Camera says "establishing connection" when trying to transfer

\015 Hello-I am trying to transfer pictures from my HP Photosmart M425 camera. I have done this many times before with no problem, but now the camera screen says "establishing connection" but never does. Can anyone help? Thank you so much!\015

Answers :

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

\012 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). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
\012
\012 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 management program such as Picasa.
