otek scanner can not find camera
Looks like this will not go away. I managed to down load the program as suggested in previous forum. Now all I get when I click on the icon is "can not find camera" Anyone out there now what to do. I am not too tech minded so a simple answer would be best.

What program are you referring to?

I don't really understand your problem so please fully describe what you are trying to do.

The Otek scanner is a film scanner as far as I know. You put traditional, exposed camera film into it to scan the individual frames to digitize them. It's your reference to "cannot find camera" that puzzles me. What does a camera have to do with it?

I have down loaded the program from the OTEK site as the disc supplied does not seem to work. OK I have the icon on my desk top but when I click on his icon all I get is a message saying "can not find camera". Hence I have no way of viewing or moving scanned negatives or slides to disc or CD. The scanner seems to work, as I do have a negative scanned on the chip, which I can view through the scanner viewer. I could put the chip in my camera and move the pictures around that way but I should not have to do that.

The camera would be the device attached to the PC by the USB. The PC does not know that it is a scanner, just a device at the end of a cable
