Question about Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Will not download to my PC

I have been using this camera and downloading to my PC for about 5 months now. Earlier this week I tried to take a short movie for the first time. Worked great, and I was able to e-mail it. Today, I tried to download 5 new photos to my PC, just as before, but this time the computer recognizes the camera, but says there are no images available. I can see the 5 photos on the camera viewer, so I know they are there. Can't find any help in the owners manual.

Close the camera using the 'Off' button. Dissconnect it from the computer. When the camera is turned off, connect it back to the computer, wait for the computer to respond and then you'll have the pictures available. Remember - the camera should be turned off.

I bought the Vivitar vivicam 5022 Digital Camera for my doughter at Christmas time. The Image manager software installation cd was damaged. I have been fighting with the customer service dept. For almost 4...

You can download the Vivitar software here.
You don't need the Vivitar software to use your camera. 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.
Here's the corporate contact information.

Try using a separate card reader to download your pictures to a folder you create on your desktop.

The camera can not download pictures in pc

Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.

The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards

I received a finepix S1000fd camera for Christmas.

Sounds as if you deleted the pics after you downloaded them the 1st time.Try taking the memory card out of your camera then placing it back in the camera again. Then try to download your pictures. If this does not work then you must have deleted them when you downloaded them last week.

Downloading to computer

Hmm perhaps the USB Cable has dust in it. Have you tried blowing into the ends to clear any dust?

Try uninstalling the program and then install the earlier version via the CD that came with the camera. If your computer has a built in SD reader, you could use the drag and drop method of transferring your photos as I find that is the easiest and hassle-free way.

I sent my camera back to casio with original reciept and they fixed it and returned it within 14 days. I was really shocked at the turn around time. Just call casio's 800 number and get the information you need.
