Having problems with your HP Photosmart M415 Digital Camera ?

Digital camera that will no longer connect to the computer.

\015 I use Picasa. I have been able to connect my HP photosmart M415 camera to the computer by cable. It would connect and Import the photos to Picasa. Lately it would say that it was "establishing connection" but then the camera would turn off. I could put the chip in my 4-n-1 and transfer the photos to the computer. Today I could get it to show the pictures but it would not import them. I enjoy the camera and being able to save pictures in an organized way but this is getting frustrating and I am not a tech person at all. Thanks for any advice. I just learned about this service from AARP and think it is wonderful!!\015

Answers :

I don't know about your "picasa" software, and the importing procedure, but you could simply plug your card into the SD slot on your PC, and it will show up as a 'removable drive' located in "my Computer". You can open it and simply copy/paste the photos directly to any folder you wish. In other words, you don't need any specific software to import photos, and to me it's a much simpler process.
If you don't have a card reader on your PC, you can buy a USB to SD adapter to plug into your USB port for $15 +/-
