Question about Disney Pix Micro Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera wont download the photos.

Download software says that there are no images avaiable, but cameras has 128 images in it.

This camera does not use a flashcard and holds up to 250 photos, but came with download software written by Disney called Disney pix-click.

Any help would be apreciated as my 7 year old daughter bought the camera with her own $50.00 and we felt that the Disney name would insure a quality product.

1) Please install the Disney Pix 2 software and the Disney Pix Micro Downloader to your computer via the software CD that came with the Disney Pix Micro
2) Please double-click on the "Setup" to begin the install of the Pix Micro drivers. The User Account Control will appear warning you that a program is trying to run. Please click "Allow".
3) Complete the install of the driver by following the prompts.
4) After the install completes, you are prompted to restart the computer. Please select "Restart now" and then click "Finish".
5) You can now delete the Setup program from your computer

Please click the "OK" button and the download will complete successfully. The images can even be deleted via the downloader after the images are downloaded. Although, every time you open the downloader, you must run it as an administrator and every time you download, the "Pixel Up" box will appear.

If you are having a problem installing a product that uses InstallShield as their installation tool, and the steps below do not resolve your issue, you will need to contact the vendor of the software, as we cannot provide further support. Your vendor, who used InstallShield as an installation tool, created the product that you are trying to install. It is very likely that the error you are getting is related to how the vendor used our product and only the vendor would know which InstallShield product they used, which version and how they programmed it. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

This article applies to the following errors when trying to install an application that uses InstallShield:

Error extracting support files
Error installing Ikernel.exe (0x any number)
Access is denied
Error loading Type Library/DLL

Discussion

Detect Version
Different troubleshooting steps are necessary for different version of InstallShield. To check the version of InstallShield Professional that was used to create the setup, take the following steps:

1.Right-click on the setup.exe
2.Select "Properties".
3.In the Properties dialog, select the tab labeled "Version".
4.Near the top there will be a filed labeled "File Version". The number specified here will tell you approximately what version of InstallShield was used to create this install.

InstallShield 5.x and 3.x
If the version of InstallShield is less than 6.00, see article Q100198, HOWTO: Eliminating General Setup Initialization Errors.

InstallShield 6.x
If the version is 6.00 or greater, continue with the following steps.

Setup initialization errors can be caused by a number of factors. This is a non-exhaustive list of possible resolutions:

1.Insufficient permissions on the machine. If you are using a Windows NT or a Windows 2000 machine, you need to have administrative permissions to run an InstallShield Professional 6.x setup. Make sure you have the correct permissions.

2.If you just ran an InstallShield setup, the engine takes a few seconds at the end of the installation to clean up. During this time Ikernel.exe (the engine file) is running in memory from a previous process. That is why you are not allowed to launch another setup. Waiting a few seconds and running the setup again should resolve this.

3.Check and make sure Ikernel.exe is not in memory. If it is, and no setup is running at the time, end that task and restart the system.

4.Clean out the Temp directory.

5.Delete the Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine folder and then rerun the setup.

6.Reinstalling Internet Explorer (IE) 5.x can also repair a number of corrupted/missing core Windows files from your machine, so reinstalling IE 5.x and the NT service pack is also suggested.

7.Another possibility is that you do not have sufficient COM permissions. For information on how to troubleshoot this, see article Q104986, INFO: Initialization Error Troubleshooting.

8.The other potential cause is a missing Stdole.tlb file. This is a core Windows file and should exist on your machine. Make sure that if you get this file from another machine, the machine is running the same operation system as the machine you are trying to run the setup on.

9.If you are trying to install to a Windows 98 machine, download and run Dcom98.exe from the following site: http://www.microsoft.com/com/dcom/dcom98/download.asp.

10.Make sure that you are using the latest version of the InstallShield engine. To install the latest engine see article Q105097, INFO: Install the Latest Version of Ikernel.exe

When I try to download most recent pictures I am forced to download all that are on camera


It depends on what software you are using to transfer photos from the camera to your computer.
If you install and use the "Camera Window" transfer software Canon included with the camera, you will see you have three modes to choose from, including the option to transfer just the photos on your camera that have not yet been transferred.

Connect the camera with a USB cable to your computer.
Power up the camera.
The computer will detect the camera, and open a dialog box offering you a choice of programs on your computer that can handle photo transfers.

If you choose the Camera Window software, it will open and present a menu with three choices of action. The first option is, "Import images from Camera." Select this.

Another submenu opens presenting these three options:

1. Import Untransferred images. (this is what you said you want)
2. Select images to Import. (manually select just certain ones)
3. Import All images (automatically transfers every image on the card)

Menu screenshot, Canon's "Camera Window" transfer software2d13ae76-841e-450d-995d-43cd3e2dd7e6.png
Camera Window is just one of many available image transfer applications you could use. They all do essentially the same three things outlined above, including "Import Untransferred images."

Canon included a couple other utility programs on the CD that came with your Powershot A490 camera. One of them, "Zoom Broswer EX" enables you to reload photos from your computer, back on to your camera's image card, if you want to do that.

Camera wont tranfer images to computer


It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headaches of bad software in the first place? Please see the following blog article, as it describes the use of a card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue:

Downloading


There is an alternate way of downloading images from the memory card from the camera.
Get a USB memory card reader, remove the memory card from the camera, insert it into the card reader, then plug the card reader into the USB port of your computer. You will now see card reader as an external memory device, open the folder and copy your photos onto your hard drive.

Accidently deleted photos. How can they be recovered?


I have had success with this camera recovery software... Download the photo recovery program called asoftech photo recovery
http://www.asoftech.com/apr/

You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

Missing Photos Canon Rebel XTi


You can actually still keep taking photos with your camera without loosing the images. The XTi will never delete the images off a card unless you press the trashcan key and tell it to "delete all".

It's always good practice in these situations to have a memory card reader handy. You can pick up a compact flash reader for your XTi for about $14 at BestBuy or many other retaillers.

But to answer your question: Use the ZoomBrowser EX software that came with the camera. If your Picasa is set to automatically connect and download every time the camera is connected - temporarily disable it. That way it wont inturrupt Canon's software (which I prefer).

Photo settings display


I recommend the Qimage software. Although it is really designed to help print images, it also has excellent computer screen viewing of images, as well as some image editing capabilites, and will show the F-stop and aperture, and other camera setting values for each picture just by holding the mouse pointer over the thumbnail image. The $30 I spent for this software several years ago (all updates are free) is the best money I have spent on photo software. Mike Chaney (the guy who wrote and updates the software) is always improving it and is responsive to user comments and suggestions. Visit the web site (http://www.charm.net/~mchaney/imaging/index.html#news) and download the free demo - I think that you will like it.
