If the camera is still under warranty, make sure you send it to be fixed before the warranty runs out. When they fix this problem they will also clean and service your camera, so it's a good idea to get it fixed (under warranty). But there's no reason to worry about this affecting any other operation in your camera. I never use the cable to transfer photos - I always take the memory card out of the camera and transfer using a card reader.

How do I upload my most recent photos from my Canon Power Shot A 3100 from a memory card that has at least 300 pictures on it without uploading all of them?

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.

40d won't read or format any memory card that previously could read

Hello =) ^^

  • Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
  • 2 Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
  • 3 Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
  • 4 In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
  • 5 Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
  • 6 Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

    Can't transfer images from my canon 40d to

    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.

    My canon eos 40D says busy when trying to upload...

    i often find with SLRs (and other proprietary cameras) its far safer to use a card reader.

    Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.

    The usb plug on my Canon 40d broke off.

    Don't do it. You will more than likely get dust on the sensor and then you've got a MUCH bigger problem. Take it to have it removed at a camera shop. Then while you're their get a USB card reader for your memory card. It's so much faster and you'll wish you'd got one long ago.

    Communication error when uploading pictures on computer

    I had the same problem. My problem was that there were more than 1,000 images stored on the memory card. Once I deleted some of the images from the camera memory card, I was able to download pictures again.
