Question about Digital Cameras

2 Answers

I'm having trouble downloading photos to my computer with the software that came with my camera. What can I do? I went strictly by the manual on how to download pictures to my computer, and it is like my comp. is not really recognizing finepix. I have had this trouble before, all of a sudden it worked, but it is getting annoying that I have to repeat and repeat procedure. I don't think I should have to re-enter the software every time I want to download my pictures. Anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks for your help.

You do not need Camera Software to download pic to computer. Look for CAMERA or USB Storage Device in you MyComputer folder.

Your camera should show up in MyComputer as a Drive Device. If it does, just double click on it to view mem card contents. Drag and Drop or right click to Copy and Paste to your Pictures Folder or wherever folder.

Better yet, avoid these hassles forever by buying yourself a mine card reader that plugs directly into our USB port. I recommend the SanDisk Mobile Mate SD+. It is just a little larger than a USB Flash Drive and reads SD, SDHC, and MicroSD mem cards. No more unique and bulky USB cables to lug around and saves your camera battery power that otherwise is needed to view and download pics via cable.

$15 at RadioShack, Stapes, or anywhere mem cards are sold.
BTW, for maximum shot to shot response times on the TZ3, buy mem cards that specify at least a 10Megbits/sec data xfer speed. SanDisk Ultra II cards meet this spec. No need for faster more expensive Ultra III that cost more. Probably not worth buying unless you were going to buy a card anyway. TZ3 can handle SDHC(HighCapacity) mem cards to 8Gigabit. Very handy for mem hungry Movie clips.

Having the same problem with Nikon D60 on Windows XP-sp2

Try installing SP3 on your system (I'm in the process of doing this)
Actually, Nikon's software mentions that it wants SP3

on the other hand, I tried an Ubuntu live CD and saw the photos with no problem..

good luck

Trouble with downloading photos


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. The card reader doesn't care what camera took the pictures, so you can use it with any camera (assuming the card itself fits).

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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

How to take pictures with this camera -- have no instructions -- new to this -- camera was given to me -- replaced batteries -- 20 shows in view finder -- push button -- nothing happens


1. Turn the camera off by sliding the ON/OFF switch (to the right of the LCD) down to the OFF position. 2. Reinsert the batteries, making sure their polarity alternates, with the battery closest to the hinge of the battery cover pointing down into the camera and the other one pointing up. 3. Turn the camera ON. 4. Press the button on the back of the camera to select the mode. If you do nothing, then the camera is in the Hi-resolution mode. The display will momentarily switch to 20 to indicate that 20 photos are available. When you take a photo, the number will decrease. 5. Press the button on the top of the camera body to take a photo. The camera will beep when you do. 6. IMPORTANT: do not switch off the camera until you download your photos to your computer. 7. Plug in the camera to your computer with its USB cable. This will power the camera when the computer is powered and save your batteries until you can download them to you computer. 7. Install your software and follow the directions (you need to unplug your camera before you start the installation). Once you load the CD, the installation wizard should begin. If it doesn't, then your computer is not recognizing the software. Note: this software does not work on Apple OSX operating system (on my Mac), and I'm having trouble making it work on Windows XP (on my PC).

Kindly send me th link for A540 software download


Do you wish the software to download the photos from your camera? If so, as a better solution I highly recommend that you instead consider a card reader to download your photos. Card reader's are very inexpensive, much faster downloading photos from the camera, do not use the camera's batteries during download, and are much less prone to file corruption of the photos during the download.

You place the camera's card in the reader, plug the reader into the USB port, and your computer sees it as a hard drive. No software is needed. You simply copy/paste or drag/drop your photos onto your hard drive. For this simplicity, most professional photographers utilize card readers exclusively. Really, you'll save yourself a lot of trouble. Here are some examples from Amazon. Also, don't be fooled by the cost. Some of the inexpensive ones work just fine. Go by the reviews. Also make sure you get a reader that is stated capable of reading your card (particularly if you have an SDHC card)::

For international purchases, here's another source for card readers (low prices, free international shipping too :-)

No need for you to install any CD software because your camera
will be recognized automatically as a removable disk when your computer has the following Operating Systems.

For transferring pictures with OS (Windows 98/XP/Vista/2000/MAC 9.2-10.3 ):
- 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

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.

Fujifilm finepix a 201


Ok your computer should have the software needed to view the pictures already installed, so maybe you are having trouble actually getting them out of the camera and into the computer?

You may need to download the file for your operating system from here.
http://www.fujifilm.com/products/digital/download/01/index.html#windows

After installing that you should just be able to plug the camera into the computer and let it copy the photos for you. On the PC the software is called "Scanner and Camera Wizard" (on windows XP) which can be found under All Programs, then Accessories, and on Mac I photo will do tthis for you.

Good luck

Cant download photos from SLR to mates computer without cd


Yes. everytime you connect your camera to a new computer, you will need to install a driver software to ensure proper functioning of the device.

This driver is freely downloadable from the Internet.
