When I try to download photos from my S2700 to my computer, via a USB, the computer does not recognise the camera and the charging light flashes rapidly when the cable is attached and camera turns its


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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I recently got a new computer and I have plugged the USB cable from my samsung es57 digital camera into my PC and it says that it is "searching preconfigured driver folders" I want to be able to...


There are many ways to download photos from the camera without using the disc that came with the camera.

1- After plugging the camera and turning it on the download setting go to My Computer. The camera card should appear there as E: or D: click until you see other folders and your photos will be in the DCIM folder. copy that and paste it.

2- Or use a card reader not a cable and use the same method.

3- Or use the above two methods, but use Picasa free softweare to Import the photos. It needs a bit of stude and practice. Make sure not to delete or format the camera memory card until you have downloaded and saved the photo to the computer and another placfe such as an external hard drive, a DVD or USB etc.

How do they connect to the camera


I presume your question is a typo. Cameras do not connect to cameras, they usually connect to computers to download the photos. The camera shouold have a download cable with a normal USB plug on one end that connects to the computer and a very small plug at the other end that connects into a matching socket somewhere on gthe camera. If you have the camera socket but no cable then either go buy a cable from any computer or camera shop, or you can remove the camera storage card and insert into a computer card reader. It will then act as a new drive and the computer will give it a drive letter. The same will apply if you use a connecting cable between camera and computer. Either way when the computer recognises the camera card, it will give it a drive letter and you can then download your pictures to any folder on your computer. However, almost all digital cameras have download software on the driver disc and if that is the case with your camera then go get the connecting cable - take the camera with you to the shop if you're not sure of the cable type

When i plug in cable in usb port and try to download photos from my camera to computer a dialogue box appears-USB device not recognised


It's very hard to troubleshoot software problems online, and it likely is a software issue. But why put up with the headache of these software problems? Please see the following post, as it outlines a much easier, faster, and less error prone alternative way to download your photos (it's what most, if not all professional photographers use):

My computer doesn't recognise my camera.


Hi There, If you are using Windows xp or vista, you probably don't need special drivers, the computer should recognize what you are trying to do. Just in case, check your owners manual for computer/download info. Also check your usb input or try another usb input to make sure they are working. You could also try a friends computer to eliminate trouble with your own. If all else fails, you could purchase a usb multi- card reader to down load your pics, around $20.00.

Computer won't recognise camera to download images


** Problem Solved **

I found it wasn't the camera entirely to blame. I tried another USB cable on another pc, and although the camera was doing the same thing as my problem, the computer recognised the camera as new hardware, and asked me how to access the pictures. So I was able to get the pictures from the camera to the computer, and then saved them on to my Kingston flash drive. So taking the flash drive to my daily PC, I plugged in my flash drive via a USB extension lead, and discovered that would read either... alarm bells rang. So I unplugged the lead, and put the flash drive straight into the computer direct. The computer recognised it immediately. So plugging in the extension lead again, and the flash drive, it read this now. So I tried the camera, and it recognised it.

So I don't know exactly what the problem was, but it was solved... saved me a lot of running around and money ;)

Computer not recognising Coolpix camera


I think you need to install the driver for the camera..if you have the CD when you bought the camera then try running the CD and check for driver there. however if you don't have a CD for the driver.

try checking the website of the camera manufacturer...usually they have a driver available for download.

Problems downloading photos from camera


Unless someone else on the forum offers something more specific, I'd be very tempted to borrow a USB cable from a friend and see if using that instead of yours works. (Doesn't have to be from an Olympus camera - anything that has the same connectors on - camera, MP3 player, etc lead will do). A.
