What make and model camera? If it uses a memory card of some type, 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). 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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

SOURCE: pc cant recognize the camera on the USB port

What is the Pc doing that shows you it is not recognizing the camera?
Have you looked in My computer at your drives to see if it is showing there? For some reason mine sometimes shows up my F drive instead of my camera drive. Then you can just click on the drive and open the folder for the photos.

SOURCE: Doesnt respond to pc

Inside the camera settings is a USB 'Mode' switch. You have to switch it to the other mode. There are only two positions so just change it to the other one.

I can't describe exactly where you find the setting but dig around in the manual for anything USB related and you'll find it.

Cant find my disc 2 download pics


Windows XP or later normally finds devices plugged into the usb port, cameras are often recognised as a
USB Mass Storage Device or sometimes as an extra hard drive.

Try connecting you camera to your PC, click on "My Computer" and see if a new drive has popped up. This is probably it, just click on the drive.

If that doesn't work, go the camera manufacturers website, look for and click on the "Support" option then Downloads. With luck you should be able to navigate your way the to drivers you require and then download and install them.
