Copy picture files from camera
Posted on 2006-05-19
I am creating a VB 6 application to copy picture files from a camera and save them on the local hard drive. The users of this program have limited computer knowledge so I am trying to make it as simple as possible. What I have written so far works fine as long as the camera shows up as a removable drive. In that case I use the use the Drive control and code to find a removable drive, then use the FileSystemObject to copy the files. Some cameras, most notably certain Kodak models do not appear as a removable drive. Instead they are listed under Cameras and Scanners in Windows Explorer. I am assuming that they are Twain devices. In code, how can I access these cameras to copy the picture files?
Thanks in advance for any help.
