You didn't specify the make and model of your camera so I'll assume it uses a memory card of some type.

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Unable to upload pictures to my computer. I've uploaded pictures before, so I can't imagine what is wrong. It's as if the pictures are not there.


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

I am having major trouble uploading all my pictures from my sony camera into my computer, it keeps stopping at 30 pictures and doesnt upload the rest fo the pictures?? what could be wrong


It could be an error on the 31st picture. Try accessing the camera thru My Computer and download the pictures by dragging them to a folder on the desktop. If that also fails, try skipping the 31st picture and download from 32nd onwards. When successfully downloaded, the card should be formatted in the camera.

Uploading pictures from my digital camera onto my computer


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


I cannot speculate as to what is wrong with your camera but this solution should bypass the problem and enable you to copy your pics again.


Kind Regards
Andrea
