Question about Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
When i try to download pics it keeps saying the usb port is not regonized.
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 any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

I tend to NOT use the cables that come with my cameras. They are slow, and often incompatible with whatever operating system or other software you have online.
I would simply take out the camera's memory card (XD or SD or whatever it may be,) and buy a $10 USB card reader for that chip format. It's faster, simpler, better, and you don't have to deal with the camera's proprietary software. Hope this helps!
