For this issue you just need to reinstall the software or driver for your camera. Then restart your Pc. Then you need to connect your camera again to check if the pc will recognized it. You may also try to check if the cable you're using to connect your camera to your pc is not damaged because usually the cable is the one causing the issue.

Hope this help you a bit. Have a great day.

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 Nikon Transfer or Picasa.

Can not connect my 9xxBackbeat bluetooth headphone to my laptop. My OS (Win 7 x32) recognize this device but then it says it can download the driver to run this device


In order to use this headset, your built-in Bluetooth in your PC needs to support the hands free profile, audio and A2DP profile. If it does, all you need to do is hold in the power button on the headset until you see the light on the headset flashing red/blue, red/blue. If it doesn't you'll need to load it onto your computer. Once the headset is flashing red/blue your computer should find it.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

Hi ludovicungur,


If your device is blinking fast then it means the problem could be that your are using an incorrect mode of connection for e.g. a USB extension cord , or a USB hub to connect your external HDD.

I would suggests you to remove any external cable or USB hub and then connect the hdd directly to the port on *********** board ,if possible try changing ports and it should work.

Hope this helps ..:)
