    I have the same issue. I've plugged in a 1GB SD card to the appropriate slot, and I already have the USB connection in place and working with a 2GB USB flash drive and an external USB hard drive. The SD card worked on my PC at home but it's not working with my monitor. Any suggestions?

Brightness of my desktop has been increased what to do??


I've recently come to the realization that my computer monitor screen is not properly calibrated. In different web forums where photos are posted, I'm noticing that I can't make out a lot of the pictures people are talking about - they're too dark. I've also noticed this when printing out CD covers - detail in the shadows that I never saw on the screen. Also, every time I show people digital photos, I have to turn up the brightness (in Photoshop) to anywhere between 25 - 50 %! Needless to say, I need to calibrate my monitor. For a test, I downloaded one of those "black level" graphs whrere the squares go from dark to light and you should be able to see every square clearly - I can only see half before they disappear into all blackness.

I have one of those old "turn of the century" big Dell Monitors that came with my original computer back in 2000. It has two "select" buttons (- +) and two "adjust" buttons (- +) with a row of icons (showing which parameter you're adjusting) with lights underneath on the left. I know that the "sun" icon is brightness and the "half moon" icon is contrast, but I don't know what the rest are.

After selecting "brightness," I hit the adjust "+" button a couple of times and I expected to see a bar graph showing my adjustment, but there was nothing, so I left it alone. I don't want to screw up my monitor so I want to make sure that I'm doing this right. It says "recall" under the select and adjust buttons with "arrows" pointing to two buttons. I assume that you press these to go back to your default settings.

So, how do I go about doing this correctly? __________________

Hi, I have had my camera for two years however for some reason it is not uploading to my computer.


Hi, I've found the L18 was always finicky with transferring photos, your best bet would be to get a usb card reader and put the SD card into that to transfer the photos.

My canon A480 powershot has hundreds of pics on it. I went to look at them this morning and now only 14 remain .. how can i get them back .. ??


Jessica, this occurred because you didn't intitially format the card in the camera when you first got it. It will work fine at first, but eventually what you experienced will happen. But you don't want to format your card just yet as it will erase it.
Instead, to recover your photos, you'll need to use a card reader with your computer to see if the files can be copied directly and saved to your computer. If you don't already have a reader, don't fret as they are very inexpensive. For example, here's one that I use that is very good. You may also purchase card readers at your local store, such as W or K mart, but they may be a bit more expensive at brick and mortar stores. With the card reader, you insert the card into the reader, then insert the reader into your USB port. The card then shows up as a hard drive, that you can copy and paste the missing photos from onto your computer. Also recommend using the reader in the future to download your photos from your camera, as it is very fast and relatively error free.
Now if by chance your photos still don't show up with the reader, don't fret as they're still there on the card. You'll just need to use recovery software with your reader to get them. It's very easy, here's a listing of very good freeware for that purpose.
Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, format the card IN YOUR CAMERA using the camera's format feature. This will rejuvenate the card so it will be good as new, but it will also erase it. So again, only do this AFTER you've recovered the photos.
Good Luck!

Uploading problem


There are a few different ways to upload them. I have found that when I connect the camera to the computer, sometimes I get scrambled photos. When I use a card reader, connected directly into the USB port, I get all good pictures. If I connect the camera OR the card reader to a USB hub, at least half of my pictures get scrambled. I take 3-4 thousand photos in a years time. I was happy to end the problem.

I want to transfer my photos from Olympus Master to an email. I can't seem to find my pictures the way I used to with my old camera. I used to be able to find the photos in my documents. Please help......


Need more info, but you might be better off just to get a multi card reader for about $20 - $30.

1. Plug your multi card reader to your computer via USB port
2. push in your memory card from your camera
3. Memory card will automatically open, or you can open from "my computer" folder.

Multi card reader will come with instructions anyway.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


It sounds like your XD card is corrupted. How and why i couldn't tell you. You will need to get the pictures recovered from the card using a special software (image recovery software, can down load for free from some web sites, or some companies can try and do it for you) and then try and format the card in the camera. DO NOT FORMAT THE CARD BEFORE YOU RETRIVE YOUR IMAGES. If you do all traces of the images may be lost.

All the best and happy snapping.

Screen reading memory card not initialized


Hello


  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    The Contrast screen pops on all the time


    It looks like your UP button contact is demaged.
    SOLUTION is to insert a piece from your business card mostly above the button to adjust it down or up. It works fine.
