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.

SOURCE: conecting thr camera to my computer

@keren:

That error message somehow means your USB connector wasn't plugged in properly to the camera. Another thing is that windows xp doesn't have driver for your camera that's why it wasn't recognized. what's the brand of your camera though? If you just want to transfer your pix from camera to pc or vice versa, use a card reader like the guy above me said.

SOURCE: Camera window keeps telling me that the camera is not detected

How about try these again

1- Uninstall all of the software related to Canon.
2- Install the drivers for your Canon ONLY.
3- After installing the drivers, plug your camera to a different USB port. (test your USB is working okay by connecting another USB device)
4- TURN YOU CAMERA ON
5- The drivers for your camera will be installed.
6- After it is finished, click start, then computer. Now you should have one Icon starting with canon.....
If you see this icon, double click on it. You will find one or more folders which contain the pictures stored in your camera. You may now download, delete Etc.

You either have not done above steps correctly, or your cable or your USB port is bad.

Good Luck!!!!!!

How do i install a software for windows xp on my windows 7


Most of the softwares for Microsoft Windows XP are compatible with latest Operating Systems (OS) of the same company. So you can try to install the software through the installer.
If the installation fails with error you should understand what is the reason.
If the reason is incompetibility with the OS you may consider to install Windows XP Mode on your Windows 7. You can download Windows XP Mode from the Microsoft site. This is the link to the page. You should choose the options from the drop-down menus according your system (32 bit or 64 bit).
Then you will have the oportunity to download Windows XP Mode and Virtual PC.
After installing these softwares and restarting the computer, you could enter Windows XP mode and install your XP based software. I hope this helps you. Good luck!

I have a coolpix p2 digital camera and I just want to know how I hook up my digital camera to my computer because the instruction book that I have is in spanish. can you please help


You can download the user manual (English) from:
http://www.nikonusa.com/pdf/manuals/coolpix/P1P2_en.pdf

The following is taken from the manual (page 61):
"Using the UC-E6 USB cable and PictureProject software provided with your camera,
you can transfer photographs and movies to a computer and view them. Before
images can be transferred (copied) to your computer, PictureProject must be
installed. For information on installing PictureProject, see the Quick Start Guide
and the PictureProject Reference Manual (on CD).
You can transfer images to a computer using a wireless LAN and play back the
pictures on computer. See "Wireless Transfer Mode" (c132) for more information."

Or you can use the Windows XP software. Step by step instructions on downloading and installing the software is given in the following website:

Cant install bluetooth drivers on my hp compaq nx 7400 notebook


Which operating system do you have on your computer? Windows XP or Windows Vista?

Windows XP

A detailed troubleshooting page for Bluetooth devices on Windows XP can be found here.


Windows Vista

If you have Windows Vista or that doesn't solve your problem. You can try typing in the name of your Bluetooth device you're trying to connect followed by drivers into google

For example, if I were trying to connect a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 to my computer, I would type the following into Google: Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 Drivers

Good luck!

"Connection failed" -- USB connection


The "Connection failed" error message indicates a communications problem in the USB connection between the camera and the computer. Simply put, the computer cannot find the camera it is being asked to connect with. There is usually no single "most likely" reason for the conflict -- it could be a hardware issue as easily as it could be a software issue. Fortunately, the most common causes of this error message are also the most easily identified: * Make sure that the computer's operating system is USB compatible. Microsoft Windows 95 and NT operating systems are not compatible with USB technology. (In addition, PhotoMAX and PhotoImpression software cannot be installed on Windows NT systems.) If you have an incompatible operating system, you must upgrade to Windows 98, Me or 2000 to use a USB connection. Your computer must also have the appropriate USB connectors. NOTE: This camera cannot make a USB connection with a computer running Windows XP. * Make sure that the camera power is on. Follow the camera instructions to turn the camera on. Some cameras conserve battery power by turning off automatically after a few minutes of inactivity. If necessary, install new batteries or connect the camera to AC power (if it has an AC power adapter). * Make sure that the camera is correctly set to access images. Make sure the camera is turned on and that its mode dial (if it has one) is correctly set for transferring pictures to the computer. Refer to the camera user guide for more information. * Make sure that the camera cable has not been damaged or become disconnected from the computer. Confirm that both of the connectors are firmly attached. Check the cable for breaks, kinks or other defects, and check the connectors for bent or broken pins. If the cable is broken or kinked, obtain a new cable.
