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?

Re: USB connection to computer

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.

Re: USB connection to computer

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.

I am trying to locate the usb port on the nikon 950.


Hi,
the 950 has no USB connection, its pre USB, there is a rs232 serial port but it is incredibly slow.. i mean really slow.. hours to download a 64mb card.. its the headphone like socket under the rubber flap on the edge near the shutter button. If you don't have a cable getting one may be a problem these days

By far the best way to get pictures downloaded is with a CF card reader available from almost anywhere and would download your images in seconds over usb2 and wont need special drivers.

Happy snappin

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.

USB connection problem using Windows 98 Second Edition.


The cause of this problem can be traced to both the computer's hardware configuration and Windows 98SE (Second Edition). PhotoMAX cameras and other devices featuring USB (Universal Serial Bus) connections may not work with computers running Windows 98 Second Edition and equipped with the following computer hardware: * an AMD processor (350 MHz or higher) * VIA Technologies USB Host Controller or SiS 7001 USB Host Controller To find out what USB Host Controller is on your system: 1. Click Start > Settings and choose Control Panel. 2. Double click the System icon. 3. Choose the Device Manager tab. A window similar to the one shown below appears. 4. Expand the Universal Serial Bus controllers listing by clicking on the "+" sign next to the listing. 5. Note the type of host controller in the listing. The example above shows the SiS 7001 PCI to USB Open Host Controller.

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.
