Open Question

My PDR-M700 Digital Camera will not connect to my computer when i plug it in with a USB

Okay, so, I don't have available batteries and i don't want to waste so much time and money buying batteries all the time for my camera, when i could just charge it from my computer using a USB cord. But the problem is, i tried to plug in my PDR-M700 Digital Camera to my laptop with a USB cord and i tried to install my camera onto my computer so i can charge it from my laptop... but unfortunately, it won't show up anywhere in my files or anything. And also, i tried to add the device(my camera) to my laptop, and it says "this device did not install". can someone please help? PLEASE? :(.... thankyou :)...

SOURCE: Charging battery

Hi Pat, When charging the battery the light should definitely be red. When it turns green it's charged. I would exchange your camera for another PDR-M5 if you can. I actually had to do the same thing - noticed a big difference with the second one - including fit and finish....think that maybe Toshiba has a quality control issue. I just returned mine (second one) yesterday - was a hard decision - love the features - 3X zoom - video - speed, etc.....but got fed up with the picture quality indoors - too many out of focus - couldn't count on it. Also all pictures - in/out - tended to be dark - drab looking - always had to lighten using the software before printing. This is a $1250 camera in Canada after tax w/extra 16 meg smartmedia which you need at the minimum so there are no excuses. Hope you have better luck with yours!

Before you connect the camera to the computer, install the drivers from the cd which came with it.

I don't have the CD for the FinePix Viewer. Is this software available to download

You don't need any special software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I am trying to transfer pics from my camera to my pc ??? i plugged it in and card is in camera but nothing?? help?

Here are some steps to run through to make sure the camera works as you'd expect it:

  1. Ensure that all cables are properly secured from the computer to the camera.
  2. Ensure that the memory card has not been dislodged from the camera.
  3. Check the camera's memory socket and the memory card for debris. A can of 'compressed air' can work wonders (typically available at any computer store).
  4. Make certain that the port connecting the camera to the computer is not damaged. Look for any bent pins in the camera's memory slot. Try replacing the camera cable. If the camera uses a USB port, try another USB port. If you don't have another USB port available, try plugging in another USB device to verify that the USB port is working.
  5. Check the power source on the camera. If you're using batteries while attempting to transfer the pictures to the PC, try changing your batteries, recharge the batteries, or use an A/C adapter.
  6. Try reinstalling the digital camera software on your computer. In most cases, reinstalling over top of the existing software will resolve this issue.
  7. Take the media out of the digital camera and attempt to download it to another computer. If all else fails, try formatting the camera media. Most newer-generation digital cameras equipped with an LCD screen have a menu option that can format your media.
Hope this helps.

I can't download all my images, I have 10 images that will not download. It downloads 52 (1/52 - 52/52) but the camera set up another set of pictures 1/10 - 10/10 that will not download. Can you...

Below is the standard procedure for checking for solutions. If you have a card reader available, I'd recommend removing the memory card from the camera and trying to download the images directly from it.

  1. Ensure that all cables are properly secured from the computer to the camera.
  2. Ensure that the memory card has not been dislodged from the camera.
  3. Check the camera's memory socket and the memory card for debris. A can of 'compressed air' can work wonders (typically available at any computer store).
  4. Make certain that the port connecting the camera to the computer is not damaged. Look for any bent pins in the camera's memory slot. Try replacing the camera cable.

My camera won't charge, i plug it into the computer throught the USB & the camera lights up like it's actually charging but after a cpl hours I took it off the USB & as soon as i cut it on it cuts...

The C1033 does NOT charge batteries. By plugging it into the computer you've actually drained the batteries faster since the camera has to spend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). Put in a fresh set of batteries, and next time don't leave it connected to your computer.

You don't need any additional software to use the camera.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Windows Photo Gallery on a Windows machine or iPhoto on a Mac.

I press the shutter button a red light flashes in the viewfinder

Your focus or lighting is too low for the picture. Add more light, and hold the button down half way to self adjust to see if it goes away. Change the battery to a lithium battery, which helps the digital cameras work their best.
Let me know if this helps.
