Question about Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
Now I can't, when I do as I always did, it say, save folder not found.
On top of that box, it says Camera Window DC
what changed or how do I get it back to transfer these images to computer.
I too had problems with "canon folder not found" when I tried to download my photos from camera to computer. I had been doing this task successfully for over two years. I couldn't understand what was so different. It was so frustrating and having an older brain (nearly 60) and spending almost a day trying to rectify the problem, I seeked help from my daughter as all the solutions didn't help me. She solved my problem after about an hour trying different avenues. This is the solution that worked for me providing you have the solution disk that comes with your camera. I had installed this disk myself several times on the same day but still did not make any difference like I had hoped it would. Now this is how a younger brain works and solves the problem.
Step 1 ; Go to "My Computer", you will see system task. (legt hand side)
Step 2 ; Click on "Add or remove programs"
Step 3 ; Click on "Change or remove programs"
This is where you will find Adobe reader, Internet security, Window driver package, Microsoft and so on. There was or should be 15 canon components.
Step 4; DELETE or remove all canon programs, after all it was the solution disk(that comes with your camera) that put them there.
Step 5; Now reinstall your "Canon Digital Solution Disk" and follow their prompts
Step 6; When this has been done successfully, it will close down the computer and restart itself.
Step 7; Download your photos from your camera to computer and presto it works, it has found the "Lost folder".
I hope this works for you, Joyce

Not sure what happened... BUT I can offer some advice that will keep this headache from ever coming back.
There are basically two EASY ways to copy/move pictures from the memory card to your computer.
1) Attach the cable that *may* have come with your camera to the PC and camera's USB ports.
[Sounds like this is the one you're having trouble with, so let's move on to #2.]
2) Purchase an inexpensive USB card reader. [They sell for around $5-$7.]
2a) Place your memory card in the reader.
2b) Insert the card reader into the USB port on your computer and view the pictures.
Picasa, GIMP and other FREE programs (widely available on the Internet) will allow you to edit the pictures as well.
BTW,if you have a CVS Pharmacy near you, they are offering 50 free printswhen you join their photo club. I don't advocate any business, per se,but just thought I'd add that because you might want to print thepictures as well.
I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution offered. My goal is always FixYa or Helpful, never TFT or IA. Regards,
