Try 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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

My camera keeps saying card error? It wont let me take pics or even look at ones already on the camera?.... Just keeps saying card error. What should I do??


Welcome to Fixya.

There are two possible reasons why your caemra keeps on displaying CARD ERROR.

First reason is not formatted for use in the camera. The solution there is you just have to format the memory card. In order for you to format the memory card you just have to click on this link and refer to page 89 in formatting memory card.

Second reason is memory cards need to be clean. You just have to clean it with soft and dry clothes. If the message is repeadted. That's the time that memory card needs to be replaced.

I hope this information give you a relief on your problem.
Thank you for using FixYa.

You may need to get the new WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) drivers. When you connect a digital camera to any laptop that runs WinXP, the OSmay not recognize the camera. If you download and install new drivers from the Web site, you receive the following error message when WinXP tries to detect the camera: "Windows image acquisition service error system cannot find file specified ‘imaging'." To fix this problem, you must first remove all current related camera drivers and reinstall the updated drivers.
