I've been trying to upload photos from my acer ce-5330 digital camera to my P.C. (running windows XP), but having problems. I connect my camera to p.c., then I have to go to 'my computer', I click on the icon for the camera, then click on 'get photos from camera' but then get the following msg: The computer cannot detect the camera or scanner. I've tried using the camera wizard to no avail.
Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help

Did you get any software with the camera and if so have you tried it?

Have you tried rebooting with the camera connected,hopefully xp will recognise the device.

No software came with the camera, I know when I connect it to pc options should automatically appear. but they don't.

Have you tried rebooting while the camera is connected ?

Try running ccleaner and reboot then try the camera again. click here

If you connect the camera to the PC and it appears in my computer probably as a removeable hard drive, what happens if you double click the icon? Does it open? I am assumming there is at least one picture on it.

I'm not sure skidzy it could be thats what she means.
I was just on the Acer website and theres nothing there for their cameras.

Just looked under the add cameras and nothing from Acer is mentioned.
