My GE 1050 Digital Camera is not recognized by my PC for downloading the pictures when I use the USB port. My Kodak instantly is shown. What's my problem? I've followed the manual to the T several times. It's very frustrating.

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. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Kodak EasyShare C613 not able to connect through USB


I have Kodak EasyShare C613 camera. I have some nice pictures on the memory card. My WinXP recognizes the camera, but won't find any drivers for it. So camera is detected, software running, but i'm not able to transfer the pictures, because I can't connect to camera. Any ideas to solve this?

Hi, Most present day digital cameras are recognizable by a Windows PC as an external removable drive. You have to connect the camera using a USB cable (in some case, a firewire cable) to any of the USB ports of your computer. Give your machine a second or two to recognize and auto-install the needed drivers/software. The PC normally auto displays content of the camera (now recognized as possibly drive "E" or something). Thereafter it is a matter of copy/paste or drag-0n-drop to your preferred folder in your PC (more often My Pictures inside My Documents). Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turnedout or should you need furtherinformation. Good luck and kind regards.

I had the same problem. Is there a Memory card in? If there is one it probably is corupted. Happend to me. If it isn't try taking it out and puting it in the port on your machine.

I have connected my FinePix digital camera to my Windows PC and I still can't view the images on the SmartMedia or xD-Picture Card. What should I do?


If the images on a SmartMedia or xD-Picture Card fail to appear when the camera is connected to a Windows PC, one of the situations listed below may apply. 1. There may be a problem with the SmartMedia or xD-Picture Card. Check that the images can be viewed on the digital camera. If the images cannot be viewed on the digital camera, gently wipe the gold colored contact area on the SmartMedia or xD-Picture Card with a soft cloth and then check again. 2. "PC Camera" may be selected as the USB setting on the digital camera. Change the USB setting to DSC or select DSC in USB MODE. * This only applies to models with a USB Setting or USB MODE option in the SETUP screen. 3. Does the LCD monitor on the digital camera show that the USB connection is active (USB, DSC or a USB symbol with an arrow is shown on the LCD monitor)? If not, the digital camera and PC may not be connected correctly. Check the items listed below. a) Restart the PC and reconnect the USB cable. b) If the PC has multiple USB ports, connect the cable to a different USB port. If steps a) and b) have both been tried and there is still no USB connection indicator displayed on the LCD monitor, there may be a problem with the digital camera or USB cable. Contact an authorized Fujifilm service center and ask them to check the digital camera together with the USB cable. Refer to the Digital Equipment Repair page for information such as the procedure for requesting checks and the locations of authorized Fujifilm service outlets. 4. The USB driver may not be installed correctly. Download the USB driver from the Fujifilm general downloads web page and re-install the driver. 5. The card may not be recognized correctly if the camera is connected to an added USB interface board or via a USB hub. Always use a factory installed USB port and connect the camera directly to the USB port on the PC.
