How do i get photos off the phone camera to my pc [xp]

Couple of ways.

One option is to go to the manufacturer's website and download the Suite. What make is it anyway?
Once the suite is installed you can then perform several tasks, like transfering photos from and to your phone.

another option is to get a bluetooth adapter and have it paired with your phone. you can then send files through it.

another is download Dropbox into your phone and register a new account. Once this is done, you can then upload photos to dropbox. Then on your pc, head over to and login. All your uploaded photos will be there.

Hope this helps.

When I try to download pictures from my Canon A520 camera to my computer, I get a message saying the computer can't detect my camera. The software is loaded. The camera is in play mode. In the past I...

Most likely the software has corrupted. To eliminate this possibility, uninstall the software, reboot your computer and then reinstall it.

If this fails then please add a comment and we'll go through further options.

One other option is to simply use an external memory card reader and bypass the Canon software altogether. You'll also find that uploads are far quicker using this method.

How do i upload pictured to my computer

Use the connecting cord provided along and connect. The hardware -camera- will be detected on your PC, install and open to see the files/photos and copy or transfer. Also you can directly use your memory card to be downloaded if your PC/Laptop has the card reader.This can be done directly for transfering the photos. Hope this helps. Good day

Can't upload photos with Canon Powershot A520

If the other solutions didn't work for you, you can always buy a memory card reader for around $30... These plug into your computer, and then you remove the memory card from your camera, and it clicks into the reader. Or your comptuer, if it was made in the last year or 2, may have an SD card reader built in...

Uploading images

I have the same camera, and the same issue. After a lot of research I have come to the conclusion the A520 will not allow this.

Can't load photos to computer

Try using Windows Explorer or a similar folder and file locating program to find the camera. In Explorer, choose My Computer and look down the list that opens. If your camera is "seen" by the computer, it will appear in the list and you should be able to retrieve the pictures from there, just like finding and opening other folders and files. If not, the problem is most likely on the camera or cable, not the software or computer.
