Have you confirmed that none of them work? Do the USB ports show up in device manager (look for USB Root Hub entries).

If all else fails, you could always buy an internal PCI card that has USB ports on the backplane.

Does your digital camera have an SD card or other memory slot that you could simply plug into your desktop to transfer your pictures?

Sony bluetooth dppa-bt1 USB device in a Sony digital pic frame. Can I transfer pics from an iPhone 5 to the digital pic frame?

No. by that logic, why don't you just connect a printer and print straight from it, or hook it up to the Internet. Sorry, but having a USB plug doesn't make it work with everything USB, USB mass storage devices only (like flash/pen drives) will work

I am trying to transfer pics from my camera to my pc ??? i plugged it in and card is in camera but nothing?? help?

Here are some steps to run through to make sure the camera works as you'd expect it:

  1. Ensure that all cables are properly secured from the computer to the camera.
  2. Ensure that the memory card has not been dislodged from the camera.
  3. Check the camera's memory socket and the memory card for debris. A can of 'compressed air' can work wonders (typically available at any computer store).
  4. Make certain that the port connecting the camera to the computer is not damaged. Look for any bent pins in the camera's memory slot. Try replacing the camera cable. If the camera uses a USB port, try another USB port. If you don't have another USB port available, try plugging in another USB device to verify that the USB port is working.
  5. Check the power source on the camera. If you're using batteries while attempting to transfer the pictures to the PC, try changing your batteries, recharge the batteries, or use an A/C adapter.
  6. Try reinstalling the digital camera software on your computer. In most cases, reinstalling over top of the existing software will resolve this issue.
  7. Take the media out of the digital camera and attempt to download it to another computer. If all else fails, try formatting the camera media. Most newer-generation digital cameras equipped with an LCD screen have a menu option that can format your media.
Hope this helps.

For some reason now my computer wont recognise my canon powershot A560 -says something about connection.I use to get a window on view screen on my camera that i used to download pics onto computer via usb...

Windows updates changes the registry and sometimes causes our "toys" to stop working. You can contact Microsoft and get instructions to re-write your registry(very dangerous if you don't know what you're doing) or, you can do what the pros do to avoid this very common problem....get a card reader! typrice_40.jpg

You'll need SD card reader (Ebay $5 for exc.)

Problem Uploading Pics through USB Port

Are you using the Kodak software?

Try uninstalling and re-installing it, remembering to re-boot the computer after uninstalling, before re-installing.

A MUCH faster way of transferring pics, is to use a USB card reader. Take the memory card from the camera and place it in the card reader.
