Having problems with your Kodak Easyshare C813 Digital Camera ?

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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I am having problems with my USB connection between my camera, a Fuji FinePix E550 & my laptop. It has worked beautifully up until a few months ago, then occasionally I'd get a message that the device was not recognized....if I turned the camera off & on a few times, the computer would open it. Today, I've been trying all day to download some pics, have turned the camera on & off, tried the USB cable in all 4 USB ports on the laptop and it won't open it at all.

My camera says 'Connecting to PC' all the time when I turn it on even if it is not connected to PC. I think it has got confused as the last time I used the camera was to take photos off it and it may have run out of charge while connected to the PC. I cannot use the camera as it always has this 'Connecting to PC' message on it.

I took several pictures this morning. Then I plugged the camera into the cradle and pressed USB port and connected the line from the cradle to the computer, an operation I have completed numerous times. This time nothing happened. No "import" showed up. I looked at help in iPhoto. It said to turn on the camera. I tried, but it would not turn on. I took it off the cradle and tried many times. No luck. Have I somehow accidentally locked the camera? Does it even have a lock feature?

My Dell laptop running Vista will not recognize my camera (Samsung BL103). The USB port works fine for other things, just not when connected to the camera.

Photos delete if i turn the camera off . I turn it on, and it says "26" on the screen, meaning i can take 26 pics. i'll take maybe 4 and turn it off. If i turn it on again, it will read "26" again and sure enough, when i connect it to the pc no pictures are detected. The only time i can upload pics from the camera is if I take the pics and connect it to the pc asap without turning it off.

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer telling me the computer cannot detect the camera. Battery is freshly charged, and I get the little yellow bird picture on the camera when I turn it on. It beeps about 4 times, and then turns off. Is there a safe way to get the lens to retract?

Relatively new canon eos 60d. Was taking multiple pictures in a group setting. Received an error that the lens and the camera were not connected well (I receive this from time to time, need to buy a newer lens). Usually, I just turn the camera off and then back on and it works fine. This time, the view through the viewfinder is very dark and it will take no pictures of any kind. Tried everything I know- no luck.

The battery shows full and the camera works perfectly, then with no indication why the camera will not turn on. When left and then turned on later it sometimes works again, without the battery being charged in the meantime and with it again showing full.
