As I connect the camera to the computer, the recent pictures I to

I took some recent pictures with the camera. As I connect the camera to the computer the recent pictures I took turned out to be the pictures I have taken way before. But when I double-click on it to see the whole view of the picture it turns into the recent picture. What is wrong?

Nothing is wrong. The file names of the recent pictures probably duplicate those of your old pictures. Your computer is probably caching the images associated with those names until you double-click on them.

Since you declined to specify the type of computer and the software you're using, I'm afraid I can't tell you how to clear the cache. I also assume you're not really connecting your 35mm SLR camera to your computer.

Kodak easyshare dx7440 won't be detected?


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

Trouble with downloading photos


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries. The card reader doesn't care what camera took the pictures, so you can use it with any camera (assuming the card itself fits).

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

As I connect the camera to the computer, the recent pictures I to


From the question, I'm going to assume we're dealing with some kind of digital camera despite the fact that you posted the question in a film camera thread.

It seems as if the computer operating system or whatever program you're using is displaying cached thumbnails. For example, if you have a file named DSC_0003.JPG, the computer is showing you the thumbnail from the last file named DSC_0003.JPG it's seen. If there's a "Refresh" item in the menu (possibly in the View menu), try it and see if everything refreshes.

If that's not the problem, could you specify the make and model camera, whether you're connecting the camera to the computer or putting the card into a card reader, the computer operating system and version, and what program you're using to view your pictures.
