    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.

Can't upload video from camera to pc Olympus TOUGH TG-310 Digital Camera


Do you have Windows Live Photo Gallery? It comes with Windows 7, but if not you can download it here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-live/photo-gallery-get-started
  1. Open Windows Live Photo Gallery
  2. Connect your camera
  3. Click the Import icon in the top left corner.
  4. Select your Olympus and click import. It should import both photos and videos.

You can also try and select the videos you want using the file download module Windows displays when a new device is plugged in. If that doesn't work, try
  1. Start > Computer > Olympus Tough TG-310
  2. Then open the folders until you find the videos you want. Select them and copy them to your desktop (or any other preferred location).
I have had video issues with my Olympus TOUGH (could not delete them from the camera) which turned out to be a formatting problem with the memory card.

I have a SONY DCR-TRV950 and can not download video via the USB cable. Any thoughts?


Hi there, I've just posted my own answer to the same problem, my own problem, elsehwere on here. My solution was to insert a Firewire card into my PC and use that port. I checked with Sony and they said my original USB cable and port was not appropriate with Windows 7 64 bit, that a Firewire port was best. When such a Rirewore port is used then the correct driver automaticllly become available to you, if you have Windows 7 that is. I probably wrote the answer much better first time around on my other posting.......

Have not got laptop with windows 7 and cannot transfer photos from Praktica Luxmedia 6103 digital camera to laptop


You do not need Windows 7 - any functioning windows PC or Mac that can accept a USB cable should be able to see your camera's memory folders. Put the camera on and 1- On a PC they appear at Start/My computer/ and in a folder somewhere within E: or D: click on folders within folders to find and copy your photo folder manually. and paste it on your computer hard drive.
2.
On a Mac it appears on the desktop.

Try to download and use picasa to import photos.
