I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:Transfer photos from IPhone to external hard drive

Hi liljoe, While HP does not support Apple products, there are tons of tutorials online on how to import photos from an iPhone to Windows.There is nothing special you should have to do to connect the two together.Look at this wiki on how to connect them...4 Ways to Transfer Photos from an iPhone to a Computer - wikiHow In the 4th way on that wiki, where you choose to "import pictuers to", you would navigate to your external hard drive (that you also have connected via USB ) as the place to download to.Just like you would copy and paste files anywhere in Windows. Is that what you needed to know?

My sister has photos of me in my bridesmaid dress that she took with her camera. I saved them on my computer.
I am going out of town to see our family, and cannot take the computer, but want to show the pictures. I will have my camera.

I tried transferring the photos to my camera's memory card by changing their file names to the same type of name as the photos that were taken with my camera. They are displayed as DSCN0610, so I renamed the photos as DSCN0700 and so on. Then I put my memory card in the driver, (G drive) opened up the drive, opened the folder where the pictures from my camera were, and dragged the newly renamed photos into that folder.

I put the memory card back in my camera and hit the display button, and the message I am getting for the spots where those files are is "File contains no image data."

What did I do wrong? What do I do?

Information - My camera is a Nikon Coolpix.

I have also tried importing through Windows Scanner and Camera Wizard. It says there are no photos detected. I have also tried Photoshop - it also says no photos detected. I have made sure the phone is switched on and the phone puts up a message asking if the computer should be trusted. I am new to iphones so the problem may be there.

I just got the new iPhone 4S and I have a 3GS as my old phone with no way to transfer my contacts. I was told I could save a backup of my 3GS to itunes, then load the backup onto my 4S.

Well my 3GS won't backup, it keeps saying "iTunes could not backup the iphone because an error occurred" without any error code. I've wiped my old backup, I've cleared sync history. I'm using a PC with itunes with the latest itunes version 10.5.

What can I do to get my contacts over to the new phone?

To describe what I mean by damaged, think of an ordinary photo, tint the bottom half blue and shift the blue half to the left a little.

When I look at them on the camera they are perfect. Someone suggested there was a patch for this but I'm having a hard time finding anywhere that knows what I am talking about. Any suggestions?

i have some photos on my computer which i want to put on to my fujifilm xd picture card so that i can take them to a shop to get the printed out. i have made sure that the file is a jpeg and the filename has no spaces. i then copied the pictures and attached my camera to my computer.

Hi all,

I have a Dell Dimension 8250 Desktop computer with Window XP (Home Edition) and for the last 5 years I was able to copy pictures from my computer to CD by using the "Copy to CD" function line in the Window's "File and Folder Task" pull down menu.

But just recently for reasons unknown the "Copy to CD" function line has disappeared. Instead I tried to use the "Copy this File (or Folder)" function line to copy pictures to a CD in my F drive. Then a "Move to" destination window will show (which is normal). But when click on the F drive line (with a blank CD) the following message appeared basically I cannot gain access to the CD drive.

I cannot sync photos from my iPhone to my PC.

I may have accidentally moved my "iPhone pics" folder or a file in it. If I did, what can I do to undo the damage?

I have 73 photos on my iPhone in my "camera roll" (I know, I'm taking a lot of pictures). I have no other photos or albums on my phone.

I can sync some data from my iPhone to my PC. For instance, I can sync my "Notes" off my iPhone to the "Notes" in Outlook.

I cannot sync photos. Very frustrating.

FYI, when my iPhone is attached to the computer w the USB cable and I go to "My Computer" in Windows Explorer, my PC does NOT recognize the iPhone. However, iTunes DOES recognize my iPhone.

- 3G
- 16 GB
- v 3.1.2 (the latest is 3.1.3)

- IBM ThinkPad
- 1/2 GB RAM, 32 GB hard drive (I know, I'm ahead of the curve w this hardware config)
- Windows XP SP 3

- v 3.1.2 (the latest is 3.1.3)

Any thoughts as to what to do so that the photos will sync using iTunes?

When I plug my 5s iPhone into my PC, the photos show up in folders with random number & letter labels, instead of showing thumbnails. The photos within a given folder are from the same date range, but there is no way to determine which folder holds the most recent photos. The labels don't make sense. This all started on 3/6/2015, I think, because thats the date all the folders were created. What happened?

A:iPhone photos download problem

How are you transferring the photos to the computer? The iPhone doesn't support data sharing via USB.

Do you have iTunes installed on your PC? If so, open it after connecting your phone to the computer and use the Scanner and Camera wizard to transfer the photos to a folder that you specify. Can you see the thumbnails? You might also be able to use something like the free Nero MediaHome to do the same thing.

