Try 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.

I had the same problem and managed to fix it by simply upgrading zoom browser to the latest version ( try the canon website)

SOURCE: My XT will not connect to Vista.

I had same problem. I tried the Canon customer support and got similar advice Muhammed gave, along with several additional steps to try. None of them worked. The only thing that worked was the above suggestion of setting the camera itself to the PTP for the communication setting of the menu.

It's too bad you have do do this work around, it does not allow for the same level of control as the pc communication setting.

Hello. You need to probably reinstall the drivers. but first you have to remove the drivers that are all ready installed. first unplug your usb cord. then to remove the drivers allready installed,, on your computer, press start, then when the box open's up, then right click on computer. another box will open up. then left click at the bottom of that box on properties. another box will open up, then click on device manager. after you click on device manager another box will open up with all your devices. look for the previous camera you had installed. it might be under imaging devices. once you locate that, then right click on it. then choose uninstall. Make sure you have your new software loaded in your cd/dvd rom drive. after it is done uninstalling, just restart your computer. at the bottom right of your screen, it should say, found new device, it will ask you from where do you want to load the new drivers for it. click on the drive that contains the software. it then will load your new drivers up. It then should communicate with your camera. Hope this helps. Ron

I have the same issue with Canon model FS10
The only thing I could find was a MOD converter

It does cost $29 but you can try before you buy and it worked for me.

Why won't mu usb cord work for downloading pictures


Here is one possible solution. Some devices require that you use the USB cable that came with the device. Other USB cords won't work. This happened on a Nexus tablet I bought recently. When I tried to charge it with another USB cord, nothing happened. I had to use the exact USB cord that came with the tablet, even though both cords looked identical.

Once you get the camera working again by the "shuffling technique", don't connect it to the computer again. Instead, purchase an inexpensive card reader and use it to download pictures from now on. typrice_31.jpg

Hi, I dropped my A650 and the case is dented although the camera works fine. Can I buy and fit a new case? It's dented around the flash. Thanks


No, you would have to send the product to Canon for repairs, and it would most likely be cheaper to just buy a new camera. I hope this helps!

Dropped the Powershot A630 camera - still works (LUCKY). However, need to use rubbers bands to secure the battery cover as front cover latch will not fasten (tab broke). Bought front cover and need...


So get ready with your screw driver.

I am posting a link below... will give you an idea of how to disassemble a A650... The assembly will of course be in the reverse direction.
Keep the screw carefully... You will only need to understand a part of the whole process.

Wide lines and dark shadows on some pictures


There was an issue with some of the A650 IS cameras that bright light or sunshine could sometimes enter the case and create such symptoms as you're describing:

http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=183&modelid=15658&keycode=2112&id=39151

Although your camera is not an A650, recommend contacting Canon, especially if your camera is less than a year old, to have it repaired under warranty service. Even if older, recommend contacting Canon anyways to argue free repair if your symptoms match that of the above link. Call 1-800-OK-CANON.
