Without the HP Image Zone Software you will only be able to view the photo inside it on your computer but wont be able to transfer it to your computer, so you really need to install that software to your laptop or better yet use a card reader where you can out the memory card of your camera and that is the easiest way to do the photo transfer to your laptop.

Tried to upload photos from my photosmart E217. it says my camera is in use and it aint.. it wont connect. the cord is in right. how can i upload the photos.


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.

Battery problems seem to plague HP cameras! Mine did the same thing, and resetting the battery (not just replacing) seems to have done the trick. See if these directions apply to your particular model. If not, go to the HP website and check the FAQ's for your model. That is how I was able to solve my HP Photosmart battery problem.

Go out to hp.com and click on support then updates and find your camera and download the latest updated software. I have several hp devices including one camera, and have had to download updates for all of them, The discs which come with equipment are made up before the release of the equipment, needless to say by the time you get it, the disc has long been updated.
