Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I bought a digital camera from Ebay. I have NEVER done this before and have no idea how to send my pictures to the computer. I used the camera but want to copy them to computer so I can send to friends via email. I have a HP photosmart E 317 and a card in the camera, I bought a cord connecting to computer. When plugged in to computer nothing happens. I know I am dumb but I am 53 yrs age and learning a new skill. Thank you for any assistance you can give. Oh I also do not have a manual.


Answers :

Okay first here is a link and it's a biggy for a PDF manual

http://www.google.ca/webhp?hl=en#hl=en&source=hp&biw=1383&bih=834&q=HP+photosmart+E+317+PDF+Manual&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=&gs_rfai=&fp=6a0673dc5c3f3912

Copy and past into your browser window and it's pop up on the screen you can enlarge it so you can read it. Keep this manual you are going to need it.

Now you have been bit by the e-Bay bug chuckle there will be no end to it now.
Open the manual and read set up, you will need to set the date and time.
The camera uses SD cards don't go overboard on the size most of these older pocket point and shooters haven't got the capacity for the new cards.
See on page 15 it's showing a memory card there is a lock on that card make sure it's unlocked, I'll include a better picture of it for you. Also the card will need to be formatted the directions, skimpy as they are tells you the sequence of this process.

Now something else to same you a whole lot of frustration and hurt go out and buy a card reader that way the camera is right out of the download process and you shouldn't need the software that was suppose to come with a digital camera The card reader just plugs into a USB port and the memory card plugs into it the computer looks at it as an external mass storage device (Hard Drive) the files can be loaded to a new folder in "My Documents" if you are "PC" I generally just use the year month and date as a file number. The files from the card then can be loaded to the new folder and you can then open and use them with a picture program. Some of these programs alread come with your computer depending on what operating system you have. If you are "PC" Windows XP home edition or grater will have some type of picture program possible "Paint" you can open and view the picture. Back to the download thing once the pictures are on the computer Hard Drive you need to safely disconnect the device DON'T just unplug the memory card it won't like you one bit. you need to shut it off eject or something (it's been a while since I was on a "PC".) Okay we have safely ejected the memory card now remove it from the card reader and place it back in the camera then power up the camera and format that card again Every time you download pictures and the card goes back in the camera format the card save yourself a ton of hurt later on. Now you also mentioned e-mailing pictures which will have a lot to do with the picture file size You will need to adjust this and it can be done in the camera I believe you need to look at picture quality for this . However I prefer to shoot the largest file I can and make a copy of any pictures I want to sent out VIA\015\012 e-mail and then reduce the files size that way you always have the BIG \015\012file in cause you want to print it. Geez hope I haven't burred you in \015\012all this
\015\012Diagram of card Oh, By the Way I got 10 years on ya so 53 is still young ;-)
