Camera Does Not Automatically Connect After Windows 8 Refresh?
Apr 3, 2013
I used the Windows 8 Refresh and like many others I seem to have lost all the important files. Where as I could simply connect my Camera and it would automatically connect now it does't . AVG, I Tunes, Abi all lost. How can I restore the automatic connection etc? I can't even use the tool bar AVForums when writing a message?
When I upgraded to Win8.1, it asked if I wanted to automatically connect to my hidden network. I've never set up a hidden network. Sometimes it shows up in my list of WiFi connections. My computer also shows me as belonging to a workgroup, which I never joined. Then one day another network showed up called TOA24 and it was set up to automatically connect. Now it shows up every time I connect to my WiFi connection. Is it possible to determine how my computer joined a workgroup without my knowledge or created a hidden network? I have Norton Security Suite (through Comcast) running on this computer.

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 8.1 and my camera app recently stopped working. When I open the app a message comes up saying - We can't get to the camera roll right now.Something went wrong while accessing the camera roll.
I assume that the default save location for photos and videos is my pictures library but there is definitely a folder there called "Camera Roll" so what is the problem? Also, is there any way that I can get the photos to save to SkyDrive?
Whenever I boot up my computer, I always have to go and connect to the internet. It doesn't automatically connect to the internet. I don't want to do this anymore. I tried clicking "Connect Automatically," but that didn't solve the problem. I also tried troubleshooting. It found some problems, and it was the problems were fixed but it still doesn't work.
Windows 8 problems. How to easily and quickly download selected photos from my camera. When I tried it was taking forever as the system seemed to be going through opening every single photo on my camera and I gave up waiting. I just want to be able to download the latest ones not all of the ones I have on my camera.
Set someone up with new Windows 8 PC. Everything has gone fine but when he plugged in his digital camera via USB and turnited it on(Canon Asomething or other) Windows makes a single tone and does nothing. Removing the cable also gives out a single tone.
After loading pictures from my camera the pictures on the camera do not delete. Win 7 had a little box to check to delete the pictures. How do you set this in Win 8? I have looked and cannot find the place to set this.
I have a Sony DVD camera (mdl DVR-HC85) that has USB and firewire cables for connection to a computer for the purpose of transferring video to computer programs. Both cables work fine with Windows XP. However, Windows 8 will not recognize the camera when connected by a USB cable. I was told by Sony that neither Windows Vista, Windows 7 nor Windows 8 will recognize the camera when using a USB cable.
I have a Dell computer with Windows 8 that does not have firewire nor can a firewire card be installed.
I am totally unhappy about windows 8. Many good features from earlier windows are missing such as -
1) You can not pin "Calculator" to the task bar. In earlier versions you could open the calculator, over other windows. 2) While scrolling to folders / files in Explorer or any software, the screen jumps abruptly to up or down. 3) While transferring Images from camera. You can not select part images for transfer along with renaming. This feature was available in Windows XP.
i was able to get as far as having the px load from camera to computer & somehow all px got installed into the computer but only temporarily ! While camera was still attached to tower, I clicked on Control Panel/Computer/then the list of programs in computer and then i saw the name of the camera (cannon Power Shot) ...then Cannon 100, clicked on that and then saw all px - was able to individually email some to myself but when i detached cable from tower to camera and went back to ''Computer'' found Cannon 100 but no px were there -so obviously i wasn't able to save them.....but strangely enough 3 of the downloaded px were in the ''DCIM' folder (whatever that term means)...but i don't know how those 3 got there ! So i got far enough to download & 'view' but don't know how to ''save'' the px in the computer for future viewing without the necessity of attaching the camera....besides i'd like to delete some px from the camera once saved into the computer.....I'm so used to XP
I have a Samsung 500t and after clean install 8.1 i notice the camera app does not hv any resolution setting so now my 8 mpixel front cam is limited to 2mpixel. wtf?? how can ms f up even such a basic thing? I mean if this is the way Ms is going about doing bizniz its no wonder they are losing to android. this setting was present in 8.0. iwas hoping for better camera app like the ability to turn flash on off on demand but of course instead of improving its regression...
I used the san disk from my digital camera to export the photos from it onto my computer. Once it was completed I was unable to find the photos anywhere on my computer. I've checked My Pictures, files, and every other place I could think of and they are nowhere to be found. I use Windows 8.1 O/S.
