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.

Window 7 doesn't recognize birdcam


after plugging in the USB cable to the camera and computer you need to set the mode button on the camera to "setup". Then the USB will be recognized and you'll be able to see your drive and pictures. I had the same problem then went and re-read the instruction manual... when in doubt... READ :)

When you plug-in the camera into the USB port, what is the message?
Do you see any pop-up on the lower right hand side of the screen?

Usually the pop-up is "Device is ready to use" or USB device unrecognized if the USB is not recognized
try the camera to other USB port

My digital camera is the Kodak Easy Share C913, and when i insert the cord in the computer for photo downloads the computer does not detect it


Solution: Windows should automatically recognize your digital camera and prompt you with a list of possible actions, such as viewing the pictures stored on your memory card. Sometimes, this recognition takes several minutes, especially if you're plugging in the device for the first time. If, after waiting a reasonable amount of time, you are not prompted with actions for your digital camera, ensure that your camera's batteries are charged and that your camera is turned on, as many models require the camera to be powered in order for the computer to access its contents. If these things check out, try plugging your camera into a different USB port. Next, go to the Start menu and click My Computer (in Windows XP) or Computer (in Windows Vista and Windows 7) and then see if your device is listed under the Devices With Removable Storage section. If it is, double-click your camera's icon to interact with it. If not, try the following suggestions.

It could be that in order to use your digital camera with your computer, you must first install the software that came with your camera. If you can’t locate the software disc that came with your digital camera, you may be able to download the software from the manufacturer’s Web site.

If none of the above solutions solves the problem, you may need to enable your camera in the Device Manager. In Windows XP, click the Start menu and choose Control Panel. Click Performance And Maintenance, click System, and choose Device Manager under the Hardware tab. In Vista and Win7, click Start and choose Computer. Click System Properties at the top and then choose Device Manager from the left menu. Locate and expand the Disk Drives entry, right-click your camera’s name, and choose Enable. Once enabled, your camera should be recognized and listed in My Computer. If your camera is still not recognized, we suggest you contact your camera’s manufacturer for additional suggestions.

Photo transfer problems are as likely to be related to software as to hardware. If you use photo-editing software other than what came with your camera, check the software's documentation and Web site to see if the manufacturer supports your camera. Download and install any software updates, as well.

If your photo-editing software can't detect your camera, make sure your camera is attached, turned on, and, if necessary, switched to transfer mode. Double-click the My Computer icon and look for an icon that corresponds to your camera. If you see an icon for your camera, you know that Windows detects your camera and that the problem is related to your photo-editing software.

Go to your computer's administrative tools and find services. Check the status your camera software. Status should read automatic. I had a software conflict that turned my camera window off.
