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 any photo cataloging program.

Uploading digital photos


Hi there

The A530 is equiped with a socket that allows you to connect to a USB connection on your computer. You will need the lead that came with your camera. Look for any spare USB socket on your computer. It looks like a small plain rectangular shape, mostly with a flat white strip inside it that will match the plug on your camera's lead. Make sure your camera is switched off, then connect your lead. Switch the camera on when it is connected and your computer should atutomatically detect it. It should say "Found new hardware." If you get to this stage, you're on the right track.

Next, launch the program you installed from the software cdrom that came with your camera. This should guide you through the next stage and allow you to send your photos to your computer.

If they are important, be sure to back them up so that if your computer breaks down or is stolen, you still have your photos.

Uploading images to laptop


By default, Windows uses a 32bit FAT when formatting which is NOT compatible with most cameras. I'd suggest sticking to using the camera menus for formatting a card, unless the camera can't format one (then, if you must use a PC for formatting, make SURE you select FAT as the File System Type). I'd also recommending formatting again with the camera menus before using a card if you ever do need to format one with a PC. As for your problem with the laptop seeing the card, it could be any number of things. It's more likely related to the USB drivers. Many users report intermittent problems with USB connectivity after upgrading to SP2. A frequent solution that sometimes works is removing all devices drivers related to USB (My Computer, Properties, Hardware, Device Manager). Then, rebooting and letting Windows find and reinstall the drivers again. Sometimes, updating these drivers can work, too. You may also be seeing a conflict between other USB devices and drivers. For example, sometimes HP Printer Monitor software conflicts with USB connectivity to other devices. You may also want to try a different USB Port. If all else fails, consider a Card Reader (they're very inexpensive now -- you can probably pick up a USB 2.0 card reader for around $20.00 locally). With a laptop, you may also want to consider a PCMCIA based reader.
