Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Ok well there is quite a large number of things this could be.Try going into your "Computer/My Computer" folder and clicking on a drive named "Removable disk" if you have one. If there is no removable disk drives that contain your pictures then try these things.

First thing could be that your camera isn't on. Try following instruction that came with the camera to see what you do when you plug it in. Many cameras have specific buttons that need to be pressed when plugged in.

Number 2 would be that your camera is not compatible with your OS. I am both a windows and mac user myself, and I know that depending on what you are running, certain cameras may not work on windows or mac. Check your camera's user guide to see what is supported, and check your computer to see if you have a supported OS.

On windows go to Start>(Right Click) Computer/My Computer> Properties- and A window should come up displaying info. about your computer. At the top it should say what OS you are running.

On mac go to (Apple logo)> About this Mac- A window will pop up displaying your OS in bold letters and the Model of that OS right under it. The OS I am running right now is Mac OS X 10.6.4 for example.

The third thing that comes to mind is drivers. Most cameras come equipped to automatically install the required drivers when plugged in, but yours may not be doing that. If the camera came with any install discs, insert them and try to install the drivers. If it didn't do some googling to try and find some drivers for your particular OS.

The fourth thing is that the drive your camera is being recognized on needs remapped. Do some googling to figure out how to change a drive location in windows. What this means is that your camera is set to be recognized on drive X: for example. Well your computer isn't set up to read drive X: it's only set up to read A:, B:, C:, and D:. You need to change the camera's drive to be drive D: or something instead of X:. This way the computer will read it.

The final thing could always be a defective cable. If this is the case, try a different cable.

There are still multiple other things, but try these first.
