While USB connections are significantly faster and easier to set up than older serial or SCSI connections they are not foolproof. Here are some tips: Be sure to connect the cable properly One side of the cable is "keyed" so it will only fit properly one way. Do not force it in if it does not smoothly connect. Notice how the USB plug is "keyed" and will only fit properly in one direction. The USB connector on the back of the computer. Connect directly to a USB port on the computer. While USB hubs allow many devices to connect to a computer they are not always reliable for high-speed connections like digital cameras. Connect to a port on the back of the computer. Many computers have extra USB ports on the front or on the keyboard. These are generally built-in hubs which may cause problems as described above. Connect to an AC adapter or use a freshly charged battery To prevent problems during transfer be sure that the camera has enough power to complete image transfers. Remove other devices To troubleshoot problems, remove any other USB devices and connect just the Nikon product for testing.

Hp scanjet 200 is not working

If your HP Scanjet 200 is not working, here are some troubleshooting steps you can take:
  1. Check the power supply: Make sure the scanner is properly connected to the power source and that the power cord is securely plugged in. If it's connected to a power strip or surge protector, try plugging it directly into a wall outlet.
  2. Check the USB connection: Make sure the USB cable is properly connected between the scanner and your computer. Try using a different USB cable or a different USB port on your computer.
  3. Check the scanner driver: Make sure the scanner driver is properly installed on your computer. You can download the latest driver from the HP website and reinstall it.
  4. Restart the scanner and computer: Turn off the scanner and your computer, then turn them back on and try scanning again.
  5. Clean the scanner glass: If the scanner glass is dirty, it can affect the quality of the scanned images. Clean the scanner glass with a soft, lint-free cloth and a non-abrasive glass cleaner.
  6. Check for error messages: If there are any error messages displayed on the scanner or on your computer, check the HP support website for more information on how to resolve them.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, it may be necessary to contact HP support or a professional technician for further assistance. They can help diagnose and fix the problem safely and effectively.

Trying to transfer pictures from Kodak c340 camera to computer-get message" Camera scanner wizard cannot detect camera"> Is problem with camera, usb cable, or camera/scanner wizard file?

Yes, the problem is with the camera, the USB cable, or the computer.

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 management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

    Downloading Videos

    If you have a USB cable that came with the camera, simply find the port on the camera that the small and of the cable will fit into, and the plug the other end of the cable into the USB port on the computer. Your computer should detect the camera on its own. Go to "My Computer" and click on the drive that matches the drive you pluged the USB cable into. Click on the appropriate files to find your pictures. Once you have found your pictures, press CTRL+A on the keyboard, right click any picture, click on "copy" or "cut" from the menu, then open your "Pictures" folder which should already be on your computer by defualt, right click in the "pictures" window once opened and click "paste" from the menu.

    A730 camera

    easiest way to download from the camera is to just take out the SD card and plug it into your SD card slot on your computer if your computer has the slots else buy a card reader to plug into your comp (they are really cheap these day just a couple of pounds) this is the way most people do it these days because even if you get a trouble free cable connection between camera and computer then install the required software etc etc it is too long winded for a very simple task
