How do i re-import pictures from my canon power shot d10 to my computer after having done once? i lost the pics and it doesn't allow me to re-import again because i did it once already.


Remove the memory card from camera, put it into a reader and connect the reader to the computer via the usb port. Then using windows explorer locate the folder where your pictures are, create a new directory in your computer hard drive, and Copy the pictures you want into your hard drive.

When I try to download most recent pictures I am forced to download all that are on camera


It depends on what software you are using to transfer photos from the camera to your computer.
If you install and use the "Camera Window" transfer software Canon included with the camera, you will see you have three modes to choose from, including the option to transfer just the photos on your camera that have not yet been transferred.

Connect the camera with a USB cable to your computer.
Power up the camera.
The computer will detect the camera, and open a dialog box offering you a choice of programs on your computer that can handle photo transfers.

If you choose the Camera Window software, it will open and present a menu with three choices of action. The first option is, "Import images from Camera." Select this.

Another submenu opens presenting these three options:

1. Import Untransferred images. (this is what you said you want)
2. Select images to Import. (manually select just certain ones)
3. Import All images (automatically transfers every image on the card)

Camera Window is just one of many available image transfer applications you could use. They all do essentially the same three things outlined above, including "Import Untransferred images."

Canon included a couple other utility programs on the CD that came with your Powershot A490 camera. One of them, "Zoom Broswer EX" enables you to reload photos from your computer, back on to your camera's image card, if you want to do that.

I have a new computer and have lost the cd to download pictures. What can I do?


You should still be able to download the pictures by either putting the memory card in your computer's card reader (if you have one) or by plugging the camera into the computer by USB.

Once you do that Windows should pop up a message asking you if you want to import them. You can either do that or copy them manually in My Computer.

Alternatively you can get the drivers and software that came with the disc from:
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_a_series/powershot_a95#DriversAndSoftware

You'll just need to select your OS version.

Please leave feedback if this was helpful.

Trying to download my pictures from Canon Powershot A430 onto my new laptop Windows 7. Downloaded the disk and now trying without success to download my pictures onto the computer. Help??


Supported windows Operating system Windows 98 Second edition(SE)
Windows Me
Windows 2000 Service pack 4
Windows XP SP 1 and SP 2 Canon PowerShot A430 has no update about the new driver software for windows 7 Try doing this direct transfer in your computer 1. Connect the camera to your computer using the supplied USB cable of your camera. 2. Set the mode dial to (playback) and turn on the power.
The camera and computer will be able to communicate. 3. If there is no pop up window that has Canon CameraWindow, Click the [Start] menu and select [all Programs] or [Programs]. followed by [Canon Utilities], [Camera Window], [PowerShot-IXY-IXUS-DV 6] and [CameraWindow] 4. Download the images.
* Download the images using the camera or the computer.
* By default, the downloaded images are saved into the [My Pictures] folder. ** If the above process does not work you can just use the memory card of your camera and connect that on your laptop. (some laptop has built in card reader) The memory card works like a flash drive and you can just transfer files like transferring from one folder to another. ** Issue on the operating system compatibility.

Unable to import photos to laptop


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 Windows Photo Gallery or Picasa.

Download pictures


Your camera should have come with a USB cable to plug into your computer. Plug the camera in and make sure it is turned on. You may have to wait a few seconds while your computer installs a driver for the camera. When it is done a window will popup asking what you want to do with the camera. Click Import Pictures and follow the wizard.

Cannot find a driver for Canon PowerShot S45 for Windows Vista


When connecting a digital camera to your computer with the usb connector, then turning it on the memory card in the camera becomes a removable drive under My Computer and will also bring up a dialogue window that will ask if you want to import pictures, etc. There is no need for a driver.

Canon Powershot Importing Problems


Hi,

Depending on the operating system running in your office PC which could either be Windows XP or Vista, drivers are downloadable/available from the Canon website here.

Additionally, you can also verify if the Canon PowerShot S400 is Vista compatible. Should you still be having issues after downloading OS appropriate drivers, pls post back.

Alternately, you can remove the Canon PowerShot S400's memory card and pop it into a memory card reader with the USB plug connected to the PC's USB port. Windows will treat the memory card + reader as an external storage device and would be a matter of drag & drop. copy/paste.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
