Question about Cameras

1 Answer

When I connect the cable from the computer to camera and turn the camera on the LCD screen reads BUSY. I have never had this problem before and have uploaded hundreds of times from this camera. At first I thought it was the PC but same problem when I tried a different PC. Neither of my PCs has a memory card reader. Thanks for any guidance! Beverly

    Please state the make and model of your camera. Also, which operating system are you using on your computer and have you downloaded/installed/updated any software recently or made any hardware changes? (Although you've tried it on a different pc, it doesn't eliminate the possibility of a conflict on your usual pc).

Purchase a separate card reader. They're incredibly cheap at Walmart.

    thanks but it means the camera is malfunctioning and I want to know how to fix it

    Actually, the camera is functioning normally. Windows updates change the registry every time. Sometimes, these changes affect our equipment such as your camera. You could spend hours tracking down the driver downloads, updates, firmware, etc. or you could just get a separate card reader. Professional photographers never use the camera because of the problems I've stated...they always use a card reader.

Image transfer


Try restarting your computer or try it on a different computer, "Busy" usually means something is preventing your computer from reading the camera. If that does not help,try calling Radio shack or Staples.

Camera screen says busy when I connect to the computer


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.

Try changing the "communication" setting on the camera from "PC Computer" to "PTP"
Menu > Tools2 (wrench/hammer/2) Communication = Print/PTP

Loading photos to computer: error message says device is busy or not connected


I wish I could tell you what I did. ALl I did was unplug the cable several times from the computer and the camera. I used a duster to blow out any dust particles in the connection areas. I turned the computer and the camera on and off several times. It finally worked.

This is not a direct solution, but I find that my image transfers are much faster when I pull out the CompactFlash card and put it in a card reader to pull the imagery off.

With respect to the actual problem, try "rebooting" your camera (switch off, then on) and/or reseating the USB connector.
