Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I got this camera and it has been sitting for some time but I lost the disc. Can I still use it without the disc?

Answers :

Yes, you can use it without supporting disc, mostly digital cameras are plug and play device and Windows XP, Vista and 7 has inbuilt drivers to recognize it when it hooked with computer to transfer picture files.
Another way to transfer files is take out memory card and hook it through generic memory card reader to computer. Memory card readers are widely available in stores under $20 or so.
Hope this info will help you.
Let me know camera model and brand if you have additional question.

I have a OLyMPUS D-555 Zoom digital camera. I cannot download my pictures onto my computer because I have lost the two software discs that came with the camera. I have the Basic Manual (paper booklet) but without the software I cannot really use this camera as it is supposed to be used. Is there any way I could download this software online?

I haven't used my Nikon Coolpix E5700 for several years now. I have moved several houses, so something may have caused my camera to stop working. However, I've attempted to turn it on several times and all the monitor shows is a "Lens Error" sign. I've taken out the battery, recharged it, and replaced it yet it still doesn't make a difference. Is there any way I can fix it without bringing it to a shop?

My friend gave me his used camera when his wife bought him with a new camera for Christmas. Although she bought it with his money, he still liked it. I didn't see it yet but he said it had a lot more pixles than the used Vivitar he gave me. OK, it's a hand me down camera. At least it's a good brand.

I have a PowerShot Canon S3IS and have encountered a problem whereby I have lost the complete content of my 1 GBSD card.

Battery life My AA 3000mah batteries don't last 30 mins before the camera switches itself off, indicating that the batteries are flat. When tested on a multimeter they read 1.24volts. The manual say I should get 300 shots using 2500mah batteries. The batteries have been discharged and charged up many times but still the same problem. I'm using Nimh type batteries that read 1.35v full charge and 1.24v when the camera shuts off. Is this a common fault with this camera ?
