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.

Your battery is dead. Try to recharge it. If the light in your USB cable is solid red, then the battery is recharging. If it's solid green, then it's fully charged. If the light is flashing yellow, then the cable needs to be replaced. If this doesn't fix the message, then you will need to send the camera into Samsung and have them repair the camera.

Every time i plug in my sony camera to the usb port to upload my pictures, my camera will say " usb mode. connecting to mass storage" then that will go away after a few seconds and then it...


Hi,

The "USB mode" and "Connecting to Mass Storage" message will get displayed when the Camera is connected to the Computer and is recognized by the Computer as a Mass Storage device. This is not an error message and is a normal operation.
You can change the Mass Storage settings in the Camera (depends on the model) The USB Select or USB Connect option in the Camera can be changed to PTP, Mass Storage or PictBridge mode. Set the option in the Camera to PTP and connect it to the Computer and check if the Computer is recognizing the connection. Once the computer is recognized, it appear as a removable Drive.
You can transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer from the Removable Drive by copying and pasting.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

I connected my cable to transfer pictures from my canon 100 ixus but it showed connection error. What does it means?

Troubleshooting the camera displaying Communication Error when connected to the computer via USB. If the camera displays "Communication Error," when trying to download images the main cause for this error is that there are more than 1000 images stored on the memory card. It is recommended if there are more than 1000 images on the memory card, that you use a card reader to acquire the images, or to delete images off of the memory so that there are less than 1000 images to download from the memory card.
If this is not the case, there are not 1000 or more images on the memory card, try reconnecting the camera to abnother port on the computer, try another cable or another computer. This error can also display when connecting to a direct print printer. Please check with the printer manufacturer for more information on this error.

USB connection with the camera causes computer to crash.


Try using a different USB cable. The connections between cameras and computers usually are problematic. A card reader will allow you to download the pictures from the SD card, without problems and saving your camera's battery power supply

  1. Turn on the camera.
  2. Insert the recording media containing the pictures into the camera.
  3. Depending on your camera, set the USB Connection or Transfer mode setting in the menu to the Mass Storage , Normal , or PTP .
  4. Use the USB cable supplied with the camera to connect the camera to the computer. IMPORTANT:
    • Connection through a USB hub or other USB device -- such as a printer or keyboard -- is not supported and cannot be guaranteed. Connect the camera directly to a USB port on the computer.
    • If the USB connection from the camera is not recognized by the computer, disconnect the USB cable and repeat steps 4 and 5 using a different USB Connection or Transfer mode setting. If the connection is still not recognized, further troubleshooting is available.

    NOTES:
    • The computer will automatically install the USB driver for the camera.
    • When the camera connection is established, an AutoPlay window will appear.

  5. In the AutoPlay window, click Import pictures .
  6. In the Importing Pictures and Videos window, click the Import button. NOTE: After the pictures have been imported, the Windows Photo Gallery window will appear and display thumbnails of the imported images.
If this doesn't work there is an updated driver available

"No camera is connected" -- USB connection


The "No camera is connected" 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.

"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.
