For the DCR PC101E you need to use a firewire cable or 1394 cable or the i-Link cable which goes to your computer this is one and the same thing with different names. However if your computer does not have a connection for this you must go and buy a 1394 pci card that you have to connect inside your computer. These usually come with the software drivers for the 1394 card.

I have an old Z730 Easyshare camera. I am trying to transfer the pictures to the computer. I plug it into the cable, turn it on and nothing happens. This is a new problem. I get nothing when befor


Try 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). 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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I have a canon power shot SD1000 and the USB cord to connect it to my computer. I have done that and turned on the camera, but nothing.....


Hi,
Thanks for using FIxya.......
Before connecting your camera, you will need to install the driver which came up with your camera. Then you are asked to connect it to the computer.
After installing it, you can connect your camera anytime....
Good Luck and have a nice day.
rating the solution is highly appreciated.

My computer is saying the software has been installed for the JVC GR-D73 but I can't access the files?


You need to download videos from your camera onto your PC. You need to install Image Mixer(included in your CD provided) and launch this program(camera connected either USB or FIREWIRE) and click which connection you are using and your camera must then be detected. If no response at all, update your driver. How? Right click MY COMPUTER, click MANAGE, then DEVICE MANAGER and look for yellow mark(e.g. GR-D73) if there is and update(you will be asked to insert CD) follow the prompt. Remember installing drivers on XP, Hardware must be connected first before doing so. Good Luck

External HD is not detected by laptop Windows XP


A common issue...I'm sure your hard drive is working fine, Windows is just not giving it an unused drive letter.

1. Insert the device (camera or usb drive)
2. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage".
3. Click on "Disk Management"
4. Right-click the item in the list that looks like your camera or usb drive, and then click "Change Drive Letter and Paths."
5. Click "Change".
6. Give it a drive letter that is not being used.
7. Click OK.

The device should work instantly after that.

Screen quits working intermittently


The backlight on the display isn't working. If you look closely, you might be able to eek out an image (barely), but without the backlight, it is almost impossible to see. . It is either one of two problems: It might be that the light has a bad connection, but most likely it is that the camera isn't managing the power to the light properly. . Your only solution in the second case is to have the camera serviced. (First case - if you are good at taking things apart like this - is to find the bad connection and reseat it. Probably good to have it sent off for this problem too, if you don't want to tackle that.)

Cannot transfer photos from kodak computer to


With Windows XP it is possible to connect the camera and transfer pictures without using the Kodak drivers as contained in EasyShare software. Windows XP contains built-in drivers (Windows Imaging Acquisition or WIA drivers) that will recognize your digital camera.
It is a good temporary alternative to using EasyShare if there are issues with installing the software, as it will at least enable you to transfer pictures to your computer. You will however lose the ability to upload any files or information to the camera, such as:
-firmware updates
-e-mail address books
-the Camera Favorites album which is a feature of some of our newest cameras
Simply connect your camera and use the Device Manager to configure Windows on how to work with the camera:
-Right-click on My Computer and choose "Manage". Click [Device Manager] in the left pane.
-Click the plus (+) sign in front of "Imaging devices". The camera should be listed below it.
-Right-click on the camera and select "Update Driver".
-If you have installed Windows XP Service Pack 2, you will be prompted, "Can Windows connect to Windows Update to search for software?" Select "No, not this time". Click [Next].
-Select "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click [Next].
-Select "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install". Click [Next].
-Select "Digital Still Camera". Click [Next].
-Check that a program selection window appears. Select "Always use this program for this action".
Now your camera should be accessible via My Computer under "Scanners and Cameras".
