After about 250 photo's some began to have lines, striations like finger prints once the images were transferred to the computer or taken to a Kiosk for development. They look

Although my memory card is 75% full, my screen reads "there are no files"...I am able to display the files on a computer however. When new pix are taken they are stored and can be displayed. I've tried sending new files over to this card via computer and/or other memory cards to to no avail. What seems to be the problem and can it be solved. Thanks

I have a casio excilum ex-z100. Recently I downloaded all the photos I had taken on my 4gb SD card to my computer. I now want to transfer the same photos back to the sd card and continue using it in my camera. The problem is that while the photos are now successfully installed on my sd card again (Ican open and view the card contents on my computer) when I put the card back into the camera and try to view them there it says no files are available?

I tried to ring Vivitar's Leciester number and it said the number was not recognised. . My problem is that I had installed the driver for a vivitar 7100S for the last 2 years on my computer, and it worked nicely. But then I needed to reinstal the driver after an overhaul, and when I tried to get into the computer after the install, the computer threw me into the DOS screen, and windows wouldn't load. Any reason why? or solution? Brian Winder

Camera: Nikon Coolpix E4600 Have tried to transfer images from my Coolpix camera to my computer. Once connected to USB cord, the camera is recognized by the computer except the file transfering programs (Nikon Transfer and PictureProject) don't recognize any files to transfer. Is it a problem with the cord itself? I've put the memory card which has the pictures into my laptop and transfered them successfully that way, which is why it leads me to believe the cord is the issue.

My camera samsung wb500 cannot be recognized by a computer. When plug it in to the computer via usb cord it is recognized by the pc. The light on the camera flickers but nothing happens.

GoPro Hero camera. I get a "buzzing" sound on the videos recorded from inside my car. It seems there's some interference with the car electronics, so I've been told (and videos taken with the engine off don't suffer this problem). I've tried to "insulate" the camerea with cooking aluminium sheet, but: 1) I can't cover it entirely, because lens, display and operating buttons must be kept obviously clear; 2) It doesn' solve the problem. Is there any way to solve this problem? Thanks!


The source of the interference is usually the radio signals, so did you try turning off your car radio/music player to see if the problem persists. There are currently no covers that can solve the interference. Your only hope is to suppress the sourc ... GoPro Digital Hero 3 Digital Camera
