Consider 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Use a memory card with a generic USB card reader. Getting camera drivers to work is no fun.

Can't detect the usb drive, have noise


If your computer or laptop has a problem detecting a USBhard drive or a USB device, and another computer can detect it, then theproblem could be a RF interference problem. Try using an USB cable that is a shielded USB cable (ie. AnUSB cable that has a clear plastic covering and you can see a metallic weavewhich covers the wires) OR a USB cable that has a Ferrite core attached to theUSB cable (the ferrite core is a cylindrical object approximately 30mm long X15mm diameter and it is attached to the USB cable near the connector).

The external hard drive isn't being read from the computer. Sometimes, the hardware will light up and sometimes it doesn't. The computer is not able to detect the hard drive. Please advise.

Why can't my PC detect Garmin 255W when I plug it via USB?


First makre sure that the usb is working. Just plug anythign into the usb port and if it detect it we know that is working.

Now with the GPS plug the usb cable into the port you tested then plug the gps on the other end. Watch your screen (PC) and see if it detects the gps. It should say one of two things. One will be device discovered Garmin GPS (something along that line) or it may show USB storage device. You can plug it in and look under my computer for these if you missed what it said. Some versions of windows are better than others at detecting whats connected. And some hardware is better than other at detecting something on a connected usb cable.

You should also plug the cable into a differant port if you had left it connected and were getting this problem. And you should try plugging both into a differant computer if you can. Doing these can tell you if the problem is the gps, the cable the port or the computer itself. Usually just changing the port is all it takes.

Is hooked up to computer but says it not hooked op to computer will no print off computer


this could be a communication problem.

you need to make sure that the cable that you are hooking up is the one that came with the printer,also you may need to plug the cable into a different port and check if the computer detects it.

{take intensive care in case you follow these steps. }
there is an entry for USB printing support
and USB composite device in the device manager under USB devices, if you remove these entries. the computer will start detecting the plug and play device and hence will detect the printer.
