Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

How do I import photos from my camera?


\015 Cant import photos to my computer\015

Answers :

There are two ways to import your photos.
One, your camera should have an sd card which you can eject and put into your computer. The sd card should have all your photos and videos in it. Typically the card is located near the battery and you can press down on it and it should pop out. You may also need a sd card reader or micro sd card reader if it doesn't fit in your computer.
Second, your camera should also have a usb port, whether micro or mini or whatever. It should have a port to connect to your computer through a usb cable. In this case, just connect your camera to your computer and it should show up on your computer like an extra drive where you can go in and see all your photos.
Also, the folder that holds everything is usually labed DCIM i believe.
Hope this helps.

I have a GE 8.0 megapixel camera E840s. Have always been able to download pictures onto computer with no problems. Now after connecting to computer, my camera says "connecting" but doesn't do anything. Then I get a message about options and if I pick "import photos" it will then begin to import ALL photos which are already on the computer rather than the most current. We deleted many photos to make room, thinking this would help. What's my problem? Thanks.


Your problem stems from the changes Windows makes to the registry every time it downloads updates. Pros avoid this very common problem by using a separate card reader...you should too.\012 ... Digital Cameras

Importing Images Hi, When we take photos on our 500D we can preview the photos on the screen. When we place our Camera card into the computer and try to import the file they say that it is not a supported mode. Displaying the image number for example as IMG_0135.CR2 usually they will display CRW_0135. Is there a solution ?


The CR2 suffix means that the picture was taken in the RAW file format, a proprietary format. This requires that the images be processed by a software conversion to be 'readable' by the computer.
