Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7 Digital Camera

Camera not recognised by pc

Dear FixYa, I have had a panasonic lumix dmc-fz7 for the last year and it has worked perfectly.I recently moved my pc from one room to another and now when I plug the camera in to the usb socket nothing happens on the computer, it does not recognise it at all and I cant transfer the contents of the sd card. When I select "my computer" no external E drive is present indicating that the camera has not been recognised or detected. When the camera is plugged in to the usb the camera lcd screen shows " picture is displayedfor 4:3 tv and not "access" as I would normally expect. I have tried connecting the camera to different usb ports and recharging the battery. Please help I am getting increasingly frustrated. Thank you.

    When I connect my camera to my PC, I get a message on the camera screen in red 'ACCESS' and on the PC 'your camera is not connected' or 'your camera is in use'

I have found a solution download and run this fix from Microsoft.
You have to log off then back on....this has worked for me my two cameras are now offering the transfer wizard once more.

If you have no joy with the Microsoft fix

Picture display for 4:3 tv means wide screen. So check out your manual to get the camera back to normal TV format.

I have a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ7. The problem is it doesn't read the memory card anymore. It keeps saying, "Memory card error. Please check the card." is there a quick fix to this or is this...

Ok, came accross this problem. After searching and searching, I downloaded the user guide ( who knew?! ) and the reason that is happening is because the Lumix DMC-FZ7 is not able to process an SD card bigger than 2 GB.

I switched it to a 1 GB and camera is back working!!

I hope this helps
