thanks buck 52, it is only about 2 ft. long the one that plugs into the camera to the computer (usb)? (grey) The initial start-up calls for a camera type, installed the one that was close, so that should have eliminated that problem,need all the help I can get up here in cold Canada!
Is it connected through USB? Serial? What operating system are you running? Are you absolutely positive the camera is on? I've seen some that don't display the power status in an obvious way.
What camera is it? (Make, Model, etc.)
buck, max, camera is a Sony DSC-S30 and it has a very prominent on/off indicator, windows me, MGI Photosuite 8.0 for Windows, and I did find Port B disabled, changed that to enable, that still didn't work out so well, finally called the store where I bought it and the manager is coming to my place Monday to fix it hopefully, I'll keep trying to do it myself with all your input of course. I'm going to check that port thing again though.
Max, I'm running Windows ME and the port is small and flat, the camera screen says usb and PC mode messeges as well, this would indicate to me that all is well there, will go into the port setup next, may just start all over again and document each move to make sure I can fix something if I mess up.
Buck, the screen shows USB, below that are 4 little lights, that initialy show red then go to I'll say white. The error comes on when I go Get Photos>Sanyo Camera>error box Accessing Camera.... camera is not connected Please check that the cable is connected to the PC
You did say Sony? When the lights change to white open My Computer from your desktop. Is there an icon labeled Removable Disk [X:]? If so ... click on it ..then click on the folder Dcim then click the folder 100msdcf there should be your pictures.
I'm using 98SE not ME and don't know if you have a My Computer icon on your desktop.
also you may have to go in and remove any reference to the Sanyo camera and then reinstall the drivers from the CD that came with the camera before this will work
I have a Sony DSC-S70 but the procedure should be close to the same
