Digital Camera Support in Vista?


J

John G. Robert

I've been reading much of what is discussed in this NG and wanted to throw
out a quick question.



Is there any chance that SP1 for Vista will contain better support for
digital cameras?



My Dell XPS 410 running Vista Home Premium see's my Olympus C-8080 but also
reports no storage device can be found.

The drive appears in Windows Explorer but the folder contains nothing. Tried
photo gallery with no results either.



A card reader is on the way to solve this but I was a bit frustrated that
this relatively new camera wouldn't cooperate in Vista.



Thanks for any feedback you can provide.

Otherwise I really enjoy the fresh look and feel to Vista.



btw, I did a lot of searching on this topic but never found a solution that
worked.

I did find a work around for my older HP Photosmart 1000 Printer though.

IMHO a card reader is a much superior solution. It works on all modern OSs
(even Linux), is generally faster, and saves the batteries.

Unfortunately the C-8080 has been around since Win 98/SE days & it is
unlikely Oylimus or MS will bring out drivers for Vista - so the card reader
is most probably the best option.
They just want us all to buy new equipment!!!!

Just get a card reader, like you said, and plug it into your USB and use a
free editing program like Gimp or Picasa
