Re: my canon isnt readable on computers

Is the camera able to take photos? Can you take the memory card out of the camera and read it directly into your PC with a card reader?

Computer doesnt recognize my camera when I connect it


You need to make sure that you've got the latest drivers for your camera. Google will be able to help you here.

Then you're going to want to make sure the camera is switched on, and you have a cable attached to the computer.

Finally, you can always call Canon Support for advanced troubleshooting and support.

My Canon SLR screen display's "No card" eventhough

Your card needs to be formatted to the camera. Once the memory card is opened on a computer to look at or download the pictures the card needs to be formatted to the camera it is going to be used in so the camera and card and properly communicate between each other.

My canon powershot SD280 sound wont work.. The sound turn on Okay, but the Video doesnt = It DID work and i dont know what happen to it !

hey boss- just figured this one out.

while the video is playing, you can increase the volume by pressing the button above the Func. Set center button and decrease the volume by pressing the button below the Func. Set button. Think we both accidentally turned the volume all the way down.

Too bad you can't tell this by going to the volume menu! Would have been nice to know I was still recording audio while shooting video. Hope this helps!

Camera window keeps telling me that the camera is not detected

How about try these again

1- Uninstall all of the software related to Canon.
2- Install the drivers for your Canon ONLY.
3- After installing the drivers, plug your camera to a different USB port. (test your USB is working okay by connecting another USB device)
5- The drivers for your camera will be installed.
6- After it is finished, click start, then computer. Now you should have one Icon starting with canon.....
If you see this icon, double click on it. You will find one or more folders which contain the pictures stored in your camera. You may now download, delete Etc.

You either have not done above steps correctly, or your cable or your USB port is bad.

Good Luck!!!!!!

Transferring of pictures

you can just plug the camer to the computer using the USB cable it came with or any USB cable that will fit.

once connected your computer will install the needed files, just wait until it says done or "installed and ready to use".

after that go to "my computer" then look for an item there that has a camera name or a "removable storage", double-click on it.

usually the images will be in a folder that says DCIM

-i have a Canon A460, so it should be the same folder.

if you have other questions just lemme know okay...

Hey! Mine doesnt either. Actually it works on my computer at work, but neither of my home computers. You have to use the ZoomBrowser CD it came with and install it on your computer. Its a pain...but its the only choice I had. Once you have the program on your computer it works like a charm!

Help! Can't Read CD300 CD's on MAC.

wow did you get an amazing deal on the camera? lol... to buy it with nothing? check sony's website, they must have a link to download the drivers for the mac. I presume you'd need to download something to be able to read sony formatted disks on a mac.
