Re: camera wont download to new computor

If your computer came with Windows Vista then there's no driver for the G2 and it wil not work.

The only thing you can do is buy a card reader which downloads your pictures directly from your card. They are thankfully cheap (usually less than $20) and easy to use.

There's a gazillion types of cards & card readers so make sure you buy the right one.

Hello there,........i have a samsung digimax s500cyber530 that i bought appox: 4 years ago?,.....and we just several days ago replaced an 8 year old gateway "windows" computer w/a brand new HP...

Once you get the camera working again by the "shuffling technique", don't connect it to the computer again. Instead, purchase an inexpensive card reader and use it to download pictures from now on. typrice_31.jpg

Does your camera have a USB port if so connect cable to computor & switch on camera your computor should recognize a new hardware device and a pop up box will appear giving you the option ofimporting your pictures.Or take memory card out of camera & plug into a card reader then into usb port on computor,If you are using windows click on my computor & click on icon for the memory card & choose copy.

Will not download pictures,to computor

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 Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Wont download pics on computor

Sometimes the antivirus software can block downloading pictures. Try disabling the anti virus software then check if you can download.
