"Failed to Connect to Camera." -- 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.

Error - Kernel32.dll
Microsoft defines Kernel32 errors as follows:
"The Kernel32.dll file is a 32-bit dynamic link library file that is found in Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows Millenium Edition (Me). The Kernel32.dll file handles memory management, input/output operations, and interrupts. When you start Windows, Kernel32.dll is loaded into a protected memory space so that other programs do not take over that memory space.
On occasion, you may receive an invalid page fault (IPF) error message. This error message occurs when a program tries to access the Kernel32.dll protected memory space. Occasionally, the error message is caused by one particular program, and other times the error message is provoked by multiple files and programs."

ERROR: code 28 -- Windows XP & USB 2.0
This message appears because Windows XP did not originally support the USB 2.0 specification.
However, as of May 2002, the final release version of the Microsoft USB 2.0 drivers for Windows XP is available at the Windows Update Site. The driver is designated Microsoft USB Driver Version 5.1.2600.0.

"Camera not connected" -- USB connection
The "Camera not connected" error message indicates a communications problem in the USB connection between the camera and the computer. Simply put, the computer cannot find the camera it is being asked to connect with.
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.
Fortunately, the most common causes of this error message are also the most easily identified:
* Make sure that the computer's operating system is USB compatible.
Microsoft Windows 95 and NT operating systems are not compatible with USB technology. (In addition, PhotoMAX and PhotoImpression software cannot be installed on Windows NT systems.) If you have an incompatible operating system, you must upgrade to Windows 98, Me, 2000 or XP to use a USB connection. Your computer must also have the appropriate USB connectors.
* Make sure that the camera power is on.
Follow the camera instructions to turn the camera on. Some cameras conserve battery power by turning off automatically after a few minutes of inactivity. If necessary, install new batteries or connect the camera to AC power (if it has an AC power adapter).
* Make sure that the camera is correctly set to access images.
Make sure the camera is turned on and that its mode dial (if it has one) is correctly set for transferring pictures to the computer. Refer to the camera user guide for more information.
* Make sure that the camera cable has not been damaged or become disconnected from the computer.
Confirm that both of the connectors are firmly attached. Check the cable for breaks, kinks or other defects, and check the connectors for bent or broken pins. If the cable is broken or kinked, obtain a new cable.
