Well this shouldnt happen cause if you hook a usb short cable to camera the comp should recognize your camera as a new storage device under the section my computer it should be the new drive letter all the cameras ive tested on my system always gave new drive letter

you just go into the drive there where new letter is and copy and paste photos to folder you shouldnt need software for that only if your editing photos

How do I transfer pictures from my Kodak camera to a disc


Install the EasyShare software. Locate the CD-ROM that came with your digital camera. Insert the disc into the CD drive on your computer and follow the prompts on the screen to install the software. If you no longer have the EasyShare CD-ROM, you can visit Kodak.com to download the software and then install it as normal.

Connect the USB cable to your camera. With your digital camera turned to the off position, locate the USB cable that was included with your camera and insert it into the appropriate slot located on either the side or the bottom of your camera, depending on the model number.

Connect the USB cable to your computer. With your camera still in the off position, insert the free end of the USB cable that you connected to your camera to a free port on your computer.

Turn the camera on. Once your camera is turned on, your EasyShare software will appear and it will locate your camera and sync it with the software. If the software does not begin, turn your camera off, wait 30 seconds and then turn it on again.

Select a location for your photos. Once your camera is recognized by the software, a pop-up will appear asking where you would like your photos to be stored. The default selection is the EasyShare folder but it can be changed to whatever location you would like.

Select your settings. Before being able to transfer your photos to your computer, you must select some important settings. These are important settings such as whether you want your digital camera to delete the pictures as they are being loaded onto the computer. You can also select whether or not you want your camera to automatically start transferring your photos as soon as the camera is plugged in. The options will vary depending on what type of camera you have.

Transfer your photos. Once all of your settings are selected, simply press the button that says transfer. Your photos will then begin to transfer from your camera into the folder you selected earlier.

http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Graphics/gPhoto.shtml
here is the software you can use to import the pictures from the digital camer a...I never tried it ..but I found it with recommendations for this model ...this means that the cammera not only needs a driver ...but also some software that has the features to import from device ....Being a simple and chea camera ...its probably not recognized like a storage device and that makes the automatic import impossible ....whatever ...there are software u can use...like the no 8 ACDsee that has this importing from device feature ...or about any serious picture manager ...
even with a manager the driver is still required for to be recognized by the pc ...so ..this driver I placed is for vista OS ...if you use xp you will have to get driver from the cd that came with the camera ...or let me know and I will try to find one suitable for you ...Good luck !

Computer can't find my camara


if it doesnt recognize the device it means that the driver is not compatible find a suitable driver ...this happens when the driver was for vista and you use xp ...or otherwise...or ...maybe you just do not installed it proper..
please let me know the operating system you use and the camera model ...and I will find a solution ...also ...take a better look on the camera cd sometimes it has drivers for all operating ...systems and install the right one ...
If it has its own programs for managing pictures install that too and use the import feature from the program ...if you do not have a cd ...but only the driver ..install an acdsee picture manager and use the import from device feature from there ...it has to work

I HAVE A SONY DIGI CAM MODEL DSC W-5. MY PC IS NOW UPGRADED WITH WINDOWS VISTA AND SINCE THEN IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO DOWNLOAD THE PICTURE TO PC. THE INSTALLATION CD ISSUED WITH CAMERA DOES NOT COMPITABLE...


  1. Turn on the camera.
  2. Insert the recording media containing the pictures into the camera.
  3. Depending on your camera, set the USB Connection or Transfer mode setting in the menu to the Mass Storage , Normal , or PTP .
  4. Use the USB cable supplied with the camera to connect the camera to the computer. IMPORTANT:
    • Connection through a USB hub or other USB device -- such as a printer or keyboard -- is not supported and cannot be guaranteed. Connect the camera directly to a USB port on the computer.
    • If the USB connection from the camera is not recognized by the computer, disconnect the USB cable and repeat steps 4 and 5 using a different USB Connection or Transfer mode setting. If the connection is still not recognized, further troubleshooting is available.

    NOTES:
    • The computer will automatically install the USB driver for the camera.
    • When the camera connection is established, an AutoPlay window will appear.