I'm not an authority on this stuff so my knowledge is limited.

I've had this computer just a couple of days over one year.  Up until recently, when I plugged my iPhone 6 in, it would recognize & upload all of the new photos from my phone.  It will no longer do that...it chooses the same 5 or 6 pics each time I plug it in & tried to upload that.  Can someone tell me how to resolve this issue?! I'd like to get these photos off of my phone & onto an external hard drive, as I am expecting a new phone to arrive on Saturday.  I've lost 1000's of pictures from my phone & the Cloud in recent months, so I am eager to get all of these pics onto my external hard drive.  Thank you for your help!!!

Hello, I am having some problems copying all of my iphone 5 images and videos to my HP Pavilion 15 Notebook PC. Most of them have copied over to the laptop fine, but some are not opening and it is not telling me if they are videos or images. It says the app does not support the file. I have tried changing to other apps that I have available on the pc and none of them seem to work, for example windows media player, windows gallery and windows photo viewer are not allowing me to open them. I have been trying to resolve this problem for a while and I need to do so asap as I currently have no memory on my phone, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

My family, later than most, has now gotten to the "tipping point" where we're taking more photos with an iphone than with a "real camera." But we're still "old school" enough that we like to print some of the better shots. And the iphone, which makes picture taking pretty easy, has made photo organizing in Windows very hard.

What I'd like to do is connect the iphone to my computer as a device, "see" the photos, which are presumably stored in some organized manner on the phone, "drag" them to the Win7 computer, and then of course it becomes elementary to do whatever I want with them.

For starters, I can't even figure out how to "connect" the phone to the computer. The phone's charger has a cord that has a Windows USB connector on one end, and another connector that attaches to the phone. However, using this cord doesn't cause the phone to "appear" in Windows Explorer, or Devices and Printers.

So question 1 is what does the "right" cord look like and where do I attach it to the phone?

I assume the rest is either intuitive or googleable, but once the phone is connected and recognized by Windows, where are the photos stored?

I can't be the first person wondering this, but I cannot find an answer using google, or even within these usually very helpful forums.

A:Free and simple alternative software to move photos in pc to iphone ?

This may be a silly question but have you tried connecting your phone to your computer by cable ?  I imagine you would need a USB A to Lightning one since Apple go their own way on connectors. That is of course assuming the iPhone has an external connector of any sort.
If it is possible to connect them by cable then, with the phone switched on, you should be able to 'see' the phone's memory in Windows/File Explorer. If you can see the memory then it should be a simple 'drag and drop' operation to move the photos you want across.
As you can gather my experience with iPhones approaches zero but this technique works with other phones and cameras.

Someone should be along to help you.  I am not familiar with that process, software or what you are trying to transfer.  You can't get this info from the instructions?  You might just download them to a usb, from XP, then just transfer them over, that would be the easy way.  I might take longer but easier.
I don't understand the ZIO flash drive and applying it.  Are you talking about a regular flash drive usb?  If so just plug it in and copy your files over to it, then to the new pc.

A:Transfer iPhone game apps to Android phone

I think iPhone and Andriods have different OS architectures. Thus transferring the app from iPhone would not run on the Andriod.

If the games are online games, your game state might be saved online, and there might be no need to transfer. Just download the Andriod version and sign in. See if progress is the same.

I had many photos stored on an external cartridge drive called an Avatar Shark. The interface was PCMCIA (PC Card) 16-bit.
I have copied many of the .jpg files back onto the Thinkpad (Win 95). My intention was to use a PCMCIA to USB adapter card to move the files onto a USB flash drive so I could then copy them onto my new computer (Win Vista.)
The problem is that all these adapters assume a 32-bit OS and will not fit into the 16-bit slot. I can't find a 16-bit PCMCIA to USB adapter, probably not feasible anyway because of the difference in transfer rates.
How do I get these &^%$%^% files out of the Thinkpad??? (I might do transfers to floppies and be there the rest of my life.)
Any other ideas much appreciated.
Thank you.
P.S. Avatar is out of business, no drivers for other than Win 95.

A:How to transfer pictures from Skydrive to Photos?

Yes. Copies will remain on your skydrive if you download them. However, if you have the skydrive app installed on your PC, it will automatically sync with your skydrive on cloud and you can treat this app just like a regular folder where you can save, share, move or copy files in and out of it.
Upload is when you want to put files on your skydrive. After clicking it, you have the option to drag and drop files into it or just do manual browse to get to the file that you want to upload.
