1) Make sure the camera's power control is in the off position. 2) Switch on your computer. Important: For PCs running on Windows 98 SE only, a separate driver has to be installed before hooking up the KEY camera with your PC. Insert the installation CD into the CD-ROM drive. The auto-run program on the CD runs and installs the driver automatically. 3) Plug your KEY camera securely into the USB port of your PC. (The USB port of your PC must be able to support high power device. For Mac users, please connect the camera to the USB port on the main unit instead of the keyboard.) 4) The camera beeps at the start of battery charging. The green POWER light then blinks continuously indicating that the camera is charging up. Charging takes approximately 3 hours to completely charge up the camera. Important: You need to keep your computer switched on throughout the charging of your camera.
