Program Zoom browser won't download pictures from the camera.

Hi, I have a problem downloading my pictures from my camera to my computer. The camera indicates its connected to the computer. When I try to download the pictures the message comes up no "no camera found." I have a program corel 6 and it will download the pictures, however I like the zoom browser better. Hope you can help me. Thank you

    My G3 camera equipped with a microdrive is no longer recognized by computers (macs or pcs). I got a new connecting cable (assuming that had gone bad) when the problem began and I could still eventually get my macintosh computer to recognize the camera after several attempts. Didn't help. Is it possible that something has gone bad with the microdrive?

Uninstall and reinstall the Zoombrowser. It looks like a driver or something with the program is corrupt. But, first read on before doing anything.

But, before doing the above, check the software and camera configuration. Also check to see that there are no other active programs running in the computer that may be taking presidence over the Canon software and accessing control of the camera's port, thus blocking Canon's software from being able to read the camera.

You can try calling Canon's tech support and ask the question. They will know their product the best.

Microdrive:
A microdrive can fail much easier than a solid state memory card. I have had them fail. Mircodrives are fairly fragile compared to memory cards. Microdrives are mechanical devices. The new generation of memory cards are excellent.

I have an old digital camera with an IBM 1 GB microdrive. The present drive still works! It was terribly expensive when I bought it about 4 years ago. I am now using a 2 GB solid state memory card. I found it to be superior to the old microdrive.

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 ( http://picasa.google.com ).

This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries. This method also has the advantage of working for any camera (at least as long as the camera uses a memory card compatible with the reader).

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.
