Try 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.

Could you see your pictures on camera's screen? Did you changed your computer's operation system? Try to see your pictures on your computer while using a card reader. Let me know if you will need for any further assistance. Good luck!

SOURCE: Blank black screen for my canon powershot S1 IS digital camera

This is a common problem with S1 IS and it is caused by faulty CCD sensor. Note that you can playback captured images without any problem but in capture mode all you get is blank screen. Will have to go to Canon but note that Canon repairs these models free of charge when it is the CCD sensor that stops working.

SOURCE: driver update problem for digital camera

In order to get rid of the error, you have uninstall the driver, update your operating system with updates from Microsoft (see below for instructions) and follow these suggestions:

  1. Best method, copy the photos to the computer by connecting a card reader to the computer and plug the SD card into the card reader and transfer using your favorite software (like Picasa) or through My Computer.
  2. Drivers are not required for the A400 and Windows XP. So you can plug in the camera, without drivers and it should work. This appears to be the one that's not working, You need to un-install the drivers and either reinstall, try updated drivers from the links below, or don't use the drivers.
This information is in the manual on page 96. See this link for the manual.

See this link for details about the WIA driver.

About the error "driver update failed" rea

I personally have stopped altogether trying to get the drivers and software installed because they can cause more problems. I just transfer using a card reader.

If you want to use the software that comes with the A400, it's best to install ZoomBrowser, then you will need to follow to this link to get the update to this software.

Once this is done, reboot your machine to make sure the system is then up-to-date.

Make sure you have also updated your machine with Windows Updates. This is done by opening Internet Explorer and clicking on Tools | Windows Updates. Follow the links at their site to update your machine.

I have a canon powershot s1 is, when i turn it on it tells me that there is no memory card......how do i fix this?


The memory card in the camera may be missing, failing, locked (see if the lock slider is in the wrong position), or not formatted properly. Try removing the card and verifying that another device (camera, laptop, desktop, card reader, printer, etc) can read it.

If its fine in other devices, copy off any pictures that are important, and format it. That might resolve the issue.

Another quick test is to see if the camera will read another card.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful, thanks.

Try setting your camera to mass storage instead ptp.
Reinstall the software of canon.Also see if the camera is in transfer mode rather in shooting mode.
Check if your card is accidently locked somehow.
Always try to load original driver cd and software that came with the camera.
