I am unable to transfer photos from my camera (HP Photosmart M547) to my computer running Windows 7. The computer recognizes the camera as a removable drive (see below), but it does not detect any photos in it. Please help me.

It's connected via USB or you put the memory card in the slot? – Christopher Chipps May 18 '13 at 4:13
its connected via USB. device manager is showing warning that device cannot start. I tried updating driver, but device manager says I have the latest driver. – morpheus May 18 '13 at 4:17
Did you try rolling back the driver or do you have another PC/laptop you can try uploading onto? – Christopher Chipps May 19 '13 at 4:04
I think the problem is that Hp has not released driver for windows 7. I downloaded the driver from their website for Windows Vista, and it does not install on a windows 7 machine. I tried on another win 7 machine also, it doesn't work. – morpheus May 19 '13 at 18:00
Just use a USB card reader. That's what I carry around and use with all my cameras; never bother connecting them directly and wasting battery charge while I select and/or transfer images to the PC. – Karan May 19 '13 at 22:53

A yellow triangle on the "Hewlett-Packard Digital Camera" icon (in the device manager) indicate you a driver problem. Solve it by right-clicking, "Update Driver". The operation could take a long time but it should work.
