I’ve been looking for a cheap lo-res digital camera with which to take photos for this very blog. I’ve not had much luck so far. I mentioned this to Steve who remembered he had a JamCam they’d bought for Megan and which she isn’t using. OK I thought, I’ll try that.
Steve brought it round today, and I took a few snaps. In the sun, indoors, at different resolutions etc.
Much later I installed the software, installed the updated drivers, and installed the update to the application software. Three re-boots later and I’m ready to download the pictures and see what they look like.
No go! The software detects the camera, starts to download, “downloading thumbnail 1 of 16, 2 of 16…” and nothing. It sticks there and will not go any further.
I tried all kinds. I even cleared the camera, took out the smart media card, and took just one picture. Nothing. It refuses to download. I changed the battery. Nothing.
So I uninstalled the software (and Adobe PhotoDeluxe refused to uninstall) and put it back in the bag.
Sorry Steve, I know it works on your PC, but it refuses to work on mine.
I’ll keep looking.
