DOWNLOADING PHOTOS Lost my lead and ordered one off internet...charged camera but did not download photos, same with replacement lead. Tried different cameras and memory cards but always error trying to download 1st photo saying something wrong with device attached to pc


Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

When my memory card ran out of space on my Olympus Digital E 500, I put in a new card. A "card error" message appeared on the screen. This has never happened before. Now neither card works and when I try to download the photos it asks me if I want to format the card. I assume that if I say "yes" and do format it, that it will erase all my photos. Is that correct? So, I am wondering if I could bring my card over to you and have you download it on to a thumb drive so that I can save the photos on
