Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Camera Problems!!! My computer won't detect my camera!

\015 I received a new camera for an early Christmas present and installed its software (the driver and media gallery it came with) and when I plugged it into my computer via a USB cable the computer simply did not detect that it had been plugged in. I searched for the device but the computer did not pick it up. However, when I accidentally pressed 'PC Cam' it worked perfectly well as a web cam. Can you help? Thanks\015

Answers :

The first suggestion may sound silly - but, check if the computer has a usb2.0 port. and on the camera box, minimum system requirements should be posted - comfirm that your computer meets those minimums.

\015\012try uninstalling using 'add/remove programs' in your control panel, and reinstall the program that came with the camera. Then restart the computer

Hi I have a Canon A460 which has worked fine. My problem is with the transfer of images to the computer. I get either a message saying camera not found or I get a message saying camera detected with a box underneath where I would expect to see zoombrowser or another software to launch the action. The box is empty so I can't select anything. This has only just happened recently. Probably around the time I installed a Canon MP270 printer/scanner (which is a pig to use). Thanks Pat
