I need to download my pictures from my camera into my computer please help me thank you

There are two possible ways to go about transferring your photos from a digital camera onto your computer. Please note that the given solutions both assume you are running Microsoft Windows XP or newer as the steps may be slightly different on a Macintosh or earlier versions of Windows.

Option 1: USB Transfer Cable. Most digital cameras come packaged with a cable that has a standard USB jack on one end, and a smaller plug on the other end. Locate the appropriate hole on your camera that the smaller plug (Micro-usb) will fit into. There is a decent chance this hole will be covered by a silicone or rubber flap, so that should help you find it. Plug the full size USB plug into your computer and a pop-up should appear on your screen asking you what you want to do with the new storage device. Scroll to the last option "Open a folder to view the files" and double-click. From there, simply copy and paste photos to the desired directory on your computer.
Please note: If you do not receive the pop-up, simply navigate to My Computer, and look for a device that is not your hard drive (Typically C:\) or your CD\DVD drive (Typically D:\) and double click to open it up. The pictures should be located in a folder named DCIM, but it varies by manufacturer so you may have to check a few folders to find them.

Option 2: Memory Card Reader. Alternatively, if your computer has a memory card reader you can simply remove the memory card from the camera and plug it into an appropriate slot in the card reader. Most memory cards are located right next to the battery storage on modern cameras. Pictures of typical card readers for a desktop (fig. 1) and laptop (fig. 2) are provided below. Once the memory card has been inserted, you should see a pop-up asking what you want to do with the new storage device. Scroll to the last option "Open a folder to view the files" and double-click. From there, simply copy and paste photos to the desired directory on your computer.

I'm trying to sync an apple ipod shuffle 4th generation to my windows xp pc. The famous USB device not recognized thing pops up. What do i need to do so i can use and sync my ipod.

Shutdown Windows.
Turn the computer off.
Unplug the AC power cord.
Reconnect the AC power cord.
Restart the PC.
This will eliminate many "intermittent" problems.

Now, connect some other USB device (mouse? keyboard? memory-stick?) into the USB port, to confirm that the USB port is working, at least for some USB device.

Now, connect the iPod to one of the USB ports.
If it is not recognized, connect the iPod to a different USB port.

This should work.

I put the disc in the drive follow the instructions then when it asks to plug the USB port in a few secounds after it says "inatallation unsuccessfully please help

Hello benlaverick
Do not plug the usb port before finishing full installation of the device .
The best way to get your device running is to delete the software ( if installed , check in Control Panel \ Programs ) , disconnect usb port ,reboot , install software / driver and reconnect usb port .
You should get a confirmation message of successfull installation and the device should run .
Make sure you have installed a compatible driver with your OS .
Best regards

Code popped up 3151-0000-3080-0506-8007-2EE2 what does this mean...trying to down load game

This is a rare X-Box related error that pops up when there was a system issue with an update. The easiest way to resolve this matter is with a flash USB drive; I'm hoping you have one.

Note The USB flash drive must use the FAT32 file system.
  1. Plug your USB flash drive into a USB port on your computer.
  2. Download the update file from
  3. Click Save to save the console update .zip file on your computer.
  4. Unzip the file. If you are using Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7, double-click the .zip file to unzip it.
  5. Copy the contents of the .zip file to the root directory of your flash drive.
  6. Unplug the USB flash drive from your computer.
  7. Plug the flash drive into a USB port on your Xbox 360 console.
  8. Restart the console.
  9. When the console restarts, the installation program starts automatically. Select Yes when you are prompted to update the new console software.
Best of luck...

My PC shows that my printer is offline when it is not, and the option to "scan to image" is no longer on the scan menu on the device.

This means that the computer cannot communicate with the printer. Try a new data cable and plugging the unit into a different port (USB). Make sure the port works with a known working device.

USB ports can be disabled for security and power savings. Legacy ports (parallel or serial) are not always enabled on the few boards that have them.

If you use a print server or USB hub, try a direct connection.

I hope this helps.

It seems when I have my logitech videocamera plugged into one of the USB ports on my computer, the other USB ports won't function ('USB Device Not Recognized' pops up). Even when the camera is not in use,...

Some PCs have USB ports at the back that are shared with the ones on the front. What that means is that if you have six ports total, you effectively only have 4 functional ones that can be used at the same time. Trying to use one at the back of the case will not work if its twin is already in use at the front, and vice versa.
Good luck!

Pop ups asking for email passwords in Outlook 2003

It's like they told you, its a Microsoft issue, sort of.

The application has a corrupt registry key, reinstalling the application, the MS outlook 2003 will 'magically' fix the problem.

The only other thing that makes that window pop up, besides the obvious, which is you reset your password, is when you are trying to cross a domain. And if you asking in your head, what is that, then you probably not doing it. It doesnt happen by accident.

Just re-install the software, takes 5 minutes, and brings years of relief...hehe

oh, to test my theory, set up outlook express with the same settings you have in your outlook 2003. You probalby have outlook express already installed on your computer, just click on start, all programs, outlook express, if you dont see it, its a free download,

just go to and type in download outlook express and install it, then open it, click on tools up at the top, then accts, then mail tab, then add

type in the info its asking for , like your pop servers name, and the smtp server

the default ports are 110 for incoming, and 25 for outgoing

Device will work faster on USB 2.0 pop-up message occurs when USB Device is plugged in

That means that the USB drive that you have on your computer is either on the USB 1.1 driver and you have to update it or your computers USB is not capable of USB 2.0 speed. First thing you need to do is find out the model number and brand of your motherboard. Then go to the manufacturers website then look at the manual for the board to find out if you have USB 1.1 or USB 2.0. If you have USB 2.0 then download the latest drivers for your board. If you only have USB 1.1 then your only options is to buy a USB 2.0 to PCI card that will give you USB 2.0 or just stay with the USB 1.1
