If the camera is working - invest in a USB card reader- this is a cheaper option than a new camera

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and...

First of all, why on earth would you keep 1000 pics on the memory card? They are not meant for storage....they can be easily corrupted and you could lose your pics. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. Then, format the card in the camera for a fresh start and download and format on a regular basis from now on. 5981c0d.jpg

Pics not showing up

Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.

Transferring pics

Have you taken new pictures with the device, or are these already possibly transferred to your system/PC? If they are already on your PC, it will not add them again (to save you space).
If you chose transfer all, what do you get as a result? Check the log for help.

LOST CD

Pecasa is a great free software. Try it.

You do not need cameras software to download pics from your camera, btw. Just plug in your camera to USB port and it shows as an external DRIVE or USB STORAGE device in your MYCOMPUTER folder. Just click on its drive letter and you are looking at your cameras memory.

Click on the folder called DCIM and then subfolder(s) named depending on camera model. For Panasonic it is 100_PANA for example. Click on this and here is your pics. View, Drag and Drop, Delete, etc any pic just as if it was already on your computer.

To down load all pics, Drag and Drop (or cut and paste)the whole pic folder (100_PANA for example) to a location on your computer, as \Documents\Pictures. To delete all pics on camera, right click on pics folder and delete 100_PANA folder. or folder where your pics show up on your camera.

Paul, you do not need a cameras software to download pics to a computer. When you plug camera into a USB port, got to your computers MyComputer folder and look at the Devices attached.
You should find a storage device that says CAMERA or USB Storage Device.

Click on this and this is your camera showing up as a Storage Device, similar to a USB Flash Drive, on your computer.

In the long run, buy yourself a mini USB Card Reader so you do not have to worry about unique USB cables and software in the future. I recommend San Disks MobileMate for either SD or Memory Stiks. I use the SD+ which reads SD, SDHC, and MicroSD cards in a size not much larger that a Flash Drive. It also saves on your camera battery use, since it uses your USB port for power. You will never go back, since it is universal for any future cameras you may buy, if they use SD or MemStik cards.

Can't download pix anymore

Loey, No camera CD is needed to download pics. When you plug your camera into a USB port, it will appear as a Drive in your MyComputer folder. You can then click on the drive letter assigned to it by Win to look at what is on it, just like you would look at files on your C: harddrive.

So the first step is to find out if Win is recognizing it in My Computer. It will probable be drive G: and will probably be named CAMERA or USB STORAGE device.

If it is, double click on it to Open it and find your Pic Files.
If it is not showing up, then some cameras have to be SetUp to be seen as a USB Storage Drive. Don't know about TZ3.

In any case, by you a SanDisk MobileMate SD+ mini card reader stick and dump stupid and sometimes unique USB Cables. Also doesn't''t use your camera battery power to view and download, your pics. It uses your USB Port Power and again looks like a USB Flash Drive in your My Computer. NICE!

$15 at Staples or $10 at RadioShack when on sale.

Spider-man 3-in-1 digital camera model #94044

Had same problem -- after removing and re-installing both the software and camera (multiple times), I found that I could get the pics via Picasa -- in Picasa, the camera shows up 2 different times for me, as a "dual mode camera"; the 2nd entry works, letting me import the pics. Terrible pics, btw, very blurry and grainy, even when taken in bright light (get what you pay for, right?).

I hate booting back to Windows, though -- I use Linux -- but even gphoto2 (which can handle just about ANY camera that Linux won't handle natively as a USB storage device) can't handle the proprietary encoding format Sakar uses. Oh well.
