Trouble with transfer to my computer

,Hello..I recently purchased a canon powershot a560digital camera and was stoked because of all the great and priceless pictures I took over the Holidays. I went to transfer my photo's to the computer, and it seemed to only do the pictures from 2009,and deleted all of my photos from 2008, on my sandisk card, and now I can't find my 2008 pictures anywhere. It makes me sick to my stomach, someone told me I might be able to retrieve them if i use a usb cable?? Please help

Try this attach you USB cable to the Computer and Camera. It should find the device and download the pictures itself. That is how it works for my Canon powershot A 80.

When I try to download most recent pictures I am forced to download all that are on camera


It depends on what software you are using to transfer photos from the camera to your computer.
If you install and use the "Camera Window" transfer software Canon included with the camera, you will see you have three modes to choose from, including the option to transfer just the photos on your camera that have not yet been transferred.

Connect the camera with a USB cable to your computer.
Power up the camera.
The computer will detect the camera, and open a dialog box offering you a choice of programs on your computer that can handle photo transfers.

If you choose the Camera Window software, it will open and present a menu with three choices of action. The first option is, "Import images from Camera." Select this.

Another submenu opens presenting these three options:

1. Import Untransferred images. (this is what you said you want)
2. Select images to Import. (manually select just certain ones)
3. Import All images (automatically transfers every image on the card)

Camera Window is just one of many available image transfer applications you could use. They all do essentially the same three things outlined above, including "Import Untransferred images."

Canon included a couple other utility programs on the CD that came with your Powershot A490 camera. One of them, "Zoom Broswer EX" enables you to reload photos from your computer, back on to your camera's image card, if you want to do that.

Trouble with downloading photos


Consider 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. The card reader doesn't care what camera took the pictures, so you can use it with any camera (assuming the card itself fits).

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 Canon ZoomBrowser or any other photo cataloging program.

Good Morning, I have a Canon Powershot S230


Skip this kind of transfer, save time by buying and using a card reader/writer. This way it is not necessary to have the need for any software on the computer. You can transfer any files from the card to the computer, and you can write to the card as well, if necessary. I recommend never to write to the card until you have transferred all files from the card to the hard drive. That is because by writing to the card, you may delete files.

Trouble viewing pictures transfered to the memory card


The process only works one way...you can download pictures taken on your camera to your computer but you cannot download pictures from your computer to the card and play them back on your camera.

Does "memory card full" mean you have to purchase another for canon powershot sd750 or can you erase?


You can either erase the pictures or transfer them to a computer using the supplied USB cable or remove the flash memory and insert directly into the computer's sd card port.
