Question about Cameras

1 Answer

Can't download pictures from camera to laptop. Never had a problem before. It states USB is not recognised, bought a new USB lead & it still doesn't work. USB card reader doesnt work on my laptop. Re-installed laptop (vista) and it still wont download. sent camera for repair and got it back and it still doesnt work. phoned canon and they havent a clue and are looking into it. I have found a temporary work around by putting my flashcard in my printer and downloading via the printer but you need a printer with a flashcard port/reader for this.

Let's go all the way back to your card reader not working when you plug it in. Are you sure? Sometimes you have to open "my computer" to find it...it will be a removable drive.

Transfer pictures from camera to computer


I have two digital cameras and transferring pictures couldn't be easier.

I simply plug the usb lead into the camera and switch it on and then plug the lead into the computer. Both the camera and the computer recognise they have been connected and the Windows photo wizard starts automatically. From there photos can be downloaded from the camera or deleted.

I have a Samsung ST50. I plugged it into the computer a few weeks ago to download some pictures and a message came up saying the USB device I was using had malfunctioned and my computer didn't...


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.

I bought a used Vivitar vivicam 8025 camer off ebay, it didnt come with software, the owner told me i could download it.. is that true? and if so where?


You can get manuals, software (Vivitar Experience) and info from THIS LINK You will need to select "digital cameras" in the first box and your model in the second.

You don't really need software to get the pics onto your computer. There are two ways to do it: connect with a USB lead or take the memory card out of the camera and read it with a card reader attached to the computer.

Using a USB lead, you shouldn't need a driver or other software. The computer can recognise the camera memory as a removable drive without actually recognising the camera as a camera. Try looking in "My Computer" for an extra drive (Under "Devices with Removable Storage") and opening that. There should be directories with picture files in them that you can drag to your desktop.

Many people find it more convenient to just take the memory card out of the camera and put it in a card reader, especially now that these readers are built into computers and printers. The card then appears in "My Computer" as a removable drive and you can just drag and drop the pictures onto your laptop. You can't get the pics from the camera's internal memory that way though.

Computer won't recognise camera to download images


** Problem Solved **

I found it wasn't the camera entirely to blame. I tried another USB cable on another pc, and although the camera was doing the same thing as my problem, the computer recognised the camera as new hardware, and asked me how to access the pictures. So I was able to get the pictures from the camera to the computer, and then saved them on to my Kingston flash drive. So taking the flash drive to my daily PC, I plugged in my flash drive via a USB extension lead, and discovered that would read either... alarm bells rang. So I unplugged the lead, and put the flash drive straight into the computer direct. The computer recognised it immediately. So plugging in the extension lead again, and the flash drive, it read this now. So I tried the camera, and it recognised it.

So I don't know exactly what the problem was, but it was solved... saved me a lot of running around and money ;)
