I can't download pics to computer. I connect the camera, turn it on, pics come up, select pics, click download and nothing happens. Zoombrowser used to come up and with new computer, it doesn't...

Two possible solutions: 1. After the pictures come up, right-click on one of them and select "open with" and choose Zoombrowser from the list. 2. Use a card reader. Create a folder on your desktop and when the pictures show up after connecting the card reader, simply select all (highlight them) and drag and drop to the folder. From there, you can import them to Zoombrowser. typrice_188.jpg

Shows same pictures and can't import on laptop

Do you mean the computer won't download your pics because it thinks the pics already exist? You know that they're different pics but they have the same numbers as the ones already on your computer. Is that your situation? Obviously, your camera is starting the number sequence over each time it starts a new folder. Some cameras have a way to change that behavior in the setup menu...some don't. Try downloading your pics to a separate folder you create on your desktop. Then, open the folder and rename the duplicate pictures with names or extra numbers or letters to make them appear different to your computer.

Can't download pics from sd to camera

Goto any radio shack and get a external memory card reader this will allow you to get your pictures if the camera or cable is defective.

Will not download pictures

Hi you need to Import to "My Pictures" Folder if you can see that option. As soon as you plug in the USB plug from your Camera to the Computer it should make a sound and and Import menu should pop up. It will ask what you want to do with the images. You will select Import to my Computer, If it gives you an option to save to "MY PICTURES" Select that option. If not just Import to your Computer and then Later go to "Pictures" in Windows and select RECENTLY CHANGED option. This will pull up the Pictures you JUST PUT ON THE COMPUTER. Hope this helps

I know how to put pics from camera to computer. But if I havr 700 pictures how can I choose two or three pictures without having to sift through all those picturee?

This is my best solution for your problem. Why don't you take all the pictures off the camera and put them on your computer once. If you use a program like Picasa (free from google) You can set the program to exclude pictures you have already downloaded to your pc, so it will only import the newer pictures you have taken. Excludes older ones that have already been imported to your PC.


You could format your Camera card once you have all the pictures on your computer and then whenever you take new pictures, just hook it up to the PC and dump them to the hard drive in another folder.

Keep it simple.

I have a Nikon Coolpix P2 camera that I love. I used to have Picasa 2 software loaded and it automatically detected when I attached the camera to a USB port. I've accidently upgraded to Picasa 3, and that...

It's probably because Picasa 3 is not your default import program for photos. You can fix this by:

In Windows XP, your default import setting must be adjusted on a device by device basis:
* Connect the import device (your camera or card reader) to your computer.
* Double-click My Computer on your computer desktop.
* Right-click the listing of your import device.
* Select Properties.
* Click the Autoplay tab.
* Select 'Pictures' from the content drop-down menu.
* Choose from two possible actions:
* Select an action to perform: Select an application to handle import by default each time photos are detected on the specific piece of hardware.
* Prompt me each time to choose an action: Choose an import application each time you attach your hardware.
* Click Apply.
* Click OK.

Windows Vista

Windows Vista allows you to set a global import preference for all photo or videos files.
* Click Start > Control Panel.
* Select Autoplay.
* Under 'Picture' or 'Video,' select your default import program.
* Click Save.

My XT will not connect to Vista.

Well, that worked perfectly. Turn on your Rebel XT camera and under Menu then Tools go to Communication and set it to Print/PTP. Thank you to all you very smart people!
