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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

    That's not very useful because the pictures are on the cameras own memory not the sd card. I think the problem is a driver issue. When i connect the camera to any other device than a pc it works correctly. The camera works faster after i deleted the db folder from the camera. Could the problem be solved via firmware update or something? And i will not buy a card reader for a single use only :P

I have a Kodak Easyshare CD40. It use to work fine but, now I can not down load my pictures to the computer. As soon as I turn the camera on (while it is hooked up via usb to computer) the green "on


If your photos are stored on a memory card in the camera, then remove the memory card and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Then connect the USB card reader into the USB port on your computer, the computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and photo on the memory card and copy them to your computer.

I have deleted a photo by accident from the camera's internal memory (not from sd card). How can I get it back?? It is an Olympus stylus 7040


If your camera has a USB port for you to access internal memory, then you have a chance. The best program to use is called PhotoRec and you can find it here. It's free, released under the GNU licence. When you connect your camera to the computer (ensure there's no memory card in there to complicate things) then the computer sees the camera's memory as a disk. Make sure this is working before you proceed. Don't write anything to it, or take pictures! If it's not working that way, make sure the camera's USB mode is set to 'mass storage' rather than 'mtp' if it has that mode too. When this is working, use PhotoRec to search for images on that disk (in the camera).

Windows updates changes the registry and sometimes causes our "toys" to stop working. You can contact Microsoft and get instructions to re-write your registry(very dangerous if you don't know what you're doing) or, you can do what the pros do to avoid this very common problem....get a card reader! typrice_40.jpg

Hi there again,
I am assuming you are using XP OS.....
I have a couple of questions for you.

Try this.............
With computer on and camera NOT connected,
Please look at my computer,


1.What happens when you connect camera to usb lead then connect the lead to the computers usb port?

2,Would it upset you if we use another way of moving your photo and video files from camera to computer?

3.Does Memory card work in another device or computer?

Solution 1 =================================
If usb did not recongise the camera on the usb port then it will be a software and hardware reinstall ,
Remove usb lead from computer
Go to Add/Remove from you control panel.
Remove the cameras software.reboot.
restart install software first and reboot,
do not connect camera yet,WAIT.
once restarted add camera via usb
should be good to go.....

If it does continue to give you issues then consult the manufactuerer.


Solution 2 =================================
if the usb is connected to the camera via usb lead to usb port on the computer and you can see the cameras' drive info then its more than likely you will be able to open and use this file ,if so you should be able the move these files to your computer too.

Solution 3 =====================================
Explains itself really-Replace it if you need to.

Hope this sorts out your problem.
I beleive your card reader may be poked,
Uninstall and reinstall try again, replace if presists.

these solutions I have put forward have been proven to work in many situations so good luck and let us know the results thanks
