Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I can't seem to download my pictures now that I have up-graded to a new computer. It has Vista Windows operating system. Thanks.


Answers :

Buy an inexpensive card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop.
If your camera is not relatively new, and you're running Vista, that's your problem. Many camera vendors did not update needed drivers to work with Vista, particularly for older cameras. It was just not cost effective. Unfortunately, this can't be corrected.

\015\012But there exists a good, if not better alternative way to download your photos with Vista. Please see this blog article, as it describes the use of an inexpensive card reader as a much easier, faster, and less error prone way to download your photos. In fact there are several important reasons discussed in the article for using a card reader vice downloading from the camera. USB Card readers are also very inexpensive these day, with cost virtually not an issue.
