In May of 1998, I bought a full size Dodge van with 140,000 miles. They told me it had a new tranny in it, as our main transmission shop had serviced it, but left it 7 quarts low, so it had self destructed. This was in February of 1998-so 4 months prior to me buying it! It had a slow engaging reverse, so got the paper work from seller, went to talk with Certified. They said it needed a new transmission to the tune of $2500.00! I said that was interesting as they had just done it 4 months prior! All of a sudden they could fix it, no problem! I have a problem trusting that shop!

If you're a computer repairman, maybe you can answer a quick question.

I'm setting up a new computer with Windows 7, and it won't recognize my digital camera.

Same camera has worked OK on several other computers, including the one I'm replacing.

I transferred a lot of stuff over from my old computer before I even tried connecting the camera, but the camera worked fine on the old computer, and still does, so I don't see how any of the stuff I transferred could be the problem.

Any suggestions? The whole story is, this computer is one Best Buy gave as a replacement for one that had many problems right from the start. Everything else has worked great on this one till I tried to download some photos.

Any clues would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

try a different USB port to plug your camera cable into.
if your problem is you cant get older software to load,you will need the WIN 7 version...the camera should show up as another drive in windows explorer...you can move files from there.

Bingo!!

I'd added a USB extender with four ports to bring ports to the front of the computer, and that's what I was plugging the camera in to.

When I plugged the camera into one of the original ports on the computer, it worked.

Thanks a bunch! Guess I should have thought of that. Although the extension ports have worked on other stuff.

Model # and brand of the camera would be needed to come close to helping you.

Tho XP and Windows 7 are the better options, lots of stuff should work on both, some very early XP hardware might not work on W7?

Likely you just need to go to the manufactuerers web site and find new drivers suitable for W7?
