Question about Canon PowerShot A75 Digital Camera
I received a gift from my father-in-law when I was in Japan. He gave me his Canon PowerShot S30...but I don't think he gave me the CD discs that will allow me to download the images.
I also use Picasa to manage my photos, but I cannot figure out how to get the images off the memory card into my computer.
Are there any on-line files that I can get that will substitute for what is on the CD?
You don't need any special software.
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, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

is the camera being recognised by your computer, and have you checked your camera settings and that your memory card doesn't have the lock switch locked so that you can't take images off of the card?

Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:
You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:
Finally, after (and only after) you've recovered all your photos, format the card in your camera. Use "Full" or "Low Level" format, and NOT "Quick" format or "Erase Card". A full format will permanently erase all photos on the camera. But it should also correct this problem from reoccurring.

have opened my camera. (it was useless anyway, right?) GUess what I found: in the lens-assembly there is a ribbon cable that controls the two solenoids, one of the shutter, one of the diafragm (or what it's called). This one is broken, the electric circuits are discontinued and so there is no control. It seems to be a design error since it broke exactly where the ribbon bends at 180 degrees almost with no place for a loop most of the focussing time. Can anyone find out where to find a NEW replacement ribbon cable?

If your computer has a SD card reader, you might be better off putting your memory card into your computer and just copying the data.
Have you made sure your iPhoto is up to date? Perhaps a new update caused this problem.. Maybe you should try an older version of the software. Also, you might want to try other software. (I think you are on a mac?), you might want to try the software that came with the camera, if it works on your computer.
