SOURCE: my camera is a dxg digital camera and its stuck on busy mode and doesn't know how to fix it can u help me?

busy mode? First thing I would do is reset the camera. This is a fairly easy procedure which involves either going into your setup menu and choosing "reset," holding down the menu key for 5 seconds, or, removing the batteries for a few minutes. It may be that the firmware loading got corrupted and the camera just needs to be "rebooted," which is something that turning it on/off won't accomplish. But after which, you should have the camera reset to factory default settings.

DPS mode is used to connect this camera directly to a printer. Unhook any cables from the camera and use the mode dial to remove it from DPS mode.

SOURCE: Video camera DXG-305V

for dxg 305v not working in windows vista I found the total solution to this problem. I am able to make my dxg 305v work in vista home premium addition now. To put it simple I bought a new computer with vista that also has a slot for the sd card that is in my dxg camera. If I should video or take pics on the camera, store it to the sd card and then place the sd card into the computer card reader-

-The pictures shot can be opened directly through the computer start menu choice (on the far right), then go to the icon for the sd card drive, then open the icon and appropriate folder containing the pictures on the memory card. then pics can be dragged and copied to the hard drive and opened up as any other photo picture file.

-The same thing can be done with the video files saved on the memory card, if you request that they be opening only with a free video player called divx, download it at No other vdeo player on the market, at least to what I have seen has the codex to open the video files except for divx.

I also did one other thing earlier. I have no idea if it assisted in the solution or not. I will probably never now. By chance from earlier on I went to
and downloaded the current driver available for the camera and all I can tell you is that this drive did not help in any way to get the computer to recognize the camera with the usb plug plugged in. Maybe it helped with the sd card being readable. I'm not sure.

any questions email me at

What is meaning of "

The USB mode controls what the camera looks like (behaves as) when you connect it to your computer. "Mass Storage" means that it will look like a flash drive, and it will appear as a disk drive in your Explorer on your computer. Hint: this is probably the mode that you want if you're going to copy your photos off from the camera.

To help understand this, if your camera could be used as a webcam (it probably can't) then it might have a 'webcam mode' where connecting it to the computer made it appear in "scanners and cameras" on your computer instead of in your Windows Explorer. In that case you wouldn't be able to copy photos off the camera because you wouldn't be able to browse to the folder that contained them.

There's a definition here:

I do not know how to get the pictures from my camera to the computer. I have sim card and a usb cord.
OK, it's simple really, go to the below website and find and download your driver, install the Driver and software, then, when you connect up with the USB cable, the PC will "See" the camera, then you should see the camera as a "Drive" and as such you can, copy, pate, and cut, as normal.

You can use the USB mode to connect to a printer or a host PC. Before connecting to a printer or PC, refer to Installing software and drivers on the page 76 of the User Manual.

When the video camera is connected to the computer or printer using the USB cable, one menu displays in your monitor.

Use the joystick to highlight an option and press the scroll wheel inwards to confirm.

You can select PC Camera feature, when you set in this tag, the video camera can be used as a webcam for video conferencing.

I hope helped with this.
