Just posting this for a friend, needs some help recovering some photos from a camera, and to do that we need to make the computer think that the camera is a physical drive, not a removable one because the recovery program wont read removable drives.

I’m Using Digital Photo Recovery because I accidentally deleted some photos off my camera, the camera is connected through USB and uses a compact flash card.  The program can only detect my physical memory from the computer and my built in card reader but not from the USB port. Is there anyway I can convert the external camera into a physical drive, or just trick the computer into thinking it's physical memory, Great thanks if you can help me.

He could get a CF card reader, those show up as removable disks and you can access them through a drive letter.

Well not too many shops are open today that would sell them :/. Thanks anyway.
We are just after a quick fix, just 'tricking' the computer into thinking the camera is a storage drive.

What OS are you running? Because if you have an old Windows 98 computer lying around, it automatically assigns digital cameras a drive letter if the drivers are installed.

I'm pretty sure the OP either got his problem sorted or it isn't an issue anymore. This thread is from 2004. ;)
