    I have the same problem and I don't know what's wrong. I'm pretty certain that nothing is wrong with my memory card; I've directly downloaded pictures from my memory card to the computer and it have been fine, but I'm unable to download pictures through my camera. Perhaps the setting is off?

    Help?

Try 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.

SOURCE: sd600 digital camera trouble downloading pics to computer

Hmmm... Yea sometimes the pc doesn't see the added gizmo your camera. In which case, I suggest when you connect camera to computer click on "my computer" and you should see your device listed there along with your C drive & so on. Click on the camera icon & viola, you can copy the images from there to your computer. Yea I had the same experience with PS too, well Elements in particular. And there is a setting (somewhere in Elements Browser window) to turn it off. Yea to simply download images - it doesn't require any software at all with XP. I use a card reader & rarely deal with using the camera cable to computer hook up. To use that device you'll remove the card from the camera & stick in the reader & its ALWAYS worked for me. Again you'll have to click on "my computer" to find the images there. Otherwise --- next step would be to try another usb cable.

SOURCE: Cannot transfer images from my Canon DSLR XTi to my computer

Having same issue as above - I thought it was my cable so I ordered a new one. The camera attempts to 'speak' to the pc - and then the Windows box pops up not recognising the USB installed device....I also uninstalled and reloaded the Canon software (had camera for 18 months and only started this rubbish a month back) - was about to re-laod my entire PC - thankfully I saw it was not only me.

Will send mine in for a Firmware update / service.

SOURCE: downloading images

I also was getting the same problem. After talking to Canon Troubleshooting, they told me that it could be that my computer's setting is not setup to accept pics from my camera. When I changed the settings on my computer, it exports my pics instantly! They also told me that "BUSY" flashing while hooked up to my computer, is normal. The "BUSY" flash is letting you know that your camera is hooked up to a device. Hope this helps!

Go get a card reader and transfer your images thru that. That's the only way I ever transfer my images from camera to computer. You can get one relatively inexpensive...that is...if your computer doesn't already have a card slot in it.

SOURCE: USB connection with the camera causes computer to crash.

Try using a different USB cable. The connections between cameras and computers usually are problematic. A card reader will allow you to download the pictures from the SD card, without problems and saving your camera's battery power supply

Download images to your Computer
Before connecting your ViviCam 3350 to your PC for the first time you must first install the Twain driver first.

After the driver software has been installed, your still images and movie clips can be transferred to your PC using the USB cable. You will know that the ViviCam 3350 is ready to use when two icons appear on your desktop. The “ViviCam 3350” icon is used for downloading still mages to your computer.
The “PCCam” icon is for using the live video feature of the ViviCam 3350.

Downloading pics from the camera, I want to preview whats on the camera and select some NOT ALL of the photos on the camera. When you use the Fine Pix Viewer it only gives you options to save every photo...


In FinepixViewer. Under Settings, click Operation Setting When The Camera Is Connected.
Select Show List Of images...
Click OK.
Now FinepixViewer will only show the images on the camera but will not save any. You can mark images to be saved one at the time, or multiple images if you hold down Crtl key.

Downloading pictures onto computer


There are Three primary ways to do this...

1. use a (usualy supplied) data cable... normaly a USB cable... it connects to your computer/laptop , Use a Photo utility program to "find" the camera. You should be able to view the pics stored in the camera.

2. If the camera pics are stored on a sim card then simply put that card in a multi card reader... (very inexpensive to purchase and standard on some late model PC's) and in most cases you can pull the pics directly from the card.

3. Take the camera directly to walmart or walgreen's photo station and they usualy can pull the pics directly from it.


give me some more info and I maybe able to give detailed help...

Have you checked the HP hep site?
Here is their suggestion
Introduction This document explains how to transfer images from the camera to a computer running Windows XP operating system by using a universal serial bus (USB) cable. Transferring the images Follow the steps below to transfer images from the camera to a Windows XP computer. Step one: Connect the camera to the computer
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. The camera came with a special USB cable for connecting the camera to a computer. Connect the large end of that USB cable to the computer. Figure 1: Connect the USB cable c00878070.gif
  3. Open the rubber door on the side of the camera and connect the small end of the USB cable to the USB connector on the camera.
Step two: Transfer the images Choose one of the following methods to transfer the image files: Method one: Transfer images with the HP Photosmart software
  1. Make sure the HP Photosmart software is installed on the computer. If the software is loaded, then go to step 2. If the software is not loaded, click here to upgrade to the latest version of imaging and printing software (in English).
  2. If images on the camera are selected for printing or selected for HP Instant Share destinations, make sure the computer is connected to a printer and the Internet.
  3. Turn on the camera. The HP Import Photos software starts on your computer. If you have set the software to automatically transfer the images in the camera, the images automatically transfer to the computer. Otherwise, in the Transfer images from Camera/Card screen, click Start Transfer . The images are transferred to the computer, and then if there are any still images that were previously selected for HP Instant Share destinations, those actions are started.
  4. When the Image Action Summary screen appears on the computer, you can disconnect the camera from the computer.
Method two: Transfer images without the HP Photosmart software If you do not, or cannot, install HP Photosmart Software on your computer, you can still transfer images from the camera to the computer using the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP) in Windows XP. Follow the steps below to transfer images.
  1. Turn on the camera. Windows will automatically launch a program to transfer the images.
  2. When the images have finished transferring, disconnect the camera from the computer.
  3. If you encounter problems, check that the camera USB Configuration in the Setup Menu is set to Digital Camera .
    1. While in Live View , press the Live View/Playbackc00591915.gif button, and then press the Menu/OKc00280209.gif button.
    2. Scroll to the Setup Menuc00595863.gif using the left/right arrow c00280208.gif buttons.
    3. Use the up/down arrow c00280207.gif buttons to scroll through the Setup Menu to highlight the USB option.
    4. Use the left/right arrow c00280208.gif buttons to change the setting to Digital Camera and then press the Menu/OKc00280209.gif button.
    5. To exit from the Setup Menu , press the Live View/Playbackc00591915.gif button.
  4. Reconnect the camera to the computer.
