It’s a Love/Hate Relationship
As I mentioned in my previous blog, downloading Windows 10 destroyed my ability to download photos onto my computer from my camera’s memory card.
A trouble-shooting action told me I needed a new driver.
Though a bit of research on the internet, which turned up lots of helpful commercial offers, I learned I needed up to 142 new drivers. But finally I found a Microsoft program that said I only needed to update 14 drivers. Not wanting to buy a new computer, I decided to risk it, although downloading any programs gives me the heebie jeebies.
Thankfully, after multiple downloads and restarting of the computer, and hours simply trying to locate if Driver E was on my computer – a simple task before Windows 10 – it worked.
Once again I can import pictures from my camera onto my computer. It’s not as easy as before, but it is doable.
And it only cost me two frustrated days of fiddling with my computer – and $30 for a year’s update of my drivers.
There is an upside, however. Solving one of my quirky computer problems always makes me feel like a genius.
