Why doesn't the scanner and camera wizard just open automatically when the camera is plugged into your computer? How do you make the scanner and camera wizard open automatically? These are just a sample of questions that I get emailed to me everyday!
My theory is that if you hear a noise when you connect your digital camera to your computer, then that is a good sign. It means that the computer has recognized your device and knows it's there. The next step is to transfers photos from your digital camera to your computer. This is usually done with the automatic scanner and camera wizard.
Here's how to open the scanner and camera wizard:
- Go to the start menu and choose my computer from there.
- If your camera is connected and is turned on there will be an icon there.
- Right click on the digital camera icon and choose get pictures from the menu.
- This will start the automatic scanner and camera wizard.
You can also make the automatic scanner and camera wizard start when you connect your digital camera.
