Having problems with your HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera ?

Trouble Connecting I went to upload my pictures onto my MacBook and the camera won't connect. It had been working fine before and I hadn't changed anything. I tried taking out batteries and memory card, switching USB ports, and making sure the camera was set on USB and not the disk setting. What else can I try?I feel like I had this problem before and maybe it had something to do with Rosetta on Macs...could that be it? But I don't know how/where/what to do for that.Thank you,Tia


Answers :

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


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 iPhoto or any other photo cataloging program.

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently.

I brought a Canon IXY to Abu Dhabi. I bought it in Japan so can't read the settings. I can't remember how to upload pictures to my laptop from it. I thought something came out of the side that was shaped like USB and would go into USB port but I find no such thing on the camera. Is there another piece I forgot to bring? Thanks!

Close-up picture Hi! I purchased my camera to take up close-up pictures of handmade greeting cards. The cards are 4" x 5 1/2" with lots of little details. I'd like to show as much detail as possble.
