    Please tell me what you have tried. (other than just plugging it in to your computer.) And please inform me on what type, and model of camera you have. Also, did you have to install any software when you got the camera?

Well, i'm guessing it's safe to assume that you are plugging it into a USB port on your computer. Most computers will have two or more of these ports on the computer. 1st, try using a different USB port. Make sure that when you connect your camera, that it is turned off. Once connected, turn your camera on. If nothing happens, turn it of but keep the camera connected and reboot your computer. Sometimes it will automatically read what you have stored on your camera. If none of that works for you, i'll look up some places that you could find software compatable with your Canon.
Let me know!

Photos wont down load to my computer


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 such as Picasa.
