Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

RAW images won't upload

I've had my Canon G9 for a couple months, and this has been a recurring problem. When pictures are taken in camera RAW, they won't upload onto my computer. I get an error message that states that the files are unreadable. Is there any way I can recover these specific pictures?

    I have a canon g9 and it used to download jpeg and cr2 (raw) photos. My iphoto would put each photo side by side. Now, it only downloads the jpegs. I use a card reader and I've tried to download it with photoshop as well. Please help.

You can also try photo recovery software to rescue the lost photos, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.

Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Are you using the camera to upload the photos? I recommend that you get a SDHC reader(USB) and copy the files off of the SD card onto your harddrive. it is a common problem that RAW images cannot be read by windows or certain programs. Photoshop CS3 and later are able to read and open the RAW images from this camera if your "camera raw" portion of adobe is current. it is good practice anyway to load your photos directly from the SD card. I had a G9 since it first came out and now i have a G10--i have never even attempted to upload from the camera. don't let this discourage you from shooting RAW because it is the primary reason in my opinion for owning a G9 or G10. Let me know if this does not answer your problem...dj

I can't view or upload the pictures I have taken on Manual mode only. I take the CF card out to view and upload the pictures I need, but when I tried to do so tonight, the manual mode pictures do not show...


Check to see whether you are saving them to an unusual location on the CF card. If you are finding the image files from the card but just cannot open them, you may have taken the pictures as "raw" format images. If they are in "raw" format, you may need special software to open them on the computer.

This G9 problem is really common. These cameras develop a problem with screws coming loose inside and causing a short in the camera. The place that a lot of people go for help with this problem is: www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the Canon Powershot cameras and nothing else and they do excellent work. The best part with them is that they do a correction inside the camera so the problem won't keep happening. They service the whole camera up and include the shipping going back, it comes to $89 with them. The work quality through them can't be touched, they are the place if you have a Canon. I hope that helps some. Good luck with the problem.

My Canon G9 review function does not work. It flashes the last picture taken only.


It is not the problem with the camera. When the last picture is displayed, you can turn the control dial (the vertical ring around the four-way directional buttons) or use the right and left arrows to navigate to the previous or next image.

Canon g9 camera doesnt work in raw only jpeg


Go to the menu for the camera and look for "SAVE". you should have the choice in which format to save the pictures. Select "RAW" and then exit the menu. The camera should now save in RAW format. Some one or something probably switched the setting (such as reset camera).

Can I export photos from iPhoto back into the Canon G9 PowerShot?


No, you can't.
You only can transfer the pictures back to the camera if the pictures were taken by the same model cameras, plus the pictures were not modified.

I'm unable to download photos from the disk.


You may be saving the images in the RAW format, which requires matching software to read. Most kiosks can't read them. If this is the case, switch back to jpeg format.

How to download photos taken with jpeg and raw at the same time


Can you use a memory card reader? Connect directly from the camera may not be allowing you to specify which pictures you can download. You can get an SDHC memory card reader from OfficeMax and pretty much anywhere else.
If you get a memory card reader make sure it is compatible with SDHC cards. If you get a 4GB or higher card you might not be able to use it with some other card readers.

RAW setting


Your camera must be on either Aperture priority (AV), Shutter priority (TV), or in Manual mode to change to this setting. I discovered the same thing. One thing you might to to is have it set to RAW + JPEG. You get two pictures in one shot and can quickly upload one to sites when you need it.

According to the manual, you cannot change the file type, as it only can save images in JPEG or RAW format.

You can, however save the images in RAW format, and convert them with the supplied software.

Please refer to page 80 of the user guide.

If you don't have the manual, you can download / view it here:
