Copying files to the computer

I'm having a problem copying the pics from the camera to the computer. Windows XP recognizes the camera and I can select the pics I want to copy. but when it starts to copy, I always get an error message saying its impossible to copy the current image and I have options to retry, ignore pic, ignore all, or cancel. If I retry or ignore, the same thing happens, and I end up cancelling. After this, I dismount the camera and it stays frozen, until now the only thing that works is taking out the battery and replacing it. I do not think it is the camera because we have successfully copied the pics onto a macintosh. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thx Mark no pic

  It would be easier to diagnose the problem if you'd upload a picture.    Have you had similar problems with cameras that don't use batteries? And if so, how do you go about resetting them once they are unplugged? Proper resetting is critical!   Some older cameras (usually those with no batteries) have a selector somewhere near the PC cord socket, labeled "M" in the one position or "X" in the other. These stand for "Microsoft" and "OSX". Having it set to the wrong position for your PC can cause upload failures. Newer cameras work with either automatically.

I downloaded pics from camera to computer, how do I find where pics are?


When we connect camera to PC, the PC usually will recognize it as Removable Disk.
Open this folder, if there are other folder inside it, open that folder until you get your picture files. Select picture files that you want to download.
Right click > copy (or Ctrl+C).
Determine where you want to save the pictures, or you can simply make a new folder to save them. Right Click at this destination folder > Paste.
After copying process done, open that destination folder and you'll see your picture files there.

Hope this help and if you feel helped, RATE please !

Does not have usb driver


If you are using Windows XP or Vista, you do not need a driver. Just plug the USB cable into the camera and into a computer that is already on and turn on the camera. In a few seconds, Windows will recognize the new USB device and take about one minute to set it up. Then in Windows Explorer, you will find a new item in the "My Computer" listing of devices, Your camera. Treat it like an extra hard drive and explore the folders untill you find your photos. You can copy or move them to your regular hard drive just like copying from any other drvice. If you use your computer to FORMAT a card for the camera, you will have to use the camera to FORMAT the card again so the camera can save to the card.

That's with XP, right?

I'm copying and pasting. Note the bit about the drive letter -- your CD drive may actually be D: instead of E: in this example.
  1. Insert the Windows XP bootable CD into the computer.
  2. When prompted to press any key to boot from the CD, press any key.
  3. Once in the Windows XP setup menu press the "R" key to repair Windows.
  4. Log into your Windows installation by pressing the "1" key and pressing enter.
  5. You will then be prompted for your administrator password, enter that password.
  6. Copy the below two files to the root directory of the primary hard disk. In the below example we are copying these files from the CD-ROM drive letter, which in this case is "e." This letter may be different on your computer.

    copy e:\i386\ntldr c:\
    copy e:\i386\ntdetect.com c:\

  7. Once both of these files have been successfully copied, remove the CD from the computer and reboot.

Copying files to the 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.

Copying pics to my Computer


You are best if you are not already using the software that came with the camera, to transfer pictures. Either the picture is a corrupt file or you are short of hard drive space. Can you transfer pictures across instead of copying them to your pc, or do you have a card reader to see if that can copy it across.
