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?

Network / Sharing :: How To Connect A Camera Using WiFi Direct

Aug 6, 2014

I have a new Lumix GX7 camera which I'm trying to connect to a Dell laptop running Windows8.1 using WiFi direct.

The laptop sees the camera's WiFi signal but connects with "Limited Connectivity" when I input the camera's SSID and password.

What does Limited Connectivity mean and what should I check to enable a full connection so I can copy photos from the camera to PC via WiFi?

How To Automatically Connect To Hidden Network

May 8, 2014

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.

Apps / Software :: Camera App Can't Find Camera Roll?

Apr 10, 2014

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?

Hardware Drivers :: Windows 8 USB Compatibility With Sony DVD Camera

Feb 6, 2013

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.

Windows 8.1 - Pin Calculator To Taskbar / Scrolling Files And Image Transfer From Camera

Nov 12, 2013

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.

How To Save Px From Camera Into Win 8

May 22, 2014

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

Tablets :: Surface Pro 2 - Use Camera In Desktop Mode?

Apr 5, 2014

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?

Hardware Drivers :: Internet Explorer - Setting Up IP Camera

Jul 10, 2014

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 (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

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 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.

Windows 8 Goes Slow After Refresh?

Sep 9, 2013

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)

How To Reset Or Refresh Windows 8 Without DVD

Jan 28, 2013

"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."

Windows 8 Refresh Failed

Mar 25, 2013

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.
