USB transfer photos from FZ80 to a PC

Neither page 272 nor 275 of the manual identifies the software used in the process to transfer photos from the camera to a PC.

The software pre-selects a great majority (but not all) of the images on the camera's memory card.

Is there a way to change the software's default so it pre-selects NONE of the images?

I'm guessing you have Panasonic's PhotoFunStudio.

Personally I uninstalled it after about 5 minutes due to some very strange behaviour.

When you connect the camera, the computer should see it as a new disc drive and you can simply copy and paste the files across to wherever you want them.

Hope that helps

I think you need to help us out with a bit more information. The software will be on the computer not the camera. Surely the software identifies itself in some way? In the title bar? In the help menu (under 'about')? Are you using Windows or a Mac?

My point is that you don't need additional software at all just the operating system in the computer. Close the programme down and use the file manager on the computer.

Re: USB transfer photos from FZ80 to a PC

I have the USB cable connected to the camera and the PC (Windows).

When I turn the camera on, "USB Mode" appears on the camera's LCD screen.  The display says "Please select the USB mode" and gives two selections ("PictBridge(FTP)" and "PC".

When I touch "PC",  the displays says "Connecting to PC" and a page appears on the PC's monitor.  The resulting page says "Select the items you want to import" and "158 of 558 items are selected".

The available actions are to "Select All" and "Unselect All" ("Select new" is greyed-out).

How can I change the action to default to "Unselect All"?
