Having problems with your Polaroid PhotoMax PDC 700 Digital Camera ?

"Connection failed." -- Serial connection


\015 My PhotoMAX software gives a "Connection failed" error message when I try to download images from my digital camera to my computer using a serial port connection.\015

Answers :

The "Connection failed" error message indicates a communications problem in the serial port connection between the camera and the computer. Simply put, the computer cannot find the camera it is being asked to connect with.\015\012\015\012Whenever an external device (digital camera, scanner, Palm Pilot, etc.) is connected to a computer through its serial port, a communications error is possible. There is usually no single "most likely" reason for the conflict -- it could be a hardware issue as easily as it could be a software issue.

Connection Error I'm having a hard time connecting my A730 Digital Camera to my PC. I tried the arcsoft installer as well as installing the is730 enu (an OS camera driver for Windows 98, 2000, and XP) and yet the camera is not being recognized by the PC. I also followed the instructions posted in the GE support website (including the FAQs and technical support advisory) and yet it still fails the connection. Please help... Thank you.

The camera (option m*5 pentax) got wet (on Songkran in Thailand). Now it works again except that it seems not to be able to load the battery. If I connect the battery charger while the camea is 'off'', the blue lights come one and after a few seconds go off again. If I connect the loader with camera 'on', it says: 'processing' and then 'connecting fail!"
