Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Canon Powershot SD1000 acts like it shuts off when I try to upload pics to my computer. When I plug the usb into the computer and the camera into the usb the Camera will still work perfectly fine in picture and video mode, but when I put it in the mode to view my pictures because once I do that the computer dectects the camera to open the program to transfer the pictures the screen goes blank before my computer can detect it and it looks like it shuts off, but thje green power light is still on and if I switch it to a different mode it works, but having it in the display mode is the only way i can transfer pictures but each time I switch it to that it "appears" to shut off before my computer can detect it

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.


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.

Since your two cameras have the same problem with the same computer, I would like to suggest you to connect those cameras to another computer. It looks like the problem is on the computer side.

Connection of camera to computer


This can cause by a bad usb cable that you're using to connect the camera to the computer, so better try to use another USB cable and also connect the camera to another USB port on your computer so we can check if the USB port is bad or not...

Need to download software for canon powershot sd 600


If you plug in your camera via USB to any computer, you should be able to access the card in the camera and transfer the files to the MY PICTURES location. You can also download Picasa which will do the same thing.

If you must use the software that came with the camera here is the site:
