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.

Why won't my hp 1080p turn on for 1sec then off and can't get it running when hooked to computer?


Most camera work that way. When you connect the camera to computer, and the camera is turned on, it will be detected and will be ready to transfer the data into computer.

The camera will NOT work as webcam and keep trasferring to computer as well.

Can't get it detected?


Turn the computer off without the external hard drive being plugged in.
plug the external hard drive in a usb port, power up, the systems post boot up will find the drive and inform windows what hardware is installed.
When windows boots up, it will look at all the hardware and find the external hard drive, when windows finishes booting up you should be able to see the drive in my computer.

Trying to copy photos to a folder using Microsoft Scanner & Camera Wizard. Camara is on and is connected to my PC with a USB cable, but the computer can not detect the camara.


First, check both ends of the USB cable to be sure that the ports and the plugs are properly seated so that the metal pins are able to transfer data. Restart Windows with the cables plugged in, and the camera should be recognized. You also MUST have the camera turned ON in order for the computer to read the fact that it is connected. If these suggestions fail, check your Microsoft Computer Management program to be sure that PlugnPlay devices are automatically recognized by your system.
Have fun with your photography!

Fe-190 can't be detected as Imaging device


If you are using a Windows computer 2000/xp/Vista
you need no software Windows has all the facilities it needs.
If the Computer cannot detect the camera when it is plugged in to the computer USB socket and switched on and set to up load.
Then there would appear to be a fault with the camera or battery.
I suggest you remove the card from the camera and try to get it read by a friend or processing station to establish if in fact the card has images/data on it.
