In that case, don't connect 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.

My pc no longer has my pics on as screen saver,nor window7 pics.says my card reader or video card is out dated for 3D.where can i get the card?

To order a new one you will need to look up your laptop and see which video cards are compatible. Order it then replace it. Some places like fry's electronics, or maybe even best buy might carry it as well.

I just purchased an SDHC card for my camera. it says that it is the wrong format. it also says that it can not format. what next

An SDHC (4GB or higher) card will not work with your older camera. You need to purchase a standard SD card (2GB or less). They're relatively inexpensive on Amazon if your local stores no longer carry them.

THE BATRTERY runs down within 12-24 hours -- even when the camera is off.

You have an older camera, so your battery is probably getting worn down. How much of a charge does your battery hold? Batteries often lose some of their charge after sitting for a bit, and it's possible that it holds such a little charge that the charge lost while sitting is enough to drain it completely. If this came out of nowhere, because batteries lose capacity gradually, then it's a defect with the battery. Either way, the only way to solve this problem is to get a new battery. Considering the fact that your camera seems pretty nice, it's probably worth the money. I don't know of any places off hand that carry your specific battery, but some good places to look are Amazon and B&H, or even Nikon themselves. Hope this helps, good luck to you.

My macbook wont recognize my hp camera, i installed the software that came with it but it still wont even recognize that its even connected.

your camera should work fine with the built in iPhoto software, simply launch the program and connect your camera, you should be able to download your pictures immediately.

Dont have disk for pp136aa hp web cam no drivers or anything

Try one of these...

EDIT: They seem to be the same... One may be a newer version. It doesn't tell you what vesion is being installed. Seems like just basic drivers so the camera will work with other messaging / recording software, etc... Good luck!!! :)

These HP cameras were marketed by Micro-Innovations. The drivers are no longer listed on their new site. Someone on a message board I found ran accross these files still on the Micro-Innovations server. Grab them while you can and don't lose them.

Hope this helps
