Turn on the Camera and connect to the USB to PC and the PC should see the Camera with the Camera being on.

USB problems then you'll have to do this...

1. Unplug the camera from the USB connector to PC
2. Click on Start
3. Click on Control Panel
4. Click on System
5. Click on Hardware
6. Click on Device Manager
7. Scroll down to Universal Serial Bus Controller
8. Expand the tree for the USB

A) Now for each one you have listed right click on one
B) Click on Uninstall
C) Repeat A-B for each one you have listed
D) Reboot the PC

When you get back into Vista or XP the system will re-install USB drivers for you.

I can't download all my images, I have 10 images that will not download. It downloads 52 (1/52 - 52/52) but the camera set up another set of pictures 1/10 - 10/10 that will not download. Can you...


Below is the standard procedure for checking for solutions. If you have a card reader available, I'd recommend removing the memory card from the camera and trying to download the images directly from it.

  1. Ensure that all cables are properly secured from the computer to the camera.
  2. Ensure that the memory card has not been dislodged from the camera.
  3. Check the camera's memory socket and the memory card for debris. A can of 'compressed air' can work wonders (typically available at any computer store).
  4. Make certain that the port connecting the camera to the computer is not damaged. Look for any bent pins in the camera's memory slot. Try replacing the camera cable. If the camera uses a USB port, try another USB port. If you don't have another USB port available, try plugging in another USB device to verify that the USB port is working.
  5. Check the power source on the camera. If you're using batteries while attempting to transfer the pictures to the PC, try changing your batteries, recharge the batteries, or use an A/C adapter.
  6. Try reinstalling the digital camera software on your computer. In most cases, reinstalling over top of the existing software will resolve this issue.
  7. Take the media out of the digital camera and attempt to download it to another computer. If all else fails, try formatting the camera media. Most newer-generation digital cameras equipped with an LCD screen have a menu option that can format your media.
Hope this helps.

Hi, I can not tranfer images from camera to computer using a usb cord. I tried 2 different cords and 4 different computers. I do not have a card reader, so please don't ask me to go purchase a card...


Emily,

We need to rule some things out. Do the USB cables you're trying to use work on other "known to be good" devices? Do not reuse any cable(s) that doesn't work, even if new. Once you have a cable that has been proven to work, try connecting the camera to the USB port on the computer again. Make sure the camera power is OFF while connecting to the computer. Only after connecting should you turn camera power ON again. You can review the whole process starting on page 147 of the manual.

If it doesn't work, it is possible that the ports you're trying to use is either 1) defective or 2) overloaded. Try connecting to a different USB port on one of the computers. If you don't have another USB port, or if it still doesn't work as expected, remove all the devices connected to the USB ports that are not needed to operate the computer. This will lower the amount of power the computer needs to supply to USB devices (some - but not all - computers will flash a message on the screen if there's too many devices connected). Reconnect the powered off camera and try again after turning back on..

If you're still having a problem, suspicion turns to the camera's USB port. Resolving a problem within the camera will likely be the most expensive fix. It took considerable restraint, but I didn't even mention the other solution ;-)

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Please let me know how to view the images from a D3000 dslr camera thro` a LCD TV having usb port


You can't. You can use the supplied video cable to connect the camera to a TV's video in connector to play videos and view images, but not the USB port. The USB is only to connect the camera to a computer.

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, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Use a Card Reader. If you are using one then you should get a different one.
If you are connecting the camera with the usb cord then it sounds like your driver is bad which you could reinstall. but if you use a card reader instead then you wont have to worry about drivers. You jsut put the card into the reader and connect it to the computer and it will allow you to see the images and download then.
I would also try connect your device to another usb port to make sure it is not just the usb port.

That should get the issue fixed for you. If not then Let me know what did happen when you tried those things and I will tell what to do next.

Good Luck,
Caleb

I have a cannon EOS 400D and i am trying to download images on to my laptop. i have the the camera plug in to the usb socket and the camera is on play back and turned on


Hey ikpoole,
What you need to do to transfer your images to your computer is first make sure you have installed the software that came with the camera on your computer. Make sure the camera is off and connect your camera to the computer using the USB cord that came with the camera. Turn the camera on and your computer should detect the camera and ask you what program you want to use to download your images, and select the EOS Utility. Your images should now download to your computer. Another way to download your images would be to use a card reader that supports your type of memory card and plugs directly into a USB port. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Hook 20d camera to computer


new dells are presently shipped with 'vista'. when you connect your camera directly to the computer is should find the camera and ask you if you want to download the images. the camera must be turned on after you connect it.you can use explore to look for the camera. alternately use a card reader for usb 2 if you have a usb 2 port. all new dells have them. download time is much shorter with usb 2.
to access 'explore' simply right click on the start icon and select explore. it will bring up a tree and you can from there find your devices and drives.
good luck

USB port with the PDC 640 camera?


The Polaroid PDC 640 digital camera connects to an available 9-pin serial port only -- it does not support the use of a USB/serial converter. However, you can use a SmartMedia Card Reader with the camera's reremovable memory to download the images via the USB port to your computer.
