Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I am trying to download pics from cam to comp.


Answers :

Without a specific model, only general help can be provided. Usually, you can transfer pictures with a camera supplied cable. Many times they are simple USB cables with one of several standard ends or proprietary end for the camera.

Software supplied with the camera should be started and then the camera connected. You may need to connect the camera first. Depending on your computer, if software has been installed already for the camera, it may automatically detect the camera. There are many variables involved, so without the camera model, it is difficult to answer definitively.

If you don't have the software, cable, etc., and your camera saves images to a removable card - it may be a lot easier to buy a memory card reader for under $25. When the reader is plugged in to a USB port on the computer and a memory card inserted, the card looks like any another drive. It is assigned a letter like D, E, F etc. and you work with it just like if it were any other hard drive. You needn't have the camera connected, good batteries, etc. and it generally transfers your pictures significantly faster, too.

If you want to get your camera working as designed - make sure you have the software installed and the cable for the camera; and create a new fixya request. Be sure to include the camera manufacturer's name model.

I have had this camera for several years now but only recently put a mem card in it. It just keeps telling me to check card.

Just purchased Nikon S570 less than a week ago. After taking 10 or so pics today while out on a hike, the camera locked up saying it could not read the card. It would not allow me to take anymore pics. It would not allow downloading of pics off the card either as it locked up my computer when I tried to download the pics. Also, the camera has locked up while I was trying to set menu options several times over the last couple of days. I have simply turned it off and then back on again to get it w
