Your camera is designed to be a source of pictures, not a destination. If you want to copy pictures to a memory card, you need to use a card reader and not a camera.

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 carecenter@cits.canon.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

SOURCE: CANON POWERSHOT A530 LOW BATTERY READING

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.

Regards
John

SOURCE: Can I export photos from iPhoto back into the Canon G9 PowerShot?

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.

How do you import pictures onto a macbook?


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 iPhoto or Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Cannot download pictures


Try this...use a separate card reader. When it appears on your desktop as "no name"...double-click on it and select and drag and drop the files into a folder you create on your desktop. From there, it's easy to get them into iphoto.

Can't download large movie files to iphoto : (


i found the answer to my own question above and thought i'd share.

rather than iphoto, you can use "image capture," which is software that comes standard with the mac.

-Turn on your camera, and connect it to your computer with the cable that came with it.
-Close iPhoto if it opens automatically. Open Image Capture (Applications folder).
-Click Download Some to choose specific items to transfer, or click Download All to transfer all items.
If you click Download Some, choose the items to transfer, and click Download.

By default, Image Capture transfers still images to your Pictures folder, video files to your Movies folder, and music files to your Music folder. To choose another folder, choose Other from the Download To pop-up menu, then click Download Some or Download All.

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.

Transferring video from a digital camera


I had a similar problem with my Canon Elura 100 camcorder when I tried to transfer the video. It turned out that my computer has some codex installed that was conflicting with the download of the video. So I went to another computer that I was sure had no codex files installed, and had no problem downloading the videos.
