Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

My Canon SD 870 Camera came with a free SD card. Everything seems fine with the card until I try to download the pictures to my computer. I used the camera to format the card after the first time I had problems. I assumed this would fix it but it has happened again. I don't have problems with my other memory cards, just the one this camera came with. I can view the most recent pictures using the camera but how do I transfer the pictures to my computer? Thanks.

    I transfer pictures for the problematic card and my other cards by attaching the camera to the computer via USB. Then I simply turn on the camera and the Canon software opens and the transfer starts.

How are you transferring pictures with the other cards? Are you using a USB cable and plugging the camera into the PC? If not, how are you doing it. Let me know the answer... I have some suggestions for you.

    So when you use the particular card in question, the Canon software doesn't open or it just doesn't copy the pictures?



    BTW, you can xfer the pics manually. Simply plug the camera into the
    PC. Give the OS a second or two to recognize the camera. Then navigate
    to My Computer and choose the removable media for the camera/card. Open
    that folder. Drill down to the folder where the pictures reside (Ex:
    DCIM => CANON119
    ). Click Edit (on the menu bar) => Select All.
    Then click Edit => Copy to Folder. Choose the folder where your
    software normally copies pictures and click Copy. The photos will be
    copied to the folder. Lastly, open your Canon software and edit, etc.
    as normal.

    I hope this helps. If it does, please rate the solution. My goal is FixYa or Helpful, never TFT for IA.

Canon Power Shot SD450 Digital Elph camera started to say "no memory card" when there is Sandisk 2GB in there? What can i do?


2 things the memory card and the recovery of your files.
Your camera was produced in 2005 and in those days only MMC and SD cards could be used. A few years later the SDHC came and 2011 SDXC came. devices are downward compatible. So newer cameras can use also SD cards. But older cameras can't use newer memory cards. Even a SDHC can't be used in your camera. And although I managed to buy a 4GB SD card a few years ago, now they only produce SDHC and SDXC cards. Yes be aware a 1 GB or 2 GB card now ar most of the time SDHC.
Check your card, when it says SDHC, don't try to us it, it won't work.

Then the photos from your parents. It looks we never have taken enough pictures.
When you have old memory cards, please don't use them till you checked if there are still "deleted" pictures on them.
Deleted is most of the time just clearing the pointers to the files. The files in most cases stay on the card.
Try to download some software from this site:
Memory Card Data Recovery
Then run the software, when you have a memory card in a memory card reader and see if it can find "deleted" pictures. Be aware when you use a card with "deleted" pictures, the space that came free, will be used to put new pictures there. SO don't use the cards till you did recover everything to the computer.

There are more free recover program's. I have one form Sandisk, I got it for free with a sands memory card. Login on that site to and see if they still have free program's for Sandisk users.

How do I recover pictures back to my power shot sd card


If your computer has a built in card reader you can put any photo back on the card from your computer by dragging and dropping the file to the drive letter that is your SD card. If you're trying to recover lost photos from a SD card Google "card recovery pro". It's a free program that will read your SD card and restore as many photo's as it can.

"memory full" but SD cards are empty


Not sure if it will be this, but has the SD card got locked by accident? There is a little sliding button on the side of the card, which can be locked to protect the content. My camera shows the card as full if I accidentally lock the card. You can just slide it back again to unlock it. I never noticed the button was there until I accidentally knocked it while loading the card in and out of my PC to transfer the photos.

Can't download pictures from camera to PC


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 use any photo cataloging program, such as Canon ZoomBrowser.

I need to recover accidently erased image files from my sd card for my Canon S2-IS camera


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

I have had my canon s3 for about 3 years now everything has been great until now. I cant seem to upload pictures to any computer now. When I plug in the usb it does not even detect that it is there. I have...


It may need to have cleaned the USB port in your camera. Dust and dirty can cause such failures.

Other reason is that the USB circuitry in the camera's main board is defective.

IF after cleaning the USB port, you have the same problem, a cheap alternative instad on sending the camera to repair, it's to use a SD card reader to download your pictures from the memory card.

Cannot download images from builtin memory


I'M SORRY TO SAY BUT I BELIEVE THAT YOUR ONBOARD MEMORY IS CORRUPT. YOU PROBABLY WON'T BE ABLE TO RECOVER THOSE PICTURES. I THINK YOU NEED TO FORMAT YOUR ONBOARD MEMORY TO GET IT WORKING AGAIN. UNTIL YOU KNOW FOR SURE THAT IT IS WORKING, I WOULD USE A MEMORY CARD. ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE THE LATEST VERSION OF THE CANON SOFTWARE? I PERSONNALLY NEVER USE THE ONBOARD MEMORY BECAUSE I FEEL THAT THERE IS ALWAYS A CHANCE TO LOSE THE IMAGES. I WOULD USE A 4 GIG SD MEMORY CARD THAT WOULD GIVE YOU A VERY LARGE NUMBER OF PICTURES AND THE SAFETY OF BEING ABLE TO REMOVE THE CARD FROM THE CAMERA AND USE A CARD READER OR YOUR COMPUTER IF IT HAS SD SLOTS. I HOPE THIS CLEARS YOUR PROBLEM UP,EVEN IF IT DOESN'T HELP RECOVER YOUR PHOTO'S. I'M SORRY ABOUT THIS. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP,REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217
