Earlier this week I brought some security cameras from my house to the computer shop to hookup not only for security but also so we could make some funny clips about what happens in the store and on the sidewalk outside of the store. I ended up bringing 4 cameras which included a D-Link DCS-3220 and three D-Link DCS-950G’s. The D-Link DCS-3220 is a much nicer surveillance camera than the D-Link 950G’s however it doesn’t have wireless capabilities like the DCS-950G. The first camera I attempted to get working was the DCS-3220 but almost immediately I ran into issues which made me think I had damaged the camera bringing it to the shop.
I recently learned that most common smart phones do something called geotagging. As people who regularly follow this site will know I have recently been doing a lot of work with a new HTC Evo so I was really interested in this. Geotagging, also called geocoding, is the process of assigning geographic location metadata to a photo. The geographic information can include details such as the latitude and longitude coordinates or city and state details for the geographic location of the photo. I may write a later article on how to actually extract the metadata from a picture however for this post I will just show how to turn it off.
Livestream is a web-based stream video service. I use it because it allows you to broadcast both your computer screen and camera video at the same time in a picture in picture format. You can also switch between the screen and camera during the middle of the video webcast. When you log into a channel,…
I typically transfer images from my iPhone to my Windows XP computer by clicking on My Computer, clicking on the Apple iPhone icon, and then transferring the images to another folder on the computer. Today I plugged in the iPhone via USB to my Windows XP laptop and I was surprised to see that the iPhone Camera was not showing as a drive after clicking on My Computer. To verify I hadn’t made a configuration change on accident that was causing this to not show up I verified that the computer was not seeing the iPhone’s camera by opening up Control Panel and clicking on Scanners and Cameras.
**UPDATE: The first solution is what worked for me but there have been some comments confirming that the below will not solve everyones issue. Another solution to try is to delete any images you have saved to the Camera Roll from email. It appears in some situations if images are saved from emails that it is causing issues with the digital camera driver and you will be unable to retrieve images from the iPhone if you have saved images you received via email. I attempted to duplicate the issue with emailed gif’s and emailed jpg’s but I was unable to though I am sure this issue exists for others as it has already been confirmed at least twice in the comments below.
Recently I was working to organize a bunch of images on my iPhone including figuring out the best way to add and manage Photo Albums. Needless to say I was connecting and disconnecting the iPhone from a Windows XP laptop over and over again. At some point in the process Windows started popping up an error when I was attempting to view the images via the Scanner and Camera wizard. At first the issue was just the fact that it was taking forever to load all of the images but eventually the below error stopped me from viewing any images.
