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.
see the following steps: If the camera won't connect with your computer, make sure you have the
latest version of the needed software drivers (in your digital camera
package or online from the manufacturer). Check your computer for
conflicts (two devices trying to use the same port); you may need
technical assistance for this one. In some cases you can get things
working again by connecting the digital camera, then turning off the
computer and turning it back on.
However READ your owner manual, section troubleshooting for to try resolve problem too. God bless you
Usually when you connect your camera to the PC via the USB, the camera shows up as a drive in My Computer. From there you can open the device(drive) and browse through the files, copy or delete them.
Connecting the Camera via the USB and copying the files this way will be slower, but you can still get the work done. If you want fast transfers,4-5 time faster, a card reader would be a good option.
First, I need to ask the dumb questions:
1. Are both computers running XP?
2. When you connect the camera, do you turn the camera on?
3. Do other USB devices work when connected to the same
USB PORTS you are using to connect the camera?
Ok, since the camera is not recognized at all on both computers, we can
pretty much disregard USB PORT failure, but just in case, try different
USB PORTS on both, please.
Most if not all cameras should be recognized as mass storage devices
just by connecting them to USB PORT on computer, and should be visible
as a new drive in MY COMPUTER icon.
Maybe your bundled USB CABLE is not working, or this is one camera that
insists on using the bunbled software package that came with the
Last thing to try is to buy a multi-card reader/writer and put the memory card in there. That has to work!
