USA Digital Camara into UK Win95

By alan.robinson14 ·
A recent xmas present from the States, a digital camara, fails to connect to pc.

The mouse locks up. It does display 7, the exact number of images taken on the camera, but fails to display any images as though the cable, with a large cylinder on it, is faulty.

Is this a US to UK problem, a duff cable, a duff camera, or a duff PC.

Any ideas

Alan

I wouldn't expect this is an international compatibility issue. I am guessing this is a serial cable and not USB? With your mouse locking up I am wondering if maybe your Serial Port and Mouse Port aren't conflicting? Just a thought....

Thanks, that's what I thought it might be. However, I don't know how to check COM1 and COM2 for conflict. I have tried switching mouse to COM2 and camera on COM1 but same Mouse gets sluggish then stops altogether. ctl-alt-del only way out.

Anyway thanks.

If you are using a camera with USB port, you will need at least Windows 98 to get good results. Windows 95 OSR 2.1 (not OSR 2.0) and onward has support one can add, but it is not very reliable. If you are using Firewire (IEEE 1394) you will need at least Windows 98 Second Edition to get good results.
