Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A630 Digital Camera ?

When trying to upload pictures/videos onto the laptop, nothing is detected. I've put pictures from this camera onto this laptop before, but now nothing is autostarting. I've tried going into 'My Computer', but still, nothing is detected. I'm not sure whether it's a problem with the camera or the laptop. I have Windows Vista. Please help!

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.

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.

We have a Kodak 8.2 mega pixel camera that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. I took pictures and then uploaded them onto my computer. Unplugged everything. When I went back to delete the pictures off the camera card, the camera would not turn on or do anything. I tried to charge the battery but when everything is plugged in it is still totally dark. We purchased a new battery thinking that was the problem and still nothing. When the charger in plugged in there is nothing - no lights at all.
