Downloading pics with usb drive

When I insert the usb drive into my vista os computer, I am told that the disk needs to be formatted. I believe that this would erase my xD picture card. What do I do. The files from this card downloaded perfectly to my daughter's mac laptop.

Format prompt comes due to the card's data access status.after back up your picture at MAC computer you can proceed for format (FAT 32 Recommended). Also you can use camera to format pictures. Next time it wont show format prompt

Goodluck

You should have let the download complete and then delete the pics from their location on your computer. You can try using a separate card reader to see if your pics show up. You can also take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture kiosk machine. Your pics may show up if you insert your card.

My new card w/ pics on it, when inserted into


Do not format the card....it will be erased. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. When the pics are safely downloaded, then you can format the card but it in the camera, not the computer. 36e5191.jpg

It use to have over 2000 and now its only saying


Sounds like the camera has switched to using the internal memory which is very small. Now, you need to do some things:
1. Go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions.
2..With the card out of the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions to completely erase the internal memory.
3. Insert the card, go into the memory and do the "format" procedure again. (this will erase your card so download any pics to your computer first).
4. Tell yourself that you will never use the internal memory again and that you will format your card regularly in the camera after downloads.

Hi,
Sounds like a compatibility problem related to Vista.
If your pics are stored on a camera card then i recommend that you purchase a card reader/writer and pop the camera card in that to transfer the pics to the computer.
They are very cheap at around $2( £1) and you can get them anywhere from places like PC World, radio shack etc.

RE: software installation problem


Right now I am going to go backwards----

Memory Card, when you put the card in the camera, you need to format it. With most cameras, you go to the Menu, scroll through the menu and find memory card, format, click on it and the camera will format the card for the camera.

Once formatted, you set the camera to use the memory card, also in the camera.

Now all pictures will go to the memory card.

If you have a computer with a memory card reader, you put the card in the slot on the computer and the computer will recognize it. Go to Start---Computer---double click on the memory card---your pictures should show up. Usually with Vista you will get a box that pops up after inserting the card that asks you want you want to do. Such as view files, transfer pics to a certain folder etc.

***Make sure you are using a memory card that is compatible with the camera. This does not seem to be a newer model so an SDHC card probably will not be compatible. An SD card would be. If we cannot find a drive don't fret, using a memory card you do not need the driver for the camera.

Do you have the disk? I have gone to ApexDigital website, and cannot find any drivers for the camera. They show the camera, but no downloads. I will keep hunting for you but in the meantime:

On the camera there should be a serial number, look on the bottom of the camera, if you can find one, give me all the numbers you find. I will go from there.

Don't give up yet!

New computer does not recognize pentax 33l


Optio 33L and Vista

Plug camera into USB port using the cable supplied, and switch the camera on. Computer will display the "found new hardware" sign, and ask you to insert the disk that came with the 33L into the disk drive. That done, the drivers will be installed in the usual manner. AT LEAST, THAT'S HOW I DID IT - AND IT WORKS!

Use your USB cable or a Card Reader. Read your manual to insert Date on pictures. Note date will show on pic and cannot be removed.

Best idea is to downloand you pics asap and change each pic file name to embed date taken in filename, not on the pic itself.

I recomment the San Disk MobileMate SD+ miniature Card Reader for SD and MicroSD card reading. Just a little larger than a Flash Thumb Drive. Saves lugging around a USB camera cable and saves your camera power otherwise needed to power a download via a USB cable. About $15 at RadioShack, Staples, etc retail stores selling cameras.
