    What operating system do you have on your computer? XP?Vista?Windows 7? Which camera do you have? Probably you don't need any software. What happens when you connect the camera via USB to your computer? Does a window pop up with a message, and if so, what does it say? If no window pops up, try turning the camera on only after connecting it to your computer.

Please see this article, as it describes the use of a USB card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos than directly from the camera. Note that card readers are also extremely inexpensive these days. For the A80, you'll need one that is capable of reading CF cards. Here is one example, and another from Amazon.

Need installation disc or download site for polaroid digital t730 camera


With all digital cameras the maker delivers a CD (DVD) with software to install on your computer. This makes it possible to put the pictures from the camera on any computer. On the disk(s) are drivers for all operating systems that need them. (Windows 7 and up do have all drivers for hardware that is certified by Microsoft) And there are programs to download the pictures from the camera to the PC. Sometimes the manufactures also delivers software to organise the pictures in folders and software to view or even enhance the pictures you shot.
When you lost the disk, most of the time you can get the software on the website for your brand. Sometimes you even get newer, updated software and new drivers if needed.
If you can't get software form your brand, you always can install other generic software like Ulead, Pixir, BeFunkey, Gimp, Photoshop express. Or if that is not possible you could install an external memory card reader and download the pictures via de memory card reader.

Why can't i download my pictures from my kodak easyshare camera


Before you can download pictures from a camera to a computer, you have to install the software that came with the camera. First install the software, than connect the camera and switch it on.
The computer needs to know what it should do with the new device connected to the USB port. So a driver and a program have to be in place to tell the computer, not to charge the camera, but to down;road pictures. If you lost your Kodak CD, you can download the software here:

How to download pictures from camera to laptop


before you can download pictures, you should install the software that came with the camera. On the CD are not only drivers for all known operating systems, but also the software, needed for the computer ro recognise the camera and to stream the pictures to the computer.
If you don'e have a CD anymore, try the website from the firm where the camera came from. Or use software like lightroom, gimp or Flickr

MTP USB device failed to install on Windows 7


Did you instal the software that came with your camera?
You also can download the new View NX from Nikon for free. Always first install the software, before connecting any device on your computer. Special what it is a device like a camera.
The computer can interpret a camera on an USB for: Now I nave to charge the battery. Or when you start the program to transfer pictures, now I have to download pictures, or some camera's like your D200, also cam be controlled remotely over the USB, if the correct software for that is installed.
The software windows needs to install has to be on the computer first.

MY EVISION CAMERA WILL NOT LET ME DOWNLOAD PICTURES ON MY COMPUTER


You will probably need to install the camera software before you can download pictures. The cameras often come with an installation disc. If it won't let you install the software, your computer probably isn't compatible with that disc (I hope this isn't true for you). Good luck! Der strom

I have a Nikon D70s camera. I have misplaced my copy of Picture Project the “yellow disc” which installs the software, which allows me to download the images from my camera to my computer. I have had to...


I own a nikon D40x and it doesn't need the software to download the pictures to the computer. But I'm not sure if it works the same way with your camera.
If you need the software go to this link, it says updater but they also included the link for the Full install version, install it then download the updates for the program. However you will need to register/create account for you to download the file, they will ask you for the Serial Number/License Key/Unlock Code so I suggest you look for it before you go to the site.
