Consider 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.

It's not clear what exactly you mean. Generally, you don't connect two computers together using a USB cord. You can use a "cross-over ethernet cable" to connect the network jack of one computer to another computer. This allows transferring files and/or sharing an internet connection. If you have a wireless router you can enable Windows "File and Printer Sharing" on each computer and transfer files that way. Please provide more details of what you're trying to accomplish by connecting the computers together with a USB cable, and we may be able to give you a more specific answer.

My Windows 7 cannot recognize my Sata/usb connector


USB hard drive is a portable external storage device that works just like a conventional hard drive. The device is simply plugged into a USB port on your computer as you would connect a flash drive. Unlike a flash drive, however, a USB hard drive can store a much larger amount of data. If your computer will not recognize your USB hard drive, you can try troubleshooting steps to resolve the problem.

Plug one end of the USB cable into the port on your hard drive and plug the other end into the USB port of your computer. Ensure that both ends of the cable are connected securely. Open "My Computer" (Windows XP) or "Computer" (Windows Vista/7). The USB device should be listed as "removable disk" once it is plugged into the computer. If it is not listed among the available drives on your computer, proceed to the next step. Ensure that the data cable is working properly. Try another USB cable if you have one available. Disconnect all other USB devices from the computer as they may interfere with the operating system detecting the external hard drive. Reboot the computer if the USB hard drive is still not recognized. Plug the USB cable into another USB port and check to see if the device is detected. If you are using a USB hub, remove the device and plug the external hard drive directly into a USB port. If the computer still fails to recognize the device, the external hard drive itself may be experiencing a hardware problem. Check the status of the hard drive in the "Device Manager" window. Under Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and select "Device Manager." For Windows Vista and Windows 7, click the "Windows" button in the lower left corner of the screen, then type "Computer Management" in the search bar and press "Enter." Select "Device Manager" in the "Computer Management" window. In the Device Manager window, click the "+" sign that appears beside "Disk Drives." If the external drive is not listed, click "Other Devices" in the Device Manager window and see if an "Unknown Device" appears. The external hard drive may have been detected but the device is not working properly. If it is still under warranty, take the device to the computer store where it was purchased to have it repaired or replaced. Hope this helps.

Need an operating Manual for a 1T omega portable hard drive USB 2


There should be no need for a manual for a USB 2 External Hard Drive. Simply plug it into a USB Port on the Computer and select it with Windows Explorer. Basically, It will assume a Drive Letter other than C: or D: dependent upon how many drives you computer has. A Tower with a CD Read Only drive and a CD or DVD burner drive will have C: primary Hard Drive, D: typically assigned to the read only drive and E: CD or DVD Burner drive. Windows explorer will display all Connected Drives. If it doesn't show up there it is probably a fractured wire in it's cable or a damaged contact it the USB connector on the cable.

Usb cable has never worked to transfer pictures to computer


It could be a bad USB cable or a bad port. You can test the port by plugging in a different device. If the port tests good and the camera is connected and turned on, you most likely have a bad cable.

Connecting my new PIXMA MX700 to my computer


Please read your owners manual.

It's very simple to connect a printer, and ever simpler to read the part of the manual that tells you how.

Perhaps you should get a friend to help you. If I say "Power Cord" and "USB Cable" will you know the difference? If not, I probably couldn't explain it to you through type.

If you think you could tell them apart, then do this:

1. Make sure you have a USB cable. Most printers don't come with a cable to connect to a computer. If yours did, you'll have two cables in the box. The USB and the Power cables.
If you don't have a USB cable, you'll have to go buy one.

2. Put the CD into your CD ROM drive, follow the instructions. When the computer tells you to, plug your USB cable into the back of the printer and the computer. Plug the power into the printer. Turn the printer ON.

The computer should detect the printer. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.

That should be all there is to it.
