    Hi,

    I'm having the same problem: if I connect my camera (Cannon Ixus 55) to the computer, he's giving me this error message:



    "Cannot dedect camera"
    "Check connection to camera, then retry"



    I tried already to connect it to different USB ports but the same error message is appearing. I also tried to uninstall and re-install the software but that didn't solved the problem neither.

    Does someone knows how to solve this? - Thx

First thing to do here is to try connecting the camera on a different USB port on the computer if its a tower connect the camera on the back USB port of it, if still not detected try connecting the camera on another computer and check if it will be detected , If still not detected the problem here can be with the USB cable that you're using so better try a different USB cable...

Hope that helps............

Canon G12 does not connect to USB cable, gives error E41


Try NOT connecting your camera to your 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 any photo cataloging program.

Have windows vista on new computer, no longer have CD ROm for camera. I am unable to access the software when I connect it through USB port???


The camera should be detected as a drive when the camera is connected via USB. Does it? You should be able to connect and copy your photos straight out like a USB drive.
