Question about Canon PowerShot A700 Digital Camera
This is the first time this has happened. I plugged in my camera to my computer to download the images, and the camera reads as having no images. This despite the fact that when NOT connected to the computer, there are 675 photos on the camera that I can see, scroll through, erase, etc. etc. I have never had this problem before, and am using all the same set-up (computer, camera, cables, software).
I would look at the connection ports. Sometimes dust,dirt gets in there..Try blowing air into the connectors. You can use you mouth breath but a small air compressor works better..But I wouldn't over do it with to much air pressure... My iPhone mic was dirty...No one could hardly hear me...I done this and now they hear me good...Worth a try...It could bent prongs in the port or a bad cable. Good luck.

SOURCE: Unable to download through usb
I had the same problem and realized that my computer wasn't recognizing my camera. I went through my device manager and looked under portable devices, I could see that my camera had an error in its driver, so I right clicked on my camera and uninstalled the driver for my camera, and unplugged and plugged my camera back in. It instantly recognized my camera and reinstalled the driver.

Having same issue as above - I thought it was my cable so I ordered a new one. The camera attempts to 'speak' to the pc - and then the Windows box pops up not recognising the USB installed device....I also uninstalled and reloaded the Canon software (had camera for 18 months and only started this rubbish a month back) - was about to re-laod my entire PC - thankfully I saw it was not only me.
Will send mine in for a Firmware update / service.

Hi and welcome to FixYa.
Sounds like your reading right from the manual. <grin>
Connect the camera to the computer via the usb cable. Set the mode switch to playback and press the power button, then:
on your pc go to Start>All Programs (or Programs)>Canon Utilities and find Canon Window. Double click on it and it should fire the program. Let me know if you have any problems. If not, feel free to rate my solution.

Go get a card reader and transfer your images thru that. That's the only way I ever transfer my images from camera to computer. You can get one relatively inexpensive...that is...if your computer doesn't already have a card slot in it.

It sounds like the locking switch on the side of the SD card is in the "locked" position. Remove the card from the camera and slide the tiny switch on the card to the unlocked position. That should do it.
