Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50K Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lumix z50 My friend loaned me his Panasonic Lumix Z50 to try. I shot photos and want to upload to my computer, but the computer does not see the camera. The camera is supposed to pop up with Connect to PC or something like that, but it does nothing. It does not know it's connected to the computer. Do I need to install any of the Panasonic software on my computer in order for this camera to be recognized?

FIRST YOU HAVE TO CHECK THAT YOUR PC PICKS UP THE CAMERA AS A EXTERNAL DRIVE IN MY COMPUTER. IF NOT THEN THERE MAY BE A PROBLEM WITH THE CABLE OR THE JACK ON THE CAMERA. THIS DOES GET DAMAGED IF YOU DO NOT PULL THE CABLE OUT STRAIGHT. DO NOT WIGGLE THE CABLE.

Casio ex-z50 wont switch on with memory card inserted


What type and size memory card? The EX-Z50 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. It will not work with higher-capacity SDHC cards.

I have an Exilim X-Z50 camera but craddle is missing. Is there a way of downloading photos to the computer with just the USB cable connected directly to the PC? Is their a software for this purpose.


Consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 cant upload photos!!


Did your friend use the "safely remove hardware" function when removing your card from her computer? That could corrupt your card if she didn't. Try this...take your card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk. They can usually read everything on a card. There, you can print the pics or even make a cd of them. Afterwards, format your card in your camera.

Casio ex-z50 is not recognising the memory card .. I have tried a number of SD and Mulitmedia cards .. any firmware upgrade or any other solution to this problem ?


Right click on your start Icon and select Explore and see if it shows up
there when installed prior to rebooting your computer.
Also see if you can use the USB cable that came with your camera to connect
to your computer when the camera power is turned on.
ansd connect the camera with diffrent usb port or if you any other computer then connect with the second computer because it seems to be problem with usb port.
