I have a Polaroid i533, when I plug the USB cord into my computer, connect it to the camera, turn the camera on, no mass storage device is showing. Windows XP supposed to be plug and play. I bought a card reader, and when I plug that into my USB port, and insert the 2.0 GB SD card, it shows drive F on MY COMPUTER, but says there is nothing on it, insert a disk into drive F. What the heck? How do I get this card reader to work? Thanks!

I have a Samsung Digital Camera (ES57). The lead to which it connects for charging/downloading photos doesn't appear to be working. When plugged in, the arrow at the top of the lead just lights up red 9shouldn't it be green?). When plugged into PC, it states "connecting to USB" and gets no further than that. Is this likely to be a problem with the lead or the camera?

Battery Charge My DSC-T1 battery does not seem to charge, when I plug it in, the yellow charge light comes on for awhile, than goes out. If I drop down the cover to turn it on, it comes on, and the battery shows not even half charged. When I close the cover again, the yellow light comes on for awhile, than goes out again like its not charging. Any suggestions? Thanks

Get another battery and try charging it. You should have a second, backup battery anyway. That should narrow it down between the charger and the battery as to which is defective. How old is the camera? It may be a better investment to put the money i ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

Focus Problem Dear folks, I just bought a (new) Canon A75, and it doesn't seem to focus. At all. Even on manual focus, not only can I not get it to focus properly, the focus doesn't change at all. When on AF, it doesn't beep like the manual says it should, and the yellow light blinks, as it's supposed to when there's a focus issue. The focus assist light is working. Can anybody think of anything I should try? The manual is of no help. This is my first digital camera, so I'm not ruling out the po
