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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

SOURCE: can't download to computer

You need to go to the tools menu and change USB fro PTP (Picture transfer protocol) to MASS STORAGE. PTP is only used if controlling camera from computer.

SOURCE: My Nikon S4000 (black) won't charge. I've tried

Follow this order:
when plugging in the camera and then plugging into the compuer does the computer recognise it? If not this is either a bad cable, or not an active USB port, or something has gone wrong interanlly with the camera. Internal can be anything from bad voltage chip to bad battery. But some people have put the battery in backwards or with the positive terminal the wrong way. Double check that this has not happened, as anyone could have done it, unless you live alone. Try another computer and see if it recognises that camera if so the cable is good and you can continue to trouble shoot in other areas.

SOURCE: My Nikon S4000 (red) won't charge. I've tried

The battery itself won't charge in-camera like a cell phone-- you'd need to remove the battery and plug it into the supplied charger (EH-68P). You may have an ac adapter for the camera that basically would just be used to power the camera without a battery or for long periods of time without relying on the battery. It wouldn't be used to charge the camera.

SOURCE: fast flashing green light when trying to charge

usually fast flashing charge is faulty battery its trying to get volts in to the battery. you see the battery has a charging board on the battery not in the camera the camera sends the volts to the battery and the battery tells the camera its voltage, and when at the right volts stops charging. but these batteries can only be charged to around 10000hrs depending on the type of battery. you see when you get a new battery you need to charge it before use, now this can be 6hrs to 12hrs for fist time use if you interrupted the charge or have a power cut while it charges it can damage the charging chip in the battery. if this does the flashing light on other batteries then the signal is not being read by the camera and the camera can be faulty on the charging circuit, usually (sometimes) removing the battery for a few hours can fix this but it will rest the camera. hope this helps you.

To make it possible, to point out where the problem is, you could try some rings.
Try to charge the camera with an external power supply. If you have it, the F-2AC from Olympus.
If that also does not charge, you could try to replace the USB cable.
But if the camera starts charging, you have to look for the USB connector in the computer. Be aware, in some computers the power, delivered from a USB connector, should be capable of giving 5 volt and 500 mA. Sometimes internally the computer is not correct wired, and won't give the 5 volt at all. Special when you hav build the computer yourself, you can check inside the computer. BUT ONLY when is sure the camera can charge via an external USB charger.

Then you could check if nothing is wrong in the camera. All contacts, on battery and in the camera, should be clean and shiny. You could clean contacts with a dry cloth. Never use sharp tools.
Also check the USB connector on the camera, if no debris is in the connector, or no contact is bent or has corrosion on it.

Mac won't recognise canon drive


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to a Windows computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this camera photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

it seems that your computer is not recognising the camera. How do you connect it via USB . check the USB cable or the installation / driver software of your camera. and if every thing is ok and still the computer is not recognising the camera you can transfer the images thru card reader.

Computer won't recognise camera to download images


** Problem Solved **

I found it wasn't the camera entirely to blame. I tried another USB cable on another pc, and although the camera was doing the same thing as my problem, the computer recognised the camera as new hardware, and asked me how to access the pictures. So I was able to get the pictures from the camera to the computer, and then saved them on to my Kingston flash drive. So taking the flash drive to my daily PC, I plugged in my flash drive via a USB extension lead, and discovered that would read either... alarm bells rang. So I unplugged the lead, and put the flash drive straight into the computer direct. The computer recognised it immediately. So plugging in the extension lead again, and the flash drive, it read this now. So I tried the camera, and it recognised it.

So I don't know exactly what the problem was, but it was solved... saved me a lot of running around and money ;)
