Question about Toshiba PDR-M700 Digital Camera
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!
