Question about Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera
My computer was automatically reading the photos from my camera but now it is saying that the computer cannot read my device. can someone please help 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.

Most modern Digital Cameras dont actually stamp the image anymore. the data is recorded in "metadata" in the image file. But if you use the ZoomBrowser software that came with your camera to download images you can do the following:
1. Adding a Time Stamp to a Printed Photo:
After selecting Print, check the box(es) "Shooting Date" and/or "Shooting Time."
2. Adding a Time Stamp to the .JPEG Image
Select "Insert Text...," click in the image where you want the stamp placed then click "Import Shooting Date/Time."

It is likely that an internal integrated circuit in the DC/DC board is damaged.
You will need to have your camera reviewed by a qualified technician to have it repaired, since it requires open the camera and evaluate the DC/DC board performance.

Hello: Try updating the firmware for the camers and software. Go to canon and download the firmware to a flash drive and connect your camera and install the latest firmware from canon.

E16 Error code (on all canon compacts) means that there is something
wrong with the lens mechanism and it cannot contract/extract/focus etc.
Canon suggests removing the battery, and leaving it out for about half an hour. Make sure that the battery is fully charged before reinstalling it.
Also if you have had the camera for over a year, the battery may need to be replaced.
If this does not work, the camera will need to be sent to Canon for repair.

The only way to get the date and time on the pictures now is to use a photo editing program that has a text option. (e.g. Paint, Photoshop, etc.)
What you need to do if you want the date and time is to use the menu options on your camera to select it. Then when you download them the date and time will be on them.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for using Fixya.
