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?

    Also, check to see whether the camera is in PTP or Disk Drive mode. Try switching it from one to the other and see if that helps the PC recognise the device.

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.

The keys typed are not the letters coming up

The SX 4000 is a "Daisy Wheel" printer. A plastic Wheel with the letters embossed on them spin via the input of the keyboard. I would suggest that your Daisy Wheel mhas slipped its index, presenting a offset letter., or the wheel is on inproper, but I do not see how it could happen, short of forcing it on. You may have to buy another Daisy Wheel, if that one is broken at the hub. See:

Can't transfer video from dc100 dvd to conventional dvd

Are you trying to transfer the video to a computer to then burn to a dvd? Make sure before you put the disc in any other device, that the disc is finalized.

Disk is not readable by the computer.

Try a different "data" cable between your computer and the external disk-drive.

Try connecting the unit to a different computer.
If it fails there, then the unit itself has a problem:
* the USB-to-disk-drive adapter (inside the casing) has failed;
* the disk-drive (inside the casing) has failed.

Disassemble the external unit, and remove the disk-drive. Connect it as a "slave" disk-drive in some Apple Computer, to see if the data on the disk-drive can still be accessed.

Check with LACIE, to see if their "warranty" is still valid, or if it has expired.
