"save folder not found" comes up when trying to download pictures

Hello out there! I've downloaded pictures from my canon many times, and now when I try to do so it says "save folder not found". I can see the pictures that are on my camera on my computer, but cannot download them.

Any suggestions ? Feeling quite lost....

    Hello, and thanks, but I did try that first thing. Even though it didn't work, I really appreciate your efforts on my behalf, and timely response. What finally worked was going to canon and downloading an updated zoombrowzer - there must have been a glitch in the program?

    Anyway - thanks for being there!

I wish to scan pictures on my canon 6400f, but the cd that came with it didn't contain a manual. I want to scan pictures but come up against a wall when asked for the file to save to.

I can't find a 6400f I can find an 8400f on both the Uk:-

and usa website:-

Where you download manuals and software

When asked for a file to save it to this means you probably have to name the file you want the picture saved as and nominate a folder of place where you need to save it, ie your photos folder or make a new folder and save it to there.

Trying to find some downloadable software that enables me to scan documents off of my CANON PIXMA MP160 printer to my Windows Vista Computer, and im having no luck trying to find exactly what im looking...


Here is a link for software downloads. Select your OS from the drop down.

Canon Pixma MP160 Downloads

This is an exe file so I would not select RUN when the download window comes up. Select SAVE and save it to your desktop.

You will have to uninstall any software you have already on the computer and make sure the printer is not listed in your Printers folder.

To install, disconnect one end of the USB cable but leave the printer powered up. Double-click the file on the desktop that you downloaded. Connect the USb cable when prompted.

There are also other links on the page above. Manuals, specs, accessories, etc.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do I get the pictures downloaded from the computer that was sent to me. I am trying to get the pictures to put into an album from people that sent me pictures.

dont quite know what you are asking here?
are they already on your pc and you want them printed or do you want them downloaded from an e-mail?
if you want them from an e-mail, near the top of the e-mail you will find a file such as 'pic121109' on it with your mouse and and a menu will save....add a destination for the file.... before you start, create a new folder on your desktop named say "downloaded pictures for album" and save into this may have to download each photo at a time. hope this helps:)

Save folder not found

The save folder it is looking for probably doesn't exist. If you are using Canon CameraWindow DC, cancel out of the download popup by choosing "operate on images on camera". Then click on the button that looks like a folder with the word "set" below it. Click browse and select the folder you want your images saved to. (For example, "My Pictures".) Now click the button that has an arrow pointing from a camera to a computer. Your images should begin downloading to your computer without any error.

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.
