My computer is saying there are no pictures to show on the camera but in the camera itself, pictures are there. Somehow the computer just cant read the camera pictures of my digital cannon ixus 70. thanks...

hello mjrefran,
it's hard to diognisticate from distance, but i will try to help you. if you connect your cam with a cable to your pc and it recognize it and you dont see any pics, then try to remove cams driver and reinstall it. you can also check the memory card with an optional card reader directly on your pc. the problem can also be with the card itself, try reformating card but you will lose the data on it (do it at least)
feel free to contact me if something is unclear or you got questions.

Canon XSI showing "busy" when taking multiple shots

It can be that your batteries are low and takes longer to charge the flash... It can also be that your memory card is a slow on. If the red processing light on the back of the camera is staying on a long time, it means the camera is having trouble feeding the picture to the card... You might try decreasing the picture quality a little...

An update from Mccoyb:

I have to take back some of the previous conclusions about the problem being with the Canon Camera. I based conclusion on the belief that I'd previously had the same problems on a different computer. I think that is now incorrect.

Adding to previous comments above:
I pulled the memory card out of my camera and into an SD CardReader. Plugged the cardreader into the USB port where the camera had been. Again, problems. I switched USB ports. Still, problems reading the card reliably just as the camera had done.

I took the same USB cable to another computer. This time, I could access all data flawlessly on BOTH the cardreader the camera. On this computer, no Canon software had been installed, so I used Microsoft's tool (automatically pops up when camera turned on) to copy the pictures to the hard drive.

I'm starting to think my USB drivers on one computer are somehow completely hosed up. So many different hardware USB ports should not simultaneously start failing. In addition, I tried a THUMB DRIVE and it had very slow performance and problems recognizing the drive letter. However, I tried an external 500 GB hard drive, and the drive letter came up without any problems.

Something may have changed with a Microsoft update that caused USB drivers and/or handling of the USB ports to change. Either that, or there is a virus impacting only the USB ports.

Anyhow, I don't believe it's the camera now or the memory cards.
