Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Hi how do i upload pictures from my samsung D1070 camera onto my laptop, it used to come up on the screen when i set up usb connection, with prompts now it doesnt, any ideas please


Answers :

Using a USB lead, you shouldn't need a driver or other software. The computer can recognise the camera memory as a removable drive without actually recognising the camera as a camera. Try looking in "My Computer" for an extra drive (Under "Devices with Removable Storage") and opening that. There should be directories with picture files in them that you can drag to your desktop. If you can't find this, perhaps there is an issue with the cable connection.

Many people find it more convenient to just take the memory card out of the computer and put it in a card reader, especially now that these readers are built into computers and printers. You can't get the pics from the camera's internal memory that way though.

I can't get the photos in my Pentax OptioS6 to download into my computer. When I try, the computer says that it does not recognize what kind of camera it is connected to. By the way, I checked the trouble shooting guide & thought that the problem may be that the USB connection setting might have been set to PictBridge instead of PC -- but no, it is set correctly. Any ideas? I'd love to download these photos.

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently. I connected the camera to my computer and downloaded some photos just like I always do with no problems - disconnecting it as I always do (USB). The next time I went to use the camera, the USB storage screen shows up and I can't get it to go back to the original setting to take photos. I can still download any images from the camera but can't get off that menu. I've tried the reset

The CF card in the wife's S9500 has ceased to be read via the USB cable in both Windows XP and Linux (both systems saw the camera before as an external drive). I cannot think of anything I have done to cause this. The card has integrity and we managed to get the 400+ photos off onto CD's via a PC in the local photo shop. I have re-formated the card and tried every setting I can find on the camera but..... no connection via USB seen.... can anyone help here please? Thanks - Peter


Since the card seems to be working (you can take pictures and view them on the screen afterwards) the problem must be with the USB. I assume Linux and XP is on 2 different computers? If, not, it could also an electrical error with the USB ports. ... Fuji FinePix S9500 Zoom Digital Camera

When I turn the camera on I get the message "memory card error". The only button on the camera which then works is the menu button but it just brings up the screen and then the same error message.
