PowerShot S5 IS, Trying to download pics and I get "Communications Error". Never had this before. Scottie

    Same problem. Plugged in my Canon, and got 'Communications Error' for the first time. 


    I have an 8GB card, though, and only 5 free GB on my hard drive. I don't think I took 5GB+ worth of new pictures, but maybe that's an issue for me?

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.

I downloaded all images to my computer on my sd card. The pictures show up in my "my pictures" folder on my computer, but not in the canon zoombrowser ex program. It will not let me view any...


You can just copy and paste the pics into zoombrowser. Or in the menu at the top of the zoombrowser page under "file" click on open and then select your pics from the choices given.

No Memory Card message on Canon S5 IS


There are several possible causes for "memory card locked", "memory card error", or "no memory card". Some include trying to use of a 4GB SDHC card with an older camera made before SDHC format came out. Others include problems with the switch on the side of the card, and the switch internal to the camera. The problem may also arise from simple formatting problems if the card has never been formatted in the camera (note that this will also erase the card). Troubleshooting tips for this problem may be found at this link.
