    I'm having trouble with my Largan Chemeleon Mega. It won't upload pictures, or it says "device not ready". I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the software; retrieving photos thru camera wizard; searching msn for updates and drivers; and I also tried contacting the Largan website thru the software manual. I'm using windows xp, and this cameras has worked with this system before. Does anyone know if the trouble could be xp updates?

    I have been trying for a week to get the pictures off my camera. First I loaded the software from the CD that came with the camera. Tried the camera out and then tried to retrieve pictures. Was just going to be for my 14 yr old to take on a trip to DC with school. Noticed that the software was freezing the XP workstation.

    Then I tried to load the software on my XP laptop, and I was able to retrieve 15 out of 55 photos and delete those from camera. Then I plugged back in and was able to only see an additional 8 pics. Was able to get those off the camera, and deleted. Now I have about 32 photosw left but everytime I launch the software, with device plugged in it recognizes the camera, just freezes after about 10 shots are loaded. Then the software goes to NOT RESPONDING. Not sure what is going on, but we would like to see the photos at least and unlike my Canon this doesn't register as a removable disk drive when I plug in. I even tried uninstalling the software from the CD and loading directly from the website. No luck.

    Any other solutions out there that people know of this is VERY frustrating?

First off. You can run Largan Cameleons on an XP no problem. The secret is download the driver from the offical website secondly make sure the USB is plugged into a strong USB connection. It has to have a lot of power. To use the Largan as a webcam you have to have it turned on no batteries inside plugged to the strong USB connector on your computer, next restart your computer, it should say "PC" on the little screen on the top. It will give you a wierd comment on the computer about connecting up and everything. It will complain about compatibility that is simply becuase Largan didn't shovel out cash to Bill Gates to get the product authorised. Next search for "video.exe" on your computer open that program up and it should accept your video from the Chameleon. You can use it with all your messanging clients too. AIM/YAHOO/MSN Pretty fast video, not the best colors but it is bright. Surprising for a cruddy product.

Is there a way to download pictures froma Moto W755 to a computer

The easiest way to do so is to buy a memory card with an adapter. Change the storage device of the pictures or video you want to the memory card, then it's all in there. They aren't at all expensive either, I bought mine for only 12 bucks and it comes with two different adapters.
