Re: My DMC-f27 suddenly quit being recognized by computer


First, make sure both ends of the USB cable are firmly connected to the computer and camera.
If no screen pops up asking to select PICTBRIDGE or PC, then there might be a problem with the cable.

I would suggest getting a card reader instead to download pictures. They are many times faster than USB cable, and they aren't too expensive. ($10.00-$70.00).

I recommend this card reader.

When I connect my Canon PowerShot A3100 IS camera to either of two laptops via USB cable, I get an error message stating "USB Device Not Recognized - One of the USB devices attached to this computer...

I had this problem today and you might want to check this
from PC's menu = go to my computer right click and select properties
select device manager,
locate "canon camera" which may be under portable devices as mine was
There is either a plus or minus sign next to it. If it is negative as mine, delete this driver. Make sure your camera is off and unplugged before you delete it.
Plug camera in, turn on and the camera should download the driver again.
It worked for me - I'm not technically brilliant but basically, the driver wasn't working correctly.
If you can't find the same settings, call customer service - they were great.

My brother-in-law gave me a lumix dmc-f27 camera without the accessories, how can I download photos from its memory card?

Hi there.
If the camera has a memory card, take it out and put it in a card reader. Connect the card reader via USB to the pc. You can transfer photos from there.

It may be time to consider 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 cataloging program.

My Panasonic DMC-LZ3 camera appears to have locked up

Make sure the scene mode dial is correctly "clicked" into a choice. You could also try this...remove the card and all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

Not recognising USB

To remove the message, press MENU/SET. You can also eliminate any problems by using a separate card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop.

The flash does not work on my dmc-f27, why?

Check to see whether you've turned on the digital conversion for a wideangle or other lens. As I recall, that disables the flash. There may be a conflict between the flash and some of the other possible camera settings as well.

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.
