Re: My computer only has a 25 pin serial port. How can I...

If you only have a 25 pin serial port available, you can use a 9 pin - 25 pin adapter to connect the serial cable from the camera to the computer. Another option is to add an addition serial interface card to one of your card slots. These should be available at local computer stores.

Need serial adaptor/cable


Welcome to FixYa! There are DB9 to usb adaptors at any electronics store like Radio Shack or Fry's. Also there are serial connectors that connect internally to motherboards having a COM port connection if this is a desktop/tower computer. Though he likes the camera he might like the fact that newer cameras have a much higher resolution than previously available for much less than he may have paid for the present one.
If you have any further questions feel free to post them here and include the brand/model of the new computer. Steve Medley

"Camera not connected." -- Serial connection


The "Camera not connected" error message indicates a communications problem in the serial port connection between the camera and the computer. Simply put, the computer cannot find the camera it is being asked to connect with. Whenever an external device (digital camera, scanner, Palm Pilot, etc.) is connected to a computer through its serial port, a communications error is possible. There is usually no single "most likely" reason for the conflict -- it could be a hardware issue as easily as it could be a software issue.

Can I use the Fun! Flash 640 with a USB port?


A 9-pin serial connection must be available on your computer to connect a PhotoMAX Fun! Flash 640 digital camera. This camera model does not have a USB driver, so a USB-to-serial adapter will not function properly.

USB port with the PDC 640 camera?


The Polaroid PDC 640 digital camera connects to an available 9-pin serial port only -- it does not support the use of a USB/serial converter. However, you can use a SmartMedia Card Reader with the camera's reremovable memory to download the images via the USB port to your computer.

Serial port?


There are two basic ways to work around this situation: * Use a PS/2 mouse instead of a serial mouse. Using a PS/2 mouse will free up your serial port so that you can connect the camera to the computer. Check the computer's documentation to see if this type of mouse is available for your system. * Enable MouseKeys on your computer. MouseKeys allows you to use the numeric keypad to move the mouse pointer and to click, double-click and drag. After enabling MouseKeys, you can disconnect the serial mouse and connect the camera to the computer. Click Here to see an animated demonstration, or follow the instructions below. To enable MouseKeys: 1. From the Windows toolbar, select Start > Settings > Control Panels. 2. Double-click the Accessibility Options icon. 3. Select the Mouse tab. 4. Select Use MouseKeys and change settings, if desired. 5. Click OK.
