Cannot access the drive letter associated with the camera

After I connected my digital camera to a computer running the Windows 2000 or Windows XP operating system, the camera transferred pictures, but I cannot access the drive letter associated with the camera. The camera appears as a removable drive and not as a camera. How do I fix this?

To resolve this problem, do the following: IMPORTANT: You must have full Administrator privileges and the ability to change sharing privileges. Connect the camera to the computer. Double-click the My Computer icon. Right-click the drive letter associated with the camera, and then select Sharing. Select Share this folder. In the User Limit field, select Maximum allowed. Click Apply, and then OK. NOTE: Depending on how the operating system is set up, you may have to do this procedure every time you try to access the camera.

Why my samsung wb 700 camera not connect with the windows 7 pc.but xp lap identifies the camera. system requirments for camera are windows 2000/xp/vista. Is this the problem or should i install suitab


Consider 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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Hi i can't import photos to my PC


Hi there,

You can connect your camera to the computer using the usb cable. Once the camera has been detected, RIGHT click on your windows Start button and choose Expore to open windows explorer. Then on the window, click on the My Computer or Computer on the left to show the driver letters associated with it. Look for the drive letter for the camera and click on it to show contents on the right. All you have to do is locate for the folder which contains the pictures and copy them on your local drive.

Software download


Highclass

You can download the drivers from http://support.creative.com

Also note if you are running Windows XP or higher you do not need the software to get the pictures off the camera (I have one my self and it works fine on my Windows XP and Windows 7 computers).

It is possible that the drive letter that the camera wants to use by default is assigned to another device. The links below will help you reassign a drive letter to the camera.

Windows XP won't recognise the camera


Let me know if this helps: When a mass-storage class (MSC) Luminx camera is connected to a Windows XP system the camera does not appear as a mounted drive if there are no free drive letters between physical drives and mapped networked drives. Remapping the first network drive and leaving a free drive letter solves this issue. For example: If the Floppy Drive is drive ?A? the internal Hard Disk is ?C? the CD-ROM is ?D? and the mapped network drive is ?E? the Lumix camera will not mount. If the mapped network drive is moved to ?H? the Lumix will mount properly as drive ?E?. To change the drive letter mapping: Find the mapped network drive in the "My Computer" Right Click the drive and choose "Disconnect" Use the "My Network Places" to find the share to be mapped (that was removed above) Right click the shared item and choose "Map Network Drive..." Choose a drive letter from the pop-up list, remember to leave at least one free letter after the last physical drive Click "Finish" the share will now be mapped to the new drive letter and the camera should mount As long as there is a free drive letter between the last physical drive and the first network drive the actual letters do not matter. For instance if there were more than one hard drive (or DVD, CD-R, etc). This issue has only been documented with Windows XP and MSC class cameras, cameras capabale of using PTP USB mode should be set to PTP to avoid this issue.
