You didn't give the make and model of your camera, so I assume it uses a memory card of some type.

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 ).

Hi, I sure hope you guys can help me out! I am trying to download some pics from my computer onto the 4GB memory card in my Canon Powershot A460, but the camera won't let me. The reason I'm doing...


Sorry, no. The camera will let you read the card to transfer pictures to a computer, but it will not let you write to the card to transfer pictures the other way around.

You can buy a card reader that plugs into the USB slot on your computer. Despite the name, a card reader will also let you write to the card. Once the card is plugged in, it will appear as another hard drive.

The card reader will also be a better way to download pictures from your camera. It's likely to be faster and won't run down your camera's batteries.

I have 3 camedia cards for olympus d-450 zoom and need to know how to the images to my dell pc


If you have the latest driver downloaded so your pc can recognize the camera, first run the pic transfer program, then turn on camera, then lastly connect camera to pc via usb cable. Usually as soon as you plug in the camera it should ask if you want to transfer pictures. If it doesn't ask, then the driver probably needs to be updated or software needs to be reinstalled and pc restarted.

All cameras do this. As soon as you plug in the cord, the display will turn black. It is completely normal.
If the pictures aren't showing up on computer, make sure the latest drivers are downloaded for your camera. Also you can use, picture transfer or kodak easy share program to download.
Another way is to go to 'my computer" than either f: or g: drive should have your camera on it. You can access pictures here and drag n drop into another file.

Sounds like your software no longer recognizes the device is plugged in. I would open the software program that you are using with the camera plugged in and try to find the upload/connect to camera command. You should be able to start the download from there. Hope this helps!
