Getting pictures from camera to computer

Suddenly, for no known reason, when I plug in my USB cable to get pictures from the camera to my computer, the camera shuts down. I've changed batteries, tried a different software -- nothing seems to work. Can anyone help? Thank you!!

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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

SOURCE: I have lost the usb cable plut the disc on downloading photos from my vivitar 3650 camera to my computor can you help

I didn't see any software on vivtars website for you camera. I found the manual which is at this link:

http://www.vivitar.com/ecms.aspx/2907cbb7-14d3-4f32-aa39-f710357d66f6/SupportFiles/ViviCam3750.pdf

Drivers are not required for your camera unless you have Windows 98 installed.

You will probably have to order a new CD direct from Vivitar if you need software.

There are some programs for free that you can use if you want to transfer pictures to your computer and do a few simple editing features. Kodak has one. Adobe has one as well.

It doesn't show you in the book what the camera connector looks like. You can check with Vivitar on that. If the connector on your camera is D shaped they do sell USB cable with a standard D shaped end at most computer stores.

SOURCE: cannot start camera

That simply means that the battery is dead. It lights up thru USB port as the port has charging facility. But battery being dead does not hold the charge. Change it.

SOURCE: I usually have to just plug in th USB cord

most times you dont need software installed in the computer.
With you camera plugged in and turned on, try to go to START / MYCOMPUTER and take a look. See if you can see there a drive which point to the camera.

try to connect the camera in a different usb port of the pc. that could also work.

Have you considered getting a card reader instead? The only reason to have the cable is if you want to use a TV to display your photos and videos.

I have a Kodak M893-IS digital camera. Suddenly


You can try getting an SD card reader with a USB connection. The computer will treat this as another input. You should see a file folder with JPG files in it. This will be your pictures. Just do a "copy" to another file on your computer. Several companys make these card readers. 2 are Vargus and Lexar. I purchased one for my wife's camera the other day at Walmart. It was a "Targus High Speed SD/SDHC Card Reader/Writer". It was around $8.

My DMC-f27 suddenly quit being recognized by computer


Hi,

First, make sure both ends of the USB cable are firmly connected to the computer and camera.
If no screen pops up asking to select PICTBRIDGE or PC, then there might be a problem with the cable.

I would suggest getting a card reader instead to download pictures. They are many times faster than USB cable, and they aren't too expensive. ($10.00-$70.00).

I recommend this card reader.
