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 ).

HOW TO DOWNLOAD PICTURES FROM CANON A400


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer. That way you don't need any additional software.

When transfering pictures from camera to PC EasyShare will not transfer some pictures. "picture already exists" in My Collection. These are all new pictures taken with blank memory card. This occurs even...


Scrap the camera! Kodak hasn't and won't address the problem. Most picture download software won't recognize the camera. The only solution is to remove the memory card from the camera, put it in USB adapter and treat it like a flash drive. Cumbersome. Awkward. Stupid. After you scrap the ****, tell your friends so they don't make the mistake of buying a Kodak.

Deleted smart card by mistake. want to get the pix back. Have a Olympus Camedia C-3000 Camera, 3.3 mega pixil. Is there a program to reinstate deleted pix?


Have you ever accidentally deleted pictures from your cameras memory card? Or pressed the Format button instead of delete button and wiped your card clean?
However, there are also a lot of good open source / freeware apps out there that can usually get the job done. And that’s where the nice people at CONVAR come in – offering a program called PC Inspector Smart Recovery , which can recover lost pictures for free. What’s even better is that it’s extremely easy to use and works well (based on my tests).
Please note that after you’ve lost the picture, DO NOT take any more pictures on the memory card, as writing new data to the card lowers your chances of recovering the picture. Also note, that recovering the picture is not 100% guaranteed, but there’s a good chance your picture will be recovered.


Step by step instruction, here it is: 1: Download PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
2: Connect your memory card, either by a little memory card reader, or hook your camera up to the PC via the data cable.
3: Run PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
4: Select the drive which is the memory card. It should be the one that has just connected.
5: Leave the format type as .JPG.
6: Choose a destination for the recovered files.
7: Press ‘Start’.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.

I do not have the sofware to make work on my computer i broke the disk by mistake


You will need to "install" the software on your PC. Run the "setup.exe" program from your CD to do this.

You will also need to connect your camera with an USB cable to your PC to transfer pictures to and from PC.

Cant unlock picture


Please provide more information to troubleshoot problem (i.e. make of camera, are all pictures locked or just one, etc.) My guess is that you have locked the picture by mistake. Check your manual for the override procedure.

Handycam utility will not work


Took me a lot of cursing, and it's very simple. On your camera's screen there are 2 options saying "USB Connect". Only when you look really closely do you see that the 1st one is for the hard disk and the second is for a memory card. I expect you are using the wrong one..I was!
