Most brands of cameras deliver a CD with the camera, containing software, needed to backup, transfer and work with the pictures you shot, to a computer.
Most of the time there is software is for both, Windows and MAC.
Before you connect the camera to any computer, you should install the software. The disk also has the drivers for the old operating systems.
If you lost the CD, or just don't know where it is right now, you can go to the site of your camera brand and try to download the software you need. For that look under support.
If your camera is old, and the brand does not exist anymore, try a freeware picture transfer / editing software pack. Like Gimp or Adobe Photoshop elements.
Just connecting a camera to a computer causes two things. The camera shuts down, and the computer won't recognise the camera. So nothing works.
If you can't get software form your brand, you always can install other generic software like Ulead, Pixir, BeFunkey, Gimp, Photoshop express. Or if that is not possible you could install an external memory card reader and download the pictures via de memory card reader.

now my computer does no seem to recognize that the camera is attatched at all,

  • Do you mean to say it recognized the camera at one time in the past?
  • What happens when you attach the USB cable?
  • What operating system are you running on your computer?
  • Did you try to re-install the drivers?

My computer do not recognize my canon vixia hf20 double click on my computer icon : computer do not recognize the camcorder canon vixia hf20


Be sure that you have installed he driver correctly ..and the cable is well plugged...,another thing to check is the camera's display and see if it asks for a connection confirmation in the moment you plug it in ...if it does..choose PC connect ..and after that will work ..
also check into the device manager and see if the camera is present there ..even if it appears in yellow with an ask sign on it ...this meaning that the driver is not installed or damaged or not the proper one..

select the operation system ..download ..reinstall and go for it ...but first check what I suggested..

Computer won't recognize my camera


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

Computer not recognizing Camera


Are you always using the same USB-port on your PC? If yes try to use another USB-port.
If the above solution will not work try to re-install the camera drivers.

USB not recognized, no safe removal icon, wont switch off


I had the same problem. Nothing seemed to help, I even re-installed Nikon View. This helped, though. After you've connected the USB cable to both computer and camera, twist the camera end of the cable towards front of the camera. It seems like either the cable or the socket in the camera is damaged.
