Hi
I presume that you are sure the camera has taken the images. My suggestion to get around this for this time and to avoid this in the future while picking up a few advantages is to get a card reader.

Benefits:
1. Gets rid of the need for drivers, and installation software if you are using XP or Vista.
2. Saves on the wear and tear on the battery of your camera.
3. Far quicker to transfer the pictures from the card reader than the camera.
4. A multi-card reader can be used for different Memory cards if you have different cameras in your house.
5. Often overlooked is the potential danger your camera is in when plugged into the computer of the lead getting caught or pulled, potentially landing your camera on the floor.
6. These days card readers are very cheap.

Hope that helps.

You need the software on the cd rom that came with yor camera.
I quote from the manual: turn on the computer-plug the USB cable into the camera-plug the other cable end into a USB port on the computer-the image download window displays on the computer screen-use the software's browser function to choose the folder in which you would-be like to save your pictures-click Ok to download the images. Hope it works!

Download images to your Computer
Before connecting your ViviCam 3350 to your PC for the first time you must first install the Twain driver first.

After the driver software has been installed, your still images and movie clips can be transferred to your PC using the USB cable. You will know that the ViviCam 3350 is ready to use when two icons appear on your desktop. The “ViviCam 3350” icon is used for downloading still mages to your computer.
The “PCCam” icon is for using the live video feature of the ViviCam 3350.

How can i uplaod pictures from my samsung camara S85 . it is connected to the computer but the computer shows no sign of anything plugged in into it . is there any setting that i need to put to the camara...


There is really only one sure way to transfer images from a digital camera to your computer and that is with a card reader ($15-20). Plugging the camera directly into the computer is one of the most problematic areas in digital cameras. It is so much easier to go buy a card reader and plug it into the USB port on your computer. Then remove the memory card from your camera and plug it into the card reader. You can now click and drag or use any normal method to transfer your images. I would also advise a free download called Picasa3 supplied by Google. It will keep your images organized and assist you as your transfer images using your new card reader. It does a whole lot of other things your will like also. Best Wishes.

Busy signal when trying to import images to my pc


I have had the same problem with getting a busy signal after plugging in the USB cord. Usually turning it on and off a few times, giving it a few seconds in between, works for me.
Also, have you tried just going into My Computer and clicking on the drive for the USB you've got you're camera plugged into and transferring the photos onto your pc from there? They only go onto your pc, not into a program but you can get them into one from there.

Uploads images to camera grayed out


Are you shooting in JPEG or RAW.

If Jpeg then you can just go into MY COMPUTER, the camera when connected should be recognised as a removable drive, just copy the images directly from your PC to the Card. If you are shooting in RAW then the chances are your digital frame will not recognise the file, convert to JPEG then transfer the same way. There may be a problem with the transfer process via the Canon Drivers, if you have a Card reader it is much easier to transfer the files that way.
