Problems with import pictures from digital camera

by blackwebcrow / June 30, 2007 10:09 PM PDT

I,ve just upgrades my computer (Acer Aspire E380, AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core Processor 3800+) to Vista. Everything is working very good exept import of my digital pics!

About 70% are fine, but the rest of the pics isn't. They come up as only half or with strange colors...
Same problem with pics from a USB flash
I have upgrade all drivers.
Please help me!

Did you install the latest for this? Also try uninstalling the display adapter in device manager and reboot.

Thank you, but I did this, it didn't work. Same problem.
I don't think it is the graphic card. All the pictures I have on the computer is showing correct. Also pictures from a cd.

Picture transfer problems to/from USB attached devices

I too am having similar problems. I have an Acer Aspire E380 with AMDAthlon 64 x 2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ 2.20 GHz. It happens when i try to import pictures from my Sony DSC-V1 camera (read action). it also happens if I try to save a picture from Internet Explorer onto a USB extermal drive (write action). The files immediately corrupt when I try to save. The common denominator appears to be transferring to/from external disks attached via USB. Not sure whether it's an Acer driver issue or Vista.

Did you find a solution?

My in-laws are having the same problem on Windows Vista. Did you ever find a solution? When importing photos, most are okay, but some look "choppy" or have strange colors and skips in the image. Sounds like a similar problem to yours. I have tried two cameras with the same outcome.
