Question about Bell & Howell DV65 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera not displaying pictures

I installed the software on my Windows ME. When I try to view the pix on the computer by following instructions on pg 5 of the "quick guide," there's no drive E displayed under accessories/windows explorer and it says the camera is not connected, which it is. The very first time I connected it, it worked, but the pix didn't show, only the fact that it was a movie camera for I could see myself setting up the camera to view the pictures. The instructions are very vague and different between the quick guide and manual. The software was installed - twice - and does appear on the programs menu. Why doesn't this camera let me see the pix? It is in MSD mode. What bothers me is there is no drive E, even though the camera is connected. The software is installed, as it shows on the programs menu and I've brought them up via acrobat reader. There is no memory card in the camera, as it is using "internal" memory. Per the instructions, it does not state to install a memory card to view pix on the computer. There are pictures in the camera because I've seen them today. My main question is how to get the pictures to appear. FYI, someone needs to redo the manual for there is a step missing on setting up the camera. Example: To get the date/time set up, follow instructions and then to get to the point where you can actually get to the date to change it, you must hit the button you use to take a picture. This takes you to the date and then you can change it. This final step is not in the manual.

Re: camera not displaying pictures

I was fighting with a Scanner and camera Wizard issue in XP and looking at all kinds of sites, forums. One that came up was someone had a similar problem to yours and had to go into Norton and uncheck removable drives to get the drive to show up. Also check the microsoft site for fixes, patches for ME. On my problem the drive wasthere but the wizard would not open and someone suggested to remmove Realplayer. It worked!!

If images cannot be imported automatically into the Windows PC, check [Precautions] below.



[Precautions]

- Temporarily terminate resident software such as antivirus software.

- Connect the AC adapter or load a fully charged battery into the digital camera.

- If RealPlayer 10 is installed, select "Tools" - "Preferences" and then disable "Automatic Services."



XXXen the digital camera is connected to the PC, if the FinePixViewer starts up and images in the digital camera are displayed, skip Steps 1 to 5 and start with Step 6.



1. Start up the PC and then connect the digital camera and PC using a USB cable.



2. The "USB MODE" setting of the digital camera may be set to "PC CAM."

Set "USB MODE" to "Card Reader" or "DSC."

*Only in the case of the digital cameras that have the "USB MODE" setting in the SETUP menu



3. Check whether or not any mark indicating the USB connection (USB, CARD READER, USB symbol with an arrow mark, etc.) is displayed on the LCD monitor of the digital camera.

If not, the digital camera and the PC are not connected properly. Check the following points.



a. Restart the PC, disconnect and connect the USB cable and then try again.

b. If the PC has multiple USB ports, connect the USB cable to another port and then try again.



If no mark indicating the USB connection is displayed even after performing above Steps (a) and (b), the digital camera or USB cable may have a problem.



4. Check whether or not "Removable Disk" is displayed in "My Computer." (For example, when the operating system is Windows XP, a FinePix icon in the shape of a digital camera is displayed.)

If "Removable Disk" is not displayed, install the USB driver again.



5. Automatic startup software (Exif Launcher) may not function properly.

Perform the following procedure.



[Windows XP]

I received an Emerson 10 x 25 Digital Camera Binoculars as a gift. I followed all the instructions, installed the drivers and the photoimpression5 from the enclosed disc. The download photo does not work....


Hi Brian,
Try this, it may work.It will tell you whether or not it is the Camera or the Software.
Your camera, as far as the computer itself and Windows XP is concerned is a 'DRIVE'.
Try the following steps:
0 Go to the desktop of the computer and in a blank spot right click the mouse and using the
menu CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON THE DESKTOP. LABEL IT "EMERSON PHOTO TEST"
1 Unplug the camera from the computer
2 Un-install the software.
3 If there are no pictures in the camera. Shoot some.
4 Turn the camera OFF.
5 While the camera is OFF, connect the it to the computer using it's cable.
6 Turn the camera ON (you should hear two musical notes telling you that it is connected.
7 Set the camera to the view mode as though your were looking at pictures on the screen on the camera back
8 There should appear a box on the screen. The first item in the box should be highlighted.
It will say "Copy pictures to a folder on my computer using Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard" Click on that.
9 Follow each step of the wizard and deposit all of the pictures into the folder " Emerson Photo Test" Don't Erase the photos from the camera if it asks you.
10 Shut off the camera and disconnect it
11 Open up the folder on the desktop. At the top of the folder on the right select files view to Thumbnails.
If your cable and camera are OK, the photos will be there.
12 To Test PhotoImpressions5, to see if it will view the photos without crashing your computer.
Reinstall it and open the folder on the desktop.
One additional thing. If your Windows XP is not fully up to date, you should download The Service Packs and install them until you get to Service Pack 3.
To check which service pack you have now, if any, go to My Computer" and view "System Information" it will tell you which Service Pack you have.
I hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

i had the same problem with my camera too but i emailed the manufacter and this is what they sent me:
Hi,
Thank you for your interest in Digital Blue. Please unplug the camera from your computer and follow the steps below.
  1. Open the Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories. Right-click on 'Command Prompt' and select "Run As Administrator...".
  2. This will bring up a window saying 'Windows needs your permission to continue', please click on the 'Continue' button.
  3. When the DOS window opens, type in (without the quotes):
    'cd c:\windows\system32'
  4. The above should change the command prompt to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32:.
  5. Now, type in (without the quotes): 'regsvr32 vbscript.dll'
    (dll = dynamic link library)
  6. You should see a window pop up stating 'DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded.'
  7. Please insert the software CD with version 2.2.0 into your CD/DVD-ROM drive.
  8. This will bring up the auto-play for the install, please follow the prompts to go through the installation.
  9. The install consists of three different software packages, you should see the Pix 2.2, Pix Loader or Pix Micro Downloader, and the DB CIF Cam being installed.
  10. If you receive an error after the Pix 2.2 install, you will need to download the drivers and Downloader program from our website at http://digiblue.com/customer-service/downloads/index.html You will need to select the 'Disney Pix Micro Downloader' and 'Disney Pix Micro Drivers for WIN Vista'.
  11. Once you have installed the drivers and downloader program you will be asked to restart your computer. After the computer has been restarted, plug the camera into the USB port and look to see that the computer says the drivers have been installed.
  12. Open the Pix Loader or Disney Pix Micro Downloader from your Desktop or from the All Programs list and click on the Download button. If you have a 'Pixel Up' window pop up, click OK, and wait for the download to finish. A 'Delete' button will come up on the Downloader program which will indicate the download has been completed.
  13. You can view the photos by going to 'My Pictures' > 'My Snapshots' or using the Pix 2.2 editing software.
HOPE THIS HELPS!!!
