Re: transfer from camara to personalcomputer

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 such as Picasa.

Camara indicates No memory card

If this is occurring with multiple cards, and after you've also checked to make sure the tiny slide switch on the side of the card is in the unlocked position, then see this post for other possible remedies.

How can i uplaod pictures from my samsung camara S85 . it is connected to the computer but the computer shows no sign of anything plugged in into it . is there any setting that i need to put to the camara...

There is really only one sure way to transfer images from a digital camera to your computer and that is with a card reader ($15-20). Plugging the camera directly into the computer is one of the most problematic areas in digital cameras. It is so much easier to go buy a card reader and plug it into the USB port on your computer. Then remove the memory card from your camera and plug it into the card reader. You can now click and drag or use any normal method to transfer your images. I would also advise a free download called Picasa3 supplied by Google. It will keep your images organized and assist you as your transfer images using your new card reader. It does a whole lot of other things your will like also. Best Wishes.

Camara says memory card full, yet when i transfer no pictures

Have you initialised the cards before use? if not you can do that by formatting the cards through Windows. Try it and see if that works. Use NTSC Format.

Cant download my videos

You most likely have a picture management program like Arcsoft Photo Impression that automatically transfers pictures but not video to somewhere on your computer. The camera will probably show up as a Removable Disk in the My Computer window. The easiest way to transfer photos and videos is to click and drag by clicking on the picture or video clip and dragging it to where you want to go by holding down the left mouse button

Most Canon cameras you just plug it in the computer and away it goes... If that doesn't work set it to playback mode and then plug it into the USB port. If that still doesn't work, open up My Computer on your computer and see if it shows up, if it does right click it and make sure the Auto Play is set to transfer the pictures and is not turned off.

Hope this helps.

Camara wont power up

I have a similar problem where the product stopped working and froze. No buttons worked, replaced batteries seveal times.

Spoke to Hp Customer service where they stated buy another camera??? It was out of warranty for about 2 months.

So I bought a Kodak camera with great customer support and will never buy another HP Product again.

My problem was solved!

A Dropped Camara. Please Read

That is what casio calls a lens error. You will have to send it in and have it fixed. The cameras don't do well even when dropped from that short distance. Call repairs at 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 1. Tell them that you talked to tech support already otherwise they will try and transfer you to their tech support.
