Communication error between camera and computer

I have the canon Powershot SD700 IS digital elph and had no problems downloading photos to my laptop - now all of a sudden I am getting a communication error when trying to download new photos.

I have downloaded a new virus protection program and that's the only thing that I can think that may be causing this!!
Any suggestions????

Try deleting a few hundred pics....I had about 3039...deleted about 200, and now the error went away, able to upload pics from the camera to computer.....possibly 3000 is the maximum number of pics the Camera Window software will allow ?

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.

Hi there! I have a Canon PowerShot SD700 is. I have bought a Sandisk 8 GB. My camera cannot read it. It says: Memory Card Error. What can I do about it? Many thanks for your help


The SD700 works with MMC and SD cards. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card. While it fits into the slot, it is electronically incompatible and will not work. You need to use SD cards, which max out at 2GB.

If you cannot format the memory card using the format function of the camera, please connect the camera to your computer and use the computer to access your memory card and format fromt the computer.

Alternatively you can also use a memory card reader and connect the memory card to your reader and connect it inturn to your computer and format it from the computer

You have to load up your pictures onto your hard drive. Do you have any software to reduce the size of your pictures or change the resolution of them?
