Question about Polaroid T831 Digital Camera
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, such as Picasa.

Had a similar problem...missing some pictures and hanging up during transfer. Check under Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs to make sure Microsoft .Net Framework is at version 2.0, Service Pack 1. If not, you can go to this web page to find a url to download the proper .net upgrade. Worked for me.

1.As stated above... buy and use a card reader, is cheap and easy to work with.
2.Under the settings, on the camera, check the communication tab...you have: Normal and Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP).Depending on your computer configuration and OS (Mac, Microsoft, Linux) sometimes PTP is not fully integrated, or does not fully work, PTP is mainly designed to comunicate with "no host" devices, like printers.Try them both and see if makes a difference.
3.Update the firmware (follow the manual recommendations)

Hello and welcome to FixYa
Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.
This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.
I cannot speculate as to what is wrong with your camera but this solution should bypass the problem and enable you to copy your pics again.

SOURCE: Please tell me why didn't
Check to see if all your drivers are updated. Check to see that your volume button is up, and not muted. Im sure this will help out. Good luck. Your removing some sort of memory stick to your computor? or tranfering from a RCA cable, Check you drivers.
