Having problems with your Rollei X 8 Sports Digital Camera ?

Rollei X-8 sports can't download files via USB cable

\015 I have a new Rollei X-8 sports and it says to connect the USB cable to a PC in order to download pictures from the camera. However, when I open the waterproof cover to access the mini USB port on the camera this powers the camera down.. The manual doesn't mention anything about this. What am I doing wrong?\015

Answers :

It is not actually shutting down. It just goes to standby mode. You need to look on the computer and then check if it is going to the USB detection process. It may take a moment as it loads the appropriate drivers. Once you see the USB icon on the Windows tray, go to My Computer and then locate your camera.
Mine does the exact same thing. So annoying When you open the cover the batteries pop out so of course it powers down, but then when the USB cable is attached and connected to the computer, it never pops up as a memory drive. It happened once but since then has been impossible. I sent it back.

I have a Casio EZ-Z1050 10.1 megapixel digital camera and am very pleased with it. I use a 2Gb memory chip with it, however, some snaps have gotten into the cameras on board memory and I cannot seem to delete them. If I look via the camera it displays a No files message but if I download via USB all the pictures I don't want keep re-appearing. Advice as to how to delete from on the camera's on board memory would be very gratefully received. Thank you. Ron Bernstein.
