Digital Camera All I have to do is put the memory card into the CPU to download the pictures. I have never had to use a CD to install a programe for the camera. The computer has suddenly decided I should re-instal the programme. Any ideas?

In view of your description it looks like the computer is asking you to instal the software for the Card Reader not the camera. Does this help you?

Need installation disc or download site for polaroid digital t730 camera


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.

How do i put the pictures on my computer without installing the program through the cd?


You didn't specify the make and model of your camera, so I'm going to assume it uses a memory card of some type.

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.

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this camera picture recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

I have a fugifilm finepix j20 digital camera ... i believe there is a memory card installed for extra photo storage ... but is it possible to recovery deleted photos with just the installation disk? Or do...


First take the memory card out of the camera. Pictures that have been deleted are probably still there, but will be overwritten if you take any more pictures on top of them.

Your camera is not able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try the one at THIS LINK

If the pictures are very important to you, you might want to seek help from an experienced person.

Cant get pictures off camera


You need recovery software to access the pictures.
This is free for private use:

You can't use the software with the camera directly, so you also need a card reader that can read XD or SD/HC cards, depending on which type of memory card you are using in the camera.
Install the software on your computer, connect the card-reader to the computer, put the memory card in the card-reader and run the program. Follow the instructions in the program.
When images are successfully downloaded to the computer, you will have to format the card in the camera.

Turn off CPU, Unplug Power cable, And all usb devices, let it sit for about 20mins. Plug it all back in. Turn on the CPU! Also make sure if your device requires "DRIVERS" or if you have a CD download and install that before anything.
