Having problems with your GE E1040 Digital Camera ?


Answers :

Sometimes you get a connection failed error message, but the camera still connects. Easiest way is to go to My Computer and see if any Removable Drives show up. If so, click on each one of them and the right one will show a folder called DCIM. Double click that folder and the one inside that called GEDSC** and you should see your pictures and video clips

Doi not type in capitals - in forum speak that is shouting.
If you have the camera software loaded onto the computer un insytall it.
A Windows PC does not need it.
Now plug the camera in and windows wil put up the Scanner/Camera Wizard
Windows can do it all by its self it really can.
Consider also buying a USB card reader - much better.

When I connect my camera to my computer, it appears to be empty. I have over 1000 photos on it which show on the camera screen, but the computer sees none. I have even tried downloading the drivers and 'Nikon transfer' package from the disk that came with the box. I am using windows xp. Why does my computer not read the camera? When I open the S52 folder in my computer, there are no files. When I then press 'get pictures from camera' it says that the camera is in use. What am I doing wrong?!

First of all, why on earth would you keep 1000 pics on the memory card? They are not meant for storage....they can be easily corrupted and you could lose your pics. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. Then, format the card ... Nikon COOLPIX S52 Digital Camera

I have a GE 8.0 megapixel camera E840s. Have always been able to download pictures onto computer with no problems. Now after connecting to computer, my camera says "connecting" but doesn't do anything. Then I get a message about options and if I pick "import photos" it will then begin to import ALL photos which are already on the computer rather than the most current. We deleted many photos to make room, thinking this would help. What's my problem? Thanks.
