Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Just tried to hook up my camera to my computer and the computer is not recognizing the camera for some reason. Is it possible that the USB cable is bad. I am not getting an error message and we have done this many times without the software installed. We installed the software that comes with it and it wn't allow us to do it either. We just downloaded norton antivirus 2009 to our computer and this is the first time we have tried since doing that. I think the USB cable is bad but it's pretty new. Any thoughts?

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT will not connect to computer.


Please discard that the USB port or the USB cable are defective. You can do it if you try to hook your camera in other personal computer using the same USB cable. If it works, then follow the next instructions.

Connect your camera to the PC thru the USB cable and turn it on.

If you are using Windows, go to the Control panel - System - Hardware - Devices - and check if there is any device that was not recognized by Windows. Such devices are marked with a yellow question mark.

If so, get into the device item and with right mouse click, select to update the device driver.

If there was not unrecognized device, then you can unistall your USB port driver and then run a change hardware status to recognize the USB port again, then run the update driver routine.

Can't get my computer to recognize the device


You may use different USB ports. Make sure your computer USB is v2.0 Computer's Bios and Chipset update could be a possible solution. You may also try Firewire/1394 Connection which is more reliable and faster for video editing and conversion.

Usually in professional use hook up the Camcorder directly to the computer is not very preferred, Using DV converters are more common such as Canopus products as you can find them on www.canopus.com

Pc cant recognize the camera on the USB port


What is the Pc doing that shows you it is not recognizing the camera?
Have you looked in My computer at your drives to see if it is showing there? For some reason mine sometimes shows up my F drive instead of my camera drive. Then you can just click on the drive and open the folder for the photos.

It is normal behavior for the Kodak C613's screen to go off when connected to usb. With Kodak's usb driver installed, you should see two disk drives Appear in Windows Explorer. If not, please advise. The Easyshare software should recognize the camera as well.

Camera No Longer Being Recognized


Does it connect to the PC via a USB cable? Then try connecting to a different USB port or if you have try a new USB cable. I had the same problem with my IXUS 400 and changing to a new USB port, directly to the PC - not a USB hub, it worked. However now I have several issues with my camera - no sound or image on the LCD screen, but I think these are unrelated.

Camera undetected by computer


Although I haven't had this issue with my S2 IS specifically, I have with 2 other digital cameras. The solution in both cases was to power the camera on BEFORE plugging in the USB cable.

In other words - Plug the computer end of the USB cable into the computer, do not plug the camera end in. Power up the camera in "picture view" mode, THEN plug the USB cable into the camera.

Not sure about Vista, but with XP, you should hear the familiar "Dong-ding" as the system recognizes the camera.

I was told by Best Buy I could use the USB to transfer video which is not the case, you have to get the firewire cable. To get the computer to recognize the camera (for still images not video) you have to have the memory card in the camera then hook up the USB.
