[color=#3366FF][b][i]Hi all. I have windows XP and a Sharp VL-Z5 camera/camcorder. I have a bunch of photos which I can only veiw from the camera. I have gone to sharp's web site but coun't figure out what I am supposed to have to get the pic's out of the camera. Any ideas???? I really need to get those pictures downloaded in to my pc, but they computer does not seem to recognize or extract the picture files. Is there any cheap way to get my pc to upload my pictures from that camera? Any help would be appreciated.
I did go to one tech-type web site and since about two weeks, they have not posted anything at all on this subject.
Thank you & Be Well,

Hawk

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go.

Your camera should have come with software on a CD that allows you to transfer the files. If you do not have the CD, go to the maufacturer's website and look for drivers/software that you need to extract the photos.

If you have trouble finding the software, let me know the brand and model # of your camera and I will look for you.

Hi, the camera is a Sharp DL-Z5 and it didn't come with a disc as my son bought it on Ebay. It "acts" like it is extracting the pictures but it (the pc) says something like "unable to extract files". I do not know what to do. Thanks again for any more help.
Be well,
Hawk

Are you sure it is DL and not VL?

Google is correcting me and saying it is VL. Let me know if Google is wrong or not.

Do you see this anywhere on the camera?: Viewcam VL-Z5

Or does it look like this?

Jeez, I seem to have seriously lost track of this topic. I'm very sorry for keeping you waiting :whistling:

Please confirm that your camera looks like this:

If not, then we've got the wrong brand/model. In that case, look at the camera again and let me know the brand/model.

If that is your camera, then download and install the following:

Download 1

Download 2

Download and install them in that order.
