Can"t download pictures into computer

    Have you considered 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.

Transfer photos from Camera to PC


<span><span><i><b>Hello and welcome to FixYa!</b></i><br /> <br />To transfer your photos from your</span><span> Digital Camera</span><span><span> to PC, Follow the given steps:</span><br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">1.</span>First connect your digital camera to your computer.<br />You can do this in two different ways:<br /> <br /></span></span> <ul> <li><span><span> <b>Use a USB cable:</b>Most digital cameras come with a cable that connects the camera to a USB (Universal Serial Bus) port on your computer.</span></span></li></ul> <ul> <li><span><span> <b>Through memory card:</b>A memory card reader is a piece of hardware that plugs right into your computer. You remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into your memory card reader, similar to the way you might transfer a file between two computers using a floppy disk.</span></span></li></ul><span><span> Now connect USB cabe or Memory card Reader to the port of the computer<br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">2</span>.Once you've connected your camera to your computer or inserted your memory card into your memory card reader, your computer will detect the connection and ask you what you want to do with your pictures. If you connected your camera with a USB cable, click <b>Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard</b>, and then click <b>OK<br /><br /><img src="angel_bird_1.gif" /><br /><br /></b></span></span><span><span>If you are using a memory card reader, click <b>Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard</b>, and then click <b>OK</b>.<br /><br /><img src="angel_bird_2.gif" /><br /><br /></span></span><span><span><span style="font-weight: bold;">3</span>.When the Scanner and Camera Wizard appears, click <b>Next</b>.<br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">4.</span>All of the pictures on your camera (or in your camera's memory card) are now displayed on the Choose Pictures to Copy page. By default, Windows XP selects all of the pictures for downloading. If there are pictures you do not want to download, just clear the check box next to those pictures. At this stage, you can also rotate pictures that you took while holding your camera vertically. To rotate a picture, click it, and then click either the <b>Rotate clockwise </b>or <b>Rotate counterclockwise </b>button on the lower-left side of the page. When you have reviewed the pictures for downloading and rotated your vertical pictures, click <b>Next</b>.</span></span><br /><img src="angel_bird_3.gif" /><br /><br /><span><span><span style="font-weight: bold;">5.</span>On the Picture Name and Destination page, type a name for the group of pictures. (This name, plus a number to differentiate each picture, will be applied to each of the pictures you download; for example, if you name the group "Vacation," the pictures will be named "Vacation001," "Vacation002," and so on.) Click <b>Browse</b>, and select a folder in which to save your pictures.<br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">6</span>.If you want to erase the images from your camera's memory card to make space for new ones, select the <b>Delete pictures from my device after copying them </b>check box, and then click <b>Next</b>. The Scanner and Camera Wizard copies the pictures from your camera to the folder you specified and then removes the pictures from your camera's memory card.<br /><br /><img src="angel_bird_4.gif" /><br /><br /><br /></span></span><span><span><span style="font-weight: bold;">7.</span>On the Other Options page, you can choose to publish your pictures to a Web site or order prints. If you have finished working with your pictures, click <b>Nothing</b>, and then click <b>Next</b>.<br /> <span style="font-weight: bold;">8.</span>On the final page of the wizard, click <b>Finish</b>. Windows XP opens a Windows Explorer window showing the pictures you downloaded from your camera. Your camera's memory card is now clean and ready to store new pictures. If you connected your camera to your computer using a USB cable, disconnect your camera. If you used a memory card reader, return the memory card to the camera.<br /> Your photos are now stored on your PC, ready for whatever you want to do with them, and <span style="font-style: italic;">your camera is ready to take more pictures.</span></span></span><br /><br /><span>Thank you for Using FixYa!</span><br /><span><span><br /></span></span>

Tip

The most important ever tip about a new digital camera or camcorder


Do NOT throw away any of the contents of the box. <br /><br />That's it- the most important tip for your new camera.<br /><br />In Fixya, a large proportion of the questions we see start out- "I lost the CD that came with my camera. How do I download pictures to my computer?"<br /><br />Another popular category is- "I lost my manual- how do I do this that or another common camera task?"<br /><br />Occasionally we see- "I lost my charger. How do I charge my camera?"<br /><br />Really? You "lost" it?<br /><br />A digital camera is almost useless if you can't get the pictures onto a computer to show or print them. A camcorder almost as much so, though some can play back through a TV (if you haven't lost the cable).<br /><br />Sometimes you can download a copy of the manual, and/or some of the software, for some cameras, but not all. Some makes simply don't have a website offering such downloads. Others may only offer software updates, but not the main drivers/applications that came on the CD, or there may be conditions. If you want to download drivers for a Sony camcorder, for instance, you may be asked for the code that was printed on your original CD. Otherwise you may have to PURCHASE a replacement!<br /><br />Avoid all this hassle- just keep the stuff safe. <br /><br /><br />

You might want to consider NOT connecting the camera to the 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.

This is an old posting but I thought I'd show some light on the situation anyway. When you download pictures from the camera to the computer you also need to eject or safely remove the card/ stop the card don't just remove it from the computer or disconnect the USB cable it will corrupt the memory card(s). Once you have the pictures safely on thee computer Hard drive you also need to format the memory cards doesn't matter if it's a Fuji, Olympus Canon Nikon anybodies digital camera the memory cards must be formatted before new picture files can be written to the memory card again. or maybe i should say written to the card successfully.

It has suddenly become impossible to get my computer to "see" my Canon Ixus 950 IS, and so I cannot download pictures. I have tried re-install;ing the "EOS" software. Any ideas, please


There are many reasons for sync problem errors between cameras and computers, making it very difficult to troubleshoot here. Would first recommend that you try plugging the USB cord into a different USB port on your computer. If that doesn't work, would highly recommend that you consider using a card reader instead to download you pictures. Card readers are much more faster in downloading pics, do not require the use of your camera's batteries, and provide much more reliable downloading of the pictures (fewer errors). They're also VERY inexpensive these days. Here are some examples from Amazon:
