    i plug in the USB cord to my computer to upload my pictures, but its doesnt work.



    HELP?!

  • Sauce-Kay Dec 28, 2007

    Mine is doing something similar. I connect the USB cord to my computer and camera and a window pops up saying my computer found a new hardware, but when I click next and do whatever to hopefully be able to transfer pictures onto my computer from the camera, a "Connection Failed" screen comes up on my camera.

    I think all I need to fix the problem is somewhere I can download the software/hardware so I can transfer pictures from my camera onto my computer. The disk that came with my camera only lets me install a photo-editor and some Adobe-chat thing. That and quicktime which is already installed.

    I don't think it should be this hard, just to transfer pictures. I mean, I actually have to SEARCH pages upon pages of google, just to find something that MIGHT help. The camera should just come with the program on a disk that lets you transfer. That's what my old Kodak was, you install the program and you're ready.

    And then in the guide of the camera in real life and online on the official website, it doesn't even say anything about transferring. It just tells you how to connect the USB cord to the camera and to the computer. That's it. That doesn't help me, at all. I know how to plug things in.

    Help?

If you are using a digital camera on Windows Vista, and have not loaded service pack 1 (available through Microsoft Update) there is a flaw in the Vista operating system that fails to load the basic USB drivers that are used by most digital cameras. In November of 2007, Microsoft released a specific patch to solve this problem, the patch can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=51F0EF25-280B-4613-A600-C61224BACD1C&displaylang=en

General Imaging finally updated their manual for the A730 which includes more detailed information on USB connections (among other things)

I contacted customer service with respect to a problem I was having transferring pictures via USB. 3 days later they wrote back with an answer that was so stupid I swear they couldn't have read my original question.

I told them that in my reply and never heard from them again. They better get their act together cause bad news travels at eight times the speed of good news and if they're going to offer lousy support, they're not going to be in the digital camera business for long, no matter how good (or in this case bad) their products are.

Here's the link to the latest manual, you may also want to check out their "firmware update" instructions. Good luck

Need a driver for windows 8


You don't need a driver.

The best way to download videos and 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 videos and pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files.

What make and model camera?

If it uses a memory card of some type then you don't need a driver. 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).

Trouble downloading Pictures


this was found on another solution from ncmerc on Fixya
1) Connect the camera with the provided USB cable.
2) Download the latest driver from the Digital Blue web site: http://digiblue.com/customer-service/downloads/index.html, select the "The Disney Pix Micro Drivers for WIN ME, 2000, XP"
3) Install this driver, this will not enable the camera to work yet.
4) After this driver has installed, go to Control Panel
5) Select System
6) Select the Hardware tab
7) Select Device Manager
8) Find the device in the list (mine said "USB Digital Still Camera"),will probably have the yellow exclamation mark on it saying that it isnot working.
9) Double click the device
10) Select "Reinstall Driver" from the General tab
11) When asked if Windows can connect to Windows Update to search for software, select "Yes, this time only" and click Next.
12) Choose "Install the software automatically" and click Next.
13) You should get a message saying the driver for the "DB CIF Cam" hasnot passed the Windows Logo testing, select "Continue Anyway".
14) Click Finish.
15) The first time I did this, I needed to take a picture while the camera was connected to the PC.

After doing this I am able to download the pictures and everything works great. I hope this helps.
