Re: Software driver problem

Do any other devices connect successfully to that same USB port?
If no, try another USB port.
If yes, when you reinstalled your software, did you uninstall first? If not, see if you can. Once uninstalled, verify that the device is removed via Device Manager.
Once removed, if on XP or Vista, try to connect using the built in system drivers.
If this does not work, try reinstalling your drivers, but be sure to check for system prompts when you connect. If you do not respond to those prompts, the device will not mount.
Let me know how it turns out.

Cant upload photos from my Sony DSC-S750

Digital cameras on windows seem to like getting a letter that is higher than D but lower than H in the alphabet. I don't know why. But when windows assigns out all the letters through H: it sometimes stops mounting some devices properly.


Uninstall the camera driver and software, un-hook the camera, and restart. Then boot the PC. Make sure that you do not currently have any drives using letters F or G. If you do, use disk manager in your control panel to change the CD/DVD drive letter to Y,X, or Z

Attach the camera to a different USB port than you usually use (Believe it or not that is critical) and then reinstall the driver and software. Give it a moment before attempting to access the device and make sure that it is assigned a drive letter.

Should work fine after that.

Computer do not recognize kodak c703 and the transfer station is not working

I just had this problem with my D5000. I did a lot of troubleshooting to discover a Windows Code 19 error in device manager. To see whether this is your problem, go to Control Panel, select device manager. Your camera should be listed under cameras/imaging devices. If there is a yellow exclamation mark, disconnect your USB/transfer station. Using device manager uninstall the software drivers. Once uninstalled reconnect the camera and usb or transfer station. Drivers are on the camera. It should begin an automatic reinstall. When it says your hardware is successfully installed, you should be able to use the transfer station again. If not, and you got a disc with your station, then I suggest uninstalling all the software and reinstalling. Apparently in windows operating system, if the registry entry relating to that device is damaging, it will no longer recognise the device nor load the drivers. The only way to fix the registry is to uninstall the device and reinstall.
good luck

Camera window keeps telling me that the camera is not detected

How about try these again

1- Uninstall all of the software related to Canon.
2- Install the drivers for your Canon ONLY.
3- After installing the drivers, plug your camera to a different USB port. (test your USB is working okay by connecting another USB device)
5- The drivers for your camera will be installed.
6- After it is finished, click start, then computer. Now you should have one Icon starting with canon.....
If you see this icon, double click on it. You will find one or more folders which contain the pictures stored in your camera. You may now download, delete Etc.

You either have not done above steps correctly, or your cable or your USB port is bad.

Good Luck!!!!!!

Communication error

Sounds like you have corrupted or possibly deleted a Fine Pix Viewer driver software file.

Suggest you uninstall and reinstall Fine Pix Viewer.

Before you start you might want to create a backup folder on your C drive and put copies of all your photo files therein. Make sure your camera is not connected to your PC before reinstalling software.

Assuming Windows operating system click : Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add or Remove Software, then scroll to Fine Pix applications. You will probably have three to choose from. Since you don't know where the problem lies suggest you start with Fine Pix Viewer which will probably have a version such as 5.5 (in my computer anyway). Having highlighted this file click on the uninstall button.

Now reinstall from your Fine Pix CD.

Suggest you reboot so new software will recognise your camera when it is connected. With camera connected Windows will probably advise that there is new hardware and it is seeking software. Give it time and Viewer should boot up on your screen.

Canon 450D is not being recognised by my computer (I run xp 32-bit). When I turn on the camera, windows comes up with a "install new hardware" option. I have installed the EOS utility etc. but still the...

Both the Canon XT 350D and the XTi 400D are recognized by any PC with XP windows operative system. It seems you have to check your USB port or USB cable used to connect your cameras to the PC. Sometimes, the PC does not recognize a specific device connected to an USB port. Yopu can get into the System -device manager screen, and uninstall the USB port, and run the utility to recognize changes in the device manager. This will install the USB port driver again, and if it is a software issue the reason of the problem, then it will be fixed.

Also, you can check your cameras and USB cable in a different PC so you can confirm if they both work has should be.

OK...step 1...check all cables. Hooking the cable up and turning the camera on should put it in transfer mode...does camera do this?

If yes, step 2...go to system information and uninstall drivers.

step 3....use uninstall programs to remove sony software (BACK UP PICS FIRST)

step 4....reboot

step 5...reinstall software

sounds like your drivers are toast or your usb port is shot...try moving the cable to another usb port

Downloader says no pictures on camera

Depending on the version of software you have the drivers may not have loaded correctly. Try using a USB port on the back of your computer and see if it loads the drivers then. If not you may need to reinstall the software and the downloader. You may need to uninstall the DB CIF Cam depending on the version of software you have. The reason for this is if the camera was connected to the computer before the software was installed then Windows loads the most generic drivers it can find for the camera. From then on if the camera is connected to the computer Windows continues to load those drivers and not the correct drivers. Simply connecting to a different port can correct this or reinstalling all of the software can correct this.

Connecting to PC

First, let's get the obvious/simple things out of the way, just to be thorough :) :
Power off the PC, leave ten seconds, power on again then try it.

Have you tried it with another USB cable
Have you tried it on another USB port on the PC (if you've been using a front port, try a back one & vice-versa - they're often controlled by different chips).

Assuming none of those work, the most likely cause is a corrupted USB driver. To fix this:
* Make sure the camera's USB cable is not plugged into the PC.
* Uninstall the Olympus software (Camedia Master) if you have installed it.

Now delete the C5060 device as follows:

* Go to the Control Panel. Double click on System. Click on the Hardware tab and then click "Device manager".

* Go to the View menu and click "Show hidden devices".

*Scroll to the bottom of the device list and expand the USB list. You will see some USB Mass storage devices.

* Go through the list: double click on one, wait for its properties sheet to open and look at the Location. It will have something like:

Location 0 (C5060Z ).

Hit "Esc" to close the property sheet. If it was the right one, delete it (select it with the mouse and hit Delete). If it was the wrong one, proceed to the next one.

* Close Device manager.

* Reinstall the Olympus software if you are using it.

* Plug the camera's USB cable into the PC as usual. If all goes well, you'll get the "Found new hardware" message and it will proceed to reinstall the driver, following which all should be well.

After formatting my PC to upgrade it I've been unable to install the USB driver software to save pictures from my Tentax OPtio S4i to my PC.
