transfering from camera to PC

  granma.m 13:14 21 Jun 2008

I have GeniusD5123 camera.It should be just plug and play to transfer photos, no driver needed, but when I try to do this my computer won,t recognise the device.Can anyone tell me what to do next. I am sure there is a very simple explanation but I do not have a clue.

Does the camera have a setting to connect to PC
It is best to look in the manual for the camera.

Thanks for your reply Peter. No there is no setting for this. According to the manual it is simply a matter of connecting the cable.I should have said that this is not a new camera.I did use it some time ago and had the same problem and I can't for the life of me remember how I sorted it.

Have you turned the camera and then connect the camera to pc or tried connecting the camera to pc and then turning on

Would provide a reference to the camera to check out- And it came up with --Nothing.
The camera does not exist.

Do you have a software disk for the camera?
If so is there a manual in PDF format thereon?

Most camera on switch on go to taking mode.
To look at the images on the back screen usually an additional control/button/twist of a dial is required to access the memory/media card.
For example to switch on take a pic. in my wife's Olympus simple camera- a slide over the lens has to be moved- and to shut down the slide goes back.
However to look at the images a simple button on the back is pressed - the slide stays shut.
So something of this order is what to do I would imagine

I tried Google as well.I have even tried to get on the Genius site but to no avail.I think I may try throwing it at the wall, I've done everything else.

  granma.m 15:54 21 Jun 2008

DONE IT.{no I didn't throw it} I don't really know how.
I decided to switch off and start again.An earlier restart didn't work.So there we are.When in doubt switch off.
thanks to all who replied.
