Question about Canon PowerShot A530 Digital Camera
I would like to transfer files from iPhoto back to the camera so that I can add them to a digital photo frame. Can this be done? I have a Canon Powershot A530.
To view the pictures on the computer, try removing the card from the battery compartment and put it in a card reader connected to your computer.

Definitely sounds like you have a bad CCD. There is good news for you though. Canon recognized this particular model's CCD as faulty, and it is under recall! This means they will repair or replace your camera free of charge.
From Canon website: "U.S. residents are kindly directed to contact the Canon Customer Support Center for further assistance at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST). Alternatively, if electronic support is preferred, please send your email to email@example.com"
Explain to them you have a Canon PowerShot A75 digital camera with a bad CCD and you were looking to get it serviced by them under the recall.
Good luck from darntoothysam.com

We had the same problem and it was so very frustrating. We sent the Camera back for assesment and repair only to be told there was nothing wrong with it. The solution was so simple we felt like real dummies.
All you have to do is use Energizer Lithium Batteries, since we started using them we have not had a problem with Batteries going flat or that annoying Battery indicator flashing.

No, you can't.
You only can transfer the pictures back to the camera if the pictures were taken by the same model cameras, plus the pictures were not modified.

SOURCE: iPhoto will not import some
It sounds like the camera is being detected, and reading some info about the pictures, but can't download them. Make sure the memory card's contacts are clean (use a qtip and 90% isopropyl alcohol or purer).
The contacts inside the camera should be checked also, and ensured they're clean. Also make sure none of them are bent, or misaligned.
Memory cards can be erased or formatted, and reused. If the computer will detect it as a hard drive, you can drag or move the pics to a folder on your computer. I don't have a mac, so I'm not sure how that system works. There's a chance that some pics on the card are corrupt for some reason....if the camera was unconnected while pictures were in the middle of being transferred, so the data could be corrupt. If you have access to another computer, try to download the pictures to it.
Pick the format option in the camera menu to erase the pics, and you'll be ble to reuse it.
There is a chance the card is just bad, but they rarely just go bad.
That's all I can think of...hope it helps.
