    your comments are very general and little more thatn what I know and have tried; do you have anythinng specific?



    the JDC 230 is a child's camera; no removable card

    it does not appear as an additional drive on either Windows 7 or XP

    it seems ot only be accessible thru custom software ArcSoft Photoimpression 5, which came with the cameras

    yes I installed it

    'yes the cameras have all been attached by 3 different cables

    all say "connection error"

  • phil_adam728 Jan 01, 2011

    I have tried this with three cameras using the thee different cables (one came with each camera) on three different computers so while it is possible it is unlikely. The computers have known good USB ports as other devices work on those specific ports.

    Time to move on; I will just trash the cameras and get better ones for my grandkids.

    In your case I think you installed the software but not the driver..go back to the manufacturer's site and look for the driver for it ..and run the driver ..the driver should also be available on the disk that came with the camera ..so open the disk by explore it ..and look specially for the driver folder ..The software is just a photo manager or so ..and will not see the camera without the drive r..The driver is the one making the connection ..
    there is another possibility ..where the camera do not need a driver and it is considered as a self installing in windows..but if you are running windows xp sp1..this will never happen ..I had issues with automate drivers in windows xp sp1 before..It will work if you upgrade to xp sp3 ..or windows 7 ..the issue is that it should have driver in windows but early editions does ot have it ..
    another action ..if you think you installed teh driver but it still does not finds the device .is to get to control panel and run the add new hardware wizard....select already added..(keep your camera on and plugged in usb all this time ) and let the wizard find the driver in your system and install it ..You can also insert the disk ..just in case the driver is on the disk but not in the system ..

    OK ..I found this driver and it seams that will work , cause it is a generic driver for all their cameras..
    just download it ..unzip from archive , and run it into the system ..and connect the camera after that and restart ..
    there are some directions about how to install it ...but I tried it in windows xp and it seams to install well ..it may say that didnt passed the windows signature check ..and click for to install anyway ..This is a generic driver and may not have a signature..
    After installing just connect the camera and let the windows look for the driver and install it ..(run the wizard for it ) ..
    let me know in a comment if ti worked ..so I know and recommend for other users of this manufacturer..
    remember this is just a driver for to make connection ..you will still need the software for managing photos..so install them both ..(anyway after the driver installed it may show the camera in the my computer folder as a drive )

If the driver was installed with success the camera will be seen like a drive (removable storage device ) in MY computer folder..Just pay attention when you connect it if it says device installed and ready to use..If it says so it means it work ..
If the camera do not have a memory card on it ..it may be a little tricky to get the pictures if it is not seen like a removable device ..Take a look in the disk that came with the camera and see if there is any other software beside the driver ..It may require a photo manager to get the pictures from its internal memory ..If it hasd..open it and click on import pictures..select the camera by name and import ..
you can also use the windows movie maker to import the pictures and than save them to the desktop from there ...same thing ..import from device ..select the camera by name and go for it ..or use ACDsee 9 as photo manager cause it has a import from device ..feature..(download it from the net ) ..
The only issue that may occur is the driver not to fit with the operation system ..but in this case it will refuse the installation ..so I dont think is the case..
In the last resort ..if nothing seam to work ..use the memory card to store the picture on ..and after that use the card directly in the card reader of the laptop (or desktop ) and copy files from it ..

    I was aware that it do no have a driver ..but not about the manager ...it make sense..tale a look on the camera's display when you connect it ..and if it asks to choose pc connect or something like that confirm the connection ..
    after that in the software choose to import from device ..

    My daughter received a Jazz JDC230 for a present. We have installed the software and driver according to instructions and also downloaded an updated driver from their website. When we connect the camera to the computer via USB, the computer make a noise acknowledging the connnection, however, when we attempt to use the software to access the photos she has taken it says there is no connection. The camera is not visible in the "my computer" section as an additional, removable driver, either.
    Currently, this camera is looking like a piece of junk.
    It is NOT a problem with the cable, it is NOT a problem with the USB port.
    It is NOT a problem with the computer, it is NOT a problem with the operating system.
    Is MOST DEFINITELY IS a problem with either the sofware, the driver and/or the camera itself.

Hello
Does not fount any software of jazz jdc230, However you can download pictures by this way:
Run the software that came with your camera. Pop the CD into your computer and go through the setup steps. The only way you'll be able to transfer is if you have the software installed. If you bought the camera used or, for one reason or another, just don't seem to have the CD, you can probably find a used or maybe even a new one on eBay. You might be able to find it somewhere else as well.
Connect the camera to the computer. Let's face it, the pictures aren't going to the computer if there is no cord to connect them. Most of the time, you'll hear a sound or something will pop-up if the camera is connected properly and working.
Sync the camera to the computer and transfer the pictures. With most camera software, as soon as you connect the camera to the computer and it recognizes it, something will pop up asking if you would like to sync the pictures to the computer. After that it's pretty self-explanatory. If nothing pops up or it never was supposed to pop up in the first place, open the camera program. Most likely you'll be able to find your way from there. If not, read your camera manual. It should tell you even more than this how-to.
Another option is to buy a Memory Card Reader. They will go by the name " 6 in One, 12 in one, USB Reader Writer or Flash Memory Card Reader Writer. They allow all memory sticks and cards to be recognized by your computer. On Windows XP, you just plug it in and find it as another drive on My Computer. Hope this helps, if so do rate the solution

    This response of camera shows that the USB connector of camera may gone damage/loose and needs repair, if you could do by your self or consult a camera technician,

    A late response, I know, but maybe it will help someone else. When you connect the camera it tries to show up as a removable media device with a disk drive letter assigned to it. If your computer has a memory card reader, multiple drives, mobile phones/tablets, or external storage used with it, the drive letter the camera tries to use may already be in use by another device. Before you give up and say there is a problem with the camera, connect the camera to your computer and then go into your computer's device manager (right click on 'Computer' and select 'Manage' in Windows XP/Vista/7). Go to Disk Management and see if any drives are listed without a drive letter. If one is, right-click on it and assign it an unused drive letter by selected 'Change Drive Letter'. This can solve a host of issues with trying to use cameras, phones, card readers, external hard drives, etc. on computers.

    I run WinXP Pro. My particular "Jazz" JDC230 is seen under Imaging Devices, but as of yet I've not had success in uploading to my pc from it. From all the research I've done and come up with nothing so far, it seems this camera will not be supported since Win98 or 2000 at best. I only paid 50 cents for it at a yard sale, so it goes into the toybox with all my kids' other obsolete junk!
