Question about Canon PowerShot S400 / IXUS 400 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Download to computer

The camera is not downloading to my Mac. I have not had trouble in the past. Tried restarting computer, no help. Reentered the "solution disk" and showed everything still installed. Replaced battery, no help. Camera is set correctly and displays last picture taken while set to download. Ususally downloads auto matically to iPhoto. Set to iPhoto to which it has always downloaded, but still nothing happens now. Help!

    Cannot download photos when this has worked dozens of times in the past. iPhoto doesn't recognize that it is a camera, and when i try to download using menus, it says it is an unrecognizable format...However, my A540 works fine...

What device wrote the files to the card? Was it a digital still camera, video camera etc.

Also, have you tried to repair the disk using CHKDSK (Windows PC) or Disk Utility (Mac)

My Mac Book will not work i plug in the power cord and turn it on you can hear the fan going but nothing will turn on and i leave it alone and the fan will go on forever without any progress. help please


Have your Mac OS disc handy, start your computer, as it starts, press and hold the power button, this will cause the mac to shut off. Then push the button again, while it is starting push your os disc in the drive. The goal is to get the computer to load the OS disc so you can access the Disk Utility program from the file menu.
If you're having trouble getting past the fan still, restart while holding the commnad, option, p and r keys together. Continue to hold these down until you hear the start up chime. keep holding and let it do this twice. This is "zapping" thie PRAM ... Then start it again... These should help...

Wont start up completly


there is the single user start-up, which you were thinking of. There is also a safe-boot for macs.

To start up into Safe Mode (to Safe Boot), do this:

1. Be sure the computer is shut down.
2. Press the power button.
3. Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone but not before.
4. Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).

During startup in Mac OS X 10.4 or later, you will see "Safe Boot" on the login window, which appears even if you normally log in automatically.

During startup in Mac OS X 10.2 through 10.3.9, you will see "Safe Boot" on the Mac OS X startup screen.

To leave Safe Mode in any version of Mac OS X, restart the computer normally, without holding any keys during startup.

TRANSFERRING RECORDED IMAGES AND VIDEOS FROM YOUR VPCT700 DIGITAL CAMERA TO YOUR COMPUTER

Connecting the Camera to Your Computer
1. Connect one end of the USB cable to the PC/AV terminal of the camera.
2. Connect the other end of the USB cable to an available USB port on your computer.
3. Turn on your camera.
-The [USB] screen appears.
4. Select [PC] with the Up and Down Arrow buttons, and press the SET button.
5. From the Windows desktop, double click on “My Computer”.
6. Look for a new “Removable disk” icon. This “Removable disk” is actually the memory card in your camera. Typically, the camera will be assigned drive letter “E” or higher.
7. Double click on the removable disk and locate the DCIM folder.
8. Double click on the DCIM folder to open it to find more folders.
-Your recorded images and video clips will be inside these folders.
-Copy & Paste or Drag-N-Drop image and video files to a folder on your computer.

Mac users: Double-click the “untitled” or “unlabeled” disk drive icon on our desktop. iPhoto may automatically launch.


Downloading images and Video Files
When the camera is turned on and connected to your computer, it is considered to be a disk drive, just like a floppy disk or CD. You can download (transfer) images by copying them from the “Removable disk” (“untitled” or “unlabeled” disk on a Macintosh) to your computer hard drive.

Windows
Open the “removable disk” and subsequent folders by double clicking on them. Your images are inside these folder(s). Select the images that you want, and then choose “Copy” from the “Edit” menu. Open the destination location (folder) and choose “Paste” from the “Edit” menu. You may also drag and drop image files from the camera to a desired location.

Macintosh
Open the “untitled” disk icon, and the destination location on your hard disk. Drag and drop from the camera to the desired destination.

NOTE
- Memory card users may prefer to use a memory card reader (highly Recommended).
- Video playback application is not included with the package. Make sure that video playback application has been installed in your computer.

Start "Disk Utility" and "repair disk permissions on all disks.  Restart the Mac and it should fix.   I don't believe one ever needs to load a driver on a Mac for any card reader.   It should work as plug and play.
Good luck.

Could a photo printer corrupt my camera?


Do you have a memeory card reader? They work a lot faster than cable transfer. Get one if you don't, for about $10 or so, or borrow one to test your card. Then see if your memory card (the "disk") displays your pictures onto the computer through the card reader. If it does, your friend might have physically damaged the USB cable connector on the camera or the card socket inside the battery compartment (or, of course, you might have done so yourself somehow). As long as you have the card reader you'll still be able to transfer images. If the pictures don't show up on the card reader, it's more likely the card itself was damaged, though you say you tried another card. If you've already downloaded the pictures, try reformatting the card (which will erase everything) and then give it another shot.
