Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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.


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 such as Picasa.

Most digital cameras (NOT ALL but the exceptions are sold as such)
can't be connected to the computer, when they are switched on.
Most digital camera's will shut down, when connected to the USB card. Your Canon G10 is no exception. Most of the time when connecting the USB cable the camera changes in an external memory drive for the computer. Some camera's can be charged via the USB cable. Even when connected to a computer.
Even when I want to connect my DSLR to a computer, to do life view on my computer screen, I have to install special (payed) software, to let it work.
Without the software running, the same DSLR always shuts down and only will download pictures when another program is started.

I dont know how to download the pics to my computer


If your camera came with a cd I would install it. If not I would search for and download the drivers for it, if just hooking it up via usb doesnt work. The other course would be to use your computers SD Memory slot to move pictures if it comes with that feature.

How do you recharge camera battery? camera manual is not clear abot how to hook up battery charger or even where it is!


The easiest way is by using a standard USB cable...plug the small end of the USB cable into your camera (located under the headphone jack) then plug the larger end of the USB cable into your PC or laptop. Turn on your computer & this will charge up your Vivitar 550.

You should have a cable that goes from your ipod to a USB connection. Then you just plug the USB connection into your computer, then the other end into your IPOD

Usb cable help!


It is normal behavior for the Kodak C613's screen to go off when connected to usb. With Kodak's usb driver installed, you should see two disk drives Appear in Windows Explorer. If not, please advise. The Easyshare software should recognize the camera as well.
