Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

Pins broken in the camera for connection lead to pc. Photos can be taken but not able to download to pc. Can this port be replaced?


Answers :

Yes, but probably expensive. I'd suggest getting a card reader, which is a far more versatile and easier to use option. It should only run about $30 US (maximum!). Any camera shop or electronics store should be able to advise as to which to get.
