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 such as Picasa.

SOURCE: computer won't recognize camera download

go to Canon's website and find the most recent version of the software that came with the camera. If that doesn't work then uninstall everything again, verify the device is not in your device manager anywhere then start over but DO NOT plug in the camera until you've upgraded to the most recent software version. Once fully updated plug it in and see what happens, should work.

Camera is connected with USB and I don't see software to install


The problem is that you need to install the software before you connect the camera for the computer to auto recognize it.

If you dont have a disk that came with the camera to install before connecting the usb cord, go to the internet and search for the manufacturers website and download your software instead.

Download the software to your computer and follow the prompts for installing it. Then connect your usb cable. if the computer does not auto recognize the camera after the softwares been installed then you have a problem.

Immediate solution is to buy a card reader and use it to download all images via your USB port. I suggest using Picasa3 (free software from Google) for the downloading and organization of your images, but other software works as well. Direct camera to computer download have been a longstanding problem as computers change (e.g. vista) and camera software doesn't.

SAMSUNG 350SE PROBLEMS


THERE ARE A COUPLE OF WAYS TO GO ABOUT THIS PROBLEM. THERE ARE SOME PHOTO PROGRAMS THAT ARE PRETTY GOOD AT RECOGNIZING CAMERAS TO DOWNLOAD YOUR PICTURES. THEY ARE WINDOWS PHOTO GALLERY AND GOOGLES PICASA YOU DO HAVE THE PROPER CABLE TO CONNECT YOUR CAMERA TO A USB PORT ON YOUR COMPUTER? THAT'S A MUST. OK, ABOUT THE SOFTWARE. TRY GOING ONLINE TO THE SAMSUNG SITE AND ENTER 350SE AND SEE IF THEY DON'T HAVE THE SOFTWARE YOU NEED ONLINE THAT YOU CAN DOWNLOAD. MOST CAMERA MAKERS HAVE THERE SOFTWARE ONLINE. WINDOWS XP AND VISTA HAVE QUITE A LOT OF CAMERA SOFTWARE PRE INSTALLED. YOU MIGHT TRY SHUTTING DOWN YOUR COMPUTER, THEN CONNECTING YOUR CAMERA AND THEN BOOTING YOUR COMPUTER AGAIN AND SEE IF YOUR COMPUTER RECOGNIZES YOUR CAMERA. IT'S A CHANCE WORTH THE TIME. HOPE THIS HAS GIVEN YOU SOME IDEAS. NEED MORE HELP, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

Download movie by Kodak Easyshare


Instead of using the software... Try uninstalling the software and use the Microsoft Scanner and Camera wizard to transfer photos/video to your computer. It should recognize everything on your camera, and then you can copy and paste the photos/videos into whatever folder you specify. In my experience, Kodak's EasyShare software was able to recognize .MOV movies. If your computer is slow, you might want to wait a while for all the processing to be done and check if the videos were recognizeD
