** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that
folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install or Guides and Manuals if needing Orbicam instructions - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility

I am asking anyone who has firmware for casio ex z40, to help me clear the system error. please send it to me to my email address([email protected])


Sorry, we don't send e-mails. Only when you have the right tools and software to flash a camera from Casio, you could use firmware. You can't put in there firmware, when the camera is not 100% functional. Once the flashing of the new firmware starts, it can't be stopped, because it is writing new software that has no connection with the older software. And a part of the old with a part of the new software does not make one correct program. So NEVER try to solve a system error with a update. The system error must be repaired by a pro.

How do you delete old email 'address'es in my computer file


Which email account ?

Erase Email Addresses in My Computer


Email addresses can be stored on a computer if you use email software, such as Microsoft Office Outlook and Yahoo Messenger Beta.


Deleting email addresses manually from these programs does not actually completely erase them from your computer.


To erase email addresses permanently, meaning that a hard drive recovery program will not be able to restore them if it is used, requires a process called formatting, which completely erases the information on a hard drive.


Click on the shortcut "My Computer," which you can locate on your desktop.


Right click "Local Disk (C:)" and select the "Format" option.


Change the "Allocation Size Unit" to "Default Allocation Size."


Click the "Start" button.

The email addresses, as well as the rest of the files on the hard drive, will now be erased.


Delete a Live Mail Email Address


Windows Live Mail is a part of the Windows Live suite of productivity and entertainment programs, and it is intended to be the new free email client for Windows beginning with Windows 7.


After trying Windows Live Mail, you may decide that you have added too many email addresses and that you would prefer to use the email client to check only one address.


Remove an email address from Windows Live Mail to reduce the clutter in your email inbox.
Launch Windows Live Mail, and browse to the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen.


Click "Accounts."

Click the email account that you would like to delete.


Click the "Remove" button.

A message will appear to remind you that any messages belonging to the email account that are not backed up in another location will be deleted permanently.


Click "OK" to confirm.

The account will be deleted immediately.


Click "Close" to return to Windows Live Mail.


Delete Hotmail Adresses


Log in to your hotmail account and click "Help."


Search for "Cancel Account" and select "Why are all my email messages gone?"

Expand the option that says "Close a free Hotmail account" and click "Windows Live Hotmail close account."


Click "Close Account" on the page that opens.


If you do not sign in to your account for 365 days, your account will also be deleted.





Hope this helps.

Error code 99. Please tellme what this means.


This is what the people at the canon tech support say to do for error 99



read this!! :)

The guy at tech support listened and then told me that the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens’ gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them.

Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it’s doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.

I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and behold, it worked



hope this works for you!!!! have a nice day!! :) :)

Why can I not log in to my facebook after a complete procedure?


Hello,

Please try to remember your email address and your exact password with correct keys that are registered in your Face book. Also try to erase your Cache and your browsing history cause it also adds the factor especially if it is full then you cannot process another user verification especially using the online user verification processing if your cache and history browsing is full. So my suggestion please erase and empty your cache and history browsing and used the registered email address and password in your facebook account to be able to access your account.

Thanks

Card error


As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased or unable to be downloaded to computer. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and people have had much success in recovering images.

Hello jessieg,
Press the additional functions button located between the diplay and the nine key pad (nine key is used to enter numeric values such as number of copies requested....etc...) Once you have pressed additional functions a new menu will be displayed. The last item on the right is "address book settings". Press it. Now I am going by memory, which is scary. you should have a field that says register new address. This is also the area that provides you with the ability to add a new address, edit an existing address, or delete/erase an existing address. You should see a list of all addresses. Touch the one you want to delete. Once you have selected one the "erase " button should become active. Press erase. I cant remember all the stuff since I am not in front of one but I bet you have it from here. that is unless they have password protected the address. If that is the case then you will need to go to Canon's website and download the reference manuals for your device,I believe the facsimile guide would be the most helpful, since password protecected aspects of the device require more space and time than "FIXYA" is practical for. But I bet you have a firm handle on the situation by now because I have faith in ya!. I hope I have helped you,truly. If I have, please feel free to let the folks at "FIXYA" know I did help you. I work on these *^$*(())_&$$ ole copiers all day long, but I enjoy truly helping folks after hours. Although I am not on the clock, I like the pat on the head and the good feeling I gat when i help people because I want to and not because I have to ! :-} I hope you have a great day. .................SPINAL..........

"Internal memory requires formatting."


This error message indicates that the internal memory in the camera requires formatting or is corrupt. You must format the internal memory. CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a memory card during formatting may damage the card. (Formatting internal memory also erases email addresses and album names. To restore addresses and albums, see Kodak EasyShare software Help.)
