Default Ricoh RDC-7

I have just found my old Ricoh RDC-7 which is working and has pictures on it and pictures from 2001 and some on an old lap top which I desperately want. The problem I have is I cannot locate the output cable from the RDC-7 to usb. It seems to be some sort of Ricoh Generic connection. Ricoh have been no help just saying the Camera is obsolete. I am living on a small Greek island so access to Camera stores is limited to say the least. Anyone got any idea where I might locate this cable? Chris.

There have been a few different types of USB connectors for cameras, but most use the USB mini which is recognizable by the 'keystone' shape. Others, such as Minolta, used a proprietary connector.

It may be difficult to find a reader for SmartMedia cards these days, and you may have to look at the used marketplaces.
Good luck.

Just in case you dont have your manual here is a link to a pdf file. It shows the cable(s) you need to either show the files on your tv, or transfer to computer. It has an old RS232 port which is obsolete. Good luck.

G'day all

Thankx Bynx for that PDF - yes that cable today would be a museum piece
However, Chris ... I have several 6-in-1 card readers in use and each has a slot labelled "SM" for this old-style Smart Media card. Each card reader uses a regular USB port to communicate to the computer

At this stage I suggest that you wander around the shops and collect one of these $15 devices and go from there

Phil
