Re: software/drivers

No driver is neccessary. When you plug the camera into the USB port, Ubuntu should automatically mount the camera. If not, Open a command prompt and type the following command and post the output here:

dmesg | tail

You say you're running Ubuntu/Kubuntu. Which on are you using? Kubuntu uses the KDE desktop rather than GNOME, the default for Ubuntu. The user interface is different.

If the camera is mounted as it should be, it would be mounted under /media (Usually /media/disk), and that directory would contain all your pictures.

We have a Digital Photo Frame, model 13690/13597. I have the owner's manual and it says the software will autorun, but it does not. I tried clicking on it from my desktop and it still doesn't...

The software is designed to run automatically in Windows systems. It might not work in Mac or Linux systems. It might not work in Windows 7 also.
It will not work even if you click it on Mac or Linux systems.

Can I retrieve deleted pictures from my Olympus Mju 740?

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download asoftech photo recovery software
Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

HELP! I have lost my software!

The software for this camera does not work on windows 7 or Vista. If you just purchased a new machine it may not matter if you have the software or not.
  1. Mac driver and Software
  2. Linux driver, sets up automatically - no software
  3. Windows XP and earlier - Driver and Software but have to register.

My computer (ubuntu Linux) doesn`t recognise the A430; It is not possible to import images.What needs to be done?

if you do not find a driver for Linux...try a card reader ..this will be seen auto ..and you will be able to manage the files from the card directly .....just like from a memory stick...or any other removable device ...

I need the software to install the Polaroid digital 320 on a different computer as I have misplaced the original in a couple of moves. Is this a problem to get?

I've searched the archives at Polaroid and this is no longer available. If the camera uses a memory card, all you need to do is use a card reader to download the pics to a folder you create on your desktop. Once the pics are in the folder, you can view them individually or as a slide show. You don't really need the software.

There is no camera specific Linux driver. However, you don't need one to download pictures from camera to pc. If you're using Ubuntu 9.04, for example, F-Spot photo manager was installed by default and will start and allow you to save pictures from camera media to pc when you connect the camera to the pc USB connector.

The specs call for windows - we have linux -can it work?

Linux will read any storage media you might be using.

Skip the problem with incompatibility of the software in the camera, create the files on readable media, and import the pictures into linux.

Had same problem -- after removing and re-installing both the software and camera (multiple times), I found that I could get the pics via Picasa -- in Picasa, the camera shows up 2 different times for me, as a "dual mode camera"; the 2nd entry works, letting me import the pics. Terrible pics, btw, very blurry and grainy, even when taken in bright light (get what you pay for, right?).

I hate booting back to Windows, though -- I use Linux -- but even gphoto2 (which can handle just about ANY camera that Linux won't handle natively as a USB storage device) can't handle the proprietary encoding format Sakar uses. Oh well.
