    camera is already in use, but there are no other apps running. The computer knows it is there but won't establish a connection for download. it also asks me to select a program to use upon the initial plug in but there are no programs to choose from because the list is blank

    While installing the solution disk (A560 & A570), I just got a very fast glimpse to choose the Canon camera so it was left out. I continued the installation (both Easy and Custom). However, when I attempt to download images, a message appears that the connection cannot be established between the camera and the computer.



    I reinstalled the software but to no avail. I have followed all the steps indicated in the manuals but I keep receiving the same message.



    I have another digital camera and when I connect it there is an automatic connection. This was installed when I bought it several years ago. Do I need to delete it from my files and if I do, will it still function?



    I read, a while ago the following;







    USB TWAIN Driver











    The USB TWAIN Driver is not compatible with Windows XP. If the driver was installed on your computer, it must be uninstalled with the following procedures before installing the USB WIA Driver, which is the Windows XP compatible driver.



    On the Solution Disk, you will see: CAMERA TWAIN DRIVE 6.7. Is this the same?



    My Operating System (OS) is Win XP2 with sufficient memory and hard-disk space.



    In advance, I thank you for your help.

    I've had my camera for about 3 months and I thought i had taken good care of it.I'm very protective with my stuff and never let my camera out of my sight when held by anyone else. Then, just about a month ago i couldn't upload pictures to my computer. I thought, "hey, maybe there's too many pictures." so I took my memory stick to Walgreens to get my pictures there. When I come back home, still, i can't upload. What's the deal?

Cannot transfer files from samsung wb850f camera to computer


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.

Transferring Pictures.


If you have installed software from the supplied disc, remove it. Very often this software more of a hindrance than any use. Windows 2000 should recognise the camera when plugged in via the USB as a 'new' drive in my computer
