Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon Not recongized by Computer

Im using Vista and my Canon Power Shot SD 790 will not recognize my camera so I cannot load my pictures onto my computer. I have tried re-installing the software several times but it does not seem to work.

Any suggestions? I was able to download pictures to the computer just 2 weeks ago. Since then I've connected a wireless Lynksis router and now neither my computer or laptop recognize the camera. I've reinstalled everything I can think of and I don't know what else to do. BTW, I have tried different cords, different ports all to no avail.

    Actually it was a pretty dumb mistake on my part. Other Canon cameras have no problem recognizing the camera in any mode, yet the SD1000 requires that the camera be set to review mode, otherwise it won't be recognized by the driver. Sorry for the inconvienence, but thanks for the quick response.

Try to change the USB connection type in the camera menu. There are several types like Mass storage, Pict. bridge, and the one you need is most likely PTP. Anyway, try all of those and maybe it will work. That is the most common problem when connecting cameras to Vista based systems.

How do I recover pictures back to my power shot sd card


If your computer has a built in card reader you can put any photo back on the card from your computer by dragging and dropping the file to the drive letter that is your SD card. If you're trying to recover lost photos from a SD card Google "card recovery pro". It's a free program that will read your SD card and restore as many photo's as it can.

Many times the older version drivers will work as new released operating systems try to be backwards compatible with software. Try loading the XP software or search the Canon website for updated software for your model.

Window Vista not recognizing my Canon Power Shot A540 to download


I recommend getting a USB card reader for your memory card.

You should make sure that the camera is on for the transfer. If that doesn't work, try another USB input.

How to use power shot 790 to load onto my computer


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

SD800 no longer recognized!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Best solution for SDHC is a high speed card reader.
One that hooks up via Firewire.
Some of the compatible cameras with the higher capacity, faster cards are not recognized when connected to the computer... great work around and downloads are quicker too.
