Consider NOT using the USB connection.

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.

How to insert camara card to computer


If you have the original USB cable that came with the camera, there is a rubber flap on the side of the camera. Open that flap and the small end of the USB cable will fit into the plug located there.

Then take the larger end and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Depending on the computer you are using, this can be found on the front of the computer or the back. Sometimes there are also ports on the keyboard or monitor. Any USB port will do.

If you have the HP Image Unload software on your computer, simply turn the camera on. If you get a message asking to 'Select the program to launch' click 'Cancel.'

From this point the HP software will 'unload' your images on to your computer when you click 'Start Unload.'

----------
If you do not have the HP software, you need to change a setting in the camera for it to communicate with the computer.

Before you connect the camera with the computer, turn the camera on. Go to either the playback or capture menu and use the down arrow to select the setup menu (it looks like a wrench icon). Press OK.

Using the arrow keys, go to the 'USB Configuration' option and press OK.

Use the arrow keys and select 'Disk Drive' and press OK

Now connect the camera to your computer and go to 'My Computer'
The camera will appear as if it were a disk drive.
Select the camera and manually copy the image files to your computer.

I have a Canon PowerShot G9 camera. When i plug it into usb cord to dowload pictures, i get the error message "Communication Error" across the viewing screen of the camera.


The problem I believe is the sequence or flow of the connection.
With the camera turned off. Connect the USB cable to a computer USB port and the other end to the camera digital port turn the camera on by using the "Playback" button here is a diagram

You know there is an easier and better way of transferring picture files and that's by using a memory card reader. A memory card reader plugs into the USB port of a computer and the camera memory card is inserted into the reader slot. The computer then looks at this as an external Hard Drive. Both methods will need you to format the memory card after the images have been downloaded to the computer. Formatting the memory card in the camera in which it is to be used will clean the card and making it compatible with the camera both the camera and memory card can then communicate without errors.

The memory card is not showing my pictures when i plug my camera into my laptop


Hi,


Please follow the steps below for connecting the Camera to the Computer for transferring the images.

Turn the Camera ON.

Turn the Computer ON.

Make sure to Insert the Memory Stick in the Camera.

Set the USB CONNECT option in the Setup 2 Menu of the Camera to PTP. [Set the Mode dial of the Camera to Camera, press the Menu button, select SETUP-->SETUP2-->USB CONNECT-->PTP-->OK.]

Connect the Camera to the Computer using the supplied USB cable.

The Computer will automatically install the USB Driver for the Camera.

When the installation completes, an AutoPlay window will appear.

In the AutoPlay window, click the Import Pictures option.

In the Importing Pictures and Videos window, click the Import button.

If the USB connection from the camera is not recognized by the computer, disconnect the USB cable and repeat changing the USB CONNECT option to PictBridge, Mass Storage or Auto.

If the issue persists, try connecting to a different USB port on the Computer.

Try re-installing the USB Driver from the Device Manager.


Good Luck!

Just did this with my daughter and it worked:

1. Turn PC on.
2. Plug camera cable into Camera.
3. Plug camera cable USB end into computer USB port.
4. Turn on Camera... wait until camera show message 'USB, PC, Pictbridge'.
5. PC should be selected if not select by highlighting and press shutter button.
6. Press 'Shutter' button.
7. Window 'Autoplay' appears on PC. Select 'import' in Autoplay window.
8. Another window will ask you to name your picture folder. Give it a name.
9. The pictures download to the picture folder automatically.
10. Turn the camera off and disconnect cable from camera and from the PC
11. ENJOY!!

Computer does not reognize Camera


Another way of downloading images is to remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB card reader, then plug the card reader into the USB port on the computer. The computer will see this as an external memory device, you can then open the folder/s and copy the images to the computer.

USB cable broke inside camera port


Buy a portable card reader. Insert in USB port. Insert your card and download. You don't need a cable then.I just bought one for $10.49 with a $6 rebate from Radio Shack.

Olympus D535 cord won't go in computer.


YOu have 2 options to transfer images to your computer. One is the USB cable that should be supplied with the camera. There is an up and a down and the cable connector could be bent making it not fit. The second way is a card reader, the card reader also uses USB im not really sure your problem if the ports are just hidden or you just dont haev USB ports at all. Some dell systems have a little door on the front of the tower box (this sits on the floor) usualy they are in the front, a little door flips up and exposes the ports. USB is a common plug type and i think any computer made after 1998 should have a USB port.
