Memory card not recognised when used with card reader. When cam is directly connected with usb also, data not recognised. But photos/videos are visible in cam. How to transfer them to pc/laptop.?

Are you using a 4GB or higher SDHC card, and is the computer (and/or card reader) more than a few years old? If so, that may be your problem. Would recommend considering the purchase of a new plug-in USB SDHC portable card reader (one that is stated capable of reading SDHC). These are only a few dollars on Amazon, and should allow you to download your photos. Note that if your computer is using Windows XP or newer, you should have no problems with the computer recognizing the plug-in reader. But if Windows 98 or older, you may want to ensure that the reader is capable of recognition with the OS before purchasing.

I cant get my pc to see my sony when I plug it in to usb what am I doing wrong???

If your computer is not recognizing this camera, then you may need some drivers to install on your computer. If any CD came with the camera, put that in your computer. If not, then go to this website and look for the drivers that match your operating system.

Picture off camera

If you are using a memory card in buy yourself a USB card reader to plug into your computer. Most cameras do not need drivers when plugged into a computer via USB port. Your camera should be seen by XP as a hard drive.

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.

My computer doesn't recognise my camera.

Hi There, If you are using Windows xp or vista, you probably don't need special drivers, the computer should recognize what you are trying to do. Just in case, check your owners manual for computer/download info. Also check your usb input or try another usb input to make sure they are working. You could also try a friends computer to eliminate trouble with your own. If all else fails, you could purchase a usb multi- card reader to down load your pics, around $20.00.

USB divice not recognized

I tried many ways to fix the problem. Someone suggesting unpluging it for 30 min. That didn't work. I downloaded the latest version of the camera driver. That didn't work. I downloaded the latest version of windows, and that didn't work.
I was running out of ideas. But I thought I might try restoring my computer to a prior date. This restore feature hasn't worked for me for 6 month. But, that day, luck was on my side.
Since I restored my computer to two weeks ago. My problem, is fixed!

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 ;)

Cannot upload pics from camera to PC

Hi Ray;
Try uninstalling the Fuji software completely, through the Windows control panel. Don't use the supplied software at all. Make sure the camera is unplugged from the computer. Open "my computer" and note which drives are present. Now plug in the camera (still turned off) to the USB port. Turn the camera power switch on. Wait and see if a new drive icon shows up. It may take a minute or so. If you get a new icon (probably Fuji DSC or similar), you should be able to open the new drive and access the images through the various folders. If not, can you see images on the camera screen (when not connected to computer)? If yes, maybe a bad cable. If no, could be corrupted images on card.

My canon S5 IS is not recongnized by Windows XP in my PC

i am afraid this is a microsoft O/S issue. It will not allow 2 imaging devices with twain drivesrs to be recognised at the same time. You have to disconnect one at the usb plug before the O/S can see the other one.

I have a scanner with twain drivers and XP will not recognise my S5 IS until i unplug the scanner. The O/S is recognising the camera as an imaging device rather than a usb mass storage device like for my other cameras.

Either MS need to fix this conflict issue or Canon need to reconfigure their drivers.
