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 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 such as Picasa.

SOURCE: computer (XP SP2) doesnt detect camera

You should install the camera driver on your computer first. This way your computer will find the camera and you will be able to download the pictures from your camera to your computer. Another easier way is to buy a card reader (which is very cheap) and insert your memory card in it, plug the card reader to the USB port of your computer and download the pictures.

SOURCE: conecting thr camera to my computer

@keren:

That error message somehow means your USB connector wasn't plugged in properly to the camera. Another thing is that windows xp doesn't have driver for your camera that's why it wasn't recognized. what's the brand of your camera though? If you just want to transfer your pix from camera to pc or vice versa, use a card reader like the guy above me said.

You don't need any special software.

Plugging in usb lead to computer.. XP computer doesnt see camera??


Some cameras need a driver to be detected, but some need the installation CD to detect the camera. You can use a card reader to have the computer detect the pictures, and drag and drop them from the card to the computer. The card reader will be detected in My Computer as another drive, i.e. f:, g:, etc.
Good luck and hope this helps.

What cable do i need to conect to a computer


Hi,

For most cameras you may use a USB cable to connect the camera to the computer.

Once done, the camera will show up as a drive on the "My Computer" window.

Setting the Date and Time manually does not influence the behaviour of the camera. However, if the camera is not 'recognized' by the computer: Check if the USB cable is properly fitted in the camera. Put the other end in a different computer USB port. The computer should see the camera as a Removeable USB Device. If the problem persists, connect the camera to another computer and see if it is recognized.

Go to your computer's administrative tools and find services. Check the status your camera software. Status should read automatic. I had a software conflict that turned my camera window off.
