Trouble Connecting I went to upload my pictures onto my MacBook and the camera won't connect. It had been working fine before and I hadn't changed anything. I tried taking out batteries and memory card, switching USB ports, and making sure the camera was set on USB and not the disk setting. What else can I try?I feel like I had this problem before and maybe it had something to do with Rosetta on Macs...could that be it? But I don't know how/where/what to do for that.Thank you,Tia

My Nikon Coolpix LP16 is not detected by Windows on either my PC or my son's laptop, but IS detected by our Mac laptop. I've tried different ports, different cables, reinstalled software, reset the camera -- nothing works. Nikon's tech support was not helpful. My PC runs XP, my son's laptop runs Windows 7. The camera worked fine with both then suddenly stopped working. My device manager does not detect the camera at all.

Microsoft updates frequently make changes to the registry which cause our cameras to no longer be recognized. The simple solution is to start using a separate card reader. ... Nikon COOLPIX L18 Digital Camera

Yesterday I downloaded successfully, as usual, my pictures from the camera into the computer. I made 7 more pictures last night. Today, I tried to download them, but the computer had a "non recognizable files" message. I restarted the computer (a Mac OSX), but now it wouldn't even detect the camera!

Transferring photos I have had the camera for three months with no problem.  I have been trying now to download some short movies and they come up blank in quick time. I had no problem doing this with with my first camera.   Now I can't transfer regular still photos from the camera to my mac.  I don't think I have changed any settings, either on the camera or the mac and am quite frustrated. The operating manual has been no help.   Appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.

I have a Nikon D40 which is coming upto being two years old. Recently I have noticed that the auto-focus will not work. If I manually focus I can still take photos but when auto is engaged it will not even try to focus and therefore will not allow me to take a photo. I have not made any changes to the settings and therefore I am concerned it is a hardware fault. The lens in question is the standard lens supplied with the camera and is the only lens I have so have been unable to check t

I have a Polaroid t737. I plugged it into a Mac OS X to try and download pictures, and the drive never showed up. Therefore I unplugged it from the computer. Now when I push power, the LCD comes on for a few seconds, and then the camera shuts back down. The lens is fully closed and doesn't move, and banging the side doesn't help.

It is always a good idea to plug in these units before turning it on and turning it off before unplugging it. What can happen is something like this:When you plug in a live camera or anything else, you may get a voltage spike or some volt ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera

Olympus SP-550 UZ won't focus properly most of the time. Focus point should be infinity since my subjects are seascapes, sunsets and clouds.

Hi guys! I'm having trouble with my KODAK SDHC Memory Card 4GB. I've recorded some stuff in my camera, and I can see my recordings IN the camera, but whenever I try to transfer my videoclips to my PC, it won't detect the memory card. I've alreday tried connecting the camera directly to the computer, but still won't detect it. Whenever I use another memory card it seems to work perfectly fine. HELP!
