Re: Cannot upload pics

Vista SHOULD, but Vista does not. If you can get Vista to read the CD that came with the camers - do NOT download the driver.

I usually have to just plug in th USB cord and turn on my camera to upload my pictures, but now thats not even working. I don't have the software on my computer because the disc never works on Windows...

most times you dont need software installed in the computer.
With you camera plugged in and turned on, try to go to START / MYCOMPUTER and take a look. See if you can see there a drive which point to the camera.

- or -

try to connect the camera in a different usb port of the pc. that could also work.

Canon Rebel XTi not recognized when plugged into usb

Vista is your problem. an inexpensive card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop. From there, you can send the pics to your photo editing software.

I installed S3000 software for Windows XP on my Windows Vista. Now it won't run. I downloaded the driver fix for Vista but something is blocking the program from running - it says: Windows 4.1 has stopped...

Sounds like a compatibility problem related to Vista.
If your pics are stored on a camera card then i recommend that you purchase a card reader/writer and pop the camera card in that to transfer the pics to the computer.
They are very cheap at around $2( £1) and you can get them anywhere from places like PC World, radio shack etc.

Panasonic lumix camera fz20eb unable to upload pics to toshiba laptop with windows vista

You should be upload pictures using a USB cable even if you do not have the additional sofware. Once you plugged in your camera, it may take a few minutes for the computer to register a new device and you should be able to view pictures using the Vista popup or in my computer from the "new device"

My sanyo vpc-e760 will not upload my pictures to my computer

Does your camera have a removable memory card? (SD card, SecureDigital, CompactFlash, etc). If so, you can get a card reader at an office supply or computer store for 10 or 15 bucks that will plug into your computer's USB port. I bought one for ~$13 at office max that will read just about every digital camera memory type known to man.

Using software like Google's Picasa ( on Windows or iPhoto for Macintosh makes importing photos from memory cards this way a breeze.
