This USB Cable for Digilux 1 / 2 / 3 Compact Cameras from Leica enables you to tether your camera to any computer that supports USB 2.0 technology. The cable connects from your camera via the mini-B type USB plug and into the type-A USB port on your PC or MAC computer.
There are three different USB modes supported by various Windows or Mac operating systems, and they are Mass Storage mode, PTP mode, and Remote Control mode. Mass Storage mode is compatible with most operating systems, and allows the computer to recognize the camera as an external hard drive or card reader. PTP Mode can only be used with certain operating systems, such as Windows XP and Mac OS X, or later versions. Remote Control mode allows control of the camera and immediate downloading of pictures to the hard disk from the computer.
When you are done transferring photos, be sure to safely remove the hardware through your operating system, rather than pulling the USB cable out, as you may lose or corrupt image data.
