Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Samsung Kenox S800, but cannot view video on Vista Home Premium. I have installed the original disc, but seems there is a codec problem. It works fine on XP, but I'm phasing out that computer.


Answers :

Personally I'd keep the XP and phase out the Vista.
\015\012Vista had serious issues with many programs not adapted for it.
With Windows 7 they usually work though, and with some systems you can choose to run the software in XP mode. If it cant do that on your Vista it may be worth considering upgrading to W7 - some small PC shops help with that if you aren't sure how to.

Hi I have a Canon PowerShot 460 Digital Camera and it works great when I want to take pictures or make movies. The problem is that when I try to connect it to my computer to retrieve the pictures on the camera, my computer says that my camera isn't detected. I don't understand why that is because the camera's software works fine. I thought it was a problem with the USB cord, but it works fine with other electronic devices. The USB doesn't seem to work with the camera. I don't get whats the iss

Hi, I seem to have a problem with my Finepix Z1 digital camera. When I take a shot it seems to work ok, and the initial review image seems fine as well. But when I go back and review the image on the camera, or off the memory card via my computer the image is distorted. The best way I can describe it is as if the image appears that I took a photo off something on the tv, with a series of horizontal lines running across the image. The video capture seems to work fine though. Can you offer any sug

I seem to be having problems connecting my Fujifilm Finepix J210 with my computer. When the hardware wizard auto intalls the drivers it shows a message that there may be problems using the hardware. We have tried updating/changing the driver which makes no difference and we know that there is no issue with the camera as it works on another computer. We have also tried other cameras/memory cards on THIS computer and they work fine.

My Canon SD 870 Camera came with a free SD card. Everything seems fine with the card until I try to download the pictures to my computer. I used the camera to format the card after the first time I had problems. I assumed this would fix it but it has happened again. I don't have problems with my other memory cards, just the one this camera came with. I can view the most recent pictures using the camera but how do I transfer the pictures to my computer? Thanks.


How are you transferring pictures with the other cards? Are you using a\015\012USB cable and plugging the camera into the PC? If not, how are you\015\012doing it. Let me know the answer... I have some suggestions for you.\015\012Regards,\ ... Canon Digital Cameras

Can't see the camera from the computer. Everything works fine on the camera, but the USB connection doesn't work. It's like the usb driver chip failed.Put it on a linux machine, and can't see it from there either. I have reloaded the drivers several times. And it used to work on this computer. Other types of cameras work correctly with the same cable so it doesn't seem to be a cable problem. Does anybody fix these cameras?

No Sound I just got a new computer so I can burn home movies from my Samsung S630 to DVD. The computer recognizes the video, but not the sound. My camera works fine and the sound on the computer works fine except for when I try to play my videos. I've heard that I need codecs but don't know what type and where to get it. I don't have internet at home, so I'd need to burn the codec package to a CD and transfer it to my computer. Do you know what I need?


Youll need to get your camera to a broadband equipped PC and then try the shot videos. Windows media player will automatically download the codecs needed, but I dont know how to get those to your PC. ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

My D70 (which I just bought on ebay) is having problems with AF. At time the AF works fine but then for no reason it refuses to work for hours to days. I have two bodies so I can swap lenses to see that its not the lens. If I switch to manual focus, it the camera works fine. I can see the little pins around the lens fitting retract when I switch the camera to manual. Seems like a problem with the internals that control AF. No other problems are apparent to me. Any suggestions?

Hello, I have recently purchased an Olympus Digital Camera u-5010 and the photos I have taken all seem to be out of focus. Also there was no CD enclosed for the software and my camera refuses to talk to my computer. I went back to Myer where I purchased the camera and they suggested I download driver software.

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing.
