Thanks Pena, I had the wrong mode on my camera - after hours and hours of reading, down loading uninstalling, reinstalling... good grief ... I was ready to tear out my hair. I thought I read up on my camera!! It was on camera mode and of course it HAS to be on play back mode. Again kuddos for the perfect solution Pena!

You can get the software from Canon support. Click on the link I have provided below, scroll down the page and select your OS (XP, Vista or Win 7 etc) Click on "Software" and a drop down list will appear. Look down the list and download the application NOT the updater.
Hi Charles - Panasonic doesn't offer software downloads for this camera - it may be due to the sheer volume ans size of the files on the disk. You can check out Panasonic support page for your camera here:
There are no drivers for digital camera - Windows[98se/mill/2000/XP etc] does it all. Remove any software you may have loaded from the supplied disk. Simply plug the camera into the computer,ensuring it is switched on.and set to the upload mode. Windows takes it from there
you need to go ahead and let it start in sfae mode, check any changes that you made recently to your software & hardware, programs and drivers.
This is normal for windows to open this way IF you have shut the computer down in a way windows thinks there was a problem , or is a problem.
In safe mode windows does not load all the third party software , just enough to get windows up so you can find a problem.
Soo let it start in safe mode , if you find no problems after ot starts, shut it down correctly and restart, it should start the second time normally if there are no problems.
Post here again if it keeps up.
Select play back menu and select print time stamp. For your Knowledge,do you like or not All photographs taken with this camera having a data file with it, called meta data. All these file in formation can be viewed in clicking file info in photoshop. The Metadata tags defined in the Exif standard cover a broad spectrum:
Digital cameras will record the current date and time in hour, minute,seconds and save this in the metadata.
The most common cause associated with the PC not detecting the camera is due to the fact that either the devie drivers have not been installed, or are corrupt.
It is important to thoroughly read the Software Installation instruction manual as with some Cameras, the user is required to connect the Camera via the USB cable first, then insert the CD that came with the camera and then install the software and drivers.
With other Cameras, the reverse is necessary, eg., you are required to install the software first and then connect the Camera via the USB cable.
My experience has convinced me that even though Camera manufacturers recommend one or other of the 2 methods mentioned above, for whatever reason, sometimes the drivers just don't get installed. This may be due to things peculiar to your own pc system or conflicts with other software on your machine which prevent successful installation of the camera software or drivers.
If this is the case, then you can access Device Manager in your PC and scroll down to USB Serial Bus Controllers and check to see if the USB and other drivers are installed. In most cases if the software has been installed but the drivers are not, or are corrupt, this will be highlighted in Device Manager with a Large Yellow ? (question mark) From there you have the option to check if the device drivers have been installed and also if the device is reported as working correctly. You may then engage the help of the Hardware Wizard to uninstall the drivers if they are corrupt, or install them if they are missing.
Whichever is the case, it is usually necessary to restart your PC so that it can detect the camera when it has rebooted up.
To locate Device manager on XP > click on Start > then right click My Computer > next left click Properties from the drop down menu > and then from the Sytem Properties Window which comes up, > left click on the Hardware Tab > then left click on the Device Manager Box and you're there.
