I cant transfer the pictures from the cam to the comp. I have installed the software from the CD and when i connect the cam to the comp and click on "start transfer", I get a "found 13....24...
I have found lately that some of the new computer operating systems are not at all compatible with camera firmware. The camera software appears to work but as you are experiencing the transfer of files doesn't function. I'm surprised that it's actually restarting the computer, which makes me wonder if you have followed the correct transfer work flow. I'm not saying this camera but some, you need to have the camera off while installing the cable between the camera and computer and then push and hold the playback button for a long second before you get the transfer screen.
The work around all of this is to purchase a card reader, make sure it is capable of handling the SDHC memory card, I would also suggest that you purchase a Multiple port card reader so that in the future the reader can be used with different memory cards.
The Card Reader plugs into a USB port on the computer and the memory card installs in the reader port. The computer looks at this as an external hard drive (mass storage device) and you can download your picture files to a folder you create in My Documents (computer hard drive). These picture files can then be opened in the camera software.
Basically all you have done is step around the camera firmware and ended any conflict in programing. I don't know if you are PC or Mac but the problem I've found started when Windows introduced their new Windows 7.