  5. In the AutoPlay window, click Import pictures .
  6. In the Importing Pictures and Videos window, click the Import button. NOTE: After the pictures have been imported, the Windows Photo Gallery window will appear and display thumbnails of the imported images.
If this doesn't work there is an updated driver available

The soft ware up date


I don't have enough information on your problem, to give you an intelligent answer, but if you are like me, and had purchased the camera with the original CD1 and CD2 disks, like I did back in 2001, the year when Agfa discontinued supporting their digital cameras and flatbed scanners, my CL18 was just about 1/2 off the normal price, and I figure that's why it was on sale, no support for it anymore, so the driver for WIN95/98/OSR2/WIN-XP was the last driver available, and I "suspect" that you're talking about the installation process, and if that's so, maybe I can help out.
I used the CL18 on a computer that came with WIN-XP Media Center Edition 2002, but this computer, which I bought after the other computer died on me, had WIN-Vista on it, so in order to use the CL18 digital camera to import pictures to the computer, I needed to remove WIN-Vista, which I kept on a set of Recovery disks, in case I ever want to put that back unto the computer, and I had purchased WIN-XP with Service Pack 1 on it back in 2002 I think it was, so I put WIN-XP on this computer, but I needed to download WIN-XP drivers for my computer hardware first, otherwise I may not have been able to access the Internet after installing WIN-XP to download drivers afterwards...at least the modem or DSL Cable/Modem drivers, and motherboard drivers, maybe the sound drivers and video drivers, etc. Get copies of them first for the computer that you're removing WIN-Vista from before installing WIN-XP...Maybe placing the drivers onto a CD or DVD maybe, or another hard drive, like I did with my external hard drive, which WIN-XP will "see," but WIN95 couldn't see.

When I ran the installation process with the CD that came with the CL18 camera, I saw the message where it stated that it was updating DCOM95, and/or that it couldn't update DCOM95, it also stated that the installation failed, or something like that, and if that's what you are talking about, then I'll let you know that all I did was to click on "Allow change," or whatever the message shows, but that was in the Spybot software, so if you run or use Spybot, and have the Spybot-SD Resident icon in the system tray, then go ahead and click on "Allow change," or whatever the choice is, then click on the message you see from the CL18 installation disk and let the computer reboot with the CL18 installation disk still in the CD/DVD ROM drive. 
The installation should finish ok after the reboot if you kept the CD in the CD-ROM drive.
If you can't import pictures, like using the Corel Photo House 5 software that came with my CL18 camera, then you need to make sure that the Corel Photo House 5 software isn't using your webcam driver for example and you need to choose the Twain Driver in Corel Photo House 5 software before importing pictures. 
In a couple of other posts I say how to get the Corel Photo House software to import pictures. The process of doing it the first time, after the first time, Corel Photo House 5 will use the same driver each time you start the software up, unless you choose another driver to import from another source, like a webcam for example, but basically, do the following for importing pictures:
Start Corel Photo House 5; Click on "Load photos from a digital camera;" Click on "Select source;" Click on "ePhoto CL18 TWAIN Driver [UI];" Click on "Select;" Click on "Proceed"
If the CL18 camera is plugged into the computer and turned on you should be all set to import pictures.
Anyway, the main thing is that "if" you're talking about the setup process in WIN-XP, you'll get the error message that says that it can't update DCOM95, or something like that, and it will say that the installation failed, but just click the choice there and the computer will reboot and the installation should complete, at least it did for me anyway.
One time I did need to reinstall using the Add Hardware way of doing that, and in that process it showed the CL18 driver as an available driver, and choosing that driver on the list of available drivers allowed the re-installation to work, and I needed to do that one time when I couldn't access the pictures in the camera even though the camera had previously been installed.
Hope that helps, Bernie

Missing "imagehlp.dll" error on installation


Uninstalling other makers software may remove a system file which prevents installation of Coolpix drivers from the Nikon View v5.1 CD on Windows 98SE systems. It has been reported that, when connecting a Coolpix camera to a Windows 98SE machine, the hardware wizard will not recognize the appropriate driver; this setup fails because the file "IMAGEHLP.DLL" is missing from the system. Installation will stop with an error message which mentions this file. This problem may be caused by the earlier removal of another makers software from the operating system. To solve the problem, first disconnect the camera then follow these instructions to copy the appropriate file from the Win98SE CD back to the correct directory on your computer: Place the Win98SE CDROM in the CD-ROM drive. From the Start Menu select Run, type in SFC.EXE. Select "Extract a single file". Type in IMAGEHLP.DLL to the field provided. Click start. When the next dialogue box appears click "skip". This dialog box appears: Where e:\WIN98\ should be the Win98SE CD-ROM (your CD-ROM drive may use another letter other than "e"). Copy the file to the same destination shown and a screen will appear showing that "File has been successfully extracted". Next, remove the Win98SE CD-ROM from the CD-ROM drive and replace the Nikon View 5 CD in the CD-ROM drive. Reconnect the camera. The hardware wizard should automatically detect the camera and install the driver from the Nikon View 5 CD.