How come the camera app lags if I go to like 1200x800 or more.. I got a beast machine. Also, how do you take a picture with the camera app? The button on my webcam does nothing and I'd rather use a software button.
I just got my tablet and the first thing I did is have it start in Desktop-mode so I never have to see that awful and useless toy Metro UI. Even on a tablet the desktop is superior. Go figure. I hate every time I accidentally click that "Start" button which brings me to Metro.
Anyway, the only way I can use the built-in camera from desktop is to "search" for camera and the Metro camera app shows up and I can take pictures. I even created a desktop short cut in desktop mode for that camera. But since that is a Metro app, it doesn't seem to work from Desktop.
1. is there a way to make this Metro camera app work from Desktop?
2. Is there a different desktop app or program to use camera from desktop?
It also would be nice to be able to zoom and have flashlight etc. this camera doesn't seem as great as my phone camera. Or am I missing something?
The IP camera I'm using UCam247 1080P uses ActiveX so IE is my only option. If I use Chrome/FF the manual record controls disappear, so I'd really like to get this working with IE again. 7 days ago the camera was working OK using 192.168.0.39 (an auto assigned IP on set-up), but then having used it for 2 months the IP suddenly changed automatically and the camera dropped connection. The IP now is 192.168.0.4.
The problem seems to be related to me having changed the default password. It seems as though IE is remembering the new password and when the camera changed the IP, the password seems to have defaulted to the standard password. But IE now won't let me change this password, nor access the camera. At least this appears to be the issue.
Fast forward to now, the IP now assigned is 192.168.0.4 which is fine. But when I try to access this in IE, I get this message:
"Access Error: Unauthorized
when trying to obtain /en/player/activex_hd.asp Access to this document requires a User ID"
I've tried everything I can think of to get IE working. Updates to latest V11, added IP to Compatibility View Settings, enabled all ActiveX controls, reset the browsing and password history, unchecked auto complete for passwords.
It's odd that this password box below is not popping up, so I can change the password. Image taken from another PC.
I upgraded my laptop software to win8.1. My webcam in the device manager looks to the integrated camera but webcam is not working. I tested by Dell PC Diagnostics shows my webcam is installed and its picture from camera showed but windows camera app and all app don't show anything.
i used to use windows 8.1 for about a year and it was running well but lately my laptop became slow i used refresh PC and now i use windows 8 the problem here is that ican't upgrade to 8.1 unless i install all previous updates when i try to download them via windows update it just stucks at 0% i tried many times and tried windows update diagnostic and this was the result but still no response it's 0%
i have a new laptop (intel core i5 @ 2,6GHz, 4GB RAM) running windows 8 but because i had some issues such as:
store couldn't work right, task manager needed more than 2 minutes to open, shutting down needed more time than windows 7, i decided to make a refresh (the function of windows, you can use to reset them somehow without losing your files). It goes slow all the time, whenever i click anything. I've downloaded and installed all of the updates.
Notice that i have only the basic programs running and mcafee (i know it's "heavy" programme but i didn't have problem before the refresh)
I am having an issue with the amount of time that it takes for this to complete. I have heard that it can take a bit of time, but my laptop(Acer Aspire V3-771G-9809 Notebook Intel Core i7 3632QM (2.20GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M) has been stuck on 60% for over 24 hours. I am wondering if this is something to be concerned about or do you think everything will be okay?
"Microsoft has introduced two interesting and very useful features in Windows 8. Refresh PC and Reset PC are the two new features that fix all Windows issues by refreshing settings or resetting everything. These features allow you set your Windows 8 settings to their defaults, or reset Windows 8 to factory settings (original settings) by deleting data and installed apps.
Though most of us have the Windows 8 installation media, it’s always a good idea to make necessary changes to the default settings so that you can Reset Windows 8 without inserting the installation or recovery media."
I was getting repeated blue screens of death. My laptop would crash and then restart only to crash again within 2 minutes, this just kept happening. So I figured I would just factory reset my laptop because it should have a recovery image on it since there is no optical drive. The factory reset failed at 64%, so I did it again and it failed in the exact spot again. Now the computer won't boot up. It says automatic repair which ends up failing and it gives me 2 options to either shut down or go through the advanced options. Is there anyway I can download windows 8 onto an external drive and install it like that? I have no clue what to do at this moment.
