Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

It takes pictures just fine but when I plug it into the computer & go into the removable disk file there is nothing there.


Answers :

Another story of camera software not working right. It's much faster, and less frustrating to get a usb card reader. It's just a dumb computer. It only knows what you train it to do. The camera's software may not be fully installed, or corrupted. But with a usb card reader(5 bucks and up) there is no software to worry about and the computer sees it as just another drive.

My son got a vivitar vs18b camera. The packaging says Mac compatible but when we put the image zone disk in nothing happens. I've tried clicking on the 2 files after opening the disk icon and nothing happens. I tried the Vivitar Website and found no solutions. One spot had to download the "experience software". I got a link to a blank page. Any ideas how to get the pictures from the camera to our Mac?


Try to get your money back for the camera. If not, go buy your son a better camera. Vivitar has no drivers for anything. Only what comes with the camera (WinXP only). Plus the viewfinder is junk, and the camera loses all store pictures when the b ... Digital Cameras

I just bought the olympus X-42 and it took pictures fine. Then I uploaded them onto my computer. After that I wanted to take more pictures and now it says, "Write Protected" I looked at the instructions on how to remove it, it says, "Use a computer to cancel the read-only setting." I don't know where that is.


This is almost always a setting with the "write protect" or "lock / unlock" tab on the SD or SDHC memory card itself - and is easily remedied. Remove the memory card from the camera if it isn't already, and look along the left edge of the card. Find ... Digital Cameras

Downloading problem I bought a Nikon D80 in November of 2007 and it has been operating fine since. However today I tried to download some pictures onto my computer using Photoshop Elements 4.0. About half the pictures downloaded properly and the other half did not. A dialogue box indicated that the file may be damaged or in a form that cannot be supported by the organizer. I thought that the card might have gone bad so I put it in another camera and it worked fine. I then put a different c

We continue to have problems once a picture is taken we get file errors or the picture is half merged with another picture. Also, the picture looks fine in the camera, but when we download to the computer it is merged with another picture that was not even loaded on the camera at the same time. We thought we might need to be more agressive in pusing down the shutter button, but this problem is really puzzeling us and causing aggravation. Can you help?

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and 'Nikon transfer' package from the disk that came with the box. I am using windows xp. Why does my computer not read the camera? When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!


First of all, why on earth would you keep 1000 pics on the memory card? They are not meant for storage....they can be easily corrupted and you could lose your pics. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. Then, format the card ... Nikon COOLPIX S52 Digital Camera
