Having problems with your Panasonic DMC-TZ4 Digital Camera ?

USB upload error from Panasonic DMC-TZ4 to my laptop (Thinkpad T)

\015 When I connect my DMC-TZ4 to my laptop via USB cable (as has been done many times before) I get a message saying a new USB device has been found and am asked to insert the CD to install the software. The software is of course already installed. I reinstall it, then at the end get an error message saying "Error during installation of device. The data is invalid". Now what??\015

Answers :

Are you trying to copy your photos off the camera, or use it as a webcam?
If you are trying to copy photos, then make sure the camera is in the correct mode, eg: playback mode. if the problem still occurs then try a different USB socket on the computer. If that doesn't work then possibly the USB socket on the camera is damaged (this is a common fault). I would suggest getting a SD card reader that stays connected to your computer full time, take the SD card out of the camera and plug it into the SD reader. That is a more reliable solution.
