When I try to upload photos to pc the camera switches off and pc says cannot connect to camera, despite it working numerous times before. I have tried on both my pc's to no avail. When I take the USB cord out the camera switches itself back on and I can still take photos so the problem only seems to be with uploading...any suggestions?? Thanks!

Re: CANON IXUS 75 Cannot upload photos to pc anymore!
OK, I'VE GOT ONE IDEA THAT MIGHT WORK. IT'S WORTH A TRY. DO THIS. TURN YOUR COMPUTER OFF> CONNECT YOUR CAMERA>TURN THE CAMERA ON>THEN, TURN YOUR COMPUTER ON AND SEE IF YOUR COMPUTER WILL RECOGNIZE IT THEN. THIS SHOULD CAUSE THE COMPUTER TO RECOGNIZE THE CAMERA. GOOD LUCK AND I HOPE THIS WORKS! IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO ARCLIGHT1217.

A raw image is an uncompressed format your camera takes the picture in. Usually it gets transferred from the camera into a .jpg compressed format to your computer (which simplifies everything and is able to be viewed by anything like photo viewers).
I would search for a canon IXUs 75 driver for your computer, and turn your camera 'on' plugged in with your USB using a standard computer photoviewer program to see if it has a live mode?
Try doing the following to see if you can isolate the problem:
- Clean the metal contacts on the card with a soft cloth - Reformat the card - Try connecting the camera to the computer with a different cable - Try putting the card in a card reader and copying the files from there - Check if the photos are displayed correctly on the camera - Try copying the photos to another computer - Try copying the photos without using the software (connect camera - it will show up as an external drive in My Computer, double click on icon and browse to photos)
If none of these work then the camera may be broken.
