PC Cam 600 Does Not Work after Restore

After doing a restore on my XP system, it no longer allows my camera to connect. Even though usb is connected, says camera is not connected. Will not recognize camera when go to control panel to add new hardware. I had to uninstall the camera software and reload it. I am afraid the cam was still connected and somehow erased drivers from cam?? Is this possible? Do not know how to do a memory restore on the cam itself and have lost my instruction book.

I have a panasonic SDR 1140 I have problems editing video data and the Panasonic assistance team told me to uninstall and reinstall the software. each time i try to on both my PCs it saya that it cannot do...


The more recent version of the driver software is probably Windows default driver installed when you connected the camcorder USB before installing drivers from disk.

If you have connected for the first time the camera to this computer in recent date, then you can try doing a system restore to a date before you connected the camera USB cable.

You can start System restore using the start button at the lower left hand corner on Windows.
Go to:

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.

My pc(XP operating system) does not detect my digital camera

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.

Cannot find camera message

Had the same problem and here is what I found to work. This was done on XP when my wife's Vista notebook would not work.

Install the software and reboot.
Connect the camera to the computer so it is recognized.
Disconnect and take pictures.
-- Ready to download --
Start the PixLoader application.
WAIT for the camera to shut off before connecting to the USB and then connect it.
Click "Download".
The pictures should be on your PC.

When I tried to use other methods (like using My Computer) it deleted my photos. It took a bit to figure out how to get it to work.

My camera won't connect to my computer

This can be caused by several things. First plug up another USB device to that port. if it works you know your port is good. next hook up the camera and look in my computer for a extra drive letter. if you see on that is your camera. If nothing still see if you can hook it up to another persons computer to see if your cable and camera is ok. If the camera does work and none of these help out then it is a drivers issue. you will need to go into saft mode by hitting f8 when the pc first starts up goto option 3 safe mode now right click on my computer Icon and goto properties. Find device manager. in their click on hardware now find the USD devices and try to remove all of the usb listings once you have done that reboot the system the system will come up in normal mode. And start loading all of your usb devices again. Now hook up the camera and see if it works. If that does not work then in XP goto the system tools are in you accessories area. and choose system restore. choose the date closest to the last time it worked. Once you restore the system then hook up the camera again. This should work as long as all hardware is good.

Can't upload pics; computer not "seeing" camera

The key to getting back to "It used to work fine;" is to make Windows "GO BACK IN TIME" to that moment when it last "It used to work fine;" occurred. How to do that. Try to pinpoint the exact date that it started acting badly. Now do this: START-ALL PROGRAMS-ACCESSORIES-SYSTEM TOOLS-SYSTEM RESTORE. I'm hoping you actually have RESTORE utility turned on...Now select the restore date BEFORE it quit working. DONE! Windows will run as it used to run when all worked well. I use RESTORE all the time and I have 100% success rate!
