Try Menu -> Setup Menu -> USB Configuration.

I treat my camera as a Disk Drive so the files show up in
File Explorer and open in IrfanView or can be moved to my
hard drive.

If neither the Camera or Disk Drive option for USB config
work, get a card reader and transfer the images that way.
Using a card reader is the preferred method for digital SLRs
where larger files from larger capacity cards are being dealt
with.

Why can't I upload my photos from my finepix s1500 onto my mac? It opened the files in my iphoto but they showed up as blank boxes and "Error downloading images - iPhoto cannot import your photos...


Is this a new problem - that is, did it work in the past? Are you trying to import jpeg or raw?

First thing is to see if it is iphoto or the camera that has a problem.

Try uploading the images to another computer (try a PC - not that it is better, but PC is different). If the images can be seen & read there, the images are likely fine and iphoto may need an upgrade to read the format from the finepix s1500. Alternately, try copying the photos from your memory card (use a memory card reader) to your hard disk. See if another application can see the images (even use a word processor to import image), or e-mail the image to yourself and then use your web-browser to see the image.

If the camera images can't be read by multiple computers/multiple readers, then it may be that your memory card is corrupted.

My SD card won't allow me to upload photos on to


This question comes up several times a day here in the camera section at Fixya. But please note, it's very hard to troubleshoot individual software problems online, and it likely is a software issue.

Please don't take the following as a sales pitch as it's not, but please see this article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 cant upload photos!!


Did your friend use the "safely remove hardware" function when removing your card from her computer? That could corrupt your card if she didn't. Try this...take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk. They can usually read everything on a card. There, you can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Afterwards, format your card in your camera.

Digital camera that will no longer connect to the computer.


I don't know about your "picasa" software, and the importing procedure, but you could simply plug your card into the SD slot on your PC, and it will show up as a 'removable drive' located in "my Computer". You can open it and simply copy/paste the photos directly to any folder you wish. In other words, you don't need any specific software to import photos, and to me it's a much simpler process.
If you don't have a card reader on your PC, you can buy a USB to SD adapter to plug into your USB port for $15 +/-

Upload pictures to the hp photosmart 435 digital camera


You can do it through Windows Explorer.
Plug in your camera via USB cable to PC. Make sure it gets detected. Right click on the START button and select Explore. In the left hand pane, if you scroll down, you will see your camera listed as a drive (usually after the DVD/CDROM drive). Click the (+) next to the entry to expand the folders. (Copy the images you want to import into the camera from the PC location first). Now simply locate the folder in your camera drive that stores pictures, right click and paste them.

Please take a moment to assign a Fixya rating if you found this solution helpful.

Memory card malfunction...


If the photos are important the first thing you want to do is get a memory card reader and use it to get the pictures off the card. A SD card reader can be found for about $5 bucks online and it will let you simply COPY and paste the pictures onto a folder on your computer. Make sure you COPY and not CUT because in case something goes wrong during the transfer you won't lose your precious photos.

It is possible that the camera driver is corrupted or deleted on your computer. Honestly it is not worth the hassle to deal with the camera drivers... it is much easier (and faster) to transfer the photos using a card reader.
