Use safe mode to boot into windows to see if it will work, then use last working configuration to get it to boot normally.

How to download pictures from phone to a USB drive


Both devices are USB slaves. You need a USB master, such as a computer. If your computer has two free USB ports, you can connect both machines to the computer and simply drag-and-drop the pictures from one to the other,

If you only have one USB port, then connect the phone drag=and-drag the pictures to a temporary folder on your computer, then disconnect the phoe, connect the tablet, then drag-and-drop.

How do i download photos from pc to digital photo frame


1. Connect the digital photo frame to an available USB port on the PC. Turn on the PC and the digital photo frame. Connect one end of the USB cable to the USB port on the digital photo frame (this end is usually smaller) and connect the other end to the USB port on the PC itself.

2. Wait for the PC to automatically detect the USB-connected digital photo frame.

3. Move any photo files that you want to display on the digital photo frame. Do so by copying and pasting each file into the connected USB device that you can view in "my computer". Many photo frames have built-in memory for this feature.

I can't upload pictures from my camera b/c the usb link does not recognize the camera.


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.

There are also plenty of photo catalog software packages out there, some free, some not, that can transfer and catalog your pictures so you can quickly find pictures from Susie's birthday party, for example. Just do a google search for "photo catalog software".

You may have blown fuse for the 5VDC line for the USB port, you need to check PIn 1 of the USB to see if you do have 5VDC, if you do, it can be damaged USB interface chip, or it can be as simple as bad USB cable. Did you verify that the USB port on your PC is OK?

I have a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H10. When I try to upload photos, a box pops up saying "error occurred, check connections and try again." I've tried many different things and need some help! thank you!


Hi,
Copy all your pics from the camera to your card and take the card out.

This is a factory reset procedure so you will loose any pics in the internal memory!!

Turn the camera off and take the battery out (including AC power). move the power switch to the ON position and hold down the power button for 15 seconds, then move the power switch to the OFF position and release the button, put the battery back in and power on the camera.
NOTE: you will have to reset the time and date + any previous user settings.

Good luck

Everytime I plug my Polaroid i733 into the USB Cord to transfer my pictures, it comes up as USB Error and says that is has malfunctioned


Okay could be a program error with windows and that port. If you have a port on your pc SD Mini port take your camera card out and slid it into the PC port SD mini. it "should accept your photos." download them into My picture folder or some where you can remember. My doc, or my downloads. Oh what many for get is the pic's on your camera will be huge. maybe 3Mbs each, so be sure to compress them. Or it will take for ever and a day to email them. Compressing will not damage the Pic quality.

Use the USB ports that are on the back f the PC, not the front ones or the one on the keyboard, these are low power USB ports. You can also purchase a powered hub that supplies its own power. The maximum draw on 1 USB port is 500ma, shared across all devicesattached to that port including non powered hubs. My USB PC-cam took 450 all by itself!
