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.
It may be a USB port issue or a USB cable issue. Try an alternate cable or a different USB port. Try other USB devices on those same ports to make sure they work. Try using a USB card reader to transfer photos from the card directly instead of plugging in your camera directly.
I would suggest you to connect your camera to your PC in MASS storage mode , instead of the suite mode, or the software mode.
When you connect the camera in MASS storage mode, you get a removable drive in your My Computer option and then , you can just go inside the drive and find all your photos in different directories , then all you need to do is to select the ones you want to copy and then paste those images on your hard disk folder or your desktop.
Let me know in case you have any queries.
Hope this helps ..:) Your feed back would be appreciated.
The "USB mode" and "Connecting to Mass Storage" message will get displayed when the Camera is connected to the Computer and is recognized by the Computer as a Mass Storage device. This is not an error message and is a normal operation.
You can change the Mass Storage settings in the Camera (depends on the model) The USB Select or USB Connect option in the Camera can be changed to PTP, Mass Storage or PictBridge mode. Set the option in the Camera to PTP and connect it to the Computer and check if the Computer is recognizing the connection. Once the computer is recognized, it appear as a removable Drive.
You can transfer the images from the Camera to the Computer from the Removable Drive by copying and pasting.
The phone needs to be in mass storage mode, when you plug it in it should ask whether you want to put the phone in Ovi Suite mode, internet connection or mass storage. If this is not happening, you need to go to Settings > Connectivity > USB and select the correct option.
Plug the usb cable ino tthe computer you want the images in adn your phone (of course)...go to tools - USB Mode - Mass Storage and connect...
in the computer on the removeable memory or disc in teh DCIM folder is another foler mine is 100LGDCF and in there are your images...you can delete or copy...to the computer...if
The quickest way to do this is to put your phone into Mass Storage Mode then connect it via the USB cable to your computer. Your phone shows up as a USB Mass Storage Device and you can select the folders you want to download your pictures from.
To set your phone to Mass Storage Mode, do the following:
- Go to the main menu - Select Settings - Then Select Phone Settings - Choose PC Connections from the menu - And then click on Mass Storage.
When you connect the USB cable to your computer, your phone will show up as a USB Storage device and you can just copy and past files to it like you would a USB Thumb drive. If you select the Samsung PC Studio option...your file transfers will take ALL DAY. Just use Mass Storage mode. Good luck.
The easiest solution is to leave it as 'mass storage', then navigate to it, my computer, mass storage, ect, Then just right click & open it. Now open your pictures, music ect. on your PC, drag & drop to the phone. That's how I do mine. You will be able to drop them into whichever folder you want. You might have to drop them into a folder on the phone then copy & paste them to the SD card after you disconnect from the PC. If you have more questions leave a comment, I'll be happy to help. Good luck.
buy a memory card reader for your pro duo card and bypass the cable connection from camera-sounds like bad driver or software issue-card reader should be plug and play with no software and should download no problems!
