USB question

528 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  David_G17
I have a digital camera that uses a usp connector. Can I connect and disconnect this to the computer without powering down the computer? Will it damage either the camera or the computer?

Edit to add: Never mind, I just looked up hot swapping. I had forgotten about that and usb devices.

fwiw, yeah, it's fine.

the only time you'll have a problem is if the system is still writing to the camera when you unplug it.

even then, you could format the camera's media (you'd lose the pics though).
