Question about Epson PhotoPC 3000Z Digital Camera

2 Answers

USB connection to computer

I bought a 3000Z but can't get it to download using USB, it works ok using the serial port, but that is very slow. I'm using Windows 98 SE. My USB ports are ok because I use other devices on them. When trying to hook up the camera I never get a new hardware found indication, I tried MS and Epson online for possible driver updates and couldn't find anything to help. I'm thinking there is a problem with the camera. It also makes a rather loud snap type sound when the shutter button is pressed, this may be normal but it seems louder than I've heard on other digital cameras. Anyone have any suggestions or should I send the camera back as defective?

Go to 'add new hardware' and say somewhere driver from disk... Then goto epsons driver CD (provided with cam..) in the directory 'epson/winPNP/ There is the PNP driver for the Epson camera USB.. It took for me a while before i found it. And epson installation doesn't install it by default ... strange That 'click' what you hear.. Goto setup and then to 'camera setup' there you should see somewhere something with 'beep'... switch it off.

Have you installed Sierra Image Expert, with this installed go to menue item Camera, and click on View or Get All etc.I do have a problem with this program in that it will not make a new directorey but this can be overcome by first making the new directorey with Explorer. The sound on the camera can be adjusted or turned down.

Have two computers to connect to a printer. One computer uses a serial the other a parallel port. The printer has only one usb port. Is there a dual cable or adapter available to make the transition?


You won't find a cable or adapter that will allow both computers to connect simultaneously to the printer. This is because the printers would interfere with each other's signals. That said, adapters are available, but not cheap. Again, the problem is the language that each type of connector uses is different. On top of that, chances are that the printer software would not allow you to select a serial port output on the printer knowing it does not support serial port interface. Same issue with the parallel port. You apparently are using very old computers if all you have is serial or parallel port outputs. You may be able to get a USB card to install in the computer(s) to provide you with a USB interface. This would be cheaper than attempting to get a pair of adapter cables and more likely to work better as well. Often the adapter cables don't work right and will cause slow printing. Also, you CAN get a switching box that can connect two USB computer ports to a single printer.

Depending on what port do you have on the back (or side) of the printer (USB, parallel, serial). Use the correct cable (USB, parallel, or serial cable) to connect the printer to the correct port on the computer (USB, parallel, or serial). You need to install the software driver on the computer before it will work. Google the name and model of the printer to download the driver to your computer.

I have a 180 and tried to connect to my computer with a serial to USB converter, and downloaded Artlink on my computer. Keeps saying there is no connection to the serial port. Any ideas?


yes you have to make sure you have a com port free and ensure that that is the only usb port you use for that. if you use the usb slot for anything else it always says that the serial port is busy.you have to go into your systems on your computer and find the usb port and it should list the com ports. ou need to find one that is not in use. they will be com port 1. 2. 3. or 4. then you have try each one in turn on your computer to deduct which is slots are actually which number. its a bit of a fiddle but once done label the slot for bernina only.i only have three on mine and so i bought a powered usb 4 port hub and i use that in the other slots so i always have enough usb slots.hope this helps

What do i do with my black wire(cable) that came with my calculator, i bought this calculator from walmart


The cable that has terminals like and audio cable is an Input/Output cable. You use it to connect two calculators through their IO ports.
The TI silver cable with a USB end connects the IO port of the calculator to a USB port of a computer.
If you have a TI Black cable (very unlikely) you use it to connect the IO port of the calculator to a Serial port on a desktop computer. Most recent laptops do not have a serial port anymore.

Since new computers don't have serial ports I assume this is an older computer. The older computers had usb ports that were usb 1. All devices now are usb 2.0 Could this be your issue?

Pci card doesint work


What you want is a USB hub.  That will allow you to connect more than two USB devices to your computer.  There are two types, USB 2.0 and USB 1.1.  USB 1.1 will work for most slow speed devices, USB 2.0 is better for cameras and hard disks that have the support.  You should confirm which version of USB your computer has, but you should be OK getting a USB 4-port hub, plugging that into your computer, then plugging your keyboard and mouse into the hub and using the other port for the new peripheral that you wish to install.  Old PCI cards are problematic because you need the correct drivers.  You also need to make sure you plug them into the proper PCI port.  It sounds like the device you got from e-bay might be bad, so you shouldn't continue to use it.  If you post the make / model of your computer we might be able to suggest a new PCI card that will work if you still want to add more ports to your computer.

Problem connecting from usb to db9


Hello,

There are serial port to USB adapters, but can't you use a USB cable by itself? You can find the adapters at cyberguys.com or milestek.com

My pictures transfer to the computer too slowly.


If you are transferring Tiff files or video clips, you can expect the transfer to take much longer than it does for JPEG files, due to large file sizes. The transfer speed is especially slow when you are using a serial connection. If your system has less than 32MB RAM, the transfer speed may be slow. Try using virtual memory. See your computer documentation or system help for more information. Check the port setting in your Windows Control Panel. You may need to set your port to a faster speed. See your Windows documentation or help system for more information. If you're transferring pictures to an application through EPSON Photo!3 and you use the PhotoEnhance(tm) feature, the transfer will take longer. Try transferring without PhotoEnhance.
