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.

When I turn my camera on now it says "no image",A child pushed every button on every menu item I think.Before this happened I had taken about 60 pictures and most of them had the protection lock...


I had success with this:
1. Remove the memory card and then connect the memory card to computer with a card reader, or insert the memory card to card slot if there's any on computer.
2. Download asoftech photo recovery program from

3. In asoftech photo recovery program, scan the memory card and recover your photos.

You may try this photo recovery which helped me before. You can download trial for free

Please be noted that your phone memory should show as a drive letter in your explorer, if not, you need to take out your memory card and connect using a card reader, or plug-in to card reader slot if there's any on your computer.

''SYSTEM ERROR'' & How can I retrieve back images? URGENT. Please.


Sorry for the late reply. You should take the memory card out of your camera first and connect it to another comptuer(via a card reader or so), you are possibly to recover the lost photos with so-called photo recovery software but it's not 100% sure. Well, since you failed to mention the OS you are running, I'll recommend you have a try of Wondershare Photo Recovery, a program equipped with both Windows and Mac versions. For Windows OS, download here. If you are running Mac OS X, get the program from this link.

Step-to-Step Instruction:

1. Download and install the trial version on your computer, then connect your camera memory card to the computer (I assume you are using Windows). Start Wondershare Photo Recovery and select the drive letter that assigned to camera memory card.
2. Then choose the file type (all, photo, video, music) click "Star Scan".
3. Now the scanning process will start automatically to look for the deleted items. You will then get a list of all recoverable ones.
4. Preview the photos. If your deleted ones are found, then you need pay to get the activation code. And click "Recover".

Tips:
1. Take the free trial version before you buy.
2. Before your deleted items are recovered, do not take more photos or videos.

I hope you good luck,

Problems downloading photos from camera


Has this been happening all the time since you got the camera?

My guess is that If the camera starts up again after powering off, it probably isn't the battery.

Can you try downloading only half of the images at a time? I'm thinking it may go into sleep mode after awhile if you're downloading a lot of photos. What format are you using, jpg? RAW? raw are really big files. What's your megapizel size?

I just purchased a Sakar digital photo frame keychain. I downloaded 22 photos from my Documents displayed on Active Images Express but from there is where I'm having trouble getting the photos to the...


I feel your pain. Go to their web site and download a readable manual http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.sakar.com/images/resources/thumbs/12690%2520black.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.sakar.com/p-169.aspx%3Fcategoryid%3D155&usg=__UCOoniXB9VJe9zn80S4X1J8mj7o=&h=120&w=104&sz=9&hl=en&start=8&um=1&tbnid=5j97XYF3RmFbdM:&tbnh=88&tbnw=76&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dsakar%2Bdigital%2Bphoto%2Bframe%2B12490%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1T4GGLL_enUS305US305

The key is to hit the send photos button in the upper left hand corner of the main page. that will open up the photo viewer. Once there the instrutions actually make sense. going to select Photos and opening active image express will not down load the pictures, you have to get to the photo viewer v2.3. the manual is correct you just have to read if very carfully.

Good luck

Samsung SGH-D900i download to PC problem


This works for my D900 to get to the memory card however, I cannot access my other folders, only the memory card.

In your phone, go to

Settings -> Phone Settings -> USB settings -> And then select 'Mass storage device'

Now the phone memory card should appear as a USB flash drive in the 'My computer' window.

You can use this to access your data on the memory card.

Please get back to me if this doesn't work.
