I had the same problem: the camera just doesn't appear in the Computer resources althought it should work like any USB disk. I have this problem only on windows 2000, while on a newer PC i have Windows XP and everything works just fine. I was finally able to solve the problem downloading the getcanon! application. This small software (DL file is less than 2MB) can recognize several Canon cameras, connect and download pictures eventually sorting them into folders by date, and finally delete pictures from the camera. Basically, anything i could have desired. Of course you still need some other software to view/modify pictures.

The popup would be the windows wizard wanting to assist with downloading image files. There's 2 popups one is the wizard and you'll click on transfer images & it walks you step by step to download the images. The other one is just a one click option & you can copy the images files to your computer. But since those options don't seem to work for you - one solution would be to click on "my computer" and you'll either find your camera or memory card listed along side your computers C drive. If you're downloading images from the camera - it needs to be hooked up via the cable + the camera probably needs to be turned on. Some cameras also have a setting or button to turn in order to download the images.

Computer will not recognize canon A70 Camera


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.

My computer will not detect my camera when connected.


Suggest with the camera disconnected from the computer, you uninstall, then reinstall the Canon software. (Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, or Start>All Programs>Canon>Uninstall) Windows is a 'funny animal', and drivers need to be occasionally reinstalled.

Canon Powershot A70 Digital


When I got my A70 I got a CD with the software. If I connect the camera with USB cable to the computer, set the little lever on the back for the camera to display whatever pictures are in it, and turn the camera on, the computer recognizes the camera, opens the software and leads me through the process.
If you have some other photo software than the Canon software, it should still work.

Remove the Camera software. Assuming the camera is OK Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista will see the camera without software. Try it and come back
