Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ50 Digital Camera
My PC has Windows XP and still does not recognize Lumix DMC-TZ5 as I first time after purchase connected it to my PC. Connection, mode and dial setting are all according to manual. With or without memory card. Shots was made into internal memory and Memory card.
When I tried to install USB driver from supplied disk I got massage:
USB equipment operates with the driver installed as standard.
You do not need to install a driver.
I contacted Panasonic and here is what they told me to do and it worked.
"No additional drivers are needed as it runs off the USB drivers imbedded in
your Windows OS. That being said though, it is not that the USB ports on the
front of your computer are faulty, just that they are in fact a HUB and not
the port which is located on the back of the PC. Windows does not
traditionally like reading external Hard drives (your camera becomes one when
PC connect mode is selected) through a HUB. In this case I would still
strongly recommend connecting to the back of the PC."

I just kept the camera on, connected it to the PC, waited for the error message, and then restarted the PC, leaving the camera on & connected. After the restart, the PC suddenly recognized the camera, and I could copy the pictures and vidoes without a problem... beats me why, but it worked for me...
