Digital Camera Problem PLEASE help!

by inapickle / June 12, 2005 6:17 AM PDT

Hi, I seem to have a problem with the connection between my computer and my digital camera. My camera has worked fine with my computer until now, I've plugged it in as usual but it keeps telling me there is a failure in the connection. Please help I dont have a clue what is going on.

You are not telling us
- what kind of computer?
- what operating system you have?
- what sort of connection you have?
- what camera you have?
- what software are you using?
- what have you tried so far?

But, otherwise ...
Oh yeah! I had exactly the same sort of problem,
but then I fixed it.

Hope that helps! Grin

Chuck, Sounds like a software link problem, or operator error to the camera.
You are so on. What kind of camera, what OS and so on? Will not be the first time that a help question came in without the particulars needed to help out.
Not totally out of the question. Just need more info to help out this poster with their problem.

Inapickle, Have you checked your connections between the camera and computer? If it worked fine before, than it may well be connection problems. Dirt, crud, bad USB cable?
Clean off all the connections and try again.
Try to list all the particulars: OS and version, camera, problens, all. Maybe someone can help you with more info.

Also, your post really would be suited to the digital camera forum. You are in the Graphics forum right now
