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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

After I plugued in the reader nothing comes on the screen.


did your camera not come with a USB cord? mine did and when I plug it into the computer it doesn't always pop up with a dialog box asking if I want to import the pics, however if you go to your start menu then click on pictures it will bring up your picture files then look on the side bar (it should be on the left) then scroll down and if you are properly connected it will have a listing for your camera, just right click on it, and it will give you the option to import. Hope this was hepful

Hello. With your computer turned on try plugging in the cables with the camera turned off. After the connections are made turn the camera on. This usually works for my Kodaks. If that don't work right click" My Computer" and see if your camera shows up there under "devices with removable storage". If it does you can right click to open , view and move as you wish.

I can't load new pics onto Windows Vista Photo Gallery anymore...


I finally figured it out. Somehow I had messed with the Autoplay settings uploading pics the last time I guess. Anyways, if you experience this problem, check this out first and see if it fixes it for you before you do anything else:

gl_arrow_down_static.gif What if the import dialog box doesn't appear? If the dialog box prompting you to import your pictures doesn't appear when you connect the camera to your computer, AutoPlay might be turned off. You can import your pictures using Windows Photo Gallery instead. Here's how:
1. Open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.
2. On the toolbar, click File, and then click Import from Camera or Scanner.
3. In the Import Pictures and Videos dialog box, choose your camera from the list of devices, and then click Import.
gl_alert_vert.png gl_icon_tip.png If you prefer, you can turn on AutoPlay or set AutoPlay to automatically import pictures from a digital camera. For more information, see Change AutoPlay Settings. gl_alert_vert.png gl_alert_bg_tip.png

I have fixed my friends camera for her. This is how to fix it. Make sure the USB is connected to the computer and the camera. Go to MYCOMPUTER. You should see a Removable disk or Removable drive (E). Double click to open and it brings up a folder. DCIM. Click to open. It says IMAGE. Click to open. All your images should be in that file.

let me know if this worked for you or any one else.
