    Same issue here. It used to work fine and now, although Windows recognizes the camera in the usb port (and yes I've tried them all), it will not transfer pictures to the computer from the camera. I get the error "computer not connected to camera." When I try transferring from explorer, the error is different: something like "device is busy or in use."

    Since the timing of this problem occurred with the installation of a new webcam, I tried unplugging the webcam but still it won't work.

I tend to NOT use the cables that come with my cameras. They are slow, and often incompatible with whatever operating system or other software you have online.

I would simply take out the camera's memory card (XD or SD or whatever it may be,) and buy a $10 USB card reader for that chip format. It's faster, simpler, better, and you don't have to deal with the camera's proprietary software. Hope this helps!

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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

I cant upload my pics because my laptop read the device software.


You must have been supplied the necessary software along with the camera. You need to install the soft ware before your pc can recognize that u have connected this camera.
Did u install the software?

Unable to get pics from camera to computer?


Tell us more about the everything!
You habe connected to USB cable from camera to Computer - Yes?
Switched on the Camera and set to 'Upload - Yes?
If you have installed the software disk- uninstall it and let the Computer sort it- which it can.
Are you using an external card reader- which is preferable to uploading from camera by the way.
Just tell me more.
