Welcome and thanks for your question.

I'm Todd and I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.

Please note that electronics troubleshooting is not always easy and sometimes I will not be able to find solution for your problem immediately, so if my first answer does not resolve your problem or you need more information please do not rate my answer negative BAD SERVICE or POOR SERVICE (that will result in a permanent negative feedback on my record - very damaging for me). Please use "Reply to Expert" button instead.


Yes, it is possible to transfer pictures to your laptop. There are two ways to transfer it.

A. If you have driver installed on your computer (if you connected your camera to computer before to transfer pictures successfully) follow the steps below:

Use USB cable to connect your camera to laptop. Select "PC" on your camera (if "PictBridge PTP" is selected, cancel it). On your computer: Go to "Computer" or "My Computer", and check "DCIM", "MISC" and "PRIVATE1" folders. In one of them you will find your pictures.

B. If you trying to connect your camera to laptop for the first time use the link below to download software that will allow you easy pictures transfer.

click here to download software

Scroll down and select "Software" tab. Click and download "PHOTOfunSTUDIO Software Installation (for Windows)". After installation, use USB cable to connect your camera, open the software and copy pictures to your computer.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any difficulties. I will be happy to help with any follow up questions.
