Question about Canon PowerShot SX10 IS Digital Camera
When trying to transfer pictures from my camera to laptop, a "communication error" comes up on my camera. I have transferred pictures before and this never happened at all. I tried to change the cord too but it didn't help.
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, such as Picasa.

Have you got space on your computer to save the pics? 41 is not a 'regular' number in computing... what make and model of PC? What operating system are you using?

Find out where "Canon Camera Window" points to for its default pictures Folder and change that path or create a Folder in the location where it is pointing to ...
It seems to be directing the pictures to a non-existing Folder !

SOURCE: I get a communication error
There can be a number of reasons why it is happening. First of all, you will need to check if the driver of the Camera is properly installed. Communication errors occur when the computer is not properly synced with the system. That maybe because of the wire that you are using to connect them. Check the ports of the wire that they are firmly in place.
