I would like to download pics from a digital camera to my computer but the computer is old. I see no port for digital card


Do you have the CD that came with your digital camera?

IF so, put it in your optical drive, and install the software.
This CD contains the drivers for your camera.
Drivers allow your computer to 'communicate' with you camera.

Now obtain the correct USB connector that plugs into your camera. Should be a male Micro, style of USB male plug,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_types_2.jpg

The plug all the way to the left in the photo.

They sell USB cables that have this style of male USB plug on one end, and the usual USB A style on the other end of the cable.

Male. The male USB A style, is shown all the way to the right in the photo.

Looking at the usual style of USB plug, compare it's size to the Micro USB plug.

Yes, the female version of that plug is on your phone.

There is also a kit made by Philips, that has 5 different adapter ends of the USB style, in the kit.

The adapter ends just plug onto a male USB A style end.
The kit comes with a Male A USB to Male A USB cable.
It's rolled up on a tiny reel that is about 1 inch wide, and is retractable.
You just grab the ends of the cable, and pull out the length of cable you need.

This gives you an idea of what I'm referring to,

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Emerge-Tech-Retractable-USB-2.0-A-Male-to-A-Female-Cable/12575359

With the software from your camera installed on your computer, and the USB cable plugged from your camera to your computer, you are able to download.

Some camera's have it so you turn the camera on, and open the shutter. Your camera may differ. Check your camera user guide.

Another way is to buy an All-In-One card reader.
Plug a USB cable into it, and your computer.

This is an example,

(Scroll down the page to watch the animated gif demonstrating the card reader. Right above the large, red Ultra 3 Year Warranty heading)

How to hook up our new computer


Fortunately, the cables will only fit into a matching port. If the end of the cable is USB, plug it into a USB port, for example. The shape of the cable end will basically tell you how to hook it up.

Don't know how to setup printer or hook to computer


Hello calbj5, Since you didn't provide a make /model computer or printer..all I can provide is general guidelines for you.. Your printer will have a few features in that you will need to determine what fits your system best.. Many newer printers use a USB port to communicate with the computer.. This is a modular type plug ( one end will match the plug on your printer ) and the other end will be plugge dinto any available USB port on the back of your computer, ( older systems used what they call a D-Type cable assembly ) and if tha is what you require, you willl need to get that cable. Like I said.. most newer style printers come with the USB type cable as standard. You will also find the power cord provided with your printer..One ened plugs into the back or side mating plug of the printer and the other to your power receptacle ( hopefully you are using a surge protector set up)
Once you have both cables hooked up and plugged in.. you've probably been provided with a CD that came with your computer as well as instructions for loading the drivers on that CD ( most of the time) you just insert the CD into your CD player and it wil ask a few questions and self load.. Please let me know if this gets you going or youneed clarification.. It's always a good idea to provide brand and model numbers in your questions.. That helps us in helping you.. Good Luck !

Headphones with mic / external speakers


Does your computer have front audio ports? If so, you can just plug it in there. Otherwise you need a single male 2 dual female converter to plug into the speaker port.

I have an RCA HD flat-screen TV and just bought the rt2770 system. An orange coaxial cable was included, which I hooked up. There's also a white short (eight inches or so) cable, with a straight end and an...


The most likely explanation for your problem is that the coaxial cable that gave you does not have a thick enough core for your television. It might be RG-56 which has a smaller core than a larger RG-6. I will need to know more information before I can be of further assistance.

All The Best,
