it should connect via battery alone - not perfect but do able You do not need software disk to connect to a computer. can be distinctly unhelpful. Remove the software Simply plug in the camera and ensure it is in upload mode and on Windows Scanner/Camera Wizard does the rest.

My dsc-w310 wont connect on my computer, it says switch on usb mass storage which is on? what to do?

Sometimes it is easier to remove the memory card from your camera and connect directly using a card reader. Modern computers often have a card reader built in for the popular cards like and SD card. Sony often have 'Sony Memory Stick' cards. This would usually mean you have to purchase a card reader separately unless it is a Sony laptop. Card readers are less than 10 GBP each often only 5 GBP. Connect card reader cable to a USB port open windows explorer or my computer, create a new folder on your computer and then click and drag the photos from the card reader to the folder on your computer.

My computer does not detect my power shot A400

If you camera is not detected when connected to your computers USB port what you can try here first is to connect the camera on a different USB port and make sure the connections and usb cable is fine, and if your computer is a desktop you can try connecting the the camera on the back USB port of your computer and see if that will be fine.

But if still not working I will suggest you try connecting the camera on different computer and also if possible use a different USB cable and reinstall the camera software if you have the setup disc for it.

When I down load the hp photosmart m305v digital camera

Uninstall the camera software, reboot the computer, wait a couple of minutes after your desktop appears, then connect the USB cable with the camera connected and powered on. You should hear a wave sound indicating that the device is connected at which point you should be able to find the device in "My Computer" and treat it as any memory storage device.
I hope this helps.

Canon Not recongized by Computer

Try to change the USB connection type in the camera menu. There are several types like Mass storage, Pict. bridge, and the one you need is most likely PTP. Anyway, try all of those and maybe it will work. That is the most common problem when connecting cameras to Vista based systems.

Same problem - no driver

I found this on another site. You have to set the camera itself to Mass Storage mode in order to work with Windows 2000. The steps are below. As soon as I did and plugged the camera back into the USB cable, Picture Project recognized the camera as connected, installed the mass storage driver for it and requested a restart of the PC. Able to access the memory card and download pictures.

On the camera itself, unplug the USB, turn it on and...

Press MENU....
Press ▲▼to choose OK...
Press ▲▼to choose OK...
Press ▲▼ to choose OK...
Press ▲▼to choose MASS Ok..
Press MENU to exit...
Then plug it back into the USB cable.

Good Luck

Upload pictures to desktop

Do you have to switch the camera on manually?, as it may just be indicating that it is connected to pc. Try completely uninstalling the software and drivers. Disconnect camera and re install drivers, then try connecting to a different usb port. Check in my computer to see if the camera comes up as a storage disk.
