PC won't pick up camera connection

I am trying to get my pictures from my camera onto the computer via a USB cable. Last few times I did this I just unplugged the USB cable after uploading without disconnecting it first via "safely remove hardware" before physically unpluggin it. Now when I plug the camera in, it doesn't pick up that there is a PC attached.... what do I do??

You need to reinstall the driver that will make your computer to see your camera. The driver for the hardware must have been corrupted, re-installing this driver will solve the problem. if you have a cd application that came along with your camera, it will be better if you use that to repair the damage driver by installing the software unto your system. Thanks

Wher can I buy a usb cable for my Polaroid m737t?


Consider NOT using the USB connection.


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. Even if you have to buy a card reader, it won't cost much more than a USB cable.


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.

DEAR SIR,

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer can be done by two means....

1.INSTALL THE SOFTWARE C.D GIVEN ALONG WITH THE CAMERA IN YOUR NOTE BOOK....
THEN SWITCH ON YOUR CAMERA AND CONNECT THE CAMERA TO YOUR P.C VIA U.S.B CABLE,AND WAIT FOR FEW SECONDS FOR THE P.C TO DETECT YOUR CAMERA,ONCE THE CAMERA IS DETECTED IT WILL ASK YOU,WHETHER TO COPY YOUR CAMERA IMAGES TO YOUR P.C


2..Remove 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.

Consider getting a card reader instead. You should be able to pick one up at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store for less money than a USB cable.
