Can't get photos off digital camera

  1. For Christmas I bought my son a Digital Concepts Kidz Camera. it was only $20 and I did not expect it to be great, but he is not responsible enough for something nicer. Anyway, when we plugged it in at Christmas I got a message that said tehis device was not compatible. I have Windows Vista. However, this week I was finally able to find the driver online, I downloaded it and plugged the camera in and I did not get that message, so I thought it was okay. My son has now taken some pictures on the camera, but when I plug it in nothing comes up prompting me to download pictures. I also checked under my computer, but it does not show that any removable devices are plugged in, and when I checked in Picasa, and tried to import it the camera does not come up.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for me to get the pictures off my son's camera? Do I need to reinstall the driver? Or what other things can I do to get my computer to recognize the camera? This camera is made by the Sakar company and the model number is 98379.

    Thanks

    Unplug your USB storage devices and see this post for How to use the DriveCleanupTool. Give it a shot. Then replug the camera to see if it helped any.

    /* edit */
    The tool removes all the USB drivers for all unplugged USB storage devices. Then just replug your USB devices for clean reinstalls. (Sometimes Windows "gets confused"

    I tend to go for a brand that seems to be supported well in general on the Internet. If you need some picture recognitions software try

    Version 3 with REAL LEARNING (OBJECT IDENTIFICATION AND NAMING WHEN POSSIBLE) AND AUTONOMOUS LEARNING ALSO ANALYSIS INFORMATION IS SHARED OVER THE INTERNET SO THAT IT LEARNS FROM OTHER USERS ALL OVER THE WORLD.
