Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Memory i got this last chirstmas and i do not have a sd card. so i was wondering if i can plug in the usb to my computer and rec. while saveing it to my computer



Answers :

For most cameras, you can't do this. To transfer files via USB, you need to have the camera acting like an external hard drive. It can't be used as a camera in that case. (There are a few exceptions; they have a webcam software option.)

Please add a comment with your camera model to get a more specific answer. I wish that I had better news for you.
