You can show off your camera pictures by using the LCD monitor or by connecting your camera to a television. There are also many photo processing centers that can make traditional photo prints directly from your camera’s media card. However, to realize the full capabilities of your digital camera, a computer is recommended.

It is not only the card and computer or camera and computer that is needed. To interface anything to a computer you need a program. Most of the time called a driver. When you put a card reader to the computer, or when there is a card reader in the computer you need a driver that came with the card reader or the computer. To read from a camera, you need a driver that came with the camera. More and more, the interfacing of cameras becomes standard, so if you ever installed a camera driver it could be other cameras can communicate with your computer. But no guaranty it always work.
With the correct driver, your camera acts like an external memory to the computer and the computer can read the pictures on the memory card in the camera.
So if you use a card reader or a camera on the computer always meme sure you have installed the correct software that came with the apparatus.


see the steps : God bless you
If the camera won't connect with your computer, make sure you have the latest version of the needed software drivers (in your digital camera package or online from the manufacturer). Check your computer for conflicts (two devices trying to use the same port); you may need technical assistance for this one. In some cases you can get things working again by connecting the digital camera, then turning off the computer and turning it back on.

Need a driver for my Sanyo VPC-S500 digital camera. Unable to locate disk with the driver on it.

You may not need a driver for this camera. I assume you are using a computer with Windows installed.

  1. Go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
  2. Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
  3. Select USB
  4. Select PC

Your camera is now ready to use with your computer.

Now plug your camera into your computer and check under My Computer for the drive to show.

You should be able to double click on the icon to open the files on your camera and copy them to your computer.

I can't download pictures to my computer

How do I transfer pictures on my digital camera to my computer?

AFTER INSTALLING THE SOFTWARE FIRST, WITHOUT THE CAMERA BEING CONNECTED TO THE COMPUTER, DOTHE FOLLOWING: 1. Turn on the Camera, and change it o "Playback" mode. 2. Connect the camera with computer using USB port. 3. The LCD display of the camera turns off automatically, and the computer said " that a new hardware attached would be detected". 4. Go to "My Computer", and you can find a new drive saying "Removable disk". Double click it and you can find your pictures and videos inside the folder. Just copy them to your computer's hard disk. This procedure is slightly different for each digital camera model. You will need to refer to your instruction manual (Included on the CD-Rom that came with your camera) for exact instructions on how to properly install your camera and download your pictures. The main thing is to first install all of the software on the included CD-Rom disc to your computer BEFORE CONNECTING THE DIGITAL CAMERA TO THE COMPUTER. If you do not do this, Windows will put in its own driver and it is virtually impossible on some computers to get this driver out of Windows and install the proper one. However, if you do find yourself in this position. You can TRY the following. First unhook the camera from the computer, go to: Start / Control Panel / Add/Remove Programs. Next, look for all of the DIGITAL CAMERA software listed under the "Installed Software List" and uninstall that software. This is the same software you HAD installed after hooking up the camera to the computer. Once you have uninstalled ALL OF THE CAMERA software, reboot the computer, then re-install the software WITHOUT the camera connected to the computer. If this works, great! if not it is because Windows refuses to accept the new digital camera driver or Mass Media Driver needed and short of reinstalling the Windows software there is very little you can to do to make it work other than by purchasing a different model digital camera and installing the software FIRST before attaching the camera to the computer. If you think this is just a Cobra Digital problem, do a search on the internet. It occurs with almost all brands of digital cameras on the market, usually the ones that use proprietary drivers instead of mass media drivers.


go to the link below for the driver, you dont need software as you can explore the camera in my computer and copy then paste the photos, but windows may come up with picture viewer when you connect the cam up to the pc


What are the computer requirements for my camera?

With some specific exceptions, PENTAX digital camera products are compatible with Windows 98 or later and MacOS 8.6 or later. If you use an operating system that is incompatible with your PENTAX digital camera, you may still be able to download your pictures. Since most of our digital products use a memory card such as Compactflash™, Secure Digital™, etc., you can obtain a reader (sold separately) for your memory card. Then, instead of connecting the camera to the computer, you can eject your memory card from the camera an insert it directly into your card reader. You simply will need to shop around for a card reader that is compatible with the operating system you use. Some computers have the capability of automatically recognizing PENTAX digital cameras, and some do not. Depending on what type of computer you have and the OS you work with, you may need to download the appropriate driver from the CD-ROM that accompanied your camera or download from the PENTAX web site. Driver firmware updates, and other information can be downloaded in our technical updates section. 5. How do I connect my PENTAX digital camera to my computer? PENTAX has prepared several special on-line "Getting Started" sections for each of its individual digital products. This information is available in our Learning Studio and they contain step-by-step instructions (complete with examples and visuals) to assist you in getting your digital camera up and running with your computer. Here you will learn the following: How do I install the drivers on my computer? How do I properly connect my camera to the computer? How do I install the other software programs that were included on the CD-ROM that came with my camera? How do I uninstall the drivers from my computer?
