    I just bought the Disney Pix Micro. I downloaded the software and rebooted. When the camera is plugged in it acts as a web cam and doesn't recognize any of the photos that were taken. What now?? I'm thinking of returning the camera.

  • davidvh Aug 28, 2008

    OK, I understand that. Are you saying the photos should still be there? The few instructions that came with the camera state you will lose the pics if you change the battery.



    Anyway, I changed the battery took a few pics and the camera still says there are no photos.

    My daughter has this camera. For the money we spent, you would think it would at least work for a while!!!!! The camera froze up the first day. It wouldn't do anything. Now we can't get the pics off of it. The pics are on the camera, but won't download!! What a hunk of junk!

The mistake I was making was trying to access the pictures from the USB port like I do with the SD card reader. It took me a couple of hours of trying to figure it out (felt real stupid!) All I had to do is open the downloader. So for anyone that's in my tech-not-so-savy catagory, try this: click on Start, then All programs, -DisneyPix2.2-DisneyPixMicroDownloader.

The type of memory in the pix micro is called volatile RAM. Unlike flash memory that you find in thumb drives that do not require a charge to store data the volatile RAM needs a charge to hold anything. If you left the pictures on the camera the memory will be pulling a charge from the batteries constantly until the pictures are downloaded to your computer and then removed from the camera or until the battery dies or is removed. Replace the battery with a new and it should be fine. Just be sure you download the pictures to your computer and then delete them from the camera to maintain good battery life.
Also make sure you install the software on your computer before connecting the camera.

I took a lot of pictures then the battery was drained but when I opened the pictures can't be seen


Oops. When the battery suddenly stops, while still accessing the memory card, it could be the filesystem is damaged. This causing it looks if all pictures are gone. Don't use the camera again, till you have recovered the pictures.
Put the memory stick in an external card reader and run a recover program. I hope the program can fine the "deleted" pictures.
free software to recover your files on a memory card can be found on:
www.cardrecovery.com
www.wondershare.net with free trail
www.cardrescue.com with free evaluation version
http://www.memorycard.freedatarecoverysoftware.org
Some programs will show the deleted files, but only recover a few files. If you want to recover more files they want you to pay. If so, try another program on the list.

It sounds like the memory card got corrupted. If the memory card shows no files, there are no files. I'm sorry, but they're gone. Are you SURE the pictures aren't on your computer? Most cameras delete the pictures AFTER it copies them to your computer.

How does this thing work?


Install the software on your computer. Put a battery in the camera. Push and hold the button to turn it on (display shows 00) Take some pictures - the camera makes a tiny beep, the led on the front flashes, and the count goes up by one. Push and hold delete to remove the last picture (count goes down) hold longer to delete them all (goes to 00). When you've collected some pictures, rush to your computer to download them with the USB cable before the battery runs out; when that happens the pictures are all gone (there's no flash memory in this). Holds about 40 pictures depending on the amount of detail in them.

All my pictures are gone off my LUMIX camera that I took only a few hours ago. The pictures ARE on my memory card, as it shows it when i put my memory card into the computer. But it won't show it on my...


First, it sounds like your mode dial is set to "clipboard". While it is, with no card in the camera, press the delete button to erase the clipboard memory. Then, set the mode dial to normal picture mode. Still, with no card in the camera, press the delete button again to erase anything from the internal memory of the camera. Then, insert the card and it should work properly.

My batteries went dead and camera shut off. Now I


if the camera wont turn on remove the memory card and make sure your pictures are transfered. Try using regular disposable batteries. Also when trying to turn it on try holding down the power button for 5 seconds. If it still doesnt turn on coud be a broken switch connection.

Camera will not turn on


Like dotball said, It looks to me like the batteries have gone dead. First charge the batteries and if that doesn't solve the problem, try new batteries.

use a recover program...like the one used to recover data from formated dvds..and use it on your memory card,inserted into a card reader..I dont suggest you to use it in the camera
and you can do the same with moving pictures..use the copy/paste option...put them into the card...attention...only D40X made pictures..
