Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Getting Pictures Off My Camera and Onto My Computer

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012A couple weeks ago I got a new digital camera, a Nikon Coolpix P80. I tested it out taking pictures and transfering them to my computer, and everything worked fine. However, this last weekend I took a bunch of pictures and when i tried to get them onto my laptop I couldn't do it. The prompt that comes up asking which program I would like use to retrieve the pictures shows up but no longer provides any of the options. My desktop does recognize that i have a camera connected to my computer, but when i try to retrieve the photos that way, i get a message saying something about making sure the camera is properly connected and is turned on. I tried another photo program and i got a stranger message--\015\012\015\012\342\200\234Unable to activate the TWAIN source. Make sure the selected source hardware and software are properly installed.\342\200\235\015\012\015\012But what's even stranger is that when I removed the memory card from my computer and took a few pics using only the camera's memory and tried transfering them onto my computer, everything went fine, no problems at all.\015\012\015\012So is there anything I can do to fix this problem?\015

Answers :

It sound like you have a problem with your memory card.
\015\012But I would try buying a card reader as well. Whether it turns out to be the card or not.
\015\012there are alot things that can go wrong when trying to use your camera to transfer the images instead of a card reader. a card reader shouldn't cost you more than 20 dollars.
\015\012It will also make transferring your images faster.
\015\012in the camera when you hit the review button do the images show up on the lcd screen of the camera?
\015\012Hope that works,
