First do a cold start, unplug from AC, remove battery, leave battery out for now, plug into AC, Boot normally. If that fails, and it returns to safe mode, run MSCONFIG, check the Normal Statup circle and click OK restart your machine. Respond to post for further assistance.
left click on the "safely remove hardware" icon (see attached image). Select your camera from the pop-up list (it may be listed as a drive). Wait a few seconds until computer says, "safe to remove hardware."
NOTE: if you have any applications open, e.g., photoshop, that are accessing files on your camera, the computer will indicated it can't stop the drive. Close all the applications and try again.
If that fails, shut down your pc and unplug the USB connection.
Sounds like you forgot to use the "safely remove hardware" function when you unplugged the camera.
Try this.. remove the card and battery...press every button....leave it alone for 20 minutes....insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.
I wonder about answering posts that are a year old but here goes. The Canon AE-1 Program is a solid working classic but unfortunately Canon won't repair them anymore at least not in m y country anyway. However there are many individual repair people still bringing these cameras back from retirement to full service. Check with a local camera club or cruise e-Bay I've seen auctions selling service for these cameras in the US for as little as $79.95.
To Answer your question: If the PC says it safe to remove, this means that it has completed all data transaction between Camera and PC. The Camera will remain in the USB MASS STORAGE mode until the 5v USB is removed (USB cable disconnected from PC).
I suggest you read further and perform the procedure at the end of this LONG explaination. Sorry, I would have paraphrased if possible. The short version is that you do not need to worry about "Safely Removing" the camera.
The Term "SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE" is misleading. You run no risk in losing the original data if it is already backed up from the location you are writing from. For EXAMPLE, if it is saved on the Camera and you are only copying from the Computer to the PC....there is NO RISK of losing the data on your Camera by disconnecting the USB without safely removing.
The process of "Safely Removing" the camera is necessary if your Camera is set to "Cache" data as it writes to the PC.
If you do not have the camera set to "Cache" as it writes to the PC, you Do Not need to safely disconnect as the Data has been immediately transferred and stored to the Computer Hard Drive.
Cache means that the Camera files are written to a volitile memory location on the computer before final storage to the Computers Hard Drive. If the Camera is setup to do this and you do not safely remove the Camera before disconnecting the USB, there is a potential for data Loss....on the computer side.
You may check if your Camera is set to cache using the following. These Cameras should be default "no caching"
1. right click "safely remove" ICON
2. "Safely Remove Hardware" Window Appers
3. select the JVC Camera on the "USB Mass Storage.." drop down tree
4. select [properties]
5. select "policies" tab
6a. select "optimize for quick removal" if you want to eliminate need to "Safely Remove" (BEST)
6b. Select "Optimize for Performance" (FASTER)
Trun the camera off and remove the batteries. Leave it for at least a minute before inserting the batteries. Put the car in and turn the camera on.
The firmware in these cameras can get confused. Removing the batteries for a minuite or two will allow the camera circuits to discharge and so it will reset from start when powered-up again.
If this does not work then the camera may need to be sent away for repair. This need not be expensive it could be as simple as re-programming the camera. (Their program memory is writeable and so it can be accidentally altered under certian circunstsances. It may be possible to do this yourself using the downloadable firmware upgrade, but I would let someone else try thet first!)
However, it is just possible that the new card is also faulty!
Check the cards in your PC by obtaining a SD card reader to allow you to plug it directly into your PC.
For reference I would always recommend inserting and removing memory cards with the camera turned off. I would also use the SD card reader to load the images into the PC. Unplugging devices form the USB port can be harmful to some devices. Check the bottom right of your PC screen for an 'safe unplug' icon when things are plugged in.
You should uninstall through the control panel, add/remove programs really. As you dont seem to have done that, make sure you have unplugged your camera as it may still be using the file you want to remove. There are lots of other ways of doing it but much riskier to your system. You need to try this first. If you are happy to do it you can do it in safe mode. Press F5 or F8 when booting your pc until you get the option to boot into safe mode. This loads the basic amount of drivers to get you going and will allow you to remove any extra files. Be careful you dont remove anything that may make your system unstable. Files are often used for multiple purposes.
I had the same problem. Nothing seemed to help, I even re-installed Nikon View. This helped, though. After you've connected the USB cable to both computer and camera, twist the camera end of the cable towards front of the camera. It seems like either the cable or the socket in the camera is damaged.
