I am having the same problem... and I have a Mac... everyone suggests getting a card reader for it instead of plugging it in directly. Inexpensive too.

Use a USB port on the back of the PC, not off a hub, or use a powered hub, It cant take more than 500mw of power per USB port, even though there are 2 ports, they may be off the same controller inside the pc. I use a powered hub and have not had that problem ever since. I had a webcam that drew 450 and no other device worked off that port.

    Dont use the port on the keyboard as it is a low power port. and USB is standardized in its power output between Mac and PC.

ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS AND VIDEOS TO A COMPUTER
If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

When charging the mouse hang


This usually indicates that your external device/camera is draining too much power from the USB ports power supply: try plugging the mouse or camera in different (opposite side USB ports if available or use a 'powered' external USB hub.

Good luck.

Consider 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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

When I attempt to download photos onto my laptop I either get a message saying the USB hub cannot take the power level required or there is no recognition at all. Any suggestions?

Can i charge my camera from my usb port


It should charge but quite a bit slower. Figure about 4 to 6 hours for a full charge. Of course the computer has to be running to power the usb port.

You may also have to change settings for the USB under control panel system hardware device manager then select properties of the usb port. There will be an option for how much power the port will supply.

Or you can just plug it in and see if it works. Most newer ports (USB 2.0 type) support powering usb devices. Only a few older ones (usb 1.0's) won't or can't.

if this unit came from HSN (most did) then their specs show that it needs xp .. but their video claims it works for vista as well .. actually it depends on which model you have .. the FS-C1-VP . runs only on XP and below .. model FS-C1-Vp-BX2 .. has software to run on Vista and below .. Model FC-C520-VP-Bx2..runs on anything including vista and doesnt require software .. it just looks like a Mass Stroage Device when you plug it in .. these all look like a nice little machines for slides and negitives .. you might try unplugging the device .. reload the software (if you have any) ... then reattach the unit (to a different port) .. still problems then the USB port may be going into current limit .. you can try a different USB port (maybe one at the back of the computer) or better yet use a port expander with its own power supply .. make sure you dont have other USB devices that might be drawing current from the same USB source device (ok with the expander) .. if that doesnt get it going then if it came from HSN you can call their customer service number .. 800 933 2887 ... your item number would be 320-712 ... if the port expander or other suggestions fix it then let us know ..

it sounds like the unit is just drawing more current than your USB port can supply .. that happens a lot with large USB memory sticks (8gb or more) .. they are getting very close to or even exceeding the spec on the port .. some USB ports can do it others just shut down .. the external port expander with a power supply will almost always fix that problem and they dont cost much .. they are kind of nice also because you can put the expander ports within easy reach.

Hi there,

If you're a MAC user, you could still download pictures from your camera to PC.

No need for you to install any CD software because your camera will be recognized automatically as a removable disk.

Just try to make sure that you'll be using the USB cable supplied in the package and your PC does have good working USB ports.

For transferring pictures with OS (MAC):
- Turn off camera
- Plug USB cable to camera and PC
- Turn on camera
- Connect to computer or printer will come out on camera screen
- Select the desired one
- Press MENU/OK
- "New Hardware Found" will be seen on the right lower corner
- A window will pop out with various options
- Example: "Open to View Files", "Copt to a folder"...

* If nothing like those mentioned above happened,

Double check through Computer Devices with Removable storage:
- Look for DCIM folder in any of the Removable storage
- Select 100sscam folder inside DCIM folder
- Upon opening, all pictures will be viewed

Make sure to check your MAC System for the following:
- Power Mac G3 or later
- Mac OS 9.2~10.3
- Minimum 64MB RAM
- 110MB of available hard-disk space
