I got a digital concepts 24280 and it wont charge...i mean when i plug it into my computer the red light shows up and all i see is PC what does that mean and what can i do to charge it in camera mode?!
The pc function means that it is connected to your computer this is good because now you should be able to upload pics and ect...the red light is simply to show its charge level and is always on when plugged in to computer also there should be a switch on the side to change from camera to charge if its on charge and the light is red then its carging and it will turn green when its done.

Have you tried leaving it to charge (with the red light on) for a few hours. The red light usually means a completely drained battery that needs a few minutes/hours to recharge.
Also, try cleaning the battery connectors with a rough toothbrush...
When you plugged in the battery did the red light flash? If it did that means your battery doesn't work anymore and you need a new one. This happened to me, and I bought a new one from best buy. It costs about $50. Hope this helps!
This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).
So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!
This camera is compatible with vista and you dont need any software for this camera to work on vista, its plug in play device. When you connect the camera to your computer it should show up as removable disc under my computer. If its not showing up please try connecting the camera into different usb port and make sure your laptop is fully charged.It will work.
sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)
I just bought one of these and discovered that someone had punched a hole through the software CD to hang the package on a peg! I found the driver and successfully loaded it from the following website.
It appears there is an issue between the battery or the charger cord. If you have had your battery for a long time and use the charger for prolong periods, it can actually burn out your battery quicker.
To prolong the life of your battery and make sure it works properly it's best to run it out entirely, then recharge it. Charge it for the suggested time frame, not any longer, as that can sometimes do something worse.
See if you can track down another replacement battery. If you have had your battery or set for a while now, over a year or such, chances are its time to get another one...
Red lights are a sign of uncharged or battery issues....
Keep us posted and good luck!
