Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Really sick of the I/O error process aborted everytime I want to down load pics please help..I've re- installed software 3 times!!!


Answers :

First of all, don't use any software that ships with cameras to transfer files to your computer. They are always unnecessary garbage.

Uninstall any crapware they shipped with their camera, if you can.

Second, to copy your pictures or movies from your coolpix to your computer, simply remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into your computer's card reader. If you computer doesn't have a crad reader, then I recommend you buy one.

You can use the USB cable that shipped with your camera to do the same thing as putting the memory card in a card reader, but there are two reasons I don't recommend it: 1) you will wear out the connector on your camera and eventually it will fail, 2) it is just another complication to what is a straightforward task (some cameras require a switch or a mode to be selected in order to get the camera ready to act as a usb card reader, and there's no consistency between camera brands or models.)

Now that the card is in the reader, or the camera is in USB mode and connected to your computer, the Windows explorer will show your memory card as a "Removable Storage Drive". Simply copy and paste or drag and drop the pictures you want from the removable storage drive folder to wherever you want to store them on your computer. This method is easier and faster than proprietary software.

I hope that helps.

Hello, I recently purchased the Canon powershot sd1400. I connected the camara to my computer for the first time to download my pictures and it worked.

I attempted to open the camara window but I keep getting the error message that reads "can not detect camara. please check connection and try again."

Just tried to hook up my camera to my computer and the computer is not recognizing the camera for some reason. Is it possible that the USB cable is bad.

We just downloaded norton antivirus 2009 to our computer and this is the first time we have tried since doing that. I think the USB cable is bad but it's pretty new.

Lens Error I recently had a problem with my Casio QV-R4... every time I'd turn it on, the lens would retract and I'd get a "LENS ERROR" message on the screen. I talked to customer support and they told me that Installing the new version of their firmware, v1.01 would fix this problem. I've since installed the new firmware version, but I am still receiving the lens error. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? Please help!!!


As solutions 1 & 2 indicate, lubing the gears works!! This is a great camera, so I hope all of the QV-R4 owners try this. I may become a maintenance item for the camera.\015\012 \015\012I have a few a ... Casio QV-R4 Digital Camera
