Question about Digital Cameras

Digital camera-to-computer USB connection

Although I've tried installing a new battery into my camera, used 3 different USB cables, and tried on two different computers, I cannot get my camera recognized; therefore, I cannot download the photos stored in it. Please - can you help?

The camera is a Minolta Maxxum D; the computer is a Dell Inspiron laptop running XP. I've downloaded literally dozens of photos to this computer from this camera; suddenly, it doesn't work.

Thank you very much for any help; there are no camera shops around here.

My cammera will not charge! The orange light does not show up when charging ???

There are 3 possibilities to charge the battery of the camera:

1. Connecting the Olympus' USB cable to camera and computer.
2. Connecting the wall charger to the camera with Olympus' USB cable.
3. Using a specific separate wall charger for LI-50B batteries.

Be sure to connect the cable well and if the orange LED does not light when trying to charge the battery using above points 1 and 2, there might want to exchange the Olympus' USB cable first to check what's wrong. (Cable model: CB-USB6). Another point is to check if the battery is seated well in the camera.

Battery won,t charge

the price of KLIC7001 $29.00 try to purchase the battery at wallmart target or at,
how do you charged your camera USB cable or AC adaptor? if USB cable make sure that the Cable is working fined and the USB port of a computer is not defective., If the AC adaptor., try to clean the 3 metal contacts of your KLIC7001 using clean dry cloth, then charge it again. if its failed., try to test first the camera itself using different KLIC7001 if its not charging it means the problem is on the camera not the battery

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 camera.

Last thing to try is to buy a multi-card reader/writer and put the memory card in there. That has to work!

Hope that helps.

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 ;)
