Question about Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unable to install and upload for windows Millennium edition

Hi,

I recently had to revert to my old computer when the screen on my toshiba laptop cracked. I have a Canon PowerShot a470 and when I first connected the camera to the computer the computer automatically located the software for it but then I do not know what happened. I am not sure if the computer froze or it did not install properly or even if my computer is too old for the camera and software. I tried all of the troubleshooting tiips included with the installation cd. Autorun will not work and when I click on the setup or install files nothing happens. I also get this message: winsta.dll is linked to missing export NTDLL.DLL: RtiLeaveCriticalSection. I don't know what else I can do so I would appreciate some help.

Thanks.

Kristin

Consider 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.

first thing, you have to have the camera in playback (The way to view images on the camera) ((If the lens goes out you have i wrong))
If you have XP / Vista it will come up in my computer and you can copy and past images / videos from it that way. Else Scanner n camera wizzard in XP will pull images off

Solve your problem by using a card reader to download your pics to a folder you create on your desktop.

You need to double-click the setup file. It should have an .exe file extension.

Hi, We gave my mum a new tough 3000 Olympus camera and we are unable to download the photos from the camera onto her pc. We have plugged the cord into both the USB port and the camera but nothing...


Hi Fiona

When you connect the camera to your computer with a usb cable if you click on 'start' at the bottom left of your screen and the click 'my computer' .

The window that opens will show all the drives connected to you computer eg your hard drive (usually c: ) and your cd/dvd . If you open the other drives one will have all the pictures in .

Then just select them all by selecting 'edit' then 'select all' at the top left of the open window and then click 'edit' and 'cut '.

If you then open My documents and open the folder 'my pictures' ,then click 'edit' and then 'paste' at the top left of the window all your pictures will be copied to that folder.

Just to make it easier the camera will have come with a cd ,if you put that in the cd drive it will offer to install software ,if you accept and install it every time you plug the camera into the computer it will start the program and copy the pictures automatically.

Hope this helped

I am unable to upload my pictures to my computer. We recently had several viruses on our computer so a lot of things got cleared off in the process of fixing it. Now I cant upload my pics from my camera.


Reinstall the Nikon software and drivers. If those were removed in the de-virusing of your computer that will fix the problem. If not make sure the USB ports are installed and configured.

You should be upload pictures using a USB cable even if you do not have the additional sofware. Once you plugged in your camera, it may take a few minutes for the computer to register a new device and you should be able to view pictures using the Vista popup or in my computer from the "new device"

Installation of Nikon view software in laptop having windows vista


hi there
the software is not compatible with vista and as the camera is around 5 years old, i doubt nikon will release a patch for it. that said you don't need that software anyway, just plug your camera in via the usb lead switch it on , click on my computer, find your camera, click on it and copy the pictures to where you want. you can then use virtualy any software to view and edit them. if you go to the freesoftware4all website they have some usefull free programmes you could use.
hope this helps

You do not need software to upload images to your computer. Simply plug the camera in and the Computer will show it as a new drive in 'My Computer' Windows will put a screen up asking where you want the images placed- just follow the prompts to 'My pictures' or where ever else you want them to go. If you are minus editing software- then do a Google for Picasa' the free one. My advise for all digi camera owners is leave the disc in the box and let Windows do the work.
