Hi,


Can you tell us how you tried to download the card?

 

Were you using a card reader plugged into your mac or connecting the camera to your Mac?

 

Can you also tell us what type of card the one you downloaded successfully was?

 

Thanks

hello

the first thing I did was to plug the into the computer and then into the camera, then I turned the camera on by pushing the view images button as noted in the instructions for the camera. the green light flashed for a while but on the camera screen there was a message noting "communication error". I moved the cord to another usb port but got the same result. I tried it with the lock on and and then off but it was the same result.

the successful download was from a 4GB SDHC class 2 card from Micro Center.

my card is a Kingston 8GB SDHC class 4.

thanks

so, I have not heard anything fromyou today and I have been working on the problem and in fact have solved it by using a card reader rather than going through the camera. maybe the 8GB was too much for the wire connecting the camera and computer.

since I have figured this out we need to reconcile what the deal is between us. tell me what your typical deal is. thank you Peter Landon

Hi Peter,

 

I am terribly sorry, I never received notice of your reply to me and was totally unaware you had responded.

 

As you fixed the issue yourself you have two options, the first is for me to ask for this question to be closed and then you can leave your deposit on the site for next time or I can put in a refund request for you so that your deposit is returned to you.

 

Please let me know what you prefer.

 

Thanks

Eric

thanks. Pete

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
