Windows 8 - Pictures Do Not Delete On Camera After Loading
Sep 23, 2013
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.
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.
It is astounding to me that Microsoft would not allow users to delete a user picture, if the user didn't want one at the logon screen.
What possible reason is there to disallow deleting the picture. I know you can create a blank jpg, use a different picture, but why not just eliminate the user picture. A choice to get rid of that bad decision some of us make in testing and trying things is just too puzzling to let go.
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?
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.
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?
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 was playing Civilizations V on my computer when I wanted to load a savegame. While loading the savegame, Civilizations stopped responding, so I waited a little for the window to respond and come back to its normal state. After waiting for an unusually long time (about 2 or 3 minutes), I decided to whip up the task manager, but I couldn't do that either. After I realized my computer was completely frozen, I pressed the restart button on my computer.
Things went by as usual-the bootup screen and all that good stuff. After the loading screen (with the windows logo and the circling dots) went by normally, the screen blacked out as usual (to transition into the lock screen), but then it stayed like that. I thought there was some trivial, technical error, so I restarted again, but same thing, it was stuck after the loading screen.
I pressed shutdown and install updates. The computer has since been unable to restart. It keeps giving the message that it is repairing the error and going to restart. Which is the message it keeps giving every time it restarts.
I recovered as much as I can by loading Ubuntu through a USB drive. I do not want to send the laptop back to the manufacturer to reinstall Windows because the process is going to take far too long and I really need my laptop.
Is there any way I can either recover the system or format and reinstall Windows? No recovery cd was given or USB produced before the system
I bought a new Toshiba i5 laptop a month ago with Windows 8. The Store worked just fine until about two weeks ago. The apps I have downloaded work but now the store will not load. I get a green screen and the spinning wheel of death (loading). No error message, just constant spinning and the Store logo.
I have ran the app troubleshooter.
I have made sure updates are automatic and up to date.
I have cleared the Store cache.
When I ran the app troubleshooter it took me to a device troubleshooter. It comes up with messages that say:
"hardware changes might not have been detected" "display adapter drivers might be out of date" "windows store configuration might be damaged".
I cannot find anything in my device manager that has the yellow triangle next to it.
yesterday my laptop turned off suddenly and since then, everytime I turn it on it turns off before windows loading.I isn't hard drive issue cause I checked it and it works fine on other pc.I even tried to boot from cd but again it turns off.
I had a dual boot system (8/ubuntu 10.12) but my win8 got messed up. Wanted to do a fresh install from my recovery usb (I made the day I got the computer) but it won't load in UEFI mode. In CMS mode the recovery stops and tells me to go into UEFI. The error given is "disk error. gpt7 cannot be found"
After days of trying fixes I tried to do a format and clean install. Still the same problem.
If I enter through UEFI shell, I can go into the USB and start the bootx64.uefi, but I get the error once again. I can use a windows 7 recovery disk (not a full install though) to format my drive to gpt and create the partitions, but it doen't effect the USB not working. (Yes I checked it for being faulty already).
I have found little issue, that when i run Windows Explorer and browse folders, it takes very long time to open folder content, about 10 sec. (see picture).That's just when i power on computer or restart, after first slow loading folders, then works fine.
I found that on both disks, SSD and HDD. I have Windows 8.1 installed, clean install.
I didn't notice that on my earlier setups. My hardware configuration didn't change.
