Computer not seeing camera.

I search the PC, I search the CD, I reinstall all software and restart, same problem.

I would like to download pics from a digital camera to my computer but the computer is old. I see no port for digital card


Do you have the CD that came with your digital camera?

IF so, put it in your optical drive, and install the software.
This CD contains the drivers for your camera.
Drivers allow your computer to 'communicate' with you camera.

Now obtain the correct USB connector that plugs into your camera. Should be a male Micro, style of USB male plug,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_types_2.jpg

The plug all the way to the left in the photo.

They sell USB cables that have this style of male USB plug on one end, and the usual USB A style on the other end of the cable.

Male. The male USB A style, is shown all the way to the right in the photo.

Looking at the usual style of USB plug, compare it's size to the Micro USB plug.

Yes, the female version of that plug is on your phone.

There is also a kit made by Philips, that has 5 different adapter ends of the USB style, in the kit.

The adapter ends just plug onto a male USB A style end.
The kit comes with a Male A USB to Male A USB cable.
It's rolled up on a tiny reel that is about 1 inch wide, and is retractable.
You just grab the ends of the cable, and pull out the length of cable you need.

This gives you an idea of what I'm referring to,

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Emerge-Tech-Retractable-USB-2.0-A-Male-to-A-Female-Cable/12575359

With the software from your camera installed on your computer, and the USB cable plugged from your camera to your computer, you are able to download.

Some camera's have it so you turn the camera on, and open the shutter. Your camera may differ. Check your camera user guide.

Another way is to buy an All-In-One card reader.
Plug a USB cable into it, and your computer.

This is an example,

I am not sure how to install the software


WARNING: DO NOT connect the camera to your computer before installing the software.
To install the software, insert the Logitech camera software CD into your computer's CD-ROM drive. The Setup screen should appear. If it does not, please perform the following steps:
  1. Click Start and then Run.
  2. Type D:Setup.exe and press the Enter key.
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions.
After the computer reboots, the driver installation for the camera will start. Do not connect the camera until the setup prompts you to connect the camera cable to your computer.
While the driver installation progresses, remove the camera and camera base from the packaging and mount the camera on the camera base.
When prompted, plug the camera into the USB port. You should see the following diagram to let you know where to plug the camera in:

After the installation is complete, the camera should be ready to use.

Thanks

Disney Pix Max 3.0 Megapixel Camera by Digital Blue can't download photos


If you're plugging the camera into a port on the front of your computer try one of the ports on the back. The front ports in most cases only provide 100 milli-amps of power whereas the back ports provide the full 500 milli-amps of power. This could be the problem or it could be your USB cable. Try a different cable and see if that makes a difference. Just make sure that you aren't plugging it into a USB hub and you're connecting it directly to a port in your computer.

Cannot upload pics from camera to PC


Hi Ray;
Try uninstalling the Fuji software completely, through the Windows control panel. Don't use the supplied software at all. Make sure the camera is unplugged from the computer. Open "my computer" and note which drives are present. Now plug in the camera (still turned off) to the USB port. Turn the camera power switch on. Wait and see if a new drive icon shows up. It may take a minute or so. If you get a new icon (probably Fuji DSC or similar), you should be able to open the new drive and access the images through the various folders. If not, can you see images on the camera screen (when not connected to computer)? If yes, maybe a bad cable. If no, could be corrupted images on card.

Camedia software to see my camera via the USB port.


I'm assuming a Windows Machine (98 or 2000), and that you have (known to be) working USB ports. Boot your computer. Plug the computer end of the USB cable directly into the computer USB port (not a hub). Turn off the camera. Plug the camera end of the USB cable into the 3000. Then turn on the 3000. Windows should recognize new hardware. When Windows asks about drivers for the new hardware, direct it to your Camedia CD. Probably directory \USB\Win98 (or 2000) or something similar. Windows should then load the driver automatically. I *don't* think the 3000 will show up as a Drive device in My Computer. I think only the 2040/3040/E10 models will. But, Camedia should see it now. Toward the left-hand side (center) of the Camedia screen you should see a camera icon. Click it and it should open directories, drill down till your pix appear as thumbnail images. If Camedia says it can't find the camera, select Edit/Options/Download from the Camedia menu and ensure that USB is the selected choice.

Why can't my computer communicate with my digital camera?


The cause and solution may include one of the following: There is a problem with the configuration of the USB port on the computer.See the USB.html file on the EasyShare software CD. The camera is off. Turn on the camera. The battery is not charged. Recharge the battery. Some Advanced Power Management utilities on laptops turn off ports to save battery life. See the power management section of the laptop User's Guide to disable this feature. The USB cable is not securely connected. Connect the cable from the camera to the computer port. The software is not installed. Install the software. The software is installed incorrectly. Do the following to install the software correctly: Disconnect the USB cable. Close all open programs. Uninstall, then reinstall the software. (To uninstall, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add/Remove programs.) Too many programs are running on the computer. Do the following to close all running programs: Disconnect the camera from the computer. Close all software programs. Reconnect the camera. The Battery Monitor or similar software runs constantly. Close the software before starting Kodak EasyShare software.
