    It would help if you provided the make and model number of the camera and the operating system that you are using on your computer.

The support page for this camera has a number of useful files to download.
One of these files is the user manual, that explains how to put the camera into PC mode and how to retrieve the photos off of the camera starting on page 76.

Another file of interest is a firmware update that available for this model of camera.
Finally, apparently the camera came with ArcSoft software that needs to be installed on your computer to help with retrieving the pictures from the camera.

How do I download pictures from alcatel one touch cell phone


If you use the same cord that you charge with to plug into the computer it will prompt you as to what you would like to do. Download pictures would be your choice. The USB side goes to the computer. The mini USB goes to you phone just as if you were charging it. By the way....this method will also charge your phone.

My problem is i cant down load my picture to the computer any more


IF you have plug-n-play capabilities, you also need a USB cord that goes from the camera to the computer - Many have USB ports on the front, now.

1) Plug the USB cord into the computer.
2) Plug the USB cord into the camera.
3) Turn the camera on (some cameras have a setting they need to be on to transfer pics - make sure you're set on that)
4) The computer should find the appropriate drivers and programs to read the pictures on the camera.
4a) If having them on the computer is enough for you, make sure the "delete when transfer complete" box that will be in most programs.
4b) Make sure the pix will download to the folder you want them two.
4c) if you want to make an album/folder for the set of pix from the camera, do so now (program prompts should show you how. If not, hit "HELP") - I usually just use the date in reverse - Feb 20, 2008 would be "20080208" - keeps 'em sorted in order.
5) Click GO, SUBMIT, TRANSFRER, or whatever your program calls it.
6) Turn off camera when all are downloaded.

The program should probably open the folder into which you downloaded the pictures.

I may have missed a step or two, but it should be fairly easy to figure out. You can leave the USB port cable plugged in, if you have enough ports, then all you need to do is connect your camera and turn it on.


thanks.

When I plug in my camera to my computer the screen goes blue??


Have you loaded the Kodak software? If not, the computer may not know what to do so it locks up. You should be able to hot sync the USB cord to the computer, turn on the camera, and press the Share button. Caution: plug the cord into the camera FIRST--before you plug it into the USB port. Otherwise the camera could gets a surge from the computer which could zap it. Good luck.

My camera won't be recognized when it's hooked up...


Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

I have a Samsung L100. Was it suppose to come with a usb power cord? I cannot plug it into my computer at all.


The USB cord is plugged into your charger. It is the same cord. Just unplug it out of the plug that goes into the wall and plug it into your computer. I know, I have the same camera and found it by mistake. No where in the directions does it tell you to take the cord from the charger. Try this and let me know if this works. Mine came right out of the plug that goes into the wall.

Screen goes black when a/v cord connected


I had a bad cable on mine. Once you plug the cord in the camera controls will appear on the screen. If you get a hold of Sony they can get you a new one.

You might be able to find a new one at a computer store depending on what connection goes to the back of you camera to get it to work (like a mini jack).

Polaroid i733


On my computer Xbox I have to have a driver for the camera installed on the computer. Without installing the driver the computer does not compute the new hardware. If you don't have a driver which comes with the camera. Try to browse the internet for a driver to fit your individual camera, or installs a wizzard to download pictures from your camera. Once the driver is installed when you plug in your camera to the USB the wizzard should prompt you what you want to do with your pictures. Both of the computers I have have to have a driver or program loaded to the computer before it will let me download from the digital camera?? Other than that, Don't know.
