Re: Computer "hangs up" when displaying the Polaroid...
This error or system hang-up is usually caused by:
1. the camera driver software attempting to read a corrupted photo; or
2. there are too many photo thumbnails stored in the PhotoMAX temporary storage area.
In either case, the problem can be corrected by manually deleting the Fun! Digital 320 camera thumbnails from the Polaroid Album (using the Windows Explorer or My Computer icons).
Follow these steps to delete the Fun! Digital 320 temporary files:
Step 1 -- Locate the temporary photo files
If you are familiar with Windows Explorer, simply browse directly to:
C:\Program Files\Polaroid\PhotoMAX SE\Digital 320
If you are new to browsing the file system, follow these steps:
1. Double-click on the My Computer icon on the desktop.
2. Double-click on the C: drive.
3. Double-click on the Program Files folder.
4. Double-click on the Polaroid folder.
5. Double-click on the PhotoMAX SE folder.
6. Double-click on the Digital 320 folder.
Step 2 -- Delete the temporary photo files
Inside the Digital 320 folder, you will see many files, most of which will be bitmap image files. All of the bitmap files that start with dsc_ (example: dsc_005.bmp) must be deleted.
To delete the files, you can either drag them into the Recycle Bin, or highlight each file by single-clicking on it and pressing the Delete key on the keyboard. To select multiple files at once, hold down the Shift key on the keyboard as you click on them, then press Delete.
IMPORTANT: Do not delete the following files from the Digital 320 folder:
* Polaroid Album.exe

Downloading images from a digital camera can be very easy if you keep these basic steps in mind.
After loading the PhotoMax software on your computer:
1. Make sure that both the camera and computer are turned off.
2. Confirm that the camera has adequate power (using the AC adapter is recommended; otherwise, make sure that there are fresh batteries in the camera).
3. Plug the serial cable that came with your camera into the serial output of the camera.
4. Plug the wide end of the serial cable into the COM port (serial connection) of the computer.
5. Turn the camera on and start the computer.
6. Launch the PhotoMax software (double-click the icon) from the desktop.
7. Click on Get Photo.

To delete photos from the SmartMedia memory card in your camera, you must first download them to your computer.
Follow this procedure to transfer your photos from the camera to your computer:
1. Make sure that your PDC 640 is connected to your computer and both are turned on. The "PC" icon should appear on the status panel on the top of the camera.
2. Open the PhotoMAX application on your PC.
3. Click Get Photo.
Note: If you are using PhotoMAX Pro to transfer pictures, you need to select PDC 640 Camera from the Select Source dialog box (select File > Acquire > Select Source), and then select File > Acquire.
4. Click Album or flashPath.
5. Select the album in which you want to save your images, or click New Album to create a new album.

8. Click Get All to transfer all the images in the camera memory to your computer, or select the images you want to transfer to your computer and click Get Selected.
The images are transferred to the selected album, which is located in the PhotoMAX Albums folder. The PDC 640 Twain Driver window closes.

The system requirements are:

While it appears that the system is locking up, the actual problem is that a message prompt in the PhotoMAX 2.0 software is hiding beneath other open windows and needs to be answered before proceeding.
In this instance, the PDC 640 TWAIN Driver window has been preset to always be the "top" window, obscuring any other windows that may be open behind it.
The PhotoMAX 2.0 window must be "active" (or "brought to the top") to answer any message prompts. Once the message prompt is answered, you will be able to download images.
To deactivate the PDC 640 TWAIN Driver window's "Always on Top" preset:
1. Launch the PhotoMAX application.
2. Select Get Photo.
3. Select Camera or Scanner. The Acquire From window appears.
4. Select Twain device and click OK. The Select Source window appears.
5. Highlight PDC 640 and click Select. The album window appears next, followed by the PDC 640 TWAIN Driver window.
6. Right-click on the PDC 640 TWAIN Driver window and deselect (i.e. uncheck) "Always on Top".
To move the PhotoMAX 2.0 window forward:
1. Launch the PhotoMAX application.
2. Click on Get Photo.
3. Click on From Album.
4. When the album opens, answer YES to the question "The contents of this album have been changed. Do you want to save the changes?".
5. Click on the Acquire icon at the top of the album window to select the PDC 640 camera and download the thumbnails from the camera. Your system will no longer appear to lock up.
