You could try the folowings:

1) Run your picture project program under XP SP 2 'compatibilty mode'.

2) Run the picture project program in XP mode if your computer and version of Windows 7 allows it (eg. Professional or Ultimate versions but your computer processor will need to support 'hardware virtualization).

3) Run the program in a Virtual machine with XP installed: I would use Sun VirtualBox which is free and does not need hardware virtualisation (unlike windows 7 'native' XP mode or VPC2007).

As you can see, you do have some options to overcome Windows 7 shortcomings! Hope it helps.

My pc wich has windows 7 can't detect my samsung digital camera a503 i need a fix because i have tried everything


Try 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.

My acer aspire one d150 netbook webcam is missing . went to device manager and imaging display is missing . can anyone help with this problem?


Camera is not detected, there are several possibilities:

The first possibility
There was an error installing the driver. AOD150, manufactured by three types of cameras, chicony, liteon, suyin. Example: I installed the camera driver, suyin to AOD150. At the time of installation, a message appears, hardware not found / not detected / not recognize. This means, suyin not the right driver.

Solution

1. Open link driver AOD150
2. Operating System = Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition x32
3. Download software = Hardware Vendor Detection Utility
4. Double-click = HWVendorDetection.exe. We will find the right camera hardware.
5.
Download and install the Liteon driver

11_26_2011_6_54_05_pm.jpg

The second possibility
If the hardware vendor detection utility, does not detect camera

Solution 1
(assuming, normal hardware)
1. Possible corrupt operating system.
2. Reinstall the operating system, by doing format drive C.
3. Move all data from drive C to D/E/F.
4. Download drivers AOD150, and other applications, save it on drive D/E/F
5. Insert the Windows CD bootable. Perform boot from CD.
6. Press enter - F8 - New Installation - format the C drive, etc.
7. After the OS install is complete, install all drivers (chipset, LAN, VGA, sound, camera, etc)

Solution 2 (assuming, damage hardware)
Contact Acer Support

I hope this information useful, thank you.

Canon PowerShot S3 IS & Windows 7


This is correct. The S3 is discovered by windows 7 and will allow download of pictures by Windows Picture download. The Canon Utilities software - Zoombrowser - will not work with windows 7 as the software cannot detect the Camera via Windows 7.. Also, Camera window will not start, if using the PC/laptop for remote image recording. If you virtualise XP within Windows 7 this still will not work. The only solution at the moment, if you are deperate, like I was (as I use the Remote Capture process a lot), is to either stick with Win Xp or Dual boot XP on a smaller partition.

No matter which computer I put my digital camera attachment to download pictures, it will not download pictures at all. It keeps telling me there is nothing attached (camera or scanner) to get pictures...


Since that you already used different computer still its not detecting the camera It means the problem is either On the USB cable itself or on the camera USB slot. Because windows XP vista or Windows 7 has a generic driver for all the camera it should detect all the camera thats been inserted on the CPU.

try to used different USB cable and make sure the USB cable is MODEL U-8 thats the right cable for your camera

Can't download pictures. software program doesn't appear on my pc to download.


Standard protocol - Plug in the USB drive into your PC AFTER they are both on - The PC should detect it and you should be able to go into your camera WITHOUT the need for software. The pictures will be in a folder within the drive your camera your PC detected as a new device/drive.

Computer (XP SP2) doesnt detect camera


Go to your computer's administrative tools and find services. Check the status your camera software. Status should read automatic. I had a software conflict that turned my camera window off.
