I have a hp r717 camera. Somehow Picasa appeared when I wanted to download pictures and did not function. The HP wizard always opens a reoutine to download pix, but it will not come up although it says that the camera is connected to the computer by a USB cable. I uninstalled Picasa

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 Picasa or any other photo cataloging program.

I tried using my HP Photosmart 318 photo imaging software for windows, but it is good only up to XP. I now have a Vista. What is my next step to be able to use my HP 318 on my Microsoft Vista? Thanks.


As a work-around, you should try using Picasa to download the pictures off of your camera.

Picasa is a free download from Google and has many cutting-edge features for picture management. I think that you'll like it.
  • Download Picasa from their web site (click here) to your Desktop
  • Once the Picasa file has completed downloading, Open the file and follow the directions displayed.
  • Once you have Picasa installed, connect your Olympus camera. Picasa will recognize that you have connected the camera and ask you how you want to proceed.
  • Have Picasa copy the images from your camera
  • You can then use Picasa to handle the photos from your camera.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks for using FixYa and Happy New Year!

Broken lcd P R717


you can find part on Ebay under cameras for parts or repairs. Look r717, but also look into m305, m307, m407, and m417 cameras. They all use the display screen.

You need to reset the camera. I had the same problem and was ready to throw it out - HP support gave me the answer and now it works fine again.
