You don't need any.

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.

    One problem with older devices is that as computer operating systems evolve, drivers may not keep up. The latest drivers I can find for the Largan Chameleon is for Windows XP. I have no idea whether it will work with Windows 7. If you want to try it, you can get it fromhttp://driverdownload.pbworks.com/Largan...

Cant get camera to download photos on computer


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.

Hi, I have a Vivitar 3750 camera. My software disk is for windows XP. I bought a new computer Windows 7. Is there a free download for the software for window 7? Thanks


To my knowledge there is not. The software you have for the camera as you found out is not compatible. Windows 7 will have imaging software built in which leaves the only problem being getting the images from the camera to the new PC's hard drive. This can be accomplished using a memory card reader, the computer then looks at this reader as an external hard drive. You can then download the memory card files to a folder on the computer and ask Windows 7 to open the file folder. This should one selected file type thumbnails of your pictures. Personally I don't use the camera software at all. I use Photoshop to handle my photo's that and a memory card reader so I can use any one of my four digital cameras. I'm sure Photoshop 7 has imaging programs in the early versions it was called "Paint"

Have old Olympus D-510 and Camedia Master 2.5 Software. Used software back with old Win98, then new computer to Win XP, downloaded update for 2.5 to work with XP. Now have another new computer with...


Your friend is correct...you could cause problems trying to install an old software program on Windows 7 (although it probably would just reject it). Windows 7 sometimes comes with photo editing software already loaded. If not, there are free programs you could download (use Google to find them) or you could come into the 21st century, shell out $99 and buy a copy of Photoshop Elements which will open up a whole new world to you! Does your camera use a memory card? If so, the best way to download is to use a separate card reader. See the picture of one I've included. Also, you might want to consider upgrading to a new camera....The new ones are awsome!

I received an Emerson 10 x 25 Digital Camera Binoculars as a gift. I followed all the instructions, installed the drivers and the photoimpression5 from the enclosed disc. The download photo does not work....


Hi Brian,
Try this, it may work.It will tell you whether or not it is the Camera or the Software.
Your camera, as far as the computer itself and Windows XP is concerned is a 'DRIVE'.
Try the following steps:
0 Go to the desktop of the computer and in a blank spot right click the mouse and using the
menu CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON THE DESKTOP. LABEL IT "EMERSON PHOTO TEST"
1 Unplug the camera from the computer
2 Un-install the software.
3 If there are no pictures in the camera. Shoot some.
4 Turn the camera OFF.
5 While the camera is OFF, connect the it to the computer using it's cable.
6 Turn the camera ON (you should hear two musical notes telling you that it is connected.
7 Set the camera to the view mode as though your were looking at pictures on the screen on the camera back
8 There should appear a box on the screen. The first item in the box should be highlighted.
It will say "Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard" Click on that.
9 Follow each step of the wizard and deposit all of the pictures into the folder " Emerson Photo Test" Don't Erase the photos from the camera if it asks you.
10 Shut off the camera and disconnect it
11 Open up the folder on the desktop. At the top of the folder on the right select files view to Thumbnails.
If your cable and camera are OK, the photos will be there.
12 To Test PhotoImpressions5, to see if it will view the photos without crashing your computer.
Reinstall it and open the folder on the desktop.
One additional thing. If your Windows XP is not fully up to date, you should download The Service Packs and install them until you get to Service Pack 3.
To check which service pack you have now, if any, go to My Computer" and view "System Information" it will tell you which Service Pack you have.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Got olympus camedia C310 and just bought new laptop running windows 7, have loaded the camedia software but cant copy new photos from camera to laptop, laptop doesnt seem to recognise camera - does nothing...


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 the free Picasa program ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I have the camera and plug but no cd


When you connect the camera to the computer, it probably creates a USB flash drive in My Computer - you should be able to view and copy the photos from there. You could also check Vivitar's Website to download the OEM software, or Download.com for some generic photo-editing software.

DMC-FZ18...unable to download photos off card....have loaded software . taken out other photo software , still unable to download .. Do everything right up to where it says prepare for aquisition...


Have you tried Picasa? Free from Google. Does your PC see it as a drive? Are there proprietary drivers for the camera? Try using a USB hub instead of the USB ports on the PC.
