Having problems with your Praktica Digital Cameras ?

Have been given a Praktica SlimPix5200 camera. Have a Vista computer, unable to to connect. Keep getting unable to locate, even when using the disc provided.

Answers :

Well since you have a vista, you wont need to use its CD to get this connected to your PC; for picture transfer and all.
\015\0121.just plug it in
\015\0122.go to my computer
\015\0123.and you should be able to see another drive icon on your window that will look like a removable memory
\015\012but to make it easier for you to transfer files, you may want to get a USB card reader, so that the camera's memory card (SD) will just be plugged in to it and no need for the camera to be plugged to the PC, just a personal advice.
