Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

What programs have you tried so far (with no result I presume, but if any produced error messages, those would be of significance) ?

And, has this camera ever worked before with this - or any other - computer?
