Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

The camera is not recognised by the pc via a usb lead - although it normally is :(


Answers :

With XP you should be able to simply open up the "My Computer" icon on your desktop.
\015\012Under "My Computer" you should see a "Removable Disk".
\015\012Double Click on it, and then your should see "DCIM", double click on that and then you will see "100PENTX".
\015\012Double click on "100PENTX" and you will see all your pictures.
\015\012You can then copy those pictures to anywhere on your computer.
\015\012
\015\012If this does not work for you, you can always use a card reader to\015\012download your pictures. Many later model computers have built-in SD\015\012card readers. If your computer does not have a slot for an SD card you\015\012can purchase a card reader, usually for under $20, at most major\015\012computer/electronics equipment retailers.
