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...

1. Forget about getting the computer to recognize the camera. Do what the pros do...use a card reader instead of the camera and download to a folder you create on the desktop. 2. Sorry, but "format" completely erases the card with no hope of retrieval. typrice_192.jpg

When I try to download pictures onto my computer, the camera shuts down and E 41, comes up on a black screen. I have tried to download the photos on a few computers, and have had no trouble downloading...


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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

How to download pictures from phone


It depends on the kind of phone, but if the phone has a built in camera (which....of course yours does if you want to download the pictures from it.) typically you can just plug it into your computer using a USB cable (it may have been provided with your phone, or it may be an additional accessory at a cost)

From there your computer should install an appropriate driver and your phone camera will show up under your drives or as a camera in Windows (Or MAC OSX too) and you can just copy and paste or drag and drop the photos on to your computer.

If you have trouble, you may need to check your phone manufacturer's support site to see if there are USB drivers that you need to download and install for your computer to recognize your phone.

The old software may not be compatible with the new operating system in your new mac. You could always use a separate card reader to download your pics...works without special software.

Why my skype cant see my writing in mac


Have you tried trashing the version you have & re downloading the most recent version from the Skype website?
If this is the only application that's giving you this kind of trouble, its most likely the app.
Locate Skype in the Applications folder, drag it to the trash & empty the trash. You can download the latest Skype version here:

(don't forget to restart your mac) ;)
