Question about Canon Cameras
I've tried: rebooting computer, changing camera batteries, unplugging camera from computer and plugging back in
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.

SOURCE: Downloading to computer
Cliff notes version: Try it with the "Solution Disk" in the drive.
Detailed version: I had the same problem, but when I re-installed the "Solution Disk", it said, LEAVE THE DISK IN THE DRIVE. I turned my camera on -- connected to the computer and with the disk in the drive -- and the program started automatically, instructing me to click on the Upload button, which looks like a printer with a cable coming off it (it's to the right of the Delete button and underneath the slide-control that shifts from Camera mode to Preview on my A570IS; it will light up when it's ready).
Before uploading . . . Click on Menu (on camera) to verify your Direct Transfer options. Mine was set on Wallpaper, so it only uploaded the one image and automatically set it as my computer wallpaper. (A neat feature, but not what I was looking for.) Set it to "All images" or "New images" and click on the Upload (lit up) button on the camera.
Note: If it doesn't come up automatically, start the ZoomBrowser program and click on Tasks (to show the menu options below it). The first option is Acquire & Camera Settings; click on that. Then click on the appropriate item (Connect to Camera, Connect to EOS Camera, or Acquire images from Memory Card). You can set it to automatically launch by clicking that option on the main software page.
Finally . . . After it's working, confirm/modify your Preferences in the ZoomBrowser and Utility programs; even if you don't change anything, this will let you know how it's set up.

Do you happen to be on a Mac when you downloaded the photos? If so, make sure to empty the trash (while still having the camera plugged in) after you delete them.
